    iOS these days.

    I was an Android user for roughly 7 years, but since switching over to iPhone I don't think I'll go back. While I don't mind weighing up components when it comes to a PC, I prefer the simplicity of knowing what I'm getting with an iPhone, and I won't have to go through the hassle of removing bloatware etc like I did with my old Samsung Android devices.

    Android - but I've only had Oneplus One and it comes clean of huge amounts of said bloatware Aulayna mentions, based on what I've been told.

    I really, really, really dislike Apple and the way they operate in a technical sense and a business sense. I'm not a Google fanboy by any stretch but they are certainly the lesser evil of the options so far. I'd try a Windows Phone, but not pay for one to do so.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!

    Android. I understand it best and honestly, I won't get an iDevice merely because of how trout their customer service is and the marketing of extra add-ons to do normal smurfing stuff. Like the headphones thing. Like you can't repair it unless you send it to a very specific apple repair blah blah. Yeah not a fan. Wont support that predatory business stuff.

    Android.

    My phone is an Android, so I'm use to it. My only experience with iOS is Shopkeep at work and I've never used Windows Mobile (I forgot it was a thing).

    iOS turns me off mainly because Apple has to have their own everything. I can't use any set of headphones or charger for it. It has to be theirs.

    iOS. Simple and clean.

    And Darth Ganon - I have no problem using my own headphones or 3rd party chargers with my iPhone, so I don't know what you're talking about

    Really? But don't Apple products have those little flat nubs for the chargers? You're not getting a standard one into that. And they eliminated the headphone jack all together.

    I mean, yeah, but tons of third party manufacturers make Lightning chargers, and I'm pretty sure there's Lightning-to-jack adapters made bu third parties as well. So it's not like Apple has total monopoly on add-ons.

    Maybe that's more common where you are due to different patent laws but I rarely see anything that'll work here in the US

    Even if that is the case, all iPhones up until 7 still use a regular ass jack port for headphones.
