    If you already did not own your iphone 5S, would you go ahead and buy one now? Even though it's been around for 9 months?. Would you still buy the 5s or would you give the 5c a try?

    I would happily buy an iPhone 5S now. I am not interested in the 5C at all.

    In fact, I am trying to purchase a used 5s but my preferred store doesn't have any.

    In my opinion the 5s is a two year release device

    If it was released this September it would still be cutting edge

    Considering that the iPhone 6 is around the corner I personally would hold off on the 5s.

    I would probably wait for the next iPhone and see what that has to offer. If for some reason I don't like what I see (which I doubt), I could always get the 5s at that point.

    I'd buy one if I couldn't hold out until the new one was released

    Other than the still rumored larger screen, I don't see the iPhone 6 with much more than what the 5s offers. Both will have iOS 8. So if the 4" screen suits your needs, then the 5s might be a great way to go now. Prices continue to drop. Carriers are offering great deals.

    I just bought mine 4 days ago as I read the rumors on the 6 and other than screen size I don't see a great advantage to the 6. Both will get ios 8 so I bought the 5s and am very satisfied with it.

    Awesome and good luck. My wife wants to keep her 5C. She likes the size.

    Liking it? I may do the same, then spend my iP6 money on an iPad. Still deciding!

    Return it! Get another one. There's something not right with that. Could mean bigger problems down the road.

    Let's hope it started resetting itself and Touch ID is a hit n miss hope they do it

    I just got it (not bought, though) and it has blown me out of the water so far.
    It certainly feels like a modern phone in everyday use, compared to my previous phones.

    The screen resolution might give away it's age, but even then probably only when you compare it side by side with newer phones with the same screen size.
    Other than that, the iPhone 5s is still amazingly fast and is definitely worth buying in my opinion.

    And with the iPhone 6 being larger (right?) the 5s might even remain popular as a new phone.
