Advertising

Advertising:
"It's ok but all the built in advertising is EXETREMY ANNOYING!"
_
"Please Amazon, give your customers some choice (and also their morning news- it's what keeps us alive while we wait for our coffee) I hate the advertising on the home screen which makes me feel like I'm driving down a freeway rather than holding a convenient electronic book in my hand."
_
"This tablet has very annoying and intrusive advertising built in."
_
"Terrible deceptive advertising, this tablet did not survive a 2 foot fall , much less the commercials showing it skidding across a drive way after flying off the top of a minivan in motion, or flying out of a 6'8 basketball players hands and crashing on a counter... AMAZON refuses to stand behind this feeble product BUYER BEWARE..."
_
"My point is, the advertising is not what it says it is and they are not child friendly."
_
"WORKS JUST FINE SO FAR LOTS OF ADVERTISING THAT I REALLY DO NOT APPRECIATE BUT I HAVE TO LIVE WITH THAT I GUESS."

_
"I was hesitant because it is advertising that I don't need, but had no problem getting it with special offers on the ones for the kids also."

_
"The advertising stated it was great, I don't think so."
_
"Love the tablet, hate the constant advertising."

Amazon

Amazon:
"This is the worst issue i have had with Amazon."
_
"Amazon itself has the worst tech support out of any tech company I have ever dealt with."
_
"Only used since last Christmas and now it is dead and Amazons response is to offer $20 off on a new one."
_
"Unfortunately, this app is pre-installed by Amazon, it cannot be deleted."
_
"However, I will stand fast on my complaint that Amazon does not provide enough information."
_
"THE BIGGEST ISSUE IS AMAZON DOES NOT STAND BY THIS PRODUCTWhen my Kindle failed to boot up after 11 months of use Amazon informed me that since the Kindle sat under the Christmas tree for a few weeks before being registered for use my warranty happened to expire by less than two weeks."
_
"Also, for those of you who aren't very tech-savvy, if you do have questions, Amazon's support is amazing!"
_
"I have ordered from Amazon a great deal for years if you look at my account and extremely few issues, but this one was a total inconveniance but we will keep the black one that works and i am sending the other 2 back."
_
"In fact, he accidentally ordered some things, which by the way, Amazon was very nice and helped us cancel those orders... which leads me another point."
_
"I use this Kindle Fire mostly for Facebook and Netflix and Amazon videos (Netflix and Amazon works great)The battery life is decent, typically I can watch 3 movies back to back or nearly 5 episodes back to back of a favorite TV show like Breaking Bad or Walking Dead length from a full battery."
_
"Pros:-Faster OS (5.0) than prior versions and an improved UI-Expandable storage-Ability to download Prime media (movies and TV) for offline play which was great on our recent travels-Light-Decent screen quality-WiFi chip has been solid-Great size for readingCon's-Still too much glare and can be difficult to see even in a car with brightness at maxOverall, this seems to be great for reading and media consumption in the Amazon Ecosystem."

Android

Android:
"Do be forewarned when you purchase a kindle though that it has Amazon Market Place and is not compatible with the android market."
_
"It works well for what it is, better than an android, not quite as good as an iPad."
_
"It might not be as good as a vanilla Android on Nexus 7, but it also has its perks."
_
"Mine was $25 and it's a leather cover with a blutooth - which only costs about $5 for a regular android tablet, by the way.7) The camera on the back is on the wrong side!"
_
"With all the Android security flaws, it's possibly a VERY good thing that Amazon limits its access to Android apps, as much as people complain."
_
"If you're looking for a tablet to just check email, browse the net, and stream from amazon then I think you'll be happy, but if you are a more advanced user (especially an android user) this is probably not a good fit for you."
_
"In that way it is as lame as the iDevices, however, Android phones I have seen are able to float the video window, and afford you the ability to multitask."
_
"I have been very happy with my Fire HD and might even give android based devices another try as it seems to have come a long way from what it was in the early days of release."
_
"The only con would be the lack of system flexibility that a typical android device enjoys."
_
"With all the Android security flaws, it's possibly a VERY good thing that Amazon limits its access to Android apps, as much as people complain."

_
"My laptop broke down and I was worried I didn't have enough battery storage on my Fire."
_
"It's hard to do that on the Kindle Fire HD 6 because the battery already runs quickly, if you watch a 5 min video on YouTube, about 10 % goes."
_
"My only complaint is that I feel like the battery life doesn't last as long."
_
"It is small so it fits in my purse and has great battery life."
_
"Pros:- Bought during the Christmas sale at an excellent price- Very nice screen resolution- Very good battery life when just being used as a KindleCons:- At only 6, it's barely bigger than a phone, so keep that in mind if you don't have great vision."

_
"The battery life is pretty decent."

Button

Button:

_
"Getting to the home screen can be quite a chore - specially when an app goes on the fritz like I had happen to me... missing any physical button to return to a central app screen is a major major bummer."
_
"Design - All the physical buttons are misplaced and pretty difficult to find and operate.3."
_
"Do not buy this item, and here's why:-The on off and volume buttons are small, and hard to press."
_

_
"I have a BLU 5 cell phone Android based and noticed that when surfing the web, for example seeing the Amazon site, a ton of buttons are missing."

_
"Wonderful tablet but the buttons are the absolute non existent worst."

Charge

Charge:
"The device is fine but I am really disappointed that Amazon charges $15.00 extra to loyal customerswho don't wish to view an ad every time they start up their Kindle!"
_
"Opened it up and was able to play immediately with 75% charge..so far made me dad of the year for getting this for my daughter! "
_
"Pros..- inexpensive- crisp display, good in all light as you control manually (but pull-down shortcuts are accessible and I'm sure leaving out light sensors (eg iPad) cut production cost)- wifi links well without dropping even on trains an on public wifi- gorilla glass... not one scratch even though I have never used a case.. just toss in bag and go...- perfect size for holding in one hand.. even more so than my iPad mini or phone 6+ (although heavier and thicker than an iPad that heft makes it easier to grip)- excels in kindle app for reading and native Amazon Video app- good battery life.. ~8 hrs between charges- Amazon prime trial- Amazon customer support!"
_
"Charges pretty slow, takes a few hours to fully charge in a wall, and slower in your car."
_
"Charges quickly and lasts pretty long."
_
"The battery last up to 8 hours which is great for the amount I use it and it charges up fast."

Chromecast

Chromecast:
"Cons:- The 8GB storage is a bit rough without the SD card slot that some of the new models have- Restricted to Amazon app store, which while not bad at all, still can't keep up with the Play Store- Doesn't work with Chromecast which is frustrating as it seems more like a jab against google than some inherent tech shortfallAll in all, this is a great little table for those using tablets for browsing and media consumption, which seems to be most people in truth."
_
"One of the things I loved about the nexus was being able to stream netflix or hulu in the bedroom to the tv with our chromecast, and I haven't been able to figure out how to do it from here, or even if it's possible."
_
"Also I cannot watch YouTube on it & I have a Chromecast but it is not compatible with the Kindle (I wish it were) I have to use my iPhone or my Chromebook laptop to control my chromecast."
_
"I was disappointed that I could not use chromecast to stream Netflix."
_
"Only drawback is not able to use with chromecast but otherwise verysatisfied."
_
"It seems like a shame that Amazon won't allow users to take advantage of the Chromecast capabilities of the device because they would rather sell their Fire TV device."
_
"I can't connect to the Chromecast from the Fire HD 6 but it works great with the Amazon Fire TV Stick (of course)."
_
"My big disappointment is that Amazon gets so Amazoan in proprietory matters and it not designed to work or play nice with others i. e.; google chrome, chromecast, chrome extension - they don't tell you that before you purchase!"
_
"The Chromecast has been great for playing video content from my Chromebook, Win 8 tablet, iPad Mini, and Android tablet."
_
"Would be nice if it could connect to my chromecast."

Connector:

_
"The only complaint I have is the headphone jack."
_
"The sound is loud enough to enjoy without headphones, but it has a nice audio jack to hook to headphones or speakers."

Crash

Crash:
"First you cannot get any applications that include Google this includes YouTube Google plus Gmail or anything related on the app store also I encountered a problem while opening some of my apps I would open it and then it would just crash and delete whatever I opened so yeah that's not that good I don't think ."
_
"Tried very hard to steer clear from the typical ipad samsung tablet choice and give the amazon fire a chance....The screen is beautiful but it runs slow and has frozen crashed on my 5 times already and I've only had it for about a week...It is really frustrating and annoying to deal with. )"
_
"And, most disappointing, Silk would crash on about every third page."
_
"Unable to delete bloatware :-( ...And it crashed.. A LOT.. as I could not compare it to my iPads I simply assumed this was the norm."
_
"Also the first two apps I installed one crashes and the other is missing features."
_
"I do have a Kindle Fire HDX 7 inch that doesn't give me the problems that this smaller version gives me at best it is good for viewing Downloaded movies and not much else, the apps that I have on this device sometimes have updates and this little device crashes with the updates, by that I mean freezing up and giving error messages."
_
"Good build quality, but it's been crashing when I'm trying to listen to amazon prime radio while using the browser."
_
"I haven't had any problems with it crashing, some games get glitchey, but this would be the same on any platform and cannot be blamed on the tablet."

_
"It's crashed a few times as well."
_
"She has to make a sudden stop and the Kindle slides from the car crashes on to the ground and a nice Young man picks it up and hands to the lady with no significant damage."

Customization

Customization:
"I also really dislike how there is absolutely no customization with this tablet."
_
"Being aloud to customize your screen the camera resolution is not so great."
_
"It's ridiculous that you can't do basic customization like changing the wallpaper to anything besides a plain black."
_
"The ads are annoying and the customization is limited compared to other tablets"
_
"I dislike the carousel design and the inability to do any customizations."
_
"I also hate that I can't customize it (theme ,wallpaper etc).all I really do with it is download and organise my kindle books for my regular kindle."
_
"I love the color customization, the standing protective case for the FIRE HD and also the convenience of having a tablet that is small enough to fit in your purse."
_
"Great item I wish it had the ability to customize it a bit more, perhaps an upgradable SD card slot might have made this item perfect."
_
"If you want a customizable device, with a large selection apps, and is able to be sideloaded with custom content, I would suggest a Nook."
_
"The interface is so nice and clean but with all the promise of speed and customization that I have come to love any Android device for."
_
"Pros: Good for the priceGood cameraCons: No customization optionsYou can only get Amazon-approved appsI'm sure there are others, but I'm already somewhat dissatisfiedYou're probably better off just getting a Samsung tablet or something."

Display

Display:
"heavier than I thought, but great display, camera quality not as great, however, an awesome product for its price."

_
"Excellent product really like the size and display is not great but good enough."
_
"I miss and love my regular 7 tablet and only had to get a new one because of the broken display."
_
"It's not as user friendly as the original, already seems to have a few glitches in it (such as I fall asleep reading a book and when I wake up, swipe the screen, the Kindle displays a game), it seems absurd that they expect to be paid extra money to remove the ads that someone paid them to put on there in the first place (as if they're not already making enough of a profit off the product itself), and there have already been issues with turning it off & setting it down at 90% power only to come back a few hours later to find it at 20% power."
_
"The display is annoying."
_
"I honestly have only good things to say about it- It's got a sharp display that gives you crystal clear reading or web browsing, and a super fast processor- no lags in sight."

Durable

Durable:
"I am really disappointed that it wasn't nearly as durable as my son's, even though they are exactly the same model."
_
"Yes, the device is cute and easy to use, but there are still technical glitches to be worked out and a better approach to their marketing of a durable product that is not as durable as they claim."
_
"I have one in a 7 inch for the wife and I and bought a 6 inch for the kids... very durable and rugged tablet both tablets have had a couple of scary falls but it held up amazingly great screen display the only complaint that I could even possibly think of to have is that a lot of the apps that you can get on google play are not found through the amazon app store but than again a lot of them are there as well .."
_
"Good device but not very durable."
_
"I purchased the Unicorn Beetle Supcase for it and I love it, the case is durable and solid, easy to grip."

_
"Camera is not that great and there is no flash."
_

"Still not a fan of on-screen keyboards, but I can't find any faults unique to the Kindle."

Loud

Loud:
"The speaker isn't loud and clear like my other kindle."
_
"The only thing not improved is that the speaker is not very good or very loud."
_
"The only real complaint I have with this is that the speaker's volumes is weak, but it is loud enough to read and listen to (I'm sure if it was too much louder there would be complaints against those that listen to their music too loudly, so it is a nice compromise, and I'm sure that if I want to listen to the programs, the earplugs would be loud enough, but it would take away from the ambiance of the speaker."
_
"I am a little disappointed with the volume.....I can't get it very loud."
_
"I was only a bit disappointed that the sound is not as loud as I would like."
_

_
"And a few other android apps are not compatible- like the dish network hopper app."
_
"Limiting apps for network tv, games, and Netflix is starting to display an error."
_
"The best way to resolve the problem was to remove myself from the family network."

Scratch

Scratch:
"Mainly used by my 3yo son and has stood up to multiple drops and even being thrown a few times without any scratches, visible wear or problems with operation."
_
"Another thing that I love about it, is that it can withstand unnecessary roughness, I'm usually very careful with my stuff, especially electronics, but now I have a toddler that gets into everything I own, he grabbed it, the kindle, about two days after i received it, and threw it on the floor with so much force that i though the screen had broken, well to my suprise, when I picked it up, there's was absolutely nothing wrong with it, and I mean not even a scratch."
_
"I'm a prime meber but still had to pay to have the ads on the home screen removed, it lags like a laptop running vista and the usb plug does not want to easily allow a plug in to it which in my month of owning it has led to horrible scratches around the port.. Plus Amazon has some weird theory about sharing content so they won't put a sd slot in the reader."
_
"it hooks up real quick to my internet with no issues whatsoever, battery life she tells me last a good long time playing games and reading books, yesterday she watched movies nearly 6 hours before she told me she had to plug it in to charge it, the screen apparently is not a cheaply made one, because it has survived a month so far without one scratch on it, and she is 8 and i have seen her drop it myself ( she has no case), so good screen here.. All in all , I think Amazon has done a great job putting this little tablet together."

"A wee bit disappointed in the easy to create abrasive scratches on the backside, no matter how careful you think you are being."

"Bought it for my niece she loves it used it almost everyday has a high resolution screen and it doesn't scratch easy cause it has a gorilla screen for a $100 tablet u get more and has a powerful processor I have a kindle hdx 7 the picture has a higher resolution wow but I like niece tablet cause u can hold better with one hand with the case sold sold separately and thank u kindle for making these tablet love it"

"The only option that I really see that is missing is no USB mass storage."
_
"The Kindle Fire uses a micro-USB port similar to what a non-iPhone smartphone uses which presents a unique problem of transferring your data to the Kindle via USB."
_
"biggest complaint is each fire (and I have had 5) died because the USB port no longer worked connected."
_
"We did purchase an extra speaker to hook it to in the car because my car is old and doesn't have a USB hookup so it's not easy to play audio books and movie sound over the radio like it is for newer cars, and on bumpy roads with all of us listening we like more sound, but this plan works awesome- we just plug and play."
_
"Liked it better....except for the camera and map options and being able to use USB to charge in my car."
_
"Oddly enough, didn't charge with my Samsung cable although both are USB but otherwise great."
_
"It is very fast and I do like that the charger is a phone charger as well, and this can be charged in any USB port."
_
"It has very good video capabilities and the transfer via usb is doable."
_
"While a workaround can be found via a PC or USB, this does frustrate any easy file transfers."

Video

Video:
"While im almost always around wifi and can stream, there are times that I'm not and would like to be able to have more that one and at the most two movies saved for offline viewing."

_
"This is a BIG disappointment for movie fans."
_
"(HUGE PROBLEM FOR ME) -This means all my videos photos are lumped into one big folder."
_
"I'd think 8 GBs would be enough, but with the few movies I tried to download, it complained about space."

_
"Pros:-Faster OS (5.0) than prior versions and an improved UI-Expandable storage-Ability to download Prime media (movies and TV) for offline play which was great on our recent travels-Light-Decent screen quality-WiFi chip has been solid-Great size for readingCon's-Still too much glare and can be difficult to see even in a car with brightness at maxOverall, this seems to be great for reading and media consumption in the Amazon Ecosystem."

Volume

Volume:
"The only problem I have is that I read a lot of audiobooks and the volume is very low."
_
"And the other item I was a bit upset with is the LOW volume on high volume on the audio portion of the device .NOW, for the rest of the FIRE as I have had time to use it and LOVE IT."
_
"The volume is HORRIBLE."
_
"Do not buy this item, and here's why:-The on off and volume buttons are small, and hard to press."
_
"The only real complaint I have with this is that the speaker's volumes is weak, but it is loud enough to read and listen to (I'm sure if it was too much louder there would be complaints against those that listen to their music too loudly, so it is a nice compromise, and I'm sure that if I want to listen to the programs, the earplugs would be loud enough, but it would take away from the ambiance of the speaker."
_
"Just received my kindle today and I'm seriously loving it the volume is loud enough for me that I'm happy the picture is really clear solo impressed with this kind del glad I didn't skip on buying it!"
_
"Its pretty sturdy; volume is decent for its size."
_
"I bought the Fintie Fire HD 6 Tablet SmartShell Case Cover Ultra Slim Lightweight which is outstanding so I can easily use the volume, camera etc and it keeps it nice and small to fit into my purse."
_
"It is good, but I cannot get volume loud so I never know when I get messages or I cannot use my alarm."
_
"Good except for the volume."

_
"I have had a multitude of electronics from other manufacturers go out of warranty and still were covered in good faith."
