    iOS 7.1 beta 3 is fairly decent on an iPhone 4 considering its age. It's even better if you disable some of the new animations (enable reduce motion, etc.).

    Ironically, if you enable "increase contrast" the OS laggs.

    I strongly recommend anyone who is seriously thinking about "up"grading his iPhone 4 to iOS 7 to use a tool like iFaith to make sure you could downgrade if you don't like what you see. That way you won't have to rely on others' impressions of a one way ticket.

    Updated both my iPhone 4 and my wife's to iOS7 and while performance at times can appear slightly slower, we both find it totally acceptable and glad we updated to iOS7.

    Migrating to iOS 7 brought a very poor experience.

    IMO 7.1 B4 is smoother on my iPhone 4 than 7.0.4 was. I am happy until I upgrade my device.

    I'll never know. iOS 7 was such a horrible experience on my iPhone 4 that I sold it and bought a used iPhone 4S, since I didn't want to reward Apple after they destroyed a perfectly good phone.

    I don't know about 7.1, but 7.0.x is really slow. Also a battery killer.

    I'll try 7.1 when it gets final, but I'm pretty shure I'll roll back to 6.1. I really do not encourage people (owners of iP4 mostly, although 4S got a considerable performance hit too) who don't have their blobs (4, only) saved to 'upgrade' to iOS 7.

    I've also experienced frequent crashes of Settings app.
    Just for the record: GTA:SA is playable on iP4 iOS v6.1, whereas on v7.0.x is like watching a slideshow - and a poorly executed one, w/o transitions. :)

    I restored my partner's iPhone 4 to 7.1b4 and set up as a new device. So far I think she's happier - less lag when scrolling and typing, and obviously the faster app opening animations make it appear faster in general.
