    A really great, lightweight tablet but despite what the Best Buy associate told me, this does not run a full, true Android OS.

    I wanted something I could control my house with with android platform.I was a little disappointed in the fire tablet. It does not have everything that android software has to offer.There's limited apps that you can put on this.But all in all it was a good purchase I didn't return it.It does the Amazon app very well which controls most to my house.

    I purchased two of these for my little girls, both of them seem to be laggy however it doesn't seem to bother them, I personally couldn't use it. Amazon App Store is nowhere near as good as the App Store for Android or iOS.

    Its a decent travel size, but lacks a lot of apps I can use on my android and sometimes a bit lagging in speed. Buy for the price, its a good tablet

    Love the price point and all the free games that can be downloaded. This saves me from having to buy games on portable gaming devices like nintendo ds or ps vita. My only gripe is the non android interface. It is confusing to navigate through.

    I like the fire tablets as a go to device for the kids. They are so reasonably priced that you dont mind getting them for the kids to use. They allow them to play games, get online for youtube etc, use it as a kindle for reading and if you have prime you have access to all these dl's for free. You can also hack them quite easily so you can use them as a regular android device to access google play services too.

    Remember, this is a kindle. Kindle tablets mostly revolve around the Amazon eco system. You won't get much of a android experience. Still the tablet is very functional and affordable

    A decent eco-tablet, but an Amazon Advertisement

    As a tablet at its price, it is not bad. It is not very powerful, but little power is needed as a quick-grab web browser. It works well as a tablet left around the house for random use, such as in the bathroom. The OS is not stock Android, so do not expect to use it like a typical tablet. The battery is decent, and lasts for several days with intermittent use, unlike Windows tablets that seem to drain each day, even when in sleep mode. Amazon has taken over the OS on this tablet, and advertises through the tablet constantly.
