"...it is by far the best value tablet for money for what most people want." — The Telegraph


"It's the best small tablet you can buy." — Gizmodo


"It [Mayday] is, in short, an amazing idea well-implemented." — TechCrunch


"The Kindle Fire HDX comes with a real IT guy built-in." — The Mail on Sunday

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 Colour

Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect colour (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 optimises the colour of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see under any lighting conditions, including outdoors.

 

 

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. This provides 3x more processing power than the previous generation Kindle Fire HD and, combined with 2 GB of RAM, provides faster app launches, faster website loading 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.

Customised 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 films and TV shows. Kindle Fire HDX is designed to optimise the audio profile automatically based on what you're doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a film, listening to music or talking on Skype.

Live Support with Mayday

NEW—Simply tap the Mayday button to be connected for free to an Amazon expert who can guide 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.

Improved Battery Life

With advanced power management technology, Kindle Fire HDX delivers an uncompromised 11 hours of reading, web surfing over Wi-Fi, video watching or music playback. When you're just reading, Kindle Fire HDX powers down unused system components automatically, extending battery life to 17 hours.

Designed to Travel with You

Take Kindle Fire HDX wherever you go. The 7” screen makes it small enough to fit in a purse and weighing just 303 grams, its light enough to hold comfortably in just one hand.

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 your favourite 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 the many popular apps in the Amazon Appstore.

Enjoy and Share

Relive your most memorable moments in stunning HD. Our beautifully designed photo app makes it easy to view your albums or watch personal videos. And sharing your photos couldn't be easier  just tap on individual images to e-mail them or to post them on Facebook or Twitter.

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 away from your wireless hotspot than with other tablets.

The Latest 4G Technology

Kindle Fire HDX is 4G ready, featuring the latest 4G LTE technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband, letting you connect to the internet, stream and download at speeds that are even faster than Wi-Fi. Kindle Fire HDX with optional 4G/3G connectivity supports multiple bands, ensuring that you always have the best and fastest possible connection.

Kindle Fire HDX is compatible with multiple mobile network operators, including Vodafone. When you’re not in a 4G coverage area, you can still connect to a mobile network to use your device.

Vodafone Internet Starter Pack for Kindle Fire

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 Nov 2013
By Paul S. Ell HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Configuration:With Special Offers| Connectivity Technology:Wi-Fi Only| Digital Storage Capacity:16|Verified Purchase
I received this today despite having only ordered it yesterday afternoon. Cleary Amazon have plenty of HDX 7 inch models in stock. I went for the cheapest option - 16Gb of memory, (Wi-Fi only of course), and `with special offers' to cut the cost further. This is the third generation of Fire released in the US market and the second UK version. I purchased one of the first US models which has worked well for the last couple of years. The new model is a significant improvement on this.

Headlines, well first, the screen is absolutely fantastic. The colours are vibrant and the screen very bright, so bright in fact I've turned down the brightness settings. The screen has a far better resolution compared to the iPad Air (263 pixels per inch v. 323) which I bought last week and text is sharper and colour reproduction seems more realistic. Needless to say the screen is a long way away from the original Fire.

Second, and a little unexpectedly, the Fire is a lot lighter. I see its lighter than the last 7 inch HD version, and is considerably lighter than my original US-only model. Not that any of the 7 inch Fires have seemed too heavy to hold one handed for reading. The new Fire just makes it easier still.

Third, the tablet is a lot faster. The Fire uses the same processor that's in my Sony mobile phone and I've noticed a significant improvement with that compared to the last generation of chip. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor seems likely to be future proof for another couple of years.

Fourth, using the tablet with LoveFilm results is really high-quality film viewing. There's little reflection on the screen, on my BT Infinity internet link there's no delay in films downloading and no video stutter with images in brilliant quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Glitchy and disappointing 8 Mar 2014
Configuration:With Special Offers| Connectivity Technology:Wi-Fi Only| Digital Storage Capacity:16|Verified Purchase
I bought two of these at Christmas for my children who have been stealing my tablet for some time. I opted for the Kindle HDX because it seemed to offer a good hardware spec, parental control features and solid build quality.

I have been bitterly disappointed.

Firstly what isn't clear on the advert is that the parental control actually creates a separate section of the tablet which means that for two users the apps must be bought and installed twice taking up valuable space not to mention earning Amazon double revenues.

Secondly the device has been glitchy at best, often losing wifi connectivity (which according to the forum is more common that I realised). App's frequently crash and this seems to be to do with the amazon skin on android because i often have the same apps on my device and they run smoothly and without problems despite lower specs.

Thirdly, we have had a lot of problems with any none Amazon content. Music and Videos which in theory should play don't or albums are broken up into individual songs making playing or shuffling albums impossible.

Finally battery life has been disappointing with only around 4-5 hours on average. I have complained to Amazon and they have replaced the devices without complaint but the replacement ones perform the same. I have just bought the Nexus 7 for myself which outshines the kindle on every level and cost be over £70 less.

Having been a devout Amazon fan and traditional kindle fan for many years, this has been one huge disappointment for me and the children.

1.0 out of 5 stars Like a tablet only not as good 27 Mar 2014
By Mark R
Configuration:With Special Offers|Connectivity Technology:Wi-Fi Only|Digital Storage Capacity:16
It’s difficult to express just how disappointed I am with the Kindle Fire HDX, and the disappointment and frustration continues daily. Amazon appear to be only interested in bombarding me with adverts, which are not even search related. Just random junk!

The apps and operation in general is far too restrictive. For example, I already have an extensive music library on a media PC, all from original CD’s, but Amazon would prefer I download from them, so the process for downloading music is over complicated and in the end, incomplete. Another example…, I can’t download the itv version of bbc iplayer, I was advised by the online help to down load the STV player instead. This asks for a postcode, which since I’m in England, isn’t recognized. So, I just gave up. I have a PDF viewer, which should be very handy. It’s really simple to load a PDF in to the device, but returning to the home screen is a different matter. I’m a “user”, not someone who wants to or is capable of messing around trying to get this thing to work. It should be intuitive, but I feel that it’s far from it.

In the devices defence, build quality appears good, screen quality is excellent, photographs display well and the zoom works as you would expect. Searches and internet page loading is very, very fast and streaming from youtube is pretty much flawless. Unfortunately, it isn’t enough to compensate for the lack of overall user friendliness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best gadget ever purchased 27 Feb 2014
Configuration:With Special Offers| Connectivity Technology:Wi-Fi Only| Digital Storage Capacity:16|Verified Purchase
This is THE best gadget I have ever purchased; I can't even begin to describe how much I LOVE IT!! It goes with me everywhere & has totally taken over from my mobile (apart from calls & texts of course). It was so easy to set up, opened the box, switched it on & that was it. Easy. It is great to look at, easy to use, does everything I want it to do & more. Graphics are brilliant & the sound is better than my TV. I have nothing bad to say about this Kindle. Amazon, keep up the good work, I love you!!

It is very difficult to write a review because I haven't used it as there are no operating instructions. Very frustrating. Perhaps you could help me?

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a perfect product
Nothing wrong with Kindle Fire HDX but there are some annoyances that I'm dealing with and I don't quite know who to blame. When switching Kindle on, why does it open upside down? Read more
