    I'm on ios 10.2, on iphone 5s

    It has gotten a lot slower and glitchier this past year, I know reformatting my PC will often freshen it up to like-new speeds. Do people experience something similar with iphones?

    Try a restore by plugging to iTunes.
    And setup as new.

    Usually the third firmware update is laggy and or slow for some devices. I used an iPhone 5S with iOS 10 and it's laggy and a bit slow. Next year iOS 11 is going to slow down the iPhone 6

    When I still used my 5S, it was fast and slick on iOS 10. I noticed no genuine difference versus iOS 9. I don't know what it would be like on 10.2 though, as I donated the phone to my dad (he had my ancient iP4.) I can't imagine it would be hugely slower on a point release of the OS though.
