"Built-in preinstalled porn pop-up ads you can't disable"
20 January 2012
Pros: Idiot proof; Perfect size for reading or viewing books and movies as a commuter; Easy set up, no technical skills required. Absolutely loved it but I'm returning it because of the porn pop-up ads and the cluttered carousel function.
Cons: Have I mentioned the porn pop up ads? According to customer service these ads are preinstalled on the kindle fire and cannot be disabled. (Think about that.) So I am surfing the web or playing a game, and a video porn pop-up ad appears.
Pros: Very nice screen with good resolution. Text and images are nice and crisp. Easy to setup.
Cons: Thick and Heavy. Bad power button location (easy to turn off). Multi-touch is not very responsive. Slow for a dual core. Very poor app support with no true Android market access. Poor interface design. Crashes A LOT!
Excerpt: This is a great product if you want this for reading purposes. It has a reasonable price. You can surf the internet and use apps from google play but I didn't think it was smooth. For the price you are paying for this product it is very worth it and it is an awesome product if you like to read lot of books.
Excerpt: The kindle fire is better than most of the low cost tablets but the amazon operating system is limited and very clunky. It just isn't very responsive sometimes and the number of apps that are offered is very limited. It would make a great first tablet or an educational tool for a young child or student but I can't recommend it for any other use.
Excerpt: I bought this for my 12 year old daughter and ended up replacing it within a year. It was freezing up when playing songs/videos. Also a chronic problem is the charging port wears out. This happened to her twice. It is really great for simple reading and checking thinks out on the internet. Ok buy for the price. when the battery is getting low you need to charge...which if used a lot some for reason wears out. If not used constantly it should last longer.
Excerpt: i have owned the kindle fire hd for about 6 months now it freezes alot and when i go on the web it says it has stopped responding sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt not reliable at all i just honeslty would rather try the ipad kindle not reliable
