How's this phone in 2020? Worth it for used $431 "excellent" condition?

Looking to upgrade from a LG G7 ThinQ, yet I also don't want to break the bank. I feel going for a 2019 phone would be better than a 2020 budget option like Pixel 4a or Galaxy S20 FE.

There's a best buy near me with 1 available at that price point.

Hi, not sure if you already made your choice and I don't know LG G7 ThinQ so I can't compare.
However, IMO Xperia 5 is still a very good phone.
I bought Xperia 5II and Huawei P40, but I returned them and kept Xperia 5 because in my opinion there is no huge improvement in these newer phones in comparison.
Just be aware that Android 11 will be the last update on this phone.

BTW probably you can find a cheaper Xperia 5 now. $431 seems a bit expensive for a used one.
