    I've had iPhone 4 for 2 years almost and I'm thinking about getting the 5. Is it really worth it or do I only know..

    In my opinion if you currently have a 4, the 5 is a hefty upgrade. If you currently have a 4S, not as much of an upgrade. The 4 is pretty slow, at least my friends is.

    Yes-- bigger screen, Siri, way better processor, better camera, and all the benefits of iOS 6, and more.

    I've had my 4 for 2 years also, I personally thought anyone buying a 4S was not a very good idea.

    the iPhone 5 compared to the 4 is a true upgrade in my opinion. I'm getting the black 64GB version of the 5.

    Yes. 4G data speed, all iOS 6 features (like some stuff in the new Maps app that is not compatible with iPhone 4), faster processor, better graphics capabilities, way better camera... basically everything.

    I have the iPhone 4 and I am very much looking forward to iPhone 5. I skipped 4S due to the lack of 4G.

    Yeah it's a decent upgrade - But I live in the UK and there's a lack of 4G carriers. Some won't get it until 2014 :s

    I say you should, if you got your 4 on release date it probably started to loose "shape" :p treat yourself and grade to the iphone 5 !

    iPhone 4 definitely. I am going from an iPhone 4 to a 5 mainly because I felt the 4 was holding me back. Even typing on MacRumors would lag like crazy (full site not Mobile site)

    What about people like me? My 4S was my first iPhone. So what you meant to say was people who went from the 4 to the 4S made a bad decision.
