Default android borescope

Can anyone recommend a good android borescope? There a number of them on Amazon for $50 or less and I only want to buy one and be done with it if possible. I need one with a pretty small camera end because I will use it to look down into carburetor booster bores etc when centering drill bits and stuff like that, and rifle bores too.

Last year I bought and have been using a Depstech borescope with my Samsung S10. For the money it does exactly what I need, and operation is easy. uses WiFi to connect to the phone. Just used it to suss out a leaking freeze plug on my '57 Chieftain.

I have the Desptech also. I’m not sure the one I have would be small enough for you, though. I don’t have it handy but I’d guess the camera to be at least 1/4” diameter. Other than that it works fine. Maybe they have different models.

I also have a Despetch. It will fit into spark plug holes easily but I don't think it is small enough for what you need.

Thank you. I need to get one that would be able to fit in a .223 rifle bore. They make them and for not much $$.
