    Would you buy a iphone 5 atm or would you wait until the 5s.

    I just bought one last Friday. I needed a phone needed it now so I got it. Personally if I didn't need it I would have waited. But if you need phone the 5 is still a great phone and will be for a while. If you have to have the latest and greatest or you have a current working phone its probably better to wait.

    I just bought one for my wife last Friday too. The money was there to buy it now. But it wouldn't be in a month or so. So, it was a matter of iPhone 5 now or nothing later.

    Which is fine because I have the i5 and like it and I really don't see much in the 5S that would cause me to drop everything to try and get it.

    My wife also didn't want to wait a month for what will probably just be the standard 'S' model upgrades.

    If you have a working phone, it will be worth it to wait.

    It's only a few weeks away, so the most logical choice would be to wait. If you need a phone ASAP, then you would've already gotten a 5.

    As soon as the iphone 5S comes out and you don't want it, the iphone 5 will be reduced in cost over what it is today

    Agreed. If you need one now, get it, if not I'd wait.

    It's like 13 days until they're announced and then like a week after until they're released. Wait man!

    The main reason to hold off now is iPhone 5 is about one year into it's lifecycle and period of support. If you buy the new iPhone 5S you'll likely get a device that will be supported with software updates for at least one year longer than the 5.
