Who's buying the iPhone 5?
We are very, very near to Apple's iPhone 5 introduction event, scheduled to take place tomorrow, October 4, so while we're all deep in our thoughts about what will the next iPhone actually be like, how about spending a minute here to vote in our poll below.

In this one, we'd like to see who's thinking of buying the iPhone 5. Are most of those, who are firmly decided to get Apple's upcoming flagship, old iPhone 3GS or 4 users, or we'll actually see a number of Android customers express their intentions of jumping ship for the iPhone 5? Don't worry, fellas, our poll is completely anonymous, so your current iPhone/Android brethren will never know about it, and wouldn't want to exile you from your geeky guild.

Here's the thing: due to the really great number of rumors and speculations around the iPhone 5, and/or iPhone 4S, a lot of users have already formed some expectations about what the next iPhone will offer. Naturally, we expect most of you to vote, based on these exact expectations you have now. But, once the announcement passes and the dust settles, we'll ask you the same question once again, in order to see how (or if) your intentions have changed, after seeing what the real thing will be. In a way, we'll observe to what extent your expectations have been fulfilled. Interested to participate? Go ahead, let the voting begin!

Yeah, I'm gonna wait to see how the Prime compares to Apple's new flagship. The anticipation for ICS is almost killing me. Only time will tell.

The Prime will be a monster and destroy everything, regardless of OS.

What a funny poll. Basically ALL options state you may be buying the iPhone. Notice option 4 says "for now"... how about "never"?

What kind of poll is this iPhoneArena basically everyone that participates leads to the same answer, you'll get an iPhone 5 eventually. For that reason I didn't vote cause this is a trick.

Ray S is the biggest fanboy in PA, therefore it's obvious that all choices will lead you to buy an iphone that's playing catch up to the rest of the high end smartphones

I'm using my nokia E63, I think iPhone 5 's amazing but now i don't need to buy it, in my country(I live in Viet Nam), when the new phone is launched and Apple does'nt have buy it in VIet Nam, a bit of people buy iPhone in other country and take it to Viet Nam by plane without any tax, and they will sell it with a double price.

I still don't understand what it is about iPhones. They're so limited. With iOS 5, they're just moving in the direction of implementing Android-like features.

9. What a scam poll (unregistered)

They tucked the "for now" at the end of the last option to make it sound like you might buy it in the future.

A. Yes, I think Phone Arena's poll sucked.
B. No, I don't think it was very good.
C. The poll needs some serious work to make more sense
D. Polls with limited options don't tell very much.

Taco and Gallito and other iphone fans........This is a classified and inside information..
On Oct 4th Apple will first launch the ios 5 and with it the apple iphone 4S......And as the day will progress and other apple produts like 5th gen ipods will be announced and then all of a sudden the screen will go blank and This message will appear
"One more thing"
And then Steve Jobs or Tim Cook will emerge and will say "Lets Talk Iphone"
And there they will announce the iphone 5 with out of the world features and looks.

Trust me iphone 5 will blow away everyone's mind.....even android fans will fall and praise it.....
Samsung galaxy s2 meet your daddy on 4th.......

yea, with such "new" features as a pull down android notification window, android voice controls, android weather "widgets", and all sorts of other android features that were put on display in that "iOS5 features" article here on PA, we android users WILL be blown away..

with laughter about all the iOS5 copying.

So many apple users say they dont like android but they are waiting with baited breath for android features on their iphone. sounds like there are a lot of closet green guy fans.
Your getting iOS-droid 2.0, were getting facial recognition and a total revamp of software with industry first features in ICS. Have fun with that.

iOS 5, it's alot like Android 2.0. Seriously though, it's a good thing these improvements are getting out there, I like that every phone is getting better, makes for a better market. I'd hate to see the smartphone industry go the way of say videogame football.

As far as the poll goes, I'm probably never getting an iOS device. Simply cause it's not for me, I've used them, they're great devices, but it doesn't fit what I want. I have the X and 4.3 inch screen is absolutely perfect for me. Maybe if the iPhone gets bigger or releases a bigger model I'd consider it but only consider, I don't need new phones all the time so the once every year or 2 is fine by me,

No matter what choice you make on this poll you'll still end up saying that you are going to buy the iPhone 5 because PhoneArena would make the last option "I do no plan to buy the iPhone 5 for now." Which means you won't buy it for now but you will later on...
