Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus major issue - micro SD corruption

I am looking at the Huawei MediaPad M3. Looks like a reliable Lenovo-killer.

Cheers

I did considered Huawei M3 but it appears that it can't be used as a normal phone, i.e., you need a handfree or you use speakers when doing phone calls.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus major issue - micro SD corruption

I am having the same problem as everyone else, with a Samsung Evo Plus 64 GB card (60 MB/sec write, 100 MB/sec read).  I am frustrated, because I really like the Tab 4 8 plus.  It is fast enough for browsing, using Box, GMail, running Skype and texting.  I use a Google Fi SIM card and have had no communication issues.  I use exactly the same Samsung 64 GB card in a Tab 4 10 plus and it operates without any issues for about 2 months.  I am undecided on whether to return the Tab 4 8 plus.  It is so much easier to take outside the home, but if I start to fill up the 16 GB it will probably be returned.  Lenovo - If you are monitoring this group, PLEASE tell us whether this is just a software issue in which case you will fix it eventually, or a hardware problem with the 8 inch model.

They are monitoring this forum because they are censoring our comments but they do not want to say what's wrong with this tablet.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus major issue - micro SD corruption

I almost returned the Tab 4 back after reading issues related to SD cards. I also noticed that the SD card corruption issue seemed to be related to SanDisk or Samsung cards, and mostly when formatting as internal storage, which is what I wanted to do as well.

 

However, I came across a suggestion to use a Transcend card instead, in another thread  on this support forum, and so I took a chance with that. I was able to successfully format a Transend card,  32GB microSDHC Class 10 (TS32GUSDU1PE) , for internal storage. Multiple reboots have not corrupted the card so far.

Good news. Thank you for this clear explanation. Has anyone else tried this MicroSDHC card?
