I'm sure this poll has been done before but I'm curious where we stand in February of 2015. Vote for your favorite mobile Operating System.

My favorite is Android. Due to everyone around me using an iPhone though, I stick with iOS. Just easier to communicate with iMessage. Being able to send videos in full resolution is awesome. Also, Android phones always seem to have a hard time texting multiple pictures, where as an iPhone has never failed me.

OS only: Windows Phone. It's simple, fast, stable, and works exactly like one would expect. But it lacks apps.

OS + ecosystem: iOS. Stable, fast, solid developer tools resulting in higher quality, better thought out applications.

Windows Phone for sure if only looking at the OS.

Tossup between Android and iOS if looking at the ecosystem: Both are stable, fast and have solid developer tools (so does Windows). But Android has a much better, well thought out user interface (since lollipop) and is not locked/dumbed down while iOS has much better integration with cloud devices and a much better watch (if it's as good as demoed).

I don't have a favorite, but I do like Windows on the phone.

iOS due to the ecosystem and reliability/stability. Also Apple's customer service is unmatched in the industry.

Windows Phone is intriguing and I like what they're doing but I think Microsoft got in the game too late to make significant gains. They allowed the other OSs to become too entrenched.

Operating system?
I code my phone at the machine-code level.

I like Apple OS but to be fair I have nothing to compare it to, it's the only system I have used
