Default Most simple games and UI lag while heavy games work fine

Hello I have Novathor U8500 device Xperia U with dual core processor and Mali 400 GPU.

Problem is as title says most simple games lag while heavy one are working great.
By doing some tests I found phone can't push more than 58 fps,no matter phone sometimes simply jumps to 90 then below 30 and I can't debug this.

I'm asking is there any way to fix this or cap fps to for ex. 55 fps.

Thanks.

Its not so simple also it doesn't work.
Enabling GPU Rendering also not helping.
