This is an affordable tablet that’s great for those on a budget. It’s not the fastest and the quality of movies and TV shows won’t blow you away but with robust parental controls and Alex built-in, it’s a great buy.

GHI Expert Verdict

Looking for a basic tablet that won’t break the bank? The latest version of the Fire 7, Amazon’s most affordable tablet, is now better value. It has double the amount of storage space than the previous version and now lets you summon Alexa with your voice, rather pressing a button but it’s still just £49.99.
