Hi, I want to know what the best phone is for under £150. It's a phone for a family member who mostly likes camera&sound and a screen above 4.8" ..
Only one I can really thing of is the new 2014 MOTO G. Anything else?

The Lumia 1020 can be had for around that price recently. You won't get a better camera on a phone.

I have the 2014 Moto G and thoroughly recommend it.

everyone alway says "moto G* so moto g it must be! :-)

You'd think more phones would be competing against the Moto G, but not many, Moto G it is.

I think you've pretty much got your answer.

Lumia 1020 - Probably the best camera on a phone. But downside is the Windows OS which is still immature when compared to Android. The app selection is improving but it's just not there yet and the market saturation is barely existing. However it's a unique phone and I've tried one and was very impressed by the camera as I've never really been impressed by one on any other phone.

MotoG - Best Android phone at it's price point really, but downside is less decent camera. However it's got probably the best balance of features.

I would guess the Moto G is more simplistic when talking about the UI against the Lumia 1020??i mean I was going to buy one of those phones powered by mediatek but I didn't.

I wouldn't say so. The UI is just different and that's in a good way, there's nothing actually wrong with the phones themselves and they work perfectly quickly. It's fairly mature, as an OS goes, all the basic functions are in place and work fine. My comment about immaturity and the main issue is that compared to iOS and Android Devices, Windows phones have less than 3% of the market share. So as a result developers target the 2 former platforms as their priorities, Windows powered phones then tend to either get common apps later or in some cases not at all.

I'd consider if the application choice is important then Android will be the best bet but do check out the WP store to see if the apps that you'd need to have access to are available.

Just remember that generally the latest/greatest updates and features will likely appear on your iOS or Android running friends phones first.

I used to have a Palm Pre3 and I loved the phone, everything worked great, the only issue I had was that everyone else had a nice range of apps and games to play on their phone, by comparison the best I got was solitaire without paying for apps and even paid for stuff was relatively poor in terms of choice. Personally I wouldn't go back to an immature OS again in the future.
