just curious. it seems like most of you are saying its a nice upgrade, but not substantial for the most part. of course, with the right situations, it can make sense: have yearly upgrades, buy unsubsidized to hand the 5 down to the wife, etc. Seems like it'd be burning an upgrade or spending too much out of pocket for people who are going to be in the market for a 6 for the most part. And I played with one a bit. But this might just be my personal experience, and my jailbreak requirement side by side, my 5 felt WAY faster. Of course it isn't in benchmarks, but the way I have mine tweaked, it was just preferable. And I didn't want to use an upgrade and I didn't want to sell my 5 32 thats a bit scuffed for who knows what and pay like 400-500 out of pocket for a contract free one for a bit better cam and a faster cpu that I feel like will be taken advantage of by the time iOS 8 and iPhone 6 are out. The camera was nice and fast shutter, and I look forward to those improvements plus hopefully some more with the next iteration (like good lighting shots to be significantly better, for example). I'm going to be a bit let down if the 6 has the same exact camera, because for holding out two generations I want more, but I could definitely see it playing out that way. And A7 is nice, but I'm not a gamer or media editor on my phone. Didn't even bother using the fingerprint because I'm apprehensive of such a thing, and I don't want a passcode on my phone that I have to enter when my fingers are wet or have crumbs on them. Even when I get my next iPhone that will have it built in, it will be something I don't use. And I didn't like the color choices: silver/white is nice and same with gold/white but I don't like the white front and the grey back looks boring to me and the chamfered edge too distracting. My slate is what I love. I hope with the 6, along with a re-design, I get an option that I'm really crazy about. And, I hope with the 6 the cell radio is different for a power efficiency boost, and because of re-design, battery is physically bigger as well as screen, that would take care of all my issues, and maybe new silicone to make it more efficient too. That would put the 5s (and the 5) and all previous iPhones in the dirt. All these things seem inevitable, and soon. Sure the 5s is on fire with sales right now, but I think it's going to die down sooner rather than later, and hopefully Apple releases the 6 a bit before the full year is up, if for no other reason, I can get a head start on jailbreak progress waiting for my 10/2014 upgrade 4S sales were awesome too, but people definitely lost excitement over it and demand tapered off as people were drooling for a 5. Don't flame me, this is just one man's opinion. I've also had and jailbroken every iteration. I was going to skip the 4S, but I got a great craigslist trade of my 4 jailbroken and cash for a 4S stock that I had to wait all of 2 weeks before I got Absinthe. But it was tough to return the 5s, because I had one with a good screen and I know if I was in the market, that'd probably be my only chance to snag one without interlacing. But I'm really satisfied with my 5, I guess is the reason I ultimately didn't upgrade.
