only 8GB........... useless if you want to use many apps. Most apps won't run on an SD card

what on earth are you talking about? (8GB with an SD card for extra storage [sarcasm] and the "few" apps that will actually run on an SD card of course [/sarcasm] should more than suffice)

It's 16GB and for 60 pounds

yes the Hudl 2 had 16gb which is the minimum you need nowadays . The operating system takes up nearly 4GB alone.

Here’s what will swallow up that extra 4GB in no time at all:

Updates to the core Google and Android applications: Chrome, Gmail, the Play Store, YouTube, and up to thirty others. All of these are updated regularly and so you have to allow space for one version of each outside the firmware (only one, because new versions will effectively replace the old). Using ‘finger in the air’ maths, let’s call it 400MB for these binaries.
Temporary files used by the running OS, cache files, map tiles, PIM data for your Google account, Gmail data, and more – this is a biggie, so allow 1GB as a bare minimum.
Third party applications installed by the user (not including games). From Facebook to Twitter to Whatsapp to Pocket Casts, we all have our favourites and they’re unique to us – but reckon on allowing 1GB for these in total.
Data files, caches, thumbnails and internal downloads from all those third party applications – that’s another 500MB gone.
‘All work and no play…’, etc. All users want to install some games, and although the biggest and most professional are now clever enough to use microSD, quite a few don’t, so allow another 1GB for these, even at a conservative estimate (based on my own tablet and usage).

I have a Lenovo tab and it's 16gb. Chose this after struggling with an 8gb Fire.
Some apps will run on SD card but it seems that every time they update the system moves them back to internal storage. So the user can't really move & then forget about them.

This Tab is on Android 5. Needs Android 6 to move any at all and as you say its not long term feasible.

Like all other tablets with only 8gb storage I vote COLD as people buy them don't realise the limitations

I'd still choose a second hand Nexus 7 2013 over this.

I agree the batteries wont be the best due to age. On the other hand, your getting Android 6 out of the box and can flash Lineage 14.1 which is Android 7.1.1 and has even better battery life. There is a trade off but I'd go with the better everything else every time.

Bought one of these for my young daughter to play games / watch films on. Bought a £35 kindle fire for me.

So the specs on this are under debate... all i know is this tab is great. Fast. Robust. Snazzy. As I said, more than enough memory (with an SD Card running MX Player and all the silly games like Fruit Ninja, Subway Surfer, Candy Crush, Sonic Dash, Stickman golf etc) for these purposes (considering there is no email /regular play store use). So much so it is impressive and certainly defecates on the kindle from a great height. So much so that the Fire is going back and I have bought another one of these. A good little tab for the money.

Would this suit me to use as an e-reader and for some web browsing while commuting?

Probably. Web browsing not the fastest but acceptable. I have one that I use on my commute to watch videos and as an e-reader (no browsing) and it works fine. Get about two 1 hour journeys out of one charge.

Have web browsed at home (on WiFi) and the tablet is acceptable. Slow to load pages sometimes but nothing rage worthy.

This deal is for a new tablet. But a refurb with the same specs is on sale (from Argos) on ebay for £39.99. A refurb is a roll of the dice to a certain extent but mine arrived in pristine condition - could have been new. £40 and then a case has made the train commute almost bearable again (almost).
