1st and foremost this is a tablet. but what you DO with it makes it FLY!
you can download about 3 little programs which allow it to go to & use google play apps. so options expanded there!.
i can't recall but google hangouts and the hangouts dialer can be downloaded from googleplay store & via google voice, you CAN use it as a phone in wifi range. THAT makes this a phone still free calls via the 2 above apps . so it CAN be used as a "phone"
if your REALLY feeling froggy you can "flash the rom" though it's not for the faint of heart because you can brick the device and make it a very sleek pretty paperweight. fair warning!
the hardware is there and frankly i like the amazon kindle fires interface. for the price? you'd be hard pressed to find a tablet AS good as the kindle fire HD 8!
buy one on sale even and go have fun!! people taking crap to seriously..ENJOY the device!!
AnonD-344138, 03 Oct 2015I really like amazon's product 😀 all i dislike about it are: non-cellular connection,low stora... morein all fairness when do you see tablets that make calls....not often im guessing lol also the internal storage is as good as most flagship devices and it DOES have a micro sd slot. their is not one bit of truth to your review
