It also has an 8MP camera and a thin, aluminium design with strengthened glass, while Amazon says the tablet is “three times as durable as the 10th generation iPad 10.9 as measured in tumble tests.” Amazon has dropped the price to £159.99 – an impressive £90 saving.

Wireless Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Earbuds

These Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds are a great budget-friendly alternative to similar earbuds from Apple and Samsung. They’re already half price at £24.99, but Amazon Prime members can save an extra £5 on a range of colours including black, white, red and blue.

The earbuds offer stellar ENC noise reduction, 36-hour battery life on one single charge and faster charging that fully charge them within an hour.

Our tech expert Harriet hailed these earbuds as “better than any other pair” she’s had. Alternatively, there’s £30 off the Sony WF-1000XM5 wireless noise cancelling headphones and £80 off the Bose QuietComfort Ultra wireless noise cancelling earbuds.
