    I know we don't know much about it yet, but do you think you will upgrade to the 5s or whatever it may be called? If yes why, if no why?

    I've been hanging on to my iPhone 4 waiting for the 5S to come out. I usually upgrade every two years but passed on the 5 last year, and although I have no issues with my 4, I'm sure it won't be long before IOS 7 or 8 will no longer work on it.

    Don't take this as absolute fact, but I think IOS 7 is going to be the last OS the iPhone 4 supports.

    Nope...

    my 4s was all but dead a month ago so I upgraded to a 5. Do not see myself upgrading again for another 2 years at least.

    May upgrade to a 5S if in fact the screen is larger. My 4s still works great but I would like a larger screen

    Quite happy with my 5. Only way I'll get a 5S on release is if either a) I get one for free, like I win a contest or get one as a gift or b) someone wants to trade my old 5 for a new 5S.

    I don't see either option happening to me :p

    Normally, I'd say yes (I'm on a 2 year old iPhone 4s)
    However, now I don't really know...
    I just had my phone replaced by the genius bar. It's as good as new.
    And I look around, and flagship devices still for sale today are still running the A5 chip - iPad mini, iPod Touch... iOS 7 is running completely well on the A5 chip. It was probably designed with the A5 in mind.
    This is in contrast to previous updates whereby the 2 year old devices would be left out in the update - the then 2 year old iPhone 3G did not get iOS4's multitasking and it was laggy as heck... the two year old iPhone 4 did not handle iOS 6 very well - it didn't get panorama, it didn't get turn by turn, no Siri and not cellular facetime...

    But iOS 7 makes the 4S feel like the current flagship phone. It doesnt feel like a 2 year old phone...Why would you even get an iPhone 5??? It has no added features except Airdrop.. And I'm not reading any rumors to suggest anything groundbreaking with the 5S....

    Unless the 5S blows everything out of the water, I may just stay with the 4S for another year and go for the iPhone 6...or 'gasp' the next nexus (if the iPhone 6 still seems stale)???

    How many polls about if people are going to upgrade or not do we need?

    iP4, so most defiantly will.

    if I go iP5 or the new design, remains to be seen.

    Have a Verizon iPhone 4, it works fine and all apps that I need run well on it.

    Dont care about fingerprint sensor, all I want is a larger display.

    Yes. My 4S is working fine. But, why waste an upgrade?

    No, but only because I'm on the other upgrade cycle. I get a new phone every other iPhone, so 6 for me.

    ----------

    Start a thread with a poll to see!:D

    My 5 is quickly deteriorating, so I am going to have to upgrade to something this Fall. :(

    I have a 4S and my contract will be up soon so I most likely will upgrade

    I just want the latest and greatest.

    I used my wife's upgrade to get the 5, and gave her my 4s. This time around I'll get the new phone with my upgrade (assume 5s) and give my wife the 5.

    She's happy, I'm happy.

    In what way is it deteriorating - hardware wise or performance wise?

    As to whether I'd upgrade, it depends. Would need a double increase in battery life and a slow motion camera; they're my top two features.

    Unlikely at this point, I will be going to Samsung most likely.

    What is wrong with the other 2-3 polls on this exact same topic?

    I switch from an iPhone 4 to a S3 last September. I have been planning to switch back to iPhone as soon as the 5S is announced.

    I'm upgrading. I have an "early upgrade at a discounted price" available in September, so I'm gonna take advantage of it. And I already have a buyer for my iPhone 5 which will help me cover more than half of the price.

    Apple doesn't seem ready to make a larger screen for my 65 year old eyes, so I may look to the dark side for the HTC One, come on Apple Quad Core lots of Ram, 128 card and 6" screen, get with the program!:cool:

    No. I'm happy with my 5. I even bought a/c plus because I plan on keeping it for 2 years. I'm actually more I interested in iOS 7.
