    If you can wait until September to get the iPhone 6, then, wait. Otherwise, why not just get the 5S?

    I like my 5s. I think it's a really great device. The 6 will probably be good too but I'm anticipating a bigger screen. It would be a bad thing for me but that might be a good thing for you....

    The 5s is a really good phone, but it's up to what you want.

    The S iPhones are an easy recommendation. The iPhone 5s is refined, works great and if tradition continues, it's going to have four years of software updates. S versions also tend to perform better with software updates.


    Keep in mind the iPhone 6 will be a first generation device. They tend to have certain flaws that get fixed in the next generation. I always recommend the S versions for that.

    5S is a damn good device...has a lot of features and will remain relevant for quite a while. If you need something now, I would say go for it...because you still have about 7-8 months before a new iPhone variant hits the market.

    If you can stand to wait until September, wait. iPhone 6 could be mind-blowing.

    The 5S is one hell of a good device to pass up especially with what I feel to be the best OS to date along with tremendous battery life. Yes I am biased and will be that way for the next 2 years of my contract but I don't mind. Play with it in a store and judge for yourself and take your time with it.

    Since you were using 4s before, my suggestion is to go for the 5s. It will be a big change for you.

    I vote 5s as well I just switched from a galaxy s3 and the smaller screen is a blessing to me lol I wanted to go ahead and get the 5s cause I didn't want a larger screen. I hope the keep the 4" screen or close to it for a long time.

    For me, a 7 to 8 month wait would be a long time. I suggest getting the 5s now and ENJOY....SMILE

    I'd go big and get the 64gb 5s, that way if you want the 6 when it comes out (hopefully you keep the 5s in great condition) you can trade it in and pay hardly anything for the 6. But if you don't like the 6 you'll have a great phone with tons of storage that should keep you happy til the next release or possibly even your full contract. I got the space gray 64gb, I LOVE IT, and I can honestly say that if I don't like the design of the 6, i'll definitely be happy with my 5s until either the next iPhone(or android if anything worth it comes out) or until my contract ends....

    I'd get it. It was a huge upgrade from my 4S. I also like being on the "S" two-year rotation for phones. The first year bugs may be introduced that are corrected with updated hardware in the S model. I skipped both the 4 and 5 and have been nothing but happy.

    You seem to need an upgrade now, so waiting would really be pointless IMO. Get the 5s.

    Plus the next iPhone may come only in the second half of the year, which is a long long time.

    I could not bear going 7 months without an iPhone. How old is the 4S? Can't you get a 5s now and give it to your wife when the new one comes out? Then sell the 4S. That's what I do. I got $235 for my 2-year old 4S when I got the 5s.

    What I would suggest you do is upgrade to the 5S than a month before the new iPhone is announced, sell the iPhone 5S at about 500-600 and than buy the 6 at full retail price. That's what I'm planning on doing with my AT&T 32 GB 5S gold in August. I'll be phone less for a month but it'll be worth it.
