    One thing I keep forgetting. I had my 5S 32 Gb almost full. 'Bumping ' up to 64Gb, was a big thing.

    Fortunately I'm well off enough I can indulge. Now don't get me started on cases. No spec bump there just looks.

    The health features and NFC are kinda cool.i'm surprised how much I like the bigger screen and it's not uncomfortable in my pockets. That's a big spec bump.

    Spec bumps have always been a motivation. Just depends if you value them. And that is different for each.

    Thanks Charlyee and yes I don't need your approval. nor was I seeking it.

    My record is to try them out for a year. No more than year for the last 6 years.

    There are only 3 devices that I have used for around a year, in the last 7 years - Treo 750, Treo Pro, iPhone 5.

    My average is around 8-10 months, so I hope the NEXT thing will work out for me.

    I could too, but I try to think whether I should rather than just whether I could :p

    For me the process is very simple:
    1. What can I do with this new device that I can't do with the old one?
    2. Do I want/need to do that?
    3. What am I giving up to do that?
    4. Is it worth it?
    If I feel like I'm giving up too much or it's too much to pay for a small gain, I stay put :)

    Granted, for you (going from iPhone x to iPhone x+1) the answer to #3 is always "nothing", which certainly simplifies things :)

    Perhaps Apple will come out with an iPhone 7, no innovation, not even a spec bump, but in the shape of the 5 or 4, ( with all the features of the 6) and you can upgrade to that

    How about iPhone 6s, keeping the same size and shape of the 6 (I will get used to it in a year), and add something truly innovative as opposed to a spec bump.

    Off hand the Active Display on the Moto X comes to mind. :)

    Sure, if it something I can turn off.

    Having examined active display on a relatives Moto X, I can defiantly say that is a feature that I don't really find useful. It's a feature not innovation, by my definition anyways.

    I'm not sure where this is all going. There has always been enough changes, upgrades in specs and new features and sometimes innovations (like fingerprint NFC with no CC info transfer ) in every new phone to make them fun to buy and talk about.

    And you can't beat having fun, can you?

    The battery usage time is much improved from the 5s. Although not as good as the 6 plus, I am still getting 13-14 hours under normal use with a mixture of wifi and cellular.
