Amazon Fire review

 

It's so cheap they're selling it in multi-packs

Family friendly ; Sturdy design Fantastically cheap

Poor selection of apps ; Questionable OS design ; Dated screen

With a nice robust design and innovative family features the Amazon Fire tablet is great for kids, but with a poor screen, lack of some core apps and confusing user interface it's not for everyone.

Amazon Fire review

 

£50 for a tablet. Sounds like a great deal, right?

Cheap as chips ; Good battery life ; Sturdy build

Laggy processor ; Weak screen

A cut-price tablet that's understandably rough around the edges

Amazon Fire Phone review revisited

 

A cynical, overpriced phone that's full of adverts and is clunky and difficult to use in almost every way

Amazon Fire phone review

 

Even now, over four months after it launched, the Fire Phone remains exclusive to O2 if you want a phone on a contract. You can buy a "phone only" version from Amazon directly and prices have dropped £100 since launch: it now costs £299 for the 32GB...

The Fire phone has a few things going for it, but far too many against it. The choice of apps is more limited than Android or iOS, and the hardware itself isn't exactly a bargain, even at the new lower prices. For roughly the same money on contract you...

Nice try Jeff, but no.

Innovative software ; Dynamic Perspective works well

Huge Amazon lock-in ; Overpriced ; No Google apps

Overall though, despite offering adequate performance, the Fire Phone’s display is a bit of a let down. Considering the SIM-free cost is $649 and akin to the absolute best handsets on the market, there’s no reason consumers should settle for anything...

Amazon Fire review: In Depth

 

Ben Griffin checks out the £400 Amazon blower, the Fire phone, sporting a strange 3D interface and 24-hour live help.

Reasonable battery life ; Aesthetically pleasing ; 24/7 help is unrivalled

No back button ; Fewer apps ; Overpriced ; No Full HD

Amazon has had plenty of time to bring out a decent smartphone and certainly deep enough pockets to do its research. In many ways, the Fire phone is likable. The camera and hardware are solid and there are elements of the OS we started to appreciate....

Amazon Fire Phone Review: First Look

 

Amazon's just released its first smartphone. It has six cameras, a 3D interface and helps you buy Amazon products. Go figure. Read our review »

Right now, Amazon’s new Fire Phone looks to be a US exclusive, more specifically an AT&T exclusive, available for $199 on a two-year plan and comes with a year's free Amazon Prime subscription. But plans for this new slice of Amazonian mobile tech to...

Amazon Fire review: Ridiculous bargain or a waste of £50?

 

Amazon's £50 tablet leaves you in no doubt why it's so cheap, but that doesn't make it unusable

The Fire has a 7in IPS display, although the thick frame makes it look smaller than it is. Come to the Fire from a 2013 Nexus 7 or even the 2013 Fire HD and you would swear that it had a tiny 6in panel. And, just when you thought 800 x 1,280 was...

Amazon Fire Phone review

 

Amazon attempts to light up the competition with its first smartphone, the Fire Phone

If it were retailing for nearer £150 SIM-free, the Fire Phone wouldn’t be a bad budget phone – viewed in that context, the combination of decent performance and an excellent screen would make its flaws far easier to forgive.
