Amazon Kindle Fire HD ( 2013)

 

Editor's note (September 18, 2014): The product reviewed here is discontinued and has been replaced by the Kindle Fire HD 7 .

The Amazon Kindle Fire HD (2013) is faster than its predecessors, has an affordable price, and runs the latest and greatest version of the Kindle Fire OS.

Its default storage size -- 8GB -- is too little space for most tablet needs. Also, there are no cameras and Amazon's video chat customer support is not available. Ad removal still costs an extra $15.

The 2013 Kindle Fire HD works perfectly as an e-reader with a few extra tablet features, but users looking to take full advantage of Amazon's ecosystem should pay more for the Fire HDX.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 Review

 

About a year ago, the Amazon wowed the tech world with the Kindle Fire, a mainstream, easy-to-use tablet that cost only $200. Over last holiday season, the Fire rose to prominence as the most popular tablet outside of the iPad, eclipsing rivals like...

Excellent Dolby sound ; Great access to Amazon content ; Clear HD screen ; Great battery life

Lockscreen ads are blatant and annoying ; Amazon goes overboard upselling products ; Interface is laggy at times ; Limited to Amazon services & content ; Amazon email/calendar apps don’t match Google’s ; No homescreen customization

The Kindle Fire HD is a good device if all you want to do is consume Amazon content.

Great-looking IPS screen ; Much-improved design ; Strong WiFi performance ; Extensive content selection

Occasionally sluggish performance ; Constant sales pitches

Amazon's Kindle Fire HD is a big step forward over the original Fire, but still a little too customized to appeal to more serious tablet users.

To put a review of the Kindle Fire HD in perspective, you have to peer just a tiny bit into the past. It was barely a week ago that the world watched Amazon begin a magical transformation from that of a humble multinational that retails every product...

Terrific display ; Ecosystem with Prime is outstanding ; Faster performance all around

Software can be buggy and sluggish ; App selection is still weak ; For lean-back experiences only

Amazon brings the fight to Apple's iPad and the Nexus 7, but is the beauty more than skin deep?

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7" review

 

While the standard Kindle Fire has been lightly revised and reissued for a mere $159, the new Kindle Fire HD is Amazon's true effort to fight off the Nexus 7.

Excellent 7" display ; Strong battery life ; Sleeker build than Fire ; Great value for price ; Amazon's media offerings ; Enhanced Wi-Fi

Lacking app selection ; Locked-down UI ; Games are mixed bag ; Slow-loading store

Not sure what others are complaining about. My Fire HD is an outstanding tablet. The awesome display and the ability to run Android based apps makes this the best bang for the buck. As far as the adds, a quick swipe and they are gone. Since this...
