No more than $400 for myself. The phone I have now, a Moto G5 Plus, I purchased off of Amazon for $230 nearly 3 years ago. It's still holding up pretty well and looking to get at least another year out of it.
I wouldn't spend more than a days gross wages on a phone. I also limit vehicle purchases to one to two months gross wages. My general rule for a house is no more than two years of gross wages.
Every dollar you spend is adding time to the amount of your life you must spend working.
