edchair, I agree with you 100%. I develop software for the Industrial Devices on Intermec and Motorola with Windows Mobile 6.5. Microsoft owns this market because of the way so many businesses have to do an Operation called DEX, and Windows Mobile is/was the only OS to support it. But they have let the ball drop on this. They released a Version 8 and they did not push it. I don't understand what they are doing in this arena. The rugged device market was theirs, but no more. They just let it go. Many if not all of the Route guys you see deliverying packages, and stocking shelves use this Windows CE/Windows Mobile 6.5 OS. But my company is saying goodbye to Microsoft. We are doing IPAD and IPHONE development with Xamarin , now that we have an alternate support with DEX through a bluetooth device. I mean, this is a big market for Microsoft, my God my company is a 3 billion dollar company heavily invested in these devices. We hear crickets from Microsoft on their direction in maintaining this Market. They don't want it...apparently. I too get made fun of because I have been a Windows Mobile guy since PocketPC 2000.

My guess is neither Apple nor Samsung would have let a problem so severe plague their flagships so long with no explanation and no apparent resolution in sight.
You must have quickly forgotten the Note 7 and Iphone grey screen of death issues

rush_edward, sorry to hear Microsoft is abandoning the rugged device arena. Not sure what their strategy is for the Mobile device market. Seems to be rudderless at this point.
edchair, this is the worst time in any transition period. Hardware is scarce, support seems nonexistent, news is bleak. I would like to see what is announced at Build 2017 in a couple of months. Perhaps some clarity on what they are planning to do to attract developers to the UWP.

My Elite x3 used to only have this issue once or twice a week, but recently after I purchased fitbit and use the bluetooth sync, it got much worse. about 5 or 6 times per day.
So till now there's still not any official workaround for this issue? nor any updates?
