Found 1st Dec 2014Made hot 1st Dec 2014
The Galaxy Note 8 is currently £149 at Tesco Direct however if you add another Technology, Gaming or Home Electrical item for a pound or more (Cheapest I could find was a £2 Hudl case) you can use the Cyber Monday code for £20 off

Voucher code is TDX-KPMG

This is a great Tablet for the price especially if you are into drawing or art.

Would this be best tablet at this price range? Was looking at buying Hudl 2 possibly!? Or is there a better choice?

I look and look but in the end everything points towards the Hudl 2 (i need something to replace my very old iPad one).

Will have a look today to see if its being reduced and will get one if so.

EDIT Ok so just bought a Hudl 2 and Smash Bros on Wii U to get the £20 off also had a tenners worth of club points so happy shopper paid £139 for both.

This tablet has aged very well. Still a lot better than many more recent tablets.

We were waiting for the Tab 4 to come down but this looks like a better buy for pretty much the same money, although have read it can 'feel' a little plasticky, do you think it does in hand?

it does feel plasticky, though that doesnt really bother me. i personally prefer that feel to the faux leather thats on the back of the more expensive note pro and note 10.1

Can't get this code to work when I add the Moto g 2014 and another tamale tech item to go above £150. Any ideas?

Agree it's all about personal choice, not too bothered myself but it's not for me and I suppose nothing a half decent case can't sort out, thanks for reply.

This tablet at sub £100 would be a good deal .. I've owned it and passed it on .. go Google some specs you will find 3 or 4 better tablets for less .. I'm not going to force you to purchase one

This tablet was launched roughly april 2013 things have come on a fair bit since then .. for a child or a 1st tablet yes it'll do the job.

Your right things have come on but with cheaper tablets they have just about caught up with this. touch wiz isn't great but I would buy this at this price if I hadn't just bought a note 2012. I've had my note 2012 since release and it still as good as the day I bought it but wanted and upgrade. Samsung service is good, they update a lot of older tabs, pretty much every android app will run on this and they last long, what more does one want?

*i just bought note 2014. typo

Yeh its decent dont get me wrong
Im a samsung fan
Samsung 8.9 tab 1
Note 8.0
Tab s 10.5 currently.. different class though

I would get the pro reason being the superior screen over this but there are cheaper better tablets available.

How about actually saying what is better instead of the history lesson and define 'better'....it's not always about 'ohhh look it's got a quad core dumbflicker' it must be better, just because tech is last year it doesn't mean it's obsolete, just because you might believe the hype or are a latest and greatest nerd who ignores everything except what you think is real....but by your reckoning our 8 Core Mac Pro must be just for kids or the scrap heap as it's 6yrs old and a dinosaur....

Im not a fan of macs so I don't use them .. I have used the note 8.0 and its a okay tablet..

I have used this tablet and it's great. still using it to watch youtube videos. pen is a great to use when needed but don't use it much. software is stable. the resolution is a little low for today's standards but still sharp enough for reading. sd card feature is great. it's a great deal. good for children.

you'd be infinity better off getting the iPad mini 2 for a bit more, unless you despise iOS

The key point here is the digitiser touch screen and pen - infinitely better for drawing/art/making notes/school work. It's the reason I got a somewhat **** Samsung convertible over a nicer Acer. So although I am a big believer in the digitiser and stylus I'm not sure how much use it is on an 8 inch form factor device.

A step down for more money, seriously?

A step down for more money, seriously?


in what way is it a step down?

superior screen in terms of colour reproduction and glare
significantly thinner
significantly lighter
smaller bezels
significantly less lag
better gaming performance
aluminium unibody as opposed to plastic
better camera

the only things 'for' the note are the S pen, and for some people android (although touchwiz is horrendous)

have to agree with djw1, touchwiz being horrendous is a matter of opinion, I get on just fine with it, the multitasking with 2 apps on one screen is a handy feature, the s pen has its uses but I don't depend on it, and the ipad is far more expensive for very little extra in the way of important specs

really? you believe these make it a better tablet, i would say thats more personal taste, though i would check those thinner / lighter specs out as the are not significant.. is the note not lighter

sure its got a higher res display, but side by side they both outshine each other in various scenarios... again personal taste

cant say the note lags, sure it has the occasional software hiccup, but that is not exclusive to samsung or android. my daughters ipad has issues now and again

not a gamer, but weve had no issues with the games

touchwiz is horrendous??? i wouldn't say so. someone in real life said this to me the other day, i asked why its crap. their response was "erm, because it is" they couldn't give a reason why it was crap.. they most likely read it somewhere and just repeat it.


the spen is great for doodling, photo editing, note taking and makes things so much easier
multitasking is great
it runs android, the functionality that offers me is invaluable.
microsd card, on board storage vanishes very fast
bluetooth file transfer isn't crippled
wifi direct is great, when use with a samsung camera or transferring data

again all personal taste, but i wouldnt spend £100+ more for a less feature rich device

is this a phone or a tablet??

ppoze

the vast majority of people would choose the iPad over this, even if they didn't know the brand.

the note feels like a toy in the hand, not a £130 device. The aluminium iPad actually makes it feel like a quality product, like it's worth a lot of money.

a slimmer body makes a huge difference to the in hand feel, again making the iPad a superior product instead of a toy like the note.

the only way in which the note screen is more appealing is the higher saturation- this is by no means is a good thing as the screen does not look realistic at all. In all other respects, the iPad screen is superior such as glare (the iPad has the antiglare coating) so you can actually use the iPad outside, brightness (400 vs 380), pixel density on the note 8 is SHOCKINGLY bad at 189ppi compared to 326ppi- you can actually distinguish each pixel on the note, digitaliser- screen is right up against the glass on the iPad as opposed to there being an airgap in the note.

compared to the iPad, the note has a huge huge amount of lag, and it's really noticeable especially on touchwiz

your general lack of knowledge about tech shows though in particular here. the iPad camera is superior- same module as on the iPhone, as is the image processing software which reviewers unanimously agree is the best camera for a tablet/phone on the market. Yes, I agree most people don't use the rear camera, but it is what it is, and it's nice to have a rear facing camera for group Skype conversations and the like

touchwiz is an extremely laggy overlay in general. aside from this, the icons and format is very childish, and for the majority of us, the skin is complicated and difficult to use. Yes, there are some excellent features such as the multitasking, but equally, some features are very gimmicky such as the smart stay and smart scroll

the iPad is superior in almost every regard apart from some software features, and most people will agree it is worth paying the extra £70 for a more rounded, more premium device.

hukdealz- I thought you was giving the hotdeal community your opinion until i read the bit when you wrote "the majority of us"

When will people realise that you like what you like and i like what i like.

I do not like ipads. i have owed them. they good devices but Andriod is better and also prefer samsung they are better than ipads (my opinion)

nothing you write will ever change my mind as i dont listen to people i actually use the devices and i pick what i like.

Just enjoy the product you own and not worry so much what other people enjoy.

and while we are doing that just think of how fortunate we are to be able to afford luxury's such as tablets instead of arguing about what device is best.

oh hypocrisy at it's finest!

'When will people realise that you like what you like and i like what i like.'

'...but Andriod is better'

At the end of the day I agree people will have their own opinions but it's simply a fact that the majority of people on HUKD will prefer iOS (personally, in all honesty I prefer android but no other tablet comes closer in terms of in hand feel and user experience than the iPad)

I was giving my opinion- people who aren't so in with technology will appreciate different viewpoints, which is why I recommended spending £70 for what the majority of people will find a significantly better device.
