If you just wana try it out to see if you like it, try a Moto E4 specifically.
I was doing some research and that one is the cheapest good option at 130USD unlocked, with the Moto G5 plus being the next best step up if your blind from what I've seen... It has a faster processor and more RAM, which are definitely worth it if your doing more intensive stuff.
The E4 is nearly stock android with extra features you can turn off, it's also got enough RAM to run Talkback and a few apps at once, though probably not like more than 4 at a time, a fast enough processor to open things relatively quickly, and expandable storage VIA micro SD card which is standard, but in this case you can also store Apps on their.
It comes with Android 7.1 and also has a fast, accurate front mounted fingerprint reader and (removable) battery that should last the entire work or school day, with a decent version of quick charge, as well as a screen that isn't massive, so it can actually fit in your pocket...
oh, and it comes with a headphone jack, because apparently that needs to be said these days, thanks Apple. >:(
It's got GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 with the compression and power codecs, but no enhanced audio stuff, along with the right sensors to play more advanced games, if you care, and it can play all the major audio and video formats just fine.
That said it will still probably be taller and a bit thicker than the regular IPhone, but it is pretty much the same weight. It's also hard plastic with a soft touch back, not metal.
It also doesn't have AC wireless, or NFC, which means no paying for things with your phone at the store, and monthly security updates are slower than with Google and Samsung.
If you decide to keep it though, Motorola does have fast major OS updates which is a big plus.
I just checked, it's authorized for use with, and compatible with 2G, 3G, and 4GLTE Sprint bands
You can even get it from Amazon for a hundred bucks if you don't mind ads on the lock screen and some extra non removable Amazon apps, but only if your a Prime member.
