    Default FIGHT! OS7 vs Mango vs iOS 5 vs Gingerbread

    Great little comparison (albeit iPhone biased) showing what they think are the features available.

    iPhone iOS 5 vs Android Gingerbread, WP7 Mango & BlackBerry 7 | iJailbreak - Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Apple TV Jailbreak, Unlock, Cydia News



    Sound off!

    It's funny how they picked the categories that made iOS look sweet!

    This is probably a post where you can sound off on how you feel about our competitors and why we believe BlackBerry is the bomb.

    The funniest part to me is how they make Gingerbread look awful when in reality it really KILLS Apple in so many regards.

    OK...

    Subscriptions: Every heard of RSS? No? You probably love spending money on monthly subscriptions for magazines that are 70% advertisements.

    Advanced Reminder System: The constant blinking red LED isn't efficient. I need to have a pretty thing to look at. Monkey like sparkle.

    System-wide Twitter: Are you that self absorbed that you had to let everyone know what you're doing/how you're feeling and can't be bothered by a few clicks? Or are you a 12 y/o girl that MUST know what her fav celeb is doing atm. like o m g.

    Quick Camera Access: Quicklaunch. Boom. Done.

    Photo Editing: That's what a PC is for, Picasso.

    Reader View: Autowrap zoom + space bar works well.

    Online Gaming Community: Monkey like sparkle. It's a phone. Grow up and start doing something productive with your life aside from comparing Angry Birds scores.

    original post from pcmag Smartphone OS Preview: iOS 5 vs. Android 2.3 Gingerbread vs. Windows Phone 7 Mango vs. Blackberry 7 OS | PCMag.com
    i used to read them but they really fell sooooo low now what a pos.

    "If you're using your mobile phone as your camera—as more and more people are beginning to do, for better or worse—quick access counts. Both Windows 7 Mango and iOS 5 let users jump directly into camera mode from the lock screen without entering passcodes (if enabled). Blackberry allows users to map a side button to launch a camera, but unfortunately you'll still need to unlock your device."

    unlock ur phone that takes about half a sec, and u dont wanna end up with ur colleagues asses on ur phone...

    Photo editing tools? Really? I assume they aren't including any 3rd party apps then. Why does a photo editing tool have to be native...

    Also they are going to have to explain how convenience hardware keys are not EASY CAMERA ACCESS.....

    Thanks OP. Very nice article. Don't think its iPhone biased, its an understatement, because some important points are still missing:

    Integrated with the biggest music store
    Integrated with the best app store
    Micro SIM
    AirPlay
    Facetime
    iCloud support

    The fact that the author at PCMag is comparing stock os without accounting for any 3rd party apps is ridiculous, since Apple's biggest strength is the huge library of apps. You can't compare a platform without looking at it's full capabilities with apps. Anyone out there have a smartphone with no 3rd party apps? Nope. This article should be dismissed from the start.

    All os's have their strengths and weaknesses, I've owned 6 different Blackberry's and I finally tried the Verizon iPhone since I don't like AT&T's service, it's a nice device but I don't like the notification system, but it's a lot faster and more stable then BB os's, but one doesnt totally trump the other in every aspect.

    They forgot the category that says phone.

    That gives iPhone an X.

    That Jailbreak (the name LOL) is an obvious giveaway for Apple bias, half the red "x"s in the Android section should be green ticks which the article seems to be taking shots at the most.

    Phone-to-phone messaging: isn't that Gtalk?
    Newspaper/Magazine subscription: isn't that Genie Widget (RSS feed)?
    Advanced reminder system: Google calendar/Google tasks
    Quick camera access: many phones has a dedicated camera button, or simply put a shortcut on the main screen
    Tabbed browsing: browser has built in window tabbing (not tabs)
    Reader view: not sure what this is referring to, there's Acrobat reader and Kindle for Android or is it that pinch-zoom function, which Android browsers does a very good job of.
    Rich text email: gmail shows full fledged emails
    wifi sync: wtf was this "x"d
    online gaming community: not sure exactly what this is referring to but there are games on the Market that lets you play online, Pocket Legends is one of the biggest.

    This is really funny though. "system-wide twitter integration". I'm pretty sure those were apple's words in their wwdc. It's like they just picked a load of iPhone features. So its more like, which phone is more like an iPhone. Oh.. the phone wins!

    And android does have tabbed browsing doesn't it??
    Great graphics at http://www.720graphics.co.uk

    I missed the days when phone comparisons were about...phone features. Call quality, call time, charge time, network radio, battery life, or even screen size and resolution. This has compared absolutely nothing about the phone in and of itself.

    I hear you, I used to read reviews on flip phones back in the late 90's but now it's always about OS. When it comes to call quality, and general use as an actual phone the iPhones falls last- it's a PDA first, phone last. Of all the smartphones I've used, Motorola has the best sounding ones (due to having dual mic) and some BB's are great too (not all, but some also has dual mic).
