What you need to ask yourself is... What do you need it for? At under $100 it performs exceptionally well for streaming on WiFi, movies, music, lite games and general amazon apps. The amazon OS (operating system) is on the android platform. The tablet is ready to use right out of the box. It operates focused on Amazon content and apps. For people who wish to use more google apps some extra downloads will need to be done to access those. It’s not straight forward or user friendly to accomplish that but it can be done to do that. The screen is pleasing graphically at 8 inches. Touch screen is responsive but can lag depending WiFi connection at times. It can operate in an off line mode without Alexa. The sound with Dolby is good within a couple feet for a personal devise (better than a smart phone). It’s light weight but aquard to carry around at its size. What this tablet is... it’s an entry level (inexpensive) tablet that will do and run all the basic stuff very well and Alexa is neat to be able to help. My main gripe is that reading about the benefits for the tablet that a case for it goes into great detail, however, it is not included, nor is it a part of what is included and is a bit misleading. That having been said, I am happy with the purchase. The battery has been preforming well at lite to normal use, with a reacharge overnight. I use my cell phone to hot spot a WiFi connection to the tablet on the go and a separate Bluetooth speaker for music, which also makes movies sound better. All in all, this tablet is a great choice if you know what to expect it’s not supposed to do or be. It is 3 times cheaper than say an iPad... so, affordable and great for entertainment uses... I enjoy using it!
