iOS 6.1 on iPhone 4

My wife has an iPhone 4 and I was wondering if anyone has experienced any issues after installing 6.1?

My concern is the phone running sluggishly after the installation.

Any input is appreciated.

Don't worry 6.1 performs the same as 6.0 which is good.

Good to hear. I had heard mixed reviews and hope that it goes well.

for me it fixed slow home button click response as well as super slow camera load times.

Overall it seems snappier and that is what I keep reading from other 4.0 user posts.

No issues so far

Is this update even good for the 4 or 4s?

I also had the feeling the home button is more responsive; happy with the upgrade so far on my iP4.

...or bad, if you look at the bad points. LOL. Didn't notice ANY difference at all. Laggy as before.

When I installed it there was one issue with "backup corrupted", and the installation was cancelled. Deleted the Back-up on the PC and it was fine.

No other issues.

Mine is perfect except for the fact the battery is draining faster that it was before the update, its only over a week old.

I'd suggest reading about the features gained when running it on iP4, as well as the features that you don't get due to hardware limitations.

On the iP4's in my family I chose to leave them on iOS 5.x. They run faster & deliver much better battery life than my friends iP4's on iOS 6.x

My iPhone 5 is fast fun & stable on 6.1, but then again it's designed for it.

Try and do a complete restore in iTunes, that should fix it.
