    Can I update my iPhone 5 to IOS 7 from IOS 6 without taking any backup?
    Is it better for me or NOT?

    You can do it without a backup but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Backup is for self help only. If you feel like helping yourself when you get iOS 7. Otherwise you will have to download all the apps, photos, songs etc. again.

    Are you able to do an OTA update? Doing that, you won't have to backup the phone...although a backup is always HIGHLY recommended in case something goes wrong.

    I cannot remember doing an OS upgrade where in the process the first thing was doing a backup. Now I ALWAYS do my upgrades tethered to iTunes so I cannot speak for OTA. With that after doing this and if you do the backup if in iTunes simply delete the backup if you don't want it but not recommended and it does not hurt anything.
