I've got it here with me this morning and it runs absolutely fine. I've even got Action Launcher running atop of Lineage and I'm not perceiving any slowness, definitely usable. I may try and move it up to Oreo, although I'll have to re-learn how to do it again via Google.

Okay looks like one for me to do list if I can find the Nexus :)

IIRC, it didn't take long to unlock the bootloader etc.

Well it may well be a moot point as so far I've not been able to find it :)

Oops. It'll turn up.

Whilst on the subject of tablets, did I mention that I've now got a Surface Pro 5 for work? I can see what you guys mean about the Surface Pro's now!!

I am about to take ownership of an ASUS ZenPad  3S 10 (the Z500M model) on Tuesday, which i decided on after looking at the Samsung S3 (nice, but pricey at £500) and The Samsung S2 (similar price to the ASUS  but a bit dated in some respects).

The Zenpad can be had for £299 from John Lewis at the moment and ticks all the boxs for me.

EDIT: Arrrrgghhhhhhhhhhhhh .......... John Lewis have now reduced it to £250.........just a couple of days after my other half bought it for me as a birthday present at £299 ......... Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

The price went back up to £299 in a few days,  but this weekend both John Lewis and PC World have dropped the price of the Zenpad 500M to just £199. I don't know if this is a temporary ASUS sponsored promotion, but its a fantastic tablet for that price.

Mine has been fantastic in use. Its very fast and smooth and a great screen + 24bit hi-res audio including  Dolby for movies.

That is one heck of a decent machine for that price :)

Does the chipset include GPS ?

A-Gps and GLONASS, apparently.

I always seems to get fast and accurate fixs using Google maps.
