    Does anyone think they could possibly lower the price of the 5s to the $450 range like the current 5c when the iPhone 6s is released?

    In my opinion, the 5s is the most perfect phone ever created, as far as appearance. I'd love one, just not at today's incredibly high price ($719 Canadian).

    The only phone more perfect would be the iPhone 5. ;)

    Black/Slate over Black/Space Gray.

    IMO.

    Well, in USD they will most likely lower it to $450 upon 6S release. I don't know about CAD...

    Couldn't agree with you more, I love my 5's. So much so, that last month when my 5's suffered water damage I replaced it with another 5's even thou I was eligible for an upgrade to the 6 at the discounted contract price.

    I agree completely. Bought my 5s last November. We were in the Apple store with our granddaughters last week and I handled the 6 and 6+ again and I'm sorry, I would choose the 5s all over again given the opportunity. Only change I would make is I would like to have 64G instead of 16G, but I just love the 5s.

    I wish they'd release a 4" 6S option. I agree with others above, the iPhone 5/5s was the best looking device Apple created.

    Yes it is! So good looking that I refuse to cover up its beauty with a case of any kind!

    If they follow the previous pattern then the 5S should drop to the spot in the lineup where the 5C is today. I might end up picking one up myself to go back to iOS and get the newest phone with a small screen before it is discontinued.

    I'm done with the 5S, I love the design, but that battery... Oh so frustrating.

    The 6 didn't blow my skirt up for one reason. I don't need bigger. Improved? You Bet, I'll take that, but the big big craze is just stupid for so many of us. Remember when Gigantic cell phones took a hike with the amazing Razor? Well, that didn't die. Compact is still a good idea, even if it is 4 inch. A friend just bought a 6. I'm playing with it and thinking it's a nice design, but wondering what it would be like in 5S size. Bet I have lots of company. I don't want to answer a call on a stinkin' iPad Mini! Please....!

    Hope others agree ;)

    I've been thinking and saying to different people for seven months that I want a 4" 6s or at this point 7. I'm glad apple has built larger phones as some people like them (my wife loves her 6), but I wish they would bring back a 4" phone that has the latest and greatest internal tech with the beauty and form factor of the 5s.

    I've tried to do the 6 two times now -- Just do not like the size.

    5s size is brilliant and just right. I REALLY hope there's a 6c model with updated guts and Apple Pay (NFC chip) - I'll be all over it if so.

    It can get a touch bigger if they keep chipping away at the bezels, but 4.5" is probably the max. Really, just stick with 4" for me personally

    I wouldn't doubt that Apple continues to drag along a smaller sized model of iPhone. I say drag as they will probably have it be the "C" model and give it older specs, but I don't think the trend of having a larger phone isn't going anywhere anytime soon. My reasoning behind this is that people are going for more all in one devices than before, and along with that the amount of media consumption people do continues to increase. Even though you can consume media just fine on a smaller device, it is just a much nicer experience on larger screens. We all know Apple loves to make the user experience as nice and profit inducing as possible, so they will continue to make these larger phones to help drive those margins. Honestly I don't know when it will all stop. I've been on Android for a while, and I remember when 4.3" was big, then 4.7", 5.0", 5.2"... For the average consumer they want a nice media device while also making it portable, and larger screens happen to win out more often than not. But sometimes I just want a tiny phone I can easily slip in my pocket and take with me... Oh the "problems" associated with choice ;)
