    So today finally I upgraded from 3GS to 5s. What and how should I check to make sure everything is good.. dead pixel, tint/color shade, camera..
    Are there any standard ways to check for this?

    Turn it on. Can you see the screen? Does it make calls? Take pictures? Does it connect to wifi, bluetooth? If so, it's good.

    Yes.. the basic things I have already checked. Want to check for the subtle details now, like the screen and camera quality, speakers... I read about different tints on the screen. If I had to, then I can return it within 3 days.
    Also, how do I get the iWorks suit?

    As for those subtle details, that's all up to your discretion. If it operates fine, then don't worry about it compared to anyone else'.

    For iWorks suite you should be able to go into the App store and download them. I read about some people not being able to for whatever reasons and if that happens for you, just do a quick search on here and you should find an answer.

    If it works for you, keep it. Don't look for reasons to hate it.

    Wow, what a upgrade. That's HUGE. It's almost like when I went from a dumb phone to the first iphone... I know you've noticed a big difference OP?

    You need some quality time with it. I would not install a lot of apps at the beginning until you get a feel for the phone.

    You should be able to visually see if there are any dead pixels...

    The phone will tell you if you want to download iWork suite. Yes, it does that.

    Do you have to return it in three days? I thought the standard is 14 days. Anyway, I just want to say don't bother yourself with the details and just use the phone. If you find anything you are not comfortable with, return it. If not, I doubt you will bother with anything others keep beating drums about.

    Just use it. If there are problems you'll find them. No sense in worrying over problems that don't exist.
