I don't use my phone that much. I was thinking I could get a nicer second hand phone for the same price as a really low tier budget phone but I just don't know anything about what phones are good or safe to get without a warranty. The only touch screen phone I've ever had is this Moto G2 that seemed like it was starting to die, but I reset it and it's running OK. I paid $180 for it and I was hoping to spend less this time. I have no use for a huge screen and this is clearly the main option culling my selections, trying to keep the height under 6 inches. I want a phone with a 3.5mm that can run a fairly sensitive IEM without noticeable hiss and a storage expansion slot. GSM unlocked. A better camera than my Moto G2 which has a really shite one.
The options I have been considering around $110 or less:
* Whichever I can get cheapest and in best shape second hand between LG V30, V30s/+, V35, and G7 or Moto Z2 Play
* New/Open Box Huawei P Smart, LG Q7, Sony Xperia XA2, Nokia 6.1
The options around $140-$170:
* New/Open Box Moto Z2 Play, Sony Xperia XZ1, LG V30
Genuinely appreciate any input or suggestions.
