      Excellent! My 5s is still up to snuff but once it bites the dust, this is my next phone.

        I guess I never realized there were more people aside from gmd who wanted something smaller than a 6; the 6 never seemed overly large to me. Whatever!

          You knew I've always preferred the 5S size over the 6/S.

      I think I might change from a 6 to this. I still hate the smooth nature of the 6/6s after 1.5 years.

        I hate the rounded feel of the 6/6s as well. I never feel like I have a great grip on it.

            I am seriously surprised I haven't had a serious drop. Blah.

              I've probably dropped mine a half dozen times. I'm just lucky enough I haven't caused serious damage.

                I refuse to get a case. Cases are for the weak I've decided.

                      I'm just really careful, but I've still dropped it a couple times. Eh.

          Early rumors have it being the same shape. Also I can always sell and upgrade if it's amazing.

            They might make the back material slightly more grippy. Right now they are using Teflon, butter and polishing it to slip 'n slide tolerances.

      My 5s is still going strong, but I'd be interested in a 4" iPhone in the future. I already have an iPad Air 2 (two of them, in fact!) so I don't need a large phone. I'd rather have a smaller device since I keep it in my front pocket.

      sweet! perfect time to upgrade. my 5og is super slow and i'm noticing that some updated apps aren't compatible anymore.
