tesco.com/dir…003 - in Tesco is Linx 7 not Linx 8 as stated in the deal

Easily as good as the iPhone and iPad.

Idiotic comment aside, I agree that the phone is rubbish, but the OS has nothing to do with that.

I would only buy the 530 at £30 or less. The screen is just the worst I have seen on any smartphone in the past 4 years.

Great tablet though.

I'm not sure that this is much of a deal to be honest, the normal tablet and phone cost to buy separately is the same.

Not imo. Currently using Lynx 8 and 630 and they run like a dream (well, the 630 does now after a repair, but still...)

I have the nokia lumia 520 and have just recently bought the new microsoft lumia 535 and can honestly say that i have never had any problems with either,they just function as they should and in my mind are quite satisfactory in performance,i personally cannot see the sense in shelling out hundreds of pounds on a device which is manufactured by slave labour to bring outlandish profits to the owners of those company's which have scant regard as to where the raw materials are sourced and to the damage done to the environment in the process.I can see responses citing microsoft to be just as guilty and maybe others could verify this.I find it quite sad myself that others have to suffer to satisfy our demands for these products,and yes i stand just as guilty as the next person in owning these devices but wonder if maybe oneday the people at the top of these company's will consider those at the very bottom.

Tesco deal is also a Tesco Mobile handset, not sim free like GAME

extra short review on lumia 530: fantastic value for money, unbelievable battery life, sturdy as no other mobile phone on the market ( my mate run it over with his taxi and it's still working after changing the back cover, try to run over any other device with a car and tell me the results later ;), bad points: no enough ram memory, therefore no good for gaming, and mediocre camera, as for the tablet I don't know anything about it, I own a lumia 630, would not consider any android device as it cam be quite tricky on settings, would not consider an iPhone as I think it's way overpriced (although I love my iPad) if I needed another mobile it would be another 630 or the lumia 735 as it's got a really good camera and decent ram memory and it's still really good value, hope it helped

Lol better processor in these than in anything made by apple, no brainer

So it is and for the price difference,it makes the Tesco deal Luke warm. BTW can anybody say if the Tesco Connect 7 Tablet and the Linx 7 are in fact one and the same?...just curious (_;)

You can get £46 cash (or £56 voucher) at CEX for the phone if you don't want it. So tablet would cost you £83.99 which based on reviews, makes it a great deal in my opinion, especially when you throw in the 365 subscription.

Good review on Eurogamer of the tablet - eurogamer.net/art…nce

From experience of the phone and OS - disagree. No idea re. tablet

I have the Linx 7 and so far I've been very impressed with it - I'm not trying to use it as a desktop replacement, just a tablet which happens to run Windows 8.1 as a tablet device. Its responsive to touch and switching apps, the display is not perfect, but is fine for me. (I also have IOS and Android devices so can compare handling). The only thing I would comment on the Linx 7 is, always turn it off if you intend to leave it around for a while as the standby does drain the battery and turning it off is not an issue as it starts up again very quickly, under 20 seconds I think.

Stupidest comment of the day award goes to...This guy.

I have no experience of the phone however have owned a 520, 920 and now a 1020.

They are great devices and the OS is very stable and usable. I do believe the screen on this phone though is lacking a bit, however it's price must be considered.

I also own this tablet and it is great. Nice screen, responsive, and well put together giving a full windows experience on a tablet at a great price. Has great potential as a netbook replacement amongst travellers who would use a netbook for storage of photos, videos, basic editing etc as well as being a full a full pc so will happily run route planning software for TomTom and Garmin.

Get an OTG cable to attach external HDDs and stick in a 65GB card and you have a well sorted machine.

Maybe you are a shill, who knows, but I have the Nokia 920 and Nokia 2520 tablet and perfectly happy with both, some will whine about the tablet using Windows RT but I have other computers to install programs on, and what tablets can .exe be installed on anyway?

Very true. Very easy to forget the damage done to people and the environment with these things. It's hypocritical as I spent so much on an iPhone but I definitely agree with what you're saying and it'll be the last time I spend that much on a phone.

Agree with all your points though I don't believe these can power proper hard drives, flash memory sticks are fine but you'll damage a portable hdd trying to power it from these tabs.

Not a great deal. The linx 8 has been £49 at staples (I have one, its brilliant) and the 530 (I have the 520, its better imo) has been £29 on upgrade at carphonewarehouse, so a bit fat profit in this deal for Game.

I picked up the Linx 8 on black friday and its a great device with an excellent screen and build quality. It even gives my Surface Pro a run for its money! It runs just as effectively despite the 1GB ram. It's light years of any iPad and probably the best value windows 8.1 tablet on the market. The cons are it comes with Windows Bing but its a small inconvenience given the rest of the package and price and 1GB ram might limit it somewhat. Still cant really complain. Hot from me!

You said it,OH yes...leave it on standby,and come the time yer wanna use it,it's as GOOD as dead,and since it will fire up in seconds,best to turn it off when not required,the little beauty. I was able to trade in my Dual core Yarvik (1st Android Tab,Christ it was a pain) for £30,against this 7" from Staples @ £69 -£5 Loyalty card (voucher code offered at point of purchase,after/for application of card) so end price will be (when trade-in credit hits my account) £34.

It's MENTAL the deals that are around for this,in effect "Hand held" Computer,and I believe I got a GREAT deal,and am delighted,yet would you believe you COULD have got the Linx 10" fer UNDER £30 not so long ago?. CHRIST I hope it's not gonna SELF DESTRUCT 1 day out of warranty oO yer know...like the Sekonda Watch?...Guaranteed fer life,when the main spring goes,it SLASHES YER WRIST

It should be pointed out that Microsoft does not manufacture this tablet, as the title would suggest.

I sold my nook HD to get the linx 8" tablet. Glad I did but the app store is limited and quite pricey. It's a different product so hard to compare like to like and the battery drain in standby mode gets my nerves but over all very happy.

Thanks for this. You may have saved me a hdd. I hadn't tried it but thought I read you could someone, now I won't even bother and will stick to use sticks. Cheers.

It's fine mate, I tried it with one of my less important hard drives and it would spin up then make that sound they make if you just unplug them while in use, not nice haha. But never appeared in Windows Explorer anyways.

I am using Linx 10.1 inch tablet with windows 8.1 bing version, comes with keyboard case and microsoft 365 office personal (one pc + one mobile device license) for 1 year. so far in my opinion better than my ipad 4, as some staff impossible to do on ipad, examle: connect to hotel wifi is pain in the ass on ipad and the speed of Linx tablet is faster than ipad.

If anyone is interests in this deal..
It's in stock in GAME Eastbourne..

Also comes with 365 days of office..
As explained by the lovely staff in there.

VERY true.Let it "sleep",and when you come to use it,even after just a day,chances are,all it'll wanna do is shut down,as it'll be out of juice. That said,it's a LITTLE BEAUTY erm... in MY humble opinion,anyway.:p

silly question. Is the phone sim free or locked to Orange?
