app.EnterText not working on some Android devices

when I'm trying to use app.EnterText to enter a zip code(90001), on some devices(Xiaomi MI 2), it will changed to 09708, is the because of the keyboard type?, how can I change that, is there any work around?

    @weihuiwu Is this a run you are doing locally or is this in the Xamarin Test Cloud?

    A possible work around is to Invoke setText, like:
    app.Query(e=>e.Id("myZipField").Invoke("setText", "90001"));

    This is not the same as having a user type the text. For example, if there are event listeners, they may not be fired.

    We recommend turning off all keyboard auto completions etc. when testing.

    Thanks, both of you, it turns out to be the zip code is auto configured by the location detection service, and also android devices running Android 4.1.* can no accept EnterText.

    it's an app defect, not from android os
