Honestly, no I have not experienced any of those issue with my iPhone 5. I am with AT&T in the USA, in an area with very thorough LTE coverage.
Some of the things you mention sound more like carrier network issues then device issues.
I have not had an iTunes sync fail (I normally sync my iPhone and iPad with iTunes over wifi at least once a week), but every now and then, a backup takes much longer than average, for reasons unclear to me (it seems somewhat random, just every now and then a backup gets very, very slow, but never actually fails for me).
Admittedly, I do not listen to music much on my iPhone at all, so my limited use of music player has not been a problem (I use it much more on my iPad, but even then, mostly to listen to audiobooks, not music). I have never had to restore any iOS device (since iPhone 2) because of a failed sync (always using iTunes in OS X though - I have no experience with iTunes in Windows).
And, my wifi on both my iOS devices has been great. At home they connect at 5Ghz to an 802.11n Netgear WNDR4500 router, but I've also had no issues in hotels, conference centers and other public wifi spots around the country.
If you want some help, I would suggest posting specific questions with details - like your wifi issues, what type of gear are you connecting to at home? Is the problem everywhere or only sometimes?

Most of the problems I noted above now appear to be transient issues or were temporary (still not sold on the talking issue. It seems there are still times when I cut people off or I am cut off in a conversation, but it does not always happen, so it might be my cellphone carrier). I don't use phones much, land or cell so it will take a while to figure out if this is really an ongoing thing.
I did figure out that the range at 5Ghz is extremely poor. I had switched to 5Ghz to improve the airplay capability (my airport expresses are connected to my airport extreme on 5Ghz) from the phone.
I'm now running again on 802.11g and the range is about the same as the 3gs.
Overall the phone appears to be behaving, though I think it suffers from periodic episodes of schizophrenia, quite possibly from ios6.
The music player app especially is really buggy and unreliable... What the UI says the settings are, do not reflect what they actually are. I don't use the loop function and it should have stopped playing my playlist the other day but it decided to loop from the beginning again. When I do use the shuffle, it says the shuffle feature is on and when I reboot it still says it's on, but the order of plays match the original order defined in itunes.
Overall, I consider this question resolved. Thanks for the replies.
