The fact that android has many users doesn't make it the best. If so then China India and Pakistan would be the best countries in the world. iOS is the best for stability and performance. Yes it is overpriced but then that's an attribute of quality

Android = Gold.
IOS = Silver.
Others [WP] = Bronze.
So the OS in front is Android.
IOS is the second best. The majority speaks.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but no need to get emotional about it. It's just phones. I myself could be 100% wrong. Only time will tell.

But we also need choice, variety, options. With android, and now windows phone, you can get that. I may not be a fan of NOKIA but if i want a windows phone, i can buy htc or samsung. Another example, i love SAMSUNG, but i don't like the laggyness and geekiness of android. I can buy a windows phone from SAMSUNG.

That is where apple lacking. Options and variety. You are stuck with one product, one OS. They offer great experience but at the same time restrain you from making your phone work how you want them. Apple creates very good looking products, but sell them at high price.

Again, it's all about preference. No phone or OS is perfect. No phone or OS can fit everybody.
