Maybe try the Samsung A32 5G it's the latest low end option, costs $369. Or you can get a Motorola from Costco or motorola.ca.
Public Mobile 5GB $33

We don't have 5G. Wouldn't a51 be better than a32?

samsung A71 will likely have better battery life than A51, due to having a more power-efficient chipset

I saw these were available for around 250 on eBay. Is there anything else new that is better at this price? Might need to replace my Essential phone soon.

Depends on what you feature-wise. Redmi Note 10 Pro, Poco X3 or M3 Pro, Realme 8 Pro, Pixel 4a, and the Samsung A32

No way only 720p. The decade old note 4 I gave her years ago has a 1440p

I didn't know TCL makes phones that's interesting. I'm guessing they are new. Worth it over competition? Concerned about software updates and UI.

Can't get some of these here? If they are banned I would rather avoid them no matter the reason for not being allowed. Pixel 4a too expensive. A32 only 720p

What you want for features doesn't fit your budget if you're not willing to look at the Poco/Xiaomi route. I would recommend finding a 1-2 year old flagship

There's also the Realme 7 which I think has the best performance. Although it's only an LCD screen. But going for 200 USD.

Their numbering certainly is difficult to compare.
