    will it slow down the phone too much ?

    Yes. DO NOT upgrade. I did and it was a mistake. 8.1.1 is supposed to fix it. Wait until then to see.

    Just stick to 7.1.2. iOS 8.x will not be kind on your phone.

    This. Even my 5(Which is twice as fast as the 4S) is starting to noticeably slow down.

    If I had a 4S I would totally stick with iOS7 for the rest of the phone's life.

    don't upgrade
    adds zero value.
    I upgraded prior to a trans-pacific flight and the phone heated up mid way and ran out of juice around 5 hours in.
    i was stuck for the remaining 10 hours of the flight without an ipod/podcast machine.
    pissed me off enough to buy the 6 as soon as i landed on the other side.

    i guess apple wins.

    Welcome to Apple, their new OS X and iOS just slow down older devices, forcing them to upgrade earlier.
