I just want to hear people's opinions who upgraded from the 4S to the 5. Was it worth it for you to upgrade? Whats your favorite new feature?
I upgraded yesterday and i definitely don't regret anything. For me the best feature is how slim and light the iPhone 5 is! It makes the 4S feel like a dinosaur.
Same as you ^ yesterday, besides above speed advantage is very noticeable. LTE in Manhattan showed over 40kbs download near to Penn Station. my family own 4 iphones now, iphone5 is just a king among all of them. Same as mine ipad3 near to 2 other older ipads we have.I upgraded yesterday and i definitely don't regret anything. For me the best feature is how slim and light the iPhone 5 is! It makes the 4S feel like a dinosaur.
Consider yourself lucky. Many are complaining of "purple haze" as people are calling it. Maybe you just haven't been in the proper lighting conditions to notice it.My 5 doesn't have the purple effect.
i was getting speeds compatible to my verizon fios cable internet which is 50mbs down. unfortunatly not in NJ, so far in Manhattan only.Main this is...it's insanely quick. And I won't get LTE until January or February here. But it renders pages faster than my iPad 3 via wifi.
Of course you wouldn't want to go back. Some 4S owners just chose not to go forward, because we are either not able to upgrade/ready to upgrade/interested in upgrading.I regretted it for a couple of days... Then I got used to the i5. Now I love the i5 and would find it nearly impossible to go back. The pros outweigh the cons for sure.
