Does anyone know how fast the read and write speeds are for the microsd card slot? Was going to pick up a media card and was wondering what speed I should get.

Still no root? Lineage Support?
I highly doubt it would ever happen. It's not that a popular tablet.

One of the reasons why this tablet has no root is because it's a Fido (or Rogers/Fido) specific model, so the user base for it is very limited. With so few users out there for this specific model, there are even fewer of us who both own the tablet and have the technical know-how of how to unlock the bootloader.

The T-Mobile variant of this tablet has been rooted from the get-go, but no one has been able to make those instructions work with our version.

The tablet is getting slower and slower, is this something a refresh will fix?

I also noticed that it reboots randomly when watching youtube.

Factory reset might help. Also, look into Adoptable Storage.

It's faster that the cards you can get.

If you are looking into Adoptable Storage use, even the fastest ones [like Sandisk Extreme Pro] will hardly keep up, if at all. Some people around here did this, they might shed more light on the practical results...

I generally found after enabling Adoptable Storage, apps installed on the microSD care are noticeably slower to start up. For what I do with it, that's not a huge problem. I think it's also a combination of the low RAM (1.5GB) on this device.

I've had this tablet for 2 years and 2 months and no issues. I didn't install too many apps on it (hard to do with 16gb storage) but I still use it to edit RAW photos when I'm on vacation. There aren't too many tablets that have a full size USB port, not even Pad IV, and my DSLR doesn't have wifi or Bluetooth to transfer files so the USB port is very convenient.

For those complaining it's slow, try disabling background apps and Google sync (I only have Gmail sync enabled).

Essential apps, and you are golden... Full size USB is precious...

Remember someone here looking for $200+ bigger fast SD card cuz their 128GB adopted storage was full!!! And complaining tablet was slow! hahahahaha
