I am writing this review of the Fire Tablet with Alexa 7” display 8 GB. On March 16th 2016 I bought a new Kindle for $53 I am a student and on a limited budget but I used my Kindle for school.
On August 2016 the Kindle died, the battery just overheated it was warm to the touch, so I called Amazon and they said they would send me a new one. A few days later the 2nd kindle appeared. On November 29th this kindle overheated and I called amazon again “well…. The warranty has expired (it only lasts for three months) but you can buy another one for $10” and send us your old one.
I use my Kindle a lot so I bought a new one for $10. Then on March 14 2016 the 3rd kindle overheated. I called amazon again and they said, sorry but we can’t do anything about it, I asked them what I was supposed to do with a dead kindle and they said well you can sell it back for 5 dollars.
When I asked to speak to their supervisor they put me on hold for a while then the supervisor hung up on me. Now, almost exactly a year later I have gone through three kindles each one had the same malfunction, they all overheated after about 3 months and now it’s my fault I am out $50 because Amazon’s 2015 kindle has a production flaw and the batteries overheat.
