Has anyone got or had  a Amazon Fire 7 tablet ( with Alexa)

Asking as I bought one in October and it is awful battery is useless, have to charge it  twice a day, only use it to play a game on, it also freezes and shuts down, specially when in middle doing something

Anyone else ?

 

Thanks

Sandy

Got it from Argos

depends what is running the background

wack something like CCleaner on it and do a clean up.

 

there are lots of apps that if you just follow the routine given to register and get it working get installed and they run in the background when not needed and that will eat the battery life

I can sometimes get 3 days out a fire I have.

It  says it has 39 apps on it, I have only installed f/b, a game and messenger , rest were already on it, I also keep it on low battery saving.

Just get annoyed that is keeps closing down for no reason, I do  not use  any other apps on it

well update on this, Amazon decided to  replace my tablet, did not ask if I wanted a replacement but today it turned up, I discovered it was a refurbished one!  I was not impressed and  told them this, I spoke to someone via there portal and tbh they are not interested and will not give me a refund or even take the damn refurbished one back!

I still have the receipt  for the original one ( from Argos ) so will see if they will refund me, I am not happy       with the tablet and it has got worse recently, I have no idea what to do with  the replacement item?

Need help with this please

I sent the refurbished tablet back first class, signed for on December 30th, seems  Amazon have not got it, I went to the post office tracking service and  all it says  it will be updated once it has been signed for!

I have contacted Amazon but they are not interested, said need proof! I have the receipt  but not able to do screen shots ( my comp is about dead ) and  say they will charge me for the item if it is not returned!

I had pay for the item to go back which Amazon said they would refund me, they have not, now what?

Any advice/help please

TIA

Sandy xx

Write an email to them, sometimes they refund the postage cost if you're nice enough.
