Let’s start with Maps, which is already news.
Here Jelly Bean wins the competition. iOS 6 flyover feature looks pretty cute; however, it is not that great and useful. Turn by turn navigation in Google maps is pretty accurate.

Mail and Browsing

Looks and UI
iOS looks great always and in each iteration company has changed the overall look subtly that looks better. Company has introduced the retina display, which is even better. Early versions of OS, Android did not look like Unified. Google hasn’t changed the overall look of Jelly bean.
Using Siri will be funny and in iOS, it is much more useful. Here you cn get sports data, can book restaurants, and movie listings. On the other hand, Google is faster now, offers you ambient history, and calendar appointments.
However, in the end, both the systems are great. After all, Google wins the competition with Google Maps.
