Good device - with a couple caveats. I "hacked" mine to install apps from Google Play and not just Amazon Apps store. Google offers many good apps I use regularly that aren't available through Amazon. The 8 gigabyte version fills up very fast. I don't have a huge amount of apps installed and it's already complaining about low storage.
I (like many people) purchased one of these tablets last year during Amazon's Prime Day sale. I must say that I'm shocked at how well it has held up. Sure, I may not have used it as much as my other tablets (two iPads and a Surface), but when I did use it I am always amazed at what you can get for $30 USD (on sale). I was a bit hesitant with the resolution of the display, but it has turned out to be pretty usable. I mainly use my Fire for watching media I have stored locally or on my storage server, and it works decently for that, but I haven't tried things such as Netflix and Amazon's streaming services. Spotify works well on this device. The biggest issue I've had with this tablet is the audio level. Even when turned all the way up, it always tends to be a lot quieter than my other devices. I use Spotify on all of my devices (4 iPhones, 2 iPads, Microsoft Surface and all my other computers) and I've never had this issue with anything other than this Kindle with regards to low audio output. It's not limited to Spotify though. This tablet has been really nice for the price, and I'd definitely look at other Kindle Fire devices when I go to get another tablet. Sure, the specifications may not be amazing, but it's not too bad of an experience.
A great starter tablet...full of features and more available. Glad to see amazon finally installed Bluetooth... Alexa here we come. For £29 you'd be mad not to buy one!

It doesn't lag at videos, videos don't really care if the tablet has 1GB or 4GB of RAM. It works excellent, it just can't keep many things in RAM. And if you close your apps manually, you don't even need RAM because that's the whole point why there is RAM in a device.
AnonD-441601, 16 Aug 2017Thats only your opinion and its unreal. yes it is my opinion, but trust me it isn't unreal in practical world.

And yes 1 gb ram is not enough, but amazon has optimized the software to run videos and surf web without an lag. it does lag however when you throw high end software or games. I know that because i own one.
7 inch screen and 2980mah seems like a joke, but they managed to get 8 hours of screen on time out of it, thanks to the lower screen resolution, low power chip, and good optimization.

There also some people who wants a durable tablet for their kids and dont want to spend too much. For those people this one is a good choice
Maybe for its price shpuld be good but who on the earth will find this weak puppet between tablets usefull.
Finally added by GSMArena, got it at prime day for 35 and installed play store. Great value for money tablet which lags less than the Xperia M4 Aqua and has more storage available.
