Reviews

User Reviews 1 User Reviews I appreciated that he unboxed the tablet and showed its design. The plastic construction "nice and sturdy" and said it feels solid. However, with a weight of 500g, it may be heavy for a child to hold.
Regarding the display, The Full HD resolution helped make visuals look nice and crisp. He also noted good viewing angles and loud volume from the stereo speakers. However, he showed that the aspect ratio causes letterboxing when watching widescreen video.

User Reviews 2 I like Amazon's tablets, especially for kids, due to the parental controls and FreeTime app. I purchased the tablet for under $1000 HKD when it normally retails for $149 USD. I had a hard time finding it in Asia but it should be easy to find at Best Buy or order online in the US.

User Reviews 3 I was impressed with the full HD 1080p display and thought it was Amazon's best looking Fire tablet screen yet. The battery life exceeded his expectations, lasting almost 5 hours of continuous video streaming before needing to be recharged. The speakers were decent, though distorted at max volume. The pre-installed Amazon Fire TV app crashing that he hopes gets fixed. I was surprised the tablet handled games well without overheating.
