Kindle Fire vs Galaxy Note: Considerations

The world of technology is forever changing and if the decision isn’t hard enough with what to choose, then another two devices are thrown into the mix, that of the Amazon Kindle Fire and Samsung Galaxy Note.

Both have already been reported on by ourselves and today we wanted to put them side by side, in order to hopefully give you food for thought. The first is that of the Kindle Fire, a 7-inch displayed e-reader/tablet running on Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread. Features to the Fire include, 512MB of RAM, dual core processor possibly as androidauthority.com reported a 1GHz OMAP 4430 and 8GB of internal storage with WiFi connectivity. Downsides to the Kindle Fire include the lack of cameras and no option to video record plus the device is still fairly bulky.

Next up is that of Samsung’s new Galaxy Note, a 5.3-inch Super Amoled displayed tablet come smartphone running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. There is no getting away from the fact that the Note is impressive with 1GB of RAM, dual core 1.4GHz Exynos processor, 16GB of storage, 8 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel to the front, 1080p video recording, 3G and WiFi connectivity plus a massive 2500 mAh battery.

Now with the two devices laid next to one another, we know which one would be our choice. The Galaxy Note for us offers a smartphone, tablet, e-reader plus gaming device, whilst the Amazon Kindle Fire is purely a tablet come e-reader. Of course personal preference plays a big part as well as cost with the Kindle Fire being the cheaper alternative.

Tell us your choice and why?
