    Do people actually buy this tablet 

  • Blackmagic1o0 3 years ago

    $379 is cheap? I guess anything price is cheap when compared to Apples
    pricing.

    I like the hardware, hate the OS.

  • Antonio Castilla 3 years ago

  • Khakimzhan 3 years ago

    They are saying it is lighter, why are you not pointing to the fact that
    this tablet is smaller than iPad Air?

    This fool just mentioned a 2k display and the fastest mobile processor on
    the planet as whatever features …I would never buy this tablet but this
    reviewer needs some a redbull and a new job he is definitely a dumbass

    Amazon needs to overhaul it’s almost five year old UI. That and stop trying
    to mimic Google’s ecosystem it’s no going to happen just give us more
    access to Google Play and let the Kindle act as a remote via the Fire TV.
    It’s not going to hurt anything.

    the buttons and the UI are UGLY as hell

    I’m quite happy with the $300 tag on the new shield tablet, combined with
    the enormous list of features. I’ll stick with that

  • mkygod 3 years ago

    I really hate the price premium for the 4g version. $100 over the wifi
    edition is unreasonable.

  • alex brown 3 years ago

    eh nothing really poping out to me as something I need I mean I have a
    Nexus 10 do i need more Pixels on it?

  • duniecool 3 years ago

    my god… if this thing was a nexus or any other android skin, I’d be all
    over those specs. But in this case, I’d take the s4 pro nexus 7 2013 over
    this anyday since the software is soo much better.

    Reasons I’ve pre-ordered the 2014 Fire HDX from Amazon: 1) 2k ultra high
    resolution display (8.9 inches just like the Nexus 9). 2) Cutting edge
    Snapdragon 805 2.5 ghz processor. 3) I’m intrigued by the feature they’re
    promoting, that when you’re reading a book, the color and lighting more
    closely resembles a physical book’s page than on other tablets. 4) Last
    year’s experience with the previous model gave me time to experience Mayday
    on-device customer service…..and as a result I’ve never again had to make
    a call to customer service and be put on hold for 5 or 10 minutes. 5) Easy
    to install alternative app stores, and as a result, there’s been maybe just
    2 apps in a year’s time that I’ve not been able to get, usually from
    Amazon’s store, but if not there, then from 1Mobile app store. 6) I have
    Fire TV, which obliterates Roku and Chromecast. But only with an Amazon
    tablet can you mirror your tablet screen to the TV screen, wirelessly..
    Did it with last year’s Fire and will do it with this year’s. 7) I love
    Immersion Reading, that lets me alternate from reading a book to listening
    to the audio version, which picks up right where I left off when I was
    reading.

    rooting this is a pain, I wish Amazon rooted the device and installed the
    Google play store on it.

  • Billy Cundiff 3 years ago

    the criticism on these are dumb founding. I haven’t used one, but I
    preordered one and if I don’t like it, I can send it back. Looks like a
    premium device, and I have prime so I can use music and movie services. I
    wish it had play store like the rest of you but I’ll just sideload apps .
    Couple prime services and the free apps of the day I’ve been hoarding for
    years, and I think it’ll be fun to use.

    Why did they fork it so much. They should atleast have included google
    apps.
