    Yes, I'm happy. I couldn't have imagined any other company providing software support for a phone that is nearly 4 years old at the level Apple has. I mean look at iOS 7.1, it brought performance (animations fluidity) improvements to iPhone 4! Now that's called taking care of customers. Another reason, why I won't be switching to Android for a while.

    I've not upgraded to os 7 on my 4s yet. What, in your experience, makes it worthwhile? Any changes to battery life, etc?

    4s is far superior with ios 7 than iphone 4 is and many apps work better on 7

    No! It's slow drops frames ALL the time. Opening simple things like settings takes for ever. Typing fast will make the letters stop showing up until they all show up at once

    Not really sure yet. My iPhone 4 isn't my primary device. So I left it for ages on 7.0.2. Only decided last week to clean up the phone and backup and performed a full restore to 7.1.1. As mentioned when 7.1 was released, my iPhone 4 does feel snappier than prior 7.0.? versions.

    Not happy that it can't run ios 8, but I'm not buying a new iPhone.
    (Well not right away) :)

    I made the switch from 6.1.2 to 7.1.1.

    It did not feel bad at all, at least to me. I have not tried how bad it was when it was 7.0.4.

    Comparing 6.1.2 to 7.1.1, I personally feel it is a worthwhile upgrade. My old 6.1.2 JB was really slow and bogged down. The new apps are not working smoothly with iOS6 and took ages to load.

    Now on 7.1.1, it loads a little bit faster.

    Some things to note is that I set up the phone as a new one, restarting from scratch. Also picked those settings to help reduce the fancful effects. So far so good.

    Battery life seems terrible...but heck its a 4 year phone already. But on 2G, the phone is decent in remaining standby of around 10h. Usage hours is around 4-5h?

    That is only an hour worse than my 11 month old iPhone 5 on 2G.
    3G returns me around 3-4 hours of battery usage.

    my 4 was long in the tooth when I upgraded to a 5 in 2012, can't imagine using one now!

    I'm happy with it too! Seems to have made my 4 a little faster.
