This affordable tablet is a great content delivery system for Amazon but is beaten in most other areas by rival devices at similar price points. Average build quality belies decent internal specifications and impressive stereo sound.
While it's relatively easy to recommend the HD 6 at £79 or £99, it's significantly harder to like the HD 7 at £119 or £139. For £129, Tesco's larger Hudl 2 is a much better deal, even if you're buying it for your kids.
The Fire HD 7 is a good window to Amazon's content library, but its storage is too limited for much offline use.
