    Default Who loves their 5 even more now??

    I know I sure do! I think the resale will eventually go up on it compared to other models and the fact that there will be fewer iPhone 5 models our there compared to all other models is pretty cool too!

    I'm not one to emote over inanimate objects... my 5 has served me well, and when it no longer does, I'll replace it with a 5S...

    Yep, or replace it with whatever comes after the 5S...

    I loved my iPhone 5 to begin with, but with iOS 7. It feels like a new phone and runs great.

    I can't justify upgrading to the 5s from the 5. I will just wait until next year for the 6

    I will be keeping my 5. Nothing this time around is anything special to me. I can hold off until the 6 comes out.

    I just recently upgraded to the iPhone 5 and was a little worried about buyers remorse with the impending unveil of the new phones. I am not experiencing this at all. I am perfectly content with my 5 and looking forward to the 6 next year.

    I am not going to be upgrading to a 5s seeing as it's not that much of an upgrade to the 5.

    I'm loving my iP5! No urge whatsoever to go iP5s. Plus I think the 5c is an embarrassing addition to the lineup since it looks like it's for tiny boppers. I won't be surprised of the iP5 stays steady on resale value seeing that many 4 and 4s buyers won't want to pay for a 5s or get the cheap looking 5c which leaves the only option as a iP5.

    I've had my iPhone 5 for several months now when T-Mobile finally got the iPhone 5 and other models for their AWS bands and LTE which floors me on the speeds. Being that mine is so new and the Black/Slate version, it will never be seen again unless you find some retailer with new old stock but then if you're buying retail, the 5S may have the same price.

    It's still very capable and far from being obsolete. Out of all of the iPhones I've owned. I love the 5... Which will soon become a curiosity since it was just swept under the rug.

    Isn't it funny how the upgrade cycle with apple works? Quite a few people with the 5 and are not eligible for an upgrade at this moment don't feel the urge to upgrade. Yet if your a 4S owner and its time for an upgrade this upgrade will knock your socks off compared to the 4S. Seems to me Apple is doing it right, I can't think of any company who would want to have millions of users having buyers remorse so early in an upgrade cycle. I dealt with that when I used Android, should I buy now or wait? And if I bought early I was going to have buyers remorse, if I waited to buy I'd still have buyers remorse when Motorola or HTC one upped the latest and greatest. It was a never ending cycle of phone swapping and general unhappiness with my decision. Since apple has started the whole S series of upgrades, I don't even worry about that too much, except maybe when siri was introduced. Seems like to me there is never a bad time to buy an iphone.

    If you look at it historically, Apple has targeted every other upgrade at the two year target. The 3GS for example targeted the original iPhone buyer, the 4 was really going after the 3G owners, etcetera. While some folks (me included) often just paid full freight and upgraded to the latest and greatest, that really didn't appear to be Apple's strategy.

    Rene's articles on iPhone history recently highlighted this.

    That's one of the great things about getting the update. It makes our year-old phone seem new again. No need right now to upgrade. I think that I will be fine until the iPhone 6 is released. Same with my iPad. I think that I'm going to hold off until the 6s come out.

    I am on a Verizon employee account with a $100 discount on phones. I was debating between the 32GB white 5 or the 16GB Silver 5s. I decided on the 5 over the 5s because storage is big for me and i couldn't justify upgrading. The 5s is an amazing phone but i currently have a 16GB black 5 and the upgrade is minor. Fingerprint tech is nice but i don't mind waiting for version 2 in the iPhone 6 after it's been refined and works out the kinks i'm sure it will have. Also, the camera upgrade is minor and not very important to me as i will be buying the sony QX10 lens, which will blow any phone camera away. I doubt battery will be improved that much and i use a mophie juice pack plus with 120% battery. So all in all, based on MY needs. The 5 was a safer bet.

    I have lived this device since my purchase on release day. With the new iOS coming next week, the joy of possibly feeling that it will be a "new" phone is awesome.

    I am looking forward to the new iOS and the new found love, if I could love this phone anymore than I already do.

    I'm not upgrading. Sticking with my 5. For the first time though, I recently ordered an Elago glide case. I've never had a case on any phone. New territory for me. Figured I better protect it if I'm waiting for the 6. I really like it now though, it's perfectly beat up with silver spots on the back from me rubbing it and spinning it on desktops. It looks boss.

    Yes, well... I have the 5. I also had the iPad 3- with retina and old-school 18-pin port, discontinued when the other iPad 3 -- the New iPad came out. What should have become the iPad, Limited Edition (the only way to have retina iPad WITHOUT changing all your cords and docks...) didn't. Instead, it went for $300-ish bucks on Glyde. It would be wonderful if values went up. However, its those of us who are dorky enough to see the value who also are the ones to consider something shiny and new...whereas those who didn't buy one before are unlikely to pay *more* for a used 5 when they can get something new for similar price- or lower.
