    Last June I got my iPhone 4 because Blackberry & Android didn't do it for me. I really like my 4 but it lacks Siri & 16 GB just isn't enough. I knew that the 5 would come out this year & when it was announced it had everything I was looking for! Siri, bigger screen, 4G LTE, enough said! I got the 32 GB because I expect to keep the 5 at least until the next 3 generation iPhones come out. I plan on being with my iPhone 5 for a long time! Hurry up Friday!

    Bigger screen.
    Processor.
    LTE, but I don't think we're getting it until sometime next year.

    To be honest, I'm hard pressed to think of any more reasons why I'm upgrading.

    1. Because I'm compulsive
    2. Because a little bigger screen is all I ever wanted more on an iPhone since the 4.
    3. Redesign is beautiful - being thinner and lighter is a plus I certainly won't dislike.
    4. Faster... though the 4S was quite enough in any aspect of its use, I think 1GB of RAM is just gonna give the 5 that instant response in animation that's gonna be awesome on iOS...

    Frankly, enumerating reasons why I get it is redundant. What I really have to offer is this : turn this the other side. Give me a single reason why I should NOT get it if I can?

    LOL, that's gotta be wayyy better than standing in line at a store.

    I'm afraid to ask what "budding meat" is. Will it scare off the FedEx driver??

    I am looking forward to the faster processor and larger screen. Don't think AT&T will have LTE in my area for a while but I am perfectly happy with my current connection speeds.

    1.) Form Factor...it's cosmetically brilliant in my opinion.
    2.) LTE (mainly for tethering)
    3.) Improved on a camera that (to me) was already perfect.
