Reviews Word on the street for the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7


8.3
Calendar includes a number of sensible improvements that for the most part makes the interface a more efficient and gratifying experience.

7.5
Essentially, in addition to modifying the brightness, it also adjusts the contrast to better make it suitable for the scenario.

8.0
It weighs just 10.7 ounces, so it's light enough to carry day to day without adding much weight to your bag.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Frankly, we’re just humbled that it maintains its clarity in all viewing angles – plus still being visible outdoors with the sun present.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2013)
Details aside, this new LCD panel produces colors that are more lively (though cooler) than before, but best of all, the company has employed this new Dynamic Image Contrast system that enables it to adapt with indoor and outdoor usage.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2013)
The display comparison between the Apple iPad Mini 2 (you know, the one with Retina display), the Google Nexus (2013) and the 7-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HDX has taken a massive step forward this year, simply because things have become so much more powerful.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)

Type

We noticed that the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX has the best screen for movies and photos, which is down to two things: dynamic contrast and using quantum dot technology.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
The HDX is frighteningly fast at everything.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
The Kindle Fire HDX we tested was a WiFi model, so we can't speak for the LTE version, but it's easy to get 9-10 hours of video watching, web surfing and all around media consumption from Amazon's tablet.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)

Apps

It's a high speed gateway to Amazon's world of stuff, all of it ready to ship right to your door, as well as music, movies and games to download or stream.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
For music and radio you've got essentials like Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, Sitcher Radio, Soundcloud and a few more.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
But while it's lightning fast and a great way to enjoy books, magazines, comics, music and movies, it comes up short in the places where the best tablets truly impress: third-party apps and a whiz bang customizable interface.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)

Operating System

It's fast enough at loading content, but offerings from Apple and Android offer far richer, better looking experiences.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
With the Kindle Fire HDX, it's also built an excellent Android tablet, from a hardware perspective, at least.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
While simplicity is nice, the Fire's UI feels awfully stripped down and impersonal if you're coming from Android, iOS or a Windows platform.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)

Operating system

Even though Apple's iBooks comes close, that fact that you can read a book you bought on Amazon through the Kindle app on iOS, Android and Windows platforms makes it the more open platform and a more sound investment.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
It provides a unified area for keep tracking of all the happenings across your tablet, but it's a bit underpowered compared to Android and iOS.
by TechRadar (May, 2014)
The frame rate is butter, loading times are in significant, and everything is priced competitively to its Android and iOS counterparts.
