The Cheap Amazon Fire Kindle Tablets



I've been using a Fire Kindle 5th Gen tablet as a spare tablet (my Samsung is elsewhere) for a while, and honestly, even though it is slow at times it's really good.

That is, provided you'll use it to watch videos, read books, listen to music and browse the web. Some games run fine on it, too, like SONIC CD (it was free on Amazon Underground) so it gets entertainment solved for most.

Overall, I'd give it 4/5.

Oh yeah, three tips:

- If you want to use Developer Options, open Settings, go to Device, press Serial Number several times and then it'll appear. Why? It has useful features.

- The ads can be removed free of charge from the tablet (they shouldn't even be there to begin with), kindly ask Amazon to remove them and then it's a lot nicer.

- You can install the Google Play Store on your Fire Kindle, check it out here: https://www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/

Much as Amazon tries with their app store, it's nowhere near good to the Google App Store.

I use mine to watch Netflix and to play Spotify mostly. I really like it and the price is very good. It's 4 years old now and the battery is still good which I'm surprised by.

The battery on the Fire Kindle is way better than it is on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. It's like the battery has dried up and runs too quickly, so by 30% it's basically the end (and reboots by itself).

That isn't an issue for me as I keep most electronics plugged in, anyway.
