Advantages of an Amazon tablet

Although the design is not one of the strengths of these Amazon tablets, the truth is that its finish is very robust and reliable. Although the screen frames are thick, plastic materials with a quite remarkable thickness have been used. Something interesting if you have little ones at home who usually give them the odd blow.

Another advantage also has to do with its design, and is that, compared to other models that opt ​​for 10 "screens, Amazon has limited themselves to mounting 7 or 8" panels, which gives them a screen with a considerable space, but without being too bulky. Therefore, they are models very compact that you can store almost anywhere or carry them from one place to another without too much weight.

Of course, you also have to highlight your price, which is another of its strengths. You will not find too many tablets on the market for those prices that offer something similar to these.
