    Looking for a windows phone for son

    Any recommendations? Want to avoid Android because he'll just play games all the time. Half-decent camera would be useful I think. Around £50?

    Are you sure you want a windows phone?

    Windows phones lifespan is pretty poor. My old htc blackstone got about 2 years of support.

    he only wants to spend 50 quid though, so 25 a year isn't bad

    He doesn't, read the post properly.

    no, which is the whole point I imagine

    "Want to avoid Android because he'll just play games all the time"

    Lumia 630 or 650....but for £50 i think you will struggle,as far as camera the 950 is excellent but way over priced.....have a look on argos store on ebay or cex avoid the 550 IMO

    Don't be so tight and let him play some games! :P

    I got the 550 for £25 a while ago at car phone warehouse. Camera is just okay. Nothing special. My 950 xl camera is great

    He will be bullied in school cos of his windows phone so better off letting him play games, and with a 50 quid budget the phone wont be capable of running or storing many games

    A £50 Windows phone will most probably be faster than a £50 Android.

    Yeah, that's the exact opposite of what he said.

    It doesn't matter what phone you buy, it will just end up as a mini games player.
