As an update to status: last few weeks I used Yoga without microSD, and the experience was somehow better regarding ONLY to lag. Last week I had some flights scheduled, and I reinserted the microSD card with some media for "the road". Lag is back, as expected, but I managed to use it solely for local media play (with or without projector).
Second worst part is multi-tasking (I wish!), practically non-existent. If - during media play - I switch to other app (or even to homescreen, just to check weather for example), I cannot just switch back to file I previously played in media app, I have to reopen the file all along. Valid for almost any combination of actions I was doing.
I quit using browser (chrome, firefox) on Yoga some time ago, is annoying and frustrating. I prefer to use my (newly cracked screen) HTC One M8 for web browsing than bigger display on Yoga.
So, apart from some reduced lag (but still present), I did not find any benefit in removing the microSD from Yoga's slot.
Waiting for a good solution from Lenovo. In the meantime, my beard has grown a little more longer.

Hi, I've been reading these threads with interest.
I bought my Yoga in the UK in January and loved it. Whilst I'm not a heavy user, I still noticed some of the memory issues, particularly while browsing, but wasn't affected too badly.
However since I applied a recent update of 54mb, my main issue now is the screen randomly locking (going to the lock screen, not freezing) this can happen a lot making the device unusable. I have performed a couple of factory resets but am still getting the screen locking.
My system details are:-
Patch level 2016-03-01
Kernel version - 3.14.37-x86_64-L1-R415-ga0ec340
Build number - S100330_160328
Going to see if I can reach Lenovo tomorrow, but has anyone else seen the locking issue? Like others people are wowed with the tablet, but I warn everyone off buying one because of the firmware issues!

Keyboard keeps on restarting.. Everything is lagging.. Barely useable.. Foreground app kills itself.. Will there be any update which will solve all the issues?
Also those who rooted and decripted the device, how is it working now?
