"It may be the best all-around smart phone."5.0 starson by structure3city
Pros: Absolutely beautiful screen
Great user interface
Size (not too big)
Cons: Inability to add anything you want to Newsstand
Inability to turn off alerts for individual calendars
Inconsistent call quality when using a headset
Summary: This phone is brilliant. It's not revolutionary, but that wasn't a precondition for my phone purchase. I'm glad that the screen is not any bigger than it is. In fact, I didn't want a bigger screen than the 4/4s, but the longer screen is just on the border of what's acceptable to me for a smart phone.
The iPhone 5 has an amazing screen. The best phone display industry tester Displaymate has ever seen (http://www.displaymate.com/Smartphone_ShootOut_2.htm). In person, the screen is just incredible. I wanted to like the Samsung Galaxy S3 screen (because I was very close to buying this phone), but it looked over-saturated and skewed yellow-green, which, as Displaymate found, it was.
There are a lot of great phone choices right now, but switching from Android (Samsung Moment) to an iPhone was the right choice for me. I prefer the general layout of ios better than android, which tends to look busy to me, and I like the form factor. Syncing has worked well for me and the Apple apps store is great. Aside from some call quality issues (the source of which is yet to be determined), I love this phone.
