Right now I can say Android platform is much better then any other available in market as we can play with it in different ways and there is no restrictions and it worked perfectly in a mid range phones also.
I have not covered Blackberry and Symbian, as we all know right now they are not in much demand.
New platforms are also coming like Sailfish, Tizen and Firefox. Have to wait to see how good they are.
