I have the Tab S8-50 LC model (Wifi+4G) sold in India..
I would like to hear the experiences of those who have upgraded to Lollipop 5.0.1 on this model.
How is the Performance (UI fluidity, opening closing apps, app load times, gaming etc.), Battery Life, Stability compared to Kitkat?
Does the ART makes any noticeable difference?
Has Lenovo given us a proper upgrade (bugfree, polished, complete) or has just pushed out something that works reasonably?
Any issues you are facing after update..
What was good before now bad/broken and what has improved over Kitkat..
I am completely satisfied with rooted Kitkat + Xposed, I just want to know if Lollipop is worth it.
Any comments, screenshots, links to your blog are most appreciated..

Heard from one of the seller here that the reason why FB Messenger is not supported is that most Intel Processors have issues with Video Calling Features. Don't know if it is true, but even me, I was disappointed why I can't use Video Call with Lenovo TAB S8. Hope Lenovo will do something to SOLVE the issue...
