One feature I really like is being able to reply to texts from the notification. This allows you to reply without exiting your current app or even unlocking your phone. And if you miss the notification bar, you can slide down the notification menu and reply from there too

I think the main new feature and the only one that's worth upgrading for is being able to have all the new UWP apps (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, and all those promised apps from facebook, Messenger...)

Other than that, I don't really see anything new. Actually, many great features have been removed, such as the Smart Cam capabilities of the Lumia Camera. And Lumia Refocus, etc. I am also still waiting to get a proper app which will count my steps with the SensorCore (motion data seems to still be broken).

The visual aesthetics are also another reason why you might want to upgrade. I really like being able to make the keyboard smaller on a side on my Lumia 1520 and be finally able to shape-write with one hand after two years.
