Great value

5 out of 5 stars

It's great value and a great way to use Amazon’s services including video and music – as well as Alexa.
It’s an excellent choice for kids or undemanding adults.

Love it but wish buttons were bigger

4 out of 5 stars

I have several Kindles, but rarely use mine now. The power and volume control buttons are small and difficult to press, especially if you are using a cover (which you really need to).
The apps are ok, there are lots of free ones, and although some of the free ones do need you to buy content most don't.
I do use the Kindle App on my PC.
The menus are easy to manage as they are accessed through swipes.

I wish there was a cover that enhanced the buttons. I also wish it was easier to change the font and app size on the screen to make them easier to see, but everything is fixed size.

If there was a helpful cover that augmented the buttons, and a way to increase font (or a "magnifying glass" option), it would be easier to use.

I think the Kindle is very reliable. I have more than one, and have had them for years... without any issues at all. Amazon was really helpful when I did have a problem with one when I first bought it.

I feel all in all the kindle is excellent value for money.

This tablet is ideal for people who dont have a very steady grip as its size makes it easy enough to hold steady but not too large to be cumbersome. The print is a good size and it is very useful for just popping into your handbag, you can use it as a Kindle, For Facebook, emails etc, mine was very reasonable price at £49.99 and because it is a brand name very easy to buy accessories for, ie, cover etc.

very quick and simple to purchase online

It has never let me down and battery takes quite a short time to charge

Compared to similar products this is very reasonably priced.

Difficulties

1.7 out of 5 stars

This purchase was not my best. After my Kindle broke I thought a new touchscreen would make life easier but the apps on the screen were small so with my arthritis it was difficult to hit the right part of the screen, the swipes were too fast, entering the Amazon store section was very difficult the book titles and selecting payments meant I often would hit the buy when I wanted a sample of the book sent to the kindle as the pictures were too close together. I purchased a pen for the screen but I had difficulties holding the pen. The screen and the apps are just too small and it's all too fiddly trying to get a magnifier, the pen, hold the kindle or position it right. Its a bit of a nightmare once you've gone through all that and then the battery life is very short so you are charging more on this, more money of electricity. So this didn't work on so many levels for me.

It takes a while to switch on, small buttons can make it difficult. The apps are to small, the batter life again makes it difficult to take on long journeys to read so it dies on you.

Battery life is to short. You have to delete lots of apps or downloads to make space for any new books or samples.

I felt a bit cheated with this product. The battery life is poor, the WI-FI access is not good when you leave the house. I found there were pointless apps on here that I didn't need but can't remove them. I am disappointed in the speed of loading books compared to the basic kindle. I feel the way you have to make a choice with the samples quickly because you cannot upload new things ie the space data need clearing to often, means you cannot downloads free bokos and samples as much.

Not accessible for a person with a visual impairment

3 out of 5 stars

I bought this tablet but I hardly use it because of accessibility issues so I found it a waste of my money.
