Amazon Kindle Fire HD 2013 Review

6 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Based on two expert reviews from sites including Laptopmag.com and digitalmediaandit.com the average expert rating of this tablet is 75%.

Amazon Has Good Reviews for Its Tablet Computers

We calculated the average ratings for all Amazon tablets and specifically for Amazon tablets and found that in both cases Amazon had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

The internal storage capacity of tablets that were released more than two years ago range from 4GB to 260GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 23GB. With an internal storage capacity of 32 gigabytes, the Kindle Fire HD has one of the larger internal storage capacity amongst tablets of this age.

Tablets with a larger internal storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Blackberry Playbook (64GB) which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Like most of the other tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the Kindle Fire HD, the Kindle Fire HD is not 3G compatible.

If you would prefer a tablet that is 3G compatible then you might want to consider the Samsung SM-T800 Galaxy Tab S.

Not 4G Compatible

The Kindle Fire HD is not 4G compatible. Most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago are also not 4G compatible.

If you want a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might want to consider the Samsung SM-T800 Galaxy Tab S.

2 Other reasons to consider the Amazon Kindle Fire HD

Released Over Three Years Ago

Amazon released the Kindle Fire HD over three years ago.

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 7 inches, the Kindle Fire HD has a pretty standard screen size compared to most of the other tablets of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 7" tablet computers to this tablet and we think the Amazon Kindle Fire, and the Blackberry Playbook which has a better Rating is also worth considering.

If this Amazon tablet screen size is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Gigaset QV830 (8"), or the Archos 80 Platinum (£139.00) (8").
