    Years ago you used to be able to just upgrade at a whim, you just wanted the latest thing and that's it. But now you will have to make a decision, and you will have to make sacrifices.

    How many of you will be torn about getting the iPhone with the bigger screen or the iPhone that fits perfectly in your hands? Is anyone willing to keep the iPhone 4S if you don't find the new iPhone to be better?

    I have the iPhone 4 .... And yes, if the new one is as ugly as the leaks suggest, I will just keep it. There is nothing about an elongated iPhone that is appealing to me. Like you said, fits perfectly in the hand.

    I would like to use NFC to make payments and have fast LTE speeds, but not at the cost of the form factor. It is the single most important part of a smartphone for me.

    Why i click on your threads i still don't know. Just out of curiosity, when you decide to make a new thread (besides the obvious "Get a higher post count" logic you seem to focus on), do you actually think about what you're saying or do you just slap some random (See: Illogical) thought down?

    I mean, anyone can upgrade to iOS6, that's the core of the phone. The bigger screens are ugly, not gonna lie. LTE I don't care about. I'm thinking that the smaller dock connector so that the headphone jack can go on the bottom is a good idea, but I've already gotten used to it being on top.

    I've never had to think about if I wanted to upgrade before...

    Headphone jack at bottom is a BAD idea. There are thousands of car docks that use aux connection as well as your 30 pin connection to play audio. Hopefully pretty soon 3rd party accessories are made that take care of this problem.

    Big screens are ugly... how? Its more of the same that you already have. I personally think 4" is perfectly big enough for a person to use without it being too big in your hands.

    When LTE goes mainstream (as it has in my City) you will care about it. $100 bucks that some time before the iPhone 6 releases you will make a post saying "iPhone is just too slow Apple needs to step up their game."

    The two-tone design we've been seeing is kinda hideous, but with a case, it wont be that big of a deal.

    Anyone can upgrade to iOS 5, but they miss the functionality of many features, like Siri for example. You may not use it at all, but for me, who uses is multiple times daily, it makes my life a whole lot easier when I can simply tell my phone to message someone, or call someone, or to remind me about this, or to wake me up in half an hour, rather to have to manually enter in the data myself. You paid money for the phone, use it how it was suppose to be used.

    You're probably looking for the same reason I am... you just can't help yourself... like passing a horrific accident while driving on the freeway. You know you shouldn't look, but it just kind of sucks you in. SMH

    I don't think that the leaked designs of the iPhone 5 are ugly at all. They look really good to me. I would welcome all of the changes and additions to the hardware and software. However, will not be getting the new iPhone 5. I'm not due for an upgrade until next year and by then, the iPhone 5s should be nearing it's launch. The iPhone 4S is such an awesome device that I'm not to concerned about upgrading now anyway.

    You have two choices. Buy a new car or continue to use iPhone 4S and below. It's not going anywhere. Manufacturer's should've known that 30 pin connector was never something permanent anyway, just like the upsold accessories their whole business is built around.

    Big screens are ugly... how? Its more of the same that you already have. I personally think 4" is perfectly big enough for a person to use without it being too big in your hands.
    Every concept photo has been unremarkable. A bigger screen might be better but they have to do it right.

    Whenever that happens but right now it's useless as it is.

    Upgrading isn't as simple of a choice as it once was. We'll be torn.

    iOS6 isn't touting any new features that are going to require a different phone. So, now we have some leg room.

    We'll never know until we get a small semblance of where Apple is going with the new line.

    edit: Oh, and LTE is just an excuse for carriers to make you pay more for service.

    then stick with the 4s. Who wouldnt want the latest tech especially if it ends up like the mock ups it still will be easily held in one hand hell it was only 10mm increase in size. Another great thread by the one and only motoleo /s

    No you will be the only one torn. Clearly you haven't read any of the articles saying how the iphone 5 is already having more demand than the 4s did( they did a bunch of surveys) ChangeWave: Apple iPhone 5 'biggest demand yet', Samsung also shines | Computerworld Blogs

    No. Say there's only one or two people posting in a forum, it's going to look like spam even though it isn't. I've seen this before. But I don't know why you and a few other people spam though. :/

    you seen this before? where? and can you go back to there, please. i'd rather stare at the same old boring threads all day long than come across something you post due to its redundancy

    you do not really talk with people. you just keep repeating the same **** over and over
