No hate! Want 'best' P & S dig. cam for less than $400 ...

I've used the Canon S100 for 4-5 yrs. and been overall happy with it.  Lens will suddenly not retract (common defect) and it's time for an upgrade.

I'm a Senior, love photography, but don't want real complicated, sophisticated cam.  Rarely take selfies, don't need: flip LED screen, Xtreme zoom, wi-fi for instant posting or D/L.  Love macro.  Lately taking more pics of family and friends, indoor and out.  I do use SOME simpler post-production editing (brighten indoor pics, re-touch, crop, remove shadows & wrinkles, lol, etc.).  I just purchased the original Sony RX100 but am returning it; can't get really good pics, too complicated for my needs.  Next on my researched list is the Canon SX720 - but some reviews are terrible, others are xln't.  I don't mind if it's a new camera but originally made 2-3 years ago and has high reviews. It's driving me crazy.  Sons say to buy a $500-700 cell phone and be done with it.  My Galaxy S5 is just fine, use it only 30 min. a week and I like better-quality pics anyway.

SO:  IS there a 'terrific' cell phone with great photos for under $600 (higher budget since it's "two products in one" or IS there a P & S cam under $400 that is an over-all xln't value and great pics????  Can you help?
