Amazon is an e-commerce business. Its products include several mobile devices. They do not differ in the presence of functional filling, but they are quality products. In this review, we will tell you about one such gadget. This is an inexpensive, budget tablet that hit the market late last year. Thanks to him, any user can access the Amazon world.
Appearance and characteristics
The Amazon Fire 7 tablet case is manufactured using only plastic. It is of average workmanship. By touch, you can immediately understand that this material does not belong to the category of high-class. In addition, some users have complained about poor lid fixation. Otherwise, everything is fine here.
One of the main advantages of the design is the small weight of the product. Only 295 grams. Along with the acceptable dimensions (192 ? 115 ? 9.6 mm), this simplifies the work with the device. One hand is enough for this.
The device received a 7-inch touch screen with a resolution of 1240 ? 600 pixels, with a pixel density of 171 ppi and an aspect ratio of 16: 9. It is the smallest in the line and this also has its advantages. Fire 7 can be tucked into a coat or jacket pocket if needed.
The manufacturer has an original approach to the placement of buttons and connectors of the gadget. All of them are located on its upper end.
It's easy to find a 3.5mm headphone jack, Micro-USB port, power button and volume rocker here. It is not clear why the developers abandoned the more modern USB-C connector, which is now ubiquitous.
On the back of the tablet there is nothing remarkable, except for a single sensor of the main camera with a resolution of 2 megapixels. The second lens located on the front panel has the same parameters.
There is little interesting inside the device. The Amazon Fire 7 is built on a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT8127 quad-core processor, which is too old by modern standards. Together with the chip, 1 GB of RAM and 16/32 GB of internal memory work. Using microSD cards, the latter can be expanded up to 512 GB.
Here wireless communication is provided via Bluetooth, there is Wi-Fi: 802.11n (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz).
In the retail network, Amazon Fire 7 costs about 4000 rubles. For this kind of money, it is difficult to get a functional device with a good screen. The display of this tablet uses a good IPS-matrix. It has good brightness and acceptable contrast, but the low resolution and low pixel density spoils everything.
Therefore, any displayed content on the device screen appears a little blurry. This is especially true for text documents that have minor roughness.
Many users do not pay attention to this, but those who appreciate the clarity and detail of the image should take a closer look at the more expensive models.
Software and performance
Most Amazon Fire 7 users think its software is ambiguous. It is configured to force the tablet owner to use Amazon's services and products.
At the first acquaintance with the device, one gets the impression that advertising is everywhere in it. It is available in all programs and applications. It was not abandoned even on the lock screen. You can turn off ads only by paying a fee of 1000 rubles.
The interface is ideal for those who have an ecosystem of Amazon products. He can instantly use Prime Video, Kindle, Audible, and the Appstore.
The operating system is a modified version of Android. But there is no mention of this, and there is no support for popular services like YouTube, Gmail or the Google Play Store.
The advantage of the software is the presence of the voice assistant Alexa.
The presence of weak hardware does not contribute to the high performance of Fire 7. This is especially noticeable when switching between applications.
This tablet should not be bought for game lovers, they either do not work here or are very slow.
Therefore, the device is only suitable for solving some basic tasks.
Cameras and autonomy
Both cameras of the gadget are rather weak and shoot poorly. The quality of photos and video content is poor. Plus, the main camera has very slow focusing.
The manufacturer claims that the autonomy of the device is seven hours in case of normal use. The owners of such tablets confirm this, on average one charge is enough for two days of work.
The Amazon Fire 7 comes with a charger that takes about two hours to fully charge. Some tablet owners prefer to charge them from a PC or laptop. In this case, the time increases by about 40-50%.
The Amazon Fire 7 tablet is a typical budget-class device. It has virtually no merit, other than cost.
This unit will be an excellent choice for those who cannot imagine their life without Amazon services. It is also not a pity to give it to the child "to be torn apart".
