Reviews for the Amazon Fire Kids Edition Late 2015

77% Amazon Fire Kids Edition (Late 2015) Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Family Fire. A thick protective cover, two-year worry-free warranty and a one-year subscription to "Amazon FreeTime Unlimited" is to make Amazon's cheapest Fire tablet suitable for children 3+ years with the Kids Edition. Parents will likely find the device interesting primarily for its reasonable price of 120 Euros (~$131).
70% Amazon Fire Kids Edition

Tablets can be a kid's favorite tool for fun and education, but without good parental controls, they can also be a parent's worst nightmare. Amazon delivers quality content and family-friendly protections that will make everyone happy. The Fire doesn't offer the zippiest performance or the longest battery life.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Amazon: The US online shop markets its own tablet computers
73.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
