So, I use an iPhone. And an iPad. I'm not an Apple fangirl or anything and I don't get into the whole “my mobile device is better than your mobile device and you are stupid” fights (I get enough of that from my brother-in-law, who calls everyone who owns an iPhone stupid). I just like my phone because it does what I need it to do, it doesn't confuse me, and also it's pretty. I tell you all of that to tell you this: I had no idea emojis varied across different devices. I'm old and silly and sad. The differences, though? Oh, my god. They are something. In may of these, you'll see a comparison of Apple, Android (Google), and Samsung, while others include LG. Proceed at your own risk.

1 The Painful Grin
I like all three versions of this, to be honest, but Apple is my favorite. Android's got a pretty fly version, though. That emoji is serious.
2 The Other Kind of O Face
Samsung's little face is so cute! He looks so sad and pitiful! I think it's the eyebrows.
3 I'm Tired
Okay. I am legit worried about the Samsung emoji. He looks extremely ill. This is truly tasteless, but he looks like Tom Hanks at the end of Philadelphia and it makes me sad.
4 Rage Face
SAMSUNG, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? That is not anger. That emoji just ate one too many tacos. He just swallowed the shot that's going to come back on him.
5 The Heart Eyes
Okay, so these are pretty similar. The expressions, though … 'kay.
6 Disappointed Face
Oh, I love these. Samsung's mouth.
The following few photos include LG's emojis, as well. For those of you keeping up, the line-up is Apple, Android, Samsung, and LG. Google's manicure game is tired, but I love LG's version. Great color!
8 Dancing Girl
What. No. Only Apple and Samsung win.
I think Android is always going to lose, tbh.
10 Raise the Roof
I take that back. Android wins!
11 The Poo
When poo is involved, everybody wins.
12 Praying Hands
Android. Hands down – or pressed together, whatever.
13 Crossed Arms
Honestly? Android's emoji is far better for the mood you are usually in when you use this emoji. NO.
14 Monster Emoji
These are both adorable, honestly.
15 All the Differences
Just so you can get a handle on the wealth of differences between emojis, here they are all spread out for you. The only photo I could find included Twitter, obvi, but no biggy. Android's sassy lady is maybe my favorite.
16 All the Holidays
There are even differences between the holidays, although they aren't so weird. Well, okay, Android's Santa is … actually, he's quite cute, ain't he?
17 The Guide
And just in case you ever need a guideline for all the many emojis in the world.
I feel like I've learned something today. I also think I will maybe stick with my iPhone. Furthermore, I think we can all agree that no matter what your phone or your platform, the middle finger emoji is the best thing that ever happened.
