#9 Your home screen can be alive
Tired of the old iOS dead-fish home screen with nothing but a grid of icons? In Android, you can add widgets that do and display all sorts of information. In this screen, for example, I have a Flipboard widget displaying a top news item, the current Dow index, how much data I've used so far, how long it will take to drive home (and whether or not there's traffic — green means a smooth ride), the current temperature, and the barometric pressue.
All at a glance. The iPhone can't do that.
Image courtesy way too much time spent playing with widgets.
