    I have had a Hudl for a week, but live in France and have found it impossible to connect to my wfi or anyone else's. If you live outside the U.K a Hudle will probably not work and without the internet, it is a piece of equipment with no use whatsoever.

    Mine was an Xmas present and fortunately I had it to set up today. At first AOK then I noticed problems with getting top corner touches to register and then in google couldn't get QWAZ side keys to register, turning it upright to portrait position everything worked but either way up when in Landscape position keys one end or the other when inverted were not working. Downloaded a notes app and proved it - when in portrait no problem, when in landscape problems furthest left keys No response. It's going back tomorrow, such a shame, loved the display but mainly the value for money, if it worked 100%

    I've swapped my Hudl once already but, reading these reports, I realise I had the same problem (on this replacement too); sometimes the screen freezes, then I can't use the left hand side of the keyboard. It's a pain trying to fill in forms etc, booking flights etc so I too am taking mine back for a refund. Shame as it seemed great initially.

    Similar here. Sometimes no keyboard response, until sleep and wake with the power button. Not sure it's all buttons/areas on screen as well when this happens yet. It's a fault but one I will live with for now.

    Can anybody help with a hdmi to tv problem on the hudl? When my hudl is connected to the tv the screen flickers on tv but not on the hudl? Tried changing the resolution but it still happens. Also tried changing the hdmi lead and tried on a different tv

    Like many other postings the bottom left of my Hudl screen doesn't work all of the time. I tried to return my Hudl within in hour of picking it up but it worked fine when I was in the store. The assistant told me that it was probably a calibration problem that was common and would probably resolve itself,he also suggested using a rubber stylus which does work a lot better.

    Bought a Tesco Hudl for my wife for Christmas, unfortunately the left side of the screen didn't work. Took it back to the local store, as soon as the store assistant saw the box at the customer services desk he said, "left side of screen not working" he went on to explain that there was a fault with them and they had seen lots returned with exactly the same problem.

    Despite this tesco policy is that you have to call customer services and get a code before they will exchange. I did this using the phone in the store. Despite the fact that I had the receipt confirming it had been purchased only a few days before with my debit card, and I had the card too, they insisted that I had to provide my name address and telephone number, and that they would do a factory reset. I told the lady that I wasn't happy with that given what the staff member had said and that I wanted a different type of tablet. I provided my details and she issued me with a code for a replacement. She said that the store would exchange for another hudl but an exchange for a different tablet or refund was at the stores discretion - ridiculous!!
    In the end my wife said that she liked the look and feel of the hudl so decided to choose a different coloured one in the hope it would be ok. Unfortunately it is not, it has exactly the same problem, so we are back off to Tesco later to change it, either for the equivalent samsung or the kindle fire,(if they let us that is?)

    Can anybody suggest which of those two are better.

    I bought one last week and couldn't get the microphone or headphone sockets to work I returned it and it was replaced without problems.
    But the replacement also has problems with the speaker socket not working.
    Does anybody else suffer with this?

    I bought one each for my kids at Christmas, so far they are getting on really well with them. But one keeps locking up, you will be playing a game and the left side of the screen stops working to touch, then all the screen stops working to touch. When you want to reboot you cant because you should push the button on the side which then asks you on screen to re-start / shut down, think this one maybe going back.
    Anyone else had a same probs?????

    I bought my wife a hudl for Christmas, and she has had some fun using it (even installed candycrush...), but has had four instances of the screen freezing (doesn't seem to be just the left side of the screen). Can't power off, because you need to tap the screen to confirm the power off; only way out seems to be a paper clip in the little hole at the back to do a hard reset, which sorts it out for a while... We'll keep monitoring it, and if it throws up any more instabnces it'll be on its way back tomorrow to the local Tesco Extra where I bought it. Maybe I should have laid out the extra for a Nexus 7...

    Wow. I am not the only one, then. I got a Hudl for Xmas, epic present, then within two day...
    - Headphone sockets not working, I then thought it was the song, a different version.
    - Freezing. I was on an app and then it froze. I left it for an hour. It was still frozen on the app.
    - Restarting randomly (nobody else?) I would be writing an email and it would restart. It obviously restarted, and I begun rewriting email when it did it again!!
    Back to Tesco, we did telephone thing to returns people. They were gonna test it but I drained the battery so the couldn't. I was definitely getting a replacement!

    I get my replacement - annoyed that although my apps were on the account, they had to be manually installed onto the machine. Then I was buying something over Chrome, and the left side wasn't working. I was baffled. I turned it off and on again and it was alright, for like hardly any time.
    The second Hudl was returned. I am on my third, and what! They are epic when work properly. I think I got lucky. Only been a day though. Apparently according to Tesco they had to get em' out quick due to demand and forgot to check them all over properly before they went on shelves.

    But I guess if you get lucky, they are epic :-)

    I am another grey haired amateur trying to compete with grand-children. Bought a HUDL and set it up. At first seemed OK, but puzzled by lack of replies from people I emailed. Then found emails were not getting through. Although messages first appear in OUTBOX, and then in SENT, they didn't reach recipients. However, the message DID come through on my PC, but not recorded in my PC sent box. I use Virgin Blueyonder as my PC Windows computer. Emails sent to me arrive successfully, but selecting REPLY again results in recording as SENT, but nothing arrives. Any suggestions?

    Took mine back this a.m. Store staff suggested it was a software fault and a total update via the settings menu would fix it. It didn't so rang help line and got a code for replacement as soon as I described the problem. Returned to store and got replacement, but only after having to get store manager to sanction replacing an "on line purchased" item with one from store stock. Their system appears not to have provision for the staff to do a stock transfer. So far so good with the new one, been using it for an hour or two this evening with no probs, screen seems much more responsive. In discussion with one of the store staff I was told they had replaced 30-40 since Christmas.

    Hello

    how does the tesco huddle compare against the nexus 7 2014 version

    I have had my Hudl since early December, two weeks ago I went to use my Hudl (was left turned on and charged well) to find the screen would light up navy but nothing would come up, I've tried resetting it numerous times, and when turning on it makes all the right sounds but still nothing appears on the screen. Tecso is being extremely unhelpful, refusing to give our money back and refusing to exchange due to 5 of the Tescos we have visited having none in stock, they also won't order one for us.

    Also, does anyone know how to remove the back of the Hudl to get inside it?

    Hi, I have had my Hudl since November last year.
    I have compared to a number of other Android tablets and the Ipad and found that over all it is working fine. No lockups etc.
    I use mostly to look at email and quickly browse without booting up a laptop or PC and as a Kindle.

    Issues are minor but here we go:-
    Screen brightness and tone/contrast control not as good as it could be. Kindle could allow the screen backgound to go more grey.
    Touch screen not as responsive as I would like but fine.
    My biggest moan is that the USB connector is at the bottom. This seems a silly moan but if you but a case with a keyboard the connector will not fit when closed or when open either, maybe a right angled connector will. Need to look into that.

    Otherwise I am very happy withit. I have connected to Wifi all over the place and used as a satnav.

    Bluetooth keyboard sorts out the connector problem.

    Tesco are well aware of the screen being unresponsive and advised me to see if the update that is expected some time this month (February) solves the problem.

    They also said they have no idea which of the Hudl's will experience the screen problem, so you could end up with a replacement with the same fault.

    I've been trying to get a Hudl since before Xmas, but they were never in stock...finally got one yesterday and first impressions were great. I was pleased with the quality for the cost. However today I have had to call Tesco to arrange replacement.....it suffers from the left hand keyboard not working glitch, and occasionally puts 2 or three of the same letter in. . Chap at Tesco says 2% suffering from this glitch....and no probs with ordering a swap, even gave me a 5 refund to cover fuel costs of collecting new one!

    Hi there, had my Hudl since Christmas and will probably be taking it back soon. Reasons are:

    HDMI output constantly cuts out, tried a few TV's and different cables (very common problem apparently, waiting for software update to resolve but nothing yet)

    Compass doesn't seem to work in any of the apps I've tried (not sure if this is common to all hudls) GPS does work though.

    Getting more 'freezes' which need power cycle to cure (never had to reset yet)

    Shame really because I generally like the thing, good screen for reading books and watching videos and not too full of Tesco software. Might try another one. To those who are thinking of replacing their Hudl with a kindle fire, DON'T! They are really locked down in terms of the apps you can use, nothing Google for example, very restrictive.

    Yes, mine is the same (purchased Christmas 2013). Stellarium and Maverick compasses are all over the place. Not sure if this is my Hudl or all Hudls. GPS does seem to work OK though, apps like Maverick will work away from WI-FI if you download the maps of the area you need before going out (use MOBAC).

    i dont really want to take it back as thats my last resort.
    You probably have, but have you pressed and held the power button for about 10 seconds, can take a little while to turn on compared to other devices?
