Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

Originally reviewed by 27 November 2013

Best Amazon Kindle Tablet

Key features:
  • 8.9-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 screen
  • Runs on Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor
  • Great Mayday support and Freetime apps
A vast improvement over last year's Kindle Fire HD 8.9, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is the best of the two main Amazon tablets if you like its mixture of services.

While you the Fire OS can feel too restrictive and lacks Google Play access, it does pack a blistering fast Snapdragon 800 processor, loud and clear speakers, a long battery life and a half decent 8-megapixel main camera if you really have to take pictures with it.

For beginners there's the clever and innovative Mayday tech support app and Freetime system to give greater control on what younger users access and how long they get to play Angry Birds Go. If you have never used an iPad or Android tablet, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is by far one of the easiest tablets to get to grips with. If it's too large and you still want to go Amazon, consider the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7.

Price: £329
