This is the second time this month that it happened.

UI crash when I try to use an app, display freeze, unresponsive touch screen, the only thing that I was able to do is to press the power button. This last turn the screen off, and the red LED starts blinking really fast. There is nothing to do when led is blinking that way. When the red LED blinking stop, the phone can be woken up in a normal way, but everything starts again when I try to use again an app.

Holding the power button while the phone just froze up shut it down, and once rebooted everything work fine as usual.

Here is the video of the issue: http://videobam.com/aTjTE

Also, my battery where around 95% when this happened (you can almost see it at 00:04 in the video) and according to this post I'm not the only one with that issue.

I hope this post will help to fixe it.

Yesterday I had the same experience, same symptoms, battery almost full. I had to remove te battery to restart the phone.

For an explanation of the LED blinking patterns read this:


I have the similar problems but with a green LED blinking (it seems to be related to WLAN connections when you leave the WLAN zone).

Green blinking happened just a few days ago, same behaviour. I tried not to reboot, but the phone looked unstable, so a reboot was performed.
