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)...

There are times - web browsing, for instance - when we had to remind ourselves how cheap the Vega is, given its performance lived up to other far more expensive tablets. At other times, the cost-cutting required to hit that price reared its head, with...

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

If you thought Google had mastered everything in its own Nexus tablets then think again. Nvidia has pushed the design brief beyond a typical budget Android tablet and shown that power, flexibility and a great Android experience can be had for a price...

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...

Advent Vega review


Can this budget Android 2.2 tablet compete with its more expensive competition?

Responsive ; Good browsing experience ; Battery is adequate

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

This is a fairly accomplished touchscreen internet device with additional features including checking your emails and, er, telling the time. As such, it's a decent effort at a very attractive price. But anyone looking for a fully fledged Android tablet...

Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 review


You get what you pay for, right? Well the £140 Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 tablet begs to differ

Lightning speed Stylus included Micro HDMI

Plasticky build Slightly low-res screen

With its lightning quick performance and low cost, this 7in tablet is outstanding value

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 review


Choosing a budget Android tablet isn't easy because there are so many good-quality models to choose between. Tesco's Hudl and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD fight it out at the low end (and don't forget the Asus Memo Pad HD 7), while Google's own Nexus 7 is...

For the price, the Advent Vega offers an awful lot and is better than the Tesco Hudl in almost every way. Google’s new Nexus 7 is better overall, mainly because of its excellent screen and battery life, but it costs £70 more and has no microSD card...
