Budget phone buying advice with good camera <$150

I am looking a budget smartphone with decent camera as my top priority. I am ok if the phone is a couple of generations old.

My budget is under $150. I recently saw Umidigi A5 pro but felt the camera is weak point. I may be wrong, this can be fixed with software upgrade.

Can you advise if this is a good purchase ?


Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I got one of the A5 Pro , but I already have a Realme 3 that I had to buy on an emergency while I Was still in the philippines (and before the A5 Pro arrived) , and I am keeping the realme 3 because all my apps are already configured and I am used to it ... the Umidigi A5 Pro boots up and seems to work just fine , but I don't need it anymore . If you want to save yourself the 1 month wait time and are willing to pay a bit extra , PM me , I am willing to sell . All the peel-off stickers that come attached to the front and back of the phone are still on the phone . If I didn't have a Realme 3 with 64GB memory I'd be using the Umidigi but there's no point in letting it just sit in the drawer until the day that my Realme breaks , I don't think ... ? I'm in the GTA
