To buy, or not to buy a new iPhone 5? That is the questions iPhone 4S users may be facing in the coming weeks.

Apple revealed its newest smartphone on Wednesday during a media event in San Francisco, showing off a slender new device that retails at a starting price of $199.

The iPhone 5, as expected, trumps the company's previous phones in a few crucial areas. For example, the latest device is powered by a faster A6 processor and can make calls and download data over speedy 4G LTE networks. But is it really worth it to spring for an iPhone 5, especially if you already own an iPhone 4S?
