    If I didn't get it on sale I wouldn't think it was worth it. Losses Wifi Connection too often and you can't purchase from the google App Store.

    This tablet is great especially at a black friday price. My only complaint is I'm not an Amazon product user so when I went to download some of my ($14.99+) paid apps that I have through Google I found out I would of had to repurchase them for use with Amazon, which was my fault for not realizing this from the beginning but unfortunately was a deal breaker for me.

    This is a good tablet. It may be limited in the software apps because Amazon doesn't allow some Google apps. I haven't been able to download the Google play store.

    If I'd known that I'd be subject to an ad every time I turned the device on, and have to pay $15 to turn that off, I might have thought twice before buying this tablet. Also, very hard to add Google apps because of Amazon. But good screen, battery life, wifi connection.

    Nice little tablet, easy to use with very little set up. I only wish it would play nicer with Google. It does not like to get any apps from Google play store, instead sending you to the Amazon app store.Apparently (and this is on me for not knowing ahead of time), not all android apps can be used on both (my tablet and my phone), even though they are both Androids. Other than that little snafu, it's a great little tablet for the money!

    This tablet is good for a first time owner of a tablet. It's response is quick, has the capacity for expansion, plenty of apps available for download. Alexa is included. The battery life is way better than its predecessor. Only thing is that the camera quality is poor and you can't get third party apps in the app store e.g Google maps

    Black Friday purchase! You can't beat the price. The picture quality is very good when using as a device to watch TV etc. I use this every day to stream TV, baseball etc. Only real complaint is we are not huge fans of Amazon and this is obviously an Amazon product. Was a little pain the butt to add Google and the play store, but once I did its fine.

    Would you buy a Wal-Mart tablet? Operating system made by walmart? No, you wouldn't. So why would you buy an Amazon tablet? There are ads on the lock screen. When you go to your apps, it shows three of your apps then rows upon rows of ads. Same goes for books, home, music, games, audible, newsstand, and video. Not to mention shop. The battery life is terrible. You can't install anything made by google (so no chrome or youtube). They force you to use their chrome knockoff, silk. Pros: cheap, comes with f.lux knockoff installed. Please please please don't get it. You're throwing away 50 bucks. Just spend another 50 bucks and get something with Android.
