I just bought an 81F5 (Lenovo Ideapad 330S-15IKB D) laptop with 8GB RAM and 500GB HDD.
1.) Is it possible to upgrade this to 16GB RAM (is the RAM soldered in this model or is it replaceable?)
2.) Is it possible to change the hard drive to a 500GB SSD
3.) Can I get it done through Lenovo itself
4.) Will my warranty become void?
Thanks a lot, guys!

Welcome to the Community Forums.
It would help us get the details of your motherboard if it has soldered ram if you can share the machine number / MTM (ex. 81F5003HTX) from the sticker or to check here.
General platform specifications:
12GB max / 2133MHz or 2400MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, 4GB soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket
I would initially assume that your motherboard have a soldered (non replaceable) 4GB and with one slot containing 4GB DDR4 that you can change with 8GB for 12 GB total.
You can also replace current SATA HDD to SSD.
This can be done through Lenovo service center as is also advised when upgrading against warranty in India. You may need to call technical support first.
I hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes.
