Mage - No Crits with Elemental only Weapons?

I noticed that my mage never gets a critical hit when wielding weapons that only do elemental damage, e.g. the Tesla Emitter or the Rod of Incineration. He's level 25 so I took him to kill a ton of scrubs to make sure. As soon as I switched to a weapon that does at least some normal damage, e.g. the Branch of the Holy Tree or the Wand of Power, I started getting crits at the expected rate. Has anyone else had this problem? I assume it is a bug, otherwise the critical rate of the elemental-only weapons would be zero. I am playing the Android version.

Thanks for posting. I'll explore that issue this weekend.
Current working theory:

Pure elemental damage can crit, but can't Instant-kill with Massive Critical.
Mixed staves / wands don't get elemental damage increased during a Critical hit.
The game process enemy resistance in an odd manner with hit with a pure elemental attack, that gives the impression of a critical damage.

I spend less time with Mages so not as familiar with their oddities.
