Which Operating System: Android, iOS or Windows 10 Mobile?
Alternatives to the best Mobile Operating System BlackBerry 10
The topic is not new, but still topical: two of the formerly four most popular operating systems are still on the market.
Think twice before choosing a mobile smartphone (or tablet) so that you can enjoy it for a long time.
Apart from data protection, Android OS and Apple iOS/iPadOS have very different operating concepts.
Many people will only be happy with one of both ecosystems (taste and philosophy play a role).
The short version: For years BlackBerry had kept quiet about end using their operating system in smartphones.
We customers felt
totally screwed conned and needed a new reliable smartphone quickly!
So I wrote down my thoughts about it. This also gave like-minded people something to work with, because not everyone is a geek or nerd and knows the background and then simply builds an Android smartphone with Linux and becomes happy with such a mobile construction site (even for professionals this is a fiddle).
My personal conclusion: Apple iOS is the most secure operating system of all and there is the widest range of good tested software.

2016-02-05: BlackBerry has dismissed 200 employees, mainly responsible for BlackBerry 10!
This means for their own operating system BlackBerry 10 practically the final end. I do not expect further developments. If security gaps are discovered in the future, BlackBerry will have a hard time fixing them. Software flaws have not been fixed either.
I do not want to do without the comfort of a secure smartphone and am now looking for a secure alternative. Other BlackBerry customers will certainly feel the same way and that's why I am writing down my thoughts on this here ...

Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile

It should be able to do what BlackBerry's former managing director Thorsten Heins dreamed of back then with his BlackBerry 10 OS: Mobile Computing. The smartphone as a universal computer. Read more ...
For me personally only Apple iOS comes into question as an alternative
So I had tested Apple's iPhone 6s Plus and was able to buy its successor iPhone 7 Plus at a low price by means of a contract extension (VVL). Afterwards I bought the iPhone 8 in the Apple Store. Thanks to VVL, I got the anniversary iPhone X from Deutsche Telekom at a low price. I ordered the successor models iPhone Xs, iPhone 11 Pro Max and afterwards also the iPhone 11 Pro online from Apple and picked it up in the Apple Store Frankfurt.
I remain critical and do not see Apple as a religion.
