Kindle Fire HD 8.9 in-depth visual review

By Updated on

As you know Amazon had the Kindle Fire and HD but needed something a little larger in order to compete with the big boys, which is why the online retailer brought out the Kindle Fire HD 8.9. While it will never be able to compete with the likes of the iPad and some of the top spec larger Android tablets, it’s certainly good to have even more choice.

Below we have for you a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 in-depth visual review, which looks over all aspects of the device, but we love how they confuse each other at first until they come to an agreement on what segment this tablet fills. The first thing that people will discuss is to do with the screen resolution, and it’s pointed out that most people will say that it’s not as good as the iPad 4, but most of us won’t even be able to tell the difference.

It seems that every time one of the guy’s talks about a certain Kindle Fire HD 8.9 feature the other guy is there to offer an in-depth analysis, but manages to make it sound so simple that most people will be able to understand. It’s clear that the main reason to have this larger Kindle Fire HD is to view videos and after a long discussion about Amazon Prime they get down to the new size format and how it compares to rival tablets.

The new 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD is a little lighter than the iPad 4 and it’s most defiantly a two-handed tablet. It’s clear to see that it could do with a kickstand of some sort to make it more comfortable when watching movies. Now while some people will not like the larger bezel, the reviewers feel it is a good addition because it’s easier to pick it up and not fear about selecting something you shouldn’t on the touchscreen, like you do with other tablets on the market. For more in-depth details just watch the video review below.

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 price has to be one of the biggest reasons why you should consider this tablet because the $299 starting price is considered to be an amazing offer, especially when the iPad mini starts at $329 and the Nook HD at $199 and the HD+ at $269.00, which we recently discussed. However, the biggest rival is the Nexus 7 and that price starts at $199 and is considered to be the better device.

    The start of the article states that the Kindle will never be able to compete with the likes of the Ipad.The Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is indeed doing just that,and at great success I might add.Take a look at the 300 + five star reviews on Amazon for the new Kindle Fire HD.Many of these reviews are from current owners of the fourth generation Ipad who state that the Kindle is superior to their Ipad.In many aspects it is.The dual speaker Dolby audio on the Kindle blows away the Ipad’s single speaker audio.Also,viewing movies on the Kindle in true 16:9 ratio vs. the 4:3 ratio of the Ipad with black bars on the top and bottom makes the Kindle far superior.Why Apple would design a 4:3 ratio system is totally beyond me.
