As an owner of an HTC One X, I can say there isn't:

-A VNC Client I would rely on (iOS has iTeleport)
-An Office Editing Suite I would rely on (iOS has iWork)
-An FTP Client I would rely on (iOS has FTPonTheGoPro)
-An IMAP Mail client that is as robust as Apple's iOS Mail Client

Additionally, apps such as Rdio, Twitter, Facebook, and even Sketchbook Pro are cheap facsimiles of their iOS equivalent.

Finally, although some of it is HTC-related, I've yet to own an Android device that didn't glitch out to the point of requiring some software reset within 6 months of ownership. These range from Nexus devices with screwy GPS functionality to my One X shutting off from the LTE network. You want to know who has time for that? Nobody. To be fair, my 4s had a similar problem. The difference was Apple's comparatively thorough iCloud synchronization meant I was back to where I left off.

So yeah, common sense.
