1. Near Field Communication (NFC) for mobile payments.
This allows you to beam content with other devices by just tapping them together. Apple instead has a Passbook system where you can store tickets, boarding passes, gift cards and etc., but it can’t do things like let you send money wirelessly through Paypal.
2. Swype on Keyboard
Unlike Apple, Androids have a swipe option where instead of texting all your messages, you can drag letters without lifting your finger. This makes texting easier and faster.
3. SD card support
Although the iPhone 5 has a 64 GB, double from the 4’s 32 GB, it would still be nice to have extra storage space. Having an SD card would help greatly with this but it is unlikely that Apple will provide that anytime soon.
4. 128 GB Option
We’d love to be able to have all our music on our phones and not have to leave any on our desktop.
5. Non-proprietary dock connection
The iPhone introduces a new micro-dock connection that requires a special cable of its own. You still can’t use a regular USB port and standard USB cable to sync it.
6. A micro-HDMI port
If you want to get video off of your phone, it requires the use of a special adapter. This makes taking things from your phone to your TV a lot harder and more expensive.
7. Replaceable battery:
Even though the battery life for the iPhone 5 has been improved a little, it still is not enough for those who live off their phones. It would be nice to have an extra battery on hand just in case.
8. Better battery life
The battery life on the 5 is still the same as the 4S with minor changes. This doesn’t compare to the Razr Maxx by Android.
