Tesco Hudl
A great all-rounder with a spritely processor and 242ppi HD screen, but it has a smeary feel and lags behind the Nexus and Asus for colour and motion. The 3MP cam isn’t much good either. It’s a decent tab with Clubcard-boosting skills, but not quite the best for the price.

Google Nexus 7
The Nexus makes everything look sharper and more vibrant than it does on lowlier slates. It’s also lovely to hold, with a new, grippy back and even the camera takes decent shots. Our only complaint is that the power button can be a bit hard to find. Seriously, that’s it.

Asus MeMO Pad HD 7
Creaky plastic build aside, the MeMO plays a clever hand. The screen has excellent viewing angles and colours, while the 5MP cam is surprisingly capable. Performance isn’t perfect, but we can forgive a few stutters. Feels good, lasts for ages and only costs a handful of beans.

The Wikipad is a pocketable 7in tabletwithabeastofacontroller to slot it into. Compatible games get an injection of fun, but its screen is lacklustre alongside theNexus,anditmotorsthrough its battery. It’s immersive Android fun, but £250 is too much for what it does.
