When it comes to its battery life, the Kindle Fire HDX 7 doesn't have any problem lasting for a day under normal use.
If you're a light user, you might even charge it every couple of days or so. However, in intensive processing tasks like watching movies or playing games, we managed to use it only for 4 to 5 hours, which is still enough for you to watch an entire movie, check your email and browse a few pages on the Internet before actually charging the tablet.
How to print from the Kindle Fire HD or HDX
What we loved mostly about Amazon's Kindle Fire HDX 7 tablet is the strong hardware it packs and the beautiful display. The tablet is fast and responsive no matter what you ask it to do. However, there are two things that would have made us like the tablet even more: a rear camera and a GPS sensor on the WiFi only model. However, the original Android went through so many customizations that it's no longer recognizable.
- Printing directly over Wi-Fi.
- Body Toll (Detective Clay Randall Series Book 1).
- The Sound and the Fury: Edited and with an Introduction by Harold Bloom (Blooms Modern Critical Interpretations).
Fire OS offers a user interface designed to be as simple as possible. This is a good thing, and we must admit we like it. However, Amazon also stripped the original Android of all the customization options. You can't customize your device, even if you wanted to. You're stuck with what Amazon had in mind to give you and that's pretty much it. The home screen features a carousel with the apps or other content you recently accessed, and a grid of your favorite apps pinned under it. Also, similarly to Android, if you slide from the top of the screen you can access some quick settings and your notifications.
When it comes to the apps bundled with the Kindle Fire HDX 7, Amazon followed the same minimalist philosophy and didn't preinstall many apps. By default, you get the following apps:. We generally liked Fire OS, but it could be much better if Amazon would add at least some of the original Android customization options.
We appreciate the simplicity of the user interface, but the carousel for example is taking too much space on the home screen - we would be better without it.
With its 2. Knowing the specs is good, but it doesn't compare to seeing how the hardware fares in benchmarks.
- Tread Softly.
- Electronic and Optical Properties of Conjugated Polymers?
- Chinas Three Decades of Economic Reforms (Routledge Studies on the Chinese Economy).
So let's go see how it did:. The first thing we measure on any computing device is the CPU performance offered. To do that, we use Vellamo , one of the most popular benchmarking apps. The first test is Vellamo Multicore , a benchmark that aims to measure the CPU performance when running multiple tasks simultaneously.
Then, we moved on to measuring how well the CPU fares in single task operations.
The Vellamo Metal test shows how a device will handle apps that don't know how to use more than one CPU core. Considering that many apps fall into this category, this is a very important test. This score tells us that the tablet offers high levels of performance even when using a single CPU core. A very important test when assessing a device, is its gaming performance. The tests we consider relevant in order to be able to correctly rank a device, are the Manhattan and T-Rex tests.
We only take into consideration their offscreen versions, as that means they are run at a p resolution, regardless of the native resolution of the tested device. This score shows that the gaming performance offered by this tablet is good and you will be able to play any game available in the Amazon Appstore without issues.
We now have a better idea of how the Kindle Fire HDX 7 fares in terms of raw power and gaming experience. Next, we wanted to see how well it handles more common things like browsing the web. To measure its performance in this area, we used Vellamo again. Unfortunately, Vellamo isn't compatible with Amazon's Silk Browser, so to be able to get some results, as close to reality as possible, we first sideloaded Google's Chrome browser.
Kindle Fire HDX 7 managed to get points, which is a very good result. The final thing we tested was the autonomy offered by the battery. In normal use, the tablet managed to last us for a day and even more. But in order to get a more "scientific" result, we also used the Work battery life test offered by PCMark.
