The Amazon Fire HD 7 is now at its lowest price for Prime Day, shedding $60 off its normal price tag.
The Fire HD 7 may not be the highest-end tablet out there and it may not be able to completely replace your laptop, but it delivers a surprisingly good performance for its price and category.
As a reminder, the slate sports a 7-inch display with an HD resolution of 1280 x 800, which translates to a pixel density of 216 ppi. Under the hood, the Fire HD 7 packs a quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz and paired with 1GB of RAM, enabling fluid graphics, quick app launches and a fast performance overall.
"Powerful, full-featured Fire HD tablet-with beautiful 7" HD display, 2x faster quad-core processer, dual speakers with Dolby Audio, and unsurpassed durability in its class," Amazon boasts in the product description.
The tablet further features an HD camera on its rear, a VGA front shooter, and either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage capacity. With the Amazon Fire HD 7, users also get access to more than 33 million movies, songs, books, TV shows, Android apps and games, as well as free unlimited cloud storage for their entire library of Amazon content and photos taken with Fire devices. Users can also create personal profiles and link two Amazon accounts so they can share books, apps and more.
Dual stereo speakers and Dolby Audio technology, meanwhile, should deliver a superior audio experience. According to Amazon, its Fire HD 7 is 1.5 times louder than competing tablets under $150.
Amazon Prime Day now brings heavy discounts to various devices for one day only, July 15, and the Fire HD 7 is among the greatest deals. The 8GB version of the tablet now costs just $79, down from its regular price tag of $139, while the higher-capacity 16GB model now retails for just $99 instead of $159. As usual, Prime Day deals are available for Amazon Prime members. If you're not already a Prime member, you can sign up to enjoy a free 30-day trial of the service. Should you decide to keep using Amazon Prime, the service will cost $99 per year once the free trial has expired.
