    Hi all,

    I'm looking exclusively PAYG/SIM only deals right now, so need to buy the phone up front.

    I've always bought bi-annual updates, so 3G -> iPhone 4 -> iPhone 5. But I'm starting to wonder if that's a good idea?

    Beyond the new form factor, I'm not sure the iPhone 5 offers an awful lot over the iPhone 4S. So I'm considering a 4S. Then I could constantly be one generation behind (unless a new and utterly spectacular model comes out that I can't live without) and potentially save quite a bit of money.

    Has anyone else done this? I haven't worked out the specifics but I'm sure it'd be cost effective, and mean I always get a fairly recent phone...

    How could the iPhone 5 offer a lot more over the iPhone 5 since its the same phone?

    Are there any benchmarks yet for the iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S?
