You see, it's a PHONE. You do sometimes have to hold it in your hand and talk on it. The 3 is comfortable, the 4 is not, and the 5 is even worse.
I'm using a 4 now because tethering is much faster over wifi than Bluetooth and it's got a faster processor. But if it weren't for my Bluetooth headset, I'd have to switch back to the 3gs.
I just hope Apple maintains a reasonable screen size option, those Samsung phones are ridiculously large. And PLEASE don't make it thinner again, thicker with much longer battery life would be amazing - and easier to hold.
Oh, and I know an easily and quickly swappable battery is probably too much to ask for, but please, Apple? Back when I carried dumbphones, I always kept a couple spare batteries charging, and changed them out when I ran the battery down (which happens if you're on the phone for several hours a day, and I am some days). Now instead of a spare battery, I have to have a spare iPhone, and do a SIM swap when the battery dies. And if Apple comes out with a swappable battery now, it'll be regarded as a brilliant innovation.
