    Hurr hurr. Windows 8 is faster than my MacBook Pro with Quad-Core i7 ever was.

    Anyway, just use it normally. It's an iPhone 5, it won't be slow any time soon. But pretty much just close apps if you recently launched any bigger ones (Infinity Blade, Real Racing, etc).

    You really aren't going to have to worry about this with an iPhone 5, but your own suggestions are actually what anyone should do just from a proper maintenance standpoint. I'm assuming you're coming from an older iPhone? Or older smartphone in general?

    Dnt install android otherwise it would lag on a dual core!

    None of that stuff you listed should do anything actually.

    Here are the only ideas i can come up with

    1. Restart your phone every once in a while

    2. If you notice any weird bugs try restart, reinstall app etc... or restore your phone to a fresh copy.

    Any honest answers out there? other than the lame windows/android jokes? My 3GS at this point is unusable being so slow on processing anything it's like a first gen blu-ray player painfully slow! My ip4 was on the same path slowly but surely getting slower and now I'm pretty sure my ip5 will meet its demise eventually.

    I've noticed that my iPhone 5 has lagged a few times when I would be in the text messaging app and I'd be receiving some text messages.

    Earlier today I also clicked the sleep/wake button to wake up the phone, and the screen would stay black, and then I'd click it again and the home button as well, and it wouldn't respond for a few seconds.

    I'm not sure if only i'm experiencing this problem, but when I first set up my iPhone, I set it up from the iCloud backup of my iPhone 4. So I'm restoring it right now to see if it helps.
