Display Size - 4 vs 4.8 is a huge difference
NFC - I use smart tags multiple times a day
Motion Controls - put phone up to your head while texting to call that contact, flip phone over to mute calls, smart stay, etc
LED indicator - for notifications witout unlocking the phone
Expandable Memory - Micro SD up to 64 gigs, don't have to pay Apple crazy money for more memory
USB - much easier to "sync". No iTunes BS, just drag and drop like a flash drive
Larger removable battery
Haptic feedback
iOS vs ICS - too much to talk about here
You're comparing an phone built by an electronics "puppy mill" to an intuitive computer, which happens to have phone capabilities (iPhone) -built by one of the most visionary companies in our generation. There is not one electronics company, Samsung or whomever, that has successfully centralized seamlessly our media and harnessed a cultural movement that can be carried in one's hand like Apple. Sorry, dude.
