Some of the latest smartphones on the market have absolutely great features. This makes your device the only one you might even need as today’s smartphones offer the best features and functionality. If you are looking for a new phone and are not sure which operating system to go with, the best thing to do is make a comparison of the features you can expect.
Smartphone Operating Systems
The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were released back in September and include the new Apple mobile operating system, iOS 7. iOS 7 is a vast departure from all prior versions of Apple’s operating system due to the flat design that is considered to offer more functionality than ever in the iPhone. Certain features have been updated and improved, such as Siri, Apple’s voice assistant technology. You can also update your iPhone 4, 4S and 5 with iOS 7 as it has been made available for these devices. One thing to be aware of, however, is that it might decrease battery life on the iPhone 4, in particular.

Android’s 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system is available on a wide variety of smartphones. You can get it on the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and Sony Xperia Z, all very popular Android powered devices. Jelly Bean is the best operating system by Google’s Android to date as it offers a smooth, fluid user experience with little to no lag and plenty of great features that were not available in the previous version of Ice Cream Sandwich. Of course, if you have your eye on an Android phone, it is best to make a comparison of a few models so that you can more easily determine which one is best suited for you. For instance, while the ultra slim plastic feel of a Samsung smartphone might appeal to some, you might prefer the more premium feel of the aluminum HTC One or the water resistance of the Sony Xperia Z.

Windows Phone 8 is the smartphone operating system that is gaining the most ground at the current time. It was released last year and has graced phones such as the Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 1020, HTC 8X and the Samsung Ativ S. The operating system comes from Microsoft and offers the user better personalization as you can set up your live tiles in any way you wish and choose colors for them. Windows Phone 8 includes HERE Maps, HERE Drive and other great free navigation services as well as 7GB of free cloud storage on SkyDrive for your photos and documents. There is even a Kids Corner feature built into the phones so that you can protect your child and your phone simultaneously when youngsters use your phone to play games.
