I haven't seen one of these in a while and am curious given the seeming uptick in WP8 threads/use. Only one choice per voter - choose the OS you use most often.

Looking forward to seeing results! As always, feel free to discuss ;)

I use an iPhone right now and split time between an iPad Air and a Nexus 7 for my tablet use. I'm looking at getting either an Xperia Z1, Z1 compact, or Z2 while I wait for the iPhone 6 and LG G3.

Used to be overwhelmingly android but these days I would say my time is split about 50/50 between my android phone (Nexus 5) and my iPad Air. I love android on my phone and I'm very happy with iOS for my tablet (although neither is perfect!). I voted Android though just because I only made the change to using iOS very recently.

I would also say that I think I would hate to have things the other way around. I need more customizations on my phone (so that I can access things very quickly while on the move) and I need the best app ecosystem possible on a tablet (so I can have all my professional apps to get work done)

I think I would be willing to give windows 8/RT a try if I could be sure that microsoft's ecosystem would play well with my Mac and Google ecosystems. So far I don't have so much confidence that that is the case. I do like some of the things Microsoft is doing in the tablet space though. And if they do come out with a mini surface with superb handwriting capabilities well...

Still dual wielding Android and iOS at the moment.

Primary (personal) line is my Xperia SP running Android. Mid range Android handsets aren't at all as bad as they used to be now days. I did replace a Moto G for my Xperia as I wanted a cheep device to use 4g as my plan supports it.

Now the MotoG is due with 4g however, I may pick one up again! :D

My iPhone spends much of its time idle but I do give it a play every now and then.

iOS. I have two iPads and a 5S.

I have a Nexus 4 but since I upgraded it to kitkat last week, it's developed some weird problems like shutting down at weird times and fast battery drains. Not too happy with it now.

Also have a Nexus 7 but I haven't touched it since getting the Retina mini back in December. Also own an Air.

I prefer the iOS versions of apps.

A Windows laptop is probably the mobile device I spend most time using.
But in terms of phone and tablet, I'm using Android on my phone, and have an iPad. The iPad is what i use least.

Just note3.

Have a few tablets (ipads and android) but seldom use them now as note3 is good enough most of the time.

You've moved to iOS :eek:

Tell me you're jailbroken at least?
Of course! :p


My current setup:


I made myself an iWidget that links to Fantastical's URL schemes to add a new event and reminder. So it's just one tap instead of two.

Double tapping on the Messages icon opens up the Auki compose window. while double tapping my Camera+ icon gives me the Lightbox, and just tapping it opens it up to the camera (as it does by default). I'm still trying to work more URL schemes in, but the newest version of Writer Pro, for example, doesn't work with 7.0 anymore.

I also stuck an "App Drawer" folder in my dock that just opens to a bunch of nested folders and all my other stuff on my phone.


Left swipe - Fantastical
Right swipe - Dark Sky

And I can do those from anywhere in iOS.

Note 2 as daily driver

iPhone 4S as backup for when I want to use the Sleep Cycle app, play certain games, use any proper music recording/tuning apps, or have a second mp3 player along for traveling. Or for when I just feel like an iOS fix....which hasn't happened for quite some time now though.
