It's your thing. If you are not happy with the phone return it. All I'm doing here is explaining some areas that you had yet to learn since you are new to the platform. I'm happy with the iPhone but don't expect everyone else to be. That would make me a raging fanboi.
What are these features the iPhone has, that Android does not, that you like so much? Outside of being able to text other iPhone users for free (which I have unlimited texts anyway) I can't see something that Android does not have, and what's more, is equal to or superior to iPhones? I love my iPod, think it's a great portable music device, and felt the iPhone would have equal useability. I do not need my phone to be an iPod so I feel Apple's best feature is the one I need the least on my phone. The native Android email and texting client are vastly superior. The calendar functions seem about equal. For a device that I need mainly to sync with BT for use while driving, the actual phone function, and a strong Contacts, Calendar, and email client the Android comes out pretty objectively as the huge winner. I say "objectively" as obviously things like the tabbed email client, a single button "all read" for a mail box, etc. are pretty clearly superior.
