Our second Lifehacker Award for today is a doozy: best mobile OS. What do we most want to see on our phones?

Readers’ Choice: Android

Claiming close to 60 per cent of the vote, Android comfortably romped it in, with iOS mopping up most of the rest of the votes.

Editor’s Pick: BlackBerry

The fact that BlackBerry 10 didn’t lead to the turnaround it wanted shouldn’t detract from the fact that it’s a really-well executed mobile OS — fast, fluid, well-designed, efficient, and easily the simplest OS to use on a phone one-handed. Hopefully some of these concepts will remain in the future, whatever happens to BlackBerry.

Thanks everyone for voting! Keep checking back throughout the week for more winners.
