Windows Phone and iOS pound Android in PCMag’s Readers’ Choice Awards

Wow. Just wow. PCMag’s Sascha Segan just tweeted some astounding results from their Readers’ Choice Awards for smartphone OSes:

As you can see, I was a bit skeptical about the Android bit because Verizon Wireless, especially, has sold a ton of Android phones, of all shapes and sizes. Turns out, Android owners don’t quite like their phones/OS. It’s not surprising, most Android phones start out cool (or “not iPhone”) but they deteriorate over time with battery issues, lags, etc.

Windows Phone and iOS on the other hand, have extremely high satisfaction rates, and it shows through these Readers’ Choice Awards. Another interesting thing, on AT&T, the Samsung Windows Phones rated higher than the iPhone. Whaaaa?

Regardless, as an unabashed fan of Windows Phone, I am delighted with this!
