I know everyone hates on the Fire HD tablets, but for $20, these are a no-brainer for simple use. They're not for gaming or multitasking at all, but for watching a movie or using Alexa or controlling lights/etc they're perfectly serviceable.

There's a SD slot but if you wanted the 32GB instead of 16GB, it's $27.

Quad-Core: 1.3 GHz, with 1.5 GB of RAM (same as the 8th gen)

edit: use XDA Fire Toolbox to remove ads to speed it up

just turn on show mode. swipe down from the top and toggle it, or, just say "echo, turn on show mode"

ps. seems like the same CPU as all 3 gen shows:
MT8163V/B 4x ARM Cortex-A53
@ 1.3 GHz

pps. you'll want to use bluetooth speakers for music if that's your goal -- the show sounds much better, but this wins on versatility

yes. its very simple. trade in these and buy a echo show for a discount.

I'm not saying you should buy this at all (unless you need something to teach you to slow down and be more Zen) but old tablets make great clocks. There are a bunch of "big clock" apps that will keep the tablet awake as long as it's plugged in. I always set the screen to the lowest brightness setting that permits the numbers to be viewed, otherwise the LCD light makes it too hard (for me) to sleep.

If you yourself can't use this then think about an elderly relative who's eyes ain't so great anymore.

Sorry about the low quality of the pic, which shows either the 7th or 8th gen 8" Amazon tablet.
And for those unaware, getting Play Store onto these is very easy. Lots of simple YouTube step by step guides!
Can be used for a trade in and get $20 gift card and up to 20% off a new tablet.

I could find some uses for these, but honestly it's the micro USB that stops me. I'm making an effort to not buy any more micro USB devices.

haha, I hear ya -- I feel the same way. my solution was to buy a whole bunch of magnetic cables packed with 3 different tips, usb-c, micro usb, & lightning. this way, all my devices are a quick snap away. they're super cheap (like $3 each or something) and work better than normal calles that I'm sure will eventually break.

I have too many devices that will never have usb-c: 3d glasses (8x!), cheap led lights, headphones, tablets, etc.

Quote from LEOMHK1.0 :
IDK about purchasing 7th Gen (refurb) Amazon tablets for the simple reason that I'm almost certain that Amazon took the idea from Apple to remotely slow down products.
I've reset my LO's tablet 3 times and can't even get FreeTime to work after a couple of months and that's all my LO uses.

Fire tablets were never fast to start with.
