Review: Amazon Fire HDX 8.9

 

With its sharp and colorful screen, excellent audio performance, and state-of-the-art components, Amazon's affordable flagship tablet is a winner.

Tack-sharp, vibrant screen. Superb battery life. Top-notch stereo speakers. An immersive headphone experience with Dolby Atmos. Great integration with Amazon services. Unlimited cloud storage for Amazon content makes the 16GB version doable. 24/7 video...

App ecosystem lags behind iOS and Android, and Google apps could fill in big gaps. The best deal is an 16GB version with lock-screen ads, but the an ad-free 32GB HDX jumps up to $444. Doesn’t look any different than the last one. Firefly doesn’t always...

Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 review: a pretty one-way path

 

With the mid-size tablet genre being redefined, Amazon has stepped in with their latest, an 8.9-inch HDX version of the Fire tablet. Taking square aim at the iPad mini and Air, as well as the Nexus 9, this tablet brings a familiar set of specs and...

Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 Review

 

With Amazon's Fire HDX 8.9 you get a brilliant screen, long battery life and great parental controls for less money than the iPad Air 2.

Amazon Fire HDX 8.9" (2014)

 

Amazon's Fire HDX 8.9" is the best value tablet for media out there, but its ecosystem doesn't match up to other operating systems for general-purpose use.

Easy to use. Light, durable body. High-res screen. Solid audio. Excellent technical support

Tied tightly to Amazon's services. Limited storage in the initial configuration

Do you like to watch? Amazon's Fire HDX ($379, 16GB) is the ideal media tablet, designed for lots of reading, listening, and watching TV and movies—especially (but not always) if you purchase that media from Amazon. Performance is decent for games and...

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

 

Editor's note (September 18, 2014): Amazon refreshed the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 with a 2014 version . Check out our hands-on review and back to CNET soon for a more in-depth look at the upgrade.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is a performance monster that speeds through Web sites and UI navigation at a frantic pace. Its screen is impressively sharp and its body amazingly light for a larger tablet. The Mayday feature gives personal and...

The remote video viewing feature won't be ready at launch, and ad-free versions still cost an extra $15. The 16GB of space runs out quickly when storing HD movies, and there's no built-in storage expansion. Lack of Google Play access means many apps...

With everything that was great about the HDX 7 and more, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 isn't just a great value, it sets the standard for a media consumption tablet.

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-inch tablet review: Great hardware, but no iPad slayer yet

 

Summary: The larger HDX tablet boasts some impressive specs and Amazon fans will feel right at home, although others may miss the wider range of apps found elsewhere. Business users will enjoy its e-reader capabilities.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9"

 

The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is the simplest-to-use high-quality, large-screen tablet, with built-in, on-demand tech support. And it's the best choice for handling your Amazon content.

Fast. Gorgeous screen. Very easy to use. 24-hour, on-demand video tech support

Lousy cameras. Not as many apps as standard Android tablets or iPads. Interface very focused on buying things from Amazon

Tired of asking for tech support? Tired of giving tech support? The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" comes with its own support team built into the tablet, an array of chipper, headset-wearing folks collectively known as Mayday. It's the best large-screen...

A Bigger Step Forward

 

Since its launch two years ago , the Kindle Fire has developed a reputation as a budget tablet. The mostly plastic construction and the low price (Kindle Fire pricing starts at $139 for the cheapest 7-incher) give it the whiff of a second-tier device,...

Class-leading display. Great battery life; expect ten hours or more. Light enough to hold for an entire episode of Breaking Bad without fatigue. Video-chat customer support is helpful, easy. I recommend getting the cool, origami-esque accessory case

Rear-camera is predictably lame. No Google Play access. Button position may flummox some, but I got used to them after a few days

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX review (8.9-inch)

 

In 2011, Amazon surprised us with the Kindle Fire, an Android-based 7-inch tablet that made it easier than ever to watch video, read books, and of course buy stuff from Amazon. It came at a time when smaller tablets were not very common or popular, and...

Gorgeous high-res screen ; Super lightweight ; Great battery life

Doesn’t have Play Store access ; Fire OS is a tad too basic ; Isn’t a looker

This year, it's more speed, more pixels, and less weight
