I have owned each version of the iPhone and this one seems to be the best yet. The larger screen, lighter weight and thinner profile are the biggest pluses for me. Some small touches such as the "do not disturb" feature is really nice way to prevent your phone from buzzing all night long while you sleep. Apple maps thus far seems to be a comparable offering to Google Maps for my purposes. It looks nicer and the turn by turn directions are a huge upgrade. And I will say the web browsing does seem faster. Not sure if that is the WiFi or A6 chip, but the speed increase is noticeable. And as other reviewers have said, the new headphones are quite nice. The linkage to Facebook is nice too. I now see pictures of all my contacts who I am connected to on Facebook Battery Life The battery life seems about the same as the iPhone 4s. It is at 83% after being unplugged for about 4 hours. If it makes it through the day with 30% left, it will be better than the iPhone 4. Display/Screen Quality It is really nice having a larger screen. More e-mail, more apps, etc. And since it is thinner, you don't pay the price in terms of extra weight. Call Quality I have not noticed a difference. AT&T is still pretty sub par in this regard. Ease of Use The restore from iCloud made setting the phone up a absolute breeze. All I had to do was sign in and restore and voila! My new iPhone 5 has all the same apps and settings as my old phone. Durability The front glass and back metal seem very scratch resistant. Design I am very familiar with Apple operating systems and products so everything works as one would expect in this regard.
