Bottom Line

The Amazon Fire HD 6 has a lot to offer regarding preloaded content for kids and parental controls for adults and what it lacks in performance, it makes up for in a good display and long battery life.


The Amazon Fire HD 6 is a 2014 6-inch tablet that received praise for its software which includes lots of preloaded content for kids and control features for adults. Parents were very happy with the HD IPS screen that offers great picture quality and decent viewing angles even under the bright sun. At 9 hours, the battery life was also lauded. On the other hand, poor cameras and lack of an SD-card slot for storage expansion weighed down the device. The Amazon Fire HD 6 is a very good learning and gaming companion for kids above 3 years old.

Critic Reviews

  • TrustedReviews January 27, 2016

    The Amazon Fire HD 6 is one of the first sub-7-inch tablets we’ve seen. It uses a 6-inch screen, giving it proportions that kids are more likely to get on with. Just as important, it’s also cheap.

    The Amazon Fire HD 6 Kids Edition is best understood as a simple container for Amazon's FreeTime subscription kids' books and videos. One that's covered by a no-questions-asked two-year warranty.
