Great Ebook Reader - Average Tablet

cantrben has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Amazing ebook reader crystal clear screen very responsive to user input HUGE book selection. However, since Amazon insists on using their own app store that really stops the Fire HD from being a truely amazing tablet. Its android based OS but you dont have access to everything Google has to offer unless you are willing to takena chance on bricking your device by rooting it. Also, having speakers on each side of the device is great for games that support 2 channel audio without having to wear earphones. The button placements being on the back of thhe tablet was also a wonderful idea. No more turning off the screen or hitting the volume by mistake. If the Fire HD would just givenaccess to Google Play it would almost rival the iPad!

Build quality 10/10 Very sturdy construction
Reception 10/10

UI speed 10/10

Text input 10/10 Virtual keyboard is accurate and very responsive
