I've been getting regular slow downs on my Xperia 10 plus with the screen becoming unresponsive. If I try turning screen off and on I often get a red LED. Running top I see very high (to me) cpu use by lipstick averaging around 50%. Is there a way to figure out what's going wrong ? phone is becoming unusable .

Update - I've noticed that the issues only really happen when I'm moving (on the bus mostly), not when I'm at home or in the office. As a user with little understanding of how these things actually work my ideas for possible causes were the accelerometer sending too many signals or switching between phone masts to maintain data causing problems (I sometimes have 4G connection issues on reboot). Do either of these sound likely?

Can confirm it also on Xperia XA2 Plus

Lipstick is known to use too much CPU, but the screen unresponsiveness issues are more likely due to system running out of memory.

There have been several reports about this and it seems related to a hardware issue when tge screen is slightliy twisted which makes the touch sensors go berserk.
