Amazon Fire 7 (2017) Tablet Review

 

Made for penny-pinchers. Amazon's latest Fire 7 Tablet generation is thinner, lighter, equipped with a better display, and supposed to offer an improved battery life. The price, however, remained largely unchanged, and the 2017 generation remains very...

price ; IPS panel ; decent battery life ; solid build quality

poor CPU & GPU ; slow storage ; poor cameras ; speaker

Considering its low price of only $49, the Fire 7 (2017) is a nice and well-rounded offer. We would have preferred to see a more significant upgrade but unfortunately, the slow SoC and internal storage, the low-resolution display, and only 1 GB of RAM...

Amazon Fire 7 (2017) review

 

Amazon's cheap tablet still makes us fairly cheerful

Crazily cheap price ; Decent media performance ; Strong battery life

Screen extremely dull and low-res ; Amazon Appstore still lacking ; Camera verges on the useless

Amazon is still in a $50/£50 tablet league of its own with the Fire 7 (2017), but the low-res display is now arguably a cut too far for a modern media-focused device.

If you were in the market for an inexpensive tablet, Amazon's Fire range has always been a decent choice. While they never set the world alight in terms of specifications and design, they remain a much better option than many other tablets vying for...

Amazon Fire 7 (2017)

 

The Amazon Fire 7 tablet makes a good basic video player and color ebook reader, and it's very easy to use.

Fantastic price. Large content ecosystem. Good parental controls.

Slow performance. Poor camera. Weak speaker.

Yes, there are other cheap tablets out there. You can find them on the shelves at your local drug store, or in the depths of Amazon.com. Many of their specs are similar to the Fire's; some even have more storage. Still, though, they give me the willies...

Amazon Fire 7 (2017) review

 

Cheap as chips and at this price almost as tasty

That price ; Solid build ; Loads of content for Amazon users ; Great for kids

That screen ; Prone to crashes ; Lacks some big apps

The Fire 7's far from the best tablet but it's easily the best ultra-cheap tablet

One of the best tablets out there for those on a tight budget...

Warm colour palette ; Price ; Good battery life ; Tonally balanced through headphones ; Alexa integration

Unsophisticated picture ; Tinny built-in speakers ; Poor camera

A cheap and cheerful tablet that's good value for money

The new Fire 7 is a minor update, but still a great-value tablet at £49

 

The new Fire 7 tablet includes Alexa and a subtly different design. Is is still the best budget tablet? Read our Amazon Fire 7 review to find out.

The Fire 7 is a very minor update to the 2015 7in Fire tablet. It’s a shame that the processor and cameras haven’t been upgraded, but the low price makes it hard to complain. It remains great value and a great way to use Amazon’s services including...

Amazon Fire 7 (2017) review

 

At first glance, Amazon's 2017 edition of its entry-level Fire 7 tablet (it was formerly just " Amazon Fire ") looks virtually identical to its predecessor . However, it's been ever so slightly trimmed down, its battery life is improved and there's...

The Amazon Fire 7 is inexpensive, runs Amazon's user-friendly operating system and houses a microSD card slot expandable up to 256GB. This 2017 edition is slightly lighter and battery life has been improved. Amazon Prime members can access the bevy of...

1,024x600 display is sub-HD quality and not as sharp as the display on the step-up Fire HD 8, which doesn't cost much more. To truly take advantage of what the tablet has to offer, you need an Amazon Prime membership and there's no access to Google...

Despite its performance limitations, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better entry-level tablet than the 2017 Amazon Fire 7.

Alexa comes to new 2017 Amazon Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 tablets

 

Amazon's next generation of budget Fire tablets comes with Alexa, but what else is new?

Those nitty-gritty details are yet to be disclosed. They may in fact be lighter, while performance and battery life may trump last year’s offering. We’ll have to wait until we get them in for review to find out – until then, Amazon has a lot of...
