It is most likely due to one of two things: (1) iPhone is running out of free memory and paging out or (2) app is poorly written and using up lots of CPU and other resources excessively (e.g., memory, GPS).

Try a restore then and setup as new phone.
If it still does it then bring it back to Apple.

Yes, but you have to figure out if its a software issue that's causing your phone to be slow or hardware.
If it runs fine when restored and setup as new then its a software issue and if you restore from your old backup you might inherit that issue again.
