    Through research I have determined that Windows Phone is 7.5 whereas iOS is only 5.0 and Android is only 4.0. (Actually most Android is only 2.3)

    Therefore Windows Phone is 2.5 better than iOS and at least 3.5 better than Android!

    Also Live Tiles.

    I.n.t.e.g.r.a.t.i.o.n.

    The way Apple introduced Apps to Windows Mobile smartphones and ruined them, Windows Phone has introduced integration to iOS and Android and time will tell how it doesn't only ruin them, but also force them to copy it (that's what they do the best anyway).

    iOS is what it is, has been, and will be. The same.

    Android is good and I like it but it has become a clusterf*ck and it will only get worse.

    WP seems to have a good balance from both worlds. I'll stay with it.

    Ahhhh, but if it were a game of golf, Android would be the Tiger Woods of the world (before his little "incident" of course lol).

    WP would be well behind :P

    The market is new. Look what happened to the car market once it grew. I stand by my comment android is fragmented, buggy, crashing, garbage. iOS works good but its dated. Android now has quad core phones than feel or act no different than lesser phones. Some apps work and some don't it all depends on what version of android you have.

    Just cuz something sells doesn't mean it's good. Just look at the music industry. People don't buy what's good, they buy what's "cool".

    This is always the example I use. For some reason terrible music sells, and so does Android.

    You know as much as I prefer WP UI, iOS is beautiful too. Also remember that features like swiping the homescreen to unlock and showing notifications on the homescreen were done by Android first. WP would not be possible without iOS/Android paving the way.

    Is not. It has the potential to be but it's not.

    Microsoft silence is driving me crazy, I enjoy using my phone day by day but when my contract runs out I just don't know what to do.

    Actually, webOS originally brought gestures and world class notifications long before Android was even someone's bad idea.

    I think iOS and android are both awesome platforms. At the end of the day it is a matter of preference as all 3 platforms are very capable. Its all about which one works best for you. Currently WP7.5 is my favorite, however that may change as each platform continues to mature. It is better for us end users to have such competition in the market as each company tries to earn the one up.

    I like webOS better than Android OS, but the first Android OS devices were released in 2008 while the first webOS devices were released in 2009.


    Other notable devices:
    Windows laptops: Asus VivoBook X202E (Windows 8), HP Pavilion g4-1215dx (Windows 7)
    Chromebooks: Samsung Chromebook XE303

    Yeah, but you forgot about Blackberry 7 OS and how RIM is going to leap in front of Microsoft when they release Blackberry 10 OS! Shame on you for forgetting Blackberry!!!

    For some unknown reason I feel like finding a DeLorean, driving it at 88 MPH, punching in 1994 on its special circuits, and playing with an Atari Jaguar. Do the math on that one.

    :D

    Stop bypassing the word filter. The F word is filtered out for a reason.

    Personally Android has better app integration in that it has the APIs for apps to more easily tie into more places than WP7 does.

    I'm may move back to Android when my contract is running out, especially if Google drive is decently integrated into their other services.

    I'm really leaning towards the iPhone cause no other phone manufacturer can produce a camera as good as Apple's smartphone.

    I have both ICS and webos on my HP Touchpad and agree with @CHIP72 Webos is fantastic! They really got it right! I hope to see some open sourced webos handsets on the market in the future. My only beef with webos is that it never really felt optimized for the hardware it was released on. Even on my touchpad ICS is night and day faster and more responsive but lacks the polish that Palm and HP introduced.

    Is it still better than the Titan II's camera?

    True, but they didn't intro the types of gestures and notifications that Android fans try to take credit for.
