I haven't seen any tearing so far. But as Jaeger-x points out, you can set a frame rate in the legion assistant's graphics settings (but no 40fps option)

Wow.. so how about notifications.. do you receive WhatsApp, Facebook, twitter or email notifications?
I don't use Facebook or have WhatsApp installed, but I get Twitter notifications just fine. They don't appear to ever be late. I also get e-mail and all of my other expected notifications. A lot of the Chinese OEM ROMs for devices I have used (Xiaomi, Redmi, Realme, Lenovo) appear to have totally unnecessary restrictions to notifications and background usage. You have to manually modify the settings for pretty much every application.

Under battery > app usage > I have background restriction set to App can use battery in background. Under notifications & status bar > notification management > I have enabled all Twitter notifications at the very top. The final thing is, open Twitter > swipe up and hold for recent apps > long press the Twitter icon > then lock it. You pretty much have to do these steps with every single application that you find it important to receive timely notifications on. It's super annoying. Xiaomi has a way to kind of do this in bulk since MIUI 12 (but not as a default setting), but I haven't seen it on other ROMs.

Stylus support? Kind of…

Now the documentation and such never mentioned stylus support but some people have asked about it, no doubt due to the P11 and P12 both supporting it.

No, the tablet’s screen does not support a stylus, but the software actually does.

What do I mean? Well, I have the Lenovo m14t portable monitor which supports stylus input. When I have connected it to my Galaxy Tab S6 and my LG V60, both of which DO have stylus support, they both just detected the stylus on the portable monitor as a simple touch input with no pressure sensitivity and no tilt detection (and abnormal lag to be honest).

But the Y700 works perfectly with it. There’s no lag and it detects both pressure sensitivity and tilt detection in apps like Concepts and Adobe Sketchbook.

What does this mean for users? You can’t use an active stylus to take notes on the tablet while out and about but you can use it for artistic purposes if you have an external stylus capable monitor (and who knows, maybe it even works with non-screen drawing pads). The device is fast and has plenty of RAM so you can definitely take advantage of that. It also means if you have such a monitor you can whip it out at café and annotate documents by hand and the like.

As for note taking on the go? The screen is really sensitive and responsive so basic handwritten notes are possible with a simple capacitive stylus. Of course, you won’t get palm rejection or anything of the sort.
I don't understand why all Android manufacturers don't just enable USI support by default unless they have a proprietary solution. A lot of cheap Chromebooks have had USI support for a couple of years now. I doubt there is any good reason not to include it except to maybe upsale you to another device.

I just saw it this morning as well. Did you install it yet? I was hoping it was Android 12, but it seems that it's not. I couldn't ever get super wide working in LoL Wild Rift nor 120fps. 😡😡😡

I always a bit hesitant to update deviecs that I can't find official fastboot ROMs for.

Yes, I installed it and it works fine.
The super wide thing only works on the Chinese version of the game so it's kinda useless for us

The weird thing is that legion y700 is completely alone, it have no competition, no alternative. Unless you go with iPad mini

Cost. It's another component. It's a hardware solution, not software.
This tablet is designed specifically for gaming. From the branding, to speaker placement, port placement, default orientation, inclusion of the audio jack, software, screen, everything. So it's logical they assumed stylus input wouldn't be a priority and an unnecessary cost. I don't know how successful the tablet is in China but it seems to be (especially with the new ultimate version coming out) and mobile gaming IS popular in China.
Now, I would have liked them to include pen input. I like pen input (as proven by my device list and y the extra items I have for a better experience). And heck, maybe they did but I don't have the right pen protocol (I tried Wacom EMR, Wacom AES and MPP).

But yeah, extra hardware is hard to justify it it's a feature that won't get used.

What extra hardware is needed for USI v1? I assumed it was something pretty cheap or software because it's in cheap Chromebooks.

Hi
I was going to purchase Y700 Tablet until I saw a problem with Video output with DisplayPort Alt Mode. This site says "the resolution is very low and the aspect ratio is not correct, making it unusable for now."
do you have this problem with this device?
Thanks

Oh…sorry I didn't notice for so long.
I think Magisk was 25.2 and the ROM is ArrowOS.
But with CrDroid's BgN version you can pass Safetynet on 12L. Don't forget to apply Denylist to Google Play Store and GMS services.
Hi, thanks for reply. I have crDroid 8.6 installed. When I patch boot img with magisk is it the original Lenovo boot img or the boot img from crDroid? Thanks

Sorry, I've never tried video output on it. Someone said their device was temporarily bricked from HDMI out. It's not something I do a lot so I just haven't bothered trying ATM. I can say though that the PC Mode unfortunately doesn't seem to be affected by changes in wm density.

    Thank you

    Concerning notifications, the system security app has an autostart manager, where the user can whitelist apps. I used to have login problems with accounts not being recognized for installed games, but after whitelisting the play store, everything is fine...also receiving update notifications. I'm not using social media apps so I can't comment on those.

    You might need download app name "google" in chinese application store/update to latest version

    I haven't set up Whatsapp, Facebook or Twitter on the device. Remember that on Android Whatsapp currently works on only one device so if you set it up on the tablet, you lose it on your phone (and given that the tablet is not 3G/4G/5G capable, I'm not willing to make that sacrifice. You can try using Whatsapp web by setting your browser to ask for the desktop site, but from experience this doesn't work consistently. Facebook and Twitter I'll set up eventually but I am not an avid user.
    As I state in my review, I have set up my yahoo mail and gmail. Neither gives me a notification that I have new messages. As I also mention in the review I posted here. The first time I used Skype I didn't even get a notification of an incoming call when using inside the app (it works now) but still haven't gotten notifications for messages while it's in the background. From personal experience I would not suggest this tablet for a primary communications device unless you flash a different ROM. You'd be better off using a smartwatch linked to a phone and then if you get an important notification you could open the corresponding app on this device and respond (aside from whatsapp that is(.
    I didnt setup email on the device yet but facebook messenger msg notification very loud noise and msg shown on lock screen and main android drop down menu.
    You might need download app name "google" in chinese application store/update to latest version
    I'll have to see if it works with Facebook. I tried installing the google app to see it helped with other notifications but it's a no go. (even after a reboot).

    Hi all.
    I just got this tablet yesterday.
    Language available on tablet are chinese and english maybe (morelocale2 could be useful)
    Google play services can be download directly from ZUI app store inside the tablet.
    Widevine L1.
    not sure about root or unlock bootloader (didn't use android device for a long time)
    5
    I have flashed a lot of GSI on this tablet so far.
    Here is a summary of the bugs and other issues that I have noticed in them.
    ※All of them are Android 12L except for the ones without special notes.

    ①Corvus OS, Descendant OS, Cherish OS...Lock screen does not rotate. Probably because it is based on Google Pixel ROM. Corvus also does not have face unlock. The latest Corvus also added this.
    ②Ancient OS(Android 12.0)...Lock screen does not turn to landscape. Also, when I change the username or photo at the top of the settings, the settings app crashes. Also note that the settings app crashes if you change the username or photo above the settings.
    ③Proton AOSP...When I restarted to set up Magisk, the settings app repeatedly stops. Deleting app data and cache had no effect.
    ④Havoc OS(Android 11)...The startup logo does not appear in the first place and comes back to the bootloader.
    ⑤Superior OS...It started, but the FPS dropped extremely. I judged that it is difficult to use regularly.
    ⑥Pixel Experience…The screen is still not landscape. Also, it seems that it is not optimized for tablets any more than Descendant, and when I call the dock while launching an app(the feature of 12L), the icon looks like it has been split in half.
    ⑦All of NipponGSI...Like Havoc OS, it comes back to the bootloader. It may be a bad compatibility.
    ⑧Lineage OS…There was a switch "Rotate lock screen" in the settings. But I don't use it, because the "su" binary is still in the root file and can't delete it ,so interferes with SafetyNet.
    ⑨Arrow OS...This also allows the lock screen to be turned landscape and is also very light. Although the lack of face unlock is a demerit (LSPosed module didn't work→https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/11-universalauth-face-unlock-for-all-roms.4419343/).But there are few complaints for me. So I'm using it regularly.

    I'm sorry if it's hard to read because I'm not good at English. Thank you.

    Finally unlocked my y700 and installed crDroid 8.6 ROM. So far everything seems to work including Google apps, backup, homescreen and lockscreen rotation. Even face unlock. Oh yes, and notifications do work . Only feature that doesn't work is auto brightness. You also lose Lenovo game mode and use of side button. Google identifies as pixel 6 pro. Thanks to author of Japanese article and gunalarix8 for posting.

    Can you test the setup on an 1080p TV with an HDMI port?
    Works for me. both normal and pc mode.

    Any Chinese junk apps installed as default?
    Yes. But can be uninstall or disable.
