Has there ever been a better choice of smartphones? Probably not, but these numerous possibilities make the smartphone buying process increasingly difficult.

Choosing between the four major platforms - Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows Phone - requires plenty of thought and as service provider contracts grow in length, it's important to make the right decision from the off.

So step forward, speak up, and let us know; which smartphone platform do you prefer, and why? Is there a platform-specific feature you can't live without? Are you happy with your current smartphone, or has something made you consider switching to one of the alternatives? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Android for me. It was good on my old X10 and even better on my new Galaxy note. Personally for me its the customisation that wins it for me - Don't like the launcher - install another - don't like the sms app - install another. I don't believe any other platform allows that level of customisation (correct me if i'm wrong). I also like the fact that anyone can create an app store and you aren't forced to go via google for your apps. I'd also like to say custom roms but i'm never brave enough to risk my phones!
I'm a fan of my Samsung Galaxy S2 (with Android 4.0), however I still dont think that the interface and overall consistency is as polished as iOS (5).
I have a Galaxy Note and prefer Android 4.0 ICS, which has just been released in the UK and downloaded this morning. However, I'm not impressed with Samsung's TouchWiz skin over the much better stock ICS look! Hurry up Cyanogenmod!
HTC Sensation for me - Android 4.0. Although I'm a huge Windows fan, I haven't had a chance to work/use/play with a Windows Phone.
Anything but Apple!
