Android is the obvious choice. Way ahead of other in terms of market share. So this category is not so useful as there isn't really competition here.

Sailfish OS on Jolla is a very interesting new mobile os. On my Jolla is really shines.
It's open and not ceated as a platform for ads.

I use Android but i don't particularly like it, and i don't like its close integration with Google and i don't like Gmail which i have to have now.

I have high hopes for Ubuntu Touch and FirefoxOS. But as with FirefoxOS phones are available and Ubuntu not (AFAIK), my vote goes to them.

You might have better luck inquiring on XDA developers.

Android, unfortunately: looking more and more like a proprietary solution.
Inexplicably, Ubuntu dragging its feet on the tablet front.
