If you're power user, avoid it.
So far ok. Only standby power not so good.

During video streaming and surfing web, the battery didn't drop much, very good.

Anyway, Maybe after they upgrade their fire os based on nougat, things may improve.

Some android apps can be disabled.
Via Settings - Apps.
After disable it will not be visible & update.

However the apps disabled are available to enable.

In the first place fire tablets are stated as 'no delivery to singapore'. I get mine from using ezbuy's 'ship for me' services. Shipping is about $13 only.

For some unknown reasons I realize mine don't have the ads despite I bought the ones with the ads. Been using for a few mths yet to see any ads
