Near Field Communications allows your smartphone to transmit data to other phones and tablets in the vicinity. It's really handy for sharing pictures and music. You can even use it to pay at stores and restaurants! Plenty of great Android and Windows phones offer NFC, but not Apple.
6. Multiple windows
You'd never settle for seeing just one window on your computer, why would you on your phone? Samsung Galaxy phones, as well as LG's G2, Optimus and Enact are superb at letting you see multiple apps at once. Other Android phones and the iPhone stick to displaying a single app at a time.
7. Plenty of storage space
Most smartphones come with anywhere between 16 and 32 gigabytes of storage. Extra space is a nice luxury, but these days you'll be saving most of your media in the cloud.
