The comparison with the Fire HD 8 that we leave you today is a somewhat special case, because we will face on this occasion with a somewhat more expensive tablet, but that, after all, remains one of the most popular options within the basic range: the Galaxy Tab A (2016) 7.0. The question this time is going to be, therefore, if it can be worthwhile to us or do not pay a little more to get the Samsung tablet and in which sections are going to gain if we do so, that is what we will try to help you see reviewing the technical specifications of both.
While the Fire has evolved enough from its predecessors and is a much more stylish tablet, there are still some differences with the tablet from Samsung , which is worthwhile to note, as it is the home button physical which, like all Koreans devices, includes this. Anywhere we find premium materials, obviously, but the two leave us good finishes.
In the section on dimensions we have important differences, especially in what refers to the size (21.4 x 12.8 cm front 18.69 x 10.88 cm) and weight (341 grams against 283 grams), but you have to keep in mind that this is due largely to the fact that the screen of the tablet from Amazon is an inch bigger. Thickness, in fact, are quite close (8.9 mm compared with 9.2 mm).
The most important difference in the screen section is the aforementioned size (8 inch to 7 inch), since both use the same aspect ratio (16:10, optimized for video playback) and have the same resolution (1280 x 800). However, by the fact of being larger, the density of pixels in the tablet of Amazon, logically, is less (189-PPI front 216 PPI).
Tie in the performance section is virtually absolute, at least if we limit ourselves to the technical specifications: the Samsung tablet mounted a processor from Qualcomm and Amazon a Mediatek, but their characteristics are similar (four cores and 1.3 GHz maximum frequency) and the two accompanying them with 1.5 GB memory RAM. It must be taken into account, that Yes, that the Fire uses its own version of Android as an operating system.
In terms of storage capacity already that we did not find any difference, since the two we are going to have 16 GB of internal memory and slots for micro-SDcard, which gives us the possibility of getting more space externally if us falls short.
Although probably not is it more important of their victories, since a user half not goes make much use of it camera of a tablet, there are that say, for who are especially interested in this issue, that it of the tablet of Samsung is clearly top (5 MP front 2 MP).
It Fire part with an advantage important in this paragraph because your battery has a capacity much greater that it Galaxy Tab to, with 4750 mAh it first and 4000 mAh the second. Already know of all modes, that this is only the half of the equation and that the consumption is equal of important, by what not is can conclude which of them two will be winner until not have data detailed of tests independent for the tablet of Amazon.
Already I noticed to the home that make us with the tablet of Samsung us goes to cost something more, since is sold by prices that haunt them 150 euros, while the price of the of Amazon is of 110 euros. As always, is already a valuation personal if us can deserve or not the penalty pay the difference of price that means buy it Galaxy Tab to.
