Amazon Fire Tablet 7 Review

Updated: 6 February, 2020 seen 24

I ordered Amazon Fire Tablet 7 at the end of 2019 as a Christmas gift to our almost 18-month old baby girl. It took some two weeks before the gadget was actually delivered to us here in Georgia. 

I wanted to have something cheap enough it wouldn't be sad if the baby would drop or broke and also something smart enough to use Alexa with. I've been a huge fan of the Amazon Echo device since August 2019.

Now was time to unpack and see what's inside.

It took some time to configure Fire 7 tablet to connect to our home WIFI network,but nothing complicated

Engineered and tested by Amazon, Fire 7 is our best-selling tablet—now 2X the storage, faster quad-core processor, hands-free with Alexa, and 2X as durable as the latest iPad mini. Complete tasks, enjoy movies on the go, browse recipes, or ask Alexa for the weather—making your every day easier.

The Bottom Line

It took some two days and baby girl already started to explore tablet on her own. I downloaded some learning apps (Kidloland) and we were good to go. The cheap price and actually quite durable frame - make it a good app for toddler kids.
