Voted Android.

My old Blackberry synced OK with Gnu/Linux via cable.

My Iphone 5S made me jump through many many hoops to unsuccessfully sync by cable so I used my gmail for file transfer on it.

Now with my Samsung Galaxy 7 edge. All is OK again when it comes to file transferring via cable, removable micro sd card, or airdroid.

Being open source is not a prerequisite for this category.

the choices are outdated.

this is a jungle - or should i say a hornets' nest? - that will grow uncontrollably if you want a serious poll.

which os? which hardware? what about e.g. something like this?

^ yes, i was actually looking for that yesterday and couldn't remember the name!
they support some pretty new google developer devices; right now it's a bit above my budget but maybe a little later the prices will have dropped sufficiently :-)

While I'm using Android simply because I wasn't able to successfully install alternatives on my device, I'm looking forward to see alternatives taking the mobile market away from Google.

I'm mostly interested in Plasma Mobile, because it aims to run both Linux and Android apps at the same time, which sounds really useful if it ever happens.
And in Replicant, because it seems to be the most freedom focused of the options.

Android. Least it doesn't constantly piss me off like Amazon Fire OS. Would like to try CyanogenMod, preferably on this Fire tablet.
