Yep - another 4S user on the fence. Also had the 3GS previously... The jump from 3GS to 4S was huge - form factor, retina, speed and capacity.

This time around, I personally don't feel that there is enough innovation for the same jump this time around.

My upgrade will be to switch contract to a sim-only deal for 12 months. Wait it out on the 4S, or get a 5 off eBay till the iPhone 6.

I'm on the fence now, after today, but wasn't earlier in the week.

The way networks here in the UK have priced the 5C makes me think the 5S is going to be stupidly more expensive than normal!

Really? It's gonna be more than twice as fast from a processor standpoint, and the camera should be a decent jump from the iphone 4s...

That alone has me interested. I am struggling with the color choice.

With the knowledge, skill, experience and expertise Apple have, they should have been doing better than they have been. They are coasting at the moment, they're being lazy. They shouldn't be competing with a company that makes air conditioners.
You obviously haven't used a 5 yet either.

So I caved and upgraded to the 5 yesterday. Like it very much, but really had been hoping to get the 5S.
You could always return it and order the 5S online, or ask a family member/friend to return it for you next week and exchange it for a 5S.
