5.0 out of 5 stars Little Machine, Lots of Power!
By Melissa Stevens on February 2, 2015
Okay, I will admit it. I have always been a Kindle skeptic. I would consider myself pretty experienced with tablets, but they have always been on the android platform. I have heard mixed reviews about this particular tablet, but let me tell you, I was beyond impressed. I never thought a little six inch tablet would pack this much punch.
This does have a good weight to it, which I like. I opened this up and the setup process took less than 5 minutes. It synced effortlessly to my amazon account and I can now watch movies, look at photos, and read my books with no issues. I have experienced zero lag, even after installing about a dozen apps. The layout is a little different than other tablets, but it was very easy to figure out. Everything loads very fast. I think one of my favorite features is that it imports my photos to the cloud (but has unlimited photo storage for pictures) so I can access all of my photos from all of my devices! It is great to have them all in one place.
Obviously, this opens books like a dream. The camera is pretty good for a tablet. My phone has a better camera, but I do not expect very high quality photos from a tablet. This blew my expectations out of the water!
I definitely recommend! I received this product for review purposes.
