The 4S is quite a significant upgrade. Faster CPU and graphics, HSPA+, integrated noise canceling circuitry, much better camera, BT 4.0, and redesigned antenna. On the software side, there's Siri, 1080p video recording, and real time video stabilization.
Of course, you and your ilk aren't forced to pre-define what a "real" upgrade is so you can just repeat the now age-old "it's just a minor upgrade" every time Apple releases the next iteration. In the words of John Gruber, what would it take? "A fusion energy source? Teleportation? A camera that sees into the future?"
