Why I think Fire 7″ Display Wi-Fi 8 GB is amazing value for money

Recently my friend bought a Fire 7″ Display Wi-Fi 8 GB and I compared it against my Nexus 7 (2013). The Fire 7″ Display Wi-Fi 8 GB cost him just £25 because he had £10 voucher which reduced the original cost of £35 (at the time it was on offer –  currently £49) to £25. I bought my Nexus for £115.

Here I will breakdown the pros and cons of both my Nexus and the Fire 7″ Display Wi-Fi 8 GB. The reason I am comparing two products with a big price difference is to highlight how Fire 7″ performs against a tablet that is considered on the higher end of the tablet market.

Although Nexus has almost double the resolution of Fire 7″, the colors are still very vivid on the latter especially if you’re just using it for browsing.
