As usual, high-end devices that have debuted in the past few weeks have absorbed almost all of the attention, but the truth is that we have also seen the release of some of the basic range that’s worth paying attention, among which without a doubt is the new tablet 8 inch of Amazon, the Fire HD 8 , whose technical specifications will measure in our comparative of today with the 7 inchmodel, to ensure that you differences there are between the two, plus size, and help you decide if you can be you or not worth paying more to pick up the new model.
Although it would fit to assume that you were not going to find too many differences in the design section, in the case of two tablets of the same range, the truth is that Yes we can see that the lines are somewhat different, with more regular frames, smoother lines, and, in general, aesthetics more conventional, for the 7-inch tablet. None of the two leaves us, on the other hand, no extra that worth mentioning something Moreover expected tablets of basic range, where the key is to reduce costs.
In the paragraph of dimensions, by the contrary, is where find them differences more evident between both, and there are that say that are quite notable in what regard to the size to treat is of two tablets compact (21.4 by 12.8 cm facing 19.1 by 11.5 cm). In comparison, the difference of weight seems quite small (341 grams facing 313 grams) and in what regard to the thickness, indeed, us found with that the tablet of 8 inches is more fine (10.6 mm front 9.2 mm).
It is not size the only thing differing these two models (8 inch to 7 inch) screens, but it must be borne in mind that the larger of the two also has higher resolution (1280 x 800 to 1024 x 600), enough to that, despite being larger than its pixel density is higher (189 PPI against 171 PPI).
In the performance section, the two arrive with a Mediatek processor quad-core and 1.3 GHzmaximum frequency, but the 8 inch model that puts a step by forward with respect to the RAM memory, although the difference is not too large (1.5 GB to 1 GB).
Another of the advantages that us leaves the new model is the count with a greater capacity of storage: the model standard has with 16 GB of memory internal rather than 8 GB, and the top with 32 GB instead of 16 GB. Certainly, however, that the two available micro-SDcard slot, allowing you to somewhat alleviate the difference through the external storage.
If even when talk of tablets of range high recommend not pay too much attention to the paragraph of cameras, how much more not it will do when talk of tablets low-cost as these. However, there are that say that the specifications technical of both are identical in this paragraph (camera front VGA and main of 2 MP), by what in all case not going to find any difference.
On this occasion, and for the same manufacturer for both models, it seems that we can give some value to their estimates of autonomy and in this sense can be said that Amazon gives a clear victory to the new model, originating from up to 12 hoursinstead of 8 hours of the 7-inch.
As have could see, the Fire HD 8 not is only more large, what normally already tends to be enough to justify a price more high, but takes advantage in virtually all them paragraphs. How much more we would cost make us with it? It certain is that while costs only 110 euros, which is quite reasonable for their features, the difference is quite wide, since it Fire 7 costs only 60 euros. The tough 8-inch model, as you can see, is almost double the 7 inch.
