    For those of you that 'switched' to an iPhone 5 from either an iPhone 4 or 4s, besides the internal upgrades, was the 'switch' worth it?

    Just curious and everyone's thoughts.

    Go...

    I had the 4s and while I miss my jailbreak, the extra battery and reception in my house was worth it.

    Had a 4/4s and now 5. Lte was the reason I changed now and it's amazing! The speed of the camera is almost instant and the extra screen area is perfect. A great upgrade all around!

    Bigger screen is worth it IMO.

    Came from a 4S (which my younger son has now) and the bigger screen, speed, thinness and lightness make it all worth it for me. I used my older son's 4 the other day and I didn't say anything to him but it was miserable now that I am used to the 5! The 5 is a great iPhone no matter what you are using now...

    Worth it but not overwhelming so. The big screen is the biggest feature imo. Battery life is better - hard to believe since the 4S was pretty good. The thinness and lightweight are nice, but they weren't issues on the 4S.

    I guess if I was in an LTE area I'd be more stoked. But don't get me wrong - I live my 5 and would be hard to go back to a 4S.

    I went back to a 3GS after a 4. THAT was painful. Going from a 5 to a 4S isn't as bad as that.

    Though bad circumstances forced me off if my 4s, I cant believe that I was actually gonna pass up the five initially! LZE is super fast, screen size is just right, siri integration rocks, the camera speed is instantaneous, and overall just a very zexy phone!

    Huge difference from the 4. So fast!!! Nicer screen, Siri, turn by turn directions. It was a no brainer for me.

    My son wanted my 4S(the 5 was too light for him) so I got to upgrade to the 5 & I haven't looked back. The best feature for me is the screen size. It's not the largest but I came from Android so I definitely needed something larger than 3.5".

    I came from the 4 and the change is night and day. Super fast loading apps, camera and websites. Apps that normally took 5 seconds to load now load instantly. Quality of photos and video was the main reason I upgraded too. I still have the 4 for my daughters Ipod and whenever I use it I feel like I picked up a brick its so heavy.

    upgraded from 4S to i5. better bigger screen. safari experience its better because of the extra real estate. overal experience is faster. opening apps/closing/app switching. camera is faster too. instagram/facebook/twitter totally look better now with extra content because of the taller screen. that extra half inch feels bigger when you are using it and getting used to it. the phone actually feels wider and screen size is perfect. im very satisfied. i like it being thinner and lighter. it just feels great holding it. overall a great design and looks are awesome.

    I upgraded from the 4S and when I picked it up to take pics of it the other day for my ebay listing, it felt heavy and fat compared to the 5, and the blazing fastness of the 5 via the hardware with the camera app or just the boot cycle or whatever, mixed in with the hue of the display on the 5 compared to a 4S was night and day... PLUS LTE.... it's a huge upgrade IMO, it'd be painful for me to go back to the 4S even tho it's a stellar device... the 5 is a big upgrade over the 4S just not huge lol

    My wife upgraded from 4S to 5 mostly for the bigger screen and LTE. She is also impressed with the speed and weight.

    Coming from a 4s owner I feel that's worth it, altough I'm the kind of guy who likes to have the newest stuff. But I love the feel of it in my hand compare to the 4s.

    From the 4 to the 5 it's a very noticeable upgrade, even the weight ( or lack there of ) is ridiculously noticeable and has a better feel in my pocket ( though I do find myself check to see if it's actually there more often LOL ).

    My wife is in absolute love with her 5 and wouldn't go back to a 4 or 4S if she were paid ( unless it was a substantial sum of money to where she could then go buy herself a 5 again and shoes, a purse and outfit to match ).

    I went from a 8 gb iPhone 4 to a 16 gb iPhone 5. My poor phone was on its last little leg anyways, it was time to upgrade and the speed is what sold me. I didnt realize what I was getting into until I had my phone though. The speed is amazing. The battery is eh about the same as my iPhone 4 bc I leave more of the extra stuff on (location services and wifi) mainly. I also had the habit of turning off the 3g bc really I didnt use the phone off wifi much. Now that I dont have wifi at home its been quite the lifesaver!

    It almost seems imperative to upgrade

    I do have LTE in my area and would like to see how fast it is as compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3...

    My 4S had become real slow and it would respring constantly. Even when the jailbreak was taken off. So yes my switch was well worth it. Plus I've been waiting for lte for a while. My iPad had it but not my phone (O_O). That was a problem!
