    I got one for my son as a replacement for an old ipad that got broke. He loves it. It's a great spec for the price.

    Picked mine up the other day. Must say for the price I am very impressed. Even works with my 64GB memory card.

    My grandad's hudl is still stuck on 4.2.2. Wish they had cyanogen mod on it.

    From a teardown, its got a 5710mh battery inside.

    I would say its adequate, nothing amazing. Does seem to go down quite quickly when doing something intensive.

    For the price though, cant grumble.

    Its been receiving OTA updates from Tesco, so hopefully they will be able to tweak something and improve the battery life a bit more. I think a lot of people were surprised to find out it had a 5710mh battery inside.

    Apart from the battery life, its a great device. Ive stuck a 64GB memory card inside mine and works fine.

    the only thing that's making me not buying this tablet is the lack of updates. My grandads original hudl is still on 4.2.2. There isn't cyanogen mod for it either.

    hudl2 - I think support for the original hudl is likely to be dropped.
