Amazon Kindle Fire HD

 

We find out if Amazon's 7-inch Android tablet beats the Google Nexus 7.

Decent screen ; Good value ; Has a video output

Prescriptive UI ; No GPS

Aside from Wi-Fi, all you get is Bluetooth, letting you connect with Bluetooth speakers and headphones.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

Can the Amazon Kindle Fire HD take on the Google Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini?

Sturdy build ; Screen is great for video ; Huge ebook selection

No 3G ; Backlit screen on books ; Slightly lacking in apps

Amazon Kindle Fire HD

 

The Kindle Fire HD brings to the UK something missing from Amazon's armoury: a tablet. With the Kindle E Ink reader now firmly lodged in the hands, and minds, of many, the most important thing about this particular tablet might not be the operating...

User interface is nicely integrated with content, cloud storage options, build quality, affordable, sound quality

Lacks some of the convenience of native Android apps, app store lacks some of the best that Android offers, display is a bit too glossy, no offline video from Lovefilm, can feel a little slow to navigate at times

The Kindle Fire HD wants to be the complete package, from hardware to content. The price makes it attractive and there are various options on offer: higher storage at £209 and the "with offers" alternative, which knocks £10 off the price in exchange...

Amazon Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8 review

 

Okay for Amazon's media offerings, and that's about it

Low price ; Impressive speakers ; Improved FireOS

Terrible screen resolution ; Sluggish performance ; Plasticky design

Poor performance and sub-par screen resolutions leave you questioning the purpose of these affordable tablets.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

Now comes in two size choices for the discerning tablet worrier

Sharp, warm screen ; Unmatched media library ; Highly streamlined UI

Online stores are sluggish ; Lack of core tablet functionality ; Poor app store

Both the Kindle Fire HD 7 and 8.9 are excellent value tablets for the solid, capable hardware you're getting. But you need to think carefully about what you want from a tablet and what the alternatives are.

Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Review: In Depth

 

Amazon Fire HD 6 Kids Edition review: we check out Amazon's affordable & child-proof tablet, which comes with a year's Fire for Kids Unlimited subscription

Great value ; Kid-proof ruggedness ; Bundled subscription

Seriously chunky ; Best for Amazon advocates

Amazon’s Fire HD Kids Edition tablet is something that parents can hand to their sprogs without stress. The tablet’s durable build is massively reinforced with a chunky shock-absorbing case, while the parental controls and two-year guarantee add extra...

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

Amazon's Kindle Fire HD is roughly a year old now. It originally cost £159 (with adverts on the lock screen) but has just had a price cut to £119.Opinions differ as to the reason for the slashing: some say it's to compete with the Tesco Hudl, reviewed,...

The Kindle Fire HD wasn't the best 7in tablet when it launched in 2012, and even at the new lower price, it can't really compete with newcomers including Tesco's Hudl. The Fire HD locks you into Amazon's world, which still lacks the breadth of choice...

Kindle Fire HD vs new Nexus 7 2 review

 

Two of the most popular budget 7-inch Android tablets are the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the Google Nexus 7. Now that Google has released a new Google Nexus 7 2 tablet, we thought it would be a good idea to put the two tablets head-to-head with each...

There's no denying that (on paper) the new Nexus 7 2 is a all-round better tablet than the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. The only question you need to ask yourself is whether its worth the extra £50; we would suggest that it definitely is.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

It's been a while coming, but Amazon has finally made the decision to make its Kindle Fire devices available to UK customers. If you hadn't been paying attention, and missed Amazon's TV advertising blitz, then you might assume these were simply...

A good value tablet with an excellent screen, HDMI output and LoveFilm support - but the Amazon interface is sluggish and inflexible
