Yeah, voice dial is pretty nice to have... Being that my old motorola 710 had it... Ugh...
Be nice to have easier text editing too... It's excruciating on the Droid. And well, maybe a keyboard that's usable.
Be nice to have a battery last more than a few hours..
Not that I'd go back to my BB anythime soon tho... I sure miss a few things about them quite badly.

JDWX: I'm not sure how long you've been using yours, but you sound like me when I first got my Droid. There were weeks where I'd reactivate and go back to my Touch Pro 2 because I found some of the things you mentioned to be so frustrating. I finally got used to them though and now I'm fulltime Droid. I would suggest Swype and Handcent. They are both great and solved a lot of frustrations I had.

The stock keyboard also looks way better, in my opinion. Not a great reason, but I like it

I sort of switch between stock / swype.
For long messages, email, forum posts - instances when I need to type sentences I use swype. For SMS, browsing and such when it's quick messages without long words and there'll be a lot of shorhand and non-words - I use stock. It is nice having an option.
What Droid doesn't do?.... hmmm??.... make me mad, randomly reboot, require battery pulls, leak memory, use cell tower triangulation and call that inaccurate crap GPS, make me pay for every useful app, anything else? What?... I'm sorry I was distracted by the awesome screen resoltion and couldn't concentrate.
However, seriously -- I do intensely miss auto text (from Blackberry)

I don't like that it does not natively support IT policy enforcement and therefore have to pay for a 3rd party app to sync with exchange (although Touchdown is a nice app and better than similar apps available for Blackberry).
This is probably silly, but I wish I had the option to sort contacts by last name.

If your contacts are in Gmail/Google, export them to a .csv file. Then open in excel. the first column will be the full name which is what shows up in Contacts on the Droid. Use the Concatenate function in a new column to combine the name as you want it to display (Last, First). Delete the original full name column and replace it with the new. Save the file as a .csv file.
Open Gmail and delete all contacts then import from your new file. The only odd issue left is some of my Facebook contacts still show up first/last but this must pull directly from FB.
Should take 5 minutes.Blackberry Curve ---> OG Droid ---> Samsung Fascinate ---> back to Droid--->Thunderbolt--->Galaxy S3
