Hands on: Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition review

fire 7 kids edition review

Audio The audio from the Fire 7 Kids Edition is very tinny. The 8-inch model has a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, which comes out at 189ppi. Just keep in mind that FreeTime books and apps can be downloaded to the device for offline use, but FreeTime videos require a Wi-Fi connection. There are games and episodes from most of the major kids' shows, including Doc McStuffins, Paw Patrol, P. If you turn off the Smart Filters, the child still won't have access to everything, just content that's appropriate for kids ages 2 to 13.

What’s the Difference Between the Fire 7, 8, and 10 Tablets?

I had to turn the volume down to about 60 percent at times, or else the low sounds were distorted. All trademarks and product names are the property of their respective owners. You can also limit total screen time, or break down the limits by activity. I had better luck with the swipe-to-type feature. You can also set education goals to be met daily, and if you check a box, all entertainment content will be blocked until those daily goals are met. The Kids Edition costs significantly more than the otherwise identical standard version.

Still, if you just want to block a child from using the open internet and have them consume only age-appropriate content from FreeTime Unlimited, it's easy to set that up. That makes it one of the most affordable tablets you'll find and it's a perfect tablet for those who might break it, like kids - although do also consider the Fire Kids Edition too. And so, along comes Amazon with what looks like the perfect solution, the Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition. So if you're going on vacation without Wi-Fi, transfer everything you need to first. The Fire 7 Kids Edition measures 8. The other devices have to be on charge for this feature.

Best Amazon Fire tablets: Fire 7 vs Fire HD 8 vs Fire HD 10

This is quite a bit sharper than both the smaller tablets as well as giving you 2 inches more on the diagonal. The dual band WiFi will ensure that the tablet makes the most of your broadband connection when downloading content. The Fire 7's screen is quite bright for an ultra-low-cost tablet, and although it has a bit of a blue tint to the whites, that didn't bother me in video playback. You can moderate the color balance using a built-in software blue light filter. Parental Controls The parental controls for the Child profiles are quite robust, but if you want to create custom rules, the number of options can be overwhelming. Propping up the tablet on something soft, like a couch cushion or a bed, severely limits the sound that can escape from the openings in the foam case, and the sound gets muffled.

Parents may find themselves helping kids to delete stuff so they can download new content. At full volume, many sounds are distorted, so I wouldn't recommend putting it louder than 75 percent. The case can be taken off and put back on without too much trouble -- an important consideration if you have a particularly destructive child. You can also set off an alarm, lock the device or do a factory reset if you have Find Your Tablet enabled in the settings. However, I was surprised to discover that I couldn't add or take away items if I wasn't connected to Wi-Fi, even though the items had already been downloaded to the device.

Some of the many popular shows represented in FreeTime are Doc McStuffins, Sesame Street, Bubble Guppies, Umizoomi, Paw Patrol and P. Of course, you can always go to the mobile sites, but it isn't the same. You'll want to use headphones, whether wired or Bluetooth, to watch those movies. The Child profile's home screen is locked horizontally, while the Teen profile home screen can be viewed horizontally or vertically. It's easy to hit two keys at one time, and occasionally three, but it's not meant for a lot of typing. While the basic parental controls are very easy to set up, I got a bit confused as I got deeper into the settings. It may be just a few moments, or a few hours.

There's so much content here that you should never need to buy any. Design The first thing you notice about the Fire 7 Kids Edition is the bright rubber bumper case that it comes with. The Adult home screen is divided into categories: Books, Video, Games, Shop, Apps, Music, Audible, and Newsstand. Small text looks pixelated and some magazine pages look cramped on the Fire 7's display. The current Fire 7 is a small tablet with big bezels clad in a matte plastic housing in colorful black, blue, red, or yellow. You'll probably get considerably longer usage time in Amazon's own apps or Netflix, as the browser on the Fire tablets uses a lot of juice.

But with three tablets in the offering, there is a decision to be made about which tablet best suits your needs. You can add a photo if you choose. It also comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Fire for Kids Unlimited, which provides access to child-friendly books, videos, apps, games and audiobooks. You get more power, much more space to play with a sharper display, as well as battery life that will see you through most long flights. If you're just setting up the Fire 7 Kids Edition for a child to use, it's much easier than trying to prohibit certain things for a child while allowing them for the adult profiles. All of the profiles' Home screens are divided into categories that you can swipe through. If you have any of the parental controls switched on, Alexa is automatically switched off for everyone who uses the device.

When you first tap on a book, app, or video icon, give it time to download to the tablet. Check back for our lab-test results soon, and take a look at our other. He's the head of our Fastest Mobile Networks project, hosts our One Cool Thing daily Web show, and writes opinions on tech and society. Conclusions Yes, there are other out there. That's far below the category average of 2,728, but much better than the Fire 7 Kids Edition, which notched 1,174. I don't understand why it couldn't just be disabled on Child profiles -- especially since it's not voice-activated, so a child could not accidentally activate it from across the room. The Immediate Differences: Screens and Storage First, the primary and most immediately noticeable difference is the size.
