First off the look is nice. It's sleek, (I ordered the black model) and though actually quite a bit heavier than I'd imagined, it's not heavy enough to be considered a negative. The display is fantastic, and its quality was the first big surprise. The touch screen performs incredibly well, and to this point, I have experienced immediate response. To the point where I have to say touch response so far is indistinguishable from my iPad. Based on early reviews, this was not the case, so I have been quite pleasantly surprised. The Fire is very user friendly and easy to intuit. For those who do not feel confident with navigation of a new device, there is an immediate onscreen tutorial (with an option to skip) to guide you.
I first checked out the e-reader function. My books loaded immediately and easily from the cloud and I really like the functionality of the reader.Read more ›
First my background. I own many Amazon Kindles (b&w, Fire gen2, Fire gen3) as well as Apple Ipad (gen 4), Samsung Note 3 and have an LG G2 smartphone (had a Samsung S4 before that), notebooks, chromebooks, etc. I have also used many other products including the Fire HDX line. I have a solid computer background as well but honestly I am more of a casual user when it comes to tablets like this one.
Amazon has changed many things over the life of the Fire product line. Adding and removing features (like cameras--the first generation had one but the second generation removed them but not they are back).
They are all useful devices but each one has its own niche so to speak so make sure whatever you get has the features that are important to you.
Now to this model. This is like a big smartphone--which is a big difference from past kindles. It is more compact, lighter and yet still very usable. In fact for me, the shrinking of size increases the usefulness. I find that I use my smartphone way more than my tablets--even the smaller Fire HD and Samsung Note tablets so I am expecting this to replace more of that "on the couch" usage which is great since it so much less expensive than most smartphones. That means you can feel less bad about scratches that might occur or the accidental drops. (I am guilty of both.Read more ›
Pros: Low cost yet high tech
Great screen quality (of course there is better out there, but it looks great as is)
Smooth and responsive
Easy access to amazon prime content
Easy to wirelessly share content to a TV
Web browser works great
Cons: Doesn't have some apps android users are used to having
Camera quality isn't great and no flash
Less 'extra features' than some higher priced tablets have
I opted to go with the 16gb version with no ads. The ads aren't a big deal, but I figured I would pass on having them on my screen. No matter what version you pick, they all do the same things. The gigs may or may not matter to you. 8 and 16 gigs both aren't very large, but if you want to predownload some tv shows, movies, & music before a vacation, then you may want to look into getting the larger 16gig. If you will always have internet connection, then it isn't much a problem since you have unlimited cloud storage and can download to your device or stream at anytime you have internet.
Overall... If you want an Amazon tablet, and you want the best, go with the HDX series. However, if you want an amazing tablet but don't want to spend as much, then these new HD 6 & 7 series are great! For me and my uses, the HD 6 is the perfect fit.
I would suggest the 6 over the 7 for most buyers. The only 2 things the 7 has over the 6, are a larger screen, and dual speakers. Sure the dual speakers is kind of nice, but the screen is actually lower quality than the 6.Read more ›

It's slow, it's bulky, and heavier than expected. It was cheap and makes a good reader that I don't worry about losing or damaging. Good for kids since it's so inexpensive. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Donna Santana
Great device for reading kindle books, listening to music, and watching videos. Plays smaller games well, but larger apps do not play as well. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Rnt19783
