The Amazon Fire 7 is one of best-value tablets around but Amazon has gone and taken an extra 20% off (opens in new tab) the price. Normally $49.99, the Fire 7 has now dropped to just $39.99 (opens in new tab) – the same epic deal (opens in new tab) that cropped up on Black Friday.  

With a 7-inch IPS touchscreen display, seven hours battery life and dual front and rear cameras, the Fire 7 (opens in new tab) is a top tablet given the rock-bottom price. Amazon doesn't say when the deal will end, so take advantage of it while you can...

Amazon's cheapest tablet is no iPad, but it's also a fraction of the price. It offers a decent 7 hour battery life, a basic 7-inch screen and access streaming apps such as Netflix, Disney+ and, yes, Amazon Prime Video. And all for a penny under $40.

We called the 2017-issue Fire 7 "One of the best tablets out there for those on a tight budget" adding "it’s cheap, cheerful, easy to use and has a lot of the functionality of its more costly counterparts."

Cut to 2021 and the updated Fire 7 improves on its predecessor with a faster 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and 1 GB of RAM, a 2 MP rear-facing camera plus HD 720p front-facing snapper and handsfree Alexa – meaning you can simply holler "Alexa!" followed by your request and the Fire 7 responds.

Amazon Prime subscribers will also enjoy the way the Fire 7 integrates with the company's services, which happens smoothly and efficiently at every opportunity. The Fire 7 doubles up as a versatile smart-home controller, too.

All four colorways (plum, sage, twilight blue and black) are discounted and, at $39.99 (opens in new tab), there's very little to dislike. Want a little more storage? The 32GB is also reduced, from $69.99 to $59.99 (opens in new tab)
