As for the article, I can see colors and the storage/camera upgrade, but not NFC. That's a new feature that they'll save for a new design. Unless they decide to forgo the #S this time and go with a new design. It's possible.

While Samsung have started making 128Gb memory modules AFAIK they have not actually produced any phones using them yet. And I believe they are the only people making them which, given Apple's attempts to move away from relying on Samsung makes this seem unlikely, but Apple might think it worth it for the premium they could charge.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes.

Are they serious??? I just got Factory Unlocked iPhone 5 and now in six months 5S?????? Seems very stupid, why doesn't apple stick to 1 upgrade a year like they used to do? I guess i5 is going back to the store (I'm still in 14 day return window)

The iPhone is kinda boring me now, i'm all for a redesign. I still think the lockscreen needs ammending, something like lockinfo would be ideal. Colours would bring a touch of personality to it.
I only wish I could get iOS on some other phone because there are some really nice ones out there.

dude, why wait when what you want is available right now? why "must" you have an iPhone anyway? I never understood people's reluctance to give up an iPhone when ALL the features they want are available on so many other phones. if you just want iOS for its apps, why not just get an iPod?
besides all that, you know that when it comes to phones (Android or iOS) you'll NEVER have the latest and the greatest because there's always something new right around the corner.
yes, that's exactly what I was referring to.

64 internal plus 64 on a card is not the same as 128Gb. But never mind.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I don't want a bigger screen. The 5 was a mistake. It wouldn't have happened under Mr. Jobs watch.
If you want those things, or indeed, a cheap phone, buy Android.
If you want the best buy an iPhone - that used to be true under Mr. Jobs but since he's gone I'm not so sure...He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I really enjoy the larger screen. It not being wider doesn't bother me

That's some funky logic. The taller screen is just better. It shows more content where it's needed. It also keeps its form factor and ease of use with one hand.
But these are just my opinions. I too thought the taller screen was awful. However after using it I see an iPhone 4S or older and think "can't ever believe I thought this screen size was good".

You can't make anything naturally bigger by only adding height to the screen. Width needs to be added in conjunction with height. I want a bigger screen that supplies bigger images. I will patiently wait for the iP6 which will prob have a wider screen. Until then, I'll hold on to my money.
And I fail to see where it would show more content where it's needed.

Also please take a look below I hardly see how only one line of text was shown more. It's quite the big difference.
Also keyboard takes up much less space leaving more room for content when your writing. Yes side by side one device in hand to the other in hand is not that big of a deal. However use an iPhone 5 for more than a day then go back after You've adjusted to having more screen
Also the where weight reduction I feel is very nice and love how thin it is. I'm not being hostile to you or anything just bringing a different view to the table

By turning the phone in landscape you have proven my point that making something wider does NOT give you the extra content like making something taller. like you said you only got one extra word per line.
