    It would be a no brainer for me. I would choose android. It's most like iOS and can imitate the look of it. Not the feel but the iOS look I love.

    I would probably go with Blackberry. If not BB then maybe any non-Samsung Android phone.

    The app gap has closed up considerably between Windows Phone and the rest, and with the ground they have made so far, I think they deserve their slice of the pie.

    I tried a Lumia 525 and was pleasantly surprised at how well the phone met my needs squarely, and that recently changed my view on the platform. I would consider a future Windows Phone driver, but not anytime soon as I love my iPhones too much currently.
    Not to mention android runtime now on BB10 allowing Blackberry users to download and use android apps. It's all pretty much fair game in the app department

    Windows Phone probably would be a better platform than Android come WP 8.1, and I would like to see a good third player take its place.
    WP, 8.1 looks pretty cool. There's just something about Android that isn't my cup'o tea.

    Maybe there's a couple of things that Android appeals to me, things like the file system manager, side-loading capabilities and some of the apps on that side, I like Windows Phone more for the interface, the way it allows you to navigate and the built-in sharing mechanics I see in the tile system.

    Some native live tile widgets and better multitasking, like not having apps reset themselves ALA iOS style, I wouldn't mind switching.

    None. When blackberry was the only one, I thought their interfaces and design were terrible and still do. Android wouldn't exist without apple as it is now and would be like blackberry. I hate anything windows, user experience is completely lost on them. Probably would still have a flip phone.

    It would probably be a Samsung Galaxy Note. I've tried to switch to the Note 3 three times and came back to my iPhone each time. If I didn't have an iPhone to come back to I guess I'd stick with the Note 3. But I wonder what Samsung (and other Android) phones would have ended up like without the influence of the iPhone in the first place.

    Blackberry. That's were I was in 2007 and probably would have stayed there if the iPhone ceased to exist.

    Honestly, I owned the HTC HD7 and other android phones around that time and I would probably be doing the same thing I am doing now except without the debate going on between my Android and Apple phones. I would probably be using my Samsung Galaxy S4 just like I am now.

    Apple hasn't really had that big of an effect on me as it has to other people on this forum. I never owned the first iPhone...in fact the first ever iDevice I ever owned was the iPod Classic.. the original version 1. Then I purchased the iTouch 4th Gen and now I have the iPhone 5...in between that time I've had the iPad 1 and then the iPad Air but besides that I was never really interested in iPhones. All they are is glorified iPod Touch's and with my iPod touch still working fine I think I am going to stick with it for years to come...unless I somehow decide to move my music from Spotify to iTunes...then I'll move back to my 64GB iPod Classic that still works like brand new.

    An Android device. Especially the S5. It just looks cool in Gold.

    What is it you miss about iOS or dislike about the note? I recently purchased one too, loved it for 2 or 3 days but keep coming back to my iphone 5 too

    I had two Note 3's myself. To me, there was just something that seemed unrefined about it...I can't quite pin it down. My iOS devices seem very much refined to me. ...and that's a great quality in my book.

    Hi, but do you find yourself missing any aspects of the note or android now you're back on iPhone? I found the pen handy but not to any deal breaking extent.

    For me, the seamless integration across my MacBook, iPad and iPhone outweigh the benefits of a more open (which although I found the performance to be fine, open is ultimately more vulnerable long term) platform.

    I've notice you speak about the polish of iOS apps a lot before. This is something I'd completely undervalued until trying android for myself. I'm not saying android apps are hacked together or are unstable, there's just a certain finesse missing which is more prominent on their iOS counter parts

    No, not at all and TBH that bothers me a little.

    I'm not sure why it is but IME apps tend to look and work better in iOS. ...the same apps. I've yet to see an android app look or function better than its iOS counterpart. Tapatalk is a great example that many of us can relate to.

    I agree with the people who say that if Apple hadn't entered the mobile phone market, it would be vastly different than it now is. I probably would be using a flip phone still -- one of those army-grade ones that can take water and mud and whatnot.

    If Apple were blasted out of existence today somehow, and all the other market players were still around, I would choose either an HTC One M8 -- it's a beautiful, beautiful design -- or a Galaxy S5 -- I still would like a water-proof phone.
