1. No Google Ecosystem Support
For those users who love the local version of some Google applications (such as Gmail and Maps) on their Android device, Kindle Fire can not meet their wishes. In order to get these kinds of localized Google applications, the users can only download via Amazon App Store or by the way of jailbreak.
2. No Native Exchange Support
Compared to the iPad, there is an obvious flaw of Kindle Fire which is that it has no support on native Exchange. For iPad users, they can easily connect the e-mail program to Exchange server. But for Kindle users who have such kind of needs, their requirements are unable to be met by Kindle.
3. No Volume Buttons and Home Button
In my opinion, the most obvious defects of Kindle Fire are that it doesn't have the basically volume buttons and Home button. This makes the users can not quickly turn on or off the sound and find the specific application. One has to adjust the sound into the dashboard, which is clearly not simple, intuitive and fast enough from the view of operation. And users can only find their wanted application icon among all the apps.
4. Messy Main Screen
Have to say, Kindle Fire's main screen is very messy. There is no sense of organization on which apps really need to be displayed on the main screen. It shows the user any application you've used last time. So I'd like to say that it is the worst part of design on all user interface elements of the whole system.
5. No Folders
Many users have a lot of Kindle books, but these books are presented in the form of bookcase in the Kindle interface. This is very inconvenient for users to find the right book. Have to say, Kindle Fire's homepage doesn't come with folders really bring users with a lot of inconvenience.
6. Glossy Outer
Glossy outer is now used in many devices. But Kindle Fire just comes with a over glossy one that once user keep it with a single-hand, then you will find it is easy to slip off to the ground. That's to say, you may need a cover or case to keep the device from the immediate contact with hand.
7. Touch Screen Accuracy
I found that the accuracy of this device's touch screen is not high, especially when you click on the bookshelves interface in the main screen. Once you click on an icon in the bookshelf, you may meet the situation that it opens another one rather than the one you have chosen.
8. No Bluetooth Support
Sometimes, even the small defects can also make it impossible to replace the low-end laptop with Kindle Fire, for example, does not have Bluetooth support. It cannot be justified or explained away that Kindle Fire lack of Bluetooth support since it was released mainly for promoting the multimedia content consumption.
9. Relatively Small Storage Space
It only has 8GB of onboard storage space, in which only 6GB is used to store the user's content. Although streaming media is very popular now, but the problem is that users are not able to coming with unlimited WiFi support all the time. If you want to upload a large number of films into the Kindle Fire for your travel, then you may feel a headache about its small storage space.
By the way, if you want to upload movies onto your Kindle Fire, you should first ensure that your movies are coming in MP4 format. If not, you may need the help of a third-party program like AVS Video Converter.
10. Undesirable Battery Life
Different from the Kindle e-ink readers, Kindle Fire is very current consuming. It is easy to consume battery life. Even it has 8 hours' standby time, it is far from enough if the users want to enjoy movies on it or listen to music with it.
Ok, all the weaknesses of Kindle Fire are given here. Hope this Kindle Fire Review can help you know better about Kindle Fire. Of course, Kindle Fire also has many strengths, you can just know from Kindle Fire features or Kindle Fire strength.
