Amazon 7-inch Fire tablet vs digiland 7 inch tablet

msavy11 328 25 August 30, 2016 at 06:55 AM
we have a digiland 7 inch tablet since Christmas and have had no complaints for my child playing videos and simple games. The screen cracked so I'm looking to replace it. With the high failure rate I'm hesitant to replace it with another digiland.

for comparison's sake
Kindle Fire 7" display 8 gb. Model # is sv98ln Fire OS 5 "bellini*
I'm considering buying this used. $30

thoughts?
Thanks

I have never had a Digiland tablet, but I do have the Amazon Fire 7" and like it very much...no problems.

Keep in mind that only about one-half of the 8GB is usable for downloads as the OS takes up the other half.

I suggest getting a 32GB microSD card for the Kindle.

You can add the Google Play Store...

Here is a Youtube video explaining an easy way:

Just do one step, pause the video, then repeat.

The Kindle will be of a much higher build quality. I am not a fan of the Amazon silliness that has been done to Android, but much of it can be fixed. Even if it is just sideloading the google app store.

The Kindle is much nicer if you are a Prime member, then you get music, movies, ebooks, etc for free (some).

I log in using my daughter's account. nod

But I log into Google using my acct...the best of both worlds!

If you're concerned with it breaking perhaps a Kindle Fire "Kids" edition with 2 year unlimited warranty would be best for $99.

Or at least buy a new Fire direct from Amazon for $49.99 - I wouldn't trust a used tablet without a serious return/warranty backing it up.

The 'kids' edition goes on sale sometimes for $70.
