Good find, op. I have the fire tablet and can recommend it, especially at this price.
Tip. If the "special offers" adds that pop up on powering on annoy you, just call CS and complain about the occasional casino adds that appear, and tell them they are not appropriate for minors, and they will remove them.

Not a bad wee tablet


If you wee on it I doubt it'll last very long.
Fyi the 7th generation can not be rooted and you can not install another ROM.
Plus if it comes with latest version of FireOS, you will no longer be able to install play store or remove ads unless you downgrade

Presumably Currys will price match so that could be a quicker way to get the item and also get cashback from ... somewhere.
Bought the HD8 at Christmas from Argos when it was a ridiculous price. Think after a voucher code & £5 topcashback it came in at £39.99.

It's a great tablet. Worth the price above. Play install very easy too.

You need to download it along with 3 (?) other APK files and "side load" it.

Google it and see what XDA developers do... I did it, tool about 10 mins.

Got the hd 8 2017 refurb from amazon, awful tablet with bad screen bleeding and the battery was non exsistent. Returned it and had a nightmare being passed from pillar to post by them. Gone back to my old faitfhul nexus 7 2013.

Anyone remember how much this was on black Friday?
Bought one last time, it is too slow for even just watching YouTube. Don’t buy it if you are not a patient person
SOunds like there is no way to output ot a bigger screen, they dont have HDMI anymore and you cant cast either. also the lack of any Google apps is putting me off, even at this price.
I have a fire 7 and I find it really slow if I'm doing anything other than reading a book. Would hd 8 be a significant improvement over it or are they very much similar?
The 7 is a bit slow and when you are not using it, you need to turn it completely off as standby drains the battery quickly(less than 12hours). The Fire 10 is a lot faster than the 7 but still slower than an iPad mini 2. (Still need to completely turn off the fire 10 too)

Is 8gb actually usable with this device?

My boss has a Moto G with 8gb of memory, and by the time it's got about 3 apps installed, it tells him that memory is low, and it will impact phone performance.

I don't know how this will work with some of the games that are 200mb plus?

We got the 10 as the 7 was too slow to play kids games. The 10 plays them all fine.

This YT looks familiar -

Which google apps? I got a Fire 10 in the sale the other week and I installed google play no problem, not found any apps that don't work on the Fire specifically. I've not heard that the 7 or 8 are any different, especially since they're both older models.

My only issue I had with it was a small amount of backlight bleed. It wasn't enough to really bother me though, especially at the price I paid.

You can add a memory card to extend the memory.

My issue is i got the Fire 7 Kid for my son 2 years ago (8GB) would fill up within 24h so had to buy a memory card. now this works out on but the machine seem to be saving files on the device that i cannot delete it now has 2GB of file on it that i cannot delete. so the fire 7 has only got around 100-200MB of free space. only way i have found to fix this is to wipe the device it self. (have to do this around every 7 months (my son only relay uses it for youtube. and used to use SkyGo/SKykids)

I have recently upgraded both my sons old Samsung tab 2's to the 7's are i am very impressed my boys love em secret is DON'T sign into account and have all amazon bloat enabled i have done this with both tablets installed nova launcher over it and used app to make it default and they are brill!!!
Youtube and few games works great....My boy plays pixel gun and youtube and no complaints and believe me their favorite word LAG would get mentioned quite quickly. I bought one off ebay for £37 and one off Amazon refurb £35 MINT condition by the way and for the cash these are great!!You just have to read up on best optimization

Just been reading the reviews, it seems that the 10 is slightly different
I bought mine exclusively for watching stuff on planes. It works just fine for that I don't really do anything else on it.

Not without removing as much amazon bloatware as you can or wiping it totally with a different rom. We ended up flogging ours for £30 on facebook (paid less for it in sale lol) as the kids prefered the iPad minis almost every time.
Only benefit I found was the free games and apps from amazon-underground.

Cant be done on latest update im afraid!!! No rom available and to rewind the version back would more likely end up bricking it, believe me i have done extensive research over on XDA develop and there is nothing for 7th gen at moment Amazon are very good at updating to keep the rom developers at bay. As it a exclusive amazon product its in their best interest

I don't see why, if anything the 10 could be on a newer version of Fire OS that could have blocked google play since the 7th Gen 10 only came out last Autumn.

I feel like the bigger issue would be some apps just might not run on a 7 or 8 due to the worse processor.

i dont turn my hd10 off - works fine for me. for the price, these tablets are great value. not the fastest or bestest, but much better price/value than many others out there.
Do Tesco’s normally price match amazon for fire tablets?
I got the 2017 7 inch tablet and it's amazing for what you pay for it. The screen resolution isn't amazing however they used some technique to make it look much better. It looks and feels way better than you would expect.
I would happily get another one for the kids. It does everything once you get playstore on it and blows anything else at that price out of the water.

Yes. Everyone 'matches' the price.

Only it isn't really price matching, it is price fixing. Amazon dictates the maximum price.
