    The only regret I have about my iwork 10 is not getting the USB3 version.  I got the Type-C instead and since this unit doesn’t support fast charger through Type-C, I would have been better off with the USB3 port.

    The speaker placement is odd, but even if they were space on each side they would still sound like every other pair of mediocre phone/tablet speakers.

    One thing I’m very happy about in this tablet is the Wifi performance.  I get better wifi coverage in my house than I do on my Nexus 6 phone and my older Dell Latitude laptop.  I have two levels and a basement and there isn’t anywhere I can’t go.

    I have no tested out a micro sd card on it.  I really need to because I’m out of space on my Windows 10 partition.  These units have had a bunch of problems reading 128GB cards, so I’m going to go with a 64GB card and avoid it.

    I haven’t seen anyone complain about this sort of thing around here, but I am nervous and skeptical about it too.

    If you are looking for “cheaper” Windows 10 lics then have a look @ https://www.kinguin.net/category/19429/windows-10-professional-oem-key/ I have not bought from them but they seem to be ok.

    Yup.  I’d probably buy a mobile phone off him to support the site.

    Or get to know someone who works for Microsoft.  Their alumni program is nice!  $35 for the home editions and $40 for pro I think?

    Keep in mind that all of the complaining you see on these forums is a result of the fact that it’s one of the few places to come to ask for help.  If every satisfied owner of a tablet came and posted, this would look like a different place.  I don’t think you can get a real idea of how widespread issues are from a forum like this.

    While I have some complaints about the iwork 10 that I have, it’s still a crazy value for what you get.  Is the type-c connection a disappointment?  Yes.  Is the SSD of the slower kind?  Yes.  But for $250 US, I got a 10 inch tablet with a hard shell keyboard which can do everything I want a tablet to do quickly and responsively and with a beautiful screen.  I work in IT and I got to work on a Surface 3 pro this week.  The only thing that pro had over the iwork 10 was the ability to play better games because of the better CPU.  Otherwise, my iwork 10 was just as nice.

    It does now? So there will also be a Mi Notebook Air with 4G? Don’t worry, I cost myself a lot more buying all this tech to review. I’ m sure the Xiaomi notebook will be better, but this one still looks hopeful and easy access to upgrade the SSD. My main concern is battery life on this LiveFan S1.

    You should raffle off your tablets after you’re done with the reviews, haha.  I hope you can at least break even with your ad revenue.  Hopefully you’ll get big enough to get review samples for free at some point.

    no? why should it…

     

    Because Microsoft has a nasty habit of killing dual boot setups with updates.  I’m not familiar enough with how  dual boot is accomplished on this tablet to know if this is a real concern.

    I got the keyboard today. But it seems to be impossible to push the part with the pin holder backwards so that it is possible to dock the tablet. Is there any locking mechanism which i don’t get? anyone with this issue?

    The same thing happened with me.  I ended up sliding the tablet onto the keyboard face down and then it opened easily.  It made me nervous that it would scratch the glass but it didn’t.

    From my experience, the only devices Windows 10 is unstable on are devices which aren’t certified for it.  I do IT for a small company and we have a set of laptops which are 3-4 years old.  They aren’t certified on it even though they should technically be able to run it, but we have all kinds of small issues so we stick to Windows 7.  The laptops which are certified for Windows 10 never have issues.

     

    I’m up to date on all of my Windows 10 updates on my iwork 10 and I haven’t seen anything go wrong.  You should be fine.

    Mine runs fine and I don’t have any issues, but I do wish I’d gotten the version with the full sized USB3 port.  I don’t own any type-c devices.  I wanted the faster charging and since it doesn’t really do that and I don’t have the devices to use it, it’s a waste for me.  You combine that with the fact that a bunch of the internals on the rev1 are faster, like the RAM and Storage, and it makes more sense to have rev 1 for me.  Live and learn.

    This probably needs to be a sticky post at the top of the forum.  Very useful.

    That is the slowest Windows 10 reset I’ve ever seen.  It finally got done but it took hours and hours.  Maybe eight total?

    You can use the free version of MiniTool Partition Wizard 9 to resize the Windows partition on your tablet which would free up space.  It’s got a GUI front end which is really easy to use.  You just right click on the partition, choose resize, and then move a slider around.  After you have it, you hit apply and it does all the work.

    I have very little Android expertise though so I’m not sure what you would use to then expand your Android partition from the free space available.
