Google play certification for Tab M8 FHD tb-8705f please?

2020-08-06, 0:50 AM

Hi Lenovo,

 

I've bought the chinese market version of the Tab M8 FHD (64GB Flash, 4GB RAM) but netflix and apps won't work as google play protection status is "device not certified"

 

I'm aware the other versions of the Tab M8 FHD are certified (as netflix is installed and works straight out of the box)

 

Could you please advise when the chinese market version, with the extra ram and flash storage, will be certified?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

getting trapped as you are!

 

Did you try a rescue with LMSA and official boot.bmp?

 

I do not have my native language available either, even they say it is "multilangual"......

Hi Lenovo, I have this issue as well. Any word on whether or not this version will be certified?

Hello Lenovo, I also have the problem of the device not being Play Protect certified and being unable to find apps on the Play Store.

Please help!

This sound like the same issue that occurs with the Chinese version of the Tab P11 Pro: the XiaoXin Pad Pro (TB-J706F_PRC). 

 

The only solution (that doesn’t include rooting) I’m aware of is to sideload the Netflix app (and any other apps not showing in the Play store). Please see this thread:

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Android-based-Tablets-and-Phablets/Lenovo-Tab-P11-Pro-TB-J706F-No-Netflix-or-Disney/m-p/5056091?page=1#5229948

 

I suspect the lack of Play Protect Certification is one of the reasons the Chinese versions are significantly cheaper than the international ones. Although, if you live in a region where a model isn’t available then a grey import is the only option. This changes:

 

A “you get what you pay for - you should have bought locally!”

 

to

 

B “er.. you should have bought a rival brand that is available in your country!”

 

If Lenovo are disincentivising grey importing by withholding Play Protect Certification because of Scenario A, then I guess this is sort of fair (at least for those outside of the PRC). Lenovo should work at making the pricing a bit more consistent outside of the PRC though i.e. not selling the same product in Spain for € 100 more than in France.

 

Scenario B is stupid though – if Lenovo want to compete with iPads and Samsung tablets worldwide.

Yeah, I ended up using apkmirror to sideload netflix and disney+ but it's a pain as they go out of date and then....repeat.."eyeroll"

 

More annoyingly the 10 inch tab (with identical specs apart from bigger screen) is now about the same price. I bought Lenovo to avoid this type of grief you get with typical no name chinese tablets...

 

Who knew, eh? lol
