Here's a comparison of the iPhone 5 vs. the iPhone 4s.  I really enjoyed the presentation today from Apple.  I think I'm definitely going to have to get the iPhone 5 because first, it's been reinvented again and second, my iPhone 4 is out of date and starting to slow down.  It seems to be a tradition that every year, they give the new phone a faster processor.  This years processor is called the A6.  I liked that the screen is a bit bigger and that the phone is lighter and thinner than before.  They really needed to do something about the weight, as the iPhone 4/s was quite on the heavy side.  I'm really excited that the front facing camera is finally 720p HD.  No more guessing where you are in the frame with the normal 8megapixel back facing camera!  I'd been waiting for this feature ever since I got my 4 two years ago.  Facetime on 3g/4g LTE will be awesome.  No more having to be at home, on wifi, if you want to Facetime with friends and family!  I think one of the only crappy things is that the new phone requires a nanoSIM card, instead of the old microSIM card.  That means that I'm going to have to go to an ATT store and have them setup my phone, rather than myself setting it up at home.  I like instant gratification, and I want to use the phone now!  Haha. I guess will have to stop by an ATT store that day and get it fixed up and ready to go instead of at my house!  What do you guys think of the phone?  Going to get it?  Or stay with your old phone?
