Are you plugged in? I find problems with responsiveness when ever the phone is on charge. As soon as it's unplugged it's fine again

I have a similar issue on a stock Desire S (purchased 2 months back). I have given it to the Service Centre, and they have told that the screen needs to be changed (completely hardware issue).

Previously, I had done reboots, soft resetted and hard resetted it. Also, had unmounted SD card (somewhere I had read, that faulty SD card or formatting it, helps sometimes in freeze issues). But to no avail.

My exact issue: The phone started to not respond to the back and menu key intermittently (for few secs or 1 min), then the time has gradually increased. I can pull down the menu everytime, but the lower fourth of screen (including the soft keys) is affected. It has got no relation to charging status or any app (htc/google/third-party).

Your digitizer could be busted. Best to have it looked over but the service centre if a faulty charger is not the problem and ot occurs even when not charging.

Sent from a phone waiting for kernel v3. Wake up HTC!!
