I take photo's with my phone and have always used a S7. Lately I've had issues with my phone over heating and even though there has been a battery change it's still playing up.
Now, along with every company changing its charge ports, which is enjoying after you've spent hundreds of pounds on equipment that uses one type in particular...I hoped that there would be a Samsung phone that has a camera with slightly better quality and has normalised charging...anyone?
@Members_YAuhZQ1 Very good advice from @Glenntech , just to add I think the S21 or S22 series would suit you well, should notice a difference in quality and processing speed. You can see comparisons here https://www.androidpolice.com/samsung-galaxy-s22-vs-galaxy-s21/ but S22 series is obviously a bit more advanced. You will get more of an idea by trying models out though.
I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
