Pros- Screen- excellent (as good as an iPad3) Size- perfect (for me) to hold for a long time Responsiveness- excellent finger control (a tad better than an iPad3) Intuitive controls- I found it very good, plenty of options that are logical Movie watching (Lovefilm)- excellent: clear, crisp Shopping on Amazon- excellent Reading ebooks- excellent: bright, crisp Web browser- very good: Flickr is sharp, FB is a little squishy but clear, even watched Youtube without issue
Semi-cons Sound is clear out the little speakers, but a bit trebbly for me. Find a headphone that really supports bass, as the HDX is weak on bass.
Cons- Very few 3rd party Applications. Very few games. No java, shockwave, Flash Player support
I wanted the HDX for mobile movies, web browsing, ebooks and music... if it had a graphic equaliser (to give it more bass) it would have been perfect. Three point five out of four ain't bad.
