    I have a 5 that works fine and does everything I want it to do. The function delta in the 6/6+ that Apple offers for the money is not enough for me to ditch a perfectly functional phone. I'll hold on to see what Apple comes up with the 6s or maybe even holdout until the 7. One thing I am doing is not upgrading iOS beyond 7.1.2.

    There will always be something better! That is why I upgrade only after 2 years. I have the 5 as well and am due now. Will be getting the 6+.

    I can't understand the question... Are you asking an advice to upgrade your current iPhone 5? In this case I think the iPhone 6 is a very good upgrade.

    It's a good upgrade. Very happy.

    I've got two lines, so I upgrade every year to a new phone, and even from the 5s I was happy.

    Imho absolutely yes.
    The upgrade from a 5S could be debatable, especially if you like the 4" form factor, but from the 5 it worth.

    As much as I'd rather wait for the 6S, or even the 7, I need a phone, so the 6 it will have to be :(.

    It's a good upgrade. I went from an iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6+ and when I hold the 5 in my hand now I can't believe how small it was or that I could ever stand such a small screen. Go for it.

    If you want a bigger screen then yes.
    If you don't then no.
    If your phone seems slow then yes.
    If it's fine in your opinion then no.

    I think the 6 is a good upgrade from the 5, although I would definitely have kept my 5 longer if it weren't for the battery no longer lasting for even a full day. It's still a beautiful phone.

    I went to a 6 from the 5 and there's quite a difference between them. My 5 functioned fine and was only a year old. The form is different enough to make the upgrade worthwhile. At least it was for me.

    Keep the 5 until at least the 6S when Apple is gonna have to make a stronger phone to avoid bending issues.

    Going from the 5 to the 6 is a pretty big upgrade just with Touch ID and the A8 processor. The bigger screen is icing on the cake.

    upgraded from a 16GB 5 to a 64GB 6 and there is absolutely no going back! having a bigger screen is awesome and it is still operatable one-handed with a few days getting used to. plus touch-id, faster performance, better camera, better speaker. and i can finally put some music on my phone again with 64GB, never think about the size of apps, recording videos and simple things like updating the software(!!).

    Get the iPhone 6/6 Plus so you're on the iPhone # cycle and not the iPhone #s cycle. That way the design of your iPhone stays relevant for 2 years. That's that I did. :)

    The S cycles get "relevant" internals for 2 years. You could say the design stays "current", but I don't see how an iPhone 5S suddenly became "irrelevant" now?

    I think that the upgrade from the 5 to the 6/6+ is significant enough to do the upgrade.
