budget hp recommendation - don't need latest model

hi all

am looking for a new hp to replace my dying samsung s7.

have looked around and i'm leaning towards xiaomi 9 pro, but wondering if the hp experts can recommend something cheaper that's more suited to my needs.

i don't need the latest hp model, just something that can last at least 2 years or ideally longer. i'm ok to adapt to different OS if needed, so that's not an issue.

budget: $400 max

what i'm looking for:
1. decent quality cam to take videos/photos of my ninja toddler
2. additional SD card slot for videos/photos
3. long battery life - pref. with fast charging
4. warranty

what i use it for:
1. take photos/videos
2. stream netflix/youtube
3. google/browse/read stuff & buy things online (qoo10, shopee, etc.)
4. bank transactions
5. call/whatsapp/telegram

thanks in advance.

Pixel 3a is only S$409 right now.

Only issue I can see is the lack of SD Card slot.

Top up a little bit, get redmi K30 Pro 5G from Qoo10 with $50 coupon for $479 before any GC and CC discount.
