Amazon Fire Tablet 7"
Amazon Fire, 7" Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB - Includes Special Offers. $49.99
Amazon Fire is an amazing product, you can do a lot with it. For me it's the best entertainment gadget, you can watch movies, TV shows, listen to music, surf the web, play games, read E-books etc.
Amazon Fire has 7" inches IPS display (171 ppi / 1024 x 600) and it runs on 1.3 GHz quad-core processor. It has 8 GB of internal storage, so plenty of space for your games, photos, movies, Ebooks and music. It also comes with free unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content and photos taken with Fire devices. Internal storage is expandable with a microSD card for up to 128 GB of additional storage.
Battery life can go up to 7 hours for reading, surfing the web, watching videos, and listening to music.
The user interface is Fire OS 5 designed for quick access to your apps and content plus personalized recommendations that make it easy to discover new favorites.
Amazon Underground, a one-of-a-kind app store experience where over $10,000 in apps, games and even in-app items are actually free - including extra lives, unlocked levels, unlimited add-on packs and more
Enjoy more than 38 million movies, TV shows (Amazon Video, Netflix, HBO NOW), songs, Ebooks, apps and games. However, it doesn't have 4G connectivity.
The best thing about the Amazon Fire Tablet 7" is the price it's only at $49.99 on Amazon.
This really works for me since I used it mostly on Ebooks, web surfing, listening to music, light games, some movies and TV shows. However, if you are a gamer or a movie junkie who loves to watch with a clearer and crisp display and you have money to spare then go with the Fire HD:
Fire HD 6" $99.99
NEW - Fire HD 8" $149.99
NEW - Fire HD 10.1" $229.99
