Engadget Review

Tesco's Hudl tablet can't compete on specs with Amazon's Kindle Fire line, but for customers able to buy this device for £60, all of its relatively minor failings get a free pass.

As for the speed and performance, there isn't really much to write home about: opening up applications was quick, but not lightning fast, and we suspect that the moment you begin to do anything demanding you'll start to struggle, based on our quick play.

The device is slightly chubby and plasticky, as you'd expect, but it's not some rebadge ... the tablet feels sturdy, which seems to be a theme of certain optional Hudl-branded accessories, too.

The Tesco Hudl is a capable, if uninspiring, tablet and we're pretty certain it will sell by the bucket load purely due to its price tag, family focus and the prominent position it will be given in the firm's stores and online presence.

The Tesco Hudl is a surprisingly strong offering, with the HD display and minimalist £119 price point a pleasing combination. It's not without some issues, but nothing it's bargain basement price won't forgive.

The Hudl wasn’t built to be the fastest, or the best-looking instead it has been designed as the everyday living room tablet that will survive knocks, drops and occasional spills and from our experience we’d say the Hudl certainly ticks those boxes.

With its cheap price and plastic body, Tesco's Hudl is a decent tablet for families with small children. Its low resolution camera, unimpressive screen and sluggish interface, however, make it a poor choice for anyone wanting to experience everything Android has to offer.

We've got a lot of love for the Hudl. Considering this is a supermarket-produced product that doesn't involve fruit and veg it does a damn fine job of pretty much anything you'd care to throw at it ... The tech savvy will turn their noses up at it like a can of value beans though.

The Tesco Hudl tablet is no Nexus 7 2, but for the price and the specs on offer it's still a good value for money Android tablet that would make a good gift this Christmas.

Tesco's budget tablet is fairly basic, but there's no denying its value.
