Staying with my iPhone 5s. What will I miss out if I don't get the 6?
After installing IOS 8 and pretty happy with it I think I will keep my 5S for another year and wait for the 6S.
What will I be missing out if I don't get the 6..."not much". Thinner phone, larger screen and NFC and I am not sure the processor will be that much faster and oh yes the 6 or 6S will have a HD display. Untill i walk into a Bestbuy or Apple store who knows I might change my mind but right now hmmmmm no. What's your thoughts and opinion on this?

I'm out of that phase where I NEED a new phone yearly.
I love the S models- when you upgrade on the S cycles you get your money's worth:
1) new design
2) upgrades of the regular iPhone model
3) upgrades of the iPhone S models
4) new features of two iOS versions

I'd really love to get the 6 plus but I just can't justify spending the money. I still love the design of the 5s more than any other phone out there. It also works very well. Perhaps if I had a lot of disposable income I would do it, but I would still miss my 5s. I will wait until the 6s plus.

Went to the apple store yesterday the 6 is a cool size not too big not too small and the plus is great but I love my 5s I could wait till May of next year to upgrade but the 6s plus will have more features better processor speed and everything I'm going to hold on be patient and wait

Was at the Bestbuy store yesterday close to closing time that way nobody stands behind to check the phone 6 and rush me but anyway I checked it out and was not impressed and decided to stick with my iphone 5s which still looks like new. The iphone 6 is really not that much bigger and i don't need NFC and the 5S display is still gorgeous and the processor speed is slightly slower than the iphone 6 which makes me believe that when the 6S comes out there will be many hardware changes and that makes sense. I am up for a new phone and unfortunately the 6 did not impress me at all.

The only thing immediate is the NFC ApplePay! You have to buy the Watch to use it with the 5S which comes out in April. Otherwise, it will take two-three years to full use the Wi-Fi 802.11ac in public and LTE 4 will take that long or longer. So, you can use the 5S for a good three years; if you do not upgrade the iOS every year! I am not going to upgrade to iOS8 until much later on this year or never. I want to have my 5S to remain fast and with no lags. Each upgrade you do; you just slow your mobile device operation just a bit more. After 3 new iOS; it doe run to well. But if you don't upgrade to future iOSes; and you get all the apps now and not upgrade the apps; you will be fine for a long time to come!
