I am going to wait a few months to get the phone ... im happy with my 4 currently !

Why would you even pick it up? The 4 will get iOS 6, and then they'll just release another iPhone next year that includes NFC anyways. You could save that money and use it for other, better things.

see i was thinking the NFC chip would be what im REALLY looking for besides 4G internet at the moment .... i like the 4 its jailbroken and i have no problems with it ...... i guess im trying to justify it and seeing in person may sell me on the new stuff but currently my iphone is gold antenna and chrome blue fronts and back ...and i like that mine is completely different right now ... im pretty sure someone will break one and i can pick one up for cheap by year end .....

Well I mean, you want a REAL upgrade, right?
Not just increasing your screen by .5 inches and slightly increasing processor power, but an actual full phone upgrade. The iPhone 5 is a *slight* upgrade from the 4S, but I wouldn't consider it a real upgrade. I really, really hate to use samsung as an example, but look at all the differences between the GS II and the GS III. That is a situation that I would consider the GS III to be a true upgrade over the GS II. Why even both with an iPhone 5 ? Wait for the next one.

He has a iphone 4 so how is the 5 not a significant upgrade for him? Why even bring up NFC, something that isn't even wide spread and barely used. I agree it would had been nice if the 5 has a lil more extras and yes its not a huge upgrade from the 4S but anyone with a 4 or below should not have to wait just because you say so. Your opinion is kinda bias and as far as the screen size is concerned good luck on thinking apple will increase it with the next phone. I worked for nationwide carriers for years and majority of consumers don't want a huge phone like the S3. The iphone 5 will do just fine but if the user that made this thread is happy with the 4 then sure wait it out a bit more until apple literally makes a phone to drool over for whi...

The reason people keep going back to Apple is for the Ecosystem and Email, that is it. If Samsung could match them in this respect then you would see the S3 sold out too.
But Samsung is gaining because of screen size. More and more people are switching over to bigger screens. I think the Note 2 will have a bigger impact than the S3. Apple should be worried but they still have some time, Steve Jobs gave them that.
