Interesting video. The file transfer was completed in 45.2 seconds vs 49.7 seconds (about 9% faster).
I wondered whether the fact that the iPhone 5's A6 processor has twice the speed of the iPhone 4S's A5 chip would also contribute to that increase in file transfer speed. (Probably not, I guess, on reflection.)
