"The Fire HDX beat out the new iPad Air in brightness, screen reflectance, and absolute color accuracy—all of which are key to a enjoyable tablet experience." — Wired
The reviews are in: higher resolution, lighter weight, on-device tech support with the new "Mayday" button, Dolby Audio, and more—all for $120 less than iPad Air.
