    No. If the screen was bumped up to 5 inches then yes.

    But as you state things, no. Never.

    iPhone 5 is perfectly fine til the screen size bump.

    I'm fine with faster, but a compromise between battery life and speed is needed.
    Not a big thing for me.
    No. Where would it go?
    It's easy to say all of this good "lighter, thinner, faster" stuff, but this poll isn't realistic at all in my opinion. Of course, it would be great if it was possible, but if it was, everyone would get it.

    No. Simply because it's thinner and lighter. I want something more substantial than a sheet of paper for my phone.

    I said no. I don't want the next iPhone to have iOS 6.

    How about we make this more detailed:

    Would you buy an iPhone 5S If:

    All new A7 Processor (1.4GHz Quad Core ARM and 1GB RAM SoC)
    13 MP iSight Camera
    Biometric Display Detection
    Lighter, Thinner, More Durable design
    iOS 7
    Polycarbonate housing with color selections

    If so, I probably would. Based off of OPs description I'd be dubious at first. I'm considering switching to Windows Phone or Blackberry if the 5S doesn't WOW me enough.

    No because the iPhone 5 is good enough for me and none of those features are worth upgrading from it. LTE, better battery, bigger screen, thinner, lighter was good enough from 4S to 5 though.

    How about detailing what features will be in iOS 7?

    Then you get into really subjective territory, because if the features of iOS 7 determine the phone, then there's not a yes or no choice, since your ideas of what iOS 7 needs may not be the same as mine. All I want are visual tweaks to update the appearance (Like Auxo and a complete redesign of all the apps)

    Yea, that's my point.

    It really depends on what iOS 7 features contain.

    I just hope its better than what iOS 6 offered.

    I only voted "no" because I'd rather wait for the 6 to come out. The S versions usually don't carry much of a "wow" factor and they don't have any radical physical changes.

    NO, because Apple has to "get with the program" and get that screen size up to 4.5-4.8

    The screen size on the Iphone 5 is pitiful. It should have been a bit longer and ABSOLUTELY wider.

    I have the iphone 4S and I WANTED to buy the 5. That tiny screen is the reason I didnt. Will probably pick up the Galaxy S4 in April/May.

    Yes, because it'll be at my time to upgrade...

    Ew no!

    1.4GHz Quadcore is ok but I want 2GB of RAM!
    13MP Camera ok but they need to get a better flash.
    Thinner but not lighter. I think the lightness makes it feel cheap. I want some substance.

    Lastly, no POLYCARBONATE please! Samsung uses this stuff and it cracks and scratches like crazy. It feels cheap and Apple used it on their Macbooks before. It doesn't hold up AT ALL.

    Keep the Aluminum unibody construction or use another stronger metal.

    LOL I remember those nasty MacBooks.

    To answer OP, no I wouldn't.

    Hardware & Specs isn't the problem, it's iOS. It's bland & boring, I had enough.

    I can't remember the changes Google made with Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean but it was enough to get me to upgrade from S3 to Note 2.

    Take the latest for Note 2 & 4.1.2. They gave us MultiWindow!

    I'm still learning but with Launchers & Widgets it keep it fresh.

    I'll skip and wait for the 6.

    The 5 is wicked fast even with its dual core processor.

    More pixels is a plus but I would prefer better flash and a upgraded lens.

    Biometric scanner sounds cool.

    I think the 5 is small and thin enough, I don't want to hold a paper thin phone :eek:

    iOS 7 we don't know anything about, but something new is always welcome

    No polycarbonate please!!!

    I'm getting black even with more colors.

    It depends. Is it lighter, or does it have a lighter?


    Be glad that you only remember it. I use it. Anyone who says that plastic is better gets the disgusted face from me. Also, doesn't plastic trap the heat unlike heat-conducting metal? My MacBook vs my brother's MacBook Pro: the aluminum MBP doesn't have a leaf-blower fan running whenever it's under heavy usage.

    But, there's no need for 2GB of RAM; there's nothing the iPhone can't do that would require 2GB. (The only reason the Samsung GS3 and other Androids have 2GB is because Android is so laggy)
