Chart Edit

Not 4G

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

At only 8 gigabytes, the Kindle Fire HD 7 has a fairly small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Kindle Fire HD 7. Tablets that were released more than two years ago have internal storage capacitys of between 0.25GB and 260GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 18GB.

We compared all the other 8GB internal storage capacity tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Trekstor SurfTab Xiron 7.0, and the Huawei MediaPad (£56.81) is also worth considering.

If this tablet internal storage capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the Samsung SM-T330 Galaxy Tab 4 (16GB).
