    Default does ios 7 work on iPhone4 ?

    Have you had any bugs or experienced any lagging or battery drains ?...how well does siri operate on it ? (i know I have checked about the update on the 4s but if it works on a cheaper phone then why not ?)

    Or would you recommend its best to stay with ios 5 or 6 for someone who does not really care for staying cutting edge and just wants a reliable smartphone that will work for years and years to come ?

    One of my sons have iOS 7 running on his iPhone 4, and he loves it. He has yet to complain to me about lagging or battery drainage. He's a teenager and is always on it texting, watching YouTube and Vine videos as well as playing games like Infinity Blade II or similar games.

    Siri is not available on devices prior to the iPhone 4S.

    Or would you recommend its best to stay with ios 5 or 6 for someone who does not really care for staying cutting edge and just wants a reliable smartphone that will work for years and years to come ?
    If you're happy with what you have now, stick with it, but if you've already updated to iOS 7, you're stuck with it.

    I have an iPhone 4 with iOS 7. Its nice to have so I can see what the new hype is about to and to learn a few things before my 5s comes in. But I can notice that it's slower overall now. If I had to keep my 4 for any longer than a week, I would NOT have upgraded. The slowness is painful, but it was already pretty bad when I installed iOS 6 on here.
    So I would recommend it only if your 5s (or 5/5c) is coming in soon.
