The iPhone 5 has 4G LTE connectivity, a must-have feature for a high-end smartphone these days. It uses a single LTE chip (rather than two) for voice and data, an engineering decision that helped reduce the phone's bulk. It also supports more global cellular networks, including HSPA, HSPA+, and DC-HSDPA. Wi-Fi got a spec bump too. The iPhone 5 supports dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) 802.11n wireless with a theoretical maximum speed of 150 Mbps.

re: iPhone 5: 10 Best Features
It is a mediocre attempt at something new.... as you say
It will be interesting to see if new apple products get banned for import to the US.
HTC got bit by Apple so I am sure they will respond in kind to Apple.
- Bad place to be when you only release one new phone a year.

It does look like they have tried to make it so it doesnt break all the time like the others but given apples poor industrial design history I am doubtful, time will tell.
