Clearly, it’s not meant for heavy productivity work, but for all of those other fun activities, such as reading books and watching movies, the Amazon Fire HD 6 is at the very least an effective thing for the enjoyment – more so thanks to the idea that it can be carried around in a bag or backpack inconspicuously.

Reviews Word on the street for the Amazon Fire HD 6


7.0
The Fire HD 6 is just $99 with offers (ads on the sleep screen) for the 8 gig version, though we strongly suggest you get the $119 16 gig model because the 4 gigs of available storage on the 8 gig model isn't enough to store a hearty music library and 3D games.

7.0
In particular, it’s sporting a 6-inch 800 x 1280 IPS LCD display, one that delivers good enough details for reading and whatnot.

Overall

7.0 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

It’s certainly far from the most attractive looking display, but considering the price point, the screen manages to be effective for a lot of things.

My review unit is super bright yellow (why do I always get the bright yellow review units)?
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
In fact, it doesn't even have auto-brightness; you'll control brightness manually using a slider.
by MobileTechReview (Oct, 2014)

Apps

This is where you'll access Amazon, games, apps, books, music, videos, newsstand, audiobooks, the web, photos, and docs – essentially everything FireOS has to offer, paginated for easy parsing.

Gaming and apps are okay, but you won't be using these tablets to get work done or manage email.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
But for reading, watching movies, light surfing, social networking, and casual gaming, it's really nice.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)

Size

That said, it's a little on the thick and heavy side for a device of this size.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
It's quite thick for such a small tablet.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
As thick as this tablet is, they could've at least found a way to put the speaker on the front.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)

Camera

Camera: Given the size, this is the first tablet that I wouldn't mind pulling out and grabbing a few pictures with...if the camera were worth using.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
Camera: I can confirm this tablet has a camera... but why?
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
The front camera is adequate for Skype and honestly looked better than expected given the VGA resolution.
by MobileTechReview (Oct, 2014)

Brightness

As for brightness, it gets bright enough.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
and it is definitely bright.
by Android Police (Nov, 2014)
I don't really think of the HD 7 as a tablet you'd carry around with you everywhere, so maybe you won't mess with the brightness that much if it just lives on your nightstand or in the living room.
