In a recent interview with A New Domain, Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder waxes lyrical about how intuitive and natural the Windows Phone interface. He uses a Nokia Lumia 800 running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. He also added Android is “no contest” in terms of UI. While he praised Windows Phone’s UI (he especially loves the tile interface), he isn’t a fan of the voice control functionality which lags behind iOS and Android. Woz admitted he still uses the iPhone as his default phone (two of them!), though. The fact that he looks at the best aspects of all mobile OSes out there earns him respect amongst the tech heads.

I do agree with Woz on the Windows Phone UI. Its simplicity, fluidity and intuitiveness makes it very appealing. I also share his opinion on Android’s UI, while it has improved tremendously in its current iteration in Android 4.0 ICS, still lags behind iOS’ fluidity and attention to detail. I use all three OSes on a daily basis, including BlackBerry 7 OS. Call me an OS slut. Oh well.
