my daughter has had 2 of these for well over 18 with absolutely no charge socket issues. not sure on the sd card issue but they have loads of apps on them and aren't full. Infact I've also bought a third refurb one Argos via eBay as they are so cheap! awesome machines for children imo
HappyHooligan
I got a couple of these for my boys last Christmas and sent them straight back. Reading the other comment it seems they have sorted the Google play store issue out, but the other thing was that you could not move apps to the sd card. You were only able to save movies/photos/music to the sd card and all the apps and games had to be stored on the internal drive which wasn't that big. Have they sorted that out yet? Also when I visited their Facebook page there were endless complaints about the power socket on the tablet being faulty too. I didn't risk it and sent them back. Shame as the software they provide is great for kids and parental controls are great. The protective cover was dumb though!
e

I think the SD card issue you mentioned regarding apps is the same for a lot or mkst of other phones and tablets isn't it? I'm not sure but I think I read something about it with Samsung Galaxy's as well so not sure if its the same across the board with SD card storage.

This would be great if they were on a format that made them playable like the Vita or 3DS.

Got Sonic CD as a freebie from Amazon and it's just rubbish with touchscreen controls.

Still voted hot as its a good price for those who want it but ruins classic games IMO.

Good job they didn't want to copy the original game that was brought out for the Commodore 64 back in the day it would take hours to load and then error just before it got to the end of the tape ah those where the days:)

I thought that I just had a faulty cassette, glad other people shared my pain!


No, far more likely that your Datasette had slightly misaligned heads. The little screw under that tiny hole in the middle would have sorted that out for you.
Nice one, thanks for the heads up

Which is best value, this, Memo HD or the Nook?

They seen somebody with the £70 Bush one and wanted one of those but surely out of the 4 that have been mentioned, one is the best and better than the Bush?
Still in stock in all my local stores . . . .

So, this, the Asus memopad or Tegra note?

Same quandary here. Would welcome any input.

I've got the memopad and so far I am happy with it. The screen is not amazing but it does the job and the expandable storage is invaluable. The only downside is that within 2 days the screen picked up a perfect scratch from something touching it so it can't be that resistant.

The speakers are very good though as has been mentioned before.

Whilst the 199 quid price is very good for a 10" tablet, review sites out there point out some flaws such as average battery life (6 hours without keyboard, 8 hours with - not the 12 hours claimed by HP), a dim screen (I'd also argue the screen res is average, especially since the Nexus 10 beats it by a long way and that's been out for over 18 months now), heavy and also no USB charging (requires a power adaptor).

A shame there still hasn't been a 10" tablet successor to the Nexus 10 that's got both good specs and a reasonable price. The new Galaxy Tab S out in a few weeks has excellent specs, but a stupid pricier-than-an-iPad RRP fof 449 quid (PC World has it for 420 quid, still 21 quid more than an iPad Air!). If you can find a Nexus 10 deal (there's been a few on HotUKDeals), it's still a desirable purchase, IMHO.

If you want a laptop buy a laptop, if you want a tablet buy one. Dont buy something that is one thing and tries to be another.

Or what?

Or you'll end up with something that is neither a laptop or a tablet....

Even though it definitely is a tablet, and even though many people buy transformers or bluetooth keyboards/docks for their tablets?

Don't buy an extension for your snooker cue, if you want a short cue but one, if you want a long cue buy one.

People can probably work out for themselves if they want a dedicated tablet, laptop, or hybrid device. People's needs and preferences differ.

Just buy the apps on a desktop pc using your existing amazon account

You can't unless it is linked to the device. Once it's linked you can buy through a pc. The only way to do it without an android device would be to use an android emulator for the pc (I used BlueStacks to do so before I got my android)

Thanks paramoreRyan, I'll try bluestacks

Not everyone can use the Play store, I haven't used it for years since I tried to purchase an app for 99p and they flagged my account as suspicious. The only way they will unlock it is to send them a copy of my passport, drivers licence and a utility bill, that's never going to happen and so I now spend my cash with Amazon, it has all the apps I need!

For a power user, 512mb is inadequate, but for a work phone or for a second phone or someone who just wants to go on Facebook or Twitter occasionally then this is a good deal.
I got the Galaxy y for £20 and it only has 160mb of ram. Works totally fine, and best of all is small. A lot of people seem to think that everyone needs some quad core large screened expensive phone that hardly fits in a pocket. To make phone calls and text, and occasionally use the internet these budget phones are a great buy.

Plenty of them on Aliexpress, for instance:

What about using this in car with auto guard app to recording journey or against people whose reversing on traffic lights an saying you hit them? Is camera good enough for this?

In this case (under £50) much better option is small but good quality car camera like E-PRANCE New Mini 0801. You install it and forget. With 32GB card it records at least 5h of video with sound, in a loop, in 3-5 minutes chunks with auto deleting the oldest. It starts when you start the car. It has its own battery as well.

What sdcards are you using in this? looking for a 64gb one
Just noticed there is finally screen protectors for this on fleebay. The amount of smudges the screen on these get is insane!
Great for movies with the front facing speakers. ALL tablets should have this!
I have 2 of these now and love em to death, screen is very good plays full HD content floorlessly from a class 10 micro sdhc card. the speakers are also very good. Battery life is excellent easly meeting the claimed 10 hours, i squeezed out just under 14 by killing the wifi, GPS etc and dropping the brightness.

For me the deciding factor was the micro sdhc slot, all well and good backing upto the cloud but to me it is retarded not to have your own physical backups locally. But then again a an a PAW.

Unfortunately I get to spend alot of time where wifi is frowned on so ebook / movies / music etc on the sdhc is fantastic while waiting.

really can not recommend this tablet highly enough, there is alway better and brighter out there but the tegra strikes an excellent price balance IMHO. If this where a tenner cheaper i would buy it just to have a spare.

Not really branding everything as "Chinese tack" shows a distinct lack of knowledge about Chinese products as you have to bare in mind that the vast majority of electrical goods are manufactured in China or use Chinese manufactured parts.

For instance

My monitor : made in China , 4 years old now and never had a problem.
RC Transmitter : made in China 3 years old never failed , Futaba transmitter cost 5 times the price failed within warranty ( and replaced)
Soldering iron , made in China , 5 years old only had to change the tip but you would with any.

Some people expect to pay £10 and get a Galaxy S4 and when they dont they start moaning.

I have an Iocean X7 HD and a Cubot X6 , for the price you cannot complain, screen is awesome , plays every game ive tried camera is great and theyve been man handled and dropped multiple times by people having a look and theres not a mark on them.

Realistic expectations are the key here.

these Chinese phones are not worth the effort I have had two.one quad core 1.5 turbo mtk chip and one octacore 1.7 mtk chip.the problem is the chips are so slow however many cores you have.none are as fast as a snapdragon 400 or even 200 so take my advice buy either moto g or second hand s3 or nexus 4.all 3 phones are much better.the last Chinese phone I had a zopo octacore was no faster than a moto g and rebooted all time and and some apps just don't work on them.plus battery run down very fast seemed to have no stamina.you can get a nexus 4 for around 120 in excellent condition on ebay

My guess is you are just another anti-chinese phone moron and have never owned a chine phone past the mtk6572 cpu.

Everything beyond this has been very fast and very snappy. The mtk 6589 quad core was much faster than the s2 and at least equally as quick as the s3. The mtk 6592 in the phone i have now can play anything and run anything and the cpu benchmarks are the highest iv seen in any phones its only beaten in gpu benchmarks. Benchmarks don't say too much about the phones usage but i also own a galaxy s5 and in normal usage including games and general snappiness and responsiveness i notice no difference at all.

The only negative thing about these newer chine phones has been the gps which is crap so far with all mtk chipsets even tho its claimed to be fixed on the 6589 and above.

Stop talking out of your ass and try owning one before sharing your opinion.
I share my opinion as I had two including the zopo octacore model and they are junk so behave yaself and stop encouraging people to buy rubbish

Went today, the app was great for discount on the overpriced food, but useless for the ride queue times. It wasn't updated and was incorrect all day, showing 15 mins but when you arrive at the entrance of the ride it was more like 45 mins.
Was there yesterday, Queued for 40 mins for the smiler, the rest of the coasters were < 15 mins queue. Some like oblivion were literally just walk on.. It was lush!

No fast passes required, and we did everything with hours of time over.

Plus with this app which i only downloaded to track the queue times and magically found the discounts saved us £8 on burgers and £2 on doughnuts :)

I love theme parks but hate Merlin - £10 to fast track on to Smiler! It's an OK ride but nothing spectacular.

Yea it's a rip off, the biggest gripe I have is the £6.00 to park, daylight robbery. Kids enjoyed CBeebies land though.

The car park charge would only be justifiable if they agreed to fund a new access road (which the local authority wants).


The traffic can be terrible for us locals

Is it still worth getting a dual core? I'm no tech expert, but I though everything was quad or above now.


Yes & No? .. & 50/50? .. as it purely depends on some of many factors .. namely some of which being that ofcourse of Cost? (eg. your Budget?), &/or that Size? (not all 8", 9", & 10" Devices come as Quad-Core for some reason? .. whereas the much Smaller 7" Devices these Days tend to have Quad-Core as almost the 'Standard'?), the Bundle? (the Dual-Core comes as both 3G-Enabled, &/or with a half decent Data-allowance Package .. whereas the Quad-Core comes with neither?, &/or is Wi-Fi only!, so ..... ) or .....

android logoAn Introduction to Android

In the world of mobile computing, phones and wearables, the iOS vs Android dividing line is fundamental, as the vast majority of mobile devices use either of these operating systems to power their systems. You’ll come across Android devices all the time when you shop for mobile phones, tablets, TV boxes and many more digital products, but what is it, and why does it matter for your purchase? This buyer’s guide explains everything you need to know.

One of the World’s Leading Operating Systems for Mobile Devices

Androids used to be associated with science fiction B-movies, but not any longer. Since the advent of smartphones, billions of people around the world have come to associate the word ‘Android’ with the operating system that keeps their favourite devices going.

As with most tech phenomena, Android traces its roots to California where, in 2003, a small company of the same name was founded. The founders aimed to create a specialist operating system for devices like phones and cameras that could adapt to the needs of users and use tools like geolocation more effectively.

At the time, smartphones were little known but Android were on the ground level, seeing the potential for advanced software to power these revolutionary devices. Google also saw their potential, purchasing Android in 2005 and taking their R&D team under their wing.

In 2007, Google struck a deal with some of the world’s biggest phone manufacturers, including Sony, Samsung and HTC. Under this agreement, Android would be made freely available as a Linux-based operating system. Developers would be able to add new features when inspiration hit them, but the overall code for the system remained in Google’s control. Since then, they have regularly released updates to the more than 1 billion Android handsets on the market.

What Kinds of Things Can Android Be Used For?

So, that’s a potted history of where Android came from, but you might still be wondering, what exactly it is and what can it be used for?

Android is what allows you to swipe across on your smartphone, use the virtual keyboard, and turn your phone into a gaming device with virtual controllers. It provides the sensors used to detect things like location, distance moved and temperature and motion sensors that identify how a phone is moved (handy for things like racing games). All of these functions of your phone are made possible by the underlying Android code.

When you boot up into Android, you’ll come across the Home screen. This is where all of your apps are stored. You can use it to access the web and your e-mails, or place a news sticker on the front page, and it can also be heavily customised if you desire (much more so than iOS interfaces).

The Home screen also provides access to the app database - an ever-growing repository of apps programmed in Java, usually via the Android Development Toolkit. Most of the time, apps are downloaded from Google Play, which has a huge database of software, all accessible via a simple swipe.

That’s the basic interface and how Android works. If you’ve ever used a smartphone or tablet, you’ll appreciate how diverse the uses of apps can be. From navigation aids like Google Maps to gambling apps, news readers, fitness apps, live streaming sports events, games, personal calendars, communication tools like Skype and dieting apps to spreadsheets and weather forecasters, apps have a massive range of uses.

So, the question of what Android can be used for is unanswerable: Its uses are becoming wider and more impressive all the time. Just check Google Play to find out what developers have come up with recently.

Android: Monotune

Android Devices: Specifications to Look For

When you purchase Android devices from HotUKDeals merchants, you’ll generally encounter a list of specifications, something which applies for smartphones, tablets, TV boxes and wearables. Here are some of the most important things to look for:

Android Phones:

  • Dimensions - How large the phone itself is (and how much it weighs). Will generally also include a measure of the screen size.
  • Processor (CPU) - The smartphone’s heart, the CPU governs how quickly apps will work and how efficiently your phone deals with video and photos. At the moment, high-end models like the Samsung S7 come with quad-core processors with four modules running at around 2Ghz each or octa-core models with 8 modules.
  • GPU - The graphical processing unit, which determines how smooth video playback and gaming will be. Again, as a benchmark, the Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with an Adreno 530, running at 624Mhz.
  • Display - Look at the size of the display, but also the resolution. As a benchmark, the Nokia 6 comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, so aim for something around there.
  • Storage - How much data your phone can hold (including music, photos, documents and video). Anything from 32 to 128GB is probably enough to see you through.
  • Memory - How much memory your phone has will influence its speed and reliability. Look for around 4-8GB of RAM at the least.
  • Camera - For many smartphone users, the camera is the most important tool. Most Android phones come with front and rear cameras. The front camera usually delivers a slightly lower resolution than the rear camera. Look for around 16MP from the rear for high quality images.android smartphone
  • Chassis - The material that your phone is made from can be crucial. Materials like anodised aluminium are top of the range, looking great and providing a resilient shell for the advanced tech inside.
  • Android Pay - The latest smartphones (and tablets) should also be configured to use a new service called Android Pay. Similar to Google Wallet, Android Pay allows users to store payment information on Android devices. With Android Pay installed, you can then use your phone to make secure contactless payments.

Android TV Boxes:

  • Dimensions - Measured in mm or cm (usually), the dimensions of your box can be an important deciding factor. Ideally, a TV box would be sleek and unobtrusive, so that you can slip it away out of sight.
  • DRM Approvals - DRM is a legal feature of Android boxes that determines whether they can receive HD streams from high-profile services like Amazon or Netflix. Your box manufacturer should clearly state whether their device has the necessary DRM permissions. If they don’t, you can still watch Netflix, but not in HD.
  • Resolution - TV boxes are built to deal with certain screen resolutions, so don’t get stuck with one that can’t handle HD. Check that it can deal with at least 1080hp.
  • Connections - If your box has an HDMI out and USB connectors, that should be enough to hook it up to your high-spec TV and laptop when required. If not, you could end up with a useless box that needs to be replaced. Go for HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0, not earlier versions.
  • Connectivity - Not the same as connections, connectivity refers to how the box communicates with other devices. Look for boxes with dual-band wi-fi and gigabit Ethernet connections. Bluetooth 4.0 and above could be handy too.
  • Firmware updates - The software that runs Android TV boxes needs to be updated every now and then, just like with phones. Check that your box offers OTA firmware updates that automatically handle any software changes.
  • Controllers - Android boxes will usually come with their own controller to navigate the TV guides they use. Look for controllers that you can get to grips with and avoid needlessly complicated models.

Android Tablets

  • Dimensions - How large your tablet is, and the size of the screen. Between 8 and 8.9 inches is standard (and more than enough for most people).
  • Weight - Tablets vary in their size and weight, but around 350g is standard and easy to handle.
  • Processor - With tablets, processing power really matters, particularly if you use them for demanding image or video processing applications. Look for quad-core or octa-core processors, with at least 1.2 Ghz of juice.
  • Graphics - The same applies for the GPU (more so if you love streaming video or gaming). Check the resolution as well. Around 1536 x 2048 is the new standard for high-end tablets like the Samsung Galaxy S2.android smartphone tablet tv box
  • Cameras - As with smartphones, tablets tend to have front and rear cameras. Again, look at around 4MP for the front and 8MP for the rear camera.
  • RAM - Anything above 3GB should be more than enough memory for everyday tablet users.
  • Disk space - Storage space matters if you are taking thousands of photos, downloading movies or capturing hours of video. Anything above 32GB will be fine, but hardcore data junkies should go for 128GB if possible.
  • Operating system - Obviously, this will be Android, but check the version. Look for Android 5.0.2 and later.

Android Watches

  • Dimensions - size can really matter with a smartwatch. On one hand, some people like larger watches that provide more viewing space, but no-one wants a clunky, poorly designed watch on their wrist. Anything larger than 5 x 4 cm will tend to seem a little oversized.
  • Weight - When buying online, it’s hard to gauge how a watch will feel on your wrist and weight plays a big part in this. Around 75g is standard and should feel absolutely fine.
  • Processor - They may be small, but Android watches pack plenty of punch. Or at least they should if you want to get the most from them. Look for quad-core 1.2 Ghz CPUs and they shouldn’t let you down.
  • Memory - Watches don’t need vast amounts of memory, so around 512MB of RAM will suffice. Look for devices with a couple of GB of storage as well, to give your data and apps room to breathe.
  • Connectivity - Bluetooth 4.0 and above, and wi-fi 802.11 at a minimum, as well as GPS functionality and maybe a micro USB could be handy.
  • Extra features - Think about what your watch needs. Check for e-mail notifications and composition, mapping, GPS, MP3 playback, speed measurements, distance tracking and more.
  • Battery life - Absolutely crucial for smartwatches. Look for long battery lives of around 50 hours of talk time or 100 hours on standby.

The Many Different Types of Android Devices

Android hasn’t just become a staple of phones. It’s actually been integrated into a whole range of devices, with more coming online all the time. Here are some of the devices to have a look out for when you check HotUKDeals:

  • Android Smartphones - The first application of Android was in the very first smartphones, and they are still the most common use of the operating system. State of the art phones like the Samsung S7 rely on Android to power their user interface, providing a huge range of apps for owners to use.

  • Android Tablets - Coming slightly after Android smartphones, Android tablets started emerging around 2009 and remain locked in competition with Apple’s iOS based iPads. Buyers can expect far lower prices for basic Android models, as well as a wider range of sizes and looks. At the high-end, the processing power of octa-core CPUs allows Android tablets to deliver multi-tasking more effectively, and the dual front and rear camera standard is better for photography fans. Android’s app database is also easier to use than iTunes and doesn’t require devices to be synched to Apple’s systems, so there are plenty of reasons to go for Android tablets.
  • Android TV Boxes - Most of the smart TV boxes you’ll come across when subscribing to services like NOW TV use Android to power their interfaces. That’s because they essentially use downloaded apps to show their TV guides and the options available to users. Android boxes are especially handy for streaming content from services like YouTube, Amazon and Netflix and for using with intermediary streaming services like Kodi. With their flexibility, they are becoming an increasingly popular complement to HD TVs across the UK.
  • Android Watches - Android has even found its way into millions of smart watches in recent years. Again, it’s down to the apps that these watches use to deliver their functionality. Essentially, these nifty devices combine the timekeeping of classic watches (and often their appearance) with much more modern features like email and call notifications, distance tracking and even voice activated message composition.

Choosing the Ideal Android Phone or Tablet

Now we’ve introduced the main Android products and looked at their typical specs, it’s time to briefly lay out how to choose the right product for your needs.

With smartphones, the first thing to decide is between Apple and Android. As noted above, Android phones and tablets tend to have better cameras, are more adaptable and can be more powerful, if you choose a high-end option. Apple phones are brilliantly made, reliable and full of great features, but the choice isn’t clear cut.

When it comes to choosing a phone, think about your personal needs. If you use your phone on the road a lot, or by holding it in one hand, a smaller model will make the most sense. If you like to prop up your phone and sit back to watch streaming video, a tablet or larger smartphone is the way to go.

Think about cameras as well. If you are a serious photographer, 8MP cameras will be essential but if you just love to take hundreds of snaps and don’t mind mediocre quality, don’t spend extra for a premium camera. Focus on having more storage space instead (or a good cloud based storage service).

For gamers, processing speed is key. That means going for up to date Snapdragon, octa-core processors with slick GPUs and at least 4GB of RAM.

And last but not least, think about battery life. If you need your phone for business and take it on trains or buses, don’t risk running out of gas and go for a long battery life. For others, cheaper models with shorter lives will do just as well (and there are always power banks to supplement your charge).

Deciding How to Pick an Android Based TV Serviceandroid banner

Picking the right streaming box can determine whether you have access to the shows and movies you love, so it matters.

Make sure that your Android box has the DRM permissions to access Amazon and Netflix. If not, you’ll struggle to watch your favourite shows in anything beyond stodgy low resolution.

Go for a really easy to set up box as well. Products from Roku and Amazon Fire tend to be simpler to get up and running and have well-designed controllers that can be mastered in just a few minutes.

Then again, there are more complex Android boxes on the market as well, like the Easytone Q-Box, which can be used to access more obscure streaming services. If you have some technical chops and time to spare for getting up to speed, they could be the right choice.

Choosing an Android Based Smartwatch or Wearable Device

With smart watches, there are a number of things to consider, but comfort will be chief among them. If your watch doesn’t feel right on your wrist, is too heavy or clunky for example, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of it as you could. Check the dimensions and measure them up against your wrist, and read customer reviews carefully. You should get a good picture for how the watch feels, even if you can’t try it on in person.

Battery life could also be a major factor when buying a smartwatch. If you want a long battery life that’s fine too, but you may sacrifice some graphical quality in the process. Similarly, if you want a crystal-clear display you will definitely lose some battery life, so it’s a toss-up.

Think about features as well. If you are into sports and fitness, you’ll probably want an Android watch with GPS and distance tracking, as well as step counters and an accelerometer, and sleep tracking could also be useful. Smartwatches that specialise in fitness will have more of those features and also be more accurate in recording fitness data, so they are the ones to go for.

Some watches also have the ability to use both iOS and Android apps - which can be a huge advantage if you have an iPhone or iPad but don’t want an Apple Watch. Pebble in particular offers versatile watches with great compatibility. This is also helpful because the Android app selection is actually smaller than Apple’s, so if you go for a watch with dual compatibility you can have the best of both worlds.

Aside from all those factors, style is inevitably going to factor into your decision. Watches are fashion statements, even if they are high-tech devices, which is why labels like Michael Kors are branching out into smartwatch design. Check out their range and you might find something with the features you need and some genuine style.

How to Buy Android Devices

Whether you are looking to buy a tablet, smartphone, watch or TV box, new Android deals are being announced every day, and the best place to look for them are the HotUKDeals Android listings.

Have a look at the deals on offer but don’t make a purchase straight away. With tech products, it makes sense to visit a store to see the product in action and talk to a specialist about their features.

With HotUKDeals merchants like Currys, John Lewis, Tesco, Argos and GAME selling Android devices, you should be able to visit a store to see your product in action. You don’t have to buy it there, just double check that it’s the right product for you.

After that, find a deal and make the purchase. Along with high street retailers mentioned above, you’ll find Android deals from merchants like ShopTo, Amazon, Very and Gearbest, so shop around or wait until the perfect deal arrives.

If you can, try to time your purchase to coincide with Black Friday (in late November), when tech companies and retailers tend to drop their Android prices. But in the tech world, discounts emerge on a weekly basis, so just keep your eyes open and seize your chance for a great Android deal.
