Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch review

 

The Amazon Kindle HDX tablet has a trick up its sleeve…

New design ; Mayday app ; Content

Closed ecosystem ; Wi-Fi-reliant ; Blue tint on new display

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

A great option for Amazon users, but the appeal doesn't stop there

Decent capacity for the money ; simple layout ; promising web-browser ; HDMI output ; weighty sound ; good picture

Some features are hit-and-miss ; not as customizable as other Android tablets ; no GPS functionality

The Kindle Fire HD’s a great option for Amazon users, but the appeal doesn’t stop there

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

Can the Amazon Kindle Fire HD take on the Google Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini?

Sturdy build ; Screen is great for video ; Huge ebook selection

No 3G ; Backlit screen on books ; Slightly lacking in apps

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

The Kindle Fire HD is here – slimmer, sharper and speedier than its predecessor. But does it ignite our passions?

HD display packs a visual punch ; Does what it says on the tin ; 7in is the sweet spot for portability

Less apps and games to enjoy ; Makes internet shopping too easy

We have ignition. Amazon has sparked up the budget tablet market with the scorchingly media-friendly Kindle Fire HD

Amazon Kindle Fire review

 

With its combination of seamless Amazon shopping and recession-friendly pricing, the Kindle Fire is destined to be stuffed into millions of American stockings this Christmas. Yanks have overlooked its lack of GPS, camera and mobile data, focusing on...

Amazon Kindle Fire

 

Is it a jumped-up e-reader, a cut-price iPad or nothing more than a portable shop window for Amazon's endless shelves? The Kindle Fire blunders into the tablet wars with something to annoy everyone: an LCD screen to irritate E Ink fans; a GPS-less,...

Lovely 7-inch screen, cracking video, smooth UI, solid build, low price

Slow browsing, light on hardware features

Despite what you might have read elsewhere, the Kindle Fire is not an ereader with attitude. It’s too heavy, the Kindle app is no better than any other Android tablet out there, and the LCD screen gets old quickly.

Amazon Kindle Fire review

 

The progenitor of the Kindle Fire line still holds up

Great price ; Excellent custom UI ; Good build quality ; Great new browser

No cameras ; Erratic performance ; No Android Market ; Only 8GB storage without expansion

The Amazon Kindle Fire lives up to the hype and delivers more. It's by no mean perfect and there's a laundry list of missing features, but at £125, it's better value for money than any Android tablet and a viable alternative to the iPad.

Some limitations, but the Kindle Fire offers a lot for not much money

Amazon Kindle Fire (2012) review

 

Editors' note (September 25, 2013): The product reviewed here has been discontinued and replaced with a redesigned Kindle Fire HD .

The Kindle Fire (2012) improves on its predecessor in three key ways: faster performance, a better interface with cool new features, and a significant price reduction.

Designwise it's the same Fire from 2011 with no HD video support, no camera, no HDMI, no storage expansion, and no volume buttons.

The Kindle Fire (2012) takes it up a notch in value, but is tethered to the same design oversights of the original.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

 

A good value tablet with an excellent screen, HDMI output and LoveFilm support - but the Amazon interface is sluggish and inflexible

You might also be worried about reading on a backlit screen, but it isn't a huge problem: the IPS display is of superb quality, offering a maximum brightness of 452cd/m2 and a rich, saturated colour palette. That brightness means you can still read it...
