Found 30th Oct 2015
The Hudl 2 is now sold out instore and through tesco direct, however Tesco have just released 500 pink and 500 black refurbished models on their ebay store. I've just purchased one and it also comes with a 12 month warranty.

UPDATE: Black now sold out but Pink still available. Also a £2.50 delivery charge has been added, but there is 10% off if you buy 2 or more

My hudl2 is better than my Nexus 7 by leaps and bounds after rooting, and the battery life is great. Maybe just bad luck, or being a little picky.
I guess with any tablet some will go wrong, but the reviews are extremely positive and it has a 12 month warranty if something does go wrong so I'm not going to worry for £79! I forgot to add that Tesco have discontinued the Hudl 2 so these could be the last ones around. Great Xmas gift for the kids I think!
Watchdog slated these last night due to screen cracks whilst charging
this is a Great tablet, my welfare cheque should be enough to buy one.
Haven't had any problems whatsover with my hudl 2. Battery life isn't great, you'll probably get 4 hours out of it, but it seems to have given me an extra half an hour or so with the recent Lollipop update (yes, i know!).

Tablet is actually very quick, and what I love it for is the fact that I can open tens of apps and there's no reloading when I'm clicking on them. Screen isn't very sensitive like your usual smartphones, requires a tiny tiny bit more force compared to phones. Use it mostly for browsing and Sky Go, football looks great on the 1080p screen. Any questions, hit me up.
Perfect thanks. Wanted 2 for Xmas pressies. Got one pink and one black then got 10% off for buying two

​Incorrect.
Watchdog mentioned that 8 people had experienced cracked screens during charging.

No slating took place. A great responsive tablet and if there is a small issue with a handful of devices, hopefully Tesco get it sorted promptly...

You have to wonder how many of those people did something stupid then claimed it cracked itself...i'd say at least 99.9% of them...lol

My brothers one cracked...when he dropped it haha
Yesterday I bought a brand new one in my local store for £99.99, and if you know someone who works there they can get 20% off.

​ye and no replacement if screen does crack, new screen is £79
Ordered 2 - thanks. But after how useless tesco have been with my XB1 deal this week I'll hold my breath. Or not.
Do I need... No... Have I ordered... Yes! Dirt cheap tablet with decent screen and SD card slot will complement my Nexus 5x limitations on storage for films
Get my jobseekers allowance today so i'll be picking this up thanks OP cant wait to play games on it
Have had two Hudls, both of which failed and were refunded within a few weeks by Tesco. No mistreatment here, and I have 2 other tablets which have outlasted theme by years. No wonder Tesco are discontinuing the brand.
Well my kids cracked whilst charging wouldn't touch one again good tablet when working but I would not buy one again for that reason also found that battery life and time to charge was very poor
If anyone does decide to get this, do not update to android 5.0. The tablet becomes a bit 'laggy' after the update.
They are great. I'd be tempted to hold on tho. I think Tesco have discontinued it and usually bring a new tab out around this time.

They've already confirmed they're not doing a hudl 3. This is the last one.

They've been this price for a 'refurb' for quite a time.

The Hudl2 has been out a year, I've read various forums and posts on it, and Watchdog is the first I've heard about that problem. Occasionally Watchdog's stories amount to scaremongering.

I did a factory reset and mines fine, I'd say better than ever. A factory reset shouldn't be a problem to a new user.

I've had mine since last Xmas no complaints 5+ hrs on one charge does me fine- charge going to bed use it the next evening.. Very responsive, very little lag, and great screen. For 80 quid its very decent!
Not worth it anymore as Tesco is pulling support for it.

I tried to leave a negative review about how my Hudl2 tablet screen cracked on it own, they rejected the review.
I have one for about 8 months and love it, use to have amazon fire which was so restricted to use. This one is great. Love it.

very funny but you are aware that this item costs more than a weeks JSA. assuming a person wont spend any money in a week then yes they can buy this, otherwise i would be a bit more careful with your throwaway lines
My screen cracked as well when charging , had to send a pic in and they said user damaged

A single Crack stemming from mini HDMI to USB port , structurally weakest points.

130 quid paper weight , not paying 60 for it to be fixed and hopefully the watchdog piece gains momentum. Can't see it though , there have been reports since may of screens cracking themselves , quite a few

I got one a month or two ago and it's upgraded to Lollipop fine. You need to clear the cache partition after it has updated and the first boot up will be slow (presumably rebuilding cache) but after that it works just fine.

Here's an illustrated tutorial:

N.b. make sure to select "wipe cache partition" in step 3

I did a full reset/wipe to be sure as it didn't have much personal data on at the time anyway.
£2.50 postage makes it £81.50

Be careful cutting the white powder on the HUDL screen. Heard tell that this weakens the screen.

They are not releasing any more hudls in the future for the time being due to cash problems
Have they really got 1000 refurbs to shift or are people buying expecting to actually receive new ones?

Got my Hudl2 last Xmas for just under £50 double-up and it's been great, used heavily and charged once or twice daily. The only issue has been the clock occasionally goes wildly inaccurate if you let the battery get so low it shuts down, but this is easily fixed with a hard reboot.
