Plasma 5 does little in showing that the framework is awesome as there are many components to it that isn't utilized.
Overall I think the Breeze Icons are pretty cool but am really looking forward to Plasma 5.2 and onward when it's at feature comparison with KDE4. Right now, I'm digging it though (few bugs with Activities etc).
I do like the desktop wallpaper selector a whole lot more though.
