Price comparison

Design

1.weight

313g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

10.6mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

115mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

191mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

232.83cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.resolution

1024 x 600px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

171ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size

7"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has an IPS screen
Amazon Fire
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Amazon Fire
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has a touch screen
Amazon Fire
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.3GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

1GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Amazon Fire
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

8GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

2MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

0.3MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

720 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.has a front camera
Amazon Fire
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Amazon Fire
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.has a battery level indicator
Amazon Fire
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
2.has a rechargeable battery
Amazon Fire
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
3.charge time

6h

The time it takes to fully charge the battery.

Features

1.is a multi-user system
Amazon Fire (Fire OS 4.0)
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
2.The browser has word wrap
Amazon Fire (Fire OS 4.0)
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
3.Bluetooth version

4

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
4.Is free and open source
Amazon Fire (Fire OS 4.0)
Anyone is free to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.
5.USB version

2

Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
6.Supports Java
Amazon Fire (Fire OS 4.0)
Java is an object-oriented programming language designed to enable application developers to run Java code on all compatible platforms without the need to recompile the code.
