    Not in Love with it but, it Works ... VERY Well...

    First off, it's not a secret that this tablet's Operating System is, at it's core, Android. That being the case, I hate Amazon's dark, bland, customized, user interface, I hate the intrusive, obnoxious and often confusing lockscreen ads and I hate the boxed-in feeling of the decidedly iOS-like experience that I'm left with. Beyond that, the thing is built like a tank, it feels good in the hands and it just WORKS well. While I vehemently disagree with them about what you end up with as a software experience, Amazon knows what they're doing. It works and it pushes their corporate agenda. If you're not interested in plugging into the Amazon ecosystem and you don't want to bother with a few minutes of nerve jungling but simple software hackery to overcome that... a little..., then this device is NOT for you but, you'll be missing out on a VERY good performer for the price because, honestly, it's great little device! My three year old absolutely LOVES it and, for the price, even the Android purist in me can tolerate it with a straight face and a small degree of satisfaction.

    I originally bought the 8gb Fire 7- 7' for $30 but had to upgrade to the 16gb for like $60. It's a little smaller than what I thought it would be BUT still functional. I think an inch or 2 more it would be the size of some of the larger smartphones. Pros: Lightweight, small (great for purse, small briefcase storage), color selections. Cons: Could be too small for some people (origninally for my young nieces, great idea BUT given it to my parents maybe too small for them). Also, I was bummed that the Fire 8 was cheaper than the Fire 7 and I had already bought accesories for the Fire 7. OVERALL: No a bad purchase... My parents like their Tablets.

    I bought this to replace a Kindle that I have had for 8 years. So there is a whole lot of differences. I like them all. There is only one thing they changed that I don't like. I use this mainly for reading. On my old Kindle fire when you purchased a new book it appeared on a shelf. Books you have read where in your library. The new one just puts everything in your library together. So you have to search for the books you haven't read yet. Maybe there is away to separate them. I just haven't figured it out if there is.

    Got one during the thanksgiving deals!! If you are looking for a tablet to browse, read books or do simple amazon shopping this is a good tablet for the price. Amazon store does't have all the apps like andriod or ios but certainly has enough to keep you going. Only reason for a missing start, I feel the tablets performance is slow, see lag swiping between pages and the camera is just for the sake of having one, not even a decent quality... otherwise good tablet for the price.

    Easy to Use Tablet with Alexa

    Amazon tablets are great, they're straightforward to use. When you first fire the thing up it walks you thru a tutorial of all of the available features with the tablet and Alexa functionality. Tablet works well for watching movies and shows, as well as playing music. Does slow down a little when you get close to your storage limit, or have too many Amazon profiles linked. This functions as a kids device as well when you enable amazon free time/amazon family. Interface will match that of the Amazon kids tablets after that for child users.

    Not as good as old Kindle Fire.

    I like my old Kindle Fire better than this 7th generation. No one carries the screen protectors or a decent case for it. You have to order them online. The battery usage meter & time on the new one is very tiny. If you are playing a game, or in an app, you can't tap the bottom of your game to see battery usage or time. There's no carousel. It's set up like a phone home page. Thought the speed would be faster...it's not. Just very disappointed. There are other issues, but, I don't remember what they are right now, because I don't use it much. I actually use my old K.F. all the time, every day.

    The All-New Fire 7 tablet works great. I purchased this for my 6 year old so it is primarily used for ABCmouse.com, netflix and several games he has downloaded. I would recommend going up in memory size if you want to download a lot of content. Compared to my oldest son's Samsung this one feels much more durable and I am less afraid of him breaking it. The quality is much better than I had expected because of the low cost. I am very pleased.

    Pros - For the price of an MP3 player, you get so much more entertainment & internet access. Apps are Amazon-centric, still you can access missing Apps (e.g., YouTube) via the internet. I like the ability to add memory-laden files via micro sd card. Cons - The camera creates poor quality images. And I'm rankled that I can't remove adds from the lock screen. This tablet is my property, I should have a choice in the matter.

    Easy to use, great size. Alexa works well, for the most part. Also like that it syncs up with your Amazon account. Bluetooth and wifi both work well.The only thing is if you don't like to see ads on the start screen pay the extra to get it with no ads. You can pay to turn them off later as well if you choose on your Amazon account.

    My daughter was looking for a small tablet to use at airports to read and pass the time. The service person recommended this, and we found it good value and a nice little tablet.

    I bought two of these. The first was for my 10 year old for his birthday and my older son loved it as well so I bought one for him for Christmas. Even my four year old uses it. It’s easy for them to navigate. They mostly use it for games, music and schoolwork. Can’t beat the price.

    Purchased for my Mother however she doesn't have WIFI and doesn't want to, so this gift I will keep for myself! My old Kindle still works, but won't live forever as it is one of the first ones that came out and battery doesn't keep charge long.

    I love this tablet. I originally wanted it for doing puzzle apps on the train but I didn't realize how versatile it is. I can read books, browse sites, and watch movies, plus keep notes on it for my job. It is, basically, a mini computer.

    This is my second Kindle Fire. I love my old one but it was the 2nd generation. Love my new one. The color is awesome. I like that it can hold an SD card for additional storage. It is nice to have a camera on it, although I rarely use it. I mainly use it to read books and as a tablet.

    Wife is replacing her ipad mini with this kindle so we were a little apprehensive in the differences between apps and such, but so far it's been pretty simple to use. Believe me, if the wifey is able to use it without asking me a bunch of questions, it's working as intended.
