Best Smartphone Operating Systems


The Top Ten

1 Google Android

Cheep and best

Cheep and best os in world

Best OS because you can costumize almost everything without root.

Android One is the as good as it gets

2 Android Pie

More improved user interface, more tools added,.

BEST os. Better than Google Android.

Does some things I do not ask for

3 Apple iPhone OS

Simple, fast & reliable

Nothing can beat apple.

VERY VERY GOOD DESIGN.. but the android has more options

I like android but they really can't compete with the fluidness and overall simplicity of ios. No one beats apple at software.

4 Microsoft Windows Phone

Windows phone OS are great they are not ram hungry. And very powerful apps and games can be used in windows phone with a low specification phones. And it's better than android and iOS In all ways. It's faster than all os. The only lacking is a small apps store but the store is now getting day by day.

Smart resizable tiles allow you to mod your entire phone to suit your individual use and content type needs. IOS widgets attempt the same but are limited to one screen with limited customization ability. IOS and Android currently lead the App Store battle but Windows 10 mobile is a far superior OS. IF/When Microsoft figures out how to make app porting easy (or unnecessary) they could easily leapfrog the others.

Windows phone os awesome, nothing to like windows, my vote goes to windows phone, popular future os

Unbelievably fast and stable. But Microsoft has experimented with its own remedy, the general lack of applications available to the platform prevents its expansion - Jukass

5 Nokia Maemo

Billy said it was great!

A full open source os. They even rub network penetration testing... It's the ultimate hacker os with proper linux os access to terminal. You can do anything to it... more customizable than android or meego... It is the besr

6 Linux MeeGo
7 RIM BlackBerry OS

I'm sorry... Best architecture, high security

I've used most operating systems and BlackBerry 10 is my favorite.

Menu items missing or slow to respond, Device temperature warmer than usual and Applications not opening.! - mwasoge

It is the best os I've ever use

I'm sure this OS will compete with Android and iOS (which I both hate) and take a big market share like both Android and iOS. Here is a video that shows what its all about:
