​really? 2gb ram, upgradable to marshmallow which means longer battery life. having one myself it's a beauty.

My family's 2013 versions are still going strong unlike the 2012 versions sitting in a drawer. The 2013 version was upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and it still performs great. Yes the tablet is 3 years old but it is still has a good spec for £100 and it is supported directly by Google (at the moment).

Ooh should I return the Amazon Fire 7 Tablet and get this instead?

​i think so. don't quote me, but I think the Amazon fire doesn't have a HD display and this does. also you can get access to Google play store without having to side load it.

I got mine from Asda in September for £79. Despite it being nearly a three year old model, it's difficult to find a tablet that performs better in the non-grey market for under £100.

Only issue for me is the lack of MicroSD card slot - but at the same time I've never had a problem with that.

Pretty good product with no better alternative at this price point, but it's getting a bit long on the tooth IMO, so I'm hesitant to recommend it.

I don't get why this is so cold. It's still a good product with a great screen. The speaker isn't great, but if you want decent sound just use headphones or external speakers. It's probably about the best for £100 now that Tescos have stopped selling the the Hudl 2.

Amazing how the android tablet market has pretty much stopped the last couple of years, hence this three year old machine is still doing the rounds. You wouldn't look at a three year old android phone would you.

I think the Sony Z3 tablet is the best about (I have one, it's great) and that must be two years old now.

Yes!

What's wrong with HDUK? This is still an excellent tablet and at £99 there's no competition.

One little advice: don't upgrade it to Marshmallow, stay with lollipop.

Whats the point in buying this? Staying back in Marshmallow?

The selling point are the specs. I find Marshmallow too heavy. Lollipop is more than fine. One could do the upgrades until the last Lollipop version. Upgrades are sequential. Or one can upgrade in one go from a desktop. There are plenty of guides around.

The one you want is 5.1.1 (LMY48N).

Lollipop has been known to kill these tablets. It killed my last one. Get your tablet off it ASAP.

Google only started rolling Marshmallow for the Nexus in November last year. Tens of millions devices have run Lollipop and they've all been killed?

using mine now, wouldn't be without it!

Had one a month now and can't fault it.

Been running MM on mine for a few months now. No problems at all. Much better battery life due to Doze.

I really don't get people on here voting this cold. Yes, there are plenty of other tablets on here costing half the price but they are half the specs.

If you buy this tablet, you get the added benefit of instant updates unlike Acer, LG, Sony, Lenovo, Amazon, Samsung etc.

If you cant afford £100 then fair enough. On the other hand, pick one of these bad boys up 2nd hand or from CeX to get a warranty for roughly £60.

Heat. Dont really think you can get a better RELIABLE tablet for this price even if it is old
