    Noticed the very first flaw with inking on the Go.
    In portrait mode, both the curse and inking jumps 1cm from the left edge where the camera is located, and it is quite terrible.
    Anyone else noticed this?

    <<...Anyone else noticed this?..>>

    ...Just tried this on my Go LTE. In portrait mode, inked right up to the edge of the screen. Repeated all along the edge from top to bottom. Also hovered, looking for cursor jumps.

    No problems or anomalies observed...

    Thanks Steve, it's good to know. TBH, I had my SGo reset last month because some DrawBoard and a couple of apps were force-closing and I don't remember having this problem before that. Could it be a calibration problem?

    Sorry, it should be the right edge where the camera is located

    ...That was the edge I tested. I held my Go so that the camera on the left in portrait and then tested along that same edge...

    Thanks again. Will see if I can find out the cause.

    • Was your Go connected to its AC adapter at the time you observed the problem?
    • Is it possible that one of your fingers (on you other hand) was touching the edge of the screen?
    • Have you ever experienced inking problems before in this location, wherever it was?

    @Steve S,

    [*]Was your Go connected to its AC adapter at the time you observed the problem?
    No, it wasn’t. I’ve tried again now and it’s still bad.
    [*]Is it possible that one of your fingers (on you other hand) was touching the edge of the screen?
    Again, no, I’m using the kickstand, so no contact
    [*]Have you ever experienced inking problems before in this location, wherever it was?
    No, not before I did a reset of the device. I just noticed this a few days ago.

    @nnthemperor , I have seen sort of what you have described with a couple of our employee go units and in both cases the issue was that the digitizer was slightly out of alignment. One came from MS that way and the other had been dropped (even though it wasn't obvious from the case, but the employee admitted it).

    Anyway, the go, much more so than the pro or book is really tightly packed and it wouldn't take much to knock it out of alignment.

    If you have a MS store near you, they have a tool that can detect if that's the issue. In the case of the defective one, MS swapped it in store for me.

    What did you all think of Intel's announcement on the heels of the Apple/Qualcomm settlement - Intel is exiting the 5g modem race?

    Two big shockers, the later obviously a BIG part of the former. And OEM's ony thought Qualcomm had a strangle hold on the market...
