    So who owns the Fire tablet? I'm pretty sure I saw battlescribe installed on it. Is someone at LMG a miniature war gamer?

      A tablet like this works well when the only thing that you use it for is entering some numbers into a spreadsheet report/form at the end of the work day and then upload it to a company server or dropbox account.

        3:41 You know that "AmAzOnS OS" is actually Android.

          Fire OS is based on Android but does not have the purity of Android.

        it's really easy to get the play store on the fire and it doesn't require root. And yeah, get the hd 8, and even wait until black friday when it's $50 (or maybe even $28 used like I just got on prime day).

                  What makes an iPad better though, besides the usual Apple arguments? Because I'd honestly rather use android as my main desktop OS than i/iPadOs on its intended hardware.

                    Advice, after opening a cheap tablet from wall mart, take it to the trash can and toss the tablet in it.

                      I would root the Amazon tablet and delete the unneeded apps and download the google play store.

                        @Ulfrinn ok I thought you were talking about something else yes I use twrp as a custom recovery to flash a rom on my device or too root the device too.

                        @Hull Pop yeah.. generally before you flash anything to an android device you'll install a graphical recovery layer like clockword mod or TWRP which makes fixes even easier

                        @Hull Pop its a debugging mode that lets you access an ADB command line interface and push things like ROMs to flash and recover an otherwise "bricked" device

                            1:05 If anyone did that to me and was my employee, I would fire them.
                            If they weren't, I would make my own company, hire them, just so I can fire them.

                                So every once in awhile, Amazon has a $99 sale on its Fire HD10. Look for that on Prime Day. And there is a 5-step procedure to install Google Play store on the Amazon devices, after which you can obtain the limited selection from Amazon or the broad and deep offerings thru Google Play. AND the microSD slot holds my 256GB card, on which many apps can be installed. AND it is likely that Amazon will support and update their Android tablets longer than Samsung and other vendors, because Amazon uses the device as a vehicle to promote and sell other very lucrative products and services. SO what's not to like?

                                  There is a problem that you could not test but happens WAY too often. The Onn has the same problem as the RCA tablets Wal Mart sold. The Battery Balloons up after about a month or two of use. To the point that one night you go to bed and the next morning you have a deployed air bag with the back cover completely taken off.

                                      Wally Tablet has 2Gigs DDR3 RAM and dual band WiFi, and the everyday experience is not that bad...BUT No OTG is a Dealbreaker.

                                                  You can install google services and Playstore on Amazon tablets. That is the only side loading you have to do, then you just use the playstore.

                                                    They just figured out how to root my 2017 Fire 7 so i did that and now run AOSP with minimal apps. They also figured out how to root the 2017 Fire 10 and the 2019 and 2015 Fire 7, I think the Fire 8 is also rootable so no real reason to pick the Onn.

I even put one in my vehicle for my stereo/deck and have obd2 BT unit it connects with. Speakers aren't the best ;but battery life is decent and I have headphones and in my vehicle sound is through the vehicle speakers so no biggie.

                                                          I really want a tablet, but they're all such heaps of 3 year old shit. I would pay $700NZD, about 465 USD for a good tablet. But all we get are 200 dollar plastic shitbricks with the chargers ontop and ofset to the left by 2cm and 1 tinny(as in tin) speaker.

                                                            Watch movies on a tablet?... never. Not with my 4K TV and Surround Receiver. Listen to music on the built in speakers, no way, not even with the best tablet. Take pictures with my tablet? Not doing that either. I'll either use my still camera for quality or my phone for convenience. I'm getting a tablet to run things like the Remote App for my surround receiver, or the Smart TV App for my 4K TV, or the Remote App for my Panasonic HC-X1000 video camera, or as a Bluetooth source for podcasts and music. And frankly, I wouldn't mess with the 10" due to the bulk. The 8" Onn tablet for $65 fits the bill "good enough" for all the uses I mentioned. And no way I would choose the Amazon option with all their proprietary bloat.
