WP7

I think we'll at least wait for Windows Phone 8 and Windows RT to launch before we start on that one.

I own both. Cant decide. Android has better phones, connectivity with non Apple devices and some nice freeware iOS has a more expansive library of Apps, reliable apps and it just feels abit more slick to use. Surprised by the poll, I dont find that much of a glaring 'winner' with either.

Android because of customization. Apple because of games, but since I have a Vita and 3ds, my Android phone serves me fine.

Own both, pretty much a toss up. Android is slicker and much better designed when Google puts their minds to it, but they leave too many rough edges and the second-rate app support is a drag (dat fragmentation). iOS is more consistent and has a much stronger app library, but the Apple "our way or the highway" design philosophy and some shockingly dated design (dat skeumorphism) can be pretty damn off-putting. Would say:

Phones: Android = WP7 (which is all kinds of rad, although the app support is even worse than Android) > iOS

Tablets: iOS > Android

Android, absolutely no contest. Jellybean = god-tier. I've flashed stock JB on my Galaxy Nexus and Google Now is simply a revolution. Google is the one innovating in the cellphone market these days, not Apple.

Android is an open OS supported by a wide range of platforms, and JB is the most responsive, user-friendly OS for mobile devices yet. Apple has nothing left... though they had little to begin with.

Indeed, I love the WP7 interface, but the overall system is severely lacking, Win 8 looks to change that. Android by a landslide.... better in pretty much any conceivable way.

I don't have an appetite for a great smorgasbord of programs.

Web browser; video player; music player; comic/pdf reader; RSS client; torrent client;

And then there's the occasional game or two. But quality is the key. As far as I'm concerned, Android just needs a handful of truely solid programs in addition to solid hardware.

Maybe many others ITT feel the same as I do.

Then, I also like the customisation. Perhaps there's a bit of that too.

I love the Windows 7 interface the most, but the system overall feels lacking.

Anyways, I'll always choose the slick UI and overall smoothness of Apple over Android.

I pick Android any day. Sure apple has a bigger game selection, but Android has way more freedom with their phones. Besides, I don't need the "best" game library (apple), I just a "good enough" game library. Anybody buying a phone base solely on the gaming library is doing it wrong. You buy a phone for everything else it does. The games are just a bonus.

Exactly, especially with the compatibility between WP8 and WRT, I think there is some potential. Not to mention the fact almost all of the Android hardware makers will be manufactoring a Windows Phone or Windows RT device. So when the time comes I'll make a new thread to accommodate for Windows.

Except a superiour phone and OS. Maybe try iOS for a while first? I was sceptical at first as well.

Depends on the Android model.... but the fact that you can choose different phone models makes Android > iPhone

I phones programing is annoying.. transferring files is a pain and then the menu cannot be browsed as fast as some Android phones like mines. Having to use Itunes for transfers is stupid...... my phone works like a hard drive.. you plug it in put w/e you need in it and you're ready to go... for the iphone it ask you to sync or what not.... the hell...

Iphone.. a superior phone? lol even the Samsung Galaxy S2 out performed the iphone 4S.. I can bet you anything the upcoming iphone 5 won't even be as good as the Galaxy S3.

Overall they are both pretty bad at gaming, but Android is still preferred. I have an Optimus V and my dad has a 4S and I prefer the V. I'm also getting the Nexus 7 soon.

Apple's idea of customisation is changing your background.

Did you get your SIII replaced? I recall you talking about long loads / slow performance and static introduced when using headphones. All signs of a defective device.

Android is like the PC. Ugly, unorganize, cheap building quality, and design that imitatesthe real thing: Mac and iPhone. Let me know how the poor man's iPhone (samsung) is working out with its Siri-copycat.
