Question

OK, we haven't done this before, but it seems like we should be asking this.

 

The Android option also covers variants made off it like OxygenOS (OnePlus) LineageOS and so forth which are just forks.

 

Since it isn't uncommon for people to have more than one phone, we are going to be asking what is your main phone's OS.  So not the one from your boss, or the burner/throwaway cell number you bought to sell weed ;) 

 

Have fun, and lets see which way Neowin swings ;)

I use iOS 10 both for my main phone and tablet, but I also have some Android devices kicking about for testing / backup. They're on KitKat and Marshmallow IIRC.

 

I've yet to upgrade to iOS 11 because I dislike a lot of the changes, but I'm sure I'll do it one day or wait out for 12.

That's legal now, One less phone!

 

I moved from WP10 to Android (Pixel) last year. I like WP10 more, but... well, it is WP10 and couldn't use any of the apps I need (medical and other things).

Android. It's been Android since owning a smartphone, and I can't see it changing any time soon.

Android.  I keep an eye on iOS and few family members always have to have the latest.   But iOS/Apple has nothing to steer me away from Android.  And WP...well, I dont have to rehash that mess.

I'm still using my iPhone 7 Plus from late November 2016 with iOS 11.2.5. I keep up with the latest news for Android to see if it's worth switching back. For now, I'm staying with Apple for various reasons: iMessage/FaceTime, Apple Pay, VoLTE/WiFi calling working without having to get your phone through a carrier, easy WiFi password sharing between iOS devices, and more.

My primary/personal is an iPhone 7 Plus 128GB running the laters iOS 11.2 build.  My Secondary/Work is an iPhone 6S 32GB running iOS 11.2.

 

Had a Galaxy Note 2 at one point, just don't like the Android ecosystem, too fragmented.

android :x Not because i like it but because there are multiple choices, different prices, different hardware designs to choose from.

i have to admit one thing : samsung makes android  a little bit " likable"  more than sony, motorola, htc

Just got updated to Android 8.0 on my OnePlus 5T about a week and a half back and can't imagine that changing again this year ( I suppose I could land up with 8.1 - fingers crossed).
