Physically, this phone is sublime. I love the iPhone 4/4S design so I'm glad Apple didn't sway far from it. The aluminum back is a very welcome update as I cracked the 4S' glass back twice. The larger screen is great while still being comfortable to hold and operate one-handed.

The most surprising thing, however, is how light it is. I still haven't gotten used to but my pockets say thank you! The battery looks to be much improved over the 4S. Also, LTE! It's like night and day from the creepy crawling 3G speeds.

The only knock I would give the phone is that I desperately want a shortcut for bluetooth, wifi, and hotspot controls. Having to go through Setting to toggle them is a hassle. Otherwise, the iPhone 5 is a worthy successor to the 4S and a great phone!
