-it just works, no need to flash roms, custom kernals and all that crap to make your device work
-iCloud, seamless backup on your phone... android doesnt even have a "standard" backup solution. its either lol root then lol install titanium backup lol or use samsung kies LOL
-hands down the best selection of quality apps
Nobody NEEDS to flash the ROM to get their phone to work; of the three choices all are beyond stable for normal usage.
What do you need to backup to iCloud that isn't sync'd to the Google servers, or the Microsoft Skydrive? Google's cloud services are the "standard" backup service, your Gmail is on the servers, so are your contacts and so are your docs. One would assume you have a copy of your music on your desktop/laptop.
I think without any bias the advantages/disadvantages of each phone are:
1. Screen quality is very good
2. Great build quality
3. Easy warranty support
4. Consistent UX
5. Fast and consistent software updates
6. Great camera
1. Glass is inherently fragile
2. Consistent UX does not allow for customization
1. Large screen
2. Android has a lot of third party development
3. Great camera
1. GSIII is coming out soon
2. Samsung takes ~6 months to update software
1. Large screen
2. Consistent UX
3. Great build quality wihtout being fragile
1. Specs are lacking
2. Doesn't record in 1080p
3. ?? Windows Phone 8 Update ??
4. Low DPI screen
