I like the compactness of this and full google play compared with the fire 10. I still have some apps that don't run properly on fire OS for some reason. I'd like a brighter and higher res screen at this price.

Get an S6 Lite or even an A7 before you get an A7 Lite.

8.7" Screen
1340 x 800 pixels
Slower CPU vs A7

Good price for a good tablet if you're looking for something more compact than the 10" class. Compared to the current Amazon Fire HD8, it's a bit sleeker in design, has 3 GB RAM as opposed to 2 GB, and a few extras like GPS. But most importantly it runs standard Android 11 rather than Amazon's custom FireOS (currently based on Android 9). FireOS isn't 100% compatible with all Android apps.

product dimensions.
samsung A7 LITE‎: 21.2 x 12.5 x 0.8

fire hd 10 : 24.7 x 16.6 x .92

but in reality you are saving a lot more space with fire hd 10 since its 1080p

You are mixing up the A7 (10.4") and the A7 Lite (8.7"). The A7 has a 2000 x 1200 display. This thread is about the A7 Lite, which compares to the Fire HD8.

Those sale prices have been generally available everywhere for the last couple of weeks, but Amazon.ca had a 12-hour sale price of $199 on the A7 earlier this week.

Also note that Costco's A7 is packaged with an additional 64 GB Lexar microSD card in the box for that $229 price.

The biggest selling point would be the GPS for navigation, the RAM is second but isn't critical on this limited platform.

Big check box for GPS. I'm not big into the HD8, but the nearly 50% price premium for the Samsung A7 Lite vs the non-sale price HD8 should give one pause.

Remember, I'm mainly a Samsung guy, I own an S21 base and just bought a Watch4. I also believe the S6 Lite and S7 tablets are excellent. I go with what works.

God bless.

P.S. The A7 Lite looks like a no-brainer solution for mounting a tablet in your vehicle, tether to your phone for traffic avoidance on travel apps.
