iPhone X with iOS 11.1.2 always slow down after using for a long period. (It slow down even in the home screen when I try to move between pages.)
I need to reset my iPhone X everyday in order to make it fast again!

Perhaps there’s something wrong with iOS 11 latest update.
Never have this issue on my iPhone 7 Plus.

Does this coincide with the battery being low?

No, it associate with a certain period of use. And it can’t return to normal even the battery is 100%. Reset is the only way to solve it.

What are you doing when you realize that it is slowing down?
I realize when I try to move between home screen pages. It significantly slow down.

Bad app doing something? I don't experience this at all, and haven't reset my phone once except when it has updated.

I see this too, sometimes when i unlock my phone there is a bit of lag/stutter now, when before there was none whatsoever.

Must be something in the background keeping the CPU busy. Mine is just as fast as the day I got it.

Hope you figure it out!

Yeah, sounds like a rogue process, or possibly a small memory leak, eventually RAM gets low, apps are just constantly swapping in/out.

OP: what I would do, close down all your apps, restart - now you're at a reference state. Then start by not using more "fringe" apps, stick with stock OS apps (i.e., Mail, Messaging, Phone, Music) for a day, do the same clean start. Then use stock + well known 3rd party apps (FB, YT, PayPal, Amazon, etc...). Finally, if that test passes, you could try some "usual suspects" using the same process, see if you can isolate the culprit.

I mean, there's a ton of variables in all this, but generally this sort of behavior, if it's not widespread, I'd point a finger at a specific application.

Agree with D. T. . Also maybe telling us what apps you run and are you doing background app refresh, do you run a lot of tabs, do you include a lot in search, etc. More info can help in case the group can see anything "strange".
