First, it is an all-new-designed iPhone. So, We are done with the old looking iPhone we saw on the 4 and 4S to a similar design on the iPhone 5.

Now lets talk about what Apple calls it "Ultrafast wireless". The iPhone 5 now has a faster data connection. LTE was built in this iPhone just for the amazing speed.
"iPhone 5 does LTE the right way" Apple says, "optimized for better battery life and designed for ultrafast connectivity in a thin profile"

Then we have the new processor. Apple included the all new A6 chip in the iPhone 5 which makes the iPhone runs up to twice as fast, and better graphics. Running with the new iOS 6 and the new battery just makes it much better.
