Are you getting an iPhone 5s?

http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinio...5s-vs-iphone-5

Looks like fairly solid rumors. At least about as solid as they get for Apple. And looks like fairly minor updates with the better camera, finger print reader and NFC being the biggest items. Also rumors of at least a third color and a lower cost version.

I got a 5 right when it came out, so I'm good.

Read a seperate article that this might be the first time few (if any?) would "camp" out for an iPhone.

I'm more interested in moving to iOS 7. Though my jail broken 5 has been so stable, I really hate to give that up. In fact have been caught a couple times unable to use my wifi only iPad, so been thinking of d/l the app to make phone a hot spot.

Yes, unless the announcement is a complete dud.

Funny, I have a 5, and all it did was make me want even better. I've bought three camera's since getting a 5. I guess it was so good I wanted prints and get creative (I essentially got a minor in photography in college) so I bought camera's.

I have made a couple cropped iPhone 5 8X10 prints. OK, but again, more of a tease of what could really have.

In other words, the real innovations have passed, and Apple's throwing us a couple of bones to keep the cash cow "upgrade" cycle continuing.

Big Fail.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5s?

Hopefully it will be $299 like the Nokia 1020 and be a real premium phone. I'm sick of having the same phone as most people.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5s?

I would check one out if it supported T-Mobile's wifi calling. Gotta use my Jump plan upgrade!

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5s?

No poll?

As for whether or not I'm getting the new phone... nope! I'm very happy with my Lumia 920 (We ARE the 4%)
But my wife's contract ends in September, and she has an iPhone 4. She claims she wants a Samsung or Nokia, but I know she'll default to the new iPhone because of shit like Candy Crush and whatever else she plays.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5s?

Still on a 4 and was leaning towards an Android phone but now may stay in the iPhone family just to keep imessaging since most of the people I text most often also have iPhones. Dunno.

Happy with my 4S and I will await the next real upgrade, not an incremental tweak

They couldn't have added another 1/2 inch to the screen size?

It might be tough since they want to maintain retina display. Maintaining the same resolution would drop the pixel density from 326 to 290. Not a huge drop, but probably enough for some to start complaining. That, and the size may be too big for some. My wife was complaining about my 4.3" being too big for her hands.
