Hi all,

 

I didn't receive the ETA for a fix for the M8 tablets yet, but I know that the team is working on an update for these models too. I collected all your feedback from this thread and forwarded it to the product team. I also inquired when we can expect fixes for M8.

 

I will let you know once I'll have some news about this.

 

Best regards,

Ala

@ Ala_Lenovo

 

Thank you for your feedback and your help with this issue. I have been following this and other related threads for a few weeks now, having purchased two Tab M8 devices (TB-8505F).

 

I have kept them running Android 9 for now, as I don't want to experience reduced functionality, but it's reassuring to know that there will be a fix coming in the near future.

 

Such a shame that Lenovo's version of Android 10 was not tested properly before release to these devices. It is now in their interest to get the software working correctly before it hurts their reputation. In the limited tablet market, I believe these devices offer great value for money, but only if they work properly.

Lenovo Tab M8 TB-8505F Android 10

 

My first post. I've just bought my tablet. It came with Android 9 Pie but in the setup kept installing updates until it got to Android 10. Thankfully I've not experienced any real problems yet except one app I use "Android Auto" has not yet been updated to run in Android 10. Also "Backup to Google Drive" does not work (always shows as waiting to backup) which I understand is another Android version problem.

After an era of using competitors brand I switched to Team Lenovo due to delayed and missed notifications just to run into even more problems. The widgets are frozen, notifications are delayed and the battery is draining in front of my eyes. This message costed me 3% lol

I only have this tablet Lenovo TB-8705F Android 10 for a few days and seems like Im gonna have to return it to to the seller.

None of those problems if you roll back to Android 9. But if you can return it, that's probably the safest option. It's a pity, because there are few alternatives with the form factor and high res.

Marty, I've no problems with battery drain. Even after playing with this tablet all day and leaving it  (accidently) on all night the battery charge has hardly changed. How do you mean the widgets have frozen?

@17Rachel17 what is your system level? AFAIK everyone running Android 10 on 8705F has the same problem with background processes, and Lenovo have not yet offered a fix on this model. Have you had a fix for your 8505F?
