    Ignore functionality, app stores, available devices, etc.

    In your opinion, which mobile OS has the best aesthetics?

    Out of the box,
    WP8.1 is the best looking.
    iOS8 comes in second.
    Blackberry 10.3 in third.

    Now the reason I stated "Out of the box" is because you can easily customize Android Lollipop/KitKat/Jellybean to look better than all three.

    I'd argue that because of a lack of continuity across some skins and with some launchers that Android is less beautiful.

    Lollipop out of the box. It just looks really pretty and it's generally lessened my need to customise, apart from the keyboard. SwiftKey still beats Google keyboard imo.

    Too subjective, heck I could argue for any of them dependant on my mood even..

    I like the look of Blackberry 10.3's UI, but they all just about look the same in my opinion.

    That's something manufacturers have already greatly improved on. I can't speak about 3rd party launchers though, as I rarely use them.

    But, of course, if it were objective there would be no point in asking opinions.

    Android 5.0 for now. Until the non Google apps get updated, it's going to be a mess of UI's.

    Out of the box I would say HTC sense is the most gorgeous even though its not an OS. Its skinned so completely that it could be.

    I know, but I meant it's even more subjective than normal :) like I say my own personal preference could change daily based entirely on my mood that day so it makes it too hard to call.

    Heck at one point I thought webOS and meego were beautiful too :)

    No longer a mobile OS AFAIK

    (not stated in OP, but intention was to restrict to current OSs, and their most recent versions)

    Windows Phone 8.1 by far.

    Waiting to see Android L up close. Vids look nice.

    Stock Lollipop. iOS 8 is nice but lollipop is way better.

    I actually really like the look of windows. I just worry about certain google apps and compatibility. For anyone with a windows device, is hangouts available and are push notifications reliable?

    Lollipop is just drop-dead gorgeous. I don't know how it looks in motion, but the screens are beautiful.
