If official set has such problem, then imported set may be the same. Yes. They are cheaper but take note that are actually different build. What worry me is the "hack" firmware. You never know if safe in term of security.
Tats y mentioned those export set are more suitable for ppl like challenge and used to diy ... who are able to fix those reported issue by themselves without relying on service centre ... the $ diff is not just abt 50-100, it is almost 200-300 , of course if it is new set may sound worth. If really concern abt security may just go for IOS at same 400+ price range with regular OS n security patches update...how secure android can be..

yes for the 8" one... no for the 10"...

Did you buy yours in Lenovo SG store or their official Qoo10 store? As I am thinking to purchase from there as well.

If you know how to root the device, you can remove and re-install youtube via playstore to resolve the problem and also get rid of all the bloatware.

Also need to update the google play services.
Hi May I know what method you used to remove youtube. I removed the app via adb prior to rooting but it wouldn't allow me to reinstall via playstore (got 504 error) tried via sideload apk but app installer reported corrupt file for 3 diff files.

I have now successfully rooted the device and want to remove and reinstall youtube but want to avoid being in a position where i remove it and then can't reinstall. Be grateful if you could let me know how you did it.

Many thanks...

Hi anyway you can share the boot and system image file. I flashed the 8704 stock rom and now stuck in a bootloop. Can only go to recovery

I can only remove the youtube app after rooting, then re-install the latest youtube version from play store. I'm not sure how it can be removed via adb prior to rooting though.
