Cheap, Android, good photos, fingerprint, microSD slot, as small as possible, with least amount of bloatware.

Hi!
I'm currently using Samsung A20s, the cheapest phone I could find at the time, because my old Huawei P8 Lite 2017 broke, and I needed something ASAP.
But, unfortunately it is slow, not responsive, the fingerprint scanner is laggy, I don't always get notified about new messages, the photos it makes are HORRIBLE.

I would like to buy a new one.
Unfortunately, I know that prices will differ. Different countries - different pricing.

Phones I was looking at:

Oppo A91 (I'm not sure if the camera is good or not)
Huawei Nova 5T - no microSD slot
Moto G8 Plus ?

Which one of those would be the best all around? Best photos, responsive, the best fingerprint scanner, good battery. Is there a better phone it that price range?
They're all around 900-1000zł (PLN) which is roughly 240 - 270USD.
The cheaper - the better. I use my phone a lot for work etc. and they don't have very easy life, so I don't like spending a lot on them.
But A20s is just... too cheap. Everything with it is just wrong...

Android is a must have because of the applications I need, and also iOS isn't very popular in this part of world.

Is it good ,,out of the box"? Or do I have to manually adjust all settings to make somewhat decent picture?

yes it is "good out of the box", but for certain special uses, you might need some calibrations, such as warming it or somethings like that

Thanks for the answer.
Main question is:
Is it gonna make much better photos than this?
These are photos I took with my Samsung A20a which is not enough for me...

One more good thing is that the A20s is currently about 50USD more expensive than when I was buying it in september so... I may be able to resell it for the same price as I did pay for it new :) (it's only 2 months old, still has full warranty, it was 500PLN / 134USD then, now is closer to 200USD) :)

yeah that should really help, maybe now you could go for a higher budget?

Nope, I'm not spending more on phone than 1000PLN (270USD). I'm not gentle with them...

then, selling the phone will help a lot, almost filling your full budget.

Well, partially - yes. That was the plan. Buying A20s was a mistake...
I spend 500PLN on it, and OPPO A91 is currently on sale for 900PLN, so I will have to spend 400PLN instead of 900 :)
