First reports are saying that the 3gs running os6 is beyond slow, so if you have one I'd wait to make the leap until more people use it. Because it's kind of a pain in the butt to go backward once you go forward with Apple.

iPhone 5 is the first iPhone that I'm not all that thrilled about. Maybe it's because I'm getting all the cool new (and by new, I mean new to iPhone) features on the 4s.

Bigger screen and LTE... I can see why some people would switch. I'm probably gonna stick with my 4S for a while though. I'd rather pick up an iPad Mini at Christmas. Sucks that I'll need two sets of charging cables though. As it is I have chargers at home, car, and at work, and all would be useless with the new connector.

I'm disappointed Apple didn't include NFC. They could have really driven up the awareness and adoption rates, making the NFC on my android phone more useful.

The 5 has a new connection port for charging?

Yep, the new connector is a lot smaller, supposedly allows them to make the phones smaller/thinner. $35 for an adapter if you want to use an iPhone 5 with your old accessories like speaker dock, car charger, etc. Would have been wise to include it with the phone, methinks. They make like $400 profit on each phone they sell so that should be the focal point, why make people delay buying the new phone? As opposed to nickel and diming on adapters when people will just end up buying cheap knockoffs from China anyway. Some accountant probably figured that pissing people off is balanced out by selling X amount of adapters... oh well.

As for Samsung's LTE patent, I doubt anything will be affected. All the companies (Samsung, Apple, HTC, Motorola, etc) have a bajillion LTE patents apiece so it will be tied up in the courts forever and nothing will come of it. A lot of lawyers will get much richer, though.

I don't see the big deal with LTE or faster speeds in general. When I'm getting a good connection the speed is as good as I need, when I'm getting a bad signal, it sucks. I'd rather see efforts put in to consistently getting 2-4 mb down no matter where I am rather than getting 20+ in certain areas.

For things like streaming video it matters. A lot of people use their iPhone/iPad for MLB.tv, Netflix, etc. If all you do is email and light web browsing, then you don't need LTE. The vast majority of people fall into the latter, as there's not a whole lot of reason to need faster speeds, but as usual early adopters are in the minority. Once it's more common then the capability will be put to greater use, just like every technology. Even still, with web browsing on most sites, the faster connection will noticeably make pages load faster. You don't really notice the change until you go back to the way things used to be. Right now, we're conditioned to wait a few seconds for every web page to load. It's like the difference between using an old HDD and a new SSD on a computer. Everything is just a lot snappier.
