It actually has Chrome as an alternative browser, and one can install the Playstore without rooting, which makes it much more versatile.

Mar says:

I need something that can support a pen to write on the screen. can it do that? why does nobody really do that anymore.. having a pen to take notes or make quick drawings or write down mathematical formula or to scribble stuff or just for interacting with the touch screen more precisely and without leaving fingerprints make sense to me. apparently nobody else cares.

Update, it’s rubbish. Keeps constantly saying no wifi network found when my phone and laptop are both working fine on wifi.

rollerblading geek says:

I just bought this recently. It’s useful for the internet, Kindle, or social media. And watching downloaded videos on the go.
Alexa is useless though.

I have the old one, I basically just use it to view my calendar (use it as a diary) and if my phone runs out of battery.

Great video as always. Might not be the longest or the most in depth but it hits all the key points. Keep it up. I know this comment might get lost in them all but i hope it brightens your day a bit, you chap.

Do you think Amazon would ever try a phone again? Alexa is such a well-liked assistant.

GotUrAnkles122 says:

I have one and its amazing

Ryan Barclay says:

Hey tom
Very well structured review
Definitely a good buy for those who need a simple tablet, does it still offer the 24/7 live customer chat ?
Shame about the lack of processor speed and at least one front facing speaker
Have a great day

Hidde 345 says:

You can get the play store on it to

Christopher Tilley says:

I agree that for £50 it’s a good deal, especially if you’re a heavy user of Amazon services. But, is it better than the other £50 tablets that Argos sells? I don’t think so. I’d rather have one of them and load the Amazon apps I use onto it.
