Lenovo A8-50 or Tesco Hudl2 Tablet Computer?
While I was reading the letters page in Web User magazine (issue 360 : page 73) I came across a letter singing the praises of the Lenovo A8-50 8″ tablet computer in which the writer claimed it was a superior tablet than the Tesco Hudl2 for the same price.
Given the great reviews the Hudl2 has received this seemed a bold claim so I decided to take a closer look at the Lenovo A8-50. It turns out that Tesco Direct stock the A8-50, as do John Lewis and Very among others, it is a widely available tablet computer.
So how do the two tablets measure up against each other? The table below tries to answer that by comparing the major components and features.
|Lenovo A8-50||Tesco Hudl2|
|Screen resolution||1280 x 800 pixels||1920 x 1200 pixels|
|Screen aspect ratio||16:10||16:10|
|Processor||MediaTek MTK 8121 1.3GHz quad-core||Intel Atom Z3735D 1.83GHz quad-core|
|Android version||Android 4.2 Jelly Bean||Android 4.4 KitKat|
|Front facing camera||2 MP||1.2 MP|
|Rear facing camera||5 MP||5 MP|
|Dimensions||21.7 x 13.6 x 0.9 Cm||22.4 x 12.8 x 0.9 Cm|
Looking at those features while the Lenovo A8-50 looks a very capable Android tablet and I would be very happy to own one the Tesco Hudl2 seems to win on almost every feature. There is a version of the Lenovo A8-50 with built in 3G that will take a SIM card for internet connectivity when you have a mobile signal but no WiFi, this variation could be ideal for those who want an Android tablet computer for use while they are out and about.
