    I had the HTC One X+ and the things I miss about that are BEATS Audio and the 64GB storage.

    I really miss the Apple app store. Usually people put out apps for the iPhone first then the android. I miss all the "quality" apps.

    Honestly, not much, other than my older phone didn't heat up when I played games on it!

    Very little.

    Had a short period of missing my iPhone, but after downloading an iOS look-alike launcher for a few hours, my eyes burned and I missed nothing haha.

    Honestly, there's so many things I like on my new phone compared to things I'd miss on my iphone, there's no comparison.

    I miss the ring profiles feature on my BlackBerry Z10
    I miss the one touch ring profile change feature on my BlackBerry Z10
    I miss the OS speed and the quick-close feature on apps
    I miss the automatic bedside mode on my BlackBerry Bold 9900

    The rest, I don't miss - crappy battery life - I can certainly live without

    I miss the PalmOS DateBk app. They've attempted an Android version (Pimlical), but it's not even close. I miss a dedicated external portable keyboard. I have an old Stowaway folding BT that mostly works, but not like some of the ones I had.

    VDub - not sure about your storage - a 64GB microSD card and LOTS of cloud storage options should cover you.

    JellyBean - what quality apps aren't on Android that you miss? Most developers seem to have cross-platform their apps.

    Why did you give up the note 3? Did you make a trade with Rob Ford?

    I came from a nokia lumia 1020 so miss the camera but nothing else. I was willing to sacrifice and put up with windows phone but its just too broken as a platform so got a note 3. I must say though even for a normal phone camera the note 3s is quite bad, im finding pictures just arent sharp enough. Even in very bright indoor situations pictures come out blurry. This is a bit confusing though as the note 3 was ment to have the same sensor as the S4. I owned an s4 before the lumia and it took better pictures than the note. Only my opinion though
