Amazon Kindle Fire Review Roundup: For $199, It's A Great Tablet, With Only The Odd Bug And Bad Review To Throw It Off

Android Police
14 November 2014
  • Summary: With the exception of Wired 's review, the overall verdict on the Kindle Fire seems to be this: though Amazon's offering may not pack the most features or horsepower of any tablet on the market, it's still a great option, if only because of its affordable $199 price point.

Amazon Kindle Fire (2012) Review: For The Budget Minded, A Great Entertainment Device - But Not Much Else

Android Police
30 September 2014
  • Summary: Therein lies the catch with the Kindles. If you're looking for a tablet computer , the Kindle is almost certainly not for you. The system is too inflexible and locked down, and they're designed from the ground up to serve as a middleman.

  • Summary: Overall opinion: If you are a US shopaholic addicted to Amazon, this might be the mobile device that is tailor-made for you. If you prefer other shopping venues and sites for, say, price comparisons or international service, seek another device. This one will be a waste of money.

Amazon Kindle Fire review

20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: This fall, Amazon surprised everyone with the release of the Kindle Fire. There had been a couple clues beforehand, but still no one expected the product Amazon announced. The Fire is an Android tablet, yes, but it is also something more.

Amazon Kindle Fire 7" Tablet Review

8 January 2012
  • Summary: Complete Amazon experience. Amazon caught the tablet world by storm when the retailer announced its first multimedia tablet for just $199 USD. Is the performance and hardware reflective of the budget price? or is the Kindle Fire greater than the sum of its parts?

Kindle Fire Review

25 December 2011
  • Conclusion: If you're trying to decide between an iPad and the Kindle Fire, you've got several things to consider. The iPad peforms better, with better features. Of course, the iPad is significantly larger -- certainly too big to carry in your pocket.
  • Pros: Check out that price tag, Support for Adobe Flash Player, Solid web browser for basic web browsing, The wealth of Amazon content at your fingertips, Video streaming and book-borrowing for free with Prime membership, Great deals on apps in Amazon app store
  • Cons: No Camera, No Bluetooth, No HDMI, No SD card slot or expandable storage, Poor placement of power button and headphone jack, No free (or paid) 3G option as seen on some e-ink Kindles, Limited app selection compared to full Android market

  • Conclusion: The Kindle Fire isn't a game changer in the world of tablets, but it's a very intelligent evolution of the Amazon ecosystem. With one device, Amazon can sell you eBooks, MP3s, videos and apps--they're all just a dangerous "1 Click" away.
  • Pros: Affordable, good quality, excellent Amazon shopping and support experience.
  • Cons: Lacks the features of a general purpose tablet, lags sometimes.

Kindle Fire: A great 2nd tablet, with good features for the job

Amazon Kindle Fire Review

29 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The Kindle Fire is probably the best tablet you can buy at $199. Amazon has effectively defined the new price point and specs for entry level tablets, anything comparable shouldn't even bother with a price tag greater than $199.
