I'll note the code to do this is already present but has been skipped when running on phablet devices (anything running with click). Work needs to be done to support phablet devices and have them use the same process.

This is quite frustrating in that every time I run autopilot tests on my device I lose my entire music collection and have to put it all back again. We shouldn't do that.
