Ugh. You people are satisfied by simple things. You guys are going to pee your pants if Apple has what it takes to really get something better and different out to market.
Everything about the phone can be improved. From the resolution to the battery to the responsiveness, incorporating things that make sense and getting rid of the flack.
It's people like me who know how to invent and progress. And it's people like you who keep us stuck in one place.
Eventually you'll have a phone that functions solely as a phone...and you'll be happy about that, and you'll scream to the world that all the features everyone else enjoys in some capacity is some how worthless, and you'll start 200 threads talking about the reasons why you don't use/like each one of them.
And the best part? There still won't be anyone who takes your opinion seriously or cares.

Ok, it's Why (Almost) Nobody likes Newstand, if you want to get technical.
Fact is We put up with too much **** from our technology today.
Why do I have to wait 2 to 10 seconds for a webpage to load? That's way too long. Why don't we have programs and games that we can talk to someone in the game? Or a language learning program that grades your speech? And why does it take so long to pull out the camera and switch from photo to video recording?
It's not revolutionary until its unbelievable.

What I like about my iPhone...
Integration and ecosystem.
Retina is great.
Touch response is coherent and smooth.
Glass backplate is gorgeous. It's unfortunate that it is so easy to scratch, and to break. I'd happily go without a case... not that I don't like mine.
General use is very satisfying.

Perfect size. Quality materials and therefore quality build and feel. Reliable. Greatest choice of apps and games. Enjoyable and slick user experience, you never feel you are wrestling with the phone to get things done. Touch responsiveness is second to none. Seamless integration with my MacBook iPad and Apple TV.
There's probably more but this is what comes to mind straight off of the bat.

I like pretty much everything about the iPhone. After dealing with Android and BB for the last two years and coming back to iPhone I'm good to go.
At first I wasn't impressed with the retina display until I put my reading glasses on lol. Then I was like damn this is nice.
Although I do prefer the styling of the 3GS compared to the 4/4S. I like the curved design of the 3GS but I also like the slim profile of the 4/4S.

Coming from BB and Android, I always thought there's going to be something about the phone that I don't like. But so far I find that the 4S does everything I want and do it flawlessly. Only complaint I have is the data speed, but that's more of a network problem more than the phone problem. Although I gotta admit that 4S, for me personally, have better reception of any phone I've had so far.

The Apple iPhone 4S remains one of the most popular smartphones on the market, thanks to its many excellent features as well as its iconic design.
I am continually amazed by its build quality, and it really feels like a premium device. It is a world away from the plastic-y construction of many other smartphones.
It is the full package in terms of features. Its native multimedia ecosystem, which consists of iPod, iTunes and AppStore puts it way ahead of the competition in this respect. The AppStore provides a massive part of the appeal of the device, thanks to its ability to massively increase the versatility of the device by downloading apps of which there are hundreds of thousands to choose from within a number of categories.
But the real reason I like this phone so much is that it just works. With no restarts, no reboots, no hesitation, no lags.

iCloud. Thank god for iCloud. Backups and restores galore. Contacts backup and Find My iPhone. And to follow up to iRetired, Apple always tends to make products to the best right from the beginning without having to try and upgrade anything, just like their line of computers. Top of the line processors, memory, video cards etc... They don't make cheap and make you spend more later, they want you to pay for something that is ready out the box to tackle whatever you throw at it, and that's what keeps Apple on top and why us the consumers continue to pay extra for just that.

I wasnt a fan of touch screen (having a bad experiences with an LG phone) till I got an iPhone.
1: I find the touch screen operation is superb.
2: The amount and range of accessories is excellent.
3: I like the design of the iPhone.
4: Its a very reliable and stable device.
5: Excellent amount of apps and more importantly too, good quality apps.
6: Whenever I get a new iPhone, I can simply choose to restore from a backup and have everything on it the same as before.
7: Extremely easy to use. My mother who is 68 and not very tech literate, has an iPhone and a iPad. Now she can use these without any trouble, this goes to show in my opinion what a easy and intuative device iOS, iPhone, iPad are.
