I have an iPhone 4S, and I would like to know from someone who upgraded to the iPhone 5 from the 4S, why do I need to upgrade? (I know there are differences, but is it worth it?)...

If your 4s is working good, you don't 'need' to upgrade ;)
Camera is a bit better, larger screen, faster processor are the ones that pop into my head.

Now I remember--I think it was the better camera and the larger screen--I use the camera a lot to photograph projects for my crafting blog, so a better camera is a big deal to me. Now I'm wondering how much better it really is! ? Thanks for responding.

There is no "NEED" to upgrade unless the newer version(s) have what you consider "must have" features. I also have a 4S having upgraded from the 3GS. My eligibility for a discounted upgrade is in the May/June timeframe. By that time, I'll likely upgrade to the putative 5S/6 but the 5 isn't as much of an upgrade for me to pay the higher price. BTW, the reported current limitations of the iPhone 5's antenna design with respect to LTE (simultaneous voice/data) is another stumbling block.

YMMV

I suggest this. If you can afford it get one from your carrier and use it for a few days. If it is not 'worth' it you can simply return it. Albeit you'd probably pay a restocking fee of about $35.

But, sometimes a small fee is worth it in the long run :)

I upgraded from a 4s & Samsung Galaxy S3 to an iPhone 5. Lets just say my iPhone is not going anywhere. LOL
