5 Reasons to Buy the Amazon Fire 7 & 4 Reasons Not To



Don't Buy if You Want Full Android

Don't Buy if You Want Full Android

The Amazon Fire 7 tablet is impressive, and it is a version of Android, but it isn't full Android with Google Play. 

Yes, there are some ways you can install Google Play and side-load apps, but you don't get the full Android experience of customization and you will not be able to run all Android apps out of the box. 

Some of the workarounds require more time and patience than the average user has. If you just want an Android Tablet that has all the apps and services as your Android phone and that syncs app store purchases, you should consider looking at the best cheap Android tablets, including new Lenovo tablets, instead of the Amazon Fire 7 tablet.

    I would disagree with this. We bought our two kids (3 and 5) two 7″ kindle tablets on prime day for $30 each. They have both used them for over a year, without a problem. Part of that is because we bought two shock- and drop- proof cases for $10 each on eBay. We added 16gb SD cards at $8 each, and suddenly we have almost as good a deal as the Kid Tablet, but for less than $50. If they break one (not sure how that would be possible, as these cases are pretty sturdy), we’ll just pick up another tablet when they go on sale (seems to happen 3 times a year).
