A family member of mine recently got the iPhone 5 on Verizon. I have the iPhone 4 (awaiting shipment of 5 from Apple).

For me, the LTE is the biggest feature as it will hopefully stop dropping calls due to low signal and actually give me faster speed (I get max 2 bars where I live).

I turned off wifi at home and ran speed tests on both phones side by side.

iPhone 5: 19.65Mbps
iPhone 4: 0.77Mbps

Both had 2 bars but the iPhone 5 said LTE where as the iPhone 4 has the 3G symbol.

Yea, I’ll be upgrading alright!

Just remember... where there isn't LTE, you'll have those 3G speeds. I personally rather have good HSPA+ speeds and LTE.

I say this because I'm in central jersey and verizon advertises LTE in so many places where I know its not.

Interesting replies. Glad to have posted. Hopefully calls won’t be as bad as the 4… we’ll see
