Every OS has its own feature and every phone has its own charm. So it really depends on one's personal interest which one to go for.
Some are criticizing IOS, some are WP7 and some are Android. If those OS are that bad, then they would not have captured the smartphone market globally.

I dont understand why people are so negetive on any phone OS that is not their Fav....i see a lot of improvement on any OS that comes ...iOS and Android look a lot similar whereas if you want something different you can go for something like a Window Mobile OS...There needs to be choice for customers on not just brands but also operating systems...i miss those days when every phone manufacturer had their own os and we had a choice now the choice only seems to be the phone looks inside its pretty much the same...I still think phone is required but i dont understand why people are so closed about system ....I like my freedom and being in the open market economy i want choice for not only the phone manufacturer but also my choice of OS ,,,,Anyways it is a phone not something that anyone needs show their superiority about .... you like dual cores have fun with them...i have seen reviews where one small feature missing and people would say negetive things about the same but if you dont want it forget it leave it there are others who dont care much about the same and like the phone let them decide and not talk crap about things you dont know and deciding futures of company as if you know what is going to happen...5 years back no one knew someone like google or apple would be what they are now so dont predict the future for any company ...if you were so insightful of the market you would be trolling on the pages but working for the company and making changes to it....i like the fact that nokia has WP os and symbian i also respect iOS for the revolution in the phone market and Android for their open systems and bb OS for their interface and security ....Respect the peoples hard work on each of these OS they worked hard if you dont like it leave it

Samsung Focus Flash look almost identical to the top Nokia-WP7, and the user-experience and user-interface is completly identical! Nokia make good phone-shells and have good camera-lenses, but Samsung have far better hardware inside their phones! I can not see any reason why wp7 could ever be popular, and i know many of the positive comments about wp7 are written by Nokia-employees!

There's a real danger for both Samsung and HTC of designing phones that look too 'samey' - I would have hoped a distinct difference in the look of a Windows phone to an Android phone - a chance for handset design to shine a bit...

And also to differentiate in the market to users...

I've had a GS1 and now a GS2 - and although I'm totally happy with the specs / performance...

I want my next phone to look different, to FEEL a bit different...

I can only hope they make an Xperia Play 2 next year... then I'm jumping to SonyE!

Awesome! Use WP7 for free or pay Microsoft $10 for every Android handset sold, which do you think is more attractive?
