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 section on dimensions, on the contrary, it is where we find the most obvious differences between the two, and must say they are quite notable with respect to size for two compact tablets (21.4 x 12.8 cm front 19.1 x 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).
Not is the size in it only that differ them screens of these two models (8 inch facing 7 inch), but there are that have in has that the more large of them two has also a resolution more high (1280 by 800 front 1024 by 600), enough as so, despite be more large its density of pixels is more high (189 PPI facing 171 PPI).
In the paragraph of performance, the two arrive with a processor of Mediatek four nuclei and frequency maximum of 1.3 GHz, but the model of 8 inches that is puts a step by front in what regard to it memory RAM, although the difference nor is too large (1.5 GB facing 1 GB).
Another of the advantages of the new model leaves us is having a greater storage capacity: the standard model has 16 GB of internal memory instead of 8 GB, and the upper 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, it must be said that the technical specifications of both are identical in this section (frontal VGA camera and principal of 2 MP), for which in any case are 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 we have seen, the Fire HD 8 is not only bigger, which normally already would be sufficient to justify a higher price, but that has lead in virtually all paragraphs. How much more would cost to us to do with it? The truth is that while it costs only 110 euros, which is quite reasonable for its characteristics, the difference is quite wide, since the Fire 7 costs only 60 euros. He tough model of 8 inch, as you can check, is almost the double of the of 7 inches.
