No phone is perfect. No matter which you choose for your next upgrade, there will always be features you wish you had. While Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 are just showing signs of life, Android and iOS are kings of the mobile realm. So why should your next phone run iOS? One of the nicest features of iOS is its centralized notification center. Everything that needs your attention can be found in one place. Emails, retweets, game notifications, the whole enchilada. Even better? You can silence them all with iOS’s Do Not Disturb mode. iOS also has Siri, which started out kind of rocky but finds itself more integrated into Apple’s core apps and more useful with every software update. iOS’s Passbook is another excellent app distancing it from Android. Passbook gives you a place to store tickets, gift cards, loyalty cards and more, minimizing the amount of stuff you need to carry around with you. Android is great, but feature for feature iOS holds its own.
