VodaFone Smart have a range of phones, their best one looks to be free with a SIM (I assume there's some kind of contract) or $250 for one of them to buy outright.

 

Otherwise look at the Moto G / E ranges on Amazon.com. The G5 is too old now, but the G7 and probably even the G6 are still good value, and G7 probably has another year of updates coming. Moto G7 Play would be great value, it's their lower end model. You need to check carefully that it has band 28, but I suspect it does. This color of the G7 play has band 28, and the Power version (big battery) does too. I can also say the G5 standard and the G8 plus definitely have band 28, as my wife has both.

xiaomi a3 brand new from aliexpress for like $277 nzd delivered (I got one a few months ago).  very very good phone, and its brand new.   I wouldnt bother buying a second hand phone due to battery being the first/only real thing that requires you upgrading (ie selling off your old phone) these days.
