Tesco Hudl 2 Review

October 9th, 2014

The Tesco Hudl 2 Review:

So it’s bigger, faster and well better than its 7.5” older brother, but how well does the Tesco Hudl 2 perform against other 8” tablets out there?

Tesco Hudle 2 orange review

Well let’s look at the specs of the all new Tesco Hudl 2

See our range of Tesco Hudl 2 Chargers here

The new larger Tesco Hudl is released on October 9th 2014, costing £129, £10 more expensive than the Tesco Hudl 1 and it is brimming with features.

The first feature you will notice is a larger screen sized at 8.3” vs the 7.5” screen on the Hudl 1 and at 1920×1200 its full HD screen is impressively crisp and clear.

There is a quad-core Intel Atom processer with 2gb of Ram powering the Android KitKat 4.4.2 OS, offering some real pound for operating power value.

The sound has been improved with stereo speakers with Dolby enhanced drivers offering a crisp clear and surprisingly solid bass.

The non to shabby 5mp camera is ok, not that you really use tablets to take many pics with and for skyping etc the front facing 1.2mp camera offers a good experience, much better than anything we have seen in this price bracket.

The internal memory comes with only a 16gb option but the MicroSD slot allows an extra 32gb to be added to this. So it’s fair to say that you can be rest assured you can carry enough content to keep everyone entertained for even long journeys.

The battery life is stated to be 8 hrs of use, and impressively the Hudl 2 really does run for at least this long, very impressive considering the screen brightness.

Ok now on the Hudl 2’s design

Surprisingly for a supermarket tablet, Tesco has not just piggybacked the likes of Huawei like EE did with the EE Eagle, but they totally made the Hudl 2 to look great. Having used the creative minds f three top design agencies Ustwo ,The Chase and ChauhanStudio who worked together to come up with what is a very likeable look.

Being a family orientated tablet the hudl comes in an array of bright and funkily named colours, these being, Bubblegum Pink, Jazzy Blue, , Slate Black (one for the no nonsense fella), Rocket Red, Tropical Turquoise, Dreamy White Zesty Orange and Perky Purple

Value for money:

There is no denying that the Hudl 2 is a bargain, at £129 you really cant buy better at the moment and those lucky enough to have enough Tesco clubcard points can get the Hudl 2 for only £65 which is outstanding tablet value for money.
