While that's true, I wasn't specifically talking about that. An iPhone backup (which takes one click) can be restored (with only about 2 or 3 clicks) onto another phone leaving it identical to the original. There isn't anything on Android that can do this.

I have an S4 and an iPhone 5 and i much prefer the S4 but there is nothing even 1/10 as good as iTunes when it comes to desktop interaction with the phone and I think that is a major drawback. My piano teacher (who is a technically capable lady in her 60s) recently asked me about an Android phone vs an iPhone and I didn't hesitate to recommend an iPhone solely for this reason. She has no desire to faff about with backups and syncing and doing both of those on Android is a giant faff and a huge pig's ear.
