Two fingers, not three

Although three fingers are supported on the iPad and other Android tablets, here's the Kindle Fire's two-finger max swipe support in action. Or in "nonaction"! Right everyone?!...No? Fine.

AccelerNOmeter

Riptide GP runs at a decent clip on the Kindle Fire. Good luck controlling it with any kind of accuracy, though.

The whole screen

That's also not the Kindle Fire. It's the iPad 2 running Assassin's Creed: Recollection, whose liberal use of screen real-estate makes a great case for gaming on a 10-inch tablet as opposed to a 7-inch one.

Shadowgun is (almost) everywhere

That's not the Kindle Fire. It's the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 running Shadowgun, which we easily downloaded from the Android Market. Not so easily done on the Kindle Fire. In fact, unless you have access to the game's APK or are interested participating in some illegal activities, it's damn near impossible to get.

Angry Birds, still angry

Angry Birds looks and plays as well as you'd expect. So the real question, though, is who's angrier: these cartoon birds or the motherflippin' Balrog?!

Balrog got next

Another 2D game, Cut the Rope, does little to tax the Kindle Fire. Also, there's a flippin' Balrog waiting to play next.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
