Should have saved for the iPad

02/15/2014I have always heard good things said about the Fire HDX and, at at least $100 less than Apple, I thought I'd save some money.
The device itself is fairly robust and well made. The resolution on the display is very good. Movies really pop. Sound is better than many with decent reproduction and volume.
Physically, it is a 4 to 5 star device.
Where the Fire HDX fails is Amazon's semi-proprietary Android operating system. Apps can only be purchased through Amazon. The apps available are Amazon's picks from the Android market.
If you want Google product (eg. Maps, Translate, Earth, etc.), forget it. There are 'similar' apps from other publishers, but they do not compare well with the real things. Also, if your area has apps for local TV stations, banks, etc., again, forget it.
Further, I've been surprised at the number of so-called vetted apps that either don't work at all or are inappropriate for the platform. For example there are a number of apps available to read QR codes. Good idea, right?
Wrong! The Fire HDX only has a forward facing camera, making use a joke. You have to hold the QR code in font of the camera and then look around whatever its on to focus and capture it. If the code is on something like a store shelf, good luck.
The point is that there is no value added by Amazon to apps in the Android market, and thus no incentive to be locked into their store.
Then, there is Amazon's proprietary browser, Silk. As a browser, it's not all that bad, except that it does not support Java or Flash. So if any of your favorite sites use those, you are, once more, out of luck.
As an example, I thought I'd run an internet speed test. Of the half dozen or so that showed up on a Google search, all but one used Flash and would not work on Silk.
Finally, there is the Carousel. All new apps, docs, books, etc. are automatically added to the carousel. After a while it becomes unwieldy. You can remove items from the carousel, but it is a time consuming process.
Under the carousel there is a more 'traditional' list of apps that is fairly easy to organize. But every time you run an app or open a document, it will reappear in the carousel.
The bottom line is all this is good for is buying stuff from Amazon. If all you want are Amazon products and e-books, then it's an okay unit, though there are much cheaper readers on the market.
If you already have a device that uses Android, there is a back door way to add non-Amazon-approved apps, but if you are not reasonably tech savvy, you're better off just giving it a pass.
If you're used to Apple, save your money and pay the price for the real McCoy.
