    Something like this one
    needs a device with OTG support (On the Go cable) that also allows flash drives or a mouse to connect and function via a standard sze USB port.
    Many mid or low tier phones don't have OTG support, but older flagship models do, Samsung S4, Note 2 upwards, LG G3, HTC 8.

    This linked device also mentions the phone camera needs to be UVC compatible (Universal Video) but I think most modern devices are.

    If you find a phone you like in your price range, Google for the specifications, GSM Arena or Android Central sites are good, and look at Connectivity - USB : if it mentions OTG, and usually MHL support to connect a tv, that should work. OR it will say USB Host, which means the same.

    However I would check with the endoscope maker or on Amazon, if they have one. I think some need a separate power supply cable, but I'm not sure.
