Tesco Hudl vs Kindle Fire HD vs Asus MemoPad HD
We've just taken the wraps off our Tesco Hudl review and it's looking like it'll be going toe to toe with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and Asus MemoPad HD 7 for the best value Android tablet. Luckily for you, we've reviewed each of these slates and now we're putting them head to head.
Tesco Hudl reviewBest for / Clubcard holders
The Hudl is a testament to how far we’ve come in the world of consumer technology, the fact that a person can walk into a store and pay less than £100 (using a Clubcard) to buy a 7-inch HD tablet is something that should be applauded.
Of course simply because you can do something doesn’t mean it’s going to be any good and whilst on the whole the Hudl is a perfectly serviceable tablet the screen is a considerable let down, enough that we’d almost suggest spending either the same money on the older Amazon Kindle Fire HD or by spending the extra £80 on the lighter, faster Nexus 7.
That said it is important to remember that the Hudl wasn’t built to be the fastest, or the best-looking instead it has been designed as the everyday living room tablet that will survive knocks, drops and occasional spills and from our experience we’d say the Hudl certainly ticks those boxes.

Asus Memo Pad HD 7 reviewBest for / Lovers of colour
Asus' Memo Pad HD 7 definitely lacks that special something, both in design and overall feature set, when compared to the company's collaboration with Google, the new Nexus 7 2. However with such a low price tag, a decent screen and plenty of power for the average user, the Memo Pad HD 7 is an Android tablet that can easily be recommended.

Amazon knows its market. This is not a tablet for serious gadget obsessives. This is a tablet for serious gadget obsessive's mothers, fathers and kids. It's tablets made even more simple. For people who want a tablet purely as a way to watch films, read ebooks, play music and browse the web this puts everything within one tap of the touchscreen.
How we tested
Finding a great tablet for under £150 used to be tricky, if not impossible. Now however, things are a little bit different. Highly specced slates, featuring pin sharp displays and beefy specs are now becoming widely available under that magic price point. Amazon's Kindle Fire HD, Tesco's Hudl and the MemoPad HD 7 from Asus are three such tablets, but which one is for you? Check out the above reviews and then let us know on Facebook, Twitter and in comment section below your thoughts.
