Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on December 15, 2018
Kindle stopped connecting to internet while other wireless devices in the house still work. Standard trouble shooting steps do not work. Based on several message boards I've found, this is a common issue and known by Amazon. The fact that it has not been resolved means they either (a) do not understand the issue or (b) it's a known issue with the HW that cannot be fixed with a SW update (my money is on "b")

To be honest I was disappointed with this product even before the wi-fi stopped working. I was replacing a 3 year old 8" Galaxy Tab A that frankly is far superior in almost every way (look/feel, design, responsiveness). The Fire just looks and feels cheap by comparison. Yes, it's less expensive than the Samsung, but if you divide that savings by the expected lifetime usage (2-3 years in my case), the savings comes to $2-4 per month. Not worth it for a decision I have to regret every day.
