Windows Phone has achieved a remarkable number of apps in it’s application store recently , it is marked as passing 50,000 apps by now .

Which could be your next Smart Phone ? Android/Apple/Windows ?

What phone could be in your hands in 2012 ?

There are lot of arguments going on, at homes about the next purchase of the Smart Phone ,as this is the season of the year .US and UK are two of the hottest markets for smartphone business ever. All vendors are fully armed with their marketing programs to attract more customers .

I personally use Android Phones for more than a year ,and I was a Nokia addict for quite some time ,but not now for sure.I have used Apple iPhones too.

Here are some personal insights about the smart phones ,that could contribute in your decision making this year . Firstly I am simply ignoring Nokia from the list as it doesn’t have any innovative phones at the moment and secondly Windows phone,that did not create any great impact in the market for decades and yet not ready to compete with . Windows Phone  is just surviving  ,that’s all.

Now the great war is going between iOS and Android ,from my perception

Apple iPhone4S Vs Android Phones (May be Samsung Nexus /Galaxy SII )

 

which could be your next smart phone ?

The hottest Apple phone in the market is iPhone4S and it is running iOS-5 ,valuable and useful iCloud service  and have one 8 Mega Pixel Camera. iPhone runs on a Dual Core processor,offering you a faster UI experience ever .

Most of the Android Phones like Samsung Galaxy SII,Google Galaxy Nexus too have dual core processor ,hi speed UI ,and 8 Meg Cameras , From the people I’ve interviewed ,the votes go  for iPhone4S’s camera and the camera UI. 

The Camera on the iPhone4S is one of the best cameras  available in mobile phones. If you want a stunning camera phone ,you would go for iPhone no doubt. iCloud is there to save all of your contents in the web cloud storage ,sharing the contents between PC environment and the phone is more easier now .

Apple  Vs Android – User Interface

Apple’s O/S is perfect and almost the same for years(say “outdated” ),fast and initiative ,but if you are not getting bored soon for doing repeated things ,it can be interesting . But Android phones used to have frequent updates and the UI is growing very faster with hotter features and numerous custom Firmware. Lot of  custom ROMs are available for Android than Apple(Rooting and hacking is much easier and permitted indirectly )

Android Phones are leading the way–Chitika.com reports

What shall be your next smart phone platform ?

Android is TeckDiary’s Editor’s choice .

 

No doubt ,Apple iOS has a major share among the mobile operating systems but apparently Android is booming very fast .If you plan your next device for this holidays and if you don’t have any idea about the Mobile Operating System you want to choose ,this post may help you a little.

Apple iOS comes second in my list albeit the higher number of devices being used currently, for it’s closed nature and Phone’s hardware specs . The monopoly leads to offer the services on their time of convince (they are not like that  really )(Since I am not living in USA ,I am not considering Apple iOS as the services supporting Apple are not available in my country in order to enjoy the iOS )And the screen size of iPhones are not enough for today’s multimedia needs .

Symbian is a dead platform and needless to talk about.
