Has this ever been full rrp? I bought mine about 2 months ago for £79.99 and every time I've looked the price has stayed the same.

god buy, decisions, decisions, good crimbo presents, twisted my credit card again, cheers ukturk as always

stuck between this and the £99 a10-30 or the £99 asus from currys. Since i can't a shield k1 i need one of these, but which one??? Decisions!

Should I swap for the hudl 2 I got from tesco direct last week for £69? decisions decisions

I put this up a few months ago and post is still active. Glad someone has put up again. I'm voting hot as we are pleased with it. Really good tablet..

Thanks OP, been looking for a new tablet for the wife for a while.
She's normally satisfied with a 7 incher, but I think that an 8 incher will put an extra glint in her eye.

For the £, I'd say its hot as its got 2GB Ram & Android 6. Just annoying they don't sell a FHD version for £100.

That's £10 more

ffs. will amazon take their fire tablet back? nothing but tablet deals since I ordered it

The 7 inch in this deal is only 8GB, so the Amazon deal is only £10 more for a 16GB one.
Still only 1GB RAM though.
I decided to go for the 2GB version.

Yes, but is it any better for the extra tenner? The processor frequency is higher....not necessarily faster, I know, that's why I asked.

really good tablet, got it few months back from Argos. it has Android Marshmallow, which means you can use your memory card as an extension of your storage. the night mode is good for reading. also has kids mode.

Yes, just ask for a return and take it to a click and collect shop .. if it's faulty, you do not have to accept a replacement and are entitled to a refund, otherwise, I think, they charge a restocking fee.

It has 8gb more, you will be better off buying this and a 32gb SD card if you need more space.

Is there somewhere like passmark to compare tablet cpus?

Edit: Just realised, the Amazon one states same CPU name but says 1.5 Ghz...are they misrepresenting it, or is it really faster than the Argos one?

7", 8", do you think she will appreciate the extra inch?

1Ghz? Welcome to 2011 people

how comes the 8inch is 1ghz? with 2gb ram.
and the 7inch is 1.3ghz but with 1gb ram?

can anyone confirm these. as sometimes the ram might be stated wrong.

Does the 8inch model have a (micro)HDMI port?
It not is there any other 7 or 8" Android 6 tablet out there with 2GB RAM and HDMI port?
Also its available for £5 less on Argos refurbished site. Ok its only a fiver and not worth the saving if buying as a gift but if its for yourself these are generally as good as new just open box, so by the time you have opened the box you may as well save the fiver....

Thank you! And its £10 less. Apart from the lower battery life I think the bush tablet looks fair better spec wise, FHD display. Might go for that then

Definitely not as it goes flat earlier because battery juice run out faster with that extra inch to light up.

How do people think this compares to the Fire 8 inch? I've been waiting for that to drop but this might be a better option.

Are you kidding? Hudl 2 is best tablet of recent times (apart from battery life) it's has been out of stock for 18 months how did you get it?

​you are welcome

The 8 inch feels like a 1gb ram device, was way too sluggish so had to return it. Feels much slower than hudl2. Build quality and sound was nice but pixel density and sluggishness put me off.

How does this compare to the Kindle 7 specs and usabilitywise?

​Hudl 2 was cursed with faults so Tesco pulled it from sale... That's what they said to me when I returned my sons.

​i bought the hudl for £69 a week ago , I don't think it is that good because there are always lags everywhere even though I'm still on 4.4.2 . I am probably going to return it today

I knew I'd seen it somewhere (http://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/736158/Tesco-Hudl2-Tablet-Black-Friday-2016-UK).

They must have had some old stock that they've just let go. I just recently got my boy a used Hudl 2 because I still think they're the best non-limited children's tablets for small children (especially when running Lollipop).
