Superior Hardware?

I'm excluding the Lumia 920, because it's not out yet with no release date in sight, and nobody has had extensive hands-on with the full phone beyond limited demos.

So having a Galaxy S3, an HTC One X, and an iPhone 5 in front of me, let's compare and see who comes out on top:

Battery life: iPhone 5
Responsiveness / Processor Performance for HTML5/JS: iPhone 5 (this is the only cross-platform measure I have as a dev that relates in a meaningful way to the end user, where the iPhone 5 is currently 5-6 times the framerate of the Galaxy S3 and One X in terms of FPS animation.)
Weight iPhone 5
Thickness iPhone 5
Screen Color Accuracy/Quality iPhone 5 (see Gizmodo's article on ranking the screen of the 5 with the Galaxy S3.

SO yeah, if you're not into battery life, responsiveness, web page rendering times, the device thickness/weight, or the quality of the screen, yeah, the iPhone 5 is clearly inferior. Rolling Eyes
