If you don’t mind sticking to the Amazon ecosystem, the Amazon Fire HD series offers an excellent blend of value and quality. While far from the flagships of many manufacturers, the Fire series ties in with Amazon’s streaming video, shopping and app store services in a seamless and easy-to-use way. Instant video chat support also makes it great for those new to the world of tablets.
Apart from a 1-inch screen size increase and dual front-firing speakers, the Amazon Fire HD 7 is identical to its smaller sibling. For more information on what people are saying, check out our review summary for the Fire HD 6!
