Well, Desktop widgets will surely make you feel at the home if you are a newbie in LINUX World, migrated from windows 7 recently.
Certainly the looks really get a beauty and usability enhancement with wide range of desktop widgets available.
Phone Integration:

Ahem! I really wanted this feature always on any OS or distribution, I have used so far. It was previously possible, but we needed third-party software to make this thing possible. But here, it is inbuilt means reliable and snappy outcome is a sure scenario with lower bloats on memory as it's in-built.
You can get text message notifications, silenced music when a call comes (My favorite), and phone can also be used as a remote control.
Better login-screen:

The new login screen brings wide customization freedom plus plasma wallpaper plug-ins like animated wallpapers and slideshows is there to make it extra cheese on the top.
Improved applets:

There are many new other features introduced, we can not cover all of them. You may check more in the announcement post of KDE official, from here.
