A lot of these things can be done on an iPhone, just differently.

Camera wrist flip = flip up on the screen. Pressing the button is irrelevant, you can press it while you're taking it out of your pocket.

The iPhone has Google Now and Siri. Siri can tell me the temperature and set alarms for me as well. Nothing innovative there. Pressing a button is irrelevant unless terrorists tie you up in a chair.

Car integration works perfectly with my wife's car and her iPhone. All hands free. Again, nothing the iPhone can't do.

The iPhone has Do Not Disturb. I use it every day. The settings are different than Android's, but they're not bad.

I have an iPhone. Love it. I also have a SGS4. It's good, there are some things that it does that the iPhone doesn't, but it's not enough to make me switch. The iTunes integration is light years ahead of Google's (come on, who makes people upload every single music file?).

If you're going to try to show why people should switch, showing things that the iPhone does, but differently, isn't the way to go.

And why is it that people think that because Apple hasn't "innovated" anything in a year means it's time to switch?
