Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It offers amazing value for the money
The Fire 7 is only around $50, but in terms of build quality and performance, it is easily comparable with $200+ tablets. The chassis is durable, and it will easily survive a fall to the ground. Apps load fairly quickly; streaming videos and playing games, for the most part, works very well, although it does occasionally feel sluggish.
This tablet is only 7 inches in diagonal, it won't take much space in the bag and you might even fit it in the pocket of your jacket.
Pro It's a great tablet for basic everyday tasks
This tablet has you covered in terms of basic functionality. You can browse the web, read books and articles, and listen to music and audiobooks. It also comes equipped with Amazon's virtual assistant - Alexa. You can ask her to set an alarm, check the weather, jot down a shopping list, and so on.
Pro Battery life is decent
One charge lasts for about 8 hours of normal use, which is on par with more expensive 200 and 300 dollar tablets.
Pro The display works very well for reading
The Fire 7 has a decent 1024 x 600 display with good contrast that makes the text of a book look clear and sharp.
Con It's very basic
For an entry-level tablet, the Fire 7 offers a lot of bang for the buck, but there's nothing spectacular or special about it.
Con The overall performance is sub-par
The Fire 7 deals pretty well with some basic tasks, but it's not the best choice for every-day use. With a quadcore 1.3 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, it's not going to work for watching films or gaming.
