    i really like the design of the 5S. I want to use my phone less and the features of the 6S will get me even more lost into my phone. I want to use the 5S before its obsolete such a beautiful phone. I'll probably crack and buy the 6S in a few months lol.

    This is the digital version of shouting from the rooftops.

    If you really want to use your phone less, I've got an iPhone 4 I can sell you...

    I'll just say that if the 5s is a beautiful phone, the iPhone 5, which actually has a Black/Slate version and not Space Gray is more beautiful.

    I know because I have one. And I avoided getting the 5s because it doesn't come in black.

    Although I do have a 6+ now - in Space Gray (boooo, hiss!!!!)

    I keep my 5s in a black leather case, so it's all black (very stealthy) and soft to the touch.

    I may have a hard time letting go when my 6s arrives tomorrow.

    I liked the smaller form factor of the 5 and 5s. I also really liked the slate color of the 5 (wish they'd bring that back!). But I do love my iPhone 6 very much and I'm sure my wife will eventually love her 6s (she has small hands and likes the smaller phones).

    I can see where you're coming from, but progress is a good thing in this situation (and most tech-related situations)

    I still claim the 5S in space gray is the best iPhone as far as design. That's why I have kept it (without a sim) as a camera and secondary device. The 6 and ultimately 6s are "better" but the 5S design was just great. The 4's aren't bad either. I think the 6's and 3g's have been the dogs as far as design.

    LOL.

    My iPhone 5 manages that look without a case. ;)

    I'm not putting you down, I'm just vocalizing my preference is all.

    We don't sell our phones, so my 5 is still working flawlessly. Jailbroken on iOS 8.3 it sits connected to my PowerMac G4 Quicksilver, ready to be used as a camera or media device at any time.

    Or passed along to someone who needs a phone.

    I really like my iPhone 6 space grey in terms of design. The iPhone 4 was my favourite though.

    Just too bad there's no 64GB version available new in box anymore. I'm hanging onto my good ol' 64GB 5S as a backup phone even after getting a 6 Plus.

    As a matter of fact, after I get my 6S Plus, I think I'm going to sell my 6 Plus and go all S-series.

    Don't knock the 5S. Great little phone still.

    Hell, the 5S is really only missing 2GB RAM. Other than that, it has the specs to last in the current environment.

    The 5S is the best iPhone design by far.

    I still wouldn't buy one at this point though...

    Heh. I went looking to see if there was a thread for people still clinging to the 4" form factor. (sorry, I still think both of the larger phones are too big). If I want a tablet, I'll use one. :)

    Everyone repeat after me - iPhone 6s+ = iPhad (phonetic pun intended) :)

    Guessing everyone has pants and shirts with pockets big enough for grocery shopping? :)

    Didn't see anything mind-blowing with these latest releases, so I'll stick with the 5s for another year. Maybe they'll give those of us that don't need the real estate a 7C by then.
