Lenovo ideapad Miix310 10.1 Inch 64 GB eMMC Tablet review 


I don't know a whole lot about computers, and predominantly got Lenovo ideapad Miix310  for light web surfing, taking notes, and reading news articles/PDFs while on travel, at conferences, etc. I wanted something light and small enough to throw in a larger purse, but also was more comfortable for typing than my phone or iPad 4. I also definitely did not want an Apple machine as a specific program I need to use does not work on Apple. The Surface Pro was very interesting, but I couldn't justify the cost since I have an Apple laptop and iPad (despite both being 5-7 years old are still kicking), plus a clunky work laptop and my SO's desktop, so it's not like I don't have other computing options in a pinch.

After researching and reading a bunch of reviews that I half understood, I settled on this Lenovo ideapad Miix310 . It's not a powerhouse, and if you need something more like a full laptop this might not fit the bill. However, for what I need it's perfect. I added on a 64GB card to expand the memory, and was able to figure out how to get it to work fairly easily. The keyboard is small, but I've gotten used to typing on it and appreciate the small size (might be helpful to turn off the tap=click for the mousepad, that's my biggest problem). It's heavier than the SP keyboard, but at the same time that makes it easier to use on my lap which is nice. So far it's booted up pretty quickly, and if you're careful with memory usage then it's fine (I'm mostly storing files on USB flash drives or cloud drives, reserving the computer's memory for actual apps). The screen is a bit shiny, but I don't really mind it. The sound also isn't great, but I don't plan on using this without headphones so again it doesn't really bother me. I'm not sure if this model is LTE-enabled. It has a slot for a SIM card, but I don't know if that means there's also an antenna installed or if they use the same slot for every model. Since I don't have an extra SIM card I can't really try it out.


There is so much I like about it, Lenovo ideapad Miix310  might be helpful to list what I don't like first.
What I don't like:
Lenovo ideapad Miix310 Charging. Seems like a design flaw but the charge cord does not want to stay connected. I have to really fiddle with it to charge, and even then if I move it wrong it will stop charging. The red light indicates it's charging, so make sure you see it. Also, why couldn't they just have this charge with a standard micro USB like my Android tablets and my phone? There's a special chunky cord for this one. I am not a fan.

Not much internal memory. I ran out of room QUICKLY. Had to use the SD card. This can be up to 64gb according to Lenovo. I only had a 32 on hand. But in my experience, sometimes you can use a higher card than recommended and get away with it. For instance my phone is a max 64gb card too, but I have a 128gb installed and it works fine. If you have a bigger card, try it. I certainly would. It won't hurt anything, at worst the machine just won't read it.

The SD Card slot is a big pain to get out. I had to pry it open with a toothpick. I really thought I was going to break it. There is no way to get at it without some sort of tool to help.

Small keyboard is a bit hard to get used to. Not necessarily bad because the keyboard has to be small... but I should note that I do not like typing on it too much due to the size. I would not use this to blog for instance. I constantly mistype words because my fingers are not used to being that close together. But on the flip side of that, having the integrated keyboard is amazing and makes this more useful than it would have been as just a tablet... my preferred use is for short emails and web searches and things like that.

Camera is nothing to brag about. 5 mp / 2mp respectively.

What I really like:
Battery life is INCREDIBLE. Watched Netflix for hours and still had a lot of battery left. So awesome!

Laptop and tablet in one provides more opportunity for use. Took this with me last weekend to the lake. Was able to check in at work and do some minor tasks that I couldn't have with just my phone. This thing is so much more portable than a bigger laptop. But you also get the tablet feature which is great. Touchscreen for both uses, of course.

Windows 10 is just like my laptop. It works and acts just like my laptop. There was no learning curve at all. Loved that.

USB Ports. This is so great. I can use a mouse!!! Or if I wanted to hook to my printer directly and print... I can. Or if I want to hook up my external CD drive.... I can do that too. And you get two ports.

RCA Voyager II Tablet 8GB Quad Core Black seven inch review

RCA Voyager II Tablet 8GB Quad Core  Black seven inch review 



PROS RCA Voyager II Tablet

Music Player...there is just Google Play Music, which is so so. However, I went to Google Playstore and purchased the FREE Music Player called Music Folder Player ....this is my favorite player of all time because it allows me to play music by Folders....so easy to use.

Front Camera for RCA Voyager II Tablet only. This will allow you to use Skype or other Video calling. There is no rear camera lens...no taking regular pictures, this is disappointing.

Bluetooth...works wonderfully. It paired with my Bluetooth speaker quickl and my phone quickly and easily paired. The built in tablet speakers work so so but not that loud but on my Bluetooth speaker, loud and clear.

WiFi Phone calling...there is no regular phone in this tablet. However, I installed Google Hangouts (WiFi calling). It works as I have a Hangout phone number so I called a friend and we talked while I was on this tablet...WiFi must be working and turned on for this.


RCA Voyager II Tablet is OK for space IF you do not install lots of games in it.

Peppiness and overall speed...coolness of tablet...Peppier than I expected, no lagging. Tablet runs super cool at max 85 degrees, this is excellent...never overheats.

Battery Life...3.75 Hours while I had WiFi on, Bluetooth On and was posting on Facebook, while this is not great, at 3.75 hours use, I still had 15 percent so I plugged in the charger.

Display/Screen Brightness...At 100 percent brightness, it is OK bright, plenty for me. However, I compared it to my Samsung Tab A 9.7 Tablet and Samsung tablet was brighter than this RCA tablet. I read a book on the Kindle Reading app and the brightness was great.

Internet Apps...I prefer the built in Internet, it is easy to use. Also, I use the Google app and it works great. There is also Google Chrome browser, this works great as well.

SD Card slot...so I installed a 32gb micro SanDisk SD card. I copied my music folders from my laptop, my videos and files and even with lots of music, I still have 6 gigs left to add more music later. I am not sure if this tablet will hold a 64 gb or larger card as I just had a 32 gig card to install. This tablet read my card perfectly and I played my music, found my files.

Cons for  RCA Voyager II Tablet


 No regular camera...no camera lens on back, just front. But it does take selfies and video chatting.
There is a camera lens on front for selfies or video chatting such as Skype (2.1 mp).

- Advertized at 8gb...only about 3.75 left before I installed my apps from Playstore. But even after Facebook, Twitter, Google Hangouts, Kindle app and 21 more apps, I still have over 2gb to install more apps later on.

Should you consider this tablet? Yes, IF you want a very basic tablet that you can use Facebook, Twitter, Internet, emails, listen to music, then YES. But you need a regular camera, as this tablet is for selfies and video chatting, it just has a front camera.. If you are big into games, then NO, then buy another, higher end tablet as a Samsung, ASUS etc.

Why did I buy this tablet? I keep it in my kitchen to listen to music, read Kindle recipe books, check Noaa weather, Radar Alive Pro, check my Gmail. This tablet at 36 dollars is PERFECT for me and it stays on top of my kitchen counter, I love it when I am cooking.
When I relax in bed, I use my very much loved Samsung Tab A 9.7 tablet.

User opinion
I'm using zuk z1 from last couple of days and I feel there is no problem of heating like you say. It's a perfect phone with the best options. In just loving it. The quality and built is really fantastic with features like finger print sensor..
Camera is good not great but still it's above average.. Low light vision is little ofa concern otherwise it's a good phone.
battery is amazing. By far the best I have seen. I am heavy user and end a day of 15-16 hrs with 15-20% left on my phone.
Heating, I experience from time to time, not that severe, and not something I didnt have on Sony.

The ZUK Z1 is supposed to be an "out of the box" device, at least outside of Lenovo's usual box. Lenovo will soon move its mobile division under the storied Motorola brand for better name recognition in the West, while backing the ZUK startup.
The Z1 doesn't live up to the outsider status, phones with 5.5" 1080p screens and a mid-range price are the most popular category these days. Its two advanced features - fingerprint reader and optical image stabilization - are rare, but can still be found in similar devices. The 8MP selfie camera is great, but not unique either.

 I'll try to keep this simple, my more detailed review for this tablet keeps getting rejected.

DigiLand 10.1 Pros:
Cheap price
 Lightweight
Decent Processing
Somewhat smooth games (could be better but it's not bad)
 HDMI output
 Long battery life, lasted until the next day around the same time even after downloading, installing, and playing games on it for hours
Nearly all of my favorite apps were compatible, and with enough space to install them
 Good audio, clear and loud

DigiLand 10.1Cons:



 New condition was still refurbished, had a tiny scratch
Very bad low-res screen (this particular con outweighs all of the pros for me)
Didn't like the onscreen keyboard

I ended up returning it because of the screen. I have some screenshots of a benchmark test for it that I will try to add later if my review doesn't get rejected again. If you like having a clear easy-to-read display, then I do not recommend this tablet.
