Is it possible doing a restore slowed my iPhone 5 down, really paranoid?

My iPhone 4 was jailbroken.

Initially I couldn't even restore my iPhone 5 and had to download tiny umbrella to make some changes to get iTunes to restore my iPhone 5.

Is it possible after restoring, then restoring from back up some corrupt stuff or something could have gotten into my iPhone 5 making it slower?

I dont understand why people post questions like this. Umm just try restoring to factory defaults and see if its fixes the problem.. Then try your restore again. If it's slow again BAM you have your answer..if not BAM problem solved

What kind of answer do you expect from anyone on here? umm it's possible.. does that help you at all? I think not..

Good luck

So you complain about your phone being slower and then you ask people how you can be sure your phone is slower?

Maybe it's you that's the slow one :p

It's unlikely. I restored from backups hundreds of times and never noticed too much of a difference. Your phone is fine, especially if you;re not noticing anything.
