    I've had my iphone 5 for over a week now. I've noticed that on some cases the home button is slow to respond. Most noticeably web exiting apps and waking up from sleep. Should I set my phone up as a new phone and not do a restore I ensure best speeds? If I do that, how can I get everything back without too much of a hassle? Thanks!

    I have found, for me, that I get the best results if I start a new device as a new install. When I started from back up in the past, I found that the phone didn't perform as well as I thought it would, and found it a little more snappier from a fresh start.

    Note: This is a new device between new generations mind you. (i.e. iPhone 4 to iPhone 5, if in the same generation, (i.e. getting an iPhone 5 replaced from warranty) the backup option works fine for me.
