Yesterday I left a first comparative in which put front them two tablets Fire of Amazon, and today you plays already to the new Fire HD 8 face is with them models of range basic of others manufacturers, starting by the Tab3 of 8 inch of Lenovo. What are those points strong or weak of each one of them? What of them two us leaves a best ratio quality / price? We will try to help you decide what reviewing the technical specifications of both.
With regard to the design we have two relatively classical tablets, aimed at use in position portrait, without quite stylized and physical buttons with rather small side frames for easy grip, although that could maybe point that the tablet of Amazon has a few more straight lines, while the Lenovo are softer. The important thing, in any case, in tablets of this kind, is that with the two we have a satisfactory finish.
There is too much notable differences with respect to dimensions, starting because they have an almost identical size (21.4 x 12.8 cm front 21 x 12.5 cm). Its thickness is also very similar, although is can appreciate that it Tab3 is something more fine (9.2 mm front 8.9 mm), and that also carries a small advantage with regard to the weight (341 grams front 329 grams). In all case, we found with differences that well may pass unnoticed in the contact with the tablets.
As for the screen, here already that we have an absolute tie, with two screens of 8 inches and HD (1280 x 800) resolution, which is the maximum that we can expect from tablets of their price, which is, obviously, that they also have the same density of pixels (189 PPI). Nothing in this section, therefore, that you can help us to tilt the balance of one or other side.
In the performance section we find the two installed processors of Mediatek’s with the same frequency (1.3 GHz) quad-core, which leaves us with a fairly balanced situation in terms of power. Tab3, however, takes advantage in terms of RAM memory, reaching the 2 GB, versus the 1.5 GB which is a Fire. There are that have in has, in all case, that the tablet of Amazon runs its own version of Android, what can assume some difference with regard to fluidity.
We return to a situation of full equality in the section on storage capacity, since the two offer us 16 GB of storage capacity, expandable externally through card micro-SD, which is usually right now, on the other hand, in the basic range.
Unless have very clear that are going to use much it camera of our tablet, us always recommend not lend too much attention to this point, but for those of you that that is important, there are that leave constancy of that the victory would be for it Tab3, both by what makes to it camera main (2 MP facing 5 MP) as to the front (0.3 MP facing 2 MP).
We don’t have detailed tests of autonomy that will allow us to also compare the consumption and definitive conclusions, but given the similar characteristics (especially with a screen of the same size and resolution), a priori is reasonable to give as a favorite to the Fire, whose battery has a capacity significantly greater (4750 mAh face 4200 mAh) without which none of their characteristics give us reason to believe that your consumption should be also significantly higher.
As have seen, us found with two tablets of features very similar, each a with their own points strong and weak, by what the difference of price, although small, can be significant: it Fire HD 8 is sold by 110 euros, while it Tab3 8 is sold by around 130 euros (the price varies here something more, depending on the Distributor).
