    Hey guys and girls, I'm currently using a Galaxy S3 but I might be getting a job working for another cell phone carrier in the next month. If I get a phone on their network I get $30 off my bill every month. Do you guys think the iPhone 5s is still worth it?

    I have recently come back to the 5S and I have to say that I have fallen in love with this device all over again. This time it is naked and I just love it.

    Love my iPhone 5s. Know the 6 will be excellent. My wife will get that while I probably wait for the 6s.

    If you want the latest, wait for the iPhone 6. If you want it right now, get the 5S.

    Another yes. I love this form factor so I'm definitely sticking with the 5s as long as it holds up. I'm still hoping that they keep the 4 inch around honestly. Or at least have a variation of it if they go with a bigger screen

    IMO, that ship has sailed. Right now, its no mans time for Apple products. Too long since the last one, and too long till the new one.

    But thats just me. When I pick up a gadget I always get it when its brand new, thus I maximize my time with it while it is the latest and greatest

    If you have no choice it's a great buy but if you can stick it out until September for the iPhone 6, I would definitely do that.

    I suggested to my brother when he asked me this the other day. He has an iPhone 4S that's on it's last leg and wanted to know if he should use his upgrade now or wait. I told him to buy a 5 outright for maybe $300 and when the iPhone 6 comes he can sell it and use the money towards the upgrade. He'll be spending that much on an upgrade anyway.

    My philosophy is that if you want a phone bad enough, buy it. If you don't want it anymore, sell it/give it away. Don't let yourself be pressured by society or any other factors. It's never too late or too early to get a device. We buy them to enjoy them.

    Being concerned over the timing would take away the fun for me. So I just get it if I want it bad enough.

    I'm very fortunate I can do this. It's why I work in the cellphone industry. Everyone makes a decision that benefits themselves right? =]

    It is not worth it. All iphones do the same thing, besides you have a galaxy s 3 which is better eventually.

    I recently got a 5s this week. After being on Blackberry for a while. I had a 4s a while ago and did not really like it. But the 5s is a different ball game. It's been fantastic and meets my smartphone needs currently. If you think it's going to meet your needs currently as good or better than your current smartphone and you can afford to upgrade, get it. Your needs may change next time you upgrade, but it's about which phone works best for you currently and in the near future.

    I really have no complaints about the 5s. I see why it's one of the best selling phones.

    Too narrow sideways for comfortable typing. And when I had it in mid 2012 the iOS lacked many many of the features the iOS now has. I think back when I had it we were on iOS 4, maybe early 5. There was no app switching, the keyboard felt cramped, just a bunch of features I wanted and saw as common sense weren't there yet for my needs and uses. But the 5s and iOS7 seem to have caught up and really work out to an impressive and relatively solid mobile experience for my needs now.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the keyboard size exactly the same as it has always been, even in landscape mode? And I thought that the app switcher came with the iPhone 4. Again I could be wrong. And I don't want to sound contrary.
