Used Smart Phone For Back Up

Of course there won't be a warranty, so it has to be really cheap.
Does Tuk Com have them or need to go to weekly market kind of place. Where else?

Not many people change their phones often if it works well, unless making a fashion statement. These phones are at best around 12 months old. So chances of getting a good one in this range is small.
The next step down are those who are short on funds and see this as an alternative to the pawnshop.
And finally, phones with issues. Dropped. Drowned. Any phone over 12 months old will need a replacement battery soon (providing you can remove it!)
And perhaps the one thing you don't want to know about, are tracker programs embedded in the phone that can wipe the whole thing in an instant. Some can be almost impossible to detect and therefore remove. Resetting does not necessarily remove them, especially rooted or jailbroken ones.
So just go get a cheap, new, 3G phone. It's only an emergency backup, right?

And it asks for a shit load of permissions whenever you first access an app. They look like options but if you deny all of them, no access. Like the clock. Do I want the Clock to make and manage phone calls? Allow clock to access photos, media and files!? No! I want the clock to tell me the fucking time!
Get the same shit out of Browser.

I use 2 phones because of different countries, currently my iPhone 7 is my Vietnam Phone my 6 is my Thai and my 5 was passed on to my Brother in Law.
Probably will upgrade to iPhone X when back in Bangkok for TET / CNY for no reason except as Vintage Kwai puts it I am a "Fashionista"

it is so old it thinks the current year is fiction, so I have to play with it every time I go to Bangkok, to get the calendar days and dates to line up.
But it still works just fine for what I need to do, which is phone calls and the occasional text.
