I bought this as a gift thinking it would be a good starter piece for someone who is very outdated in the technology arena. I hate ads, so I went with the ad-free version. When the tablet arrived, I thought I had gotten the wrong one, but no. Amazon just makes it impossible NOT to have their stuff shoved in your face. There's a screen for Audible, books, products, recommendations based on your recent purchases... I didn't buy a shopping device, I bought a g--d--- tablet. It went right back and I spent 3x more for a proper tablet from Samsung.
