The 5 is my first iPhone, and on Verizon I've been very impressed with the "phone" component. I don't know if it's the extra noise cancelling work they did or what, but calls are clear, loud and static free on both ends. Much better reception than my older phones on TMo.
Exactly. The 4s was a big improvement, but the new 5 out classes it. I think the 2 new antenna help.
