在剛剛£50, 怎麼沒有,垃圾的很顯著 2015 亞馬遜火 7 平板電腦是. 兩年, 消防 7 (該 7 來自屏幕尺寸 – 7”) 已經瘦了一點,並具有改進的屏幕, 但仍然只是£50.

斯林默, 更輕,更亮

並排側很難說 該 2015 火 7 而新 2017 火 7 距離. 唯一真正明顯的區別是一組新的顏色 - 包括黑色, 藍色, 紅色和黃色 - 如果你瞇著眼睛,你也許能看到它的1毫米更薄, 和它的輕18克.

外側由紋理細緻的塑料,感覺耐磨的. 亞馬遜聲稱它的兩倍耐用蘋果的iPad迷你 4 而這可能是正確的. 邊緣圓滑,很舒適舉行, 和所有的端口和按鈕是在一個邊緣, 包括耳機端口, microUSB接口, 電源和音量按鈕.

有一個在背面的揚聲器這是很多不夠響亮觀看在旅途中視頻, 但並不完全足夠大聲舒適地觀看廚房在抽油煙機風扇和鐵鍋的聲音的電視節目.

該7英寸屏幕依然沒有HD, 但由於它的顏色和黑人改進 2015, 使它更加明亮和更好看. 它不會吹你走或競爭的任何一代iPad的, 但它是觀看的奇情節完全正常 大旅遊 或者打了一下真正的賽車的 3.

在閱讀體驗上的改善 該 2015 火 7, 更好看的字體平滑, 但它仍然不是一個點燃或智能手機如酥. 它有藍色陰影, 其中調整亮度,減少了屏幕發出的藍光量,使夜間閱讀更舒適,減少可能擾亂你的睡眠.

Sluggish but not quite infuriating

The new Fire 7 has the same 1.3GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM as the last one, 並執行類似. It’ll handle most games perfectly fine, if with slightly longer load times and slower frame rates than you might be used to on a top-end smartphone.

The operating system rolls along perfectly acceptably too. It’s not what I would call quick, but I didn’t suffer from any moments of lag that made me question whether I actually tapped the button or not. Swiping through the panes of the home screen is smooth, jumping between apps works relatively quickly, but there can be a noticeable delay between the app opening and it being ready for use.

The battery lasted for a little over 6.5 hours of video watching with the brightness cranked up, which is enough to get through most of a transatlantic flight. Playing games brought it down closer to 5.5 小時. If just reading, the battery will likely last quite a bit longer.

消防OS 5.4

該 2017 火 7 runs Amazon’s customised version of Android called Fire OS 5.4. It looks quite different to the traditional Android experience from Google, lacks Google apps and only has access to the Amazon App Store, not the Google Play Store.

Navigating it is easy with clearly marked panes filled with either apps, 遊戲, 圖書, 視頻, 音樂, 雜誌, audio books etc. It makes the best of what is a media consumption device, rather than a work device.

There is an email app, Amazon’s Silk browser, 往來, 日曆, WPS Office and other bits pre-loaded that do general information management and light office duties should you need them.

Alexa的

The jewel in the crown for Fire OS 5.4 is Alexa – Amazon’s voice-enabled smart digital assistant. It’s the same Alexa that’s found in the company’s Fire TVEcho smart speaker 設備, and has access to the same information.

Hold the home button and Alexa listens to your commands and questions, geared up to launch apps and optimised around entertainment. Alexa’s responses are more like those found on the Fire TV with interactive cards displayed while it talks through the answer to your questions.

Ask for the weather and get a card displaying current conditions and the weather for the week you can scroll through. Ask how old Uber’s ex-CEO Travis Kalanick is and get the answer but also the option to tap a link and search Bing for the query.

You can search for media simply by asking Alexa too. Amazon Music cards display playback controls and asking for a particular show takes you to the listing in Amazon video. Searches for content within third-party apps such as Netflix go unanswered, unlike the Fire TV, but almost everything else works fine including Alexa’s flash briefing and review of your day.

意見

  • The cameras are pretty poor producing blurry shots with little in the way of detailonly to be used in an emergency
  • There’s a for Kids edition of the tablet with a rubber case and no Alexa, but there are kids apps on the default version and fairly good parental controls
  • 該 2017 火 7 takes about five hours to fully charge
  • It requires an Amazon account to use and a Prime account to make the most of it

價格

該 2017 亞馬遜火 7 tablet costs £50 for 8GB of storage and “with special offers”, which are little adds on the lockscreen for recommended content from Amazon’s store. It costs £10 to remove the adverts. The version with 16GB of storage costs £60 with adverts.

判決書

它仍然顯著怎麼沒有,垃圾的 2017 亞馬遜火 7 平板電腦是當它的成本只有50£. 從原來的50£驚嘆兩年沒有發生了很多變化, 但屏幕絕對是更清晰,更豐富多彩, 而這是有點輕,更薄.

Will it win over iPad buyers? 別. Can you “get work done on it”? 可能不會. But you can buy six Fire 7 tablets and still have £39 left over for the same price as on iPad. And that’s the point. The Fire 7 isn’t amazing, but it gets the job of consuming media done at an absolutely rock-bottom price, and is much more capable with other tasks than you might expect. At £50 the Fire 7 has no equal, and now it even comes in a range of bright colours.

優點: it costs just £50, microSD卡插槽, acceptable battery life, feels durable

缺點: rubbish cameras, 很慢充, low-res screen, 矮胖, heavy for the size, no USB-C
