In Android you have to go via an APK repository. apkmirror is well regarded although some will advise against it since it isn't an officially supported option.  So you can use your favouriate search engine and download the apk if you are comfortable with the potential risk.

Thanks. I'll have to take the chance. I pay for this software and its unusable on my phone in its current state.

Actually the Evernote software is free.  Software updates are also free    
There are charges for the use of premium features

Yes DTLow, but these paid features also do not work at all with official Android App: my offline notebooks are not downloaded correctly, and when, you cannot view the embedded pictures in your notes when offline and so on....just an example of the whole mess. I really understand every premium user wanting to switch back to legacy 8.13.3. It just works and is fast, premium features supported.

To all who want to revert, Evernote support shared a link to download legacy directly to another premium users in this forum:

Hi I'm unable to access this link. I'd like to revert to the legacy version as this version of Evernote is very buggy. 

Just checked the download, it is still available. Perhaps you could not install. It's done that way: After a complete sync uninstall. Restart your device, deactivate automatic updates on play store (important). Last step is to manually install the apk (you have to allow manual installations, Android will ask for this). If you keep the old APK in your downloads you can easily try out new versions later and - if necessary - roll back again if the bugs still haven't gone.

Just wondering what problems remain with V10? Since I got the update to 10.10 I haven't encountered a single bug.

Most users don't have v10.10 but I only have the Gboard interoperability issue in 10.9 and I'm hoping that will be fixed in 10.10 as you reported...

If 10.10 would resolve the image rendering bug, I would be glad. This one drives me crazy

Have you tried transferring the images which aren't displayed in Evernote to Android by another means and checking that the default image viewer can display them? Maybe there's something unusual about the image files.

Thank you for enabling me to get back to a version that actually works. I am now running the legacy version on my PC and the above android version on my phone and everything is right with the world. I am still amazed that a company that produces such an amazing product can get it so wrong and make their loyal users suffer so much with an inferior version (I refuse to call it an upgrade). Considering that the problems seem to be slow in being addressed I will just carry on using the earlier version for as long as possible. I refuse to be a guinea pig for a product that I pay for.

It is a bug experienced by several users. Support confirmed this to me as under investigation an Shane D. reopened the according thread. For me it is hitting on images of all notes no matter where they originate.

As I am also suffering from the extreme slowness of the 10.X app. I again rolled back all my devices to 8.13.3 and Evernote once again is a running working horse now. I am extremely frustrated about the failing Android development, no substantial progress to be seen after version 10 in the wild for over 6 months. If you compare the performance of 8.13.3 and 10.9 on same devices in parallel it is simply ridiculous. Nobody would chose 10.9 voluntarily based on this experience if you have to use (that is producing and editing with) the Android app on a daily basis. I don't care about table editing in slow motion or a fancy home screen (which costs another 5-10 seconds to load) if I can get a reliable and responsive Evernote with 8.13.3.

Something is definitely wrong with your installation. Evernote opens in 2 seconds on my device and that after i've removed it from ram. I also have not had a single problem with images.

I read about your 2 seconds timing several times here and understand you are experiencing no problems - which is really nice. I would love to see this on my account as well. I have used En 10.x on several different devices running Android 10 and 11...all resulting the same issues. All issues confirmed by support with my raised tickets. They never told me, that my installation was wrong. They suggested rolling back to 8.13.3...

ok just found this post and installed this legacy version, what a relief! 

I have to say, they went about this rewrite all wrong, would have been better to make the legacy apps (web/mob) available (with disclaimer no further updates) and put them on a sticky thread in the forums to try and defuse the tension with your existing/paying/loyal customers. Even in the best case scenario users get very attached to how an app works so doing a complete UI rewrite is risky. "Basecamp classic" is an example where they followed this approach (https://signalvnoise.com/posts/3856-the-big-rewrite-revisited) of keeping the old version around and pushing the new version for new customers.

I know they kept the old web version around as I switched back to that but that got taken away a while ago also and only just now did I update my Android apps and got hit with this buggy and barely usable version.
