Description smorsi27 2017-03-18 03:03:23 UTC
So, I'm running into this strange scenario where if I'm on a device with OS 7 (Android Nougat) and I set my phone on power safer mode and I launch my app, the splash screen shows up fine but then no content gets rendered after my app launches. 

Normally, there is a slide carousel with static content like an image and some text. But none of that gets rendered on power safer mode. 

Strangely, the app works fine when I switch back to non-power safer mode and the app works fine both in regular mode and power safer mode on Android OS 6 and under. 

I'm wondering what's wrong with OS 7 + power safer mode that's causing my app content to not render properly? 

I'm using Xamarin.Forms 2.1.0.

Can you update to the latest pre-release / release and test again?
Comment 2 Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2017-03-19 21:24:36 UTC
Setting to NEEDINFO until further information on behavior when using the latest release is provided.
Comment 3 smorsi27 2017-03-20 15:38:24 UTC
I can't update to the latest. We want to stay on Xamarin.Forms 2.1.0 until we get a stable build ready when we upgrade. There are other issues in Xamarin.Forms 2.3.3 we must fix first. I can try and give it a go but looking for a fix in 2.1.0.

Can this case be resolved/closed? It was fixed updating the layout.

Closing per Comment 4. Thank you!
