Where are the instructions?
17 January 2014
Excerpt: Like The Product. But would have liked to have had some instructions on how to use it. More than how to unlock it. Like how to find Books and how to buy Books and How to Use the Voice for Audio books. But It sure is great not to have to carry around Books.
Excerpt: The Kindle Fire HD was very easy to use the first time I turned it on. Luckily I had a USB wall plug because this kindle does not come with one. It comes with a SHORT USB cable only. So unless you have a power source with a USB port you cannot even charge this on purchase. I found this lack of a simple usable power cord to be very rude and cheap of Amazon.
Pros: Easy To Read, Good Screen Quality
Cons: 3-4 Hr Web Movie, 6 Hrs Reading On Charge, No Charger Only Usb Cabl, Short Battery Life, Short Life On 100 Chrg, Slippery
Summary: This is not what it's cracked up to be. I was sadly disappointed. I had high hopes for this. It doesn't take my stylist. I couldn't install anything on it. The browser sometimes freezes on a web page. It doesn't pick up wifi that well. Unless they can make a computer that takes my stylist, that would be awesome.
Excerpt: I would have liked a written owners manual to find out how it works. Still trying to figure it out, guess it would be great for a techie. I love all the free games and apps that you can download. I really like that there are free games that can be downloaded for my grandchildren to play. Look forward to having time to get online and being able to check my email and use facebook on my new kindle fire hd.
Excerpt: Not enough information to learn all the uses of tablet. I have to go ask you-tube to how many things???? No user manuel comes with product. They leave you out there and you have to figure how to navigate.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact Design, Good Screen Quality
Cons: Limited Compatibilty, Poor Software Bundle, Short Battery Life
