I think the thing that frustrates me more is that I can't long press between icons to access settings like widgets and what not. I use this a lot to access PandaHome settings to hide icons. To me you should be able to long press between icons to access this instead of having to leave a blank spot where you could put another icon.
Something that hasn't been brought up yet is that Android lets you put icons that are bigger than the standard 1x1 on your desktop like 2x1, 2x2, etc. Something that isn't possible with the "other" phone.
