Isn't the iPhone 5 leading most if not all of the popular benchmarks? Hell it's even got LTE which apparently isn't a big thing any more.

Apart from screen size that list of android phones are inferior to the iPhone and aren't we all told that its not how big it is but what you do with it?

Not really, Nokia's Lumia 920 does better on most:

* Higher PPI and raw resolution * Better camera * NFC

Benchmarks, the Nokia wins with SunSpider...

Even versus the Galaxy S3, when benchmarked with ICS (though the phone was manufactured after ICS and specifically described as being optimized for Jellybean), the results were a very mixed bag (http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4558580):

iPhone 5 won in Browsermark, lost in GUImark, and Sunspider.

(That whole article was a little frustrating - many problems with the benchmarking, and the conclusion)

Disclosure: I've had an iPhone 4, 4S, iPad 3, which I recently (this weekend) moved away from to the Lumia 920.
