Fey Patron grants Dancing Lights and Minor Illusion as cantrips as well as the Moon Bow which deals 1d8 radiant damage with a ranged spell attack with advantage against Lycanthropes with a range of 100ft (or up to 400ft with disadvantage to your attack roll). Your Moon Bow's damage improves to 2d8 at 5th level, 3d8 at 11th level, and 4d8 at 17th level. Starting at 5th level you may attack multiple targets with your Moon Bow, splitting its damage dice among each target to a minimum of one damage dice per target.

Fey Patron also grants Fey Presence at 1st level and something very similar to the Pact of the Chain at 3rd level.

Fiend Patron grants Acid Splash and Poison Spray as cantrips as well as Fiendish Weapon which allows you to use your action to conjure a weapon composed of hellish flames in your hand. Your Fiendish Weapon deals fire damage equal to 1d8 plus your Charisma modifier with a melee spell attack and its damage improves to 2d8 at 5th level, 3d8 at 11th level, and 4d8 at 17th level. Starting at 5th level your Fiendish Weapon ignores resistance to fire?

Fiend Patron also grants Dark One's Blessing at 1st level and something kind of like Pact of the Blade / Weapon Bond at 3rd level.

At 3rd level, the Fiend Patron allows you to perform a ritual over the course of a short rest to convert a magic weapon you hold into your Fiendish Weapon, which, upon completion of the ritual, is shunted into an extradimensional space and reappears in your hand whenever you would create your Fiendish Weapon thereafter. A magical weapon converted in this way can deal its normal damage or fire damage, at your choice, and when you are 5th level and higher and use the Attack action you may make up to two attacks with a magical weapon converted in this way. You may use a magical weapon converted in this way as an arcane focus for your Pact Magic spells. You can break this bond with a magic weapon by performing a similar ritual over the course of another short rest.

Great Old One Patron grants Friends and Thaumaturgy as cantrips as well as Psionic Blast which deals 1d10 psychic damage to a creature within 60ft (Charisma save vs your spell save DC negates). Your Psionic Blast's damage improves to 2d10 at 5th level, 3d10 at 11th level, and 4d10 at 17th level. Starting at 5th level, a creature suffers half damage on a successful Charisma save, rather than none.

Great Old One also grants telepathy at 1st level, as normal, and something very similar to the Pact of the Tome at 3rd level.
