I like iOS simply because I like the integration it offers I also prefer closed ecosystems that work 100% compared to open eco systems that don't always work well.

One of Android's main issue is fragmentation even among new devices.

I don't like WebOS because it just never seemed all that intuitive to me.

I would say iOS for the fact that it's so well polished, is the only user friendly thing i actualy like, has the best browser and the best app store full of games.

But I also like Android for being able to customise it.

....I'm going to have to go with iOS. Even though I like and use both lol

BlackBerry OS is dead.
WebOS is not yet powerful enough.
WP7 is just... really ugly to me.

I would say iOS at the moment with Android following a very close second.

I'm with Windows Phone 7.

people who say WP7 is ugly are people who haven't used it yet. The UI looks extremely slick when in motion.

At least the UI is clear. Ever since the introduction of WP7, i've found both Android UI and iOS UI to be too cluttered for my tastes.

The iPhone blew the competition away in 2007. Fast forward 4 years, WP7 is the new OS to beat! Android in my opinion is just trying so hard to be like an iPhone + Windows Mobile 6.5.

It's succeeding, and at the moment, if that's what users want...well so be it.

Windows Phone 7 doesn't have UI. It consists of white text labels on a black background. No, thanks! Android is the best, especially Sony Ericsson's UX.

A User Interface doesn't have to be a bunch of fisher price icons over a background.

My vote goes to Android. Best browser even over Safari (Safari's CSS sucks and I hate how the browser sometimes has to reopen tabs when openning new ones), not compleltely locked down like iOS, customization with almost no limits, GREAT apps, and more.

Android > iOS > the rest goes here.

Eh after having used Android on several phones over the past year it has improved but it still has a way to go to catch up with iOS. It's a great os and I'm not complaining about it but it does have some serious lockup issues and overheats pretty badly in them sometimes. Plus apps for iOS are just completely beautiful, lets face it apple nailed the ui perfectly. I used to hate iOS when I first got android, but I guess I was just to anti-iphone back then

When it comes to looks Apple definitely isn't going to fail. The next iPhone needs a bigger screen. After having this HTC Android, it will be hard for me to get an iPhone with the screen size it has now. Also, HTC Sense interface is amazing.

Personally screen size isn't important to me, I hate how big some of the phones are in all honestly some are just too much especially when they're bigger than my whole hand. The one thing that keeps me coming back to android is the physical slide out keyboards on the Motorola's and HTC's. I've got an lg optimus v at the moment and I get fairly sick of using the virtual keyboards at times. I just can't match the speed and accuracy of a physical keyboard I could back on my first android. Agree with HTC Sense being amazing, HTC has definitely done a great thing for android with it

WP7 is my favorite, but sadly it isn't available in Denmark yet. Or well it is, but it's without marketplace, xbox live etc. and also without a danish dictionairy.
So I've recently bought an iPhone instead and am really liking iOS. So WP7 is closely followed by iOS in my opinion, hell maybe I'll even start liking iOS more when I get more used to it.
