Let’s put the Kindle Fire HD to the Test to find out if it is “the Best Tablet at any Price”
The Amazon’s CEO famously put that the Kindle Fire HD is “the best tablet at any price” It is surely a big claim as the Amazon’s devices or even other tablets come with variety of features with varying price point so let’s find out what is the truth behind this statement, is it just making castles in the sky or does it have some base.
The device has surely improved itself over the last model this fact is propagated even by Kindle customer support. It offers higher much improved processing power and other hardware improvements. It showcases new features for movies and for reading books. It lets you the access of Amazon content world which was the purpose of the original Kindle.
Let’s compare the Amazon’s device with the it’s main competitor, the Google 7-in Nexus 7. The display is where the main difference lies The nexus 7 is fitted with a 1280 x 800 resolution screen that offers crystal clear videos, rich colour and high contrast to give you an unforgettable experience. The glare fighting screen too adds to the wonderful experience.
On the other hand the basic Fire HD has doubled the storage space that the Google’s device offers to fight the rival. The Amazon’s device has 16GB storage while the Google’s one is 8GB only. The 32GB version of the HD would cost you $249 only a fraction more than Google’s $199. The Nook and Fire HD are balanced on the storage scale as the Nook’s 16GB version Comes at $199 while on the losing side the Nexus 7 costs $249 for 16GB version.
You’ll get the option of taking out the video from your Amazon’s HD device to your TV with HDMI jack. By the way, you won’t get the cable with the Pack. With the new version of the Fire sports front-facing camera that makes Video chatting possible.
I have to give it to the device’s stereo speakers as the sound quality of device’s stereo speakers is far better than the quality that the tiny speakers of Nexus 7 and Nook offers.
This is a Wi-Fi-only tablet that Amazon has provided with dual antennas, support for MIMO and signal reception in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands for speeding up the connection. In-Spite of that, Web browsing is noticeably slower in the Amazon’s device than on the Nexus 7 — so in my opinion, at least, that hardware addition is of no use.
The device is lacking some important hardware features that its rivals have, such as GPS. The Fire HD’s processor is not at all cutting-edge: a 1.2Ghz dual-core OMAP 4460 Texas Instruments processor, in comparison with the more powerful quad-core Tegra 3 processor that runs the Nexus 7. After many days of use, I reckon that the tablet seemed to takes considerable time, occasionally, when opening apps and on those times when using apps. Restarting the tablet solved the problem, but then the lags eventually recurred.
In the conclusion i would like to point out that the Fire HD is not an all-purpose tablet, inspite Amazon’s claims that it’s “the best tablet at any price.” It’s not.
Instead, besides some shortcomings, the device is a simple, clever way to tap into the vast Amazon ecosystem of books, media, movies, music and video, and it does a excellent job of it.
