I bought this (and posted a deal) last time the Android one was around this price. After 3 moths+ of using it as my principle tablet it's "OK". I use the keyboard but not the stylus much. Having 4GB RAM does make it quite good at coping with almost anything.

It's still a lot of money for a tablet, but it's more reasonable than the normal price, which is far too high.

Also note that the note taking app on *Android* does not do OCR even though Lenovo demoed it doing that at launch. The Windows one does. But even with this is £90 more.

Probably best to edit your title to say Amazon and they are £9.50 on subscribe and save and then cancel.
I personally think it's a bit expensive and there have been better deals on amazon previously.

These are actually really good, bought one on the last deal for like £4, made my speeds skyrocket compared to my 2g dongle, especially my ping (but tbf I was using a old mini usb reciever) but this is well worth the money, probably the only downside is the range, it's just about average, luckily my router isn't too far away from it, but others may struggle.
Now £13.99, it is Sunday evening but someone needs to Wake Up
Got this for my Sony Vaio Windows 10 laptop when it was last on offer. Completely transferred my laptop, wifi connectivity is so much quicker, getting ridiculously quick speeds too and all I did was plug it in and nothing else.

I bought one of these for the same price about a year ago. For £29 it's an absolute steal.
It's perfectly fine for basic tasks such as web browsing, office use and watching films etc. It will play basic games too, although I've not really used it much for that.
Got a generic case with a Bluetooth keyboard and it becomes a tiny laptop. I've managed to write reports on it on the train and make notes in meetings.
I wouldn't get the 16Gb version but this one is fine.
These should be perfectly usable tablets, daughter has 8" version which is same spec and I have 10", love mine and has replaced laptop for everyday use. Only concern as stated in. Other comment would be that icons in desktop mode are going to be really small. There is a dedicated forum for Linx tablets if you Google.
Is it possible to install a basic Linux distro on it? Or is it locked?
I have an irulu web n walk.
Very handy if you keep it clear of junk. Great for web browsing, downloading, and playing .mkv video.

I just turn off real time virus protection, and keep on top of deleting crap on the internal memory.
Its a full windows tablet, so not uber fast, but bloody handy for me.

Avoid if you have big sausage fingers. As clicking on the small icons can be tricky.
Have it connected with TV and kids love it. :)
You can even stick Windows 10 on it and runs pretty cool.

i bought a tab A 10.1" a few months ago to replace my broken xperia tablet & its great, I think this is the same but smaller at 7".
this is the closest thing I could find to replace an iPod touch that I'm fed up with because of iOS & itunes

i struggle to consider anything a deal when its just the normal price. these things are not anything special, they are cheap tablet devices with low specs at a low price, nothing special.
I bought two of these for my monsters. Since then we have had no less that 3 replacements - all have been new and all have been no quibble. The charging port seems to be a weakness but for the money they are excellent! Fire OS is quite locked down but that's exactly what I wanted for my kids to keep them out of harms way - far more suitable for minors than android iMO

If I had a damaged one will they replace with new one


No, they will replace it with a factory refurbished device of the same model.
My kid has a Amazon fire, when it dies i will not buy one again. Android is better. The internal storage of the fire is rubbish and it fills it up with everything for itself before it even lets you put anything on it, the amount of system settings you have control over is limited, they are plagued with charging problems, mines having problems with that despite changing the usb cable. Amazon will not replace them only ask you to send them in for repair etc, I've had to factory reset it twice because it goes strange and refuses to read the sd card that everything else in the house is happy to.

Just get a android tablet and download the Amazon app then you have the best of both.

Ignore my last comment. These do come with ads!
I thought the John Lewis ones don't come with the ads?
If anything it's a better deal to buy at Amazon as their returns and customer care will last longer than the 2 years at John Lewis. A proper cold deal
Where is the savings?
Technically not a hot deal, as it's the standard price for these tablets. True they have new features, but not a hot deal.

So if it says with Alexa does that mean it acts like the Echo? I could tell it to turn on the light and it will?
Probably although not sure if it listens for a wake word, Since they added Alexa to the fireTV I was able to ask it the same commands as the Echo Dot but the difference being I had to hold the voice search button on the fireTV remote to activate alexa.
I'm thinking of picking one of these up for my nephew for his birthday. He plays Minecraft and Roblox. Does the hd8 perform well with both games?

Thanks

No, it doesn't start up with voice commands. So you have to have it switched in the first place for it to respond to Alexa commands.

'Buy any 3 new tablets and save 20%' is slightly better, but roughly the same as 'buy two, get the third half-price'.
Review:http://www.trustedreviews.com/amazon-fire-hd-8-review (7/10)
Bah, the TrustedReviews page isn't even a proper review, just a slight update at the moment, similar to the ExpertReviews site.

Considering getting one of these for my parents to use as a remote control for a Sonos. Does anyone know if the trick to get rid of the ads for free works on this new model?

To be fair I didn't look very hard (Don't google Nexus!) and found this better specc'd 1080p 7" tablet for the same money, ok it's a used price, but I think it helps illustrate my point...

That's actually the 1st gen Nexus 7, which is only 720p. The difference is probably not noticeable on a 7" screen but it also has the much slower Tegra 3 vs Adreno 320 GPU and no rear camera. Neither version have an SD card slot either, which is likely to be a problem on a 16GB tablet.

I'd love to give heat for this, but I just can't get over the fact that the specs are so bad!
Appreciate the effort with the post OP, however similar /better spec can be had for less
(FWIW my Hudl has better specs than this and it's 4 years old! Admittedly it cost more at launch, however reconditioned ones can be had for around £30)
To be fair I didn't look very hard (Don't google Nexus!) and found this better specc'd 1080p 7" tablet for the same money, ok it's a used price, but I think it helps illustrate my point...
Though the screen (but not other hardware) is better, the difference is that the Nexus 7 has reached end of life and isn't supported ( http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/06/21/google-support-site-now-lists-end-life-dates-nexus-devices/ : Nexus 7 (2013): July 2015). The Amazon Fire will be supported for n (pick a number) years yet.

ra11
my only issue is these are $49.99 in US... so its a little cheaper there. How are these better than the recent £34.99 v5 ones though? anyone got a spec comparison chart handy?
I agree, this should be cheaper. The Trusted review of the Amazon Fire points out one change: "The tablet is also capable of new software tricks, including support for Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant".
And darn it, I hadn't noticed that wasn't even a full review, just a little update on the old review (same as ExpertReview's effort - http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/amazon/amazon-fire:( ). They haven't had their hands on it yet.

Edited By: EQL on May 18, 2017 23:39
will likely be £35 through out the year; probably first will be prime day in July.
Waste of money unless you're just buying something for the kids.

Better to put the £50 towards a decent phablet sized phone.

Can't believe they are still selling windows 10 gadgets with only 32 Gb of space, its just not enough in my opinion. I have a Lenovo yoga that came with that. Space was a Constant struggle and updates a nightmare. drove me mad. luckily I manage to put a 240GB SSD in it and its much better and much more usable for things. Don't think I'd buy any windows 10 gadget with less than 64 GB (even better 128GB) myself.

Good price for good spec. I don't really like Windows platform though. Anyone know of a good 8 inch android tablet?

LG G pad 8.3 V500, very good screen, light weight, take micro sd too.

Has to be 8.3 V500, do not mistaken with 8.0 or others versions, the other version are worse.



Samsung Tab S1 or S2 are also good. But they are way more expensive, not worth it. If to pay the price of Tab S, you would be better to get the G pad 8.3

Would still like to get the Nexus 7 going again as that is much more practical for my use.
I left it too long before charging (only about a week) and now it just seems to have died. Any suggestions?
Known problem. Plug it in then just press both the power button and the volume up button at the same time. Keep holding until it starts up. But don't leave it uncharged again, it's bad for the battery to leave it discharged.


Sorted - thank you.
It gave up the ghost about a month ago and after googling and trying all sorts I gave up. Tried again today as per your tip and eureka!
If going on holiday it looks as if the only solution is to leave it on charge

How come phones get better and better every six months, but other than the new nvidia shield theres barely anything out there better than a £135 on launch 2013 nexus 7?
The 2013 Nexus 7 wasn't launched at £135 - it was £200. But, yes, I'm looking to replace my Nexus just now, and struggling to find anything decent that's better for under £250 from a recognisable brand.
I've heard Samsung tablets are pretty good
I did say I wanted better. X)
I've not been a fan of Samsung devices, since the Galaxy S3, and to get a better tablet than my Nexus from Samsung, you're still pushing £250. (And we use Samsung Tabs at work, and I'm still not a fan).
I was so happy with my Nexus 7 2013. To be fair, even after nearly 4 years, I can't think of a tablet at that price-point that even comes close to it. That said, I sold mine a few months ago and joined the growing market of "phablets" ;)

I decided to leave it just now, and bought myself a new Chromebook to replace the one I gave my daughter when her's failed.

I've still got the Nexus, and an Honor 7 for day to day stuff, and the Chromebook if I need a proper keyboard when I'm away from home.

Have to agree with you regarding non-compatibility for Tab 2 A10-70 as this appears to only have one cut-out, the case for my Tab 2 A10-70F has 3 speaker cut-outs and 1 camera cut-out in the back and a headphone jack cut-out in the top!

Thanks, received mine today and I can confirm that it DOES NOT fit TAB 2 A10-70F. I have updated deal accordingly.

This morning there were 3 or 4 left in Poundland, Cowick Street, Exeter.
Bit of a squeeze but my Asus 10" netbook fits, some protection when using it out and about.
It seems well made for the money.
Also plenty of sleeves for Apple tablets.
Saw them the other day didn't think they were that much of the ordinary
These are excellent quality. Picked up a smaller white one with a zip closing for 7 inch tablets. Really well made and padded.

It's Superdrugs, as they also have dispensaries in some stores, they will follow the guidelines of only 2 packs per purchase.
Brilliant price. Hope they let you have more than 2 boxes a time
Branded medicines like this contain exactly the same active ingredients as generic alternatives. Which means that the generics are just as effective.

Generic paracetemol costs about 18-20p for a 16 pack from almost any supermarket* or pharmacy. This deal is hugely overpriced product reduced to a reasonable price for what it actually contains.

* maybe not Tesco Metro/Sainsbury Local/etc. These often only stock more expensive branded products.

Tablet: Mobile Computing Device

Tablets are portable computers featuring screens with a size of seven inches or above, generally no bigger or more cumbersome than an average book. Typical tablet features include a camera, microphone, touchscreen controls and on screen keyboard for typing. The iPad from Apple is the most popular tablet developed to date.

No More Dream of the Future: Tablets

Tablets existed within the realm of sci-fi, film and TV from the mid-20th century when Isaac Asimov first described a calculator pen in his novel Foundation. The Star Trek films and TV series made frequent use of tablet computing devices in numerous references, while the tablet encyclopaedia computer described in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, written in 1979, is very similar to modern tablets.

Pen computing and the development of stylus electronic handwriting systems were the base origins for tablet systems, with the first electrical stylus device patented back in 1888. Patented touchscreen devices and early forms of tablets continued throughout the 20th century, until the launch of the first commercial tablet, the GRIDPad in 1989. The origins of the iPad can be traced back to the Apple Newton of 1991. In 2001 Microsoft held a demo of its first tablet PC, a computer featuring the use of a pen and numerous developments in devices using handwriting recognition occurred after this date. The first Apple iPad was launched in April 2010, with more than 250 million iPads sold up to January 2015 it proved the most popular tablet form. Android tablets have since overtaken iPad in popularity due to increased affordability and enhanced features. Smaller Windows-based tablets, such as the Surface Pro 4 by Microsoft, are a good choice for productivity and offer comparable features as laptops. iPads and Android tablets are ideal for streaming entertainment, playing games and communicating, but people with creative or work needs may find that Windows tablets provide necessary access to a wide range of software.

The Biggest Tablet Brands

What to Look For in a Good Tablet

First off, personal preference is important when it comes to choosing the best tablet for any individual. Everybody has a different sized hand and palm, you need to opt for the tablet that sits best in your palm and offers easily accessible controls. The tablet best suited to a man standing over 6 foot tall is unlikely to suit the most petite woman or teen. So spend time experimenting with tablets before purchasing.

ipads tablet

Operating Systems

The greatest difference between tablets is the type of operating system utilised, Apple devices run iOS, Android use Google operating systems and Windows tablets use the Microsoft system. The iOS and Android operating systems are much the same, similar to the manner smartphones operate. Where iOS and Android excel is within the areas of media consumption such as gaming, reading Ebooks, sharing photos and communicating via e-mail, Facebook, Instagram, etc.

Windows tablets can be used as laptop replacements and should be the choice of anybody looking for a tablet to conduct the same functions as a laptop. The downside of Windows tablets is their expense when compared to Android or iOS devices.

Amazon Kindle tablets are dedicated to readers accessing products via Amazon and use a custom version of the Android operating system, the Fire OS. Tablets aimed at children are also available, providing custom access to services for security and safety purposes. When it comes to app downloads, consumers need to be aware that the size of the marketplace for Android apps can potentially cause problems with viruses or malware. Buyers still need to be very careful which apps are downloaded to Android.

Different Operating Systems: Pros and Cons for Tablets

The Apple iOS was the prime mover in the introduction of tablets so it's hardly surprising they are still in the lead when it comes to apps that are optimised for use with tablets. It's easy to use any Apple tablet, children can be remarkably quick with these devices and the intuitive interface is great, but it's not easy to customise these devices to user preferences. Prices for Apple tablets are higher than Android on the whole, and Android does offer more features.

Price is a big advantage with Android tablets, with some of the cheaper models offering features that can beat or match iOS. One drawback of this system is that the Google Play Store doesn't always feature great quality control, malware on available apps has been discovered.

Windows tablets are more powerful, and the possibility to use the devices in laptop mode can be beneficial for some users. Apps for tablets are not widely available at present.

One of the Most Powerful Tablets on the Market: Apple´s iPad Pro

Display Size

Display screen size can be an important factor when choosing the best tablet to suit your requirements. If you plan to watch TV and movies with your tablet, you're probably advised to opt for a 10-inch screen. The major drawback of tablets with large screens is they can cause some wrist pain when held for long periods of time and you may find them a little large to take everywhere on a daily basis. 7-inch screen tablets are easier to hold and about the size as a paperback novel. It's easier to carry 7-inch tablets around. Tablets between 8 and 9 inches in size are proving the happy medium for many consumers, giving optimum portability and user experience.

Resolution and Aspect Ratio

Screen resolution should be the highest available at the price you're prepared to pay, 163ppi is the minimum resolution to look for. Aspect ratio is another important consideration. If you plan to use your tablet for watching movies then you are best advised to opt for a widescreen tablet which will display movies widescreen when held horizontally. Using your tablet primarily for browsing the web and chatting gives you the ability to choose a product with a squarer screen. Most Androids feature widescreen display at a ratio of 16:9, while iPads have 4:3 screen display.

microsoft surface tablet

Connectivity

All tablets feature WiFi connectivity and generally also provide Bluetooth. Cellular connectivity is not a standard option. If you need to access the Internet at all times when you're out and about, signing up for cellular, 3G or 4G coverage will be essential. As long as your provider has available coverage you will be able to access the Internet wherever you're located. Cellular and 4G contracts give the fastest speeds and best accessibility, while 3G contracts will only allow connection via 3G signals. If you're aware you plan to use your tablet in areas WiFi is not available you may want to opt for a tablet that takes a SIM. PAYG or contract terms will cost more, however, it's possible to reduce charges by using the same SIM in a smartphone when choosing 4G connectivity, meaning the tablet can also be used for phone calls. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to swap files with other Bluetooth devices in the vicinity and to stream entertainment direct to your tablet.

Ports

Tablets usually feature at least one USB port (exept for iPads, they only offer a Lightning port to connect other devices, which means that you´ll need an adapter), as well as a 3.5mm port for your headphones. Some devices feature ports that can be connected to HD TVs using HDMI cables. Memory card slots are also available on some tablets.

Storage

Storage of 16GB should be an absolute minimum requirement for any tablet, it's also a good idea to check out how much of this space is occupied by the operating system on the device. Ideally you should purchase a tablet with larger capacity in addition to any cloud storage deals that may be available. Some tablets provide options to increase storage using SD cards, however, this could have a detrimental effect on tablet performance.

microsoft iconia tabletPerformance

Tablet performance is based on processor and memory, dual-core or quad-core processors improve performance, with octa-core processing providing the best performance. Sourcing a tablet with high levels of RAM also results in better speeds and performance levels. Different types of tablets provide processors from a variety of manufacturers, most Androids and all iPads feature ARM processors while Intel has made inroads into this market over recent years and provides processors for Samsung tablets. Intel processors are the most highly regarded processors currently on the market and are commonly used in all Windows tablets.

Cameras

The camera feature on tablets is not among the best, one camera on the front is the norm for video calling considerations. Rear cameras allow video shooting and have better photography features. When a good camera on tablets is a necessity, don't opt for less than 5MP.

Battery Life and Other Features

Battery recharge times can be important factors to consider when checking out different tablets and you should expect battery life of six hours minimum.

Other features to take into account before buying tablets include Bluetooth and NFC, Infrared transmitters (IR blasters) which can be used to control devices around the home and whether wireless charging is available. It's possible to connect Android or iPad tablets to TVs via the HDMI ports.

Proprietary charging stations are a common feature of all iPads, meaning all peripherals need to be purchased from Apple. Android and Windows tablets can be used with any Micro or full sized USB charger.

Accessorize Your Tablet

It's possible to purchase a variety of cables or adapters to enable tablet connections to speakers, TVs and computers. Check out the full specification of any tablet prior to purchase if you intend to connect your tablet to other types of device. Micro SD cards can give added external storage for tablets, if a memory card slot is featured on the tablets. It's also possible to connect external storage devices that feature WiFi access to your tablet.

It's a good idea to purchase a protective case for your tablet. Many of the cases on sale can be used as tablet stands or feature keyboards as an additional bonus.

Signature Type Cover for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4

Gaming With a Mobile Device

Tablets with higher specifications are better for gaming, for example the more expensive Android models, Apple iPad and Microsoft tablets. You'll need a high performance tablet with impressive graphics to have the best gaming experiences and Android does score highly in this area. There is greater game availability across Android and Windows devices as well.

Apple tablets have the required specifications for gaming on the whole, however, it may only be possible to access the most popular games in the Apple Store as developers won't always write iOS versions. The benefit of gaming on Apple devices is that it's easy to access multiplayer gaming with friends across all Apple devices, just so long as everybody has the same game loaded.

Tablets running Windows have access to all PC gaming options, in this respect they can be said to provide the best gaming experience of all tablets. Expense and available choice of Windows tablets, however, does place limitations on what you can purchase.

Susceptibility to Virus

Downloading suspect apps can be one way to add a virus to any tablet, so it's always best to use trusted providers for apps and downloads of any kind. Antivirus programs are a good way to keep all files and software on tablets protected at all times, there are free antivirus installations for tablets online. Antivirus is not a recommendation for Apple users as iOS is a more secure platform with more security features than commonly available with Windows or Android. Although malware attacks have been recorded on Macs, there is more incentive for criminals to target Windows or Android devices as there are more available malware writing programs for the more popular platforms and attacks on these devices are known to achieve pay offs. Hacking and attacks are more prevalent now, so Mac users should not be complacent about device security at all.

Apple does test all apps before releasing them in the App Store, Android is a more open platform. Avoiding viruses and malware with Android tablets is a case of using common sense. Downloading apps from Google Play or the Amazon App Store offers some protection against malware or virus infections and users should be very suspicious of any apps that can be downloaded directly from e-mails or apps that attempt to force access to tablets. Furthermore, reading the permissions prior to adding any app will give you all the information needed about the app, its functions and what access it requires. It may be tedious to read through all this detail, but really does make sense to be vigilant.

Weight and Size

Finally, the weight and size of your portable tablet are major considerations. The lightest, thinnest tablets are manufactured with better components so don't expect your ideal tablet to be the least expensive and where possible take time to trial a few tablets for weight, size and portability before buying any product.samsung tablet sale

Updates and Upgrades

It's always a good idea to update any tablet with the latest software upgrades, to keep your device running at optimum levels. Searching for software updates through the Settings section of your tablet is one way to discover available updates, however, they won't always be available for the make and model of tablet owned. Tablets running Windows should be easy to automatically update via the Windows regular upgrade system on the device's desktop and Apple device updates will be available from the Mac App Store.

As already discussed, 16GB memory should be the minimum requirement memory requirement and it's not possible to upgrade the internal storage on most iPads, Android or Windows devices. Expansion slots for memory cards and USB ports can offer expanded added memory space and could work out cheaper than buying a tablet with larger memory capacity.

A Cheap Tablet: How to Find it

Price is an important factor: Electronic devices cost money - a lot. But cheap tablets aren´t hard to find, if you consider a few things.

Tablets are cheaper around Black Friday and in the run up to Christmas, but there's really no need to put off your purchase waiting for Black Friday tablet deals. Technology retailers such as Currys, PC World, GAME and Argos offer heavy discounts and tablet deals at various times of year such as the January Sales, cheaper prices could depend on the manufacturer's fiscal year end or may be a result of new products being issued. Retailers also tend to apply discounts on Monday, so if you plan to buy a tablet this could be the best day of the week to source a tablet sale at your favourite retailer.
