Windows Phone has...
-tiles that update so I don't have to open an app to see important info
-one place that shows me all of my social media updates without ever needing to open the app
-people hub that links all of my contacts many different accounts in the world for one neat place to see them
-Rooms, which is my favorite. A place where I can privately share pics, docs, one note lists with my wife and another room for co-workers
-Kids Corner, nice to have a place where I can give people (not just kids) my phone to play a game without giving them access to my life
i will let others add there own things

On iOS/Android you also can't:
-Use sound enhancement apps that work with streaming as well as content stored on the phone
-Stream music files from the store seamlessly through the main media player
-integrate songs from the stores in auto generated mixes
-have a dynamic artist spotlight on lock screen and start screen while listening to music.
-Switch from mobile view to desktop view in settings.

streaming works well, 'main' player is whichever app is chosen, so playstore, gmusic, mxplayer, vlc, or whatever will do that
there is a 'shuffle' button
mobile/desktop is in extended controls (touch extreme L/R side of webpage) , or if one prefers, browser settings.

social media- apps for that, sorry, I personally don't do social media so I can't recommend a good one
people puller- mmm, no social media, seen a few, didn't like them, yours wins
rooms, I get the concept, that's neat. I think blackberry is doing it better with home/corporate access. still, kidzone is very specific, and a very good idea for pacifying kids of this era.
also, evernote and a shared account is doing very well for me and the wife. a new file, picture, document, pdf, anything... is attached and I can view and edit it immediately.
Good points, I was expecting a really tough comparison, but this is easy so far. Keep em coming.

- tweetdeck (you have to open me tile for this, you open tweetdeck on android)
- again tweetdeck does this
- so basically a group IM client. there are a gazillion of them on Android
- you can put privacy on apps like messages on Android

Group of all the girls I stalk can be pinned to my start screen so as soon as one of them is near me or had a fight with her potato salad, tile flips and tell me who and where to follow!
Disclaimer: that was a hypothetical scenario and I don't stalk people! ;)

Secondly at the end of the day you WILL need an app. I can explain to you the number of thing you can do with a dedicated app as opposed to built in integration but that will take several hours of typing.
