Hi all, i'm a huge Amazon fan and love the Kindle Fire line of tablets. I own iPad's, Nexus 7 and a few others.
I received my KF-HD yesterday and it's on FW 7.2.1 and a few issues have arisen but not sure if it's due to the update.
I like a clean carousel so I remove the app tiles from the carousel. What's weird is that the tiles will all reappear at random so I need to remove them again. Is there a solution for this? I have so many apps I hate having to scroll trying to find them in the carousel. I owned the original Kindle Fire and I never had that problem.
I'm getting grey blank app tiles again, yay. It was an issue with the original Fire and it's happening again on the HD version. I tried the "sync" option and they do not update the app tiles that are blank.
Double tapping to zoom in is sporadic and doesn't always work on webpages. I need to retry several times before it works.
Battery life is still terrible. On the original Fire I would get maybe 9 hours of streaming iHeart Radio. It doesn't sound bad but I get around 4 days of streaming on my iPad.
I don't mean to be overly critical because I love the device, and as a Prime member I love how the whole package is well integrated with the device.
I wonder if the 8.9" Fire would alleviate the issues noted with a better processors and bigger battery?
TIA for any suggestions :)
