The last 2 days, my Fairphone3 occasionally gets frozen, and after a while I get the message Graphic UI doesn’t respond.

System is currently up to date, I checked.
Anyone else faced the same issue?

Sometimes 3rd-party apps can make your device unstable: your device might restart, freeze, crash, or become slower than usual.
To identify if a 3rd-party app is causing you issues, you can use Safe...
You say the system is up to date but that’s not really any help, which OS are you using and can you state the update version.
Which launcher do you use for the GUI, is it the default with the Google search bar at the bottom.
