Argos MyTablet – Battery life
If you are taking the MyTablet on a road trip, the 3,000 mAh battery should get you through at least the first part of the journey. If you are planning to take it on a long-haul flight, prepare to be disappointed. Argos claims you should get up to five hours of power and in general use web browsing, streaming video and playing games but we found it to be closer to four.
Should I buy the Argos MyTablet?
When Tesco announced the Hudl, we feared the worst. What we actually got was a very solid and well-made device. The Argos MyTablet on the other hand is a sub-standard, forgettable, Android device trying to cash in on the flurry of cheap Google-running slates already available.
From afar, it’s a reasonably good-looking. However, the screen is average, the performance underwhelming and it represents the kind of bad tablets that the likes of Google has tried to eradicate over the past couple of years. There’s not a lot to tell the MyTablet apart from a host of much cheaper Android tablets that we wouldn’t recommend either.
The Argos website still lists the original 32GBNexus 7 for £159, and if you can afford to spend a little more, that’s an even better purchase. There are so many routes to buying a solid Android tablet, but you might have to fork out a little more than £100. Trust us, it’ll be worth it.
Keep the £99.99 in your pocket, if you need a cheap Android tablet, there’s plenty of better alternatives than the Argos MyTablet.
