Delete background apps from memory and Reset. Press the Home button twice quickly, in the new row of icons at screen bottom, tap and hold on an icon until the Red Minus Signs appear. Tap all the Red Minus Signs. When done, Reset, hold both the Home and Power buttons until the iPhone restarts itself, ignore the "slide to power off", let iPhone restart itself, usually takes about 10 seconds of holding both buttons. See if iPhone functions better.
