Argos MyTablet vs Tesco Hudl: Review and Comparison of Budget Tablets


Take a look at review of Argos MyTablet vs Tesco Hudl comparison and find out which Android tablet is better in terms of display, design, processor, memory, etc.

Not a single device like mobile or tablet is free from intense competition nowadays. Every technical product company wants to maintain their position in market, that’s why they update their devices time to time and introduces new devices with latest technology to beat the other one. Tesco Hudl packs all your entertainment into one sleek, easy to use 7-inch Android tablet and available at the affordable price of £119. It is expected to beat high priced tablets – Google’s Nexus and Apple’s iPad mini, as well as similarly priced competitors. Like other devices, Tesco HudI can not keep away itself from competition because recently Argos has announced its MyTablet device with £20 less price to beat this highly demanded tablet. Argos MyTablet hits the shop at £99.99. However, is the £20 difference worth a saving in terms of specs? A proper comparison of Argos MyTablet and Tesco Hudl will help you know which one is better in terms of features and specifications. Let’s take a look at the comparison of budget Android tablets to clear the confusion.

Comparision of Argos MyTablet and Tesco Hudl


We are starting comparison with display feature. Both handsets possess similar 7-inch LCD screen, then why Tesco HudI is winner?

It is because Tesco Hudl comes with a better 1440 X 900 resolution and a pixel density of 242ppi than Argos MyTablet, which offers only 1024 x 600 display resolution with 169ppi. It means the display of Tesco Hudl will be more detailed, sharper and clearer than the MyTablet. The Tesco tablet screen is not 100% perfect, but the difference is expected to be rather noticeable.


With 7-inch Hudl HD Display, you can surf web and read books easily, stream movies and music on blinkbox and shoot photos and video.

  • Argos MyTablet – 7-inch 1024 x 600 LCD
  • Tesco Hudl tablet – 7-inch 1440 x 900 HD

Winner: HudI


Mytablet is wrapped with choices of two metal cases – silver or pink. Metal back gives it iPhone 5S look. It also arrives with stylus. In terms of weight, it is 76g slighter than Hudl. As well, it is 0.9mm slimmer than Hudl.

On the other hand, Tesco Hudl comes with polycarbonate casing with four color choices – black, purple, red and blue. A soft touch casing and smooth, curved edges combine to form a sleek, easy-to-hold design.

  • Argos MyTablet – Available in pink and silver metal cases
  • Tesco Hudl – Available in red, black, purple and blue

Winner: Argos MyTablet


Neither Argos MyTablet nor Tesco Hudl will be ideal for quality photos, because both come with very low mega pixel. But on paper Hudl is stronger than MyTablet because it is equipped with 3 megapixel rear facing camera and 2 megapixel front-facing camera. However, Argos MyTablet comes with 2 megapixel rear camera and 0.3 megapixel front camera. If you are planning to purchase a tablet for taking snaps and video calling, then check out more other tablets that comes with high mega-pixel camera.

  • Argos MyTablet – 2-megapixel main camera, 0.3-megapixel front camera
  • Tesco Hudl tablet – 3-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel front camera

Winner: Hudl

Processor, OS, & Connectivity:

Many people get confused between dual-core and quad-core processors. MyTablet is powered by dual-core 1.6GHz processor, while Hudl is powered by quad-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM, which is better to perform everyday tasks like web browsing and checking emails. There is no detail of MyTablet’s RAM, but we imagine that it will be the same 1GB RAM.

Both devices come with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and runs on Google’s latest Android Jelly Bean, so that you will get a very similar user interface and experience. However, with Hudl, you will get also GPS connectivity to find the location. In addition, both budget Android tablets offer Micro-USB and HDMI ports.

  • Argos MyTablet – 1.6GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Micro-USB and HDMI ports, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
  • Tesco Hudl tablet – 1.5GHz A9 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Micro-USB and HDMI ports, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, GPS


If you are going to purchase tablet for storing more files, movies and pictures, then Hudl is better choice than Mytablet. It offers 16GB of internal storage capacity that you can extend up to 48GB using 32GB Micro SD card. On the other hand, Argos MyTablet offers half of that. However, you can increase storage capacity of MyTablet up to 32GB using Micro SD card slot.

  • Argos MyTablet – 8 GB, Micro SD support
  • Tesco Hudl tablet – 16 GB, Micro SD support

Winner: Hudi


Want to use Hudl to run for more time? If so, then select Tesco Hudl tablet that runs approximately 9 hours with single charge, while Argos MyTablet runs 5 hours, which sounds low in comparison. It is lower than average for a tablet of this size.

  • Argos MyTablet – Claimed 5 hour battery life
  • Tesco Hudl tablet – Claimed 9 hour battery life

Winner: Hudi


Without any doubt, Hudi is clearly winner because it comes with sharper resolution, faster processor, more capacity, longer battery life and better front & rear camera. Price of Tesco Hudl is £20 higher than Mytablet, but it doesn’t matter because with extra price, it offers better features. Light gaming, occasional surfing and video suit both devices, but if you are looking for anything more, then you should consider tablet with better features.
