  • Summary: Great to handle and oozes quality but what use is the lustre if it is crippled by a policy to shut it off from all the freedom around. Even apple is opening up to remain relevant. I never tried the fire phone but I guess this same paranoia killed it.

Silk Browser is a pig's ear.

MP3 "MP3", Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Silk browser is really poor quality and lets down an otherwise excellent piece of kit. Using it is like setting out in an old car - you never know if you will get there. You usually do get there in the end but the browser is slow and uncertain and installing a better one is frowned on by Amazon.

Very limited selection of apps. Questionable WiFi at best.

dekunstruct, Amazon
26 May 2014
  • Summary: The selection of apps is laughable, considering this is based on the Android framework. For a media consuming product, the available apps are just a sliver of what is available for Android tablets. WiFi connection gets lost frequently.

Disappointing

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought the Kindle Fire because of the good display, but it's a great shame google apps and the play store have been disabled. If I'd known this, I probably wouldn't have bought a kindle after all.

After numerous mayday calls I have now been informed that this is a fault with a number of devices and although the tech team are...

POOR BATTERY LIFE

TKM73, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had my Kindle Fire HDX since November 2013, & I am finding that the battery does not last as long as Amazon says it does. Take last night for example, I put it on charge, & found that when I woke up it was only 70% full. When I use it, I find that after about 2 hours the battery is dead.
