@P40 

All bugs my man. That tablet worked flawlessly on Android 9, let alone Android 9 is awesome overall.

Now we just have to wait for a fix, should arrive within a month.

I confirm the same issues for Lenovo M8 TB-8505XS: hopefully the referred patch will concern this model too.

 I began to think I was loosing my mind until I began to read this forum!   Sooo glad I didn't go forward and integrate my sd card with it.  I might have created a brick.

 

I bought an M8 in Nov and was getting aquatinted with 9 (loved my tab!!!) and then it updated to10.  My M8 is now really buggy.  Slow, freezes, fails to respond- total nightmare. Totally useless to me right now.

 

Will they notify us when they get this fixed or must we make loud protests to get it fixed?.

Some versions have gotten an update already. Let's wait for our turn. The 8505x and f models have pretty much the same bugs as all the other tablets have.

@Ala_Lenovo mate, please also look at the battery consumption. Strangely it started to eat about 4% overnight, something like from 43% to 39%. Although today it ate just 1% from 96% to 95% in about 4 hours. Dunno, maybe I'm overreacting, but still, have a look into the system while making a fix for our models. Cheers.

The automatic update to Android 10 of the Lenovo Tab M8 tablets that we have purchased renders them completely inoperable for our software.  Normally, we install a Micro SD card in the card slot which contains a local web of HTML files with links to hundreds of appliance repair documents and videos as part of the product we market.  The FlashFox Pro browser was used under Android 4.4.2 through Android 7.0 to navigate to the home page of the local web.  Under Android 9.0, FlashFox Pro was no longer able to create an icon on the Android Home Screen.  That required the user to select a bookmark to reach the home page of our web, which was inconvenient, but acceptable.  FlashFox Pro will not execute under Android 10 at all.  The automatic update to Android 10 is forced upon the user with very little warning of its consequences.  I would like an option to be able to uninstall Android 10, and then re-install Android 7.0 or Android 9.

 

Moreover, if the local web on the SD card is copied to internal memory, and then Google Chrome is used to view the web, the pages do not display properly.  A web server on the tablet is not being utilized because it slows the tablet incredibly.  This is the stupidity of every change made to the Android operating system since Android 7 !!!  The security protection feature that makes the SD card off-limits to most applications is ridiculous.

@Ala_Lenovo I confirm the battery draining, just ate 3% in 14 minutes, ridiculous. At such a rate it means that this d a m n update will steal about 15 minutes off an hour use.

 

P.S. W T F with words bleeping? Treating us like a kids here? Afraid of the words? Your Chinese overloads made you censor "bad" words, even a word d a m n? Preposterous and pathetic, Lenovo, preposterous and pathetic.

 

P.P.S. Even W T F? Ahahahahah, kindergarten.

OTA update yesterday. The description mentioned gestiure with Android 10 and dark mode I think. Notifications and widgets problems are not solved after this update for me. Not a fix. Just an update...

@Nielda71100 strangely, widgets work fine for me, but other problems weren't fixed at all.
