    Default Lots of issues with my new Padfone X. What is your experience so far?

    I got my Padfone X on Monday and have had quite a few issues over the last four days. I was wondering if any of you are having similar problems. Here is what I have seen so far:

    1) Bluetooth has issues staying connected. My record so far is one hour. After a while bluetooth just disconnects and I have to turn it off and back on again to get it to work.

    2) When I connect to my car's bluetooth, I get the voice connection immediately, but the media connection never establishes. Like in #1, I have to turn off bluetooth and turn it on again before voice and media connections will establish.

    3) I changed my wallpaper on the phone and lock screen to one of the other stock wallpapers. Ever since then, the phone crashes outright when I plug it in to the Padfone Station. The tablet will display a message stating "Unfortunately, the process com.android.systemui has stopped" and locks up. It will not respond to any touch commands. If I eject the phone and change the wallpaper, I can then insert it in to the tablet and it works. However, the very next time I insert it, the systemui crash returns. I basically have to rotate through the stock wallpapers every time I want to use the phone in the tablet which is very odd.

    4) The Padfone Station will not wake up from sleep. I have to eject the phone if I want to use the device after it goes in to power save. I tried disabling the Smart Saving mode, but I get the same results.

    I am in the process of resetting my phone to factory defaults to see if the issues persist. I may have a lemon on my hands. Are you guys seeing any of the above issues? If so, my Padfone days may be over. If it is just me, I'll do a warranty exchange.

    Thanks,

    Don

    I finally broke down an did a factory rest. That fixed #3 and #4, but the Bluetooth issues persist even after the reset. Anyone else experiencing Bluetooth issues?

    I haven't had a single one of these problems. I couldn't install anything after I rooted it with towelroot, but I made a mistake in the rooting process. After a factory reset it's all good again. As for you Bluetooth issue. I want to say it's hardware, but given the phone has barely been on the market a week, wait for an update or see if you can swap it at your AT&T store. Best thing to do is to email ASUS support.

    I'm getting the system UI crashes every day now. It's really annoying. Formatting the phone isn't helping. I hope an update will be out soon.

    I tried 2 Padfone X with Panasonic Link2cell 2013 and 2014 Bluetooth handset systems and the PadFone X always lost the incoming phone audio at some point. Switch call back to PadFone X and then handset to recover. Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5 never had a problem. I really miss the PadFone station, but the phone just didn't cut it as a cell phone.
