BLU Tank II T193 Unlocked GSM Dual-SIM Cell Phone w/ Camera and 1900 mAh Big Battery.

This was usually the phone I went for when looking for a disposable communication option ( Burner phone for the ninjas out there).

It has a camera, noise quality is very good, battery lasts, Micro-USB capable so no need for some alien connector or adapter. And it’s cheap at around 20 dollars. I usually used a short-term SIM card option like https://zipsim.us/ . Drop the SIM in and you are ready to call and discard when it’s usefulness passes. There are loads of other considerations but specifically answering the question of what to get that is worth it in this post.
