Amazon Kindle Fire HD review (7-inch)

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: To put a review of the Kindle Fire HD in perspective, you have to peer just a tiny bit into the past. It was barely a week ago that the world watched Amazon begin a magical transformation from that of a humble multinational that retails every product ever made in the world, to that of a consumer electronics powerhouse that wants to bring the fight to Apple on the tablet front.
  • Pros: Terrific display, Ecosystem with Prime is outstanding, Faster performance all around
  • Cons: Software can be buggy and sluggish, App selection is still weak, For lean-back experiences only

Amazon Kindle Fire HD Review: In Depth

Recombu
5 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The first thing users will see when they take it out the box is a very plain, very ordinary looking tablet. It’s unimaginative design is deceptive to the point of doing the device a disservice, as once you switch it on you’re treated to a rich and diverse user experience unlike anything the competition say they may offer. With both the Kindle Fire and Fire HD, Amazon has changed what the sub-brand means and it’s as a result of the hardware on offer.
  • Pros: Beautiful 7-inch HD display, Excellent stereo sound, Vast library of content, Affordable
  • Cons: Clunky, generic design, Locked to Amazon apps and content, No expandable memory

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 Review

thinkdigit.com
1 July 2013
  • Summary: Before anyone gets confused and starts comparing this with the likes of the Google Nexus 7 and the other Android tablets out there, it is imperative to specify that this tablet is made to work in the Amazon ecosystem. While it may be Android at the very basic level, the Amazon skin completely takes over. Excellent hardware and display make this a very good device to read text on, and the gaming performance is impressive.
  • Pros: Sharp and crisp 7-inch display, Good design and form factor, Intuitive Interface wrapped around Android, Unmatched e-book library, Amazon App Store is clean in terms of quality, Pre-registered with your Kindle account
  • Cons: Android fans will be disappointed, Every opened item adds to carousel, App Store still has some missing links, Power and volume keys are not designed very well

Review Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 Tablet

Notebookcheck
6 November 2012
  • Summary: The redesigned Fire. The $200 original stood alone when it launched, but more and more tablets are now steadily creeping up towards the price point and giving the Kindle Fire series a run for its money. Now with immediate competition, can the Kindle Fire HD 7 rekindle the budget tablet space?
  • Pros: Bright IPS display, Great outdoor usability, Easy-to-use UI, Good build quality, HDMI-out, The Kindle Fire HD has a brighter screen and more straight-forward UI than Android. Anyone can pick up and play and stream content very easily from Amazon's growing catalogs of eBooks, music, videos, and everything in between.
  • Cons: Bland UI, little customization options, Average hardware performance, No SD slot or WWAN options, Lockscreen Ads for $200 model, No official support for Android apps, More end-user customization would open the tablet up to more possibilities and variety. The tablet feels closed by catering almost exclusively to Amazon-only content. Faster hardware would be ideal as well in order to compete with the Nexus 7, though this may increase the overall cost of the tablet.

  • Conclusion: The 7-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD is a great way to consume your Amazon content on a small screen, but it's not the fastest or most flexible $200 tablet any more.
  • Pros: Gorgeous screen. Very easy to use. Amazon Prime members get lots of video and book content. Multi-user parental controls.
  • Cons: Rigidly locked to the Amazon ecosystem. Sluggish on occasion. Other tablets have more apps.

  • Conclusion: It's hard to not like the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. It excels at its purpose as an affordable one-stop device for reading Amazon books and magazines, streaming video, playing music and providing you with a safe (albeit somewhat limited) app store.

  • Pros: Excellent display, wonderful array of Amazon content, easy to use, great customer service.
  • Cons: No access to the Google Play Store or other Google services.

Phone Arena
17 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Looking at the next year ahead, Amazon has something to be happy about since it now has an established consumer base in the tablet industry, which is especially intriguing knowing that they had none of the pie a year ago.

  • Pros: Sharp looking display, Affordable, Peppy performance from its CPU
  • Cons: Lacks Goole Play and other core apps, Still lacking depth of personalization

Amazon Kindle Fire HD (7 inch)

LAPTOP Magazine
11 September 2012
  • Summary: With its superb display, superior speakers and improved performance, the $199 Kindle Fire HD is easily one of the best 7-inch tablets available. And, thanks to Amazon's vast library of movies, music, books and magazines -- and the new X-Ray functionality -- this slate is in fact the best choice for consuming content on the go.
  • Pros: Crisp and bright display, Impressively loud speakers, Large selection of movies and music, High-quality Skype calls, Kid-friendly FreeTime mode, Double the storage of Nexus 7
  • Cons: Ads on lock screen cost 15 dollars to remove, Considerably wider than Nexus 7, Smaller app selection than Google Play, Browser off limits in FreeTime mode, Charger costs extra
