Your Love: Android, iPhone, Windows Phone or BlackBerry User?
Those that have read some of my articles here on Phonesreview probably know I am one of the Android faithful, while my colleagues Mark and Lawrence are Apple fanboys, although Mark does own an HTC Desire HD as well as the iPhone 4, so there is a little bit of conversion there.
I came fairly late to the smartphone game and chose the Android platform as my first smartphone due to it being a new platform that showed promise, and the first handset I got was the T-Mobile G1, mainly because it had a slide out QWERTY keyboard that I found of great use when typing out messages.
Since then I moved onto the Samsung Galaxy S and have found the Android device to suit my needs perfectly although Android does seem to take its time rolling out OS updates and I am still waiting for Android 2.3 Gingerbread to be released to Samsung Kies, which I find a huge annoyance and would prefer OTA updates, but that aside I’m satisfied at what Android has to offer.
Many prefer the iPhone, but personally I have avoided jumping on that bandwagon as I feel sooner or later Apple will hit a high and not be able to come up with anything new to extend their OS, although the same could be said for any mobile OS. But another thing that stops me from having an iPhone is price; I feel that when Apple pushes out a new iOS device it is beyond many peoples price range whereas more often than not, Android devices can be cheaper on the pocket.
As for BlackBerry, I have always felt the Research In Motion handsets where more for the business orientated person rather than being an everyday handset, but BlackBerry has been a major contender for quite some time and many people opt to go with their OS for security.
The newest addition to the mobile space is of course Windows Phone, an OS that is still basically in its infancy and personally I believe has a long way to go before being up there with the likes of Android and iOS. Maybe Windows Phone 7 will attract more people when it hits Nokia smartphones, but for me personally the Windows Phone OS does attract my personal interest at this time.
So now that I have said all that maybe you are wondering what I am getting at, well we’d like to know what is your love, Android, iPhone, Windows Phone or BlackBerry. We’d like you to post to our comments area whether you love Android, iPhone, Windows Phone or BlackBerry and the reasons why you chose your favourite smartphone platform, and why you feel it is better than the rest…many thanks in advance.
