I ordered 2 of these tablets, one 8gb ( a gift for my father) and one 16gb for myself. I have owned several tablets, mostly android, but also an ipad. I have not owned a kindle fire, but i used one. This tablet is by far the best of the lot. I only have one complaint, but ill get to that later. It is fast as all get out. It is light, and easy to handle with one hand. It doesn't come overly burdened with bloat software. The price is amazing, especially when you add in the 25$ play store credit. The screen is impeccable, and the volume of video and audio playback really blew me away. There is no internal storage, so for me i would prefer the 16gb version, however realistically 8gb is plenty if you use any kind of cloud service, ie dropbox. You can stream off of most of these services without the need of putting it on the device, or you can download when needed, (for flights and suck) you can even use external hard drives and usb storage if you know how. Also the tablet comes only being able to be viewed in portrait mode, no landscape. However this is easily fixed by downloading an app from the play-store like (ultimate rotation control) this allows you to view the tablet however you want. Some people complain about the lack of a camera on the back, but for me i have never really used a tablet as a camera, as it is really just not practical. I have a cell phone that takes amazing pictures, and is far more convenient to hold a small phone than a big tablet up. This thing reads really well also, i love both the kendel app and the google books app, (a little tip, change to night mode, this makes reading much more pleasurable on any tablet).
So lets go with pro's and con's
Fastest tablet i have ever used / Very snappy / Extremely good audio / Video playback is very nice, very clear / multitasking is a breeze / Very light, and easy to manage with one hand / has a great lether feal to the back, that grips well / perfect size for reading / Great price / 25$ google play credit / free movie
No expansion on storage and only 2 options for this (this is easily fixed with a cloud storage, or an external hard drive of some sort) / portrait only viewing (also easily fixed with an app)
Other than this i really cant think of anything. This tab is top notch.
I have included 2 pics one in portrait and one in landscape, just to verify 1. it can be done 2. i actually have the tablet and am not someone just rambling about something i don't even have.
