    No flaming, trolling, bashing peoples opinions, fanboyism and all the crap.

    I personally feel the Android OS is better, The market place is huge, altough it doesnt have as many apps as iOS it has more useful apps.However the iPOD does have some good exclusive apps and the Gui s faster, but the Android GUI looks better.Blackberry has easy to access features and is a great and quick way to communicte.

    What bout ya?

    Got an android, relatively happy with it. Have some touchscreen problems, but that's a handset rather than an OS issue. Installed swype, which makes text input much faster and helps a lot.

    Haven't tried Symbian yet (pretty sure that's the name) but between my Android phone and my iPod Touch, I'm gonna have to go with Android. My only real complaint is that it's not as "standardized" as iPhones/iPods and it's a bit lacking in apps, but it's much better overall. It's more customizable and it kinda feels like it's jailbroken out of the box (meaning I can install pretty much anything onto it). Piracy is terribly easy (provided you can find the .apk files), so that's not a bad thing. Just recently upgraded to the latest Android firmware and it's very nice looking, although my main complaint is the lack of Silence and Vibrate buttons on the pull down thing (although now it has the Sound On/Off thing on the Unlock screen).

    I'd say Android for anything other than multimedia.
    Apple wins on that one.

    Well i don't like apple for over-pricing everything but so far they have the best phone.
    Come on Microsoft boost up your game and create a better Windows Phone OS.
    Microsoft are gonna give Apple a fight with Windows 7 for Tablets/Slates.

    android, I've tried all the OS's that are on your list, and I found android the best looking and performing (2.2.1 and 2.3 that is). That's why I bought a HTC desire Z in the first place.
    Ios is in second, just feels refined and optimized for the system.
    in third is a Java - based OS, which I had on my old sony ericsson phones. It's really simple, good looking, and it does the job rather well. Never had any problems with it.

    Android
    iOS
    WP7
    Palm OS

    Blackberry OS, Symbian and WM6.5 aren't even worth mentioning, they're so far behind the curve they're practically Stone Age.

    What are you saying? Last week you told me that you like the iOS better then Android.

    EDIT: Back on topic.. I like Android the best because its highly customizible plus it has cool apps that iPhone will never get such as Chrometophone. Did I say flash player? Android hands down.

    If it's possible, the Windows Mobile option should be changed to Windows Phone 7. People may confuse those two, it's clearly Windows Phone 7 that you mean.

    Android all the way. I pretty much love my HTC Wildfire on 2.2 but my only complaint is that it's a bit slow and unresponsive at times but I think thats because of the low processing speed of it(528 mhz i think). But my next Android is definately going to have 1 ghz or more.

    Android, I've used an Android phone enough, and I do own an iPod Touch 4G. I think the Android is better because even though Apple's market has SOOOO many apps, the apps for Android just seem to spark my interest more, I like the home screen and navigation much more on the Android, I can't think of other reasons, plus, Android is open source.
