Question: ios 11.0.3 making SE useless

I have a Iphone SE i bought in Australia in late 2016, recently it auto updated to ios 11.0.3 (i never voluntarily update)

since it updated i now have to restart my phone twice a day other wise making and recieving calls i cannot hear the other party and they cannot hear me.

my phone constantly freezes for up to 10 minutes even with regularly closing any apps, quite a few apps have become very laggy.

The wifi is constantly turning itself on and connecting to networks even after i turn wifi off (my home internet is beyond a joke slow)

Also when making calls longer than 20 minutes my phone gets very hot, but once i end the call within 5 min its back to normal temp.

The phone is only about 13 to 14 months old and i have never had problems with any of my previous iphones untill about the 24 month mark.

is there anything that can be done to make my phone bearable again ?

iPhone SE, iOS 11.0.3

Hi 5qu33ky,
Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Based on what you are describing (multiple performance and interface issues after a recent iOS update), you may want to try reinstalling a fresh copy of iOS to help resolve (or at least rule out) any system software issues. Once iOS is reinstalled, you will want to test and see if the issues persist or return. The process is outlined in the following article under the section "If your device turns on but gets stuck during start up" (the article itself is aimed at a slightly different issue, but the steps outlined are still applicable in this case):

Note: While this process generally shouldn't affect your data or settings, it's always best to have a full backup of your data just in case. If you haven't recently backed up your device, you may also find this article helpful:
