Here is a comparison video that show the main differences between Android, iOS and Windows:

When it comes down to it: It is your choice which you enjoy using more, which does what you need, and what apps you want access to. In our opinion, if you are wanting something that works out of the box for social media, photos, music, etc. then iPhone is a great option. If you want more control over your device, plan to modify it, use it as a remote, etc. then Android would be the route to go. If you are a PC only person and want to synch all your Microsoft accounts on all your devices and tend to enjoy a more simplistic approach, then windows phones are the device for you. Do some research before you buy your next phone, go into your local service provider’s store and try them all out, you’ll quickly decide which best feels right to you.
