I've got a 1TB Xbox One (Fallout 4 bundle) that I've had since November, 2015.

Are there any huge differences between the two? Any performance differences? I'm kinda interested in the S, but I don't know if it's worth upgrading.

Thanks in advance!

Very minimal differences between the two in terms of performance.

But the One S is a lot smaller, lighter and slimmer. It looks better and has a 4K Blu Ray player.

Edit - Yes, HDR. Completely missed that one, my bad.

Thr biggest difference is HDR. Otherwise, in terms of performance you're not going to notice a difference

Why can't the regular Xbox One do HDR? Is it the older version of the HDMI port?

It's smaller, but it doesn't look better imo. Also it's white, dafuq :/

Yup. Also there is performance improvement, more noticeable in games with choppy frame rates, check the video out:

-HDR gaming
-Runs games a little bit better
-4K Blu Ray / 4K streaming
-40% smaller than the OG Xbox One
-Built in power supply
-Built in IR blaster
-Comes in a variety or colours (depending on which bundle you get)
-Includes a Bluetooth controller

The only downside is the fan on the S model is a bit louder than the OG Xbox One.

If you are not planning on buying an Xbox One X anytime soon, in my opinion upgrading to an S model is totally worth it. Especially with how cheap they are right now.
