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.
