Correct price when added to basket

most argos shops have packs of chriristmas cards for about 29p

Plastic bag?

You can add this very useful Pumpkin Treat Bucket for £0.49!

Thanks. I've been waiting for this to come down in price. Ordered and heat added.

Is this any good?

Also, can anyone tell me what the best Android tablet is at the moment. I'm loathed to buy an iPad but it seems that Android tablets don't seem to have the power that phones have these days. I'd ideally like a tablet version of the Samsung S6!

I want to upgrade from my Nook HD+ but I can't seem to find any tablet with as good a screen resolution (HD+ is 1920x1280) without having to spend big bucks :(. Any recommendations?

Full HD version, free case, 2 year guarantee, £130. My son has one for YouTube and simple gaming, fantastic screen but not the fastest machine in the world.

However... Lenovo have a habit of not pushing out Android updates for their tablets. This highest you'll officially get with this is Lollipop. They usually ship with KitKat.

There is not much choice really, the Google Pixel C is probably the best performance wise, but I think it's very pricy.

Personally one of the best is still the Z3 Compact Tablet, some three years after its release. Z4 is nice, big etc, but still very pricy.

Is the sound any good on these? Looking for a cheap ish tablet to put in a dock on the wall in our kitchen, just to run Kodi and Amazon Prime.

Interesting but launch price reckoned to be starting at £144 here.

I've had one of these for a while now . Been happy with it so far and does everything I've wanted it for.

Just to warn you, from my experience certain appliances such as the microwave can interfere with the wifi signal.

If you plan on using both simultaneously quite regularly you may want to opt for a solution which involves ethernet/homeplugs.

There are a few around, but they are mostly FullHD. The Lenovo Tab 2 A10 is not bad, this one here is quite decent, and the Sony Z2 or Z4 are very good (but discontinued). The Samsung Galaxy Tab S is also quite nice, and more affordable.

I had been waiting for the Argos one to drop down to 99 again for my son's birthday on sat. Ended up getting the full HD from Amazon for 130 (I know JL 2 yr warranty). He will be 9 and don't think he will really appreciate the HD so including the £10 voucher, costing me another £40...

I would avoid lenovo, from my experience with the lenovo tab 2 a10.
Poor build quality (audio, wifi drop out etc), and poor software support (they pretty much stopped giving updates to a capable device so that people would buy newer models).
not saying it will be the case with the lenovo tab 3, but since it has a lower resolution compared to its predecessor, not expecting much to change.
I prob would pay a bit more to get a sony or apple tablet. They're expensive, but they continue to give software support for a long time, so that your tablet doesn't become useless immediately

Android tablets don't magically become unusable just because they are running an older OS version (something you could say about iPads BTW!).

Thanks but I don't know what it was on at the time (currently on 6), but I find hard coding the channel causes more problems overall than it solves, especially when I have homeplugs as an option.

Of course this may still be useful for Smeeble.

The main issue I'd say is security updates and app support.

Can anyone confirm that this plays football manager touch?

Also does this do screen mirroring?

I've got a Samsung tab e and that can't do screen mirroring which is bloody annoying.

if you want tablet version of Samsung S6 or something with similar build quality you must pay iPad level price..look for Samsung Tab S2..there is 8 and 10 inch model and the 10 Inch can be bought for round £300ish brand new on eBay (£400ish retail price)..but you get top notch OLED screen just like Galaxy phones that no other tablet can even touch..but again that price is in iPad territory,so unless you really want android tablet and SD card slot,you might be better off buying an iPad..holds vale much longer and better investment without a doubt.but Tab S2 is very nice and the only android tablet I will ever consider, just because of that amazing OLED screen alone.

this Lenovo Tab 3 is not even close to the quality and performance of something like Samsung Tab S2 ..the screen is low resolution and budget LCD, it's much slower and weaker in general and the build quality is so budget and rough ugly plastic..no comparison whatsoever to either Samsung Tab S2 or any Apple iPad, but then this is just £100 so to each their own..

Yes, they do. It is called software aging, and it is certainly not magic. iPads may be worse in this respect, because they still get new features, but Androids have essentially the same problem because of updated apps.

I have a Z3 compact tablet, great tablet but 16GB just isn't enough storage for apps. I had it rooted before Marshmallow came out and was able to save apps to the memory card, but since Marshmallow i've been unable to root and only got 11GB free.

I find a good factory nuking can do wonders with an older device. It really depends on what you use to how badly things go. I have a galaxy mini on gingerbread that's still absolutely fine for the basics (bar its obvious hardware limitations) whereas my Hudl 2 on lolipop chokes horribly at times. All depends on Lenovos implementation I feel.

Yes, it can help, because getting full is of course one of the main problems. But it depends a lot on the apps, too. I find Facebook getting slugging on anything but very recent hardware, and the same applies to many games. Other apps still happily run on an old device, sometimes in an older version.

Google Play Services update your apps so the experience is practically the same whether you're on Lollypop, Marshmallow or Nougat.

99.9% of people couldn't tell the difference between any of the latest android versions especially if there is a skin running on top.

Non issue

Loathed to go back to Lenovo....my Yoga 2 Tab just decided to stop yesterday.

But still a good deal .... you know if ....
