he's just a skater boy (who wants to record his sessions)

Please recommend a not-insanely-priced phone with good audio and video/photo capability.

I'd like to get my son a new-to-him phone for Christmas this year. He has had an iPhone 4 for years and the camera doesn't work anymore. He'll mostly use it for texting and photo/video of skateboarding sessions. I would not like to spend $1,000 on a new iPhone but I'd like him to have good sound and action-picture quality. (He has a GoPro but this is for everyday use.) Hoping to spend no more than $400? Either Apple or Android are fine. We have a good local reseller but I'd appreciate recommendations for online resellers too.

IPhone SE! It's the exact same size as the 5, but nearly as good as the 6, and it's fairly cheap!

Moto g5 plus is cheap and excellent, comfortably as good as an equivalent iphone and significantly cheaper.
