The Amazon Fire 7 makes a lot of sense if money is tight and you’re already a Prime member. It’s portable, well built, and packs in a lot for the money. Compromises are par for the course unless you can afford to spend more.

While this 7-inch tablet's hardware could be faster, the design could be more exciting and the battery life longer, that would detract from the amazing bargain that the Fire 7 is. It's easy to recommend for anyone looking for a tablet for kids - as it will survive the rough and tumble of kids, meet entertainment requirements, and provide a nice safe space to play too.

If you need a tablet that can adequately (though not impressively) do the essentials, and the short battery life isn't a complete turn-off, it's a decent deal. It could also be good for kids, seeing as it has Amazon's parental controls system built right in. But if you can go up from $50, there's no reason to get the Fire 7 when the same company offers a slightly better tablet (or one with better specs, anyway) for less than $100.

The Fire 7 is the most affordable tablet in Amazon’s lineup but, unfortunately, you get what you pay for. Yes, it does have hands-free Alexa and there’s more storage on the newer Fire 7 than earlier models. But the performance is dismal, the display is lackluster and the battery life barely lasts a whole day. You would be much better off saving a few extra dollars and getting the Fire HD 8.

A good cheap tablet gets minor improvements

from Cnet

Amazon's slightly upgraded entry-level Fire 7 tablet remains a good value, but you're still better off spending a bit more for the HD 8 instead.

Ideal for kids and still great value

from Tech Advisor

With a better selfie camera and more storage the 2019 Fire 7 is improved, albeit only slightly. And you can’t really expect any more at this price.
