    I'm going to buy a new phone (an android one), but I don't want to spend too much money.
    Can someone suggest me the best phone for 150 euros?
    Thanks in advance.

    I assume that is 150 Euros standalone with no contract or anything.

    Any features you want/need? Various cameras, a good camera, specs for games, light, microSD slot, radio, GPS, dual sim, lots of nice custom ROMs....?
    What physical size phone do you get along with? If you want something you can lose in your pocket then OK but if you prefer large screens because of iffy eyes or just preference then also OK.
    Also are you good with a second hand phone? Phone tech has not really advanced in the last couple of years so some of the older stuff from people now leaving contracts is still more than workable, and likely still better than a 150 Euro new phone even if you do have to replace the battery.

    Xiaomi redmi 4 pro or redmi note 3 pro(official cyanogenmod avaliable) are the best cost effective choices atm

    I think redmi note 3 pro is still the way to go, it has proven itself worthy and lasts 14 hours with screen on on a single charge. About 7 hours playtime in pokemon go too xP

    I'd prefer a new phone and I would say that I will use it mainly to play

    yeah , because no one brought up AOSP source for the device ...I dont like Sense or Sammy's UI so I always run AOSP based roms on my devices.
