LAPTOP Magazine

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...
  • 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 Fire HD 7

CNET
28 March 2013
  • Summary: For an inexpensive tablet, the Fire HD 7 satisfies with a practical, family-friendly operating system, but those interested in a 7-inch tablet can find models with better build quality in the same price range.
  • Pros: The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 is faster than last year's model and starts at an affordable $140 (£120). Amazon's Sangria OS is user-friendly and new features make the tablet easily shareable for families.
  • Cons: Its plastic redesign feels cheap and it lacks the Mayday instant customer service feature. Free space on the 8GB models runs out quickly and there's no expandable memory option. The Amazon app store is less extensive than the Google Play store.

Review: Amazon Kindle Fire HD

Wired
27 March 2013
  • Pros: New physical design and updated user interface make for a more refined overall experience. Audio Whispersync and X-Ray for Books and Video make watching, listening and reading that much more enjoyable. Beautiful screen. Good speakers. HDMI out for mirroring on a TV. Battery lasts about 10 hours.
  • Cons: Silk browser still needs work. No quick app switching. No default camera app. E-mail, calendar and contacts feel like afterthoughts — the emphasis here is clearly on consuming content, playing games and reading books, not advanced productivity.

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 ev...
  • 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...

Amazon Kindle Fire HD (7", Wi-Fi)

PC Magazine
29 September 2012
  • 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.
