If I had to base my future desires in photography off the blurry, poorly exposed distant shots of a camera phone with no option of creative features and controls.... I'd find a different hobby.

You may have heard of something called "mobile photography"

Is that what the OP is wanting to get into?
They should have said so then.

it's apparently quite popular these days.

...to those that don't want to carry actual cameras.

And teens.

Philip had a good point. The OP gave so little info, no option can be given. How do you or anyone know what to suggest. The phone camera might be a good choice for a beginner. You don't know and neither do I.

The OP didn't say what their budget was or wha they liked to shoot. They gave us no clues whatsoever. There can be no good answer.
