    The picture quality and color depth. Coming from an Iphone 4S I noticed the difference immediately....the screen looks gorgeous and its one of the least talked about improvements.

    I'd say the speed of opening tasks/multitasking/apps. It's blistering fast, and web browsing is also crazy fast. The screen is meh to me since I'm used to great screens (One X and S3). The design is also beautiful too though, especially the black!

    There have been quite a few different articles about how the iPhone 5 has the best screen of any smart phone

    I have to agree. I am looking at a photo of me from a wedding this past weekend where I had on a purple tie.

    On the 4S the tie looks to be a dark blue color, the 5 is much more accurate to reality. It would have been kind of nice when I was shopping for the wedding though, I was trying to compare the colors of some shirts, but I knew the color was different in reality.

    Screen, LTE, and overall thinness make this a whole new device in your hand. I am loving it.

    I've only shot one video with the iP5 so far, but the audio (3 mics) was impressive.

    It was the first thing I noticed when I went to go see the 5. Screen and color display was impressive.

    Not for nothin, but the screen on the S3 is FAR from "great". Not even close, actually.

    The Screen.
    The black sleek look.

    I was actually really surprised to see how lightweight it was, compared to a 4 or 4S.

    The screen on the S3 is definitely great, the i5 may have a clearer and sharper panel, but the One X still has the best panel I've ever seen in display technology. In terms of screen:

    One X > i5 > S3

    This phone is literally better in every way from the iPhone 4S, and it's truly a stunning piece of hardware.
