    It might only be 4 months old but the hardware design is 2+ years old. You could try disabling some features on the iPod such as messages, nike, etc (don't have mine on me at present). I turned off a number of these, which I don't use and speed has improved.

    Check updates again. Another update just came out that fixes many issues.

    In settings -> general -> accessibility Turn on Reduce Motion

    1) Close all apps that are running.
    2) Do a complete power off shutdown then restart.

    If that doesn't work, the best I can think of is contact an Apple store :(.
