              Hardware and Specs

In terms of hardware, the Kindle Fire HD has a few features that the Nexus 7 can't boast. It features with exclusive Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers for immersive surround sound. It is actually the world's first tablet with dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi announcing 40% faster downloads and streaming than others.

 In addition, different connectivity shows HDMI-out port with Kindle Fire HD and NFC with Nexus 7. When it comes to space for movies, games, and music, the former packs 16GB with the price of $199 and the same 16GB with higher price for the latter.

Entertainment and Apps: vs. Google Play

If your main use for a tablet is entertainment, there's plenty to love about the Kindle Fire HD. The tablet is tied to Amazon's much-beloved ecosystem including over 22 million movies, TV shows, songs, magazines, books, audiobooks, and popular apps and games such as HBO GO, Pandora, and Angry Birds Space. Amazon's Prime service also offers great services, such as free streaming-video content and free books from Amazon's lending library.

If you pay more attention on apps, obviously Google's Nexus 7 has all Android-based apps from Google Play at its fingertips. Amazon's got the entertainment, but its app marketplace is no Google Play.

Besides, no matter users want to watch MKV and DVD on Kindle Fire or Nexus 7, no doubt it is better to convert those HD files.

Great performance from software tricks: Whispersync, X-Ray, FreeTime vs. Google Now on Android 4.1

A new feature of the Kindle Fire HD called FreeTime is a set of parental controls that lets parents set limits on time and content for their children. Amazon's Whispersync system allows gamers to save their progress and helps book fans jump back and forth between written and audio forms of some book titles. And the expansion of Amazon's X-Ray feature gives fans behind-the-scenes information on their favorite movies and TV shows, in addition to e-book analysis.

But It the Google Nexus 7 runs Google's most advanced version of the Android 4.1 operating system, Jellybean, which includes advanced features such as voice commands, NFC, GPS and context-aware information though the Google Now dashboard.


Can the Kindle Fire HD play flash? As we all know, Google and Apple both abandon the Adobe Flash. Maybe the Kindle Fire HD support flash, on the contrary we should takes some methods to play Flash/SWF on Google Nexus 7.


The Kindle Fire HD is designed amazingly for serves of reading, watching and the web. And the Google Nexus 7 comes for Google Play and helps users enjoy perfect experience from Android system.

The real magic of the Kindle Fire HD is also a service. So a strong choice for anyone who primarily uses a tablet for entertainment and consumption will be the Kindle Fire HD. And Google Play has some must-have apps you can't get on Amazon, which might be the tipping point. So if you use a tablet more like a smartphone or a computer, the Google Nexus 7 wins hands down on your cash.
