    my contract runs out today, so will just sit here letting it roll over until the new phone comes out.

    ideally i want a 32gb one on a 12 month contract but will need to pay a lot towards the phone.

    I'm over two months overdue an upgrade. Failing battery aside, my 4S is still perfect. Not sure whether to upgrade or get a new battery fitted??

    can't believe how quiet this thread is.

    my contract has just run out (on monday) so now due an upgrade, so will wait to see what the 5s brings. would like at least a 32gb model like my 4s, but will depend how much i will need to pay towards it.

    It's always quiet when an "S" version is been released. It happened when 4S came out, but slowly pick up momentum. I think it will happen with iPhone 5S

    We've all seen the 5C. The big question will be; how much cheaper will it be than the iPhone 5?

    Really like the look of the 5C, love the plastic shell of my old 3GS.

    The 5 although has been a great phone, it's always been wrapped in a case due to the issues with the finish and me wanting to keep it minty to sell on.

    Sounds like now is about time to get it sold in the classifieds and get top dollar for it

    I will probably upgrade early to a 5 as orange don't usually allow company discounts to be used on new models as I get 25% off monthly price with work.

    I can fully believe how quiet the thread is! :) as has been said its just an expected 'tweak' upgrade rather than a complete overhaul.

    Don't get me wrong, on the day of the launch I'll be watching online but personally I'm just not 'excited' by the launch of an 's' model. Might have something to do with being halfway through my upgrade cycle (I go for the major upgrades every 2 years rather than annually)

    If they're going with the same form factor as the iPhone 5 then that, and the memories of waiting months to jailbreak each release, means this'll be the phone to make me switch to a large screen Android. I'll be sorry to go, but I feel my hand is being forced somewhat.

    I find it quite funny people had been knocking Samsung phones for so long for being plastic and "tacky" but now it is all cool on the iPhone 5C or whatever it will be called.

    Should be interesting to see how that pans out considering Apple had always positioned itself as the premium brand. I reckon they will actually be more popular than the iPhone 5S though.

    May I ask why?

    It must be lovely to have a decently sized screen AND be able to install whatever software you want from day one...

    The Samsung s3 felt like it was made from left over parts
    From the early learning centre the s4 is a bit better.

    The iPhone had a plastic casing before and it retained the premium feel.

    Personal preference....i have no desire to carry a massive screen around in my pocket and the iPhone 5 is plenty big enough for me. Also i've been jailbroken in the past and each time i installed less and less things. An open OS isnt the be all and end all. If anything in a way iOS being locked down makes it very good in that its stable, works well and less open to things breaking it.

    Too many things now have mounted up making me want to switch back to an iPhone.

    Too big. Several times I've nearly dropped it trying to use it with one hand. Which I can't do easily.

    I keep switching it on at the side button by accident.

    The volume warning that repeatedly pops up when I set the headphone volume to max.

    The stock lockscreen using a PIN is rubbish. No real alternative to Lockinfo or information showing properly on the lockscreen....

    And none of the special Samsung features using your eyes work very well.

    There are other things, like the boring GUI and meh widgets, but personally I miss the iPhone experience that I've used for the last 4 years.

    I have been thinking about ditching the iphone and going for an S4 or HTC One, after reading the above you have convinced me to stick with the iphone for a bit longer.

    An iPhone with a big screen would be enough to convince me to stay, but we're not getting that.

    My contract runs out in October but I am not sure if I will be going apple again as I have been on iOS for over 4.5 years. Apple needs to impress with this release.
