Importantly, the price, the companies themselves have taken care to indicate that it is a key factor in choosing an Android tablet today. And, here, Amazon has taken a blow, as their model is much cheaper than Google . Its price is 199 €, 50 € cheaper than its competitor. Therefore, a factor to consider.

Another interesting factor for users are updates. Amazon bracket has generally good, but in regard to the correction of errors, not in step a superior Android versions. At this point theGoogle  Nexus 7 is unmatched, because as the model of Google itself always be updated first . This too should be viewed as intended.

The screen

The first thing you see is a tablet screen. Here you can not find big differences, because the resolution (1280 x 800) is the same and almost modeled density per inch. So are other features which must be evaluated. Perhaps, the determinant is that the Kindle Fire’s IPS panel HD is built right into the glass , which does not happen with Nexus 7.This, in theory, should offer great viewing angle and better color saturation.
