It doesn't have the best battery life.. But the Amazon Fire 7 is definitely the best tablet you can get (for $40) so why not? It does Netflix, it has a headphone jack, what more do you want?

Its only profitable to get the 32gig fire 8 and the amazon OS fells refreshing from the ancient version of Android most Economy hardware has.

Not all of us can afford multi hundred dollar tablets and Apple stuff is way overpriced. Some people want a decent tablet at a decent price. Why bash it? It works, people like it, should be enough right?

I own one since 2015 and it still works fine! I see it as a gadget to expand your phone's lifetime by spending 50 bucks. Directly added google play services which give you way more options. I recently tried to root it to stock android, without success, and changing the launcher seemed to be impossible. Fortunately with an apk called Launcher Highjack I managed to apply Apex launcher (Google Now did not work). Now I have a more stock android looking tablet. Reading some articles and reviews, playing arcade games or even emulating a Nintendo Ds, no problem at all.

There is a simple work around so you can get Google Play services. Just sideload them and you can have access to google play store. I then used a hack called launcher hijack so you can download the google now launcher or use something like Nova launcher. And these things are not very hard to do. It will take you 10 minutes and your device will look and act like a Nexus tablet. One downside, don't download to much apps on it. That 1 GB of RAM will make your tablet really slow. Bit of you only want it for kindle, Netflix and YouTube then this device is awesome. Once you get rid of the horrible Amazon Fire UI.

I read with this all the time. It's more than adequate for the vast majority of people.

I got one on Prime days for $42 CDN. It's a good tablet and mines 16 GB. Got a deal.

An FYI, you can sideload google play onto these things without any external device or rooting. I did it to mine while in AIT.

I purchased a kindle just to have something more comfortable to take notes on in class. The performance isn't great, but in my case it worked just fine for note taking and light reading.

Hrothgar (22 days ago)
This would be good if you had some sort of dedicated purpose for a small cheap computer/tablet. I've seen tablets used for household controls like lights/thermostat/security cameras, for instance. Or, if you wanted to hack or modify a tablet, but not risk expensive hardware.

2:17 "We don't expect amazing noise cancelling audio out of these $30 tablets" How exactly is an external speaker supposed to be noise cancelling? Even the earbuds and headphones that are noise cancelling come with that feature built in and dont depend on the device they are connecting to.

I'm actually using one right now and it's *okay.* Just *okay.* Nothing more, nothing less. One feature I really hate is the replacement for the Google Play Store. No YouTube, no Discord or anything at all. I also hate that the system apps *take up so much space.*

My mother had one of those. She finally upgraded to a larger Kindle Fire when her older one died its final death. Me? I use BlueStacks on my computer and I am looking for an actual Android tablet. Works very well as long as I do not have to do anything else on the (memory deficient) PC that it is on. The problem with actual Android tablets? The OS updates. I want the latest OS... period. If there is a new major version of an OS? Give it to me and give me it within a month of release or forget about it.

my aunt's fire tablet (1st gen) still works, her primary use for is videos, facebook, online shopping, puzzle games, reading. EVERYTHING you do waiting at the Doctor's office, the airport, a flight and especially during a power outage (netflix downloads). So yes, totally worth the $

Amazon Prime .. it rocks for a nice portable entertainment center .. got one for everyone if our family (9 total) and a few for our kids guests/friends .. .. I should also add .. if you don't want FaceBroke, Twitter, and all the other social media apps clogging up you phone or draining your phone's battery this device just rocks ..

I think the tablet is completely worth it for the price it is at. Comparing it to other devices it is pretty bad but it's soo much cheaper than other devices

Do I count to "everyone" group, because I'm not buying this tablet?
ghost Unix (1 month ago)
The real cost of this table is $100 after shipping or paying for prime because you need at least the 32 gig fire HD8 for it to be Profitable. The Amazon fire would normally be hobo garbage if not for the Hannah Montana Linux that makes the Android 5 feel less outdated.
