Transcript for Amazon Kindle Fire HD Review
-- Yeah yeah yeah. -- -- Amazon introduced to Kindle fire HD he's something very bold. And we were incredibly happy. Last year. To have the best tablet. At a certain price. This year. We want to have the best tablet. At any price. You see why this tablet is 200 dollars it has top of the line specs including HD display better speakers and most tablets it's also got a dual core processor. And better Wi-Fi. Sounds good on paper but -- gotta consider the competition including this nexus seven from Google which cost the same amount as the Kindle fire HD. But isn't better -- And then of course there's the iPad which since being released -- been best tablet on the market. So is -- telling the truth when they say that this is the best tablet on the market regardless of price. It takes about a second to notice how much nicer the hardware is on the new -- -- fiery -- vs the old Kindle fire. I really like the robberies back to curved edges and how in the -- made it is not. All that makes it really comfortable to hold up when reading of the wider Basil makes it a bit harder -- More -- the next segment also with a tad heavier than the nexus seven but you only really notice that if you were holding them side by side. It does have a slightly better screen and -- access lab they both have -- seen HD IPS display. The fire screen now has a special quality that makes it easier to see outside and reduces the glare. It's not as good as the regular can go outside but it's better than the iPad and access. Amazon is also added a camera to the front for video calling over sky. Out. No I wasn't just listening to Justin Bieber. Okay fine it was -- -- because they're -- -- good speakers on this tablet that make this sound really impressive for the small size. But the hardware upgrade kinda get here is actually what's inside and -- the faster processor and graphics which results in better performance. I -- things really gliding along most of the time things open fairly quickly but there are some instances where things would cause and it would be slowed. That's -- which is a version of android is really easy to use -- Amazon is also improved the core apps like email and photos. My favorite feature that's been added -- it's called X -- for movies a week I don't know the name of this actors in this movie -- what she -- in last I can just tap it. And I've got all the info I need about her and it goes straight to -- -- DE profile. It's still lacking with apps -- -- there are ones you care about like FaceBook. The Google -- store has more apps and you get -- official apps like Gmail and YouTube. Still I had had the best apps at any tablet on the market. Not really wants to -- with its tablet is sit back and watch a movie or read a book or some magazines that you bought from its stores. In fact actually advertises to -- On the tablet it shows you things that you might like to -- says he's here on the bottom also -- -- on the home screen. The worst thing in the world but I haven't -- a photo -- -- I'm not sure I wanna be advertised you all the time. Bottom line now go wrong with either of these tablets that -- firings is a great choice if you -- anybody into Amazon ecosystem books movies and magazines. But an -- -- is probably a better choice if you're looking for more android apps and the full android operating system. Experience. And of course there's the iPad which is still -- the tablets and there is now a rumor that Apple's app would be smaller iPad. That will compete with -- over here. So no I do not think that fire HD is. Best tablet on the market regardless of price but it is a darn thing tablet with a lot of impressive -- -- And yeah.
