How is your experience going with your 4S? Is it lacking at all, and how? Do you need the larger screen size of the 5 to make your experience more fulfilling? I've been debating making the upgrade from my 4S to the 5, and despite occasional shifts, I've mostly decided to wait until the next iPhone release.
Here are some possible reasons why: 1. If I upgrade now I will wish I would have waited until the next iPhone came out**. 2. Like you, I love my 4S and find it in no way lacking. 3. By the time the 5S* comes out the line of accessories will be more filled out and refined. 3a. I'm invested in and dependent on my current accessories that aren't matched by the current level for the 5. 4. The 5S* is going to be even more awesome, and if I get the 5 now I won't be able to upgrade until the 6**.
*Assuming Apple names the next iPhone 5S
** This is ignoring the fact that i am likely able to sell my current device and be able to fund the upgrade.
I just got my 5 about 3 weeks ago. I love it. I sold my 4S for 394.00 on eBay to fund it and made almost 200 bucks to boot. But the amazing thing is LTE.
I could never go back to a 4. 4g is waaay slow in comparison - and the faster processing is very noticeable. With those two things working together - my experience is great to giddy. LTE makes the experience rock solid as well as SUPER fast with AT&T.
My 2 cents....
Great news! You will not regret your decision! Now just keep getting the solid numbers like iPhone 6, 7, 8... forget anything that has an "S" on the end.
Like i said previously its the same thing slightly tuned.. Go for new designs.
Like others have said, I love my 5 compared to the 4S. The only downside was the lightning connector. The charging "Cube" is the same but the cord is different and at $20 a crack it can get a bit expensive to replace any spare cords you may have that you need (work, car, vacation home or whatever). The old cords for the 4S and before were readily available from third party suppliers and were cheap but so far that hasn't happened with the Lightening connector cords. Enjoy!
I'll have to look into that, thanks for the info. I have a bad case of CRS and when the wife and I go on a trip, I can never remember to bring the charging stuff with so I keep a charging kit in my suitcase and each of our vehicles. If I do get one from Monoprice I'll post the results on the iCafe forum . Thanks again.

When I got my 2000 300M, it came with automatic headlights. People were constantly telling me that I'd left my headlights on after I'd parked. I took great joy in telling them that they were CRS lights as I walked away.
I think it comes down to this^ If you can sell your 4S to get the 5 at no cost to you, why not do so? If for some reason you can't (maybe your 4S has a little cosmetic damage?) and you're satisfied with your 4S then just wait for the 5 successor announcement. It can't be far off.
