You answered the first part of your own question when you said OS. As for drawbacks it's like any other OS it depends on what your expectations are from it. No OS is perfect. You work within the limitations of the OS or find an alternative.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Android is an OS based on Linux and strongly developed by Google. It's open source, moduler, and can be quite fun.

Of all the phone/tablet OSes it's probably the best, most useful, but has a great potential to be abused due to malware and untrusted app sources. The others aren't as open or hackable but don't have as many opportunities to be abused.

If you want a safe, locked, dictated OS use an iPhone. Less like a computer but 95% safe and secure. (Not jail broken.)

Never used a windows phone but the ones I've seen seem just like a locked down version of the OS.

The XDA developers site has lots of ideas and support if you need it.
