Every iPhone looks and works the same. Yes, it's true you can't customize the launcher, but you can't customize the launcher. That means when your mom calls with a question about how to use her iPhone, you can answer knowing her phone works exactly like yours does.
When it comes to Android, there are a bunch of different candy coated names (Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, Honeycomb), and even different launchers, not just dependent on which phone maker you have, but also those you might add on your own. It gives a ton of freedom, but it's sure not the best for predictability.
Personally, I still like tweaking my new Android, but there is something to be said for consistency of home screens.

3. Microsoft Office 365 support
While it's pretty obvious why Microsoft hasn't given in and offered a version of Office for the iPad, they have provided a version of Office for the iPhone that's functionally identical to that on Windows Phone. As an Office 365 user, I would like to have had that feature on Android, but it's not available (at least for now).
I miss that. Sure, there are a lot of Office clones on Android, including one that came with the phone, but it's not the same thing as running real Office Mobile for my Office 365 account on my phone.
I miss that.

4. My Kindle app won't dim the screen as much
I know this is a nit, but since I read on my phone every night before going to bed, it's one I feel keenly. I read in the dark and the Kindle app on the iPhone would dim down to almost no light.
By contrast, even by fiddling with Android and Kindle settings, I can't get the screen to dim down enough. I suspect there's an app that would do it, but I also suspect I'd have to root my phone just to get screen dimming. I'm not about to root my phone, and so I miss the screen dimming ability of my iPhone.
Now, that's dim! Image courtesy the iPhone Kindle app.
