Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8" LTE Android 6 upgrade

Hi there,

 

I was just wondering if there are any news about the Marshmallow upgrade for Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8" LTE version? I bought in November 2016 and I'm having issues since the first day. Apps keep crashing and closing, and it's really really slow (probably because of the 1GB RAM). I would have loved to pay more for an extra 1 or 2GB but there was no 2GB model with 8 inch screen. I really regret buying this tablet and I'm just hoping that the Marshmallow ugrade would solve some of the issues! 

I keep checking the Android Upgrade Matrix, first it said there will be an upgrade in Dec 2016, then it was changed to "To Be Confirmed", last month it said "April 2017", now it says "Dec 2016" again! I'm really confused now! I keep checking the OTA update but I'm getting a big nothing! Smiley Sad

 

Is there any hope for Android 6 for the LTE version?

Thank you so much!

Hello Rwlnd

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

It looks like that this is yet to be released for this unit, however, there is a beta version available, just join the discussion on this post, and Andy_Lenovo should be able to help you out.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Thank you! I sent a message to Andy too and he told me the same. I don't mind that there is no BETA, I just hope there will be a final Android 6 release for the LTE version too sometime soon!

 

Kind regards,

Roland

Is there any news regarding the YT3-850L/M update or bug fixes? The current one is from November 12, 2015! http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/hu/hu/products/TABLETS/YOGA-SERIES/YOGA-TAB-3-8/ZA0B/0000BG/downloads/DS...

Is there going to be one?

Re: Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8" LTE Android 6 upgrade

Hi,

I'd like to repeat my question above! And I'd like an answer.

Last weekend I took the tablet on a trip with me and I was so angry with it... I was playing music on it and I was also running a speedcam app and the tablet went completely insane! Two opened apps were too much, it couldn't handle them! It couldn't even play the music without stuttering.

Is the Android 6 with fixes going to be released soon or can I bring the tablet back and ask for my money back? (I'll seriously do that, I'm not kidding.)

Hi there,

 

I was just wondering again if there are any news about the Marshmallow upgrade for Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8" LTE version (Telenor Hungary)? I bought the tablet in November 2016 and I'm having issues since the first day. Apps keep crashing and closing, and it's really really slow. I really regret buying this tablet and I'm just hoping that the Marshmallow ugrade would solve some of the issues! I'm not asking for Oreo, just a simple Android 6.

 

Is there any hope for Android 6 for the LTE version?

Thanks for nothing!

Re: Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8" LTE Android 6 upgrade

Már december óta kint van rá a frissítés az oldaluk szerint és volt is a kezemben 6.0-val futó db. de a telenoros az cseszik frissíteni és egyelőre nem találok rá módot hogyan kellene, lehet a szolgáltató hibás ebben, mivel az ő saját átalakított firmware-jük és ameddig nem méltóztatnak kiadni az újat (ha egyáltalán foglalkoznak vele) addig csak talán kerülő úton lehet, amire nem leltem még rá.

 

Since December, the update has been updated according to their site and there was also a 6.0 in my hand. but the telenoros will not be able to update and still can not find the way they should be, the service provider may be wrong because their own transformed firmware and as long as they do not deserve to release the new one (if they deal with it at all) can only be bypassed I did not find it.
