iOS 9.2 voiceover freezing after some time of use?

iOS and iPadOS

Has anyone noticed on 9.2 using an iPhone6s voiceover will suddenly start to stop responding for a couple of seconds and then respond only to start not responding after a few seconds of normal use, you have to respring the device?

Happens to me all the time after updating to iOS 9.2
The only thing that resolves it for me, is doing a hard reset with holding the sleep and home buttons down untill the phone restarts...
Very frustrating. Really hope Apple fixes this in the next update.

It's just so annoying. Especially with the Siri Male Enhanced voice. It reads a sentence but cuts out some of the words.
EX: I ate an apple.
Siri Male Voice Would Say: ... ate ... apple.

Pressing power button still not tell you the time. It work for several days but no longer. So is 9.3 beta out? Hope they fix it.

Hello, I spoke to Apple today concerning this issue hopefully I'll hear back from them soon I think it is important for all voiceover users to get this issue resolve. Given the fact that I'm using an iPhone 6 and it makes it difficult for me to navigate with Alex with it freezing almost every time. Hope Apple response back

This freezing came out of nowhere, I've had my apple watch for almost two weeks and all of a sudden VO on my iPhone 6s plus freezes, but VO is perfectly fine on my 5-S. I've restored the 6-s plus, but that didn't help.

I have also noticed this freezing attitude with my iPhone6 but only in the facebook app. That too if I get to land on suggested video. Lol this may be peculiar. But this is what I have noticed.

It freezes on my iPad Mini. The last freeze happen when I was in the app store looking at an app. I can't move. It double-taps something, launches unwanted buttons and so on? Has anyone experienced this?

Yes I have same problem. I have to restart by doing power home to restart. That last works for a while and it comes back. Hope those who are testing beta iOS 9.2.1 do not see this problem anymore.
