Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7

 

Amazon's best tablet yet is still let down by the disappointing app support

Nice, bright screen ; Great Mayday support ; Easy to use

Blue tint at the edges of screen ; HDMI dropped ; Disappointing app support

It’s not perfect though. There is a blueish tint around the edges of the screen, particularly noticeable when looking at completely white backgrounds. According to Amazon its presence is down to the way it creates that ‘100% sRGB colour accuracy' on...

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7

 

The Amazon Kindle HDX 7 is an excellent tablet made with Amazon users in mind, but Android fans could find it a little restrictive

Stunning screen ; Lightweight design ; Detailed music performance ; Fast ; Mayday customer service is nice touch ; Good battery life

Locked into the Amazon ecosystem ; No access to Google Play

With its fantastic screen, fast navigation and excellent multimedia performance, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 is a fantastic tablet that impresses in so many ways but fails in one big one: choice.

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 HDX 7 review

 

Amazon's 7-inch Kindle Fire excels at one thing: Amazon

Mayday is innovative ; Great screen ; Fast performance

Dark spots on screen ; Poor browser ; Dated games

If you're heavily invested in Amazon's ecosystem, or want a hassle free (yet limited) UI, the Kindle HDX 7 could be the perfect tablet, but anyone looking for flexibility in their slate needs to look elsewhere.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7" review

 

Choosing which tablet to buy has never been harder than now, when there are so many high-quality models at very different prices. Tesco's £119 Hudl has proved amazingly popular despite not having the best screen in the world.

The Fire HDX is an accomplished tablet with excellent performance and a great screen, but one that suffers from a couple of problematic flaws. The blue light leakage will annoy some people who like to read a lot, while the lack of apps will trip up...

Three of the latest smaller-sized slates were put to the test in our tablet round-up, including Amazon's £179.99 Kindle Fire HDX 7. Can Amazon's latest tablet pull through the rigorous testing of hotel inspector Alex Polizzi? Take a look at the video...

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 review

 

With sucha plethora of Android tablets around ittakes a lot to stand out. But is a revamped version of Amazon'sKindle operating system and a few extra offerings enough to beatthe likes of the Google Nexus 7?

Sturdy but lightweight, terrific screen, slimmed down UI, fastprocessor

No Google Play, no expandable memory

If you choose a Kindle tablet you probably don't want to botherwith the sometimes confusing world of standard Android, andAmazon's simplified, iOS-style interpretation of the interfacedelivers that. Yes, you can add the Kindle app to any other...

Kindle Fire HDX 7 review: You Can Do A Lot With 7-Inches

 

More than any other year, this Christmas will be the Christmas of the tablet. Tablets are the number one gift on most people's lists, and the technology companies know it, which is why consumers have more choices than ever in the post-PC world. Among...

Beautiful display. Small, compact size. Perfect for general internet use and those who have invested heavily in Amazon’s ecosystem.

Does not support the Google Play store. This is an issue that could make this tablet a non-starter for many people

I love the look and feel of the 7-inch Kindle HDX a lot more than I do the 8.9-inch model. It just feels “right” in the hand and the screen looks so darn good. The problem I have with it, however, is the same problem I had with the 8.9-inch model: its OS.

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.
