Which Should You Buy

First off, you shouldn’t go for the Fire 7 tablet, except you’re on a budget, of course. The Fire 7 tablet is underpowered and the small screen (7-inch) doesn’t help out either. If you are going to get an Amazon tablet, we recommend that you go for the newer models; the Fire HD 8, and Fire HD 10 tablets. They both offer a lot more when compared to the Fire 7 tablet.
