Poll: Which smartphone OS are you on?

The leadership in the smartphone market is still open for debate and the number haven’t really solidified. At least now, we’ve got over half a dozen contenders. So, which smartphone OS are you currently running on?

We’ve got a lot of promising ones right now and despite the marketing advantage of the Android OS and the iPhone OS, there are still more challengers out there.

Here’s our choice for this week’s poll:

  • Android OS
  • BlackBerry OS
  • iPhone OS
  • Symbian OS
  • WinMo
  • Palm OS

Please submit your votes on the poll section at the sidebar or leave a comment to qualify your choice.

Aside from the ones mentioned above, there’s the upcoming Bada OS of Samsung and even Symbian has many iterations that doesn’t even include the one used by Nokia on the N900 (Maemo) plus the Meego one with Intel. The choice for Palm OS above includes their new webOS.

    iPhone OS kasi may iPod Touch ako. Pero wala akong smartphone lol :)

    Wish Palm had released Pre Plus here officially (subsidized by carriers) but now, their hardware looks outdated (with all the new phones that are about to be released).

    iphone os din because of my ipod touch. wala akong smartphone eh. nakikigamit lang ako sa’yo.

    Primarily using iPhone but I also have an Android phone. Was forced to get a second mobile for a provincial trip. Globe doesn’t have coverage there, and I didn’t want to jailbreak so I ended up getting an el cheapo Samsung Spica to use with a Smart Buddy prepaid.

    i’m using android 1.5 and i think it’s awesome (imagine what 2.2 froyo can do). it doesn’t have all OS X’s eye candy but it has all those great applications and most are free!

    iphone OS is amazing but google’s android is close and it comes in a wide variety of hardwares. i really want to see how windows 7 will compete with both.

    i was a symbian user and i will never ever get back to that OS unless major improvements applied.

    Android 2.1 – I have a nexus one. also using iphone OS – i’ve an ipod touch.

    advantage of Android – it’s very customizable, since its open. true that the vanilla android OS doesn’t look so nice in the eye. but take a look at the other android 2.1 variants, HTC Sense? Moto blur? The other major feature i love about android is multitasking (there’s just so much you can do with your phone at the same time!). Soon will have more features with Froyo almost nearing its launch.

    Iphone OS – One thing i like is because of the many premium apps that are available for it. Most of their apps don’t feel cheap or free. Android still has some catching up but it wont be long. though. The look and feel is simple yet elegant. pro’ly because its apple.

  15. Fleeb says:

    I do not have an smartphone yet but I am looking forward to getting myself an Android phone and develop for it. I was ready to get an iPod Touch / iPhone but I cannot justify buying a Mac just to develop for the iPhone OS.

    (So no, I do not think I can answer the poll. Hehehe.)

    Symbian’s topping the poll? Ooh, Nokia Fanboys.

    Just kidding. But those turtles should really come out of their shells. It’s 2010. Symbian is like, uh, stuck in 2002.

    Currently using a S60 2nd Edition OS on a 6680
    Hope I can get an Android based phone later, iPhone is too restricted to my taste

  26. Nel says:

    Maemo kahit wala sa polls… love your own! =)

  27. rene says:

    if your needs are comfortably and properly meet with the smartphone your currently using, any OS I think will do the job. just like the brand of the smartphone, I think their is no perfect OS only marketing saber rattling of the competing commercial brands.

  28. desco says:

    angie, have you tried using other platforms? been using BB OS, honestly i’ve been impressed by the complex yet simplistic approach by symbian. I guess we have to clear out that these are smaartphones OS not just an ordinary nokia. Try to figure it out and not prejudge symbian because as a matter of fact, they are way beyond BB OS, iPhone OS. I dont think we can be compare OS with each other because they have different forte. apps for iphone and business worthiness for BB. I’m not familiar with other OS so no comment on them.

  29. snpklsdmbldr says:

    Android OS! Froyo is coming!

  30. Teknisyan says:

    if OS alone, then it’s android hands down, since OS will not run without a hardware, it’s the Iphone OS, which is seamlessly integrated with the Iphone/Itouch hardware.

    But we also have to think the niches these different Mobile OS is targetting… like BB OS, their more on the business side while the Iphone OS was mainly created for touch devices, wherein Andriod, WinMo and other’s are either for touch or those with hybrid with keypad/qwerty keyboard or keyboard+touch.

    Once you’ve tried android or iphone os, there’s no turning back. Unless nokia redeems itself via the new version of symbian…let’s keep our fingers crossed. Nokia should beef up it’s app symbian power.

    Palm OS on my Treo 680.

    Old school but still using it because we don’t have web OS phone here sa Pinas. I’ve used a Pre Plus and the web OS is really great. Full multitasking capability.

  38. Ebengt0t says:

    Symbian 0s because i can fully maximize its usage with the availability of s0ftwares and tricks 0n different f0rum sites but given a chance t0 have an0ther smartph0ne, it w0uld be andr0id.

    Now using Android 1.5 on Samsung Galaxy Spica. My Palm Treo 650 running Palm OS and I were inseparable for years, but the motherboard died. Took up the cheap Spica and never looked back. Integration with Google and its many services is astounding! (I just wonder if I’ve now also sold my soul to Google in the process.) Only problem is none of my PCs and laptops can connect with the phone by USB even after installing the required apps. So all data transfers is by WiFi and 3G (i.e., before I discovered my gigantic bill). To the other Spica owners running Android 2.1–how did you do it?

  47. Angie says:

    @desco I currently have an android phone, a very old iPhone 2G, and I previously owned a symbian 7 series 60 (7610).

    Well I’ve tried more smartphone OSs. As of now, I’m loving android. Not just because I own it. It’s free source, open to new possibilities.

    That’s why I think Symbian is lagging out of the race. Of course we have different tastes. For me, the symbian I am seeing today, is still the symbian I’ve owned since 2005. But, that’s just me!

  48. chris_a says:

    I’ll go with Android…..

    Linux+java in your hand…what can you ask for? imagine the infinite possibility in can do… ;)

  50. yuga says:

    @jade – didn’t include mobile OS that haven’t been widely used like Maemo, Meego and Bada.

  51. Fantazma says:

    webOS…..it is the most stable smatphone OS i’ve ever used….its like a big task manager..i’ve used a Samsung I8910 last year..and all i can say is..it sucks…it always lags and crashes…even though it has the same chipset as the palm pre…Symbian OS makes I8910 not worth buying…its very inconsistent..and also HP promised after they bought palm that they will continue to support the webOS because it has huge potential…maemo also is good…i heard it can run Mac OS X 10.3 and Windows 98…hahahaha

  52. snpklsdmbldr says:

    just saw the new features in Android 2.2 aka Froyo, and it made me love Android so much more! BTW Android 3 will be named as Gingerbread and will be released this December. Google is on a roll!!!

    I am using Windows Mobile. I like it because I can edit my office reports anytime anywhere. Also, since most of our computers are running Windows OS, I find it very usefull because I can easily sync my data in my phone to my computer.

    Now that Windows Mobile is gone, I am considering Android.

    I’m still using my trusty i780. That means I’m on windows mobile. Haven’t tried android yet cause I want a touchscreen phone with a qwerty that is not slide out more in tune of a Dell smoke. Came from htc hermes, atom, xda 2i, hp 6325. I just realized I’m attached to winmo.
