Just curious why no one consider buying local set from Lenovo? Is it too expensive? Overseas models seem to have a bit of problems here and there.

If the SN available and intact, most likely can check thru Lenovo CN support website

http://support.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/.../Newbxpz.aspx#

Basically just to tell if it is genuine by Lenovo, what model, when warranty start/end, active/not active (could be activated by reseller), service status if available..etc




Most users feedback that youtube issue is due to version incompatability..they just root it and replace with the latest youtube app to make it work..If you keen to keep the set perhaps can ask the guy to replace the youtube app for u instead of do it yourself since ur there..forget it if ur going for refund then..
Anyone bought the set from shoppe with 30% off? YouTube also FUBAR!

Local set is over priced..can get almost 2 oversea/export set at local set price ..oversea/export set more suitable to those like challenge and used to diy

Official set from Lenovo is not fault proof ..microsd card & reboot issue seen reported - good thing is can send back to service center..fix or not fix is another matter.

Can u screenshot yr xiaoxin set the Android firmware version etc

Yes there's Google Play Store. I'm able to install apps like AnTuTu & CPU-Z on it. But YouTube dose not work. Keep on crashing. Told the seller about it and he told me to bring it back for him to check. I'll be bringing my set back tml to let him test.

I suppose if YouTube doesn't work properly then it's possible that Google play services isn't properly installed. I can forgo OTA updates and the headphone jack issue for this price but not when YouTube can't even function properly

YouTube works as long as you don't sign in your Google account. But it's a super old version.

Just root it and you can remove and reinstall to the latest version of YouTube and smart note using an uninstall app.

And update the Google play services for a better experience with the tablet and considering it is enough processing power and memory/storage. The version I installed is 11.9.75 (446-182402865), has been stable so far.

This is apparently a 8804F xiaoxin unit originally with ROM version 170905_PRC but flashed with 8704F ROM version 170706_ROW. I have tried to flash it to the latest 180202_ROW in vain.

If anyone has successfully flashed it, please pm me to share how it could be done. Thanks

Those having problems are not the real tab4plus. They are just flashed with tab4plus rom . Thats why the big bargain.
