Conclusion: If you're simply hunting for a 7-inch tablet, the path is far muddier. First, 8-inch tablets are putting severe price pressure on 7-inchers, and some makers of Android tablets are sidelining new 7-inchers altogether.
Pros: Brilliant, sharp display, Superior speakers, Sturdy construction, Tight integration with Amazon ecosystem (a plus, at least, for the Amazon faithful)
Cons: Lock-screen ads cost extra to remove, A bit heavy, slippery, and sharp-edged, No HDMI out or MicroSD slot, Relatively low-res front and rear cameras, Weak battery life, Size of Amazon Appstore, No Mayday 24/7 tech support
Summary: For an inexpensive tablet, the Fire HD 7 satisfies with a practical, family-friendly operating system, but those interested in a 7-inch tablet can find models with better build quality in the same price range.
Pros: The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 is faster than last year's model and starts at an affordable $140 (£120). Amazon's Sangria OS is user-friendly and new features make the tablet easily shareable for families.
Cons: Its plastic redesign feels cheap and it lacks the Mayday instant customer service feature. Free space on the 8GB models runs out quickly and there's no expandable memory option. The Amazon app store is less extensive than the Google Play store.
Summary: There are a few trade-offs, however. The Fire HD 7 (and its HD 6 counterpart) lack the instant-help Mayday function of Amazon's more premium HDX tablets, and similarly affordable slates such as the excellent ASUS MeMO Pad 7 provide double the storage and the full Android experience with access to...
Summary: We were impressed with the makeover of the Fire HD with lots of useable upgrades including a bright HD screen, more storage space, dual-driver speakers with Dolby audio and a long battery life.
Pros: Beautiful Presentation:, Simple Yet Powerful:, Keeping You Entertained:, Extras That Count:, Balanced Audio:, Screen Upgrade:, Eleven Hours:, Affordability:
Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7″ review: does Amazon’s latest light a fire under the Nexus 7?
8 March 2014
Excerpt: Amazon changed the tablet game late last year with the introduction of the Kindle Fire , a $199 7-inch tablet that – while limited by a slim offering of apps and lower-end hardware – really upended the lower end of the market and proved a dramatic success.
Conclusion: The first thing users will see when they take it out the box is a very plain, very ordinary looking tablet. It’s unimaginative design is deceptive to the point of doing the device a disservice, as once you switch it on you’re treated to a rich and diverse user experience unlike anything the...
Pros: Beautiful 7-inch HD display, Excellent stereo sound, Vast library of content, Affordable
Cons: Clunky, generic design, Locked to Amazon apps and content, No expandable memory

Conclusion: In this video we compare both the hardware and software to give you all the information you need on how these tablets compare against each other. We show videos, music, ebooks, games, internet experience, and much more!
Conclusion: The Amazon Kindle Fire HD certainly puts all the other tablets under $200.00 on notice. The combination of dual-core processors, webcam, 1 GB of RAM, Micro HDMI, and a high resolution display screen absolutely destroys most mid level tablets that are currently on the market.
