Or put another way, what was your smartphone history before iPhone?
Rofl Samsung focus. Had that thing too. Was pretty neat and flashy for like 5 seconds until you realized the Marketplace was never going to be updated with apps that aren't garbageJan 2008 - Nokia N82 (Symbian)
Nov 2008 - iPhone 2G (iOS)
Jun 2010 - iPhone 4
Aug 2011 - Pixi Plus (webOS)
Aug 2011 - BlackBerry Bold 9000 (BBOS)
Oct 2011 - Nexus One (Android)
Nov 2011 - Samsung Focus (WP)
Had maybe 30+ phones with 20+ smartphones. About 13 were Android. About 4 were iPhones. My favorite UI of all-time is webOS when I had a Pixi Plus.
Rank it -
webOS (fav UI)
I have always found BlackBerry overrated. I also type faster using SwiftKey than physical QWERTY which is why I was only mildly interested in the KeyOne even though I find it has the best design of this year. Loved the lighter color and materials used on the rear. Hate all the all-glass rears from S8, G6, to X.
KeyOne and Pixel 2 XL looks the best for me released this year with the matte finish I prefer. Favorite design last year was Huawei P9 Plus in white. Haven't been impressed by iPhone design since 2013. Always wanted to try QNX on BlackBerry Playbook and Meego on Nokia N9. Love gesture swipes. Glad Apple finally added it by copying webOS.
