Oh yes.. by this article and picture I can see how the 5s will be clearly superior and totally worth an upgrade!

Sorry. BMW's do not have scuffs and chips on the rims out of the factory like iphone's do. And they are definitely not made in China.

Lame. I'm expecting big from Apple with this iPhone 5S. I replace my iPhone 4s to Samsung GS4 because GS4 is just simply amazing Phone. And iPhone 5 was a big failure. Now if there will be major improvements in iPhone 5S, like major make over in Display. Camera, FEATURES and Performance LIKE IT SHOULD BE, Then I'll buy and put back my support to Apple. BUT if NOT, if the iPhone 5S will be like iPhone 5 in all aspects with just very minor changes then Bye Bye Apple. I'm sure billions of people has the same thought with mine.

I'll wait for the finished product and see everything that it offers. I like the iPhone 5 design. A bigger screen would definitely be welcomed but I don't think its a critical feature just yet. iOS is a strong enough platform to overcome a smaller screen size. I previously had an iPhone 4S, and I'm currently rocking a Nexus 4.
It's going to either be an iPhone 5S or a Galaxy S4 Play Edition come September.

They should at least cut off some bezel. I can forgive the screen size but the front just has so much useless space. 4.3 inch screen would be awesome though. It's quite tiring sometimes to use my SGS4. To think I used to use Note 2. The SGS4 looks lovely with it's thin bezel.

So what happened to that rumor about 2 months ago that Apple halted production of the iPhone 5S in order to shift from 4" to 4.7"! Also, what happened to the rumors that the "cheap" iPhone 5C would cost around $350... so now it'll cost $490???
