You'll get some surprisingly accomplished components for your money, but the Tesco Hudl fails to really wow in any department apart from the price. If your budget can't stretch any further you won't be disappointed.
This is our favourite member of the Tab 3 family, with thin sleek lines punctuated by an attractive aluminium rim. We love the fact it can be held in one hand yet still packs an extra inch of screen real estate.
