    I have been out of the android loop for a while, as I've been pretty happy with my Moto G2, then Moto G3 (moto has had EXCELLENT customer service while I've had these phones).

    I think my moto G3 takes good photos, but I'm in the mood for a new phone, and was eyeing the Moto G4 Plus, but I kind of want to experience something new and different from the moto UI, (not necessarily looking at the launcher, because I always use Nova), I also don't want to downgrade on the camera.

    I've always tried to stay under $200, which means I've either bought on Amazon Warehouse, Craigslist or just found an inexpensive phone. I also always try to get unlocked phones so I don't have to deal with bloatware, (I'm not much into rooting anymore these days).

    So what is my best bet for an unlocked phone around or under $200? (I have Straight Talk).

    Right now I'm using my mom's ZTE Z Max Pro for a "change of scenery", but I don't love the camera, especially when flash is used, and it's too big for my taste.

    I was assisting a G4 user with an SD card issue today and was very impressed with the image quality from its camera. If the 16MP shooter in the G4 Plus is of the same quality then it's a solid contender.

    I know you want something different, but I also got my wife a Moto G4 Plus and she loves it and pictures are great, hope that helps.

    Zmax Pro is a $99 device so the camera isn't top of the line. If you experiment with the manual settings, you can get good pictures but I don't know if that is good enough for you.

    Besides the great suggestions above, are you considering a used (previous flagship)? Some of those have great cameras but are now below $200.
