Description Avidan Chen 2016-09-18 12:49:08 UTC
For some reason, when using AndroidClientHandler, and including an "If-Modified-Since" header (as a deliberate intention to save on bandwidth), I am getting an InvalidOperationException (if the resource indeed hasn't changed) with the message: "HTTP Redirection status code NotModified (304) not supported". 

I except to just get a response of 304 without any exceptions.

except = expect

Hi Avidan,

Thank you for taking the time to submit the bug. We are unable to reproduce this issue. Please attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Android project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue. Please also include your complete version information from Visual Studio -> Help -> About Visual Studio -> Copy Information. 

## Additional Information

AndroidClientHandler does mention that "Some HttpClient features/options are not available" and I wonder if this is relevant for an issue like this.
