Nice device, great battery life but speakers are the worst, can barely hear the thing.
on 25 February 2018
Update! 2 March 18 - If you use an SD card it will more than double the boot up time with no response from Lenovo on this issue - 20 seconds as normal, nearly 50 seconds with an SDCard inserted. Wish we could do half stars as I feel it should be 3.5 stars but for my needs it's closer to 4 I guess.
A hard review to write, superlative battery life, screen good enough (for my poor old eyes), nice and light, runs non demanding games (Sunless Sea and Bejeweled), Word / Card games (MS Mahjong and Wordament for eg), and it comes bundled with mobile Word & Excel, it's perfect for reading graphic novels, watching Netflix and checking emails...
EXCEPT! the speakers are the cheapest crap I've ever witnessed in a mobile device, seriously, the Nokia 310 sounded better (certainly louder) than this. At first i thought it might be my device but checking out online it seems to be a fairly standard complaint with the only suggestion to buy Bluetooth speakers - luckily I had one.
Also the Win10 1709 update (Feb '18) borked the BT / wifi adapter and I had to download the realtek drivers (google it), to get them working, so someone at Lenovo should look into that with some urgency!
I almost returned it, but, nothing in this price range that I could find offers the same battery life (really important to me).
