Amazon refreshed its line of Fire tablets in 2019, delivering a lighter and thinner product with Alexa built right into the OS. It's a compelling option at $50, and that means you should have some money left over to spend on accessories to keep your new device protected.
Best value for tempered glass
Mr Shield offers a two-pack of screen protectors for the 7-inch Fire Tablet, with each screen protector laser cut from clear ballistic glass with polished, rounded edges designed to exactly fit the dimensions of the Fire 7 screen. Not only do you get two screen protectors here, but Mr Shield backs up its products with a lifetime, no-hassle replacement warranty.
Pairs nicely with a case
If you only need one screen protector and don't want to spend more than $10 to get it, you need to check out AILUN's offering. It includes all the features you want in a tempered glass screen protector — it's scratch- and shatter-resistant, features an oleophobic (oil-resistant) coating to prevent smudges and fingerprints, and is also compatible for use with a case.
Best value for film
If you're okay with a flexible film screen protector, Supershieldz offers three PET film screen protectors for the price of one made of tempered glass. That's a great deal that will ensure you've got backups on hand if you don't get the perfect installation the first time, or if your screen protector picks up some scratches and you want to replace it.
Tell the sun to beat it!
Screen glare can be a real drag when you're trying to enjoy your tablet in a sunny nook in your home. This two-pack of film screen protectors protect against scratches and oily fingerprints while also minimizing the glare from light sources. The kit includes two screen protectors along with a cleaning cloth and smoothing card for a bubble-free installation.
Sound protection for your tablet
A tempered glass screen protector is an excellent day-one accessory that will protect the display free from the micro-abrasions and scratches a tablet screen can pick up from daily use. OMOTON offers a two-pack of ultra-thin screen protectors with curved edges and a camera cutout to aid with installation. Perfect for protecting the kid's tablet.
Easy bubble-free installation
SPARIN offers a pair of tempered glass screen protectors that will go on smoothly with a bubble-free installation and protect your tablet from unsightly scratches and scuffs. Precisely cut for corner-to-corner protection along with a cutout around the camera, the screen protector is designed to absorb the shock of drops and take the brunt of any damage, so your tablet stays unharmed. Expect excellent customer service if you run into any issues.

Amazon's Fire devices are some of the best Android tablets around, and now that Amazon's tablet is fully integrated with Alexa, the Fire 7 can be that all-in-one hub for controlling everything that Alexa touches in your home with your voice or by touchscreen controls. Who doesn't love a capable little $50 tablet that you can putt around the house with? At that price, you can (and should) tack on an extra $13 to protect the screen from the wear and tear of daily use.
If you want to go the tempered glass route, I recommend the Mr Shield two-pack not only because it's the best price available. Mr Shield is a trusted brand that does a great job of supporting its products with lifetime replacements along with each package, including all the cleaning wipes and stickers necessary for a perfect installation.
For film screen protectors, you just can't beat the value of Supershieldz three-pack. Film screen protectors can be a bit trickier to line up during installation, so it's always nice to have spares readily available if things go sideways. Supershieldz is a reputable accessory maker that also does a great job backing up their products with quick responding customer service.
