Control Center Android's quick access to commonly used functions through its notifications tray is a boon, especially in Samsung's feature-laden version. Now, iOS 7 makes using common features easy, and it doesn't mix them with notifications. Swipe up from the bottom to open the Control Center to access Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and Rotation Lock or Mute (whichever the physical side switch is not set to). You also control playback of music, videos, and podcasts, and manage AirPlay.

There are also quick access buttons to the Camera and Clock apps on all iOS devices, plus the Calculator app and new LED flashlight on iPhones. If you have an iOS device with a Lightning connector, you also can set up AirDrop file-sharing feature here.
