    Switching from the 4/4S to the 5? I hear so many ppl say the 5 isn't a huge upgrade from the 4/4S. So do you regret upgrading to the 5?

    Going from the 4 to the 5 was a huge upgrade to me IMO. I do t regret it one bit. LTE is the biggest surprise to me, didn't think it would be this fast. No regrets and extremely happy

    No regrets whatsoever. LTE is FANTASTIC. I don't miss the 4s straining with big pages.

    No regrets here either. I even tried out one of the popular Samsung phones and came right back to my iPhone 5. Other than just looking and feeling fantastic, I'm a complete believer in the importance of a phone being usable one-handed. Most Android phones are just far too big.

    iOS also runs circles around Android (still) in terms of overall smoothness and app quality.

    As for the upgrade from the 4S, definitely no regrets there. The 4S seems like a little baby's toy now!

    I upgraded from my iPhone 4 to 5, then regretted it and switched to android. Simply because the bigger screen and software features appealed to me more than a simple OS + Stability. Android has come a long way in the stability and non-lagginess department so that really made me switch. Sometimes I do miss the super light one hand iPhone 5 though, but that's just because it was so dang light it blew my mind when I had it haha.

    No regrets here either. I agree with the list above plus the sound volume is louder and the battery life is great.

    In the beginning I didn't want to upgrade to the 5 from the 4S knowing there isn't that much difference. But then I decided to upgrade, and oh boy its awesome! Did not regret it at all.

    It all depends on the person. I love my 5, and would never want to go back to a 4 or 4s. My sister upgraded the same day I did and had me sell it for her after a month because she didn't find it a big upgrade from the 4S and she took the profit and bought an ipad. I guess it's really only a matter of personal opinion.

    None at all!! I've been using LTE Android devices since inception and getting rid of my Galaxy Nexus for a 4S it was painful going back to 3G till the 5 came out.

    I love the design of the 5 so much I had forgotten how sexy the design was compared to every Android phone I had owned.

    I don't have any regrets, but since LTE is not available in my area, I don't see much of a difference.

    I'll never understand how others have said there is virtually no difference between the 4S and the 5. Unless they are trying to maintain a state of denial for justifying their decision not to upgrade. I have zero remorse. As others have said, the LTE is excellent, the extra 1/2 inch of screen real estate is beneficial, it is much lighter, heck I even love the new lightning cable vs the old one. It is truly noticable when I use my daughter's iphone 4 for something. I wouldn't go back unless forced to.

    Edit: As Clara mentioned, if you do not live in an LTE equipped area, that does indeed remove one of the greatest upgrades to the device. However, even still I think the improvements to nearly every facet of the device cause it to be an excellent upgrade over the 4S.

    100% agree...if this phone didn't have LTE it would certainly leave off one of it's shining features, but everything else improved on this phone over the 4S would still leave me completely satisfied and with no regrets.

    For me going from the 4 to the 5 was huge. Now I can get the luxury of Siri and other features that the 4 did not have with the update. I do not have any regrets what-so-ever.

    I just picked mine up today. I looked at some android phones but I have been down that road and kept coming back to iPhone so I saved the hassle and bought a black/slate 32gb iPhone 5. Coming from the 4 it's a huge upgrade. My wife and daughter got the iPhone 4S last month and that was a nice bump from the 4 but the 5 is really big. The LTE is great but even on wifi it's so much faster. Everything is just super quick. I'm still playing but so far I'm happy and have no regrets.

    Made the jump from 4S to 5 on 12/19 and I have 0 regrets thus far. The larger screen is cool and all but that LTE and lighter feel just do it for me.

    Made the jump from blackberry to my first iphone, which was the iPhone 5... It's just amazing! Needed one to go along with my iPad;-)

    Although I'm not counting RIM out, BB10 will give Apple and Android big competition.
