Nice guide though thanks. No cellnuvo??

We need tablets for a control app at work, and the tablet needs to be toted around, used frequently while standing & doing other tasks, and often outdoors, and sometimes left unattended. I wanted something more disposable than the iPad that a lot of the guys prefer. The guys that own iPads still prefer those, but the Fire does the job.
I bought 3, and different types of cases for each. This case style was the winner for our application, with a rotating hand strap and prop on the rear, and a (removable) shoulder strap,
The case is available under a range of brand names, with/without shoulder strap, and for Fire models from 2016-2018 release.
My biggest complaint about the Fire-- the high-contrast color inversion setting does not work well. This is not a feature that most are likely to need, but I've found the setting handy for viewing the screen in bright sunshine with some apps.
Thanks for the tips, Chelle. I see at least a couple I'll have to do.

What you wrote about Opera browser's text wrap - is there a setting to get it to work in Opera Mini on a phone? I tried it on a Nougat phone but the text doesn't want to wrap for me. (Made sure that text wrap is on in Settings, tried Tablet mode as well as Phone mode). Thanks.
