    Apple's consistent unscrupulous practices (that is another hub by it self) put me off using their OS, and I will try not to let that influence my answer.

    Pros
    iPhone iOS; Fantastic for the "computer illiterate". Many more apps to choose from for now. Good solid OS which rarely crashes.

    Android:Easy to use. Does not restrict uses when coping files from one device to another. Android Apps are generally free of charges. Android is a type of "for the people by the people" software. Also has rare crashes.

    Windows: Best "universal" OS as it can be used many different types of devices such as phones, PC's tablets etc. Limited apps for now and apps cost more than Android.

    Blackberry: Sorry there are no pros

    Cons
    Apple iOS: Most apps are too expensive. OS does not communicate easily with PCs. Strong problems when transferring files such as music and video regarding licences to own those files. Strong requirement to have an iTunes account. (who are these guys, they sound like some kind of communist government - Sorry).

    Android: Not as many apps as Apple. More user training required if you are new to Android.

    Windows: Still has bugs for the mobile sector. Limited expensive apps. Licence to own the OS is not free.

    Blackberry: OS has a history of being cumbersome and difficult to use in recent months. System will crash frequently. Does not have as many apps as their competition.

    Apple’s control and limits on the iPhone is too frustrating.

    Android can be made to work, but Google is an evil marketing company and I don’t like constant advertising everywhere.

    Windows Phone is too limited and simple

    That leaves BlackBerry, a good mix of features, efficiency, security, privacy and allows me to just get things done in a flexible way.


    The new BlackBerry 10 OS and phones are hugely different from the old OS7 phones mostly discussed here.

    I've put together a comparison of the current Smart Phone systems
