Hi

Yes it is, but i found out why charging takes that long. Take a fat USB
cable to charge, he's charged in 3 hours now.

Further, this tablet works fine

Lenovo 4.4.2 is problematic. Wifi on but not working with browser and some other programs reqesting internet connection like sma portal (p.v.) . Opera works fine with wifi. I dont know what is the problem with wifi and browser.

 

Lenovo 4.4.2 gps does not work. I have tried everything to make gps work but gps is absent.

 

I have installed back 4.2.2 and gps works fine so does browser and no problems with wifi. Youtube search for the guide and the firmware link.

 

I guess lenovo did not provide gps drivers with 4.4.2 firmware. This is a disappointment. 

 

 

I have a A3500-FL lenovo tablet which is excellent only with firmwarw 4.2.2. I used gps today while driving and gps works as advertised. Lenovo you are a disappointment. I hope you produce a fix.

This is the youtube demonstration hich explains how to do it.  http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=S5NWsm07hXI

 

In the same site you will find the link. The A3500-FL link with 4.2.2 firmware is the following:

https://cloud.mail.ru/public/048cb4823abb/A3500-FL_A422_01_15_140402_ROW.rar

 

The link has all programs needed so you dont need anything else. Good luck.

 

In the same site there is also firmware 4.4.2. This firmware removes gps and looses internet connection frequently. I dont recommend kit kat upgrade. I have downgraded my lenovo to 4.2.2 because of these 2 problems after the OTA firmware upgrade to kit kat (4.4.2).
