I can't wait to hear about how different it is and why everyone needs to dump the last generation phone to get this one.

It's really just a slight form factor change, essentially the same design, spec bump with LTE (maybe NFC), likely a better camera with a few more options, and that's it. We've essentially seen the OS. I bet there will be a section handed over to accessories in order to justify the port size change. But nothing really "next level" or that other devices can already do.

But they will sell a shitload of them because Apple has a very good understanding of where everyone is in their Hardware Upgrade Eligibility cycle. At least in the US.

I'm upgrading to it eventually, but not in a rush. My only reason is that I want to return to having an unlocked phone. This past year has been one headache after another while traveling with the 4S I currently have.

The iPhone is the only apple device I own.

Google maps is no longer native and being replaced with an Apple version apparently using the TomTom mapping. May also have built in navigation as well so no need to purchase a separate navigation app.

Youtube will also no longer be native.

Yup but that's iOS6, not ip5 specific. Maps works well...no more streetview however but routing based on traffic and construction conditions works great.

Do you guys really care all that much about LTE? Personally I don't care for the addtiional cost from the carrier. I don't think I've ever complained that my phone internet speed was too slow since 3G came out. Anytime I need to do large transfers I'm usually on a wifi network anyways.

Actually nevermind, I thought LTE coverage was an additional charge from the carrier, looks like it's rolled into data plans now. Still don't care that much about LTE though.

I am predicting underwelming hardware. Probably specs that can't even beat the SG3, even though it's coming out months after.
