Advent Vega Review


Low-cost Android tablets aren't unusual; good low-cost Android tablets are a different matter. Advent's Vega slate – on sale through DSG's PC World, Currys and Dixons in the UK – bucks the Android trend by carrying a low sticker price of £249 ($395)...

Spend some time tinkering, however – whether that be the basics of installing a third-party app store, or going the more complex route of flashing an alternative ROM – and the Vega proposition is far more appealing. That appeal seems to have caught the...

Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 review


The 7-inch tablet powered by plenty of Nvidia oomph and with a stylus to boot

Value for money ; Blazingly fast ; Great for gaming ; Good speakers

Average design ; Screen not full HD ; No 3G/4G model

Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 review


If tablet quality improved with name length, the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 would be unstoppable. But long names are not the source of power. This Currys and PC World exclusive slate made by Nvidia has the Google Nexus 7 and, kind of, the iPad mini...

Top gaming graphics, DirectStylus is great, excellent cover (sold separately), good battery, plenty of power, pure Android OS, affordable

Could be a little lighter, needs more high-end games, resolution doesn't beat the competition

The Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 is one of the best affordable 7-inch tablets on the market, particularly if you're a gaming fan or like to use a stylus. If you haven't used a stylus the functionality of this one will have you addicted in no time. Leaving...

Advent Vega review


The Advent Vega is a 10.1-inch Android tablet that seems to be causing quite a stir. On paper this is justified: you get a 10.1-inch Android 2.2 tablet, with a capacitive display, it is slim and looks good, and features a powerful Nvidia Tegra 2...

Build, looks great, Tegra 2 powerful, affordable

Ill-conceived controls, out of the box it does very little, lacks the complete Google package, adding content will be tricky unless you know Android well

An undeniably powerful Android tablet, but you're not really provided much from the off. It's an affordable route to hassle free Flash complete internet browsing with a great display for video. However, most likely to become a play thing for Android...

The Advent Vega is a budget Android tablet which excels and disappoints in equal measure

Responsive ; Good browsing experience ; Battery is adequate

No Home button ; Silver buttons are awful ; No Android Market ; Budget features

Can the Vega recover from this fairly mediocre start and win us over? Next Page: Advent Vega: Features

Advent Vega Tegra Note review


Incredible performance and battery life for the price. The Vega Tegra Note is an absolute bargain

The Advent Tegra Note is a real bargain, especially when you consider its fast processor, great battery life and its stylus support. You can't get a better tablet than the Tegra Note without spending significantly more.

Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 video review: flawed but still a great budget Android tablet


There are lots of budget Android tablets to choose between, but Advent's new Vega is one you'll want to add to your shortlist.

Advent Vega Tegra Note 7


A powerful and affordable 7-inch Android tablet with a great stylus

Useful power saving tools ; Tegra 4 is great for gaming ; Accurate and responsive stylus

Worrying flex in the design ; Average screen quality ; Poor front-facing camera

Advent Vega Tegra Note review


The Nvidia Tegra Note is a superbly powerful 7-inch slate, well equipped to tackle the latest games thanks to the supercharged Tegra 4 chip inside. At £180, it's affordable too. Its screen is poor though and various software bugs take the shine off an...

Extremely powerful ; Affordable price ; Handy stylus for writing notes ; Decent build quality

Unimpressive, low-resolution display ; Various software bugs make it frustrating to use ; Older version of Android
