Are these any good?\x0d\x0a\x0d\x0aBeen looking for a tablet for a little while and was looking at iPads but for £29.99 if this does the same function.. Seems like a no brainer. Tablet will mostly be used for watching video (either via WiFi or via tether to my phone)
These do the same function as an ipad in the manner that a Skoda does the same function as a Rolls Royce, for basic tasks such as browsing, watching video it should be fine for your needs
can you install google play on it?

Yes, I have one and have managed to install Google Play on it, with a bit of messing about.

The Alexa update is great and works pretty much as my Echo would, but on my tablet. Awesome price, I didn't pay much less than this from the Warehouse. Heated
This price is "with special offers". What is this? Will my little ones end up subscribing to all sorts of nonsense?

It's adverts that come up on the locked screen, as soon as you unlock the screen they disappear x
Had to bite at 30. Cheers!
Will it run kodi?
Finally took the leap; didn't fancy bringing around my iPad with me for media consumption.

Can download some Netflix and Prime Video shows to watch offline now
Is this only for prime customers

No they are terrible. I got one for £8 (after vouchers etc) from Argos. Absolute crap. Slow slow slow
anyone know if you can put stock android onto these ones or have they fixed it so you can't?

Yes it is ...
I have two of the previous gen. They work good for watching the occasional flick. But it is quite slow. How much of an improvement is this new version?

I love that comparison
These are the newest version. 7th gen.

The ones in the other offer are 5th gen I think.

These can't, to the best of my knowledge, be rooted yet.

I have 3 for the kids. I'm happy enough to have got the Play store on them.

I paid more than this for mine.

Yup, if you look online you should find a tutorial. I can confirm it works but disclaimer: it's a bit slow at times (as expected). I also only use it for YouTube and Showbox.
Excellent been waiting for them to drop to this price,ordered for the little ones birthday!

7th gen looks very different to the one here for £29.99. This one is definitely 5th gen. Other offer was for used ones under £26. This one is new for £29.99.

If I bought a case and already have à subscription to kids unlimited can someone please tell me, would this then be the same as the children's version?
Just returned my Warehouse Deal which was the 5th gen for £26 and ordered this.
Temper your expectations. These have a terrible screen and are pretty slow. Great throwaway tablet for a young child but not good for your daily driver.

Seconded. Bought one in the Christmas sales for my toddler to watch youtube on - couldn't even handle that :-( At least at this price if you give up on it, you can sell it on ebay for close to the same price.

Apart from the generous replacement warranty that they provide with the kids one, I would think yes.
19.99 if you're an Amazon student member and use the code STUDENT10
With current reductions spend the extra and get the HD version. They handle basic tasks well enough, for the price don't see what all the hate is about.

do you know if this code can only be used once please
How does this compare with the Fire 7 ( which is more expensive)?
Is this one inferior because it has Alexa?
Can anyone please confirm if this has GPS? Looking for something to use as cheap satnav with Navmii but need GPS confirmation
This price makes all the rest a total rip off.

You don't have to root it at all, just enable unknown sources third party installs in the settings. Download the apk from the website via the browser.

Yes, once per account.
You can install the Google play store on these tablets. You can even install a new launcher. Just be aware that it is a little buggy in as much as you see the original home screen for a fraction of a second when you press home.

The only difference I really see to the 2015 model is the screen is a little brighter and the tablet is lighter. It's not a great difference really. It has the same SOC / RAM and flash storage. It's a shame you can't root these to install a custom ROM like with the 2015 model prior to 5.3.3.
Wait so can you install a custom Rom or not? there's conflicting answers in this thread!

No, it's not been figured out (yet). You could, with the previous version. But you can still install the play store.
