The main reason why iOS is still ahead of Android towards the end of 2012 is the quality of execution in design and technology. Android however is focused on functionality.
A couple of most bright examples I can fetch out of the top of my head are Voice over and iMessage.
Voice over makes the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch almost fully accessible for visually impaired and totally blind people and competitors don't have any reliable technology that can compete. Voice over in iOS 5 makes it possible for visually impaired users to use apps, play games, use twitter and any other built in software and gives almost 100% functionality support experience.
iMessage makes it possible to send text messages for free from Apple to Apple device, which makes SMS technology redundant.
