Amazon Kindle Fire HDX review (7-inch)

 

There was surprisingly little fanfare surrounding the announcement of Amazon's latest Fire tablets. Where last year's unveiling involved renting out an

Great screen ; Long battery life ; Lots of welcome enhancements to Fire OS

No Google Play access ; Starting price includes Special Offers ; No video-out port

Amazon's latest Kindle Fire brings a lot of welcome upgrades and is sure to be a big seller this holiday season.

From Good Enough to Great

 

Individual hardware specs no longer hold the sway they once did. In order for those CPU, GPU, and RAM numbers to be worth anything, you need an ecosystem. Seamless access to music, video, and books is how Apple, Google, and Amazon hope to woo you to...

Best content-consuming tablet on the market. You can now watch video offline. Battery lasts up to four days with normal usage. Mayday feature adds a unique personal touch to an otherwise boring tablet market. Industrial design, while reminiscent of a...

Forked version of Android means no easy access to Google Play Store. Incredibly easy access to all of Amazon’s commerce services could be bad news for your bank account

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7

 

Amazon's 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX is the simplest high-quality small-screen tablet you can buy, and ease of use doesn't come at the cost of performance.

Sharp screen. Fast processor. Extremely easy to use. Amazing live tech support.

Short battery life. Interface is very geared to buying things from Amazon.

Gorgeous display ; Amazon's ecosystem is incredible ; Mayday is amazing

There's no replacement for the Play Store ; Core apps still aren't perfect ; Some awkward design decisions

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 review

 

Editor's note (September 18, 2014): Amazon has introduced a new budget-friendly 7-inch tablet in the Kindle Fire HD 7.

Amazon's Kindle Fire HDX 7 is a performance monster that speeds through Web sites and UI pages at a frantic pace. The screen is impressively sharp and the small light design is comfy for reading books. Mayday is personal and near-instant customer...

The remote video viewing feature isn't ready at launch and ad removal still costs an extra $15. 16GB is too small for 1080p movies and there's no built-in storage expansion. The screen is tarnished by a yellowish tint and the buttons on the back are...

Armed with a powerful processor and Amazon's exhaustive content library, the Kindle Fire HDX delivers incredible value for its price, especially for Amazon Prime members.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX

 

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX packs a gorgeous 7-inch display, a very fast processor and one-touch tech support into a sleeker design.

Wonderfully speedy ; Fantastic full-HD screen; Built-in tech support; Great parental controls; Huge library of content; Good battery life

Limited browser options; No microSD card slot; Lacks back camera

The increasing number of very good sub-$200 tablets is making it harder to justify the premium for more expensive devices such as the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX. Nevertheless, this $229 (for base model) device is a fantastic value. You get a superior HD...

Review Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 Tablet

 

A brighter Fire. Now in its third generation, the Kindle Fire series shows no signs of burning out. It is still the go-to tablet for Amazon shoppers, but are the new hardware and software updates enough for Android fans to jump ship? We take a closer...

Bright 1920 x 1200 IPS display; Powerful SoC for the price; Smooth performance all-around; Good outdoor usability and contrast; Better build quality than the previous generation; Improved aesthetics; Now includes WWAN options and a front-facing camera;...

Moderate backlight bleeding; Build quality not as rigid as the first generation; No direct access to Android apps or Youtube videos; Rubberized surfaces attract dust and grease and can be hard to clean; No SD reader and the dedicated HDMI-out port has...

The display rivals that of the 2013 Nexus 7 as one of the best in its size class. The hardware is even better and its performance belongs in the upper echelon of available high-end tablets of larger display sizes.

You could call Amazon's Kindle Fire the anti-Nexus. While the new Kindle Fire HDX may be based on Android, it's resolutely designed to cater for avid customers of Amazon's store, tailoring just about every part of the experience to streamline your...

There’s a lot to like about the Kindle Fire HDX. The screen is superb, the form-factor sober but sturdy, and the processor cutting edge for the market. Amazon’s $229 starting price (with subsidizing Special Offers on the lockscreen, 16GB of storage,...

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 Review

 

With another year under its belt, electronic commerce giant Amazon is back with its latest budget level tablet in the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX – a force that intends to challenge Google's very own offering. Backed with all the usual sort of hardware...

High quality display ; Speedy performance ; Solid integration with Amazon’s ecosystem

Software experience is limiting ; Lacks rear camera

Knowing already what its competition has on the market, you’d think that Amazon would try to somehow one-up the Google Nexus 7 2013 Edition to become the premier 7-inch budget tablet offering heading into the upcoming holiday season. However, that’s...
