Tesco Hudl 2 Tablet Review...

Wednesday, 31 December 2014
A little while back I was contacted to see if I wanted to give a Hudl2 a home and write about my thoughts on owning one. It won't come as any surprise to readers that I've always wanted an iPad but never had the funds to fulfil that desire. Last year I bought a Samsung tablet to see if that would suffice, but very quickly it turned slow - despite numerous resets and it's been sat in a draw for months. A work colleague has a Hudl for her son and when talking about the opportunity in the office one day she convinced me to say yes as she spoke very highly of the Hudl2.
At 8.3" the Hudl2 is a fair amount smaller than my Samsung tablet which made me wonder would I think it worth it. I have an iphone 5 so using that for internet browsing, social media and shopping is easy enough. However, I actually have ended up preferring the slightly smaller screen of the Hudl2, which makes it that perfect hand held size, but large enough for the Hudl2 to be worth using over my phone. I like that I can hold the Hudl2 comfortably in one hand, especially as it's not too heavy but then not too light that it feels fragile. It doesn't hurt that much when you drop it on your face half asleep either!

The display on this tablet is impressive, everything is crisp and clear - unlike my Samsung. This makes watching youtube, bbc iplayer and all those types of things a really great experience. Coupled with the cover that turns into a stand, the Hudl is the perfect "mini tv". The sound is really clear too, this is down to the Dolby Stereo Sound functionality. You really don't have to turn the volume up to the highest setting either, it's surprising just how loud this little device goes to. 

The first apps I installed were the usual social media ones, blogger to edit posts on the go and my secret favourite - candy crush. As mentioned in my video, reading on the tablet is so clear that browsing the internet and reading bloglovin is just a joy. The Tesco app, as expected, is already included on the tablet but it's not "in your face", they have done it right by allowing you to hide it. 
This is a great tablet and I am pretty much glued to it since getting it. If you've been given some Christmas money and are in the market for a new tablet I would 100% recommend, it's only £129! 

Hope you have had a lovely Christmas.

  1. Oh no, I've just got a Samsung tablet, hope mine doesn't go the same way as yours! I've never heard of the Hudl before, might recommend it to my mum as she's looking for a tablet.

  2. Sounds great, I have an iPad mini and it would be great to see how they compare x
