Three letters for you: LTE ----> which is something the 4S can never do.

Unless you had an AT&T iPhone 4S...

AT&T likes to pretend HSPA+ is LTE.

exactly...

LTE on a very bad connection is still slightly faster than the best HSPA+ connection.

More often than not, it doesn't matter at all. Anything faster than 3-5mbps, there won't be a difference in web browsing speeds.

LTE is only useful for personal hotspot...

My first impression with the iPhone 5 was. Wow, it is completely different phone. I had all iPhones ever made. And the jump for me from 4S to 5 was like 3GS and 4.

Much better colors (saturation), Dragonvale looks soooo sweet
Awesome design, I also love the bigger screen, performance etc.

Buy it, if you have money for it, stop this "waiting" madness for 5S etc. There always will be inovations.

Buy it and enjoy it.

I am in love with my iPhone 5, although I upgraded from the 1st gen droid incredible, a enormous leap compared to iPhone 4S vs 5.

But if you think about it within months after the 5S comes out there will be talk of the next gen, why play the waiting game? Technology never stops updating so live in the now get the 5 and worry about how you'll get the 5S when it comes out!

I upgraded from a 4S to a 5 and absolutely love it! It's by far the best iPhone I've ever owned.
