Android and iOS are a step backwards. Palm OS and Symbian were way better but they lost out due to a false media campaign against them. People still fall for the same propaganda today.

>muh apps
people use only web browser on their PCs and no other programs, but on a phone they expect a separate app for every website they visit.
Want a good mobile OS that still exists (but soon won't), buy a blackberry.

Which Palm? The stagnant, single-user garbage Palm peddled well past obsolescences and market viability? Or the K-mart brand Android knock-off they took 5 years to build for an audience of no one?

Because both sucked entirely different set of balls.

how so? android maybe, i havent coded on it but its essentially java and linux so it hardly progress.

but ios? its sweet as mate, best embedded programming environment i've ever used. swift is very very nice indeed, and getting better.

Never forget that our phones were doing offline navigation over 10 years ago.

I must agree with OP about PalmOS. Everything open in a second, the default calendar/note apps are super good.

offline was the only way, mobile internet sucked.
Also, map accuracy and detail sucked big time then.

No, Palm OS was never based on Linux.

I bought a Nokia N8 in early 2011 and used it for three years. That phone had amazing hardware. I'd still be using it today if it wasn't for Symbian. I loved the form factor, the anodized monocoque aluminum chassis design, the AMOLED screen, and the battery life. It got great signal, phone calls sounded great, it always got instant GPS lock unless I was underground, it had a great camera, and the spring-loaded unlock switch was way better than the useless button used on other phones, which does exactly nothing to prevent accidental unlocks. Plus, it was completely indestructible. It survived years of mosh pits, mountain biking crashes, and general recklessness without any kind of protective case, and it was still in good shape when I got rid of it. It was beautiful, too.

I was sad to get replace it, but I had to get rid of Symbian, which is the worst operating system I've ever used by a wide margin. I would rather go back to using a dumb-phone than use Symbian. It offers the user no meaningful control of the operating system, and it's the buggiest OS I've ever used. Completely unusable.

Android has a lot of serious problems, including, in my opinion, some very fundamental design flaws, but it's nowhere near as bad as Symbian.

I still use mine for mysic. It's the perfect music player with it's awsome DAC.
