My thoughts on iPhone 5!
Okies it might just be me but is there really any need for an iPhone 5, if your an iPhone 4 user like me with the iOS 5 coming out it will give the iPhone 4 all it needs.
My advice for iPhone users on 3G & 3GS is just get the iPhone 4.
I don't know what would make
The iPhone 4 better we don't need a camera update, the iPhone 4 is fast, smooth and flawless, so Evan if iPhone 5 comes out will it really be worth the upgrade??

Speed. Things could be faster. A5, HSPA+
Regardless there's the fact you can sell iphone 4 for more than the upgrade cost of the iphone 5.
I can guess one (ok..two) feature that will be unique to iphone 5 using A5 chip. That's hdmi mirroring and airplay mirroring. Anyone guess anymore iphone 5 only stuff?
I'll take another stab and say Photobooth, 1080p video (maybe), and widgets. Possibly a theme store and ability to theme to iphone 5. My thinking comes from looking at ipad 2 with A5 and also Apple's theme of copying some popular stuff this year (which is great, no bashing here). So you look and think what else can they bring in that might need more processing or new hardware? Voice control? Wireless charging dock similar to Touchstone?
That's enough to get the hordes in lines..

I agree, dual core chip would be worth it for me alone!! Not saying the i4 is a slouch, not at all but look at the performance improvements from iPad 1 to iPad 2! If you're happy with your i4 then keep it! I am happy with my 3GS but have full intensions of getting the 5! Curious to see what other bells & whistles they add!

Speed, and am I the only person who hasn't forgotten about the green tinge that appears in the middle of indoor photos? It's on all iPhone 4s and Apple hasn't even acknowledged it.
Oh yeah and I'd like a better antenna. It's annoying when I hold my iPhone in my left hand and can't receive a text. :/

Dual core for sure. Perhaps a bigger screen. Maybe have BOTH 3.5" AND A 4" or something. Both offer the same features. The screen size would be the only diference.
I hope they keep the design of the iphone 4 around for a while. It is nice. Then again I like the idea of a curved screen. (like the 5th gen nano or the HTC sensation/Nexus 4G)

I just got a iPhone 4.
Apple probably has some "one more thing" with iOS 5 thats exclusive to the iPhone 5. But is it worth $700? Probably not. LTE? I have an unlimited 3G data plan and it's not deployed enough to make it worth my while. NFC? I live in a simple city, not some huge metropolis like NYC where stores are willing to deploy NFC. Bigger screen? Greatly appreciated but I'm not paying $700 to upgrade from a 3.5" to 3.7" or 4" screen. Dual-core? Nice, but not worth it to me yet.
Now if I have a 3GS or older iPhone, then yes these features are worth it.

I'm with Jello and oNLy...I have a 3Gs and can't wait for iPhone5!! 4 is good but 5 should have MOST, if not all of the features and enhancements that everyone has been whining, I mean hoping that Apple would incorporate into the next iOS release. We shall see, and I am stoked to see the released version after all of these projections about the new OS.

As far as what the new phone would bring to the table that YOU don't need...that's strictly a personal preference...maybe the iPhone 4 isn't as fast as some would like, or compared to some of the brand new phones hitting the market...i know i would love an even better camera, so to me, a new camera is totally a great new feature worthy of consideration.
Tech toys have a very short life...especially with phones, if you're still using your 3GS, you're basically playing with a dinosaur when it comes to tech toy age...not to say it is or isn't capable of being a great phone still, it's just getting old in terms of gadgets.
It's like most cars...every year or so they'll refresh them and every 3-4 years they'll redesign them. Is it a dire necessity within the market? Usually not...but people want new stuff, so the need for the company to do so is undeniably there.

So Bloomberg, which has been fairly accurate and truthful in years past with iPhone news, has basically said that this phone will be chalk full of new features on TOP of being majorly redesigned physically...and that we'll see it in early September. This is pretty exciting because they typically don't release such definite information if they don't have proof...like with the iPhone 4 last year when they reported it would have a glass casing and people were like riiiiiiiiiiggggghhhht...ignored it, and then sure enough, we had a glass iPhone 4.

I'm excited for the iPhone 5, but I'm gonna sit this one out. I'm happy with my unicorn- I got the white iPhone 4 when it came out and it's got this mystique about it since it took forever to come out.
