    Hello everyone,
    I have an iPhone 4 8GB running iOS 7.1. It has improved with iOS 7.1; but overall it is still pretty slow and laggy at times. So my question is, if I do a complete wipe of my iPhone and don't restore form a backup, just add music and apps back manually, will this help improve speeds at all? Would it be worth my time?

    Might help

    I think it's worth a shot. Additionally I'd suggest using it without adding back all your usual apps at and see if background processes for a particular app might be contributing to some of the lag.

    That all being said, I've noticed pretty much all iPhone 4s are pretty slow at this point.
