    So while everyone is busy getting their new iPhone 6, I got my brand new iPhone 5S in gold color. I'm so happy with this device. I was using the iPhone 4S from past two years. Sold it off and bought the iPhone 5 in white. After a week with it, I decided to order a brand new iPhone 5S in gold color. The phone is super fast. And touch ID is amazing. I'm loving everything about this phone. I refused to upgrade to the iPhone 6 because of its shape and size and these #Bendgate issues. I prefer the design of the 5S over the iPhone 6 but thats just my personal opinion. I hope you guys are enjoying your iPhones as much as I am. Cheers!

    I had the 5S but upgraded and gave the 5S to my wife. I sure have thought about returning to the 5S, especially at first. However I have gotten used to the size (biggest complaint at first) and now I love it. The biggest factor that keep me from going back was the battery. I feel that I am getting much better battery life in the 6 than I did with the 5S.

    Enjoy it though. It's a tremendous device!

    I got my 5s a couple of months ago, knowing that the 6 (or whatever they were going to call it at that time) was coming out in September. I'm always about one model behind with Apple, and I am ok with that. When my upgrade comes next year, I will then decide whether to go with a 6 or wait for the "s" version.

    I love the 5s, and although the 6 looks too big to me...I know I would get used to it pretty quickly.

    Enjoy your 5s!

    that is the one thing i think apple has to confront is their battery life. Other platforms have had much better battery life in recent years. That is one reason I left apple...although slowly making my way back...was the battery life. We should not have to turn everything off to make it 18 plus hours like I can with a note 2 or blackberry Z30.

    That being said i also just purchased another 5s for my wife and am thinking its time to return to the apple ecosystem...which although closed is amazing for what it does and the 5s is still an amazing phone.

    Enjoy it...I am sure you will.

    Extremely happy with my 5s. Very easy to use with one hand and very responsive to commands. Only difference i saw was a larger screen so upgrade was out of question.

    I traded in my 4S for a 5S on the Friday before Labor Day, as VZW was running a 50% off special. A 32g 5S ran me $149, plus I got $100 for the 4S. The extra capacity was what I needed as my 4S had about 1/2 gig of free space left, as well I was not willing to spend $300 on a similar capacity 6.

    My wife traded up to the 16g 6 on the free trade deal, but I can honestly say I hate the size of the 6 and am glad I went to the 5S, fits my hand better.

    I did too. I've been using the iPhone 5 for the past 1 half years but it was slowly starting to die (power button issues that would randomly appear and go away) so I needed an upgrade ASAP before the phone actually craps out on me. Decided with the 5S because it was much cheaper factory unlocked, I don't care about the bigger screen, I don't care about more pixels, don't care bout slightly better camera, and the iPhone 6 didn't look too appealing for me. Really love touch ID on the 5s and it runs very smooth compared to my 5 on IOS 8.0.2. Most likely will upgrade then the 6s comes out because the S series is when apple usually doesn't screw up.

    I got my 5s about... I dunno... 3 months ago, knowing full well that if I waited I could get a brand spanking new iPhone 6. I'd heard all the rumors about bigger screen and all, but I decided to plop down for the 5s anyway. The 5s is a good device that works well.

    While I would really like an iPhone 6, I'm fully content to hang with my 5s until I'm due for upgrade.

    I am getting myself a 5s too. For some reason I'm not too fond of the 6's design. So excited!

    Yeh I still have my 5 and I dont feel like upgrading. I think i am getting tech tired. My iPhone 5 works just fine on iOS8. If I have it next year I imagine iOS9 might run terribly on it, I will then have no choice but to upgrade.

    ConGrats on your new 5s. It's an AWESOME iPhone. I personally like the design of my Gold 5s MUCH better than the design of iPhone 6/6+. I've had mine since 12/4/13, it looks GREAT and iOS 8.0.2 runs GREAT on it. I might get the iPhone 6/6+ (or s) somewhere down the line, but for now I'm totally satisfied with my Gold 5s.
