Amazon Fire Max 11: Amazon's largest and fastest tablet

Shopping in XXL format. The affordable Amazon Fire Max 11, with its 11-inch panel, is the manufacturer's largest Fire tablet to date. It competes with a fresh design, a large battery and a new mid-range SoC. Our review reveals how well the Fire Max 11 performs.
Amazon Fire Max 11

Amazon is launching its largest and most powerful tablet to date in the form of the Fire Max 11. The 11-inch device with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 houses the eight-core MediaTek MT8188J which, according to the manufacturer, is almost 50 percent faster than the Mediatek MT8183 in the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021). This means that the tablet is not only suitable for all multimedia applications, but should also run demanding games smoothly.

Other improvements compared to the Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) include WiFi 6 support, a larger battery (from 6500 to 7500 mAh), improved cameras and a fingerprint sensor. The Alexa voice assistant is once again on board, as well as the option of upgrading the tablet to a 2-in-1 device with an optional keyboard case and stylus.

Case - Fire Max 11 with aluminum back cover and new design

The 7.5 millimeter thin Amazon Fire Max 11 does away with the old-fashioned design of its predecessor in two areas. As the first Amazon tablet with a metal back, it feels significantly more sturdy and higher quality than the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021), which has a plastic chassis. The display edges have become significantly narrower, meaning that the display-to-surface ratio has increased from 72 to a solid 81 percent. Like its predecessor, the front of the Fire Max 11 is made of aluminum silicate glass.

Despite the display having grown from 10.1 to 11 inches, the weight has hardly changed. While the Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) weighs 465 grams, the Fire Max 11 remains almost as light at 490 grams, which also makes it quite handy in everyday use. However, there is still no IP certification.

A pogo pin strip is located on the bottom of the tablet for connecting the magnetic docking keyboard. Unlike the Fire HD 10 Plus (2021), the rear camera, which now has a resolution of 8 MP instead of 5 MP, protrudes a few millimeters from the case. If you don't put the tablet in the optional keyboard case, it wobbles back and forth on flat surfaces.

Equipment - Cheaper with advertising

Amazon offers the Fire Max 11 with 64 and 128 GB of eMMC storage and gives buyers the choice between a configuration with or without lockscreen ads. If you opt for the slightly cheaper variant with lockscreen ads, sponsored screensavers are displayed on the lock screen and in idle mode.

The four variants (excluding accessories) are:

  • 64 GB, with lockscreen ads: $189.99
  • 64 GB, without lockscreen ads: $204.99
  • 128 GB, with lockscreen ads: (currently unavailable)
  • 128 GB, without lockscreen ads: $239.99

Amazon also offers the tablet in a bundle with a stylus and/or a keyboard case. The basic storage configuration (64 GB, without lockscreen ads) of the Fire Max 11 with pen and keyboard case starts at $329.97

Our 64 GB test device offers around 54GB of free space upon booting up for the first time. The internal memory can be expanded using a microSD card, which can be up to 1 TB in size. However, the exFAT file system is not supported. The 3.5 mm jack connection of the predecessor has been omitted from the Fire Max 11.

Software - Fire OS 8.3 limited to Amazon apps and services

The Fire OS 8.3 of the Amazon Fire Max 11 has little in common with standard Android. The Android 11-based user interface is geared entirely towards Amazon content and can therefore only be used meaningfully with an Amazon account. A positive aspect is that the tablet will be provided with Android security updates until at least 2027, according to the manufacturer.

The tablet distributes content across the three Fire OS tabs For You, Home and Library. In addition to Amazon products, the contents of the media library are also displayed there. The tabs are opened by tapping on them or swiping to the next one.

The apps displayed on the homepage are all tailored to the Amazon universe. The browser is not Chrome, but the Silk Browser. There are also apps such as Amazon itself and the Amazon App Store, which replaces Google Play. Thanks to DRM Widevine L1 support, the tablet can also play video content from streaming services such as the company's Prime Video in HD quality. Alexa-enabled devices can be controlled directly from the tablet.

Other preinstalled apps include Audible, Amazon Photos and Music as well as the Alexa assistant, which allows you to conveniently control the tablet by voice in hands-free mode. A kids mode is also integrated, which parents can use to provide their children with age-appropriate videos, games, books and learning apps.

The Fire Max 11 is not intended to reach beyond the Amazon universe because Google Play is not officially supported on the tablet. But Google services and the Google App Store can be easily installed. How this can be done is shown in this review (only in German). However, installing Google will void the 1-year manufacturer's warranty for the tablet because, according to Amazon, this constitutes improper use.

The Amazon Fire Max 11 communicates with the outside world via Bluetooth 5.3 and WiFi 6. Connected to our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router, the tablet achieves stable but not too high transfer rates, peaking at 499 Mbps. The Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) cannot keep up here at a maximum of 321 Mbps, just like all other comparison devices.

Cameras - Solid photos in good lighting conditions

Photo with the selfie camera
Photo with the selfie camera

The front and back of the Amazon tablet each feature an 8 MP camera that can record videos in Full HD resolution. The selfie camera is well suited for video chats in sufficient ambient light and scores with decent color reproduction and image sharpness.

The main camera also works with autofocus, but like the selfie camera, it also relies on good lighting conditions in order to produce decent photos. It manages to take surprisingly good shots characterized by vivid colors and a lot of dynamics. Image sharpness is somewhat lacking, but it is better overall than the sharpness provided by most other inexpensive tablets.

Note: Photos taken with the Fire Max 11 look worse in quality than they actually appear when comparing pictures. By default, the tablet takes pictures in HEIF format and the loss of quality occurred when converting the photos to JPEG format.

Accessories and Warranty - 9 watt power supply included

The Amazon Fire Max 11 comes with a USB-C cable (Type A to C), a 9-watt power adapter (5.2V/1.8A), a metal pin for the microSD slot and a quick guide.

Optional accessories for the tablet include the "made for Amazon" digital stylus and a two-part keyboard case. The two items are also available in a bundle. For example, the tablet in a set with the keyboard and the stylus starts at $329.97.

You can also buy a screen protector for the tablet from Amazon and stock up on a magnetic protective cover with a folding function. This offers the same functionality as the keyboard case and is also covered with fabric on the back.

The Fire Max 11 comes with a 1-year warranty.

Input Devices & Operation - Stylus and keyboard are optional

Powered by the eight-core MediaTek MT8188J SoC, the Amazon Fire Max 11 can be operated smoothly and cuts a good figure as a multimedia and shopping tablet. You can unlock it biometrically using the fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button, which works reliably.

Amazon's tablet can be used as a productive system with the optional stylus pen and optional keyboard. The stylus pen, like the tablet, is designed in a plain gray, supports 4096 pressure levels and is tilt-sensitive up to an angle of 45 degrees. The stylus is magnetically attached to the tablet's left and lower sides, but it is not charged inductively. Instead of a rechargeable battery, the pen uses a AAAA battery that should last up to 6 months according to Amazon. A replacement tip is also included.

The two-part keyboard case consists of a QWERTY keyboard unit and a protective cover for the back. Both are covered with soft gray fabric. The keyboard magnetically docks onto the five pins on the tablet's underside and is powered via them.

The protective cover has an integrated stand that can be opened steplessly up to around 120 degrees. However, there is no keyboard backlight. The keys are sufficiently large at 1.5 x 1.5 centimeters, but do not provide a particularly pleasant typing feel due to the low key travel. The touchpad is quite small at around 8.5 x 4.2 centimeters, but serves its purpose.

In matters of productivity, Amazon gets in the way of itself a little with the software features of Fire OS 8.3. Aside from the 3-month trial version of Office 365, there are no preinstalled apps that can serve as work tools. There is not even a note app included, which has to be downloaded from the sparsely stocked Amazon App Store. Users wanting to work productively with the tablet can hardly avoid installing APKs or the Google Play Store, which has a much more extensive range of apps.

Display - Fire Max 11 with bright TFT-LCD

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The 11-inch TFT display of the Amazon Fire Max 11 has a resolution of 2000 x 1200 (aspect ratio 5:3). This results in a pixel density of 213 PPI, which equates to a fairly sharp display. Competing devices such as the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) have very similar pixel densities. The display does not support HDR.

At an average of 509 cd/m², the TFT-LCD shines very brightly for a tablet in its class and is thus suitable for outdoor use. It peaks at 564 cd/m² and shines at 6.27 cd/m² at the lowest brightness level.

The display cannot function entirely without PWM for brightness control. However, PWM flickering only occurs at a panel brightness of 63 percent and below and is then so high-frequency at 41950 Hz that even sensitive users should not find this bothersome.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 41950 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 41950 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 41950 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18732 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Series of measurements at a fixed zoom level and different brightness settings

Thanks to its comparatively low black value of 0.4 cd/m², the TFT-LCD achieves a very good contrast ratio of 1410:1. The Fire Max 11 doesn't display colors and grayscales quite ideally, but the color accuracy is absolutely fine for a tablet in its price range.

Users cannot adjust the image parameters themselves. At best, a dark theme and a blue light filter can be activated in the screen settings.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
19.06 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.059 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.13 ms rise
↘ 25.17 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 57 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (34.3 ms).

The Amazon Fire Max 11 does quite well outdoors. Even in direct sunlight, content on the viewing-angle-stable TFT LCD is still quite legible, although light reflections make this difficult at times. Readability in the shade is guaranteed.

Performance - Good mid-range power with the MediaTek MT8188J

Amazon uses the MediaTek MT8188J for the Fire Max 11. The ARM SoC, which was introduced in the first quarter of 2023, is manufactured in a structure width of 12 nanometers, which is no longer new, and has a total of eight CPU cores. These consist of 2 Cortex-A78 cores that clock at up to 2.2 GHz and 6 Cortex-A55 cores at up to 2 GHz. The ARM Mali-G57 MP2 is used as the graphics unit.

The MediaTek MT8188J gives the Fire Max 11 a lot of power. It is the fastest of the comparison devices in the synthetic benchmarks and clearly surpasses the Fire HD 10 Plus (2021). The performance increase compared to the predecessor is not always 50% as promised by Amazon. Then again, the tablet is practically twice as fast in some benchmarks such as AnTuTu v9 and Geekbench 5.4.

The slow eMMC flash memory of the tablet clearly slows down data transfers. The sequential and the random writes in particular run at a snail's pace. However, the situation is not much better with rivals such as the Acer Iconia Tab P10, the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) or the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 LTE 2022.

Gaming - 30 FPS in PUBG Mobile

The Amazon Fire Max 11 is well equipped for gaming with its stereo speakers and MediaTek MT8188J. In testing, the tablet even manages to render graphically demanding games such as PUBG Mobile smoothly. At HD/high settings, which is also the maximum, the tactical shooter runs at a stable 30 FPS. Less CPU-intensive games such as Armajet and Subway Surfers may run faster than the maximum displayable 60 frames per second.

Frame rates were determined using our Gamebench test tool.

Emissions - The 11-inch tablet does not get more than lukewarm

Temperature

The Amazon Fire Max 11 does not have heating issues. In our tests, it remains cool under maximum load and does not get more than lukewarm on the surface. As 3DMark's Wild Life stress tests show, the SoC is almost always able to call up full performance. In the demanding Wild Life Extreme test, the test scene is still rendered practically as fast as in the first run (98.4%) after 20 runs.

Speakers

The Dolby Atmos-compatible speakers are located on the top of the Amazon tablet and can produce quite sound at 89.7 dB(A) without distortions. Thanks to its high-pitched sound, the Fire Max 11 transports voices very clearly. Music sounds rather thin due to the lack of bass.

External audio devices can be connected to the tablet via USB-C or Bluetooth 5.3.

Energy Management - Long runtimes with a large battery

Power Consumption

The Fire Max 11 is inconspicuous in terms of power consumption, even if it consumes a little more than its competitors when idling and under load. However, this is compensated for by the battery, which is quite generously sized at a capacity of 7500 mAh.

Amazon includes a 9-watt power supply with its tablet, which can make charging a waiting game. In our test, it took 4:15 hours for an empty battery to fully recharged.
