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

Extremely thin and light Excellent display Great battery life

No access to Google Play Store Fire OS limited compared to Android No expandable memory

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 review


Amazon has brought out not one, but two versions of itsnew Fire HDX tablet. The 7-inch screen version islikely to be the volume purchase, but is there a market forsomething with a bigger screen, an extra camera and a few tastyextras thrown in?

Sturdy but lightweight, terrific screen, slimmed down UI, fastprocessor, 8-megapixel camera

Not such as bargain as the 7-inch version, no Google Play appstore, no expandable memory

The larger HDX's specs put it into competition with the likes ofthe Google Nexus 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. It may not havethe versatility of either of those devices, or the iPad Air forthat matter, but it costs less, looks great and is extremely...
