iPhone 4S vs. iPhone 5: Upgrade or not?

Postby marish » Tue Sep 18, 2012 4:12 am

iPhone 5 has become the focus of the whole world since its release. It is reported that it over 3 million people have ordered it.
There are top 5 reasons to upgrade to the new iPhone 5 in the air:
(1) 4-inch retina LCD
(2) LTE highp-speed network
(3) Faster A6 processor
(4) iOS 6
(5) New form factor, slightly thinner
If you have an iPhone 4S or an older apple phone, would you upgrade to the new phone 5? Why or why not?

I have a 4S. If I were eligible I'm still not sure I would upgrade.

1) The new form factor means most apps will get clipped for a while. It will take a while for all apps to be updated and would make for a less than optimal experience until then.

2) The new plug means that at least some of my existing accessories, likely including my car adapter, will no longer work. It will take a while for accessories to catch up.

3) I cannot stand the headphone jack on the bottom. It will take me some time to get over this change.

4) Similar issue for cases as plugs. The selection won't be great at first and there will inevitably be production issues.

I'd upgrade to an Android.
