Microsoft, so cold from me.
Microsoft customer service is incredibly bad. Bought a tablet from them a year ago described on their website as "ready to upgrade to Windows 10" then got laughed at and told I should have bought something better when I called Microsoft for assistance.
Only managed to upgrade due to help of HUKDers.
Tablet then broke, Acer "fixed it" but put win8.1 back on it, and Microsoft's guidance on how to upgrade again has bricked it. Now they're not responding at all.
Probably will have to issue a court claim to get restitution.
Amazing that in this day and age a giant like Microsoft can be so backward.

No offence mate but Acer claimed it would upgrade not MS, Acer let you down not Microsoft, This is Microsoft hardware its a whole different ball game support wise, if you buy cheap (i.e acer) don't expect decent support from them (its acers job to support their products not MS)


No offence, you're just wrong. I bought it from the Microsoft store where their ad stated about the upgrade.

​Complete opppsite experience for me. I contacted them about a single stuck pixel in the bottom left of the screen and they offered to replace it straight away. Most companies don't replace a product for a single pixel, let alone not in a central area.
Bought the m3 version a few weeks ago for my wife who is doing a university course and needed a "laptop". The only issue we have had is the time to load patches, which does take a noticeably longer time than the desktop i5.

For everything else it is perfect (that said have yet to try image editing). She has taken it to all day workshops without power issues (thought not in use 100% it more "real world").

Q: Is this an actual Samsung tablet??
A: I am sorry, my account was hacked, I did not list these
Of course it was .. "my dog ate my homework" ..
Actually I would bet it was. That's exactly what ebay scammers do when they hack an account, list a quantity of stupidly cheap items for quick sale then they disappear
so you "hack" an ebay account to what sell cheap items, which would then get removed - how does that profit the scammers ..

the money gets paid by paypal into their dodgy account which they likely then buy bitcoins or similar with. i don't actually know for sure as i'm not actually a "hacker" ...why the speech marks btw? sure phishing etc is like script kiddie level "hacking" but the speech marks are a bit much, a hacked account is a common phrase even if it is a misnomer to some degree

philjstephenson

I can't see how much feedback they have, both links are dead now. Assuming they have a lot though why would they jeopardise that for a bunch of £5 transactions that they clearly cant fulfil and they can't do a runner with the money if they're a big seller as they will of course be verified with PayPal and eBay. Also having a lot of feedback (ie. experience) may make one less likely to be hacked by phishing sites etc, however it does not make you impervious and it actually makes you a bigger target as your account will have extremely high or entirely lifted selling restrictions. Also, it requires the seller to actively educate themselves on account security and maintain a decent standard of it, which is not always the case.

Good deal, BUT

Unless you will use the pen functionality a lot, save a bit and buy an ultrabook like the Asus UX305. Surface's are amazing but if you don't use the pen then buying an ultrabook will mean a better keyboard, cheaper price, better battery life. Most importantly, it will have more ram. The m3 surface only has 4GB which really isn't much for Windows 10 (ram is used for opening several applications/tabs at once).

As for the nonsense about the m3, ignore it. The m3 is really quite capable, it uses less power and he's the real advantage DOESN'T REQUIRE A FAN. So the surface/Asus ux305 with the m3 are completely silent, unlike the i5/i7 versions. For browsing, office tasks and movies etc this is more than enough. If you are photoshopping/video editing/gaming then yes you will need more grunt but you should already know that.

I did a ton of research before buying so feel free to ask any questions, and have actually used the products in question.

good device but the M3 processor is seriously underpowered, recommend getting the i5 one
It's anything but "seriously underpowered". It's on par with a Intel Core i5-2410M with most tasks.
Only go with the i5/i7 if you actually know you need that power. The M3 is a fine processor for a lot of people.
​the i5 2410 was released 5 years ago so it's still not powerful as a modern i5

Of course it isn't. But it's not "seriously underpowered". That's just nonsense.

If you want a modern CPU, then it's on par with the i3-5010U. Certainly capable. It's also incredibly power efficient, which is exactly what the m3 range is aimed at.

This isn't an old Atom. The m3 range are fine at what they aim to do.

We use Surfaces at work. The m3 has no issues with day to day tasks. Every office based application we use (Office, email, web, etc.), runs on them fine.
If you're doing something more powerful (Photoshop for example), then sure, move up the ladder. But the m3 isn't underpowered for what it sets out to do.

Dreadful deal.
I've a 32GB ipad which I bought for £220 about 4 years ago. Admittedly not 4G but it's just so underpowered compared to my LG G4 now. I'd say it's worth around the £100 mark.
Probably better going for something that is still supported like the Air1/2 IMO, personally I think the iPad 4 was lucky to get support and suspect that will go next cycle with all other 32bit based devices.
The iPad 3 is and was a great iPad but Apple have totally ruined it with the new updates - part of their planned obsolescence that they deny. For what the OP said it will be fine but even my work Air 1st gen feels seriously slow compared to the Air 2 and Pro I have at home. The iPad 4 is noticeably quicker but probably not worth the extra £40. You can get a good used Air 1 for around £200 at the moment and that has the A7 processor not the A6X (iPad 4) or A5X (iPad 3).
I wish I could sell my iPad 3 32gb for anything like this much money. You get offered £60 if you're lucky so they must be making a mint on this :(

bought this from gearbest and it was faulty. had to pay your own postage back to China that cost about £20 and not refundable. the whole refund process for the tablet took nearly half a year.

Hi,firstly,we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience brought to you
As for the return postage fee( £20 ), it can be refunded based on our new "warranty and return" policy
http://www.gearbest.com/about/warranty-and-return.html
And i am willing to give you a coupon code which has the same value (£20)

Could you please kindly let me know your order number for re-checking ?

I'm finding it really hard to find a tablet which is on par with my 3 year old Xperia Z3 in terms of screen quality (> 290dpi) and speed (2GHz quadcore + 2GB ram), atleast 8 inches in size, has a 4G/LTE support and IS NOT a samsung.
My desire seems to be impossible.
I would say! Probably only Sony's latest tablet would be an improvement, just out of interest whats wrong with Samsung tablets?

I don't like the physical buttons, which is against new Android design (os comes with in built home, options and back button) and TouchWiz. I was one of the early adopters of Galaxy S and S3. Moved on to sony after that.

Sony's latest tablet would cost me my 2 arms and a leg. :(

lol. I'm the same as you only I'm using the iPad right now instead. Quite funny really as I expected to enjoy this more due to it suiting my needs better for work stuff but the iPad just happens to be handier, lighter and easier to hold/carry so it's the first thing I pick up to do my everyday stuff. Maybe I will finally get round to doing some work on the Surface Pro 4 when I get the keyboard. lol
Oh yeah, you definitely need the keyboard! Kills me that they don't include one and charge as much as they do for one. Having to add an extra ~£100 to the price though. urgh! It delayed my purchase by well over a year until I was able to get a great deal on one. With the ageing Macbook lineup and improvement with Win10 they could be really eating into Apples market, but alas no, just like Google and their Nexus devices, they seem to like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

It isn't outdated. Let alone having the Marshmallow update, there were tablets released after this one with lesser spec. So chronology isn't very relevant.

Has anyone ordered/ received it yet?

I've ordered 2 electronic items from gearbest.
1. My £65 in-car dash video camera stopped loop recording and would randomly turn off or freeze. (This was a higher end price point on their site so if they can't get this one right...)
2. A small action video camera to take on holiday, jumping in the pool/swimming in the sea use. This one only stored 5recorded videos so all of the whole holidays videos were overwritten by 5 quick videos on the last day.
I extensively checked and was able to repeat the faults- not human error. Terrible, untested software.
Neither fault was detected within 3 days, postage back was prohibitive. Gearbest customer service replied by email in one of those conversations that doesn't go anywhere. Twice bitten next time I'll spend a bit more for something that is guaranteed to last.
No. 2 there sounds like a fake memory card - those cheap ones from china often are labelled as 32/64/128GB but actually only have 1 or 2 GB capacity and they just overwrite the same 1 or 2gb space again and again. Have you tried a different card in it?

Haha, this is an official Samsung one from Amazon that used to store all of my photos/music/stuff on my phone- about 28GB worth until I got a 64GB so I could use this card in this situation. It's not fake, neither are the others. I fill all to capacity when I receive them- copy them back to pc and then test what's been copied back. Thanks for reply though.
Windows operating system in general doesn't acknowledge other operating systems such as Linux or android. Its all me me me. That's why on any device with more than 1 operating system, if you reset the device, windows automatically assumes that it is the one & only operating system and wipes out any boot portions/info of the other software.
Does anyone know if they do a similar spec tablet without Windows 10? Only want it for the Android side!

For that price, I think I'd get a phablet. So much more useful. There are some around that price. IMO, it's ridiculous to have Windows 10 on such a small tablet as well as android. Windows 10 is bad enough on a full sized pc!
I've got a similar spec'd tablet and Windows 10 is not nearly as slow on it as you might think. Bigger issues are simply the suitability of Windows 10 for tablets and touchscreens in general.
I wasn't actually meaning the speed, just the desktop clutter of Windows post 7

Agreed, they're all a bit of a hotchpotch!

I used one for a bit earlier in the year, it's a bit sluggish, and the software isn't the slickest around. The screen is OK, not brill, but it's well made, and has good sound, as you might expect with it having 4 speakers. Oddly enough for a tablet, the camera is decent.

You mean this cheap Chinese tablet isn't very good? Who'd a thunk it...


​I never said it wasn't good, I merely pointed out some weaknesses. Huawei are a decent brand and will only get better.

Thanks OP. I've owned 7" ver for somewhile. IMO really good Windows tablets. Been waiting for good offer on 10" & for me here it is @ £79.50 brand new for "leather" backed version. Picked up last one at Chafford Hundred (Thurrock?) first thing this morning. First time I've been successful on one of these device chases :-) Keyboard not included (I have one). Confirm it is 2GB RAM with 32GB storage Internal & one year office 365. BTW x3 7" also available at reduced £79.00


​Excellent! Glad I hadn't bought the last one and at least one other person benefited from this.

Had similar good news yesterday from Amazon on pen delivery date.
Received mine today. Went for 256gb nvme model for 443ish with shipping. I'm quite pleasefunny with the device, came practically brand new with sealed accessories and keyboard. Ordered pen from amazon for 29ish with nus discount. Delivery was 1-2 months but my estimated delivery date changed today to 27th September, so guess I'll get it within a week.

Overall, I'm very happy with the device. Nice screen (not 4k but imo for this size full hd is more than enough, keyboard is good too (not as good as my macbook pro bur still good), annoying as no full usb port only usb c, but I rarely use it anyway, can't comment on battery. Really wanted to try windows as been a mac user for past few years with windows 7 being the last version of Windows I use. So far I have to admit I like it, definitely keeping it instead of ipad air 2 it replaces (hard to really compare the 2), anybody else received theirs already?

I highly recommend the seller but not this 2-in-1 unless you can live with its shortcomings.
Other than the question over battery life, what other shortcomings specifically?

I have the 7350 and disappointed with the 7275, they seem to have taken as many steps forward as they have back particularly with the dock - given the poor batterylife on the tablet, it's a shame there isn't a keyboard with a battery, an adjustable hinge and full size USB ports. I like the Dell 2 in 1 design where the tablet becomes a laptop when docked rather than the Surface design which can't really be used on a laptop and needs more flat space to work with.

Glad I bit when I did as the price went back up pretty quick. I always liked the idea of the shield, for a couple of reasons. 1,its a **** hot wee device, and 2, I have a 15yo pc gamer who will make use of it too... He's on his pc 24/7 when he's not in school, so would only really use this in bed at night for stuff.
I have the Samsung galaxy tab s, which I think, again, is a cracking tablet and has served us both well- we kinda share them,he will watch YouTube vids in bed at night on that and I'll use it for streaming to chromecast etc (not needed now due to new Android box) as I use my phone for everything, and him, his pc... Anyway, had a blast on the k1 as has my lad, and we are both impressed!

Took a chance on this tablet a few months ago. At the time it was £219 on Amazon. I know that's a good £40/50 dearer than the multitude of Chinese sites that stock this, but wanted the comfort in knowing if there was anything wrong I could send it straight back to Amazon............. Which is exactly what I did.
It was quick enough (compared to my original Motorola Xoom, which I'm still using!), and I loved the dual OS aspect, but unfortunately I couldn't get pass the screen sensitivity, and slight audible buzz coming from it. The screen is that of a cheap Chinese phone/Tab as opposed to a Samsung/ HTC/ Apple premium screen.
Also, surprising heavy after awhile.
Was it the touch sensitivity aspect Did you take the screen protector off?
Tried with and without protector, it was the same. Sometimes would have to retouch 2/3 times. Great shame really, as it could be a good tablet given the price.

hmmm do I get this. A chinese tablet which is bound to have defects, no warranty, probably some dodgy windows install (perhaps chinese), dodgy power cable, slow, not laminated screen, update of software not supported. The acer alpha at very is tempting but 3 times the price, only an i3 and poor battery.

Note: This item supports dual OS (Windows 10 + Android 5.1), but it needs to be rooted by users

So it's possible but likely a bit of work
ditto. windows 10 and android would be a top buy
Shame it's RemixOS only.
Ideally full Windows/Android dual would be a bargain

not sure about this but I had a Chuwi VI8 and the wifi connectivity is terrible. mine was dual boot so had windows 10 as well as android. if you did manage to connect to the Wi-Fi it'd usually disconnect after an hour and had to always reset the router to reconnect. totally put me off all Chuwi products

The review I posted mentioned the WiFi issue with previous models but confirmed that with this one it is fine.

Yaaaay. Did it. Reset the tablet. No progs other than Virtual Clone Drive to install the ISO. Used the Media Creation Tool and Win 10 ISO from MS. No idea why USB/SD would not work.
​you done it without USB or SD card?
Not entirely. It took a while to get the tablet to play nice. I spent about 15-16 hours on it yesterday and my options got fewer and fewer. I simply could not free up enough space on the tablet to go the adaptive technologies upgrade route - which is a Win 10 upgrade aimed at people with disabilities (though MS simply does not check). At no time did the 'not enough space' message come with an option to use off-device storage. I also could not do a fresh install by USB or SD. I was tearing my hair out.
Reset the tablet, again. Uninstalled every last program I could. I was down to just Epic Browser and Virtual Clone Drive (freeware) on the desktop. I used Media Creation Tool to put to Win 10 on a USB attached through a three-port OTG adapter. Rebooted. The .exe on the ISO showed up as a clickable option within VCD and it was just a case of clicking the .exe and crossing my fingers. I did not think it would work, but it did. Install took about 40 minutes. Update took longer. The microSD card slot wasn't recognised but I fixed that with nige's post containing the Realtek driver. Thanks for that - it's a real pain hunting down the right ones.
The effort is so worth it. Windows 10 looks and feels massively better than Win 8.1. Clearly either the ISO route is still free (but MS is keeping quiet about it) or Win 10 has been on my device before, registered with MS but removed during the refurb process. At no point was I ever asked for a product key.
Just updated to Windows 10, my approach was a bit different, I put the mediacreationtool executable within the USB stick and installed the ISO on, after that I plugged it in the tablet, went to the USB dir and opened the setup.exe within the ISO and just installed Windows 10 from there without any third party ISO software. Even without the fancy OTG wire thus installed without charging as I started with 100% after an hour or so after when it finished it came to 66% battery.
All in all went good and got a bit scared when I first got into windows 10 and found it laggy, after a restart it just needed to install it's drivers.
BTW my windows.old folder was in C driver after.

I just put an SD card in, downloaded the mediacreationtool onto the tablet, ran it, chose update this computer, and when it eventually said not enough space i clicked use external drive (The SD Card). I believe it just uses that to house the instalation / old windows files.
just like to add I have finished updating and have not got any driver issues since the start

So it all worked with using a USB stick with just the 17mb MediaCreationTool.exe in it? Thought I'd have to download the ISO and make the USB a bootable ISO or something
Edit: Oh you created an ISO through the mediacreationtool and used the VCD app to make it a bootable disk (ISO)?
BTW where does the backup (rollback Windows 8.1) files store? in the USB?

Just ordered :-) Anyone know if you can actually take it higher than 64GB with a MicroSD card, or is that really the limit?
You can, but it will only read 64GB :) Sorry, but a great tablet, and the screen quality is superb.
Cheers for that - It really is superb isn't it. The screen is just glorious, and the battery life is nuts.

many thanks OP. John Lewis have confirmed price match. Having owned a few tablets over the years I'm of the opinion this tablet is great value for money. The battery life is insane. screen is vivid and you can add additional storage. Hard to fault
Had mine for a few days now and ditto on everything you said - Love it!!!!

Android or a iPad for a 5 year old girl?

Millward84, if you did buy this tablet while it was in stock, and you are buying it for a child, I would really recommend this case for it.

Bobj for Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70, A10-70F and Lenovo Tab 3 TB3-X70L, TB3-X70F - BobjGear Protective Tablet Cover (Gotcha Green) (not for Tab 2 A10-30)

Android or a iPad for a 5 year old girl?

Android is an operating system and iPad is a tablet. Two different things. Saying that a smart child will get to grips with any tablet, be it an android based device or an iOS based device. I'd go with something reasonably cheap as it will be prone to getting damaged.

what is the difference between the a10-30 and a10-70 (this model)?


​the 10-70 has 16gb of storage, 2 GB of ram and has 1200x 1920 pixels. I bought mine and it had 4.4.4 upgraded to 5.0.1.

Decent amount of RAM/HD space, OK not a 'Core M' but these cost far more!. Comprehensive review at 'Techtablets' (see link in first post), credit to their site for the info on this deal. Rather

I've ordered several times from Banggood and have never paid import duty or taxes. It's usually stuff like drones or drone components. One time they even replaced a drone that arrived faulty without me having to send back the broken one, which I think was decent of them.

Another time I ended up buying a fake battery charger, reported it to them and they pointed out that the listing said (in very small print) that the device was a "replica" :-) Conclusion - caveat emptor!


One thing I would caution people on is that Gearbest (for example) ships Windows 10 devices such as TV boxes with non-activated Windows 10 (I don't know if all of them are like that, but mine was). Since the manufacturer never provides drivers then the only sure way to proceed is activate from the Windows store, and that will cost you more than the device itself.

If you are the adventurous type you can use Double Driver to back up the drivers on the device, then install a much cheaper, but still "legitimate" copy of Windows 10 on the device, and then restore the drivers.

It worked for me, but I'm moderately tech-savvy.

Bottom line - make sure you buy from a reputable seller with a guarantee that Windows is activated. I would definitely avoid Gearbest, because I know they have non-activated versions of Windows.

I can't speak for Banggood, but make sure you check.

Do these tablets have locked boot loaders similar to phones (and other android tablets), or can they be installed with other stuff as easy as you'd do with laptops/desktops?

Wouldn't mind knowing too this too mind?. :-)

Whatever?, lol.

True, but then again it's not a phone...

NOPE!, iPhone ... lol.

Interesting enough, BOTH BangGood and Gear Best sell these Chuwi Hi10 Dual-Boot + Chuwi Hi10 Single-Boot Tablets too!, hehehe. :-)
This one has a non-laminated screen which means that the digitizer (glass) can stick to the lcd panel and create some water-underneath effect. The same happened to my chuwi 8.

They will credit it. I bought a Lenovo Y50 when Lenovo had the cashback offer on over a year ago and it was also on sale at Very with the additional offers of 100 credit and the new customer discount. I used all offers and just hoped for the best. Got all of them and ended up with an i7 gaming laptop for under 500 quid.
Had zero problems with very and bought various other products since.
What's wrong with very?
" This offer can’t be used in conjunction with other offers." Probably won't credit the money as it is on sale.
my general rule of thumb is never buy anything from Very. They are the worst! just sayin
£635 for the unit and the cover is a great price. I just paid £663 for that but Microsoft threw in a pair of Master & Dynamic earphones as well so i guess there's no point looking to change.

Very have this on clearance and for those with a credit account their current promotion of £100 credit when using Buy Now Pay Later makes this look a bargain to me. Only Red keyboard left

"Stunning 8" HD display (189 ppi / 1280 x 800)"

Not likely, that's a basic low end display.


​Selling same model for last 2 years at same price. This is quite old now
Anyone know if you can install Google play store on here without rooting (and thus potentially bricking) it?

HD but only just , bit of a low res by todays standards
why not save around £15 pre-ordering the 16gb and buying 32gb card for around a fiver? you then have 48gb on board for less £94.99.
