iPhone 5 or 5s?

I got an hardware upgrade with rogers right now. I have no interest in keeping the iPhone so I'm most likely going to sell it and get something else. Should I get the iPhone 5 16GB or wait for 5s and potentially sell it for more?

Up to you really... the iphone 5 has been out for a while now so the resale value isn't as high as when it first came out. If you can wait a year then get the 5S or w/e it is that they will come out with. If you have an upgrade now, I would just use it as you will be going a year w/o no upgrade and it won't speed up your next upgrade as you will have wasted a year.

iPhones are an inferior product. Go with:

HTC Butterfly
Samsung Galaxy Note II
Signature removed for violating the rules.

Not inferior, just go with the one that suits you best. Not everyone likes 5 inch phones even though they are great phones.

If you are upgrading to resell then dont grab the iphone 5 now just wait.

iPhone 5 is good, but 5s is around the corner.
Yeah, if 9 months from now is "around the corner".

It's funny you chose the two products that are ridiculously sized, appropriate only for a niche market, and using bloated OS skins.

At this point I wonder if people suggesting the Note II are just trolling. If not, then I'm sure the irony is lost on them when consistently suggesting the same 2-3 devices (always including the SIII or Note II) in the context of swaying Apple users from being "iSheep."

As for Apple, yeah at this point nothing is more than rumours, but so far it seems iOS 7 might be June, with a new device not until the fall.

Get the 5 sell it now while it's hot, the 5s is 9-10 months away, in that time you can probably force Rogers to give you another upgrade or lower your upgrade fees :lol: .

Also a lot can change in 9 months, a killer android phone could come out (galaxy s4?) that could take the market by storm and lower the demand for the next Iphone substantially.
Thinking about upgrading to the iPad air 2 from the air 1? You MIGHT want to reconsider. http://youtu.be/qjhC4S3vcD4

I use that News360 app on my iPad and ALOT of speculation articles regarding both an iPhone Mini and iPhone 6 instead of 5S.. But who knows

PS: just came back from Thunder Bay this summer and loved it.. Persian donuts and Merla Mae's ice cream rule! Also spent an amazing afternoon at Wild Goose Bay swimming in Lake Superior.. can't wait to go back
