Amazon Review by G.Hulse :star::star::star::star::star:

This is a steal for $50 as long as you aren;t expecting a "Premium" experience.

I pre-ordered this for my wife mostly to use as a Kindle E-reader as I figured the tablet would be slow and the display would be less than impressive. I was wrong. What a bargain this little beauty is! This model cost $49.00 but it comes with ad's displayed on the lock screen when your tablet is dormant. Once your screen times out, they disappear. You can pay $15.00 up front to get an ad free version so I assumed to unlock the tablet I'd have to spend 15 to 30 seconds looking at an ad for Amazon Prime, or a product from the daily specials section of Amazon.com I abstained from paying for Ad removal and was pleasantly surprised to find that the ads are only on the lock screen and that as soon as I unlock the tablet they disappear immediately.

Here are my pros and cons thus far.
PRO:
Perfect size for Ebooks, and web surfing to alleviate strain on the eyes from my 5" phone display
nice sturdy casing that gives it a nice heft but still weighs in as one of the lighter tablets on the market

Child Accounts- Amazon allows you to set up this tablet with age restricted access for kids making this a low cost piece of tech that is perfect for school kids and allows mom and dad to ration the amount of time lil Johnny can play Clash of Clans and how much he can hit the ol’ Visa card for.

Battery life thus far; wife was on it for about 5 hours last night and battery was at about 46%

Kindle Integration -this goes without saying but having my ebooks and audible books synced to the tablet is awesome and my Kindle books look great

Price - it’s a $50.00 tablet that looks and performs as well as ipad mini gen1

CON:
Screen resolution - if you’re looking for a premium screen res on par with your latest smart phone or HD tablet look elsewhere. I’d say the resolution is on par with an Iphone 3G or the original Kindle Fire gen 1

Web browser
The built in “Silk” web browser isn’t very nice and the interface is reminiscent of IE on mobile devices. I searched the APP store for Google Chrome or fire fox but apparently those aren’t available.

Camera
This has a camera in the strictest sense but it’s 2MP camera is slow to load and it’s nowhere near on par with the 10MP most mobile devices are boasting these days

The weak ass speaker
OK. So I wasn’t expecting a Bose sound out of this thing but the on board speaker is just not very good. Poor sound quality, and weak. My wife was attempting to listen to our Amazon Music library the other night and was underwhelmed with the quality. I haven’t attempted this yet, but I’ll be paring this to our SONOS bar or my Bluetooth headphones for music or ebooks.

SO there you have it. Despite some of the flaws in the design this is just a fantastic deal for $50.00. SO much so that I ordered a second one for myself and plan on purchasing a 6 pack as Holiday Presents next month for my nieces and nephews. If you are new to tech and want to familiarize yourself without spending a heft sum to get into the game, or if you’re looking for a durable yet inexpensive piece of tech for your kids, or if you LOVE e-books then this is the unit for you.

Best Buy Review by ninjatek :star::star::star::star::star:

Amazing little tablet... even more amazing price!

Don't let the 8GB prevent you from buying this Amazon tablet! Once you insert a Micro SD card, the tablet literally saves everything to the Micro SD. Be sure to get a screen protector if you plan on letting little kids play with it because the screen isn't as scratch resistant as an iPad or a Samsung Galaxy Tab. For Forty bucks, you just can't find a better value and with Amazon Underground, you can get a bunch of free apps which also include free in-app purchases... yup all the coins and tokens and gems and whatever else you want for free! Note that this thing comes with ads... but they only appear on the lock-screen and actually aren't that bad. They are nicely designed and don't make your lock screen look janky. Other than that, you'll want to have a PRIME membership so you can take advantage of the PRIME videos and what not. I recommend getting at least 32GB Micro SD (I believe it supports up to 128GB) to store pictures, videos, music etc... obviously get a larger capacity card if you're a download junkie.

The pictures it takes are OK… good enough for viewing on a screen, but don’t expect to be printing high quality pics with them.

Screen quality is pretty good… not sharp and crisp like a Retina screen, but I was able to read my Kindle books just fine. The viewing angle is also decent and won’t make you feel cross-eyed like some cheaper tablets out there.

Battery Life is very good on this tiny tablet… something like 4-5 hours with normal use. Videos and Games will probably drain the battery faster than anything else, but it runs every game I’ve thrown at it so far.

If you have kids, the Free-Time app is very cool… you have to pay a small subscription (like 2 bucks a month or something with PRIME) but it gives the kids access to a whole bunch of curated content, games, movies etc. just for the little ones so they don’t mess with other apps or get into things your stuff.

Well, that’s all I can think of… this is a great little tablet of pretty good build and quality… if you’re paranoid about scratches and dents get a case and screen protector and you’re golden.
