Amazon has done it again with its ultra-affordable Fire 7 tablet. This compact 7-inch tablet delivers surprisingly solid performance and features.

The Fire 7 sports a vibrant 7-inch IPS display with decent 1024×600 resolution. Its plastic body feels comfortable and durable. 

Quad-core processing power keeps things running smoothly for basic tasks. And the 2980mAh battery lasts around 7 hours per charge.

For capturing photos and videos, a 2MP rear camera and VGA front camera get the job done. 

Though image quality isn't superb, it suffices for occasional shots. 

Smooth video chat is also possible thanks to built-in speakers and microphone.

The real feats are Fire 7's affordable price coupled with useful functionality. 

Parents can easily set up parental controls to manage their kids' access. 

MicroSD expansion allows up to 256GB of extra storage space for apps, games, photos and other files.

What's more, the tablet comes loaded with Amazon apps and services. 

Streaming shows on PrimeVideo or reading Kindle ebooks both work great. 

Alexa voice assistant integration makes it easy to get news updates, control smart home devices and more using natural voice commands.

Of course, there are some tradeoffs given the bargain price. The dated Android 5.1 operating system doesn’t support Google Play Store or Google Apps out of the box. 

And occasional lags might frustrate impatient users trying to rapidly switch between lots of apps at once. 

Most shoppers will be amazed at what Amazon’s plucky little Fire tablet can handle.

So if you’re seeking an ultra-budget friendly tablet for yourself or the kids, the Fire 7 is tough to beat. 

Amazon cut zero corners crafting this mini-marvel. For casual use like web browsing, streaming video, reading and light gaming, the Fire 7 punches way above its weight given the tiny price tag. 

This feat of engineering won’t replace high-end iPads or Galaxy Tabs, but it doesn’t need to for basic daily use.
