My 4s is just as fast and it feels much more sturdy. The 4s and 5 have the same camera, no I don't have any scratches on my lens, thank you. I take lots of pictures and feel no need to upgrade to the same camera quality. I actually prefer the smaller screen. I still get to use iOS 6 so theres no excitement of upgrading. Iphone 5 doesn't have any specific features thats not available on other phones i.e siri for 4s. The only good thing the iphone5 has is LTE. Sorry but I'm not upgrading just because of one feature I want. I will skip, maybe the 5s might be something I'll look into. I'm guessing it will get a major camera upgrade along with quad-core processor.
