Complete Amazon experience. Amazon caught the tablet world by storm when the retailer announced its first multimedia tablet for just $199 USD. Is the performance and hardware reflective of the budget price? or is the Kindle Fire greater than the sum of its parts?
Amazon Kindle Fire vs Kindle Fire HD comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Fire has thinner borders around the screen than the Fire HD, and looks less clunky and old fashioned. It still won't win any style awards, and it's not especially light at 400g - the same weight as the Fire HD, give or take. The Fire measures 189 x 120 x 11.5mm, making it 17mm shorter and a fraction thicker. Its design is different to the Fire HD in that it's very similar to a traditional E-ink Kindle, and designed to be used in portrait mode.

The Kindle Fire HD wasn't the best 7in tablet when it launched in 2012, and even at the new lower price, it can't really compete with newcomers including Tesco's Hudl. The Fire HD locks you into Amazon's world, which still lacks the breadth of choice compared with Google Play.

Amazon Kindle Fire vs Kindle Fire HD comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
Although a £129 tablet sounds tempting, the Kindle Fire isn't nearly as good as the Fire HD. It really is a no-brainer to spend the extra £30, since you get an extra 8GB of storage, a higher-resolution screen, better speakers, volume buttons, an HDMI output and twin antennae for the Wi-Fi radio (and Wi-Fi also works on 5GHz, which means it's much faster if you own a compatible router). Bear in mind that Google's Nexus 7 is more versatile than both Kindles and doesn't lock you into buying content from Amazon.

For Rs 14,000, the tab offers a good capacitive touchscreen, a long battery life, and decent multimedia options. However, the lack of an app store and Cloud support (for India) is a letdown. Moreover the sparse connectivity options also weakens the device's case as a good tablet. However, if you are looking for a budget tablet, the Kindle Fire is definitely is a better option than Reliance 3G Tab and the Spice Tab Mi-720.

The Kindle Fire: The End of Books?

Unless you have someone begging you for a tablet for the holidays, we suggest holding-off until after the new year, and waiting for Amazon's next tablet offering. Purchasing the Fire will make you an early adopter, rushing to buy a tablet from a company that is new to this game. Plus, with quad-core tablets like the Asus Transformer Prime now and/or soon hitting the market, you might be thankful that you waited.

Amazon Kindle Fire Review: Can $200 Buy a Great Tablet?
Source: PC Perspective English
Overall, the Fire strikes me as a tablet for people who don’t like tablets. It’s for the person who would never think of connecting an external keyboard. It’s for the person who doesn’t see the point of holding up a screen and swiping around to navigate the web when they can plop down in front of a PC. It’s for the person who wouldn’t touch Android gaming with a ten-foot pole. For this user, most of the Fire’s downsides are irrelevant, and it all comes down to watching movies, listening to music and reading books. My only question is - how many consumers fit this niche? I guess we’ll find out.

My out of the box experience with the Kindle Fire was not as good as I had expected. Sure, the very initial setup was a breeze, since it logged in my Amazon account automatically (which it won't do with devices bought at retail stores or ordered from Amazon as gifts), but the user interface somewhat got in my way, and the touchscreen didn't always seem to respond well in my first hour of use. Having to hunt down the missing hardware button functionality for home and volume also took some getting used to. But after a day or so of using it, I'm pretty much settled in. I initially thought I would end up returning the Kindle Fire, but now I think I'm going to keep it. I like its media consumption abilities, and I like the compact form factor.

The Kindle Fire is a device that does exactly what Amazon wanted it to: it is affordable and provides an easy way to consume more content from Amazon. This is definitely not a “killer” for larger and faster tablets, but at the very basic level, it is a good multimedia player with a store access, and it is basically the best mobile interface to Amazon.com.

The Kindle Fire is one of a kind, at least this week. It's the first affordable, easy-to-use general-purpose tablet. It doesn't replace the Apple iPad: It complements the iPad, which is bigger, more powerful, more expensive, and has far more apps. While there are other good small tablets out there, most notably the Acer Iconia Tab A100, they're also more expensive and just more fiddly. While geeks have more options with a "generic" Honeycomb tablet, non-geeks get less guidance as to what to do with them.

Is the $199 Amazon Kindle Fire a Good Tablet Option for Students?
Source: Student Buying Guide English
At the end of the day you have to decide what your needs are and which tablet device might suit you better. Sure, there are a ton of other tablet options out there, but frankly I think it’s going to come down to Apple and Amazon being the big players in the tablet market. If you’re starting to shop for a tablet these are the two to start with when looking. If you need a fully fledged tablet that would allow for video chat, using productivity apps and taking advantage of a vast library of software already available then the iPad is the way to go if you can afford it. If you just want something for being able to browse the web or watch movies on the go, so long as you know you’ll have access to wi-fi where you plan to use it, the Amazon Kindle Fire is a good fit.

It's a tough choice. On one hand, the Kindle is perfect for those on a budget as it's cheap, has a long battery life and plenty of content. However, for an extra £25, we're tempted to go with the Sony Reader as it's lighter, has better build quality and touch-screen functionality that makes it so much easier to use.

Before anyone gets confused and starts comparing this with the likes of the Google Nexus 7 and the other Android tablets out there, it is imperative to specify that this tablet is made to work in the Amazon ecosystem. While it may be Android at the very basic level, the Amazon skin completely takes over. Excellent hardware and display make this a very good device to read text on, and the gaming performance is impressive. Buy this, if you want to invest in the Amazon ecosystem of books and apps, because there is no access to Google's Play store.

Should you choose the Kindle Fire HD or the Kindle Fire HD 8.9? There are three key factors: price, screen size and weight. The 7in Kindle Fire HD costs £159 for a 16GB device, and £199 for 32GB. Move up to 8.9in and the prices are £229 and £259. For that extra cash you get a bigger screen that has better resolution - so if watching HD movies is your thing it may be worth the outlay. But if you are a bookworm, the 7in device will offer a better, lighter reading experience. And save you some pennies.

At the beginning of this review I mentioned that I had two tablets already, which I never use. I think the main reason is their size. They are larger tablets, are a pain to take with me places and at that size I am more productive on an Ultrabook. The Kindle Fire HD is different, its small, easy to take with me places and for what I really want to do on it (read & watch movies) it is perfect. The fact that it is tied into the Amazon ecosystem is not really an issue for me and I would consider myself an advanced user. At $199 for the 16GB version I think you are getting a great tablet that is going to do everything you want and has a great ecosystem behind it for constant new content.

If you want a tablet with which to actually do things, the Nexus 7 is the only option here. The other two are consumption devices - designed to be used to enjoy music, movies, games and books, as well as email, social media and web browsing. The Nexus 7 also offers greater variety in the places from which you can source media. But it is not nearly as easy to use as the other two. If you want a simple to use device with which to entertain yourself, you can't go wrong with the Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD.

For people who want a tablet purely as a way to watch films, read ebooks, play music and browse the web this puts everything within one tap of the touchscreen. It's keenly priced and attractive enough to feel like a serious bit of kit. We'd like a 3G version, but there's no doubt the 16GB or 32GB Wi-Fi-only versions will be a massive hit this Christmas.

Overall winner: Nexus 7 Having put all three devices to the test, we have to say the clear loser is the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Boasting average performance and grating software, the tablet doesn't live up to the standards set by its iPad Mini and Nexus 7 competition, even if it is cheap. That said for new users not embedded within any ecosystem, we have to say the Nexus 7 does offer better value for money, costing £100 less than the iPad Mini while boasting better performance, albeit with slightly less solid build quality.

Well, both Kindle Fire HDX models sport Qualcomm's mighty quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (the same silicon powering the beastly LG G2, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra), which is clocked in at 2.2GHz: the fastest of any tablet on the market.

It would be easy to criticise the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 for lacking numerous features available on rival tablets, but that would be missing the point. While the likes of Samsung and Sony offer similar digital media services with their tablets, Amazon is the only rival that comes close to matching the sense of calm, security and family-friendliness that's been such a major selling point of the iPad. For some, the Wild West nature of Android is its greatest asset, but for others, quite the opposite. If you're in the latter camp and don't like the taste of Apple, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 should be top of your shopping list.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 inch

Amazon has followed up their 7 inch version of the Kindle Fire HDX with a brand new 8.9 inch device that keeps all the best things about the device alive and adds better specs, while still managing to keep this device one of the lightest 8.9 inch devices available. The competitive price quickly became a standard of Kindle devices. And so are the Mayday button (get an Amazon representative on the screen for help within 15 seconds) and, for Amazon Prime members, one of the THE best content markets out there today. One might be surprised to find that the price undercuts the iPad Air by a large margin, while serving up comparable features.

Weighing in at just 0.37 kg, despite the larger 8.9 inch size, there's no doubting the portability of this device. Running Mojito, which is based on Android Jelly Bean, it is designed to be a smooth, well thought out experience. The 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and Krait 400 CPU should allow for trouble free performance even during more demanding apps. The screen is an impressive affair, with a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution and high-end 339 dpi. This should give a crystal clear and sharp display, along with the powerful Adreno 330 GPU. Overall, this is a great top of the line device that's available for a good price. But if one isn't an Amazon Prime member, it may not be worth it because there is no access to Google Play.

The HDX 8.9 is certainly a safe option. Bigger than an iPad Mini Retina, cheaper than an iPad Air or Galaxy Note 10.1, it's an outstanding middle-of-the-road option, and that's not as much of a contradiction as it would seem. Tidier and simpler than the regular Android option, the HDX 8.9 will please those looking for a no-fuss tablet solution, but if you stretch the budget just a little bit further you could have the best from Apple or Samsung. For this reason the far cheaper HDX 7 makes a lot more sense to us.

Source: V3.co.uk English
The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 undoubtedly is Amazon's best tablet to date. However, with its Fire OS offering an unfamiliar user interface and lacking in its app selection, we're not sure it's quite ready to compete against the iPad Air and Google Nexus 10. The tablet has a market leading screen and a wonderfully thin and light design, but we found ourselves reverting back to our iPad due to the poor selection of apps in the Kindle App Store.

Amazon certainly improved its Kindle Fire tablets with the release of the Kindle Fire HDX, and in the case of the 8.9-inch version, it’s now able to offer an experience that can easily rival its competitors and even larger tablets. With that said, we feel the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 would be best in the hands of someone who doesn’t know their way around Android tablets, but wants the best of what’s currently available. The Fire OS keeps things extremely simple as you can access much of Amazon’s digital goods straight from the home screen, while also being able to purchase books, magazines and other digital goods with ease.

For all that, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9in is a device that anyone in the market for a larger tablet should consider. The display is fantastic, it's amazingly light, the performance and battery life are simply superb, and we certainly can't fault its all-round usability. If you don't mind the Amazon lock-in, it's a fabulous tablet – with much better hardware than on anything we've seen from an Android tablet so far, and a tempting price. But we'd advise waiting to see what the second-generation Nexus 10 brings before taking the plunge.

If you want a solid and powerful multimedia tablet that is essentially a gateway to all things Amazon, this is your tablet. But if you're looking for something with more flexibility and better hardware, you're better off buying an iPad Air. The only thing you'll have to consider is whether you can justify the extra cost.

The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 comes with a lot of very good hardware features, but at £329 it’s not particularly cheap. For £10 less you can get the iPad mini 2 Retina – granted that’s an inch of screen less, but it does come with the glorious app store in tow. Alternatively the Kindle Fire HDX 7 costs just £199 and is almost the same tablet, barring the significantly smaller display. The Fire HDX 8.9 is a great start for anyone just entering the world of tablets. If you (or whoever you're considering it for) have never had an iPad or Android tablet then you’ll get to grips with the Kindle very quickly -- perhaps more quickly than with the other two. Mayday is undoubtedly the star of the show, it’s like a little genie solving all your tablet frustrations with instant, accurate and friendly advice.

The Fire line just keeps getting better. Just as the HD marked a big improvement over the first generation, the HDX brings a number of premium features that puts Amazon's offerings on par with some of the best tablets. The screen is great; processing power has been bumped up considerably; there's finally a rear-facing camera; and the hardware is markedly slimmer.

The Kindle Fire is not a hard-core productivity tablet; it's designed mostly for consuming media from Amazon. While it's certainly possible to load it up with your own content and office apps, that isn't what its super-simple interface is made for. You might notice that in general, the HDX has better specs than the iPad Air at a lower price. It's just less ambitious from a software perspective, which makes it a better tablet for some people but makes the iPad a better tablet for more people.

But if you’re a faithful Amazon customer looking for something more substantial than the 7-inch Fire, the lightweight 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX is the tablet to consider. The bigger screen is worth the extra money, and you don’t lose any performance, just some portability. And even though it’s more expensive than its smaller kin, it’s still a great value among full-size tablet options.

80% Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 review: Unapologetically content-driven
Source: TechHive.com English
With the Fire HDX, the Kindle acquires the first early pangs of an identity crisis. If it has the form of a full-size productivity device, shouldn’t it try to be one? Naw. It has its own identity and it has a valuable role to play. Apple described the case of the iPhone 5c as not just “plastic,” but “unapologetically plastic.” Amazon should do the same with the Kindle. It’s unapologetically content-driven. They’ve improved the screen and the sound and the OS features to make this the most pleasant device for enjoying other people’s creativity. It’s definitely not the best full-size tablet for sweating through a full day of work. But it might be the best tablet for recovering from one.

If you’re already an Amazon customer, or are willing to make it your ecosystem of choice, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is our choice of the company’s tablets. Priced from $379 for the WiFi-only model (add $100 if you want LTE support) it’s competitively priced, and it could handle anything we threw at it; Amazon’s roadmap of feature updates like second-screen support will only make it better, particularly if you’re a Prime customer.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 inch

This third generation of the Kindle Fire range could be one of the best tablets available out there today. The design is well thought out; with a good balance and weight that enables comfortable one handed use. The placement of the power and volume buttons on the back of the device is a little out of the way in landscape mode, and laying it on a surface will mean that the user will have to pick up the device in order to wake it from sleep mode. The touchscreen is nice and accurate and the experience of using it for web browsing and everyday tasks and entertainment is without trouble. The 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with the Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU, makes for a snappy machine that handles any task thrown at it with no troubles.

Mayday is a feature that is an interesting improvement on regular customer service - a user in trouble can video chat with a service rep who can remotely control the device to help with any issues the user may have. This 7 inch tablet features a dense 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution making it vibrant though there is unfortunately a slight yellowish cast to the whites. Thanks to high-end hardware, most demanding games run smoothly on the tablet with maximum settings. Overall it might be a good device, but should mainly be considered by those who already are Amazon Prime members or those who are considering becoming members in order to max out its use. Otherwise, it would probably be best to consider the competition.

If you are heavily invested (intellectually and financially) in Amazon's content ecosystem of books, music, film, magazines and audio books, then the Kindle Fire HDX will deliver a rich experience. If you've spread your content around or don't really want to haul it out of other silos, or are just looking for a handy pocket-sized tablet, then you might find it somewhat claustrophobic.

This is a real Nexus 7 alternative. As long as standing at the cutting edge of new apps isn’t a big priority the HDX has you well and truly covered, from browsing to cloud storage to buying books, music and magazines. Bringing a new, pepped up Fire OS, zinging along on a Snapdragon 800 and with a crisp, dazzling screen, this 7in Kindle Fire is even up there with the iPad Mini for the best hardware we’ve seen on a small tablet. But in a world that already includes the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini it takes something special to standout, and the Kindle Fire HDX certainly does that. That's thanks in no small part to the genius Mayday button, which is probably what every other Android tablet manufacturer is hitting right about now.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX is Amazon’s most powerful tablet yet, boasting specs that can match the Google Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini without even breaking a sweat.

If on the other hand you want the simple life and you want a true media player that will give you an almost inexhaustible supply of books, music and video then the Kindle is the tablet for you.

The Kindle Fire HDX. It wins on the strength of its superior interface and software/content, though it excels in other matters, too. I found myself using the Fire HDX more often than the Nexus 7 to watch movies and to read on the train ride home. Its smaller size and convenient content carousel help guide you to exactly what you’re most likely to use a tablet for, without having to sift through a library of apps or spend hours setting it up. The HDX is also a keen choice for technologically challenged family members, as it offers better out-of-the-box functionality.

The difference between the Kindle Fire and Google's Nexus 7 is really one of philosophy. The Nexus 7 is a blank slate which you can customize to your whims. The Kindle Fire is a cheerful personal shopper. We're PCMag.com, so the Editors' Choice goes to the more flexible Nexus 7. But if configuring and supporting Android 4.3 on the Nexus 7 is a bit too much of a pill to swallow, the Kindle Fire (with its Mayday advisors always just a touch away) will go down as easy as a spoonful of sugar.

There’s another shoe waiting to drop: a likely iPad refresh. I don’t expect to see Apple lower the price of the 16GB iPad mini below its current $329. For the life of me, I don’t know what Apple could do to enhance the iPad mini to make me recommend it over the Fire HDX, provided that the person asking my advice had little interest in productivity or gaming. A 7-inch Fire HDX will give you a superior content experience and leave $100 in your pocket—which you can spend on books, music, and movies.

Luckily for Amazon, the potential audience of its customers keeps growing, though. The Kindle Fire HDX ticks the right boxes across the board, in that case: ebooks look great and can be read for longer; movies and TV shows will soon have the clever Second Screen functionality; and Prime subscribers get the benefit of offline playback. It’s fast, portable, and well constructed, and if you’ve bought into the Amazon ecosystem – or are looking for a one-stop-shop in which to set up your digital life, that isn’t Apple – then the Kindle Fire HDX makes a compelling argument to be that shopfront.

80% Kindle Fire HD (2013) review: The Kindle Fire HD is Amazon's 7-inch budget Android tablet
Source: PC Advisor English
The Fire HD feels like a step backwards from the model it replaces: there's no camera, no HDMI output, half the storage and shorter battery life. It's faster, though, and has a slicker operating system which is now child friendly thanks to FreeTime. You're still limited to Amazon's app store which lacks the choice you get with Google Play, but it still makes a great kids' tablet.
