So I am one of these dudes that are too stupid to find the right one. So I started out IOS but became kinda boreing after a while. So then is moved over to somthing really simple with windows phone 7,5 mango, and then moved over to android 4.0 ice cream sandwich which is really like now, its actually user friendly unlike what I heard form other people(who I think are apple fanboys)
So I am interested in what you dudes/dudetes are useing. And I am sorry for my Grammar and English.
not sure how you got 'bored' with an OS as long as it does what you want it to what you you want it to do.
i've tried iOS and Andriod and think both are excellent. both offer different pro's and con's. neither is perfect.
personnaly i go with iOS. mainly becouse i just like the look and feel of iphones more than any Android device (im shallow like that) and the apps store is fantastic and has great content that keeps me entertained.
When it comes to Android, it's about what manufacturer interface you're using. Samsung TouchWiz has been my favourite ever since 2009, but people seem eager to take a dump on it.
*Pulls down pants and makes ready*
I loathe TouchWiz...hate it with a passion. Give me vanilla Android any day. So much cleaner and unobtrusive.
Samsung Galaxy S2 with the F1 Galaxy Nexus Rom (which is to say Vanilla ICS 4.0.4).
Never been a fan of bloatware, so I nuked my phone and put a custom Rom on it. Plus I was sick of waiting for them to get off their butts and finally release ICS, which happened about a month after I put my current Rom on. Now I am just waiting for someone to get a good, stable Jelly Bean Rom out for my phone. I've got a Kindle Fire with Jelly Bean on it and holy balls, it's outstanding.
By the way, IOS is a fine OS if you aren't a tweaker (and there's nothing wrong with just being ok with what they give you). I went to Android because I like playing with stuff and making my phone my own.
To be honest ive tried all major OS's (can you even say that..... OS's.... thats kinda weird) and to my surprise for performance and speed and what i use a smartphone for WP7 is hands down the fastest phone ive ever used and ive never had a call drop and the 4G in my area (Cleveland) is fucking fast so yeah im pleased.
First is the user interface is the big thing I got bored of it, it feels old because of minor changes since I got one in 08.
The second is the games where there are some fun stuff but there are too much shit in there, so one of the reasons why I don't play games on my phones or ipad.
The thrid is the browser that is ok but really meh compared to the windows phone one. I have not tested the android one because so far I did not need to because of widgets or what they call em.
So for now I have not really gotten the taste you have for the iphone or any other phone, really. But I will say that the next iphone I will probably buy because I am also shallow like that.
@benjaebe said:This is a statement I can agree on.
WP7 is criminally underrated. It doesn't have some of the more popular apps or gets things a bit slowly, but god damn is that interface nice to use. Also has the best keyboard out of any phone OS if you ask me.
Yeah same. I like Android on my Nexus 7, for sure, but I would like my phone to be clean and fast.
I don't really like iOS 'cause it feels so old and its ugly ass UI.
I don't own a cell phone so none. I happen to do tech support, on my lunch as I type this actually, for HTC. So I'm familiar the most with androids with the HTC sense add on. We do have some W7 phones, but we get very few calls on them. I bought an ipad awhile back and absolutely hated the apple OS and do not know how anyone can use that POS. I took it back for a full refund after a week with it.
If I ever had to get a cell phone it would be android. Thinking of the Samsung Galaxy III. The carrier in my area has a pretty bad selection of phones, and that seems to be the best one on it. I'm only going to get one though if I can find my own place and move out on my own. Might as well get a cell phone as to a home phone.
Windows for Mobile Phones Version 6.1. Yeah. Some of us can't be bothered to upgrade phones for very long periods of time.
Same same. My Xperia X1 has been treating me well, up until about some month ago or so when I can't even answer calls anymore. Time for an upgrade soon.
Can't find anything that appeals to me though. I guess the train for ZTE Blade has gone and left by now?
Xperia Play maybe. It'd have to have some good games though, for it to be worth it.
I use iOS. I went with an iphone because literally every single android device I've tried so far has had some pretty shitty touch screens that made even swiping to change a page or something a chore.
That said, the Nexus 7 tablet has me intrigued, and I've yet to use anything made by ASUS that wasn't great, so maybe it doesn't have those touch screen issues.
Galaxy SIII running Android 4.0.4. Would like to get Jelly Bean running on it but I haven't had time to root it and am surprisingly satisfied with TouchWiz. I had a mixed experience when I rooted my Droid X a while back and was running a custom ROM. Some things worked really well but there were a few quirks that annoyed me so I ultimately went back to stock. The nice thing about Android is that the option to root it and go with a custom ROM is there, even if I don't end up doing so. If Jelly Bean gets an announced release date for the Verizon SIII (which will surely be months later than every other variant) and that date is before the new year, I'll probably stick to stock. If not, I'll probably get end up rooting and ROM'ing in the fall.
I do like the clean look of WP7 but developer support just isn't there on that platform - and that's coming from an Android user. The hardware for Windows Phones has also been a little underwhelming so that's contributed to keeping me from really considering it an option.
I'm using an Expira Play right now, an Android phone. At first I really liked it, but now I'm getting bored. It's really cool for game emulation that kept me busy through boring lectures and stuff, but I'm starting to miss the... legitimacy of iOS. Android's been finicky and crashy lately, my phone probably just needs to be restored to factory settings (possibly my project for today, now that I'm thinking about it).
I'm torn. Hopefully by the time my contracts up, something really cool and new will have been released. Maybe the iPhone 5 will be amazing, maybe someone will be crazy and release a phone with a 1080p screen. Who knows. If the market then is the same as it is now though, I'm going to iPhone.
I like iOS, it's a solid-ass platform for doing just about anything I need my phone to do. Works for me. I don't need to get all hacky on my phone, I got computers for that. It also does all the cool iCloud syncing stuff, and I don't feel like configuring all that with 3rd party stuff for other phones. I like having my whole music library on my phone, but over the web. That shit is pretty cool.
Mainly I just think the iPhone looks cool as shit, and the camera is pretty nice too. I'm also not a fan of the trend of massive smartphones like Androids seem to be heading in, and I hope Apple keeps their current form factor. It's a good size.
WP7. Love it.
I like the functionality of android, but would rather play with it in a tablet form factor and I dislike Apple as a company, so the quality of IOS doesn't have much sway in my decision.
WP7 is just a really streamlined and well designed OS for a phone. It is clearly limited, compared to app libraries of the other two, but it's just so good at being a phone.
Also, Pacman CE DX on my phone.
I broke my iPhone 3GS trying to repair the speaker. Didnt want to spend iPhone money on a phone again that I only really use for web, email and twitter. Got a HTC Trophy 7, love getting achievements on games like Plants vs Zombies and Civ. Revolution. But the marketplace is really lacking and I really hate the official Twitter App for it and the web browser is lacking. Kinda wish I spent a little bit more and got a Android Nexus S but oh well.
