Most of us largely spend our time looking and customizing our smartphone Home Screens, making it more adorable for example like navigating the piles of icons, the widgets or arranging our apps and moreover some home screens of devices like the Android or the iOS or any Windows flavoured, have tiles like icons where you can adjust their sizes too.

Windows 8 Vs iOS 6 Vs Android Jelly Bean

Looking at the Apple’s iOS home screens they have given us an option for customizing everything and this made smartphone makers realize simple apps are now not a big market anymore and for the likes of Samsung and the HTC, customising their Androids will certainly make a difference and even Google has been improving its home screens and not far behind is the Microsoft with its new home screen stock, live tiles.

So, let’s see how these three giants, the Apple’s iOS 6, the Google’s Android 4.0, 4.1 and the Microsoft’s WP8 the smartphone market industries differ from each other. Yet to be released in public, a change between now and the software available will differentiate. But still let’s compare these latest versions for now, so are you ready then? Before we do, we need to tell you that Android is rocking the market and getting in newly so-called best android tv boxes in 2018 and that is actually why it's taking more places like smartwatches and GPS; if you would like to know more about android box check androidboxtv website for more detailed reviews.

Firstly let’s see the iOS 6

This Apple’s iOS versions are the oldest compared to all the three top smartphones and it not only on just the iPhone but also on the iPad tablets. From the 2018 year to till now Apple didn’t change largely its Home Screen. We know that it’s a bit harsh on the Apple’s developers but the truth is without any major changes to its Home Screen it's not a very big deal. In this unreleased iOS 6, the notifications are updated and are similar to the Notification Center of the Android, in where notifications can be turned On or off but with two new buttons. One of these two buttons gives quick access to users for sending or updating their status on the Twitter or the Facebook and other keeps to appraise your friends updates them what you are doing presently and is a "tap" away from your Apple iOS 6.

Whatever app or browser or any of the application page you are on the Apple iOS, the four standard icons are always seen and be present on the dock. Moreover moving and dropping the icons to similar folders, like putting all your gaming apps to one gaming named folder even keep all the social network apps in a single folder.

The Apple’s iOS is stubborn to not change its look for about a few years now and is missing updates that are important and like the Window Phone, 8 arriving with colorful tiles and concept of live tiles is something for iOS to argue for it being little outdated. But compared to sales it's not harming them and well WP’s market sale is not much, right?

About the Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean 4.1

Present Android version running is the Ice Cream Sandwich as it is the shiniest and the newest in the top-selling market. But, with the announcing of the new Android called the Jelly Bean set to be released at the Google I/O event. The Android has a collection of lots of icons on its home screen as similar to the iOS version, but Android differs the ability to add widgets to the home screen. Still has the ability where you can add the weather notifications or the clocks or quick access to media streams or controlling your music too. There are tons of android widgets that suit your needs.

A feature that was first developed by Android was the pull-down drawer, where it shows and hosts your notifications, but the iOS version has it too and is slightly smarter compared to the Android version. Arranging different icons and almost customizing your whole smartphone is just made easy for the users by the Android giving it a different home screen experience. Something either the iOS or the Windows Phone owners can do to their smartphones.

Finally let’s see about the Windows Phone 8, here we go then,

Fingers are crossed by Microsoft and Nokia as they are hoping their new Windows 8 Phone can be a hit for the users as it has been updated to a Windows Platform as the Nokia’s giant put all their chips in this Microsoft version, with backing its hardware up.

With the new "Live" tiles where customers can move or resize its tiles and one more thing is its all done on one screen of the Windows 8 Phone, giving users a different kind of home screen experience, like displaying one massive recent emails live tile, without even launching an app. With the whole new live tile experience by the Windows Phone 8 providing fancy images, updated data’s and new colors giving a live feel to the users. So, it can be a bit busy as a live update on your live tiles of your home screen of the WP8 giving an "online" feels so if that’s a problem then it's your choice and your money, so, you have options to select one of the best.

So the choice of Selecting the best then lets Wrap-up.

We have provided the comparison and you have the options, so just selecting a fancy and adorable home screen display is now not a single option and with favourite user platform options too, choosing the iOS, Android or Windows Phone will be tough as even the hardware, as well as the community support, puts a good smartphone platform. With the Icons on the home screen helping for sure and if all the three combined together can make one winner rather carrying all the three phones one at a time.
