    Default Get the iPhone 5S or keep the 5?

    I really like my iPhone 5. But really like the touch id on the iPhone 5s. I know the iPhone 6 and 6+ just came out, but really not interested in the bigger phone. To me personally, too much hype.

    I have an upgrade with VZW. Should I stay with my iPhone 5 or upgrade to the iPhone 5S? VZW has some great deals on iPhones right now!!

    Thanks

    Go with the iPhone 5s if it won't hurt your wallet. In deed the Touch ID is one awesome security thing.

    If the choice is stay with your iPhone 5 or get an iPhone 5s, I would go with the 5s. Good luck.

    The difference in the 6 & 5s size isn't that great of a difference to me but since you have your heart set on the 5s, it's a great phone! I don't think I could go back to using a phone without Touch ID, I love it.

    Get the 5s. You just said you don't want a bigger phone. If you have the opportunity to upgrade use it. The Touch ID will make life sweeter, especially for app purchases.

    I also say grab a 5s since you've got an upgrade waiting, and since you're not interested in the bigger iPhone. Even though it's officially not the newest one anymore, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the 5s.

    I would say get the iPhone 5s because it's going to be much cheaper come September 19th.

    Another recommendation for the 5s. It'll be great for another year at least, maybe even two.

    If it were me, I would go with the 6 you'll get the same features as the 5s plus more. Size you'll adjust fine as mentioned not to big of a difference.

    If you really think the 6 is too large, get a 64 GB 5s while you can -- this is your last change to. (Over the next year, the 32 GB 5s will be available, of course.)

    But if you just sort of prefer one-handed use, wait and have a look at the 6 when it is released. You may find it is a nice size after all.

    Also, you'll be able to get a larger capacity 5S for the same price as a base model 5S was before the 6.
