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.

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.
