Thanks for the suggestion, but....... brace yourself......
...That's the case I had that I'm blaming the problem on!!!
Looks solid enough, but it's not 'hard' in any way, shape or form. I got the stick indents on the underside of the flap, so if you have one of these look out for it!!
The case I bought was a proper solid shell, was called Crystal Case or something, from Amazon. It came with picture inserts so you could customise the outer appearance (not a selling point for me, but will help anyone interested pinpoint it.) This case specifically holds the console in a foam interior so it can't move, and has gaps where the sticks/buttons are so they are not interfered with when the case is shut.

I returned mine to Sony - they tested it and said nothing wrong with it - although i wasnt entirely sure they understood the problem. They agreed to send me a new unit which i hope will not have the same problems...

I think ps vita has slightly too sensitive analogs and they wiggle from left to right which is afaik perfectly normal. After reading issues like yours i tried uncharted on my unit and i noticed that even reeeeaaalllyyy small push make character walk slowly.
By the way are you sure you're not pushing those analogs hard? Its just that you might not notice it yourself.If not then I blame design of analogs because they have so little to travel and its normal for them to wiggle so it makes that travel distance even smaller. I have read that some people are having issues like you so maybe there are lot of units shipped which have malfunctioning analogs.

I've had my new 4th vita for just over a week now, gave it the big test the other day. Played a 2hr session of U13, and 25 mins in, had the issue again!! I rebooted, and then had 1.5hrs play without issue.

That really sucks. I feel sorry for you . I think you should make video demonstration about your issue (yes even if problems happen after 25mins) and send it to Sony and demand that you get 100% tested and working device next. You could also check those games official forums to see if issue is with those certain games. My left analog has became very loose now but i have tried few times Uncharted demo and i have disabled motion controls and so far those issues haven't happened to me. If these kind of issues are widespread ( i hope not) then in next version we might get very different sticks or 3ds kind of slidepad.
