Re:M8 tablet android 10 update

I received build TB-8705F_S300043_210127_BMP for my Lenovo TB-8705F: widgets still not updating. Shouldn't issues be known by now? Why does take forever to correct them?

@steam thanks very much for the report. I'll know not to accept that build. Much appreciated.

I 've received build TB-8705F_S300043_210127_BMP for the Lenovo TB-8705F three days ago. I don't use many widgets. But my weather widget (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.difer.weather) on my homescreen works flawlessly now without any battery optimization and the clock time is updated correctly. Most of my app notifications are working without any problems. Only with one of my apps (ARTE app) I'm missing a regular notification in the evening. I have to investigate that and going to find out the reason. Maybe a factory reset will help you out...

 

But I have two other problems with the tab M8 FHD :

Since the update on android 10 I've been experiencing a display problem of my notification drawer. The drawer is'nt filling out the whole width of my screen. It is compressed to a smaller width and font size seems to be buggy too. The only thing, that helped me out is scaling the width in the developer options and an additional font size app.

Screen issue

Second problem is missing sound of the Lock screen event though the sound is activated in settings. Could anyone of you check this on your tab? Pls give me an answer, if you hear the sound...

@Ala_Lenovo 

 

It's now nearly three weeks since you posted your last reply, and whilst I appreciate your update, surely you must now be able to give us some indication as to an ETA for an update to fix all these problems on the 8505X model?  I'm not sure which is more frustrating - not getting the update or not knowing when it will arrive.  Are we talking days, weeks, months?  We are completely in the dark here!

@steam there is a good point made below by @Trainspotter . Notwithstanding the errors in Lenovo's builds, Android 10 is very aggressive about battery optimisation, and it is quite likely that for your widgets to work properly you may have to set their apps to Not Optimised for battery optimisation. Have you tried that?

Are you getting notifications with that 210127 build?

I have seen many people here, as well as myself, have the battery optimizations either completely turned off, or individual apps' optimization turned off, with no change in lack of notifications.  I have tried both - it is not battery optimization that is the problem.  I also notice that ONLY as long as an app is still running in the background (shown in recent apps screen), I will get notifications - any other time, I will ONLY get Google-created app notifications.  This is definitely not what Android works like, and is a problem that needs to be resolved.  I have had my tablet for over a month and it is basically crippled by being unable to be used in the manner in which any other tablet is usable.

@garrisonclark was that supposed to be a response to my question to @steam, or just a random expression of rage? The latter is understandable, however it is no way contributing an answer to my question because you do not say what device or build you have. My question was aimed at understanding the difference between @Trainspotter who has TB-8705F_S300043_210127_BMP and says "... my weather widget ... works flawlessly now without any battery optimization and .. most of my app notifications are working without any problems" and @steam who also has TB-8705F_S300043_210127_BMP and says "widgets still not updating" but has not given a status for notifications. 

 

If you would read my question again you will note that I (and @Trainspotter ) am talking about battery optimisation with respect to widgets. You have answered with respect to interactions between battery optimisation and notifications. Nobody claimed that battery optimisation may affect notifications, so your refutation of that particular strawman argument is irrelevant. 

 

I have rolled my M8 tablet back to Android 9, and I will not accept an update until I am sure that the notification issue is fixed, because like you I regard that as a showstopper. Even in Android 9, where the notifications are working just fine, I did need to turn off battery optimisation to get all the widgets working. Hence my question. I wish you well with your issues.

Hi all,

 

A fix was already released for the model TB-8705F. The new system version is: TB-8705F_USR_S300043_2101271807_V9.56_BMP_ROW. If you already received this fix, please share your feedback about it on the forum.

 

Fixes for models TB-8505X and TB-8505F are still not released, but they should be released by the end of March. 

 

Best regards,

Ala
