Almost always when a phone is taken from a pocket or purse I'm experiencing following issue. When entering lock screen and trying to swipe it up, it doesn't respond. This state might take long to recover. As a quick fix for this I've been taken my phone and put it briefly on the table face down. After that it always recovers. I suspect it is something to do with proximity sensor as it always recovers with the same action. The unresponsiveness is often happened together with https://together.jolla.com/question/6096/double-tap-occasionally-fails-to-wake-device/ , so it might be related.

Yesterday and today I experienced some major lag in this too. I had to wait several second before I was able to swipe. Couldn't find any resource hogs etc that would have caused it. I hope it will go away after rebooting.

I also did not have any apps running which would explain excessive resource usage.

I also experience this behaviour quite often. I think it is different then double-tap-occasionally-fails-to-wake-device, so it has a place separately. I notice that this mainly happens after several days of uptime of the device. After reboot, swiping from lock screen works OK for 1-2 days.

Same behavior on . Happend already 3..4 times. Only solution shutdown if possible. 2 times had to remove the battery.

For me it seemed to be the mail app that caused this. Had 8 apps running and as soon as I closed the mail app it became responsive again.
