    My wife's p20 Pro gave up the ghost and we got her a p40 pro but the lack of Google services is becoming an issue so need to go back to the drawing board.

    Half thinking of a p30pro to be honest but anything else around 500 euro you'd go for with camera the main consideration.

    What about the camera is her favorite feature, it may help narrow the strengths.

    Bought the wife a Google pixel 4a 5g as a gift last Christmas , one of the main considerations was that the camera was well regarded at that 400/500 price point(and at time they were also offering free bose headphones).

    Only yesterday she was saying how good the photos are with it.

    I am not hugely knowledgeable on phones and cameras , others might advise better . I believe the camera on the pixel 4a 5g is nothing special but the the software compensates.

    My wife got a pixel 4a a few months ago too. Photos are fantastic and she loves the phone. She likes the fact that its not a massive phone either. Bellroy do a nice leather case for it that she got too.

    It's almost exclusively used for pics of the kids either portrait style or just normal so not using zoom or anything like that

    She has a good eye for them but quick shutter speed obviously important as well!

    Pixel then, as above is the stand out for that sort of use , great image processing lovely form factor. We've one in the house here too and can't fault it . Nice if it would have Dual sim though.

    Plus regular and up to date Google OS builds.

    Any reason to pay more for the 5 over the 4a?

    Small bit more bump larger screen. But tbh I like the form for the 4a. And I've a note plus. It's a smooth buttery phone 4 a.

    On that budget I’d get the Pixel 5 for the extra camera if it’s the main consideration.

    Hard enough to come across at 500 quid at the moment

    Yeah it’s a while since I looked and I see it out of stock in a lot of the places it was, which has pushed up prices. I’d say the 4A too so.

    Another is the Mi10T Pro. But it's a heavy beast. Great camera though. It has OIS which many at this price don't.

    Pixel 4a 5G or Pixel 5 otherwise.
