  • Tesco Hudl2 - read the review for our full verdict

Back in 2013 the original Hudl took the tablet market by surprise. It offered a decent screen, good battery life and it was fast enough for most daily tasks. This winning combination marked a real step up from other tablets on the market at a similar price point. It flew off the shelves and quickly became a favourite with families and we think the Hudl2 is set to do the same.

Is the Hudl2 child friendly? 

The original Hudl was a popular tablet with families. Tesco has sought to ensure that the new version is even more family-friendly by including a parental controls app. 

The app allows parents to create up to seven user profiles and control what each user can see and how long they can see it for. 

How does the new Hudl compare to the original? 

The new Hudl is better looking than its predecessor, with a slimmer bezel which gives a more premium finish. The screen has grown - it now measures 8.3-inches across the diagonal, up from 7-inches on the original and it's more detailed. 

We've also run comparative battery tests on the new and old models - read our full Tesco Hudl2 review to find out which Hudl lasts for the longest. 

The first generation Hudl is now available for just £79 (while stocks last). If you're tempted by this cheap tablet - read our review of the original Tesco Hudl before parting with your cash.
