    Customization & the freaking back button. LOL
    Sometimes I wish my iPhone could look like some of these cool Android devices out their with different ROMs and such...but then I realize, I didn't even change the ROM on my LG G3 so i wouldn't do that anyway. LOL Plus the support is better and I have 128GB OF STORAGE!

    Thanks for the replies. I'm sure I'll miss the back button. But I just don't have the time/drive to take advantage of the customization Android potentially offers (although it is an awesome, legitimate pro to the OS).

    Customization as well as the ability to download files straight from the web.

    I like my 6+, but still like android better. Google Now works much better on android than on iOS. Also like notifications better on android. Even this app is better on android and it is imore. Having said that I like apple products but keep an OPO and Nexus 6 to keep me going. After a week on my iPhone, I get bored and have to go back for my fix. Having said that, the iPhone 6+ is a very capable device.

    The biggest thing I miss is the ability to say default apps.

    As a first time iPhone user with the 6+, the only thing that I miss is Tasker/Llama. I did not do anything super fancy, but I did have my moto x change the volume when I connected to my work wifi and could silence the phone based on day and time. And notifications are handled way better on android IMO.

    Smart unlock in lollipop. But the fingerprint sensor helps.

    Been Android ever since the G1 days. Finally decided to give iOS a try. Just off the top of my head the thing I miss most about Android is being able to download music, install non play store apps, file system control, ad blocking (root), and of course the many customization options.

    I think that's about the only thing I'm going to miss when my phone finally gets here is the ability for just about any app to share it's assets with any other.

    I have been an Android user for years. This is my first iPhone, but I have an iPad as well so I knew what to expect. I honestly don't miss anything. I always though widgets cluttered my screen and hardly ever used them and the rooting and putting on new ROMs was fun for awhile, but it became too much of chore and I just don't have the time for it anymore. The iPhone just works and that's what I like about it.

    There are a few things I miss some were mentioned above, but the keyboard I miss the most it was the hardest thing to get used to.

    That's what scares me. I'm considering the leap to a 6s+ for my next phone, but I use the share menu in Android so much. I don't think I can deal without it.

    I was concerned about this as well. I have not had any issues though. Sharing has improved quite a bit. I have not had a situation that frustrated me like I did a few years ago. Sharing is not what it is on android but so far I have been able to do what I need to do. I guess it depends on how you use sharing.

    I missed the push email for gmail. But I since learned a workaround so it is no longer a issue. I'm all good.

    Doesn't just using the Gmail app take care of that, or does that not push either?

    Yes I know that but I needed better alerts than what come with the app. So I had to use something else. Due to my work I can get called in at anytime. So I needed the most obnoxious alerts for the middle of the night lol. The Gmail app you cannot change the alert tone unless I missed it.

    I miss the seamless Google integration. And Google Now from any screen. I can do much of the same things with the Google App but it's slightly clunkier.

    I miss Android notifications too. I could delete email right from my notification tray.

    The Gmail app on iOS is a little buggy. I use two accounts, one for work and one for personal, switching back and forth a lot. Often it'll get stuck loading one of the accounts and I need to close and restart the app. I just use Mailbox on iOS because I also like that quite a bit.

    There's lots about iOS that I like though, so it's not all bad.
