Picking it up today. It is dual OS which I wanted: windows10 + android. It only took 5 days from China. First time I bought a computer online, ridiculous low price.

My question is how do I find out if it has motion sensors built in?

I want to play with apps that give acceleration data. I manage a human powered vehicle race team (very serious comp but pure amateur hobby) and hope to mount the tablet on board to get motion data to test vehicle design. How valid is the data and what apps. I have heard these devices are quiet accurate.

Look in 'Settings'. I have never seen a dual OS Android tablet but on the Android side clicking on the settings sicon - looks like a cogwheel - will take you there then hunt for 'motion sensors' or 'accelerometer'. On the Windows side I imagine you will find it in 'Control panel' but being Win 10 it may be in one of the other settings 'apps'.

Got it, awesome device. Swaps OS's easy, even a pre-charged battery.

Nice physical build, very solid, I was expecting something more flimsy.

Only thing wrong is it comes with a few icons on the front screen written in Chinese, language settings doesn't affect them. The rest is in English. I will start a thread to try identify and remove these apps.

How is it even possible to sell such a device for the same price as a single copy of windows 10.

Could not find anything that looked like motion sensors in apps, any other suggestions?

So happy with my first tablet.
