Does anyone know if the "iPhone 5" is really a whole lot different and/or better than my iPhone 3G?

I've heard from all angles that the iPhone 5 isn't as great as the commercials say they are. And that there are very few changes. But, i did hear that it has a whole lot less bugs in them. My iPhone 3G (and whoever also has a smart iPhone as well), works just like my computer (which is a good computer), where as I don't even need a disc drive because everything you want is now just about down loadible. Thus, they say that the "iPhone 5" is one that you don't have to jailbreak. I need your opinions about the iPhone 5 before I might purchase it. Thanks, M
