The first Ubuntu tablet and the first to offer desktop-mobile convergence, the rear camera shoots surprisingly good stills, particularly HDR mode. A quad-core powers the M10, 64-bit MediaTek MT8163 SoC clocked at 1.3GHz in the HD model and 1.5GHz in the FHD model reviewed here. The GPU is a Mali-T720 MP2, clocked up to 520MHz (HD) and 600MHz (FHD). Both models have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded by up to 64GB by plugging a card into the external MicroSD slot.

Report an Issue for
BQ Aquaris M10 FHD
Did the maintainer say that feature ‘works’ but you know from doing it that
it really doesn’t?
Start by searching the bug device issue if you found it, hopefully the porter is on it. 'Subscribe' to the issue in case it get solved.
Couldn't find it?
Uh-oh… Well it is time to let the porter and everyone else know about the fail and send the tech magic back to the workshop for a makeover.
1. Read 'Bug Reporting' section in UBports docs on 'How to report a bug'.
2. Then (this time), head to GitHub Issues and submit it, so the porter knows about it.
