The Amazon Fire certainly isn’t a great tablet, or even an average one, but for $50 dollars it has a lot to offer.  It’s surprisingly swift if you manage apps approriately, and is great for streaming video, browsing the web, and email.

Prime members certainly get more out of the Fire, and it’s also great for kids as its cheap, and it comes with a no-questions asked warranty. Just make sure to enable a child profiles first.

The Fire is a simple and very Amazon-oriented tablet, and neither of these are bad things.  With an upgraded camera and better display this would be a no-brainer for any user. Even without these, users, especially Prime members itching for a tablet, won’t regret spending $50 on the Fire.


  • Ridiculously cheap
  • Great for Prime Users
  • Efficient battery


  • Bogs down a bit too easily
  • Useless cameras
  • Cheap build
