My ovveriding criterion whenever I change my phone is the camera. Right now I use a Google Pixel 3a, the cheapest phone that Google makes. You should be able to pick one up at this stage for less than 300 STG. The photos from the camera are simply stunningly good; so good that I have actually stopped obsessively reading online reviews of camera phones. (Steve Litchfield is probably wondering what's happened to me.) I cannot give a phone a higher recommendation than that. It's important to note that phones are only really good for one kind of photography, and that's street photography. All my family photos are done using the Pixel, as well. Phones have already killed off the compact, and I think the days of M4/3 are numbered (disclaimer: I use M4/3). I'm curious to know what you all think of specific phone models, and particularly if it's worth getting one with three or four separate cameras on the back. I prefer the simple one-camera approach myself.
