    In germany the 5S 16GB costs 699€ at Apple. But uncertainly you can't get any from apple before mid october.
    My local electronics store has three 5S 16GB spacegrey(unlocked), but they want 729€ for each.

    Would you pay this?

    at such a small price discrepency, its just a matter of preference and bragging rights.

    If the gap was larger I could see the need for forum feedback. But when are you are already spending 699, whats another 30?

    No way. I'd wait.

    Edit: €30? and not €130? Yes, I'd pay that.

    I would.

    You're paying a 4% premium to get it sooner. It's sort of like paying extra for expedited shipping. I usually just go with the cheapest shipping option, but if I really want something, I don't mind spending extra.

    For the iPhone 5S, I am so happy with mine after having had my iPhone 4 for so long, that I do think this is one of those times it'd be worth it.

    I would definitely pay it. Not too much of a premium to have it almost 1 month earlier.

    30 euros to cut a 3-week wait is a no-brainer.

    Then again, 30 euros would probably get you a decent case.

    Its up to you ultimately.

    Guys you're great! :)
    I'm already sitting in my car driving there :D

    Is it a good idea to unpack the phone right there to check for scratches etc?

    Maybe Apple should be doing this anyway. Charge $100 premium for the first month, $50 for the second month and normal price thereafter. It would smooth out launches a bit, probably sell just as many phones in the first three months, and make more profit.
