Wouldn't hesitate to buy another or the larger one.
Bought it with very low expectations for the price.
Fired it up (ahem) and this looks ok, wait, that swipe was very smooth, so was that one,
Quickly put play store on the tab for apps the Amazon app store doesn't have and away I went.
The Room trilogy.
All ran perfect, smooth, vibrant screen.
Silk and chrome browsers
All ran perfectly as they should.
Everything just works, I can't stress how suprised I was with this cheap 32gb tablet.
Micro SD upto 256gb and this tab allows your apps and games photos downloads to install straight to the micro SD card keeping your tab storage freed up.
Very smooth, very responsive. Great wifi signal.
Screen is clear, speakers are ok, stereo speakers is a nice touch and Is a plus point for movies. Not the loudest but ok, headphones cure that issue.
Cameras not brilliant there ok for normal shots , ok for Skype, but your not looking here for a top end iPad camera.
This really does perform like a tablet twice the price, I come from a technical background and know plenty about these devices.
It plays games great, it's does movies great proves you don't need to spend a lot of money on a tablet to get great performance.
Build quality I have to say it's built to take a beating, very tough and hard wearing.
As a product in itself I think this is a pretty decent tablet for many reasons (which I wont go into in this small review/comment). I have however had to remove one star from my rating for the following reason. Almost everything I had intended to use it for does not work due to lack of software support for this specific device. The most annoying part about that though was how I was mislead by certain reviews on Amazon's related App product pages. For example, my primary motivation for wanting a tablet computer was to watch anime via the Crunchyroll App. Now bear in mind I first checked that this was indeed available via Amazon's own App Store, and read the reviews where I found people testifying that the Crunchyroll App now worked with Kindle Fire. Unfortunately to my dismay it doesn't, and won't even allow you to download it and try (which the staff at Crunchyroll had suggested to me). This sadly has been the kind of experience replicated with almost every App I had initially bought the Kindle Fire for, but as I say, that does not detract from what a good device it actually is. I am just hoping that they will sort out whatever dispute they have with Android (or Google, whom I believe are the parent company and main problem here) so that all Apps which work on every other tablet device available could work on the Kindle Fire too.
Anyway, my general advice to anyone thinking of purchasing a Kindle Fire is to first try and ensure functionality of any Apps they feel will be a definite requirement for them. Otherwise they may end up feeling rather disappointed. I would also suggest they do this via checking with friends whom already own one, because in my experience you simply cant trust the fact that Amazon has an App listed for it, nor any associated reviews of said App.
Since writing the above I have discovered a simple way to make the Kindle Fire run the Google app store, so this has solved all the aforementioned problems. It only takes two minutes to do and does not violate the warranty (as far as I can tell), nor damage the device's operating system in any way, as merely involves the installation of a program (Google app store). Nevertheless, I assume it would be frowned upon if I provided further info on that, so will just say that websites catering for this purpose are pretty easy to find. Just avoid any methods which involve doing more than simply installing the aforementioned program (which comes in four separate parts). Then it will work perfectly with full access to the apps/games you want. Just how it always should have been in my opinion without any corporate nonsense of rival companies getting in the way of the users experience.
Some apps aren't available on it and am not sure why.
It did suddenly decide to go into safe mode a couple of days ago, for no apparent reason, but found a fix online.
I wish the camera was a little better, just a bit of a shock from using my Nokia Lumia 1020 with a 40 megapixel camera on board. ;)
