Phones with Black and White / Monochrome Sensor (b+w secondary sensor for b&w photography)

I'm looking to buy a phone that has a monochrome secondary sensor, for better black & white photos.

Could you guys share your experiences, using phones with Black+White sensor. (I mean of course, without the bayer filter)

I'd like to know what models are out there, and if they are recommended or not, and give your reason(s) why.

I'd say considerations are: image quality, price, interface (photography controls).

I am aware of the Moto G5S Plus, and the more expensive Huawei* models, but would like to know if I am missing any. Although the G5S Plus is a reasonable $250 right now, there may be some (better) models to consider that are from a couple years back that have come down in price.

* I almost bought a huawei honor 8, when I found out that you get no access to just the monochrome sensor on that one (always only used to enhance color photos), and today I read about the security risks, which are a concern to me.
