BlackBerry Named World’s Best Mobile OS by Technology Magazine

BlackBerry 10 was recently named the world’s best-designed mobile operating system “out of the box” by India-based technology magazine Digit.

BB10 outshone Android 4.4 on a Nexus 5, iOS 7 on an iPhone 5s, and Windows Phone 8 on a Nokia Lumia 1520. The BlackBerry OS won the overall test with a rating of 56.91 and was judged to be the best OS for email, contact management, calling, photography, search, and video.

“This was by far the most comprehensive test we have ever done, as the Digit Test Centre spent over 400 man-hours, meticulously checking over a thousand individual parameters for each OS, in order to arrive at a true and unbiased answer to the question, ‘What’s the World’s best mobile OS out of the box?’ By winning five of the ten aspects we tested for, BlackBerry OS 10.2 is a deserved winner of the title,” said Robert Sovereign-Smith, Executive Editor of Digit.

iOS came in a close 2nd, Android a distant 3rd. Windows came in 4th. Check out the full comparison here.
