Engadget Review

The Fire 7 is the most affordable tablet in Amazon’s lineup but, unfortunately, you get what you pay for. Yes, it does have hands-free Alexa and there’s more storage on the newer Fire 7 than earlier models. But the performance is dismal, the display is lackluster and the battery life barely lasts a whole day. You would be much better off saving a few extra dollars and getting the Fire HD 8.
