Advice on next budget smartphone please? criteria:


Novice Member
Hello all.
I'm in the market for a sub-€200/£180 phone (could go to €225 or so if it would be a worthwhile investment) . I'm finding the choice overwhelming. When I bought my LG K8 about 3 years ago, many of the newer brands weren't around in Europe at least.
I still use and like the K8 but the camera has become slow to respond and I'd like better zoom and a wide angle option, if possible.
My main criteria are:
decent camera/s , photo abilities,
dual SIM would be ideal (and not one slot for microSD OR second SIM, but both),
fair amount of RAM,
not too large dimension - I like K8 size - 71.5 x 144.6 x 8.7 mm,
easy, user friendly music player interface,
photo management.
decent battery life would be good but I've got used to charging 1x per day, at least.
Camera security with fingerprint, for example, isn't so important
5g not critical
Hope you guys can give me some recommendations. Thanks for any forthcoming!
