I really like this Kindle Fire. It is easy to read and I play on it all the time. Too much time to be honest. I got mine in purple with all the accessories in purple also. Battery Life I most of the time have it plugged in. I can use it for long periods of time, while I check email or go to Amazon. Whatever, it will let me know when I need to plug it in if I don't already have it on. Processing Speed It doesn't take long for whatever I am looking for to come up. Just a few seconds for an app to come up. Weight It is a bit heavy for my hands, but I can lay it down and use it just fine. App Availability Lots of apps to find. The games are great. Design It looks good and sleek. The color is great and is easy to carry. The screen is clear and easy to read. To read a book on it is easy and turning the pages are quick. Durability I thought I lost this, but it had fallen down in my recliner. I found it when I couldn't get the recliner to lay back. It was stuck in there, I was worried it got damaged, but only the holder got messed up a bit. Works like a charm.
