If not at first, they will when apps start requiring them to do so.

Beta 2 runs just as well as iOS 6 after a clean install.

I took a chance on giving up my iOS 6 jailbreak, and made the move when beta 1 came out. At first, it was ok, but too many bugs. I stayed with it, as I had the same issues with iOS 5, but a lot was worked out with beta 2. I did a clean install of 6.1.4, then directly to 7, and I haven't had a 1/4 of the problems as everyone else has on any device, let alone the i4. So far, it's running, just as smooth as iOS 6, and I love what they've done with the place.
I've been a user since the first iOS, and have been waiting for a change, and just as I started to show interest in android, apple pulled me right back in, and I couldn't be happier.

I'm running beta 2 on my iPhone 4 now and its not that bad.

Can't see it running any slower than iOS 6 once its released but I will be upgrading to the new iPhone anyway so I'm not too fussed either way.

Shsh

Save your SHSH blobs for 6.1.3, and if 7.0 is slow or buggy, roll back to 6.1.3.

Don't worry about blobs - unless you are a jailbreaker. Follow my instructions at the end of this thread...

Let iTunes do the work for you...

If its really laggy and slow than no but I will probably upgrade my iPhone 4 this year to either iPhone 5S or Nexus 5.

Call blocking is a feature I am anxious to have on my phone, so will likely update mine to iOS 7. But then again, I will likely be upgrading to the 5s.

As much as I am LOOKING FORWARD to using iOS 7 - after the WWDC presentation - I am looking forward to doing so on a brand new device.

I likely will NOT be putting iOS 7 on my iPhone 4S, as it is already getting long in the tooth on 6.1.3 as it is. I will be keeping my 4S as it is.

However, I am very much looking forward to the iOS 7 experience on a brand new iPhon 5S (or whatever it is to be called).

You still need blobs to revert to 6 even if you don't intend to jailbreak. The iTunes backup only contains your data, not the OS image itself.

Yes, i will put iOS7 on my i4. In fact, i am on beta 2 now, updated over OTA from beta1.

I am pretty sure that when the GM will be out, it will work fast, smooth, maybe even better than iOS6, but for sure not slower.

Only if u don't like the UI, you should at least try it and maybe u will get used to it.
