Amazon Kindle Fire HDX review (8.9-inch): a high-end tablet at a mid-range price

The latest Fire tablet has some top-of-the-line specs and nice software enhancements, but Amazon's closed-off ecosystem will continue to be a sore spot for shoppers who prefer regular Android.

Pros
  • Great screen
  • Strong performance
  • Mayday tech support and other helpful software features
Cons
  • No Google Play access
  • $80 more expensive than its predecessor
