    Some points you didn't mention: 1) Alexa is NOT available on the HDX, so if you want Alexa (As I did), you won't want the HDX anyway. 2) Interface on the HDX is not the same as on the HD lines. HDX still has that humongous carousel at the top and does not resemble Android as much. 3) For myself, I find that for most "tablet-y" things, I prefer the Samsung Chromebook Plus, since it has access to Android apps but a 2k resolution screen. I still bought the Fire HD8 strictly for its integration with the Amazon eco-system. I like keeping my to-do list on Alexa (and accessing it through the tablet) and I like that the tablet gives me a visual cue any time there is a new addition to a magazine that I subscribe to…right there on the home screen at the top.

    Finally a video on the fire line up. I own two fire tablets and I love them. I have the kindle fire hdx and the fire hdx. It's not a google tablet but it does everything I need it to do. Even if it has a limited amount of apps you can install the google play which makes it very versatile. I hope Amazon continues to make these tablets.


    Sorry, I'm Jewish, but that nose though, just had to say it.


    You didn't do a gaming review, I have a Fire HD 8 6th Gen (2016) newest model, and I think mine is defective since it lags on every game.

    Can I copy pictures taken on a digital still camera or my GoPro to the HD8? If so how?

    So, the conclusion is you would buy an iPad Pro – interesting.

  7. Lovely. My Gen 3. Fire HDX 8.9" just died and I'm seeing the current flagship device has a smaller screen, lower resolution, lower ppi, and slower processor. Great.

    Liked your review of fire models. I know I'm commenting on an old thread but alexa available on the new hd 10! Looks good. 32G storage, 2G memory, and 10 hours of battery life. $149.

    Great review. I own a Amazon fire HD for use in bed and toilet. A Samsung Galaxy 8 for a phone, A Microsoft surface pro for my business, and an IPad pro to chop onions on.

    I have the fire hd 8 and it doesnt support screen mirroring is there a app/device as a work around to this?
