I've used it, it's still ugly.

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.


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.

Exactly. Why do people think that a user interface needs to have tons of wavy cool designs? I think the best UI is a UI with minimal design.

BTW, I really can't hold this in, but I absolutely hate Sony Ericsson's UI. Sure, it's really flashy and shiny but it isn't functional at all.

It all depends how you want to use your phone and what you care about in a phone. Personally I like flexibility and the ability to pair with almost everything and customisation. I know windows phone 7 and iOS are closed environments and are nice and smooth, but it doesn't bother me if there's a bit of juttering. Personally i like the full control as well as the plug and play and customization of the android. I can do so much more with it then the restrictive iphone (especially when i don't need to spend thousands to get all the accessories to make it work). Windows Phone 7 is great for people who aren't technically capable and want a smartphone without complications. Its lightweight and easy to navigate around. For me I will always choose android because of:
Flash Support, File Access, Customisation, non-restrictive bluetooth, better networking support, more options on every page, more settings, the custom roms are SICK. and all the awesome things about android seem to keep getting included in the latest iOS patches and updates lol

edit: HTC Sense poos on everything when it comes to beautiful full features interface. Blackberry is dead (dying for business hardcores). WebOS is a bit meh, not enough power in it for me, to bland and has an outdated look

I really like ios and i was gonna buy an iphone too but when i saw this new rom from china developers i changed my mind!


It's like ios and android had a baby MIUI. :)
Really awesome os and it does have all the good fuctions of android plus a professional design like ios with uniqe themes etc.
I could write a lot more about this but just watch the video and some other videos on youtube to see what i'm talking about.

MIUI is so much win, I absolutely love it I just wish they had it out for my phone. I'm still stuck with just a plain 'ol CM7 mod. Only reason lower mid-range android phones suck is they never get any of the awesome roms :cry:

I prefer tiles instead of icons like all the other phones so WP7<3

It needs to be redefined as we see tethering in recent iOS updates

iOS for the sake of technology. :) For the simplicity, for the apps, etc.

WP7 is good except for the homescreen and restricted app design scheme.

Android is good but because it's sworn to being 100% open, integration with hardware optimization is poort. If Ice Cream Sandwich can fix this it'll rise up.

WebOS was wrong place at wrong time.

iOS is toooooooo restrictive and repetitive

Blackberry, just isn't a smartphone

Is it just me, or has iOS stagnated? If there is one thing I can't stand, it's a grid of icons. Ugh. And Android is more focused on being an iOS wannabe. It never really brought anything new to the table.

I prefer the sexiness of Windows Phone. Beautiful UI that gives the user the information they need without the need for an "app for that". Live tiles FTW! The Facebook integration (And Twitter now too, with Mango) is pretty hard to beat.

iOS for the UI and polished apps.
Android for the open OS and tethering! :D
