Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This tablet is exactly what Amazon was describing. It is cheap, looks good, loads apps quickly, expandable storage, good speakers, decent screen and all while staying under 80 bucks.
The start up didn't take long and it came preloaded with my account on it. For 80 dollars this is a good buy and the complaints on the wieght and the ads are ridiculous reasons to give this tablet a shabby review.
Buy this tablet if you want a cheap e-reader that can also sure the web, watch movies and shows, check Facebook or Twitter, or read books on. Ignore the negative reviews and you won't be disappointed.
Edit: After having this for a few months and using it at least once a day I can safely say that for 80 bucks (its on sale right now (08/26/17 for 60 bucks) it is the steal of century. It is an 80 dollar tablet and it will freeze if you try and treat it like something that has an insanely powerful processor and RAM. If you treat it like a digital e-reader you will never have an issue. Just be patient and let things load instead of getting frustrated and trying to keep clicking on things. This will cause it to freeze. Treat it well and it will not let you down.
Let's just jump right to the Pro's and Con's shall we?
~Amazing Screen resolution
~Alexa is kind of awesome
~Battery life. OMG! I've charged it once so far, I've watched YouTube videos on it, streamed a movie and a few TV shows and I use it for Facebook and I'm not even half way down on the battery after 3 days. Wow!
~The OS. The operating system is simple, responsive, and beautifully done. Everything is easy to find and it's really easy to navigate.
Only one Con...
~Charge port. The charge port is sticky and doesn't seem as high quality.
Overall this is a fantastic tablet and worth so much more than the price. I LOVE IT!
It has about 12 hours battery life, it has many settings that you can use to save your battery by going off Wifi if you don't need it. It is an 8 inch HD display, it has a quad core processor, 1.3 gigahertz. It it has 16 or 32 gigabytes of internal storage, and a MicroSD slot for up to 256GB. So you really have a lot of storage! It is so well made, I was surprised, because I have three other tablets which take forever to open. The Amazon Fire comes on instantly. You push the "on" button and it's on. It also contains 'Alexa', which will be really helpful in accessing information and entertainment. You can ask questions, play music, check your calendar, you can get news, and weather, and so much more. Just press the home button and ask 'Alexa'. You can enjoy hundreds of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle ebooks you can even have a text- to-speech narrator, who will read the book to you! How AWESOME is that? I can't say enough about this tablet. I love it. It has Netflix, Facebook, HBO and Spotify. Prime members get unlimited access to so many things at no additional cost. I would highly recommend this tablet to anyone! It seems to have brought us into a different venue. if not just a tablet anymore, it now has Alexa and she'll show you how to navigate through this tablet. From one app to another just by speaking.
It comes in a variety of colored covers. But this is not a tablet case. If you want a tablet that is completely covered, front and back, you will have to buy a case separately. The case that comes with your Kindle Fire is just the back side of the case it does not cover the front. [...] Thank you for reading my review.
