Best smartphone OS for a novice?

What do you guys think is the best smartphone OS for a novice? Android seems like it'd be too complicated, so either iOS or Windows Phone?

How novice? Used any phones at all?

Anyhoo - yes, I would agree. Android's easy on the surface, but I know that a lot of 'noobs' find the finer points confusing - settings, settings for settings, sync this, background data that...
iOS is a tad more straightforward, apps a tad more consistent. But even iOS can be confusing. Some apps have their own settings menu, others have it under the iOS settings, and some have both. Then there's notifications, and iCloud etc etc.... Been a while that I really used WP - most easiest back then because there was little one could do with it...

A cheap one so they aren't wasting so much?

A cheap one so they aren't wasting so much?

True... which means, ahem... any WP 7.5/7.8 from the 'reduced' bin. Or a Lumia 620 - which isn't exactly cheap if you ask me.... So, back to Android.
