    Too bad OP, that we can't select more than one.

    I chose fingerprint reader and I would have chosen the camera as well for my top choise

    I think all of those features are amazing.

    But I voted for 64 bit. Why? It has to start somewhere. And in a few years it'll be the one feature we are all so glad we have but don't even notice. Just like 64-bit on the Mac, 95% of users don't feel the difference between 64 and 32 bit but under the hood it just makes our Macs so much better. And I think it'll give phones so much potential.

    so 95% users dont feel the difference yet just because its so much better "under the hood," 64bit makes sense? What is this under the hood do you mean when 95% can tell the difference?!@# Most of the difference is felt after 4gb of ram is installed, its not the case with the iPhone so why was 64bit necessary? I would love to know the technical wizardry behind this upgrade and how it will impact this phone under its hood.

    Future proofing. In 3-4 years you'll notice the difference. And 64 bit is a lot more than just speed. That's why I didn't choose the faster cpu option.

    I chose camera improvements. Wouldn't call a lot of the things on the list "new features" though.

    Also didn't Phil say that battery life would be the same as the iPhone 5?


    Regardless, all of these upgrades are negated by the lack of black/slate color option :rolleyes:

    I use an iPhone 1 now. So I am upgrading 1 -> 5S (potentially) And 5S to I guess 8S or 9S. Not everyone buys a new phone evert 1-2 years.

    No, the 5S has big improvements on battery life in both the talk time and LTE browsing departments.

    Hmmm, I wonder what people's favorite feature is now that it's been a few days? I'm still deciding myself.

    Yeah I can't believe they discontinued it. Some people are saying its because of scuffgate? Why do u think they discontinued it?

    I think I'm gonna get the space grey. It's hard to tell from pictures how different it will be from the black/slate? Maybe it will grow on me.

    They should have spent some time money perfecting the anodizing process for the black/slate.

    That was a huge disappointment for me. I know it seems some people don't care, but it sucks.

    Definitely the fingerprint sensor for me. I need to have a complex (8 or more alphanumeric characters) password for work, which makes unlocking my phone a pain right now.
