Android 4.1 Jelly Bean vs iOS 6 vs Windows Phone 8 get compared again

0. phoneArena 06 Jul 2012, 02:44 posted on

It is a pretty neat way to see who supports (or doesn't) what, and by the looks of it, Android seems to be the most feature-laden and flexible from all the latest mobile OS iterations. Some areas where it needs apps to do the task compared to the others still exist, of course, yet with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean the little green robot seems to have grown up to a teen Terminator...

Looks like every OS has its own advantages and Disadvantages...
but I would still stick to Android and would definitely get a WP 8 Device when they are released!! with all the new additions, WP 8 will be quite good!

Android is definitely going to steal most of the features from iOS 6.0 and WP8 in the next release. Hence Android Rocks LOL.......

yes, they are going to steal the ideas but android has always(well mostly) about quantity and not quality.

''Honestly

google''

well microsoft wont sue em because they don't want to ban their phones microsoft earns on android.
And microsoft have xbox live gaming so lets see how google steals that.

M ready to get some heat.

"well microsoft wont sue em because they don't want to ban their phones microsoft earns on android."

That's the exact reason Microsoft WOULD sue them: instead of requesting a ban, Microsoft would simply charge them even more per phone for every patent and make more money.

I'd hate to trade in my Evo 4G LTE so soon for a WP8 handset, but we'll see... I feel like Windows is going to hit a real home run with their newest mobile OS, and I've been ingrained in the Xbox and Windows ecosystem far longer than I have been in Google's.

For the wireless backup. There would likely be a backup system. Becuase windows 8 has it. So it would likely come to wp8

obviously.. you can only compare what can be compared.. Those things are out of the league for one particular OS, hence omitted..

Unfortunately this kind of table is useless for comparison of complex and dynamic nobile OS systems. Maybe relevant in the era of Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 5-6 years ago. Wii seem to be the weakest but it racked up the most sales when released. PS3 was the one with the most impressive hardware and fan base but the sales were disappointing.

Widgets do exist in WP8.

Because "Live Tiles = icon + widget + notification"

I really think that wp8 is now more of a mix between android and iOS becuase the features, specs, apps amount coming soon, but one advantage is enterprise and games for windows phone

What the hell? Some of the features it says Android hasn't got ARE available.
To encrypt device just go on Settings > Security > Encryption.
Offline pages are available on the stock browser as well...

If you get a recent Motorola Android phone then yes it has all those security features that business users rely on.

Not sure about the offline web pages as I have never sought out to use it.
