1GB RAM. Yikes!
1GB RAM is a paper weight. Might be useful for a singular purpose, e.g. a spare device, but at 80 - thats about 70 pounds over priced.

1GB RAM. Yikes!
Not being tech savvy, would one of these replace my now defunct hudl ?
Bizarre how the new M3 uses a CPU slower than midrange mobile.
The Snapdragon 425 is both slow and inefficient
1GB RAM is a paper weight. Might be useful for a singular purpose, e.g. a spare device, but at 80 - thats about 70 pounds over priced.
At least the Hudl 2 had 2 meg of Ram . . And 16Gb internal memory and 2mb camera won,t cut it nowadays. The expandable SD slot, usb slot and micro usb slot are good points. However £64 is not a bad price to give as a present to an elderly relative or a child whom is not conversant with the web and can learn on.
Do these have sim card capabilities? As in the pictures...they have a mobile signal bar guage.
Hi can anyone please tell me is the hudl2 no good anymore

Not sure what picture you're looking at, as I can only see the battery indicator on the ones at Argos.

Yawn. It's perfectly fine for light use, kids, photo viewer, etc. Why does everyone assume that every tablet owner must be a multitasking power user...

Why "yawn"? You need about 512MB of RAM for the OS, and 1/3rd of the remainder for buffer cache. That means 1GB RAM is about 256MB of RAM free for apps - good for a single app. But even pressing "Home" or switching to another app will be slow, as the app has to start from scratch. By comparison, a 2GB RAM device means that poultry 256MB of RAM is really 1.25GB of RAM - ie you get 5x bang for buck; 2GB of RAM is maybe good for 2-3 apps as you hot flip between them.

And for a single app/game, you may be in luck, but as each game/app update makes the thing bigger and more bloated, the 1GB RAM devices will look like a paperweight. For 50 pounds or less, you can look at the Amazon tablets - not great, but good prices. 1GB RAM was "current" about 3-4y ago. 2GB is comfortable. And >=3GB gives some staying power.

Appreciate, for a kids device much of the above wont matter, but you will be surprised how quickly the kids grow and want to run the "next best/big app".

There are LTE variants of some of these tablets, but unless the description says otherwise, they’re most likely to be WiFi only models.

The M3 doesn’t use the SD 425. Huawei use their own Kirin CPUs in the M3, which sits somewhere between the SD 810 and SD 820 in terms of performance. It might not be the fastest mobile CPU, but it’s no slouch either.
Shame they don't do the MediaPad T3 8.0. The M3 8 is a bit too pricey and the T3 10 is too large...

I'd say this is probably less powerful than your Hudl. If you have the Hudl 2, then is defently less.

Thanks for info
thanks for this
Great deal
My old moto g had 1GB ram and managed fine for years. Light users will be A-ok.
Going for the cheap 7"? Much better off with the 8" Lenovo for a fiver more surely? Higher res screen, more ram...

I've used devices at both types of devices at either end of the spectrum, but that claim they're useless just isn't true. If it was that bad they would never sell them or they would be inundated with returns - it is literally scaremongering, just like every Windows 10 Tablet with 1GB of RAM thread. For goodness sake just let people make their own mind up.

2-3GB tablets are substantially more money and many people don't have hundreds to spend on a tablet. I mean obviously paying more money for a tablet gets you a better tablet, but under £100 choice isn't exactly overflowing.

Snapdragon 435 has a better Qualcomm CPU than the 425 but looks to be the same old 28 nm LP that the 425 uses.

My mistake, I didn't know you meant the lite model. I thought you were referring to the 8 inch model, which uses the Kirin SoC.

It comes as 1 and 2GB RAM variants.

They're already discounted...
markweatherill17 h, 3 m ago

I agree, that is fowl.


Somebody made a cluck up in the spelling department...
Some OK discounts, but be aware some are last year's tablets (e.g. the T2 Pro 10) and as such, have Android Lollipop on, rather than Nougat or even Marshmallow. Huawei are unfortunately pretty poor with software updates from what I've seen.

Yes I read that you own two. And yes I know Argos sell the 2GB variant. It was a statement. And if they state 1GB on the site and you happen to get a 1GB variant then you wouldn't have been sold short was my point.

You said 'the specs are wrong' as if the 1GB doesn't exist at all

No, I said the specs were wrong, as in, as they were listed. I know full well that Lenovo sell a 1gb version, but the one being discussed *here* is the 2 gig version. As confirmed by me, who owns two, and Argos, who sell them.
Looks like the 20% discount has now expired?
