    Those of you getting it, can you please tell us exactly what did you like in the new iPhone 4GS... I mean iPhone 5(with iOS 6) that you decided to buy it?

    Is it the LTE?
    Longer screen?
    New design?
    New Lightning connector?

    Panorama?

    For me it's the RAM. Should be 1 GB on the ip5.

    this seems like a consolidation thread.

    just get the phone if you like it

    Still have a 4, so pretty much everything!

    LTE
    Faster processor
    Panorama
    Retina display
    Thinner design. Don't really care about it being taller. If I want something larger, I'll use my iPad!
    and yes...even Siri. I can use the heck out of Siri, but never had the chance to yet with my 4.

    LTE.

    I actually was hoping all the taller rumors were not true. I'd rather keep my phone the same size. But I can deal with the taller body since the screen is still high ppi.

    Lighter, thinner, aluminium, even optimized battery life - enough for me.

    I'm eligible to upgrade in January, otherwise I wouldn't be getting it.

    I skipped the 4S. My 4 is 2 plus years old and I was upgrading no matter what.

    Exactly. I can understand why 4S users would be disappointed, but I skipped the 4S. The still have the iPhone 4 and it's outdated. I need to update.

    More space, faster, etc.

    For a i4 user, its a good upgrade package for staying in an Apple ecosystem.

    Dual core A15, if that's what the A6 turns out to be.


    My i4 feels slow. If the 5 had a dual/quad a9 (an A5, A5X, or some variant), I wouldn't touch it with a stick.


    Pardon my french, but the other features are... err, bovine excretion... to me. Lightning is a BAD thing, LTE's nice, but not essential, Siri is pretty impractical, the longer screen is... nice, I guess, and all the software improvements are nothing compared to what we already get from the appstore/cydia.

    Seriously, if it weren't for the major hardware upgrade, theres no reason to pay extra over a 4S.
