Here we present an overview of the three of the most efficient OSs in the mobile world, namely Window 10 Mobile, iOS 9 and Android Marshmallow (M), to help you decide which system is better and fits your mobile needs.


Windows 10 Mobile: It has the live tile and a notification centre that arranges messages based on category and it enables users to access shortcuts easily.

iOS 9: It’s basically the same as the previous version, but with a more distinguished font.

Android M: Marshmallow improves lollipop by including an app drawer which makes searching for an app in a list more intuitive and easy.


Windows 10 Mobile: Apart from the features we got to see in Windows 10 for PC, the mobile version brings Universal apps and a upgraded Cortana app. Also, all data from your mobile device that runs Windows 10 Mobile can be synced to your PC or you can stream photos and documents back and forth between the PC and the mobile.

Windows 10 Mobile is also compatible with Android and iOS apps and it makes it much easier for users to get the needed iOS and Android apps to run on their Windows 10 Mobile –based device.

iOS 9: It comes with many built-in apps like mail, notes, messages, maps and new ones like Apple Pay and Apple Music. It’s also smaller in size now to make room on the device for users to download and install more apps and has improved battery life due to the Low Power Mode.

Siri became a lot ‘smarter’ in this iOS and can now give an efficient response quickly. Another good improvement is that multitasking is now better thanks to the Slide Over, Picture in Picture and the Split View features. Finally, it has a new iPad keyboard app – QuickType that helps format shortcuts or cut and paste text.

Android M: This one brings a new feature named Now on Tap based on Google Search. You can long press the Home Button or voice command it to initiate it.


Windows 10 Mobile: The Universal apps feature enables mobile owners to install non Windows related apps to make their phones more secure. But the built in security apps also do a great job and efficiently prevent electronic attacks.

iOS 9: It essentially offers the same as the OS above plus a strengthened passcode to keep others from accessing your Apple ID or personal info from your phone.

Android M: It brings a change in the sense of permitting you to agree to an app accessing your camera or other features once or forever. There is also the fingerprint option for unlocking your phone which also mobile owners to use Android Pay or other apps.


Windows 10 is more versatile by allowing third party apps to work on it and improve security features. iOS 9 has more apps to start with and more room for new ones, but Siri was said to not be as useful as initially thought. Android M is better in the security department but less in the overall phone performance department.
