I found the interface to be a giant amazon advert. The alternative firmwares all seem to have various glitches (like camera no working). At least I managed to get google play on.

Nice enough tablet though, but I wouldn't use it day to day - Prefer pure android.

How is this for watching videos on? Thinking about getting one for playing movies on during flights instead of taking my Surface Pro 3. Is the screen too small?

IIRC you can modify the stock firmware depending on the firmware version e.g. replace the launcher, remove adverts, add Google play, etc.

They aren't quick. And there aren't many apps that you can install without a lot of messing about.

I guess it all depends on what you need it for. I got mine purely for watching Amazon prime videos, netflix and Kodi when I travel. I don't think its much use for much more than this with the lack of apps in the amazon store.

I find that it is, but it's mainly for my daughter who has her own profile.. I'm not sure if having 2 profiles slows is down? The screen is also very poor but the main comparison is an old fire HDX which did cost a bit more. I might try giving her the main profile (if I can keep some controls) and also see if I can get a faster SD card and see if that helps.

These make great backup devices that you can throw in a bag and not worry about. Not that fast and that that brilliant a screen but they work and are quite well built. I keep mine in my work bag or for when traveling.

Thanks - I'll look into any further mods, I do find the default skin to be a little annoying as I will never buy books, movies or apps from Amazon.

Hehehehe, it's the generic nature of every 'game' out there really?.

'Self' first, 'Consumer' second ..... (though in the thick of things, every once in a while that is, the tide does move back and forth somewhat?) :-)

I got one during the Black Friday sales. I went for the 8GB one thinking I would give it to my daughter but ended up using it myself (as she kept using the aging Ipad Mini 1)

So yes the FireOS is restrictive and if it was only that and buying everything off the Amazon ecosystem, I would have gave up ages ago. The saving grace was I could get Netflix on it, so between Netflix and Amazon Video, theres enough to watch.

However, I was missing vitals things like Now TV (which I subscribe too) and Chrome as a decent browser, as well as many native Google apps like Maps, You Tube etc.

Then I found out you can side load the Google Play onto the device, by installing the Google APK files (like executables) onto the device via USB, and voila, we have Google Play Store thus allowing you to download anything that is on Google Play Store :) Wont link to anything as I dont want you blame me for bricking your device, but its been working a charm for me.

I mainly use the Fire 7" as a media consumer for train journies with the odd bit of surfing, and for £30-40, I'm willing to forgive some of its shortcomings. Surprisingly the screen is very usable, yes its not the greatest resolution but the viewing angles are decent.

I too bought this for £29 during Black Friday. Flashed it with a custom ROM and it's now a vanilla Android tablet, cleansed of everything Amazon. Works pretty well.

I did the same. ResRemix I think, haven't updated it since then (if there is an update haven't checked) but still find it slower and less responsive then FireOS tbh.

Toss up really for what you want. I still only use it as a Kindle using the app but without the restrictiveness of the Amazon crap.

If you wanted to use it a s fully fledged tablet then it would be lacking imho.

Some games I tried wouldn't play or were awful (Walking Dead titles), Fallout was slow and Hitman Sniper was pathetic and Go was slow.

If I find the time I might wipe and update see if its any better since.

It was £29. Enough said really.

its decent for a kids tablet seeing as the actual kids one they do is the same with a case on it for £100 approx

reckon screen is just over three inches smaller against SP3 (diaagonal)! And if you want to stream Amazon video to TV you will also have to buy Amazon dongle :(

X) Thanks, I'm aware it's smaller. Was more wondering if you can comfortably watch films on this during a long flight. I love the screen on my Surface but when I'm travelling with hand luggage only it's a bulky thing (with a case on) and it also needs it's own charger.

Liking the idea of the Fire tablet because it's smaller and can charge via standard USB (correct?). But just wondering if it's too small or not for most people.

Also separate question, does this have Bluetooth so I can connect it to my Bose headset?

It's a 10 minute job to put Cyanogenmod 12.1 (Lollipop) on this and everything works perfectly. No prospect of Marshmallow or Lollipop until someone figures out how to unlock the bootloader.

i have had one of these for a while now over a year , and when i use it the amazon apps thats come with it is just background photos to me which i dont use , i jiust go on what i want and use it to watch movies or tv shows , sometime i browse the web , so if you want it just to watch tv and movies then this is ok , its a bit small because i swap from this to my huddle , and if anyone has a huddle and it freezes or turns of and wont come back on just hold down the on button and the volume down button and wait for about 20 seconds and it just reboots and comes back on i hope this helps

Not quite so a generic 'like for like' is it?.

Amazon Kids Tablet has a hardened Polystyrene Protective Casing around it (first and foremost), secondly it has a 2 Year included Subscription to lots of Kids oriented Content - Games, TV Episodes, TV Films and the like, for free! (which will then set you back £6.99 Per Month, thereafter!), and thirdly (but MOST importantly), is this, Amazon Kids Tablet INCLUDES 2 Years worth of free DELIBERATE Breakdown/Repair, and/or Replace Service built-in to that £100 Kids Tablet Package of theirs?, so ..... for an UNLIMITED amount if time! (eg. IF your little one's butter fingers are more buttery than butter!, you could literally send it back to them on a basis of one once each and every Month to get it 'sorted', for/throughout the whole duration of the 2 Year window that your little ones Kids Tablet is valid for!)

Your previously above aforementioned don't even compare with the Kids one in any way? (not even close ... )

It's like that legendary free 2 Years John Lewis Warrantee/Guarantee, BUT, for the masses?!.

There's a reason why on HUKD hands down (more often than not?), John Lewis 'stuffs' far excel beyond the realms of the exact same equivalent Product selling in otherwise also notable Retail Chains from the likes of Tesco, Sainsbury's, Currys, PC World, and the like, regardless?, or ..... (whether your prepared, and/or happy to then/therefore pay any additional 'extras' in leu of that fact etc?, is an entirely different argument in itself entirely ..... lol). :-)
