Here’s the £99 tablet that beats Apple’s £300 iPad in a speed test

Does price really mean anything?

If you’ve got the latest iPad this news might not be very welcome.

Tesco’s budget tablet Hudl2 is faster the iPad, according to Which?, which carried out a speed test on the UK’s best-selling models.

Hudl2, which is made by Taiwanese company Wistron, comes in more than £200 cheaper than the iPad mini 3, which was what was used in the test.

The relatively unknown brand Asus’s MEMO Pad 7 ME572C was the fastest. It outperformed the iPad and the Hudl and is on the market for £150.

Which? editor Richard Headland said: “Our tablet speed test is a great indication of how fast tablets can run when downloading apps or using multiple functions at once.

“Nowadays we expect everything in a swipe or a click of the button, so understanding how quickly a tablet is able to process information is important to buyers.”

  • Think anything is better than an Apple iPad, picked up my iPad 3 or whatever Apple didn't want to call it, and its just so dam slow, and gets slower with each update from Apple.

    Isn't it funny how you can manipulate facts of even a respected source like Which? I read the same Which report. Six iPads won Which's coveted 'Best Buy' award and the Huddle didn't win one.
    Apple bashing seems to be popular at LLB. What exactly is your agenda? We just want good unbiased reporting.
