Re: too many choices not sure what to get
Android isn't great on batteries, but there are ways to increase the life on any phone - Greenify, Better Batttery Stats, etc. Search the web for information - there's just too much to present in one post. There are sites devoted to just one or two methods.

So consider that you're going to use the camera for snapshots, not studio photography. Even a professional, shooting ads in a studio with a digital camera, isn't going to blow the shot up to 10 feet wide. (Kodak has slides in Grand Central Station in NYC that look pretty good from where you can see them - about 50 feet away, down on the floor. (They're mounted on a balcony up near the ceiling.) They're huge - feet by feet. And the resolution doesn't look much different than a slide you'd dhow in your living room. Get up on that balcony and look at the slides from a couple of feet away and you'll see how terrible they are. Grainy doesn't begin to describe it. The resolution of the camera needed depends on what you're going to do with the picture. Post it on Facebook? The web is about 75dpi - pretty coarse. /You don't need a 10mpx camera to do that.
If you want really fine pictures, buy a good Canon or Fuji camera.
There are many of them. Narrow down the choice, then check the specs on he ones you've decided on. (Most of the time, you'll only be able to see media [pictures and videos] anyway. If you want to mirror the screen, get a Samsung phone and a Samsung TV. Otherwise, all your TV needs is DLNA capability (or an HDMI input and a DLNA adapter with HRMI output.)

A 32GB camera and cheap? Swappa About the only other way is a cheap Chinese knockoff (you can get a 32GB "Note 3" (it even has the Samsung logo on the case) for about $200-$300. But it's not really a Note 3, and many of them come with about 4GB of user storage available.
And more memory as 16 GB just won’t do anymore.
1) I'd never buy a camera without a user-replaceable battery. IF the battery starts overheating, it's fast to rip the back off and toss the battery. If you can't do that you toss the phone. The difference is in the cost - replacing a bad battery is a lot cheaper than replacing a phone. (Lithium can, under the right [wrong?] conditions, explode. With enough force to remove your leg at the hip. Just ask Sony about the fires they had to put out - literally - when batteries in Sony phones caught fire a few years ago.)
Phones I’ve considered moto x (if I can get 32 GB) quite cheap and seems powerful enough
S4 although more expensive than moto x (nice if I could get snapdragon 800)
Lg g2 would be my choice if I could get 32 GB but struggling (nice snapdragon 800 decent camera)
2) I'd never buy a phone without an external SD card. Why waste precious internal storage on videos, pictures and music?
3) consider the size of the screen and the size of the phone. I'm not one who uses a phone single-handed, but if you are, a large phone is difficult to handle. OTOH, if your vision isn't up to par, a small screen is painful (literally). Not only eyestrain, but you stare, your eyes dry out and start producing floods of tears.
You're really asking for the best flavor if ice cream - it's a very personal decision and all I can do is give you my feelings - you'll still have to weigh the factors that are important to you and make the final decision.
