I might give in and download iOS 7

But I heard certain games don't work well with it. And my sister, who also has an iPhone 4, says iOS 7 makes her phone move much slower. I'm surprised they even gave A4 devices the option to have iOS 7. Would you recommend I install it?

Ummm I mean I know people who have it on iPhone 4 and their phones became horribly laggy

I wouldn't recommend it unless you're absolutely dying for it and can deal with the slowdown

Do not do it. I have an iPhone 4 running 6.1.3 and it's quite slow. As stated above, this will pretty much f$@$ your phone. I installed iOS 7 on my mini and could tell that it slowed down.

iOS 7 is death for the iPhone 4.

I knew it! Thanks guys, I just wanted to be sure.

Besides, I'm absolutely satisfied with iOS 6.

Without iOS 7, you will miss out. More and more new games require iOS 7.

I doubt it. It's no where near enough for me to get it. I'm not missing out on anything, and won't anytime soon.

Game compatibility is the only reason I "updated" to iOS 7... but hypothetically it's just as possible iOS 7 will end up wrecking just as many games (I haven't heard of many games iOS 7 kill). Otherwise I can't think of a compelling reason to favor iOS 7 (but iOS 7's large folder sizes are nice).

There are two killer features that I enjoy using on iOS 7, its multitasking bar and the new spotlight.

It is so much easier to kill apps whenI just have to slide them out of the bar instead of trying to hit the tiny "x" icon in the corner.

Spotlight is also easier to use as it is now available at every page instead of having to scroll to the first page then scroll back another page.

Spotlight becomes necessary as it is hard to make out app labels on my 5C and rMini.
