12:17 – Conclusion and final thoughts
All in this is a great value. It performs well for the price and it has a superb display that’s good for video watching and web browsing. Most of the major services are available through the Amazon app store. Fans of YouTube will need to do a little more work to bring the official Android app over to this device.
The tablet integrates Alexa voice commands without the need to push a button. It is essentially a portable Amazon Echo. It also smartly works with other echo devices nearby to determine which of the devices executes the command to avoid duplication.
For the price I can’t find much to complain about here.
