    I am using iPhone 5 for 2 years and its absolutely great, just that the battery life sucks (I am eligible for battery replacement program). I got good offer for my iPhone 5 (60% of the price). Now i am stuck thinking if i should go ahead and buy iPhone 6 (when it launches) or hang on with iPhone 5 for another year.

    Please post your suggestions and make my life easier

    My suggestion is get it replaced and then fi you upgrade, resale will bump up a bit as it has a new battery

    Surely ill get it replaced and then sell or tell the buyer about it and get better price. One question is Apple will replace only the battery right (not the complete phone) ?

    You should waited till the iPhone gets announced but if you have sold it, I hope you can get a hold of the new phone fast.

    I went to a apple certified repair center and even though the serial # of my phone put me in the range of qualifying for a new battery they ran a diagnosis on my battery and said nothing was wrong it and that apple would not replace it since it passed. So just because your serial # is on the list so to speak they still will test your battery and then make the decision

    I would upgrade even if I weren't the tech geek that I am. There will be enough added functionality to justify it.

    I din't know that but I am sure my iPhone has a battery problem as I had to charge it 2 to 3 times a day. Secondly my phone condition was too good so the buyer was happy. Hopefully they will change the battery for him.

    My iPhone too was working perfectly fine and had no issues except the battery life. Still the iPhone 6 has caught my mind and I just jumped to a decision. lol

    Did you check to see if your iPhone 5 is eligible for the free battery replacement?
    Since you're asking for advice, I'd get the battery replaced if it's free, sell the 5, and then get yourself a brand new iPhone 6.

    If you like the 5 stick with it. Get a replacement battery and you'll be good to go. Plus usually the s line works out any bugs/hardware issues the version before it had
