I am looking to buy an inexpensive tablet for no more than $60. I was wondering if any of the Amazon tabs are worthy of buying? Plz recommend some. I wont be using it too often, mostly for net browsing and watching an occasional movie.

 

TIA

As far as I know there is only one Amazon tablet that meets your price target, the 7 inch Fire. My wife has had one for a few years now but hasn't used it much since we bought her a better specified one two years ago, but it still works so that speaks for their longevity.

 

Unless it has changed they run Amazon's version of Android and it used to have restricted access to Google's PlayStore but that may have changed. I suggest you look at a few reviews on-line.

To my mind, the first thing people should always ask themselves when buying a tablet is- What do I intend using it for?

For example I bought a cheap tablet earlier this year purely for storing and playing videos, but it was a disaster because there were no features to adjust contrast and colour intensity etc, so I had to buy a second tablet at twice the price to get those features, grrrr...

I'm not a tablet expert but if I was you I'd do a google search "What tablet should I buy?" and see what comes up..:)

I had purchased and Amazon Fire for my son about 3 years back and it is still kicking. He play all sorts of games and watch cartoon movies in it. I was was not sure myself when i searched on the internet about what tablet i should buy until i come across an article revglue(.)com/blog-detail/13-setup-free-uk-mobile-comparison-website where i first know about mobile comparison websites. So i searched and found this website gadgetsnow where you can find all sort of gadgets, mobile phones and tablets. you can compare there specs and price or read reviews by existing of the product you liked. I am using Samsung Galaxy Tab A right now but that is way more pricier then Amazon.

I always consider buying low standard products a waste of money, because you will end up buying the right product later when the cheap one stops working.
