    Hi - Just did this as moving from 3gs to android.

    Google a solution but for me this worked perfectly.

    Contacts:

    Install the My Contacts Backup app from the App Store.
    Launch the app and tap on Backup. This backup your current contacts on your iPhone.
    Once complete, tap Email to attach the VCF file to an email.
    Send the email with the attached VCF file to your Gmail account.
    On your Android phone, open the email with the attached VCF file and download the file to import the contacts to your phone.


    SMS:
    Follow How To Transfer IPhone Text Messages (SMS) To Android Phone

    Finally - for my cheap Huawei Y300 the google keyboard does not show emoticons and standard sms app does not allow ringtone per contact so I found Textra and Textra emoticons plug in and all is perfect now.

    Only 1 week but cheap Y300 beats 3GS hands down now...so far!

    Good Luck.

    From the Google perspective:

    1. Google+/Google Drive (Sharing via Google+ by far, includes AutoAwesome, AutoEnhance, etc)
    2. This doesn't natively exist in Android quite yet, Helium is a good thing to look into.
    3. Google Play Music - 3.1 It can easily import your iTunes library via your desktop/laptop
    4. Google Calendar
    5. Google Keep

    All of this is available via a desktop/laptop browser as well as with dedicated apps for Android and some, like Google+ you might already be using on iOS. There are other apps if you need a specific feature, but for core functionality those are 5 the 10-12 apps that should be (IMO) running on just about every device.

    For the SMS/Call Logs there isn't an easy cloud way that I'm aware of, but there is an desktop app called MobileTrans that can do this. I'm sure there are others, but that's the one that I've heard of.

    I have tried Helium and it doesn't work as you might expect, coming from iOS. To put it differently: There is no solution at the moment that doesn't require you to root your device! Ridiculous..
    I can also confirm that the Google Play Music Manager works very well and will put your iTunes library to the Google cloud..
    What about your calendar and notes needs? Do you plan in staying with iCloud? For notes you could use OneNote, or Evernote. You will find clients for Mac and PC, and you can easily sync your data.
    As far as Photostream concerns, Google+ Photos is the equivalent, but Photostream is much more integrated with your Mac and other devices. I am using Aperture on my Mac and there is no way to automatically upload new pics to Google+..Only if I use Picasa (which I don't), I have the option to automatically upload my pics to Google+.
