How well does the iPhone 4 work when upgraded to iOS 6?

From previous experience, Apple products are only good for one major upgrade before there is a serious decrees in performance. Although the documentation says that the older hardware is compatible with the new OS'... Compatible, yes; willing run, yes; will it run WELL, not really. I've been reading articles on the iP4's performance under iOS 6, and the tests indicated that it does so satisfactorily. I would however want feedback from people here who have done the upgrade on the venerable iP4.

Each of my parents has an iPhone 4, and they haven't experienced any major issues since upgrading to iOS 6. I, being used to my iPhone 4S, did see some lags that weren't that noticeable when they had iOS 5, but it is still very usable.
Either way, before updating / upgrading the operating system, you should always make sure that you have a fairly recent backup, either on iCloud or on iTunes, so that you can revert back to the older version if needed.
