Amazon Fire 7 Review: Cheapest. That’s the first word that strikes our mind when we imagine the Amazon Fire 7 (2024) – and at a price of just $50/£50 (around AU$70), that’s precisely what it is.

The tablet has targeted those customers who are budget-conscious yet looking for a tablet to read a book, sometimes watch YouTube videos, and do a little online shopping.

Amazon had to compromise on certain features and the outcome is a reasonably priced tablet that’s ideal for someone looking for a nice reading experience.


  • Affordable
  • Increased storage options
  • Includes hands-free Alexa
