The design is very Google, its simple and its clean, sorting friends into group or 'circles' as Google is calling them is a doddle with a simple drag and drop system, the syncing with email accounts is effortless and I'm sure its only time before its scans your Twitter Followers and Facebook Friends to incorporate them.
I am also really liking the photo albums, these come with a picture editor, something that Facebook doesn't do, offering the simple changes like rotate/size adjustments to Instagram style effects. I have yet to see much from the "Sparks" feature though it is early days and I'm sure that will come good with time.
Admittedly it is still very early days and I will reserve any major comment until it becomes more populated but after one day using it I am already suitably impressed and can see this putting a lot of pressure on Facebook. A break down of Google+ features is below:

You share different things with different people. But sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself, just like real life.
Remember when your Grandpa used to cut articles out of the paper and send them to you? That was nice. That’s kind of what Sparks does: looks for videos and articles it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something to watch, read, and share. Grandpa would approve.
Bumping into friends while you’re out and about is one of the best parts of going out and about. With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let buddies know you’re hanging out and see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until we perfect teleportation, it’s the next best thing.
