Tablet mode is ... "inconsistent". Some parts of it are okay, others aren't - specifically the persistent task bar (which has icons that are too damn small to be touch friendly). This is on an Acer...

File associations get reset each time. Wouldn't mind so much if the video & music players were any good - they kinda suck on a desktop; interface seems similar to what I have on my W8.1 tablet, on...

This is nothing more than an overpriced el cheapo Android device with emulators built in.

It looks to be similar spec to the recently released Vodafone Smart Ultra 6, but costing 50% more. And the...

Not true; if it is the case please give links.

I'm not on a red tariff or payg. Just a regular unlimited talk/text with 1gb data. Was upgraded to 4G at no extra charge about 2 weeks back.

I'm running W10 on my laptop. Only ever put it to sleep, it starts up almost instantly. My W8.1 tablet takes about 20 seconds to startup - quicker than most Android devices.
