I'm disappointed in NBR. One of your great strengths is your display tests and subjective evaluations. Amazon trumpets it's HDX displays covering 100% of the ARGB gamut. You even cite that they make this claim. They you proceed NOT to measure this display's color gamut.
I believe that our conclusion made it clear that a standard Android tablet is the better choice if the user has little or no interest in Amazon shopping or products. Nonetheless, apologies for the frustration.
I got the Fire HD (2nd gen) thinking it will take me mobile. Not so. Amazon's tablet is perhaps good for shopping on Amazon but that's about it. It is a CLOSED platform. Only the apps Amazon likes (has a deal going) will be installable. I could not put Chrome browser on it and that reduced my use a lot. It has no GPS! What? It is collecting dust. I think that Notebookcheck is a bit dull for not putting themselves in the shoes of the user. Oh, go play Angry Birds
A brighter Fire. Now in its third generation, the Kindle Fire series shows no signs of burning out. It is still the go-to tablet for Amazon shoppers, but are the new hardware and software updates enough for Android fans to jump ship? We take a closer in-depth look at the new $229 model to see what's new.
