The biggest problem I see with all products running android is that often you end using a product that is not updated and becomes obsolete quickly. Thats the reason I continue using apple products although they are overpriced and difficult to service or repair.

Mike theJedi says:

My only concern is updates, Apple is golden for 4/5 years and nothing android tablet seems to compare. Your thoughts bud?

Ed Cruzat says:

Great review! Can it play Netflix hd and YouTube at 1440p 60 fps? Some reports say it can’t.

Watching on OnePlus 5t

Nice Tablet!! I have a 10″ Sony Xperia from a few years ago. Still going strong(except for Android) and I like the fact I can dunk it in a fish tank with the power ON. However looking back at my purchase I regret that it cost as much as a Ipad and it has Android. My hardware on my tablet will be good, but the stale unsupported Android will always be a burden.

I feel that this 8″ is the right size, sure I got a 10″, but if the 8″ is lighter, I would get this. Load Kiwi on it and have Wikipedia offline!

Dears, Does anyone play on this tablet in some demanding 3D games? I bought that M5 8.4 and when I play War Robots (the game which Bruce showed), my tablet is hot after 10 minutes and very very hot after 15 miuntes of playing. I have to finish the match and take a pause because it is so unplesent to hold it in hands. I’m not sure if shoud I return it?

ever thought about 3d printing? They are so cheap these days.

Joe Hrdina says:

Would be helpful to compare it to a frugal option to show what paying more really gets you.
