    I love every thing about this phone. I give it a perfect 10. I could see myself using it for 2 years easily. What will be your next phone? The 5s, the 6, or whatever android and windows phone would be offering at the time?

    Me? iPhone six it is.

    Whatever the 2014 iPhone is. Still though, I'm anxiously awaiting what iOS 7 will bring. I was more than okay with the refinements contained in iOS 6, but I think iOS is plenty refined now, if you catch my drift...

    Probably a Motorola Startac or Nokia 8210 with upgraded LED lights.

    Though I will be getting the next iPhone, I'll also try to get my hands on a Lumia 920 if it's not too steep off contract/I can get an upgrade on one of my lines reasonably soon. I work in Windows Phone/Windows 8 software development, and having personal test hardware is never a bad thing

    I'm loving the iPhone 5! It's a huge improvement from the iPhone 4 I had.
    I'm sure ill get the newest iPhone when my contract is up in two years.
    iPhone 6:)

    I wonder how much smartphone tech will slow down over the next 5 years or so. We are accelerating so quick right now that I don't know if it's sustainable.

    iPhone 6 is my next phone, but perhaps the 5s if it "wow's" me.

    Whatever one it is that gets released with a wider display. I passed on the .5 inch taller.

    apple almost never improves a version of iOS. They may release a bug fix, a security patch, or a jailbreak block (which is the opposite of an improvement) but when was they last time they released an update within a generation that genuinely added something that was missing?

    I guess iOS 4 got that HDR update which I enjoyed but many still don't even use.

    This is iOS 6, we need to accept that. Or in my case just not update. I'd say there is a slight chance they will put in some overtime to try to get out an update for Maps, since it is an obvious problem for the majority of users.

    Next Google Nexus phone and then after that probably the next iPhone.

    I am no bothering with any other phone manufacturer until they stop putting their stupid ****** skins on the phones.

    I want that Pomegranate NOW.

    But seriously, that translation feature should already be a feature in some smart phones.

    Amen lol. I'm tired of Motoblur, sense and touchwiz. Just give me a stock OS like Apple or Google intended it. That being said, it will take a lot for my next phone not to be an iPhone. The OS is so stable and consistent now, it's almost perfect. Hopefully they take some risks with iOS 7 tho

    Look up the technological singularity if anything technological progress is supposed to quicken at an exponential rate over the coming decade. The one thing that could impede this..greed

    It won't be the next iphone, I upgrade when my contract is up. In two years if Apple still has a healthy third party app and it looks to still be going strong, the iphone most likely. If not, I might have to look at what's going strong at the time (for me the thing that would most likely get me to leave the iphone is if the third party app developers left).

    I like my iPhone 5 but I do question how much the maps thing is going to hurt Apple.

    ----------

    Not really.... I think they could improve the multi tasking bar. Instead of holding down an icon to get them to wiggle so you can x one out, how about being able to drag the icon off the multi task bar to quit a program (like how you remove icons from the dock on the mac). That's just one very glaring ovesight.

    Also wouldn't mind at least a few setting widgets for the notification screen (not even asking for all widgets, but at least some quick ones for settings like wi-fi and bluetooth).

    Would like to remove individual notifications from the bar, not just everything from one app or nothing (biggest reason is my to-do app. I'd like to remove stuff I know I've done off the notification bar while leaving the stuff I still need to do).

    Oh, I'd like to be able to see the date at least in the notification bar, it's ridiculous there is no quick way to access that (that's something I missed from my iPaq running some old windows that existed before iOS period).

    Not to mention I'd love to be able to scan the notification bar down in the lock screen.

    Oh, only cause I misunderstood how do not disturb works did I think of this. For some reason I thought when you said only allow calls from whatever list to interrupt you, I thought that was always, not just during do not disturb hours. I'd love a feature that did this though. Where you could say only bother me about a call if it's from this approved list (otherwise list it as a missed call so I can see it if I look to see if I missed calls but don't interrupt me about it). It would be a great spam filter ;). Or even a feature to say don't bother me for calls from this number (for example I keep getting this stupid dealership calling me claiming it's time for my maintenance. Except it's a dodge dealer and I have a toyota and I've never even bought a car from them. They've gotten so regular I put them in my address book solely to give them their own special ring so I know to ignore it from the ring).

    I mean it's all small stuff but it's stuff I've noticed anyways, enough to remember off the tip of my head.

    I'll say the 5 was a good upgrade this time but the OS was a bit of a boring upgrade (and they still ignored spots I think they had room to improve. Task managing is annoying though at least now the 5 might have enough room it's not as important, the 4 certainly needed you to manually task manage though).

    Yep, same here, it's a great improvement from the 4. For all the 4S whiners the phone wasn't aimed at you. Apple aims them at the people with 2 year old iphones cause the standard US contract is two years (we all know they are US-centric). People with the 4 said the same thing about your 4S :p.

    For me, the area is now iOS. If Apple doesn't make iOS way better, I think I'm out. WP or Android. Don't want to leave, but it needs some serious attention now. Not just little updates or that same old line every year "200 changes".

    :)
