    I'm sticking with my 5S. This is an amazing device and will be even better with iOS 8. I don't want a larger iPhone.
    I'm still considering upgrading to the 5s if the price is right. Great deals coming. Maybe free on contract. Most likely $49.99. Then buy an iPad mini retina.

    If the keynote satisfies me, I'll go iPhone. If not, I may try something like an LG G3 for a year. I switch off every now and then. The HTC One I had for a while last year was invaluable to me (I had just had major eye surgery), mainly because the stock browser had that really neat text auto-formatting feature which no iPhone browser has had to date.

    I totally relate. I just need something with a bigger screen to see better. It gets really difficult to read a lot of the articles, blogs and even printed text in apps these days. It all looks like washed out light gray. Some I can't read at all unless I can zoom it. It's what the Facetune developer told me was the "Modern Design Sensibilities". I had another word for it, but kept it to myself. He did promise to work with the team to make the app more readable.

    A lot of the new apps designed for iOS 7 seem to be low-contrast affairs. I don't like the trend.

    I'm hopeful about the iPhone 6, but many of the most recent leaks have me feeling nervous that I won't like it. If the protruding camera ring is in fact what we'll see, I'll be passing on the 6 since that would be a deal breaker for me. I personally feel that would look awful from a design perspective. I'm also not a fan of the bands that we've seen on the back of the 6. Again, I know these are just leaks, but with the announcement only a short time away, I'm fearful these leaks are becoming more accurate. If the iPhone 6 looks like them, I'll probably hang on to my 5S or pick up a G3 or an S5.

    Sadly for me, but I won't be getting the iPhone 6 on launch day unless some miracle happens, as I spent over $3k on my credit card getting my 27in custom built iMac and HK SoundSticks III speakers. Please live the dream for me please.
    I will send you all my ooooooh and ahhhhhhh vibes got you to enjoy with me.

    The only way I would not get this device on launch day is if I can't find a gold 64G. Having experienced last year's inventory problems, I'm a wee bit worried.

    Darn. At least you're gonna get OS X Yosemite! You can live the dream of having an amazing Mac while I live the dream of having an amazing phone
    Already using the public beta on both my new iMac and early 2011 MacBook Pro. Love it!

    I also have something to say about the iPhone 6 as depicted in the video:

    Meh.

    Not digging it that much. Hopefully in person it'll look better.

    Still hoping it'll be like the iPhone 4 situation, where everyone hated the design at first, but then loved it. Maybe that's how the 6 will be, who knows? I can only hope though.

    Honestly, which would you choose(design wise):

    Are you ready and excited for the new upcoming iPhone 6?-image.jpg

    Design wise, the 5/5s. But I don't mind the 6, I just prefer the 5/5s. Actually my face was the 4/4s. Loved the glass back.

    It's going in a case straight out of the box so it really is not an issue.

    My favorite was the 4/4s. I really like my 5s design as well. If this is what the 6 will look like then I'm not excited. But I'm sticking with my 5s anyway.

    Having used a LG G3 for a short while, I cant wait for the 6 to drop. The larger screen is nice once you have it. I realize not everyone feels the same way. But I certainly do ....... the larger screen combined with 1,000s of quality apps will make me more productive.

    I'm not exactly "excited" about it. Looking forward to it, yeah. Excited is pretty extreme. Ready? What's there to be ready for? It's a phone. If the release wasn't for another 2 months I wouldn't really care.

    However, I'm not looking forward to some iWatch being announced and released as I think that it's going to create a whole new generation of people speaking into their wrists which I find to be completely stupid.

    Not excited about the 6, which is strange, but I'm very excited about iOS 8.

    May I'll get excited next Tuesday.

    I don't speak into my Pebble, cause it doesn't support that.

    Nah, I wouldn't. Even if it did, I wouldn't be using the feature for reasons of not looking like a tool.

    Haha same here. I might talk to it as like a cool party trick or something, but using it in the real world would totally be tool-ish. I don't even talk to Siri in public because I think it's kind of weird talking to a phone when you're surrounded by other people
