fast and simple UI, fast processor speed 2x, great display, build quality, rubberish feeling at the back, superb price but few apps to download and that's why all u need to have a c.c. to achieve its maximum potential...

The specs are good on paper its another story when in use. The kindle fire seems like it was rushed out without thought just to make some profit. I have a dual core droid x2 with the same processor clock speed of 1ghz so i should have an idea of how the kindle fire should run. Wrong! The kindle fire is slow. It freezes up frequently and is a hassle to use. The custom amazon ui is a huge annoyance considering how it is so strange and unfamiliar. There is a learning curve compared to other tablets like the iPad or android ones which are almost instinctive to use. Amazon has a filter in the android market which basically filters out all the free apps. Basically there is no good apps to download. The silk browser is slow. I would highly advise anyone that is thinking about buying the kindle fire to rethink.

I had the Kindle Fire for just under 3 years before I dropped it on pavement and the screen cracked. It is a nice tablet. It was very reliable. I almost never had problems with it crashing. The browser was nice. It works well as a 1st tablet for young kids.
However, it has such a small app store. It seemed good-sized when I had it (granted for nearly 2 years I owned it, it was the only device that I used that had an app store), but, in hindsight, it is so small. It had no camera, which wasn't a big deal for me when I had it. In hindsight, I must have a camera on a tablet. It has only 8GB of storage (which fills up quickly). I left the Amazon ecosystem after the Kindle Fire broke (went a few months without a tablet, then got the iPad Air 2). Overall, a nice tablet, but not on par with the top Android/iOS tablets.
Ignore the Reception/Call Quality/Camera ratings

Its fast and feels incredibly solid. Yes its Android 2.3.5 , but Amazon has gone out of there way to cover that up with an interesting nice UI. The dual core processor gives fluid performance. The display is brilliant Its an EXCELLENT buy, but if u like a camera & a different UI's i think you should wait for the incomjng 200$ tablets
Great budget device

Great for the price, battery could be better but everything else is great! It is a little annoying to have to adjust volume via software but that's a small gripe. I love the size of it and the screen is gorgeous. You cant go wrong with this at this price.
