    Only for iPhone 5S Users/Holders:

    The question is very specific as imagination can be endless, I came up with whats below based on rumors [some before the 5S launch]

    Will you upgrade from iPhone 5S to 6 if it has the following specs:
    - 4.3"+ Screen
    - 2GB RAM [We know apple won't go up to 3GB so I'm not even going to dream a little]
    - LTE-A
    - 16GB - 128GB Storage
    - 8MP Camera with better optics than 5S
    - Touch-ID Sensor [Same if not improved vs 5S]
    - Same Design

    P.S. the poll will close on July 1/2014

    I'm sorry I only have an iPhone 5. But I like the 5S, I just do not want to spend money.

    I do NOT want a screen larger than 4,3 inches. For me, the phone must be able to be easily used with 1 hand.

    I understand, I'm just trying to see how many 5S owners will be willing to ditch the 5S should Apple give the above specs in the next iPhone 6 because my 5S was the first iPhone that I bought outright for full price, so lots to think about before I for one can decide on upgrading to the "best iPhone yet" when it comes out lol and not to mention with pretty much the end of Subsidies, it will make more people think about upgrading when the iPhone 6 makes its round.

    I am satisfied with iPhone 5s. I have no reason to upgrade.

    I said no because I haven't even had my new iPhone for a year yet. It would be pointless.

    If they come with a 4.3-4.5 screen and 128gb Yeah I'm game. Just because 64gb is not cutting it only have 1.5 gigs left

    I just saw that a it said 5S and not 5C. (I always thought they both came out at the same time and the 5C was just colorful.)

    I always say no, but after the 6 is out for a week or two I probably won't be able to resist.

    For me the iPhone 6 really needs to be something special to stay with apple. It's gonna need some really special hardware and software upgrades as I really think the like of samsung, HTC and LG are leading the way. I appreciate that a lot of the features on these phones are gimmicky but nevertheless less they are there if you want them. Whilst the iPhones are of good build quality, easy to you and have a stable iOS I'm getting to the point where I'm just a bit bored with it and sick of waiting for features that are already out there on other phones.

    I'm not knocking apple, it's just from a personal point of view that unless something significant is brought out with the iPhone 6 I think I might just try a swap over to android.

    Just shows the nature of some of the people on this forum. We don't even know what the iPhone 6 will have. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I'm not planning to upgrade. I'm in a 2 year contract with my 5S.

    If I get tired of my 5s before my 2 year contract is up, I'll pick up a Nexus 5 and play around with Android again. :eek:

    I've got "Jump" from T-Mo, so I'll be all over the 6 like ugly on an ape!

    Nope. I'll wait for the 6S.

    The S models are the best version of each new generation.;)

    If we just look at current lineup, we know that the 5S internals will be transferred down to 6C for next year, hence I did not mention the 5C despite it being released at the same time.

    No, I won't upgrade to a phone without having seen it, it's features, or size... my answer can easily change come September.

    Raw specs, even if yours prove to be accurate, are meaningless.

    No. I don't see much reason to upgrade every model. I recently went from 4s to 5s. Huge difference and worth it. Even if I had the 5 I would go to 5s. It's best to wait every other model.

    Depends on what the new iPhone 6 looks like. Can't vote this early for something not out or at least some good photos of a possible 6. Photos leaked today are not do-able for me as its still too early for the better rumored photos to come out.

    With the 4" screen, the iPhones and iPod touch seem a bit too narrow. A 4.3" screen should make it just about the right width, but don't expect the resolution to change.

    Sure I will - when I can sell my 5S to pay for the 6, why not upgrade?

    I have the 5s and I will not buy another iPhone until they actually put out a new camera with increased megapixel. 8mp is dated and the fact that apple just keeps tweaking it is sad. There is only so far you can go with 8mp and apple has hit this. "Better optics" sounds more like recycled tech that lags behind the competition. Is MP everything in a camera, NO, but in 2014 they need to go ahead and get with the times and bump up the MP count to 12 or higher.

    I can hardly wait for the 6. It will be awesome is my guess.

    No. It seems like such a waste to get a new phone every year. In fact, I got my 5s on a 3 year contract.
