Can anyone recommend a quality trading platform/software + data service for swing/position trading US/UK stock, free or paid subscription?

Ideally, I would like to use on PC (Windows 10), tablet and smartphone - both of which are Android devices.

I would like to paper trade some strategies I currently have but am dubious of all the hype surrounding various platforms/software. Just want an honest independent answer?

Also, on the same note, can anyone recommend a "quality" broker(s) for the same, ideally UK based (as am I) but would consider US based if possible/advisable?
