There are usually many factors involved in deciding the best of anything, not to talk of smartphone operating systems. Some will tout app availability as most paramount, some would say ease of use, while another set would swear by customizability as the bedrock of what makes an OS.
These good people have decided to take into cognizance all humanly conceivable factors and weighed them against one another vis-a-vis the top four prominent smartphone operating systems. The OSes that were pitted against one another were:
- Android 4.4.4 (tested on a Nexus 5)
- BlackBerry 10.2.1.2977 (tested on a BlackBerry Z30)
- iOS 7.1.2 (tested on an iPhone 5s)
- Windows Phone 8.1 (tested on a Nokia Lumia 1520)
Note that what they were after is the best designed OS of them all out of the box. It is a comprehensive analysis, one which you may or may not agree with, but it is worth checking out.
