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.
Summary: I am very disappointed with this product as it is really only good for downloading books, which is fine for my wife, but not for my needs. The choice of apps available for the Kindle are very limited with most, from what I can see, being for games. Not able to get the Sky Go apps, my banks' app, or anything useful! Not very accessible for anything of any substance, not even that good for web browsing. Certainly not for any office applications/software!
Summary: I purchased this kindle last week for my birthday coming up on the 26th of this month. It has a fault that when Bluetooth is switched on I cannot access the silk browser. 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 working on a solution there is no date on when it will be released.
Summary: I like that it is synced with my old kindle, my biggest disappointment is the app store, there is pretty poor which is compounded by the fact that kindle does not allow me to access google play. This is something everyone should consider before buying a kindle.
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. Also I am very disappointed that I cannot watch Sky Go on it, as it is not compatible with Adobe Flash Player.
frustating wi-fi and battery experience+ high risk of accidental purchases

Summary: compared with my basic android tablet, - this is lghter with a better screen, BUT - unlessplaced in aroplne mode, battery goes down 10& in several hours just doing "amazon" stuff over Wi-Fi. I estimate it would completely drain if left in standby for about 3 days , yet my other tablet would still be at 80-90%. ON wif-fi- with a strong signal to a Virgin Media super hub connecting after sleep frustrating, it would often hang at acquiring IpP & at authenticating.
Summary: i debated between buying the kindle or the i-pad air as i already have purchased 5 other kindles for my family and was quite pleased with my purchase's the latest kindle requires you to purchase additional items to make the item work as advertised such as the vodafone SIM CARD £25 also you will require a push2TV Adaptor another £70 so in retrospect i should have went for the apple i-pad air as i can watch love film through my laptop using my HDML cable
