The sold out Tesco Hudl 2 was a deservedly popular tablet, and had more than its share of good points, but it was by no means the best bargain priced tablet we’ve tested.

Our testing has found three similarly priced tablets that not only match the Hudl 2 every step of the way, but actually better it in some areas. Who says you can’t get value for money outside of Tesco? Keep reading to discover our picks for the perfect Hudl 2 alternative.

A great choice for those on a budget, this 8-inch tablet isn't a power house, but does more than enough for the average user. The battery stamina means you can use it for long stretches away from the plug socket.

The quad-core processor on this budget tablet offers plenty of power for most tasks, and although battery life isn't the best, it's a good choice for anyone who will mainly be using their tablet at home.

Not the best tablet we've ever tested, but so competitively priced that it's well worth considering as a Hudl replacement for those looking for an everday tablet.
