The Amazon Fire 7 inherits the smoother, more modern and slimmed-down design of the recent Fire HD 8 and HD 10 tablets. The 7in screen is better in the flesh than it might seem on paper but it is not HD and pales in comparison to higher-priced competition. It is fine for casual watching of TV shows and movies but it doesn’t have automatic brightness adjustment, so you’ll need to manually turn it down at night or up in bright light.
The mono speaker sounds surprisingly good for personal watching but is a bit too quiet to overcome the noise of cooking in a kitchen or similar. There’s a headphone jack in the top for wired listening but the tablet supports Bluetooth 5 and should work with any wireless headphones you have.
