    Some say it's the same phone but there are a few new features I'm looking fwd too

    I'd say Siri - so I can waste my time asking it stupid questions so I can laugh.

    Oh man I can't wait

    "Siri - where can I bury a body?". Lol oh man! I'm exited!

    Let's post new articles with new Siri quotes guys!

    I skipped the 4S and kept the 4 so I am looking forward to Siri.

    Coming from a 4S, just really looking forward to LTE.

    The bigger screen of the iPhone 5.

    FaceTime over cellular, and Turn by turn function for maps in IOS6

    I'm looking forward to the bigger screen, but I'm really excited about Do Not Disturb and iOS6 in general!

    First is LTE. I'm stuck on Sprint's utterly crappy 0.4 mbps download 3G...

    Then the improved camera because my iPhone 4S is the only digital camera I have.

    Everything else is just a bonus.

    Siri b/c I never went 4S.

    LTE, however my area is expecting it by year end, so that will have to wait.

    The 720p FaceTime HD camera, though I suppose it only benefits the other person until they have a FaceTime HD camera.

    Also the new Text response features but that is iOS 6, not iP5 specific.

    I don't use mapping turn by turn, but after years of Google Maps dependance, I wonder how the transition to Apple's maps will be. When you are used to one look for so long, a change can be tough.

    Siri, Passbook, spoken turn by turn navigation, etc. I know some of these might get old (Siri) for example, but it will be fun to have.

    After having used LTE on my iPad for a few months I am really excited to have it on my phone. Also, the raised throttling cap on my unlimited data. :)

    Overall, I am excited to try eveything out. I skipped the 4s due to the upgrade cycle. I really enjoyed going from the first gen iPad to the third, I don't think this change will be as drastic, but still fun.

    Yeah, I'm currently using iOS6 on my 4S and I can say that I'm not loving Apple Maps.

    Coming from an HTC Inspire 4G, looking forward to turn by turn (GPS sucked on that device), better battery life (phone would die by 2PM), better build quality, better camera, and overall better OS/experience.

    It is refreshing to see a thread not filled with negativity and people freaking out about orders, heh. :)

    I am looking forward mostly to:

    • LTE - This will be very welcome when I'm on the road and away from the comfort of my reliable home wi-fi.
    • Passbook - Not necessarily an iPhone 5-only feature, but I feel that this is the dark horse feature of iOS 6. Given the proper time and attention, I am hoping for good things.
    • Apps - We've seen the benchmarks - it screams. I can't wait to see what clever uses of the new processing power devs come up with.

    I'm looking forward to the bigger screen, LTE, speed increase, new redesign... Also looking forward to seeing how the new speaker is. Noise cancelation which one hands on said feels like noise canceling headphones. I use face time a good amount and the HD camera will be nice.

    This is a big upgrade. I'm excited and I have a 4S. I don't understand the disappointment.

    Better screen too, better low light camera with better photo quality.

    IOS 6 is gonna be awesome too.

    I am looking forward to having the extra screen space and the iOS improvements. Weirdly I am also looking forward to just getting to know how the two tone back feels in your palm. It sounds odd yeah but after having used glass for two years my hands are itching for a change. =P

    The DND feature is nice. I've been using it daily at work and it works pretty good.

    Once I upgrade I'm looking forward to using LTE and FaceTime over cellular with the wife. I'm also interested in Apple's new earphones.

    I'm also coming from an HTC and I'm really excited about the switch. I'm not going to say all androids are like this, but mine was horrible. It was my first smartphone and I have regretted getting it from the second I got it. I'm really looking forward to my first iPhone. I'm looking forward to a high quality phone with an easier to use os. I've never even figured out how to delete and app on the phone I have now. I had to install an app that made it easier to uninstall apps :confused:

    LTE and Siri are my big two features. I'm sure as I use it other things will crop up that I really appreciate.
