Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

 

Great screen, great speakers... shame about the apps

Great screen, Excellent performance, Loud and clear speakers, Mayday and Freetime apps clever and innovative, Very thin and light, Good battery life

Fire OS too restrictive, Poor app store, Occasionally glitchy apps, Extra storage is pricey

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 review

 

A gateway to all things Amazon, it's a strong performer that just feels a little restricted to hold its own against competitors

Good design Great screen Strong video and music performances

No access to Google Play Amazon ecosystem is heavy-handed

There’s a lot to love about the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. In terms of performance, it’s up there with the best of them, with a great screen, a good way with music and movies and a strong battery life. But its locked-in ecosystem isn’t going to be for...

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 review

 

The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9's little brother has already scored top marks with Stuff. Can the bigger, pricier sibling turn on the same charm?

Light ; Family-friendly ; Easy access to media services

Not the best app store ; Interface could be slicker ; Can be beaten for value and quality

A neatly rounded entertainment option but there's better value and higher quality to be found either side of the HDX 8.9.

Doing it Amazon's way on a bigger screen

8.9 inch HD display ; Fast performance ; Parental controls ; Dual speakers

Fire OS ; Amazon app store ; Limited storage ; Firefly is buggy

An accessible, competitively-priced window into Amazon's world for the whole family, the Fire HDX 8.9 has a class-leading display and excellent speakers. Sadly the performance, the choice of apps, and the quality of what's there let it down.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 review

 

An excellent tablet that is essentially a portal to all things Amazon

Mayday live assist ; Great display ; Good battery life ; Excellent design

Heavy on Amazon services ; Lack of Android apps ; Poor camera ; Browser doesn't support Flash

A great tablet for all things Amazon, but not much else

We review the Amazon Fire HDX 8.9, a brilliant slim-n-light rival to the iPad Air – providing you buy into Amazon's ecosystem. Amazon's Fire HDX...

Super-sharp screen ; 4G support ; Slim and very light

No Google Play

As a media and all-round entertainment machine, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is a solid rival for the iPad Air 2. However, there is a caveat, and that’s the tablet’s deep roots in Amazon’s ecosystem.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has a gorgeous screen and superb battery life but is still hampered by Fire OS

Review: Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is faster sequel with future-forward features

 

The Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is user-friendly iPad alternative packed to the brim with useful features and a dapper design.

The Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is the first tablet with Dolby Atmos audio-enhancing technology and Amazon's item-identifying Firefly function. Its user-friendly operating system includes Mayday instant customer service, extensive parental controls and the...

Amazon's curated app store has far fewer apps and games than Google and iOS app stores. The heavily modified OS leaves little room for customization and there's no microSD card slot.

Impressive Amazon features and an outstanding display make the the Fire HDX 8.9 one of the best and most affordable media consumption tablets.

Amazon's best Kindle Fire yet, but the gorgeous screen and great camera can't offset the custom Android interface
