Ethically OK ? from a company who avoids taxes in every country on the planet ?

I'd install vanilla android and see how they like it

you might be able to refuse postage and get it sent back for free. See if you can talk to Amazon on live chat (if they still do it)

Yes I thought this but it's in a package with 4 other items? Being delivered by royal mail ... Any ideas?

I got the 7 inch and its pretty good. please note that the new update disables external apps like google play etc. so the way around is follow the instructions in the internet with the downloads . When you find the install button disabled, put the device to sleep, then awake and unlock. the button should now work.

enjoy!

You should, the 7 is painfully underpowered.

Order this and send the 7 back.

I know amazon states this model comes with special offers on which you can pay £10 extra to remove, base don price this would be the case for argos also yet it doesn't state this anywhere on the website, does anyone have confirmaiton on this though?

I got 2 of these from argos for Christmas at 49.99, just bought 2 more with the vouchers, going to take the first 2 back when I pick them up... saves a tenner.

How do you unlock these to get full access to the Play store?

Hmm bit trickier then, not sure if they would pick it up for free for a change of mind, might have to send it back yourself. Still see what Amazon says.

What reason can I give for returning without paying charges?

Bought for my sons birthday. Very happy with it.

You don't have to give a reason, distance selling rules and all that. As long as you've not opened the box (as-in it's still factory sealed) they have to take it back.

I thought unless something wrong with it you had to pay to return

This is the same price on Amazon right.

Is it difficult to return stuff to Amazon now. I've never returned anything before but I was considering doing so?

Order from Argos and then refuse delivery from Amazon. If you can't refuse delivery, you should be able to return it free. Get in touch with Amazon to clarify.

Are they any good if you dont have a prime account ?

Not sure thats possible but why would you want to anyways..... the echo dot sounds pretty bad as it is, but its a Bose speaker compared to these tablets.

Thanks op. Just have to return my Amazon order when it arrives on Wednesday.

5% cashbook with Barclays as well.
Same here

Aaarghhh...literally set one up yesterday night after buying from John Lewis...

Adverts are pretty unobtrusive, instead of having lock screen pic you get a static advert instead

Urgh, I just ordered from Amazon this morning! D'oh, will they not price match

iv'e got the echo 2 as well as the tab. just playing with them tbh. i see you can make a group with the echo dot and the echo. but struggling to see if you can do the same with the tablet. be nice to walk from one room to another with the same music playing.

Not sure if it has been asked yet or not, but can you put the Play Store on this?

I think this one question might be the most asked this last week. Along with 'is this £199 4k tv true HDR?'!

Sigh
