    I have a dilemma and I need help!

    Until this morning I was going to stick with my 5s but now I find myself leaning towards ordering a 6.

    I usually change my phones fairly often but feel now is the time to stick with one for a lengthy period of time. Tbh I'm just sick of chopping and changing every few months.

    If I get a 6 it's for at least a year.

    For and against please?

    Do whatever you think is best for your situation.

    What does the 6 have that is tempting you, other then being new?

    I think there's so little real changes (other then the size and resolution) between the 5s and the 6 that its not worthwhile - just my $.02

    Being new is part of it but I do like the slightly larger screen.

    So why are you getting an iPhone 6?

    I'm not

    I may get the iPhone 6 plus, which is larger and provide more differences vs my 5c.

    I'm not fully convinced that I want to spend the $$ even on the IP6+ either, I'm still trying to vet out the advantages/disadvantages

    There is no problem, your 5S is probably in tip top shape.
    Get a battery replacement.

    Hmm, if only I had the money to spend to buy a 5S one year then get the 6 when there seems to be no real problem.

    Hmmmmm, seems I remember reading that you were in.

    No matter, I admire your patience.

    I will admit that I am not as excited as I usually am when a new iPhone comes out but I got a long term employee who would very upset if I were not getting the 6 as he gets my 5S. I have a 6 to arrive on Friday, but I will wait till the dust settles and might go for the Plus size later in the year.

    Have a good Sunday.

    If you have the money or have someone else paying your bills - do as you please!

    If you have to be responsible - decide if the several hundred dollars that Apple wants can be justified by the improvements offered.

    In my case, the improvements that Apple is offering over my current iPhone 5 in good condition is not worth the money. So I am sitting this one out.
