Get thee behind me, Satan.

(Fire tablets are also on sale-- how about a $30 7" CellNuvo swiper? ....but you'd need an empty desk top to triple-swipe.)

@KentE, I'm not familiar with the Amazon line of tablets... so if I am reading your post correctly, even though it's Amazon-based, the Fire tablet has full access to the Google Play Store and all of the Android apps, yes?

It runs on Android but does not come with Google Play Services installed.

It's easy to add, after the fact, however-- even if you're tech challenged.

What Chelle said....

It is easy to 'jailbreak' the Amazon Fire tablets. There are easy to follow tutorials online, and it took me about 15 minutes per tablet to get Google Play Store running and another 10 minutes to clean up the home screens to make the Amazon environment less noticeable (and to disable Alexa.). (A good part of the jailbreaking time is waiting for the tablet to reboot after each step.)
The real deal with the Fire tablets is that they're heavily subsidized by Amazon, even at normal retail price. They're not powerhouses, but they're more bang for the buck than you can probably find otherwise. Last year, I bought the 7"/8gb/$30 ones more for my godchildren. (Teens, who have enjoyed them-- I put in 16gb uSD cards for storage.) I bought the 8"/16gb models for the shop for apps we need to run there. (also on sale now for $50.)

I enjoy my Fire 7 tablet but I LOVE my Fire 8 tablet. It's very slim and easy to hold. A great tablet for the money.

I have a fire 7 and it is garbage. I hate it. I am not patient with lag and random temporary freezes so it bothers me a lot. I don't think it is worth the money. I think the fire 8 is better since it has a tad more RAM but I haven't tried it out myself.

I don't have Google Play Services on mine, so that might explain why I'm not experiencing lag. Or I might have fewer apps installed.
