Straight swap at John Lewis should it be faulty (but in otherwise good cosmetic condition) ...always handy to keep the box for that uncertainty, adds to appearance of care.
When the Amazon Fire 7'' tablet is on offer, it's on offer, everywhere! This seems to trump Tesco, Argos & Amazon with that 2 year warranty Nice one!
Don't buy it! It's afwul. Unless, you're planning on using it as a mouse mat!

Most mobile phones and tablets only come with 1 year. I don't think there is a law which states how long the warranty period should be.

I have one, and it is absolutely fine for watching tv shows and films or reading the news on the commute to work and it was £35 quid for me so if anything happens to it, it isn't the end of the world!

If it's awful then why did 9,328 (71%) people give it 5 stars? They're all idiots??

Depends what you want it for. If you want to play the latest 3d games then no, it's not right for you. If you are using it for light usage then it's a steal. I use mine for a home automation remote control and it works fine.
Ordered one

Remember too that the Consumer Rights Act also covers purchases for 6 years in England. Wherby if you can prove the fault was inherent in the product (ie - there from time of manufacture) then the product is covered for 6 years

To be fair the John Lewis warranty is fair easier and probably more lax than government mandated rights.

First of all its not bad as a deal its alright to vote hot but the device itself is ****..
Why not look at the linx series with full windows? I bet you can get atleast linx 7 for that price or you might catch a deal for linx 8.
Both devices are superior to this because its full windows and other benefits ehich I'm too lazy to explain.
Its not like everyone is an idiot they just are clueless about this stuff.. And companies tend to use it against you. Just like samsung with there overpriced peace of crap...
Why do people keep asking about installing Android on this machines?

People should check links/instore and know by now it doesn't run it unless you root it/sideload google store to run android apps.

It's not hard people.

I completely agree that there are plenty of other tablets on the market that's far superior then the Kindle Fire, but some people, like myself, may be looking for a cheap tablet. Something that does the basics, like read books, browse the internet, listen to music and load movies. I'll only be using this when I travel. Plus if I break or lose it, I wouldn't be so concerned. For £40 I think it's a great tablet for what I need it for. But for someone who has the money to splash or needs a better spec tablet, then this deal isn't for you.

Maybe the fact some people are not savvy enough to do it in the first place.

Not too difficult saying yes or no to help.

Why did my iPhone only have 1 year? And my Surface 2, and my HP laptop, and nearly everything I've ever bought. That's a load of crap
its minimum 2 year as long as its taken back to the original place of purchase, apple even asked me if i wanted to make a claim under eu law, but i was still jn the 1 year warranty

Linx 7 is about £10-£20 more and you do get full windows on it. But the battery life is only 3 hours! As mentioned, I want a tablet for when I travel, so 3 hours is **** (as you like to put it), so the Kindle Fire 7 is perfect for me.

For someone who is so opinionated and dead certain that there are better deals/tablets out there, why not post them here on HUKD and share it with the community?



Edited by: "chaos86" 10th Feb 2016
There`s always someone saying you can get this and get that but they never post a link for them.
The post is about Fire 7 at £39.

Post a Linx 7 for that price, preferably on a new thread.
Be careful if you want to install the Play store on these. I think the last OS update from Amazon patched some permission hole or something the installer was using.

I bought one before Christmas and use it every day on the train but it would be much less useful with only the Amazon store

Well because you should know how it works with deals you can't get them anytime you want it.. You just missed linx 7 and linx 8 for £40..
Yes it is about fire 7 which isn't worth those £39 not matter how you look at it...
People saying that stuff to help and not just to argue...
I mean hey do whatever you want its not my money.

£10 more and yeah you missed those deals.. Maybe ebay? You might get it for that much if you work a little. You can't expect to get a deal any time you desire..
Even if there isn't any moment and you can't wait just get some used/refurbished full android tablet for that much or even less of ebay..
Yes 3 hours of watching youtube video.. I mean c'mon..
Plus its windows turn off everything you dont need and it will last long enough..
Of course that tablet will last 7 hours because all you gona have is a browser since it doesnt even have play store and you'll be stuck without apps...

Fire 7 is only perfect for amazon to sell and promote stuff..

You do get apps, the selection browseable via the Amazon App store. Which included almost all the ones I had on my Android phone. About 17/20 apps I use. Majority of other android apps can be loaded by simply clicking the APK files.

Fire 7 is also perfect if you're invested in the Amazon ecosystem ;).

Yeah.. well its 17/20 only in your case.. When it comes to .apk files you wont get any updates.. And I doubt you can legaly buy it and transfer it to kindle(dunno about legal stuff here).
What's the radio It's not 4;3 and also with stock android can you get all the on demand apps what's battery life

No point commenting. The guy is adamant that the Kindle Fire 7 is crap. He doesn't understand that someone else's needs are different to his. For me it's perfect. I only need a simple tablet (no fancy apps) and this does everything I want it to and has 7 hours battery life, which is what I need when I travel. So yes I might watch a movie or YouTube for more than 3 hours. If I wanted something more powerful I would just use my laptop. Would probably last the same time as the Linx 7, but least it has a physical keyboard.

VLC, Viber, Met Office, Evernote, ES File Explorer, eBay, Wunderlist, Facebook, Google Maps, Pocket, Skype, CCleaner, Trainline, Airbnb, Speedtest, Natwest, Whatsapp, Rightmove, SoundCloud, Droid Scan Lite..
Had to APK Firefox. Updating can simply be installing the latest APK. Installing an APK involves copying a file over and clicking it. There'll be stuff you can't get from Android, mainly paid for stuff, but that's same with any OS. There's stuff on iOS that you can't get on Android. Doesn't mean Android is terrible because not all developers choose to support it.
