Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 - Expert Reviews
Amazon Kindle is a series of e-book readers that is designed and marketed by Amazon, and Amazon Kindle Fire HD comes under the second generation of Amazon’s colour touchscreen Kindle Fire tablet. This product comes in two variants, one with 7 inches screen size and the other with 8.9 inches screen size. It weighs only 395gm, which makes it ultra-light in handling and carrying. Its IPS LCD touchscreen provides a bright and clear on-screen view every time and its multi-touch functionality makes it more interactive. It is equipped with built-in stereo speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack so that you can enjoy your music collection the way you want. You can avail this model depending upon the storage capacity you need. Unfortunately, there is no slot provided to expand the device’s memory. So choose wisely before buying it. Also, this product has limited options in terms of global connectivity. You can take decent pictures with its primary camera but if you are a dedicated photographer, this tablet may not be a good choice. Even the secondary camera is missing which means you cannot go for video calling or self-clicks. Powered by a dual-core processor, this tablet runs on Android v4.0, which has been a little customized by the company. It also offers some other additional features and functionalities that make it worth every penny.
Operating system and UI
It is available in two variants, one with 7 inches of size screen and the other with 8.9 inches. Both the models feature a 1280 x 800 HD display that implements the polarizing filter and anti-glare technology, which provide you with rich colour and deep contrast from any viewing angle. This IPS LCD touchscreen offers a pixel density of nearly 216 pixels per inch and supports around 16M colours along with multi-touch up to 10 fingers. Such a screen provides a very crisp on-screen view and is best suited to comfortably read texts, e-books, watch videos or play games. The user interface is very attractive and little customized by the company to make it look trendier and different. The menus are so self-explanatory that even a novice can get along with it in no time.
Its audio and video players support all the commonly used files types so that you do not have to worry about the file extension before transferring it to your tablet. Few file types are MP3, MP4, WAV, WMA, and H.264 etc. To better your audio experience, it offers a 3.5mm audio jack with which, you can connect your earphones. The device also comes with exclusive Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers for immersive, virtual surround sound experience. Such high quality sound along with such a perfect screen makes your movies, videos, or games more engrossing.
Its 1.3-megapixel primary camera, which offers a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, allows you to take decent quality pictures. If you are a dedicated shutterbug and camera is your prime requirement, then you may need to re-consider your choice. Even video recording is a missing feature of this camera. In low light, the picture quality is further compromised.
This tablet offers very limited connectivity features especially if we talk about global connectivity. It does not support GSM voice calling, EDGE or GPRS. Wi-Fi is the only feature you can avail with this product. This can be seen as a downside for many other competing models offer almost all the necessary connectivity features at almost the same price tag. But at the same time, it is the first tablet which offers dual-band, dual-antenna, and Wi-Fi for over 35 per cent faster downloads and streaming. Now, this can be a balancing factor and rather a plus point of this tablet.
Amazon Kindle Fire HD can be bought in two models, one with 16GB of storage capacity and the other with 32GB of storage. Both these models feature 1GB of RAM, which along with 1.2GHz dual-core processor with Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core promises a fast and fluid performance. Unfortunately, there is no card slot provided, which means that you cannot expand your external memory once it is full. So, carefully choose your model depending on your collection size.
Some preloaded features and applications that form a part of the device are accelerometer, gyro, Email, Push Email, IM, HTML5 enabled browser, Facebook integration, HDMI port, MP4, MP3, Organizer, Document viewer, Photo viewer, Free cloud storage for all Amazon content. Also, Text-to-Speech English-language content reader, Integrated support for Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! and more, as well as Exchange calendar, contacts, and email, Kindle FreeTime with which, you can set daily screen limits and give access to appropriate content for each child, Amazon's own App store etc. Kindle Fire owners also get 500 Amazon Coins (a $5 value) to spend on Kindle Fire apps and games. Furthermore, famous games can be downloaded from its app store without any hassle.
Powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 processor, it possesses PowerVR SGX540 as the graphic processor and a non-removable Li-ion battery that promises to provide a talk time of up to 11 hours. This means you have a whale of a time to enjoy your collection before it dies on you. This feature is best for those who are in travelling job and are on the move most of the days.
The tablet lacks in many connectivity features and offers only Wi-Fi functionality for global connectivity. For local connectivity, it is equipped with Bluetooth and USB v2.0, where the former technology comes with A2DP support.
