    Personally I love the metal back because it makes the phone much more durable as a whole, I also like how they have upgraded the front facing camera as it has been pretty bad on the previous models, Especially the noise performance.

    What is your Favorite thing about the new handset?
    and is there anything you don't like about it?

    Definitely the bigger retina display as well as the lighter/thinner size. I'm not a fan of bulky phones and this one just hits the spot!

    My son and I watching the keynote before he goes to bed and he flipped out about Lightening cable
    He is happy if that was the only update

    It's still early, but I'd have to say the display. Camera improvements are always welcome, but I was more than happy with the camera on the iPhone 4S. It produced consistently great results.

    It looks nice but with the amount of people Apple employs I would expect more after 1 year of development. The new iPhone hardware is still behind some of the other phones available. I have had all the iPhones since the first one and currently have 3 iPhones with AT&T but since AT&T doesn't support 4g lte where I live I will probably switch to Verizon and maybe switch phones as well.

    I must have missed something. I thought AT&T did support LTE?! Is it area specific?

    LTE is area specific, you would need to check AT&T''s website to verify availability or
    roll out in your area.

    Coming from a 4, the camera quality/speed excites me the most. In general though, I think the A6 is going to be the silently killer feature ultimately.

    For me, probably LTE. But I'm also worried about battery life. I know on the keynote they said 8 hours of 3G or LTE browsing time, but on their spec sheet, it doesn't specify LTE time, only 3G.

    LTE is mine as well. My thoughts are that Apple waited to add LTE until energy-efficient chips were available and cost-effective, so hopefully the eight hours is fairly accurate and equivalent with the battery drain rate on 3G.

    Siri! Oh wait, that will still be worthless. So I guess nothing really.... But the nano looks good. Might pick one of those up.
