advice needed to buy a suitable android phone

I currently have a Nokia 735 Windows phone. I know this is a very basic phone but it's all I require and I am happy with it. However, I have been told that from 31 December I will not be able to use WhatsApp on this phone and that I will need to get a phone with an android operating system. Can you recommend a cheap one (around £50 maybe) that will allow me to text, call, check emails, use Whatsapp and take reasonable photos?

A decent Android phone will cost a lot more than £50 I'm afraid. One of the best 'budget' phones at the moment is the Motorola Moto G7 Plus at around £200

That's for a new phone - you will of course find good, cheaper secondhand phones in your local high street's used phone shops, but not for £50.

Judging by what you say you need to do with a phone, this motorola phone could do the job for you. It has an octacore processor, so reasonably fast and a 13MP rear camera.
