Exchange 13 has following better things compared to Exchange 2010

Simplified administration: Due to web based
Managed availability:- Single HA for mailbox and Public folders
Outlook Web App: Good for phone/Tablets
SharePoint integration:
Data Loss Prevention (DLP): built-in DLP rules to identify, monitor, and protect sensitive data and inform users about policy
Manage eDiscovery: Use a single interface* to search your Exchange mailboxes, SharePoint sites, and Lync conversations.
[Low Cost CAS Array]:- Small organization can build CAS array with L4 architecture which is cheaper than Level7.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

example about what I can do in Exchange 2013 but I cannot do it in Exchange 2010

1) Cost effective cas array (level 4). (due to single end point of http).
2) minimum hardware, as no hub transport role,unified messanging,edge transport.
3) Free DLP: Check message content, if its violating policy, then block/forward mail.
4) Even Public folders will be part of DAG, no separate HA for them.
5) manage exchange from any machine. (Web based).
6) Single Namespace.. Single certificate(SAN) to reduce certificate cost.

Some features not menioned above:
1. Each Exchange 2013  DB has its own storeworker process. That improves the performance and isolates problems for each DB.
2. DAG High Availability does automatic load balancing based on performance of several server parameters. IT can be a bad feature sometimes if your servers are not reliable.
3. Exchange 2013 brings in better IO performance (may be around 50% reduction from 2010).
4. Transport dumpster (safety net) is a improved feature for storing e-mails untill they are delivered. Actually they are kept even after delivery.
5. HUB functionality is part of Mailbox Role. CAS only does proxying of connections. There is no email processing in CAS server role.
6. Mailbox role now does the spyware and spam filtering.
