iOS 5 vs. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich vs. Windows Phone 7.5 Mango – Comparison Of Features

The next iPhone is now official and it will be rocking some new software but Apple’s competitors have been doing some great things over the last few years. In this comparison post, ‘stuff’ is the three major mobile operating systems – iOS 5, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango – and it is their feature-list which is compared by redmondpie.


Each of the three major platforms offer its own advantages and drawbacks. Apple’s iOS is very simple to use, has a robust app ecosystem that is growing larger by the day but it’s essentially Apple’s way or the highway. You could argue that Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango is the most visually-appealing of all the platforms but its device and app ecosystem leave something to be desired. Google’s Android is extremely customizable and powerful but fragmentation is still an issue.
