Learn more about Kindle Fire HDX

"...one of the most gorgeous screens I have seen in a long time." — GigaOM


"It's definitely the 7-inch Android tablet I'll be recommending to friends." — Mashable


"It's called Mayday, and it's the most remarkable customer service tool I've ever seen." — The Verge


"The Kindle Fire HDX delivers incredible value for its price, especially for Amazon Prime members." — CNET

 

 

Powerful Quad-Core Processor

Kindle Fire HDX tablets are the first tablets to be powered by the 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, making them the first to clock in at over 2 GHz. It provides 3x more processing power than the previous-generation Kindle Fire HD and, combined with 2GB of RAM, provides faster app launches, faster website load times, smoother multi-tasking, and better overall performance.

Console-Quality Graphics

The new Adreno 330 graphics processor on Kindle Fire HDX delivers high frame rates and console quality graphics—4x the performance of the previous generation Kindle Fire HD.

Custom Dolby Audio

Kindle Fire HDX uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world class audio experience. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology that adjusts volume, creates virtual surround sound, and delivers easier-to-understand dialogue in movies and TV shows. Kindle Fire HDX is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you're doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a movie, listening to music, or talking on Skype.

Improved Battery Life

With advanced power management technology, Kindle Fire HDX delivers an uncompromised 11 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music. When you're just reading, Kindle Fire HDX automatically powers down unused system components, extending battery life.

Breakthrough HDX Display

Kindle Fire HDX has a high resolution display (1920x1200) and high pixel density (323 ppi) for an incredible multimedia experience. The display features over 2 million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.

Perfect Color

Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect color (100% sRGB), displaying images and videos as the photographer or videographer intended.

Better Viewing Indoors and Out

The HDX display features dynamic image contrast, a unique feature that automatically optimizes the color of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see in any lighting conditions, including outdoors.

Live On-Device Support

Simply tap the "Mayday" button to be connected for free to an Amazon expert who can co-pilot you through any feature by drawing on your screen, walking you through how to do something yourself, or doing it for you—whatever works best. Mayday is available 24x7, 365 days a year, and it's free. Throughout the process, you will be able to see your Amazon tech advisor live on your screen, but they won't see you. 15 seconds or less is the Mayday response time goal.

Front-Facing HD Camera

Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX tablets have a front-facing 720p HD camera, perfect for Skype HD video calls and taking photos to share via Facebook or e-mail.

Import and Edit

Kindle Fire makes it easy to keep favorite photos and personal videos close at hand. Download your albums from Facebook, or add photos and personal videos (up to 20 minutes long) to Amazon Cloud Drive from your PC, Mac, or phone. Editing on your Kindle Fire is just as easy—simply select a photo to begin editing or use one of many popular apps in the Amazon Appstore.

Fast, Powerful Wi-Fi

When it comes to HD content, bandwidth is everything. Without it, you get video buffering, slow downloads, and dropped connections. Kindle Fire HDX solves this issue by using state-of-the-art dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi. With this, you'll enjoy fewer dropped connections and faster media streaming, plus you'll be able to go further from your wireless hotspot than with other tablets.

The Latest 4G Technology

Kindle Fire HDX features the latest 4G LTE technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband, letting you connect to the internet, stream, and download at speeds even faster than Wi-Fi. Kindle Fire HDX supports multiple bands ensuring that you always have the best and fastest possible connection on AT&T's or Verizon's expansive 4G LTE wireless network.

Update on Dec 23 2013 - Please scroll to the very end of this review for 2 month use update. [...]

For those who are looking at getting the best tablet out there at the moment, this is the one you should be looking at.

My profile: Heavy tablet users for personal and business purposes. I work on my tablet around 4-5 hours a day (Email / Documents / Spreadsheet / PDF ) and use it 1-2 hours for personal use such as watching movies or reading books/magazine. Tablet is my go-to device for all internet related search I do.

I have the following and/or used the following before:

1) iPad 1
2) iPad 2
3) iPad 4
4) iPad Mini
5) Kindle Fire
6) Kindle Fire HD
7) Kindle Fire HD 8.9
8) Asus Transformer with Keyboard
9) Nexus 7 First Gen
10) iPad Air 16gb Wifi

As you can see, I been through many devices and hope this review with my experience helps users decide if this is the right device for them. This will be an ongoing review for this device throughout this next year. For comparison sake, I will use last year's Kindle and iPad mini as they are the closest size to this HDX 7"

Speed (9/10):

This is leaps and bounds faster than last year Kindle HD. Last year Kindle struggles to go through any HD video content I put in. This year's HDX able to play seamlessly all the HD 1080p contents I added. It is incredible how much the 2.2Ghz quad processor improved vs last year's model Dual 1.2Ghz.

Screen (9/10):
This is the biggest improvement over last year's model. The screen is in true HD 1080p (1920x1080). This means any HD content I throw at it will view in its intended resolution. The screen is crystal clear (much better than iPad mini) and the viewing angle is incredible.

This is the middle model of the three models that Amazon is shipping this year: the Kindle Fire HD, the Kindle Fire HDX (this tablet), and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9". This is the successor for last year's Kindle Fire HD but with an updated operating system and new features, a redesigned shell (with the power and volume control buttons more readily accessible), an absolutely amazing display, superb sound, an included power adapter, and the new Mayday feature. See http://www.amazon.com/review/RNH700DOM9WN3/ for my review of the Kindle Fire HD and http://www.amazon.com/review/R2YPITHVTYLCZT for my review of the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9".

Update: Some users are reporting a bluish glow around the edges of the screen for the HDX. If you search on YouTube for HDX Blue Haze, you can find a video showing the issue. Amazon has updated their "Learn More" link with the following info:

"To achieve the perfect color accuracy on Kindle Fire HDX 7" at the lowest possible battery consumption and device weight, we used blue, not white, LEDs. Blue LEDs allow for a much more accurate and rich representation of color and result in an up to 20% improvement in power efficiency."

"As a result of using these blue LEDs, you may notice a very narrow, faint blue tint around the edge of the device when looking at items with a white background, such as books or web pages. All displays have some level of light emission around the edges, and the light on the Kindle Fire HDX 7" is blue due to the technology used to render perfect color accuracy."

If this is something that you think would bother you, I'd recommend taking a look at the YouTube video or taking a look at the HDX at a local Best Buy or office superstore.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Tablet with Sharp Display October 18, 2013
Configuration:With Special Offers| Connectivity Technology:Wi-Fi Only| Digital Storage Capacity:16|Verified Purchase
To sum up what I will tell you about in the details below, for $229 you are getting a good deal on a tablet computer - especially if you compare it to the $199 for last year's first-generation Fire HD and the $500 or more you can spend on a Wi-Fi version of the iPad. Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding and you can really tell a difference between this and the new HD Fire. If you are a first-time tablet buyer, where price vs. value is a key consideration, or if you are looking for an affordable tablet for the kids, I'd recommend the "regular" Kindle Fire HD that is only $139. If you're comparing last year's HD model to this version and it is operating fine, I'd say save your money and continue to get your money's worth out of that one.

My review below compares a lot of the features of this version of the Fire HDX to the original Fire HD as well as this year's model of the Fire HD, but also some of the features for a first-time user.

Consistent with my experience with setup of this year's model of the Kindle Fire HD, setup took a long time: despite being a brand new product, the Fire HDX attempted to download and install several operating software updates. Software updates on a Kindle are usually in the background, and it was annoying watching the crashes and manual reboots. Consistent with the Fire HD, it crashed during setup, playing a song, watching a TV show, and reading a book. It took a little over an hour to get this thing up and running without consistent crashes but after the final software update it has worked as expected without further issues.
