What Phone OS is yours?

Was just wondering what the spread of phone OS's were amongst us these days.

Still loving iOS, had my iPhone 5 for 18+ months now and have no desire to replace it at the minute unlike every other phone that I've hated after 6 months at most.

Android for me as well, aside from the wide choice of hardware I like the way you can customise it any way you want. I like a lot of what Windows Phone does and there's a reasonable variety of hardware now but I find it frustrating not being able to change the parts I don't like particularly the keyboard which even in the last update I find is a long way behind the likes of Swiftkey. Plus there's the lack of Google services which is also an issue when using WP but that's not something MS can resolve.

Android - Best one of the lot if you ignore some manufacturers efforts to screw it up. (I think windows is a close second from what I have seen of it).

I'm using WM 6.5, but then the HD2 still does all I ask of it in running offline navigation software, playing music, integrating with MS Office, grab-snap picture taking and occasional use as a phone.

I have all of Britain in 1:25000 / 1:50000 and marine charts on Memory Map, plus Europe, Australia/NZ and the US on TomTom 7 maintained with updates and mapshare. Those alone are an investment worth far more to me than a new phone I have no interest in.

Cloudy navigation isn't much use when beaching the kayak to go exploring, in a river tributary in darkest Kernow in a signal black spot. Neither is anything that won't take a bit of a beating much use in the same scenario.

There's a custom ROM google-less Android phone in the drawer as duty spare handset, but it rarely sees the light of day apart from recharging. I have kept a close eye on the market for three years now, but still nothing is remotely tempting.

You can load google maps into cache for offline use now, although for 'wilderness' use a large green swath of nothingness isn't really helpful.
