I'm surprised with these "new features". They've been on Android for quite some time now and I can't imagine not having them, prior iOS6. Anyway, I don't see the iPhone 5 as anything special, I'm not an Apple person. But really, I can't see myself using an iPhone, even though I would like to see myself having one, I guess I prefer Android OS.
I must say that well done to Apple for the Guided Access feature; maybe it's because it's the only thing not on Android yet, but it's really a great idea. And also the phone is crazy light! I don't like light phones but it's great for people who do. They did a nice job with that.
