Just that is enough value for me and it does so much more.
I like the 8 more than the 7:
- bigger screen
- faster to connect to Wi-Fi on power on
- Much better and louder speakers and headphone jacks
- The cases are pricy compared to the price of these things. The foam case is great, especially for kids but as an adult I also prefer the foam case.
Get an SD card if you want to load dozens of movies. A movie is about 1.5G in downloaded form
Amazon's Fire OS modification of Android is not very good, but at this price, I am good with it just using these for web browsers/media players for the family. Fire OS is actually a pretty heavy change from base Android, and doesn't include the Play Store or Google Play Services (by default anyway). If you're just sticking with how the tablet comes, you'll have a fairly limited app selection. Fortunately, it's VERY easy to install the Google Play Store and Play Services without rooting. Just search for instructions, it only takes like 5 minutes to do.
Once you've installed Google Play (and three other things, per instructions) you can download your usual Android apps. There's no app drawer, and I don't know that you can get rid of the other "tabs," but you can at least hide bloatware apps on the home screen inside folders. As of right now, I'm pretty sure you can't wipe it to install a clean version of Android.
