Xiaomi Mi6

The world of mobile telecommunication has changed a lot in recent decades. The time change the using of phone rather then call or SMS. Fortunately, some brands bet on innovating way claim to create a device that serves as many people as possible. The Xiaomi Mi6 has all the ballots of success, within just two months in the market. This important climbing path starred by Xiaomi Mi5. In February 2016 the Mi5 has had a myriad of updates that have improved all the errors of its launch and have returned it to the high end. Today we bring you the analysis of Xiaomi Mi6.

Ready to know the strengths and weaknesses of the Xiaomi Mi6 as we analyzed in depth test in during month. We are going to bring a full analysis in which we have left nothing to see of this incredible smartphone. In the review we focus on the camera, power, design ….Without further ado, let us begin with all your technical specifications.

Technical specifications

  • 5.15-inch IPS display and FullHD definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) in 2.5D
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 to 2.45 GHz eight-core processor
  • 6 GB of DDR4X RAM
  • 64 GB of internal storage with no possibility to expand
  • Dual rear camera with both 12-megapixel sensors and 8-megapixel front
  • 3350 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0
  • Fingerprint reader
  • USB Type-C
  • MIUI 8 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Xiaomi remains focused on its native market, in China, where it is strong. So, with the sales figures that are not specify longer growing at the expected pace. It is easily understandable that personalization of Android 7.1 includes services, applications and ads that only have to do with China. Having a Mi6 requires an act of faith and a lot of patience. Even for advanced users. Something to keep in mind if you want zero complications then it is difficult. Also, desperate task of installing and running Google Play and several of the third party services. It will depend on which store you buy the device, it will arrive with global ROM or not.

As very positive points, Xiaomi updates and improve Dual Spaces and Dual Apps services. as well as the control, possibilities and customization it supports. The second one is very comfortable to manage several service accounts like Facebook or Whatsapp in the same device. The first portion allow us to being able to access contacts, images and other apps and services by entering a different password when unlocking the terminal.

However, MIUI 8 is definitely not a layer with which any user is going to feel comfortable. Be aware of the output of a ROM, as you may face some encountered problem. We hope, over time, it might be more effective.

A sober and at the same time impressive design

Xiaomi dark blue color model already get popular as we seen in market. . It is true that it is much more striking and novel. Although I also bet that, in the long run, a person could tire of it in future. Starting with the main component of a smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi6 does not leave anyone impassive looking at its screen. The model I have analyzed is black, manufactured like the rest of options of color in glass and metal. Although Xiaomi has chosen to the 5.15 inches screen with a resolution contained 1,920 × 1,080 px, we were left with 428 dpi, which is more than enough.

The feeling in the hand is very good the light hardly reflects, imitating in part the sensation that gave the Xiaomi Mi MIX. The assembly is excellent and there are no slacks or sounds even if we shake the terminal. It is small, comfortable in any pocket and is tremendously easy to use with one hand without fear of falling. This helps the rear curvature of the glass but also the front of the screen.

With regard to daily use, we have been quite noticed how to behave in bright environments like sunny day. Even with the sun reflecting directly, we could see the screen with all the details. The 600 nits of brightness are quite noticeable in the sunlight and that we talk about Seville in June, with a sun that makes it exceed 40 degrees in the shade. Something that in high-end and above all, super AMOLED, is quite difficult. Even so, we see that the screen of the Xiaomi Mi6, although it is solvent, does not offer the quality then smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Google Pixel itself.

On screen, size matters

A positive surprise at the top appears the infrared sensor. We have found one of the speakers and USB Type C connector in the bottom. On other side, there is three physical buttons, volume and power. Also with dual SIM tray.

The front displays bends very slightly, and the fingerprint sensor, which integrates perfectly when being also made by 2.5D glass. MI just greatly improving the ergonomics when you notice quadruple curvature of the glass on all sides. Something that cannot be possible to see with the bare eye.

In conclusion, we find a very familiar design, which has been improved to feel better in the hand and be much more premium. One negative point that we have found in this design is that, in addition to being attract traces, the Xiaomi Mi6 attracts the dust that gives unpleasant feel.

A camera that changes your focus

So far we have talked about a mobile that is very good in practically everything we have seen, but there is nothing that stands out greatly. Until now. From the beginning, Xiaomi Mi6 has behaved perfectly, making photos not at all daunting.

Xiaomi copying the same idea When Apple introduced double camera in the iPhone 7 Plus. In this way, this year, Xiaomi has made a great leap in quality in this high range and has included a double camera with two high quality sensors Sony IMX386 12 megapixels designed for conventional and portrait photography.

The main one consists of Sony IMX386 sensor with aperture f1.8, pixels of 1.25μm and equivalent focal length of 27mm. In this camera there are also 4 Axis OIS. As for the second camera, its focal length is 56 mm, with f2.6 and smaller pixels: 1.00 μm. This makes it perfect for portraits although for that we will need a suitable light.

But not all photographs are of this type, for which we have another sensor of 12 Mpx and f / 1.8 equivalent to 56 mm. This is the one that we will use in most occasions and that will give us some spectacular results.

Photography with Xiaomi Mi6

On the one hand, with regard to daytime photos, both brightly and with little, the Xiaomi Mi6 does wonders. The saturation is perfect and the sharpness it gets is impressive. Definitely, the photos that makes the Xiaomi Mi6 by day are to take them very much into account.

As for the front camera, the selfies have pretty good quality and the flash it creates with blanking the screen just when taking the photo, help us a lot in dark environments, although group selfies would not be so useful.

Instead, as the night approaches, we begin to see that the Xiaomi Mi6 does not respond well to dark environments. In this way, both pulling HDR and night mode, in addition to not having good sharpness, shows us much noise in the dark.

Definitely, the Xiaomi Mi6 is a smartphone to take into account in the field of photography, because, although in dark environments does not work well, most photos, we perform during the day.

The great strength of the Xiaomi Mi6 beyond design, and where I think it has also reached a maturity and sweet level I would say it is the camera. After several models in which it was not known what Xiaomi wanted with his camera, this Mi6 goes safely and replicates the double camera of the iPhone 7 Plus that includes the optical increases 2X zoom.

And how is that technical datasheet translated into reality? Very well. I have no doubt that it is the Xiaomi phone that best camera offers and we can already say that it would enter the current top5 in quite a few situations. The Xiaomi Mi6 maintains the good photographic level with favorable light conditions that we had verified in previous generations.

Maximum power & More battery

Xiaomi Mi6 has a greater capacity in total, 3345 mAh than in the previous high range of the same family. That figure excites me the most powerful processor that has created the largest mobile chip maker, Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 835 is a real beast and any application runs extremely smoothly. I think I still had a Nokia with Symbian. The standard data of PCWork shows us an interesting figure: about 9 hours. Very strong point is its battery. The 3350 mAh you have, allow us to enjoy, however much we do, 1 day and a half, and if we use little, up to 2 days and a half. With respect to the hours of screen, our average has been between the 6 and 7 hours of screen, taking into account the intermediate nights.

I have noticed that in standby mode with the active screen the Xiaomi manages the consumption well.

One of its strengths that MIUI 8 gives us to improve autonomy curiously with the checking what consumes more energy or “killing” ineffective background processes.

The GPU and RAM, 6 GB, are attach to the processor power. A shame that we cannot get more out of the split screen, something that MIUI 8 lacks. The internal memory is 64 GB although there are models that have 128 GB if necessary. In my personal use I have several tens of GB free so I will be enough for a few years. Not forever, of course, but I do not think that in at least two or three generations this cell phone would be short on this particular aspect.

Two other shortcomings more striking are the microSD, which with 64 GB again I do not find something key, and the 3.5 mm jack headphones, which I solved simply by connecting the adapter that comes in the box to my only headphones With cable. The other two, which I use for bluetooth, works the same way as in all other models.

In connectivity, the Xiaomi Mi6 is fast and complete except for the non-compatibility with the 800 MHz band and the absence of FM radio, in case you were looking for it. The calls are heard quite well and we had no problems using LTE.

Performance, and user experience

The reality is that as far as user experience, the Xiaomi Mi6 has been the best smartphone we have tested in a long time. Although very, few weaknesses of this smartphone, as of now, only come positive points.

As for performance, we have the best combination of hardware that exists in the Android market today, so we will have no problem. Specifically, the Snapdragon 835 allows us to scroll through any application without absolutely no loading time and impressive fluidity. Also, the 6 GB of RAM, although they look like 4 at the time of use. That allow us to leave many applications open at the same time and navigate through them.

A final note about the speakers is that it combines the sound between the speaker of the calls and the principal to achieve a really good sound.

Final opinion of Xiaomi Mi6

When brands take a high risk, they have a lot of chances of losing. Sometimes that is not an option. The Xiaomi Mi 6 is undoubtedly the best mobile phone that has made the company of Lei Jun. Although it is possible that throughout the year 2017 launches new models more powerful or more striking this will remain a highly recommended device.

In this way, although we have a change with respect to the camera, the technological advance has not been as great as we expect. Even so, if the Xiaomi Mi5 has been so successful, why not renew with a much more powerful model but does not differ too much.

The user experience has undoubtedly been one of the best we have had, and that, considering that we have MIUI and that sometimes it is made uphill in terms of configuration. Where else we have enjoyed has been taking pictures-of-day and navigating through the apps with absolutely no lag.

In our opinion, the Xiaomi Mi6 is very close to a 10 as far as general refers, taking into account, that we can find it in any online store for a price that is around 380 euros.

Should you buy it?

In short, Xiaomi is one-step closer to achieving the throne of Android with the Mi6. But, considering its A powerful mobile. Screen-controlled. High quality construction. Good design. Excellent camera. price, few terminals offer so much. Lovers of powerful smartphones will not be disappointed.

However, Mi6 may be too much for those who settle for using social networking, surfing the Internet, and making the right photos to share with friends. For the latter the Mi6 is also good news. Because its appearance has caused the prices of its predecessors have fallen considerably. The Mi5 for less than 200 euros and the Mi5s for about 270 euros now offer better value for money.

Android Oreo

Finally, Google has ended all the rumors and has confirmed the new version of the operating system Android Oreo, version 8.0 specifically. The same happened with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Android 7.0 Nougat arrival. Google wanted to play a little with us when it comes to naming the system. Moreover, with Android O have repeated the same as they did for Android 4.4 KitKat: put a famous cookie name. At the end, Android 8.0 is Oreo, the famous chocolate filled cookie. By coinciding with the solar eclipse, Google has presented us the latest version of its operating system named after the famous cookies that are uncovered.

Android 8.0 Oreo, A cookie name

It has rained a lot, at last the long-awaited day has arrived that we can call it something more than Android O and, moreover. Now we know what the logo shows. From the Google I / O the first letter was known but the name would not be known before announced. Beyond all this, the new version of the operating system brings a series of revolutions that will make mobiles more efficient and useful devices. The limit of background apps, Instant apps, or improvements in battery consumption, floating window, the new icons, the Notification Dots and Notification Channels are just a few of the new features we have seen since its Developer Previews. Many new developments are plan to make Android a more complete operating system.

How To install Android 8.0 Oreo?

Android Oreo 8.0

Surely many of you are doing a question now, How To install Android 8.0 Oreo? The answer is very common from the previous years. Really, Google’s are the lucky ones, they always enjoy the new version of the operating system before anyone else. We have to wait for get the real full version of this OS (the factory image, will available website of the Google developers) because only source code is release in the AOSP.

Anyway, let’s see how you can upgrade to Android Oreo and what requirements you must meet.

Do you have an Android based phone? Or whether it’s a Pixel, or a Nexus, the issue is that if we have any of these we can install Android Oreo instantly, when it is available. However, you must meet a number of requirements; otherwise, you will face something complicated.

First installed the Android SDK on your computer, also the drivers of your smartphone, unlocked bootloader and enabled USB debugging. Do not know how to activate this last option?

Very simple, simply access the settings of the mobile, enter the ‘About the phone’ option and repeatedly press the ‘Number of compilation’. This way, when you come back we will have the development options activated, access, and activate USB debugging.

Started the installation of Android Oreo

When you have the downloaded image of Android Oreo, you must unzip it where we want. After that, we will have to insert in the folder the Fasboot files that are in a folder called platform-tools, of the Android SDK.

The next thing is to turn off the smartphone, and once this action is done, we access the bootloader. How do you do it? Holding down the ‘Volume -‘ keys and the power button at the same time, after that, connect the mobile with the computer using the USB cable.. Then run the file called ‘flash-all.bat’ in case of using Windows, or ‘flash-all.sh’ in the case of Linux, after doing all this; you simply have to wait and, if all goes well, you can enjoy Android O. Sweet!

What things Oreo brings for you

Android have done a detailed review of all the new features that includes in Android Oreo, and we have select some of the most relevant and most featured.

Android Oreo manages your notifications better

Google knows that we use our smartphone a lot throughout the day. With a huge amount of notifications, we missed many. Furthermore, several applications send us alerts when we see that’s are not so something important.

In Android 8.0 Oreo is comes with Notification Channels and Notification Dots new features. These two help you for better management of the notifications you receive. This is achieved by concentrating a certain type of notifications on channels and allowing you to see the notifications of a single application with a long press on the icon.

In Android 8.0 we can reject notifications over a period of time and decide when we want to receive them again. In addition, we can tag and catalog the notifications through channels and it will be much more visual, showing background colors and using a systematized iconography and typography.

On the other hand, Notification Dots is a more individual way of showing us the notifications. Because now notifications will not be shown according to their order of arrival, but each will have its own space within Android Oreo depending on the category to the That belong (calls, updates, reminders …). To see the notifications for that application and not the rest as in the notifications center, we must hold down the icon. We will see a floating window where we can see the notification and interact with it.

Notification Channels group them and Notification Dots individualize them

The truth is that the new version of the operating system includes many changes, including some that we had long expected. One of the points that has improved the most is almost everything related to the notification system, as it has suffered many improvements in this new version compared to the previous one.

Floating Windows: The new fluidity

The fluid experience that stands out in Android 8.0 is not only the notifications, but the floating windows finally come, natively, to Android. Google states us that if we are a video on YouTube and we want to respond to an email, so, why do we have to stop seeing youtube? For this reason, it has now included the function of playing content in floating window.

We’ll experience this not only on YouTube also it reaches other platforms like Twitch, Vimeo or VOD services like Netflix or HBO. It would be nice if we did not have to pause the current task when we are looking at to respond to a WhatsApp. Although with the quick answers of Android 7.0 that problem is lighter now. However, when you many receive numerous messages then it is already more difficult.

Security and battery management

Google always makes improvements in these two aspects with each new version of Android being released. This is because the average user are concern for two things that cares a lot. Security and battery always have their ration of improvement in each version of Android.

Google has been sharp with the applications that run in the background, closing them completely if you see a high consumption of battery without being on the screen.

On the other hand, security has also been strengthened that are installed. Such as themes, applications. A thanks to protect the password by API by ‘autofilling’. Google make it easy for Android 8.0 that we do not write or store so many passwords. Whether we have them stored in our Google account or in third-party applications such as LastPass.

Android Go and smart text selection

With this version of Android finally release new few resources. That is Android Go, uses less hardware resources. Another important new feature in Android O is the intelligent selection of text. It will be able to assume what want to do with respect to the text that we select. That is, if the selected words correspond to an address, Google will suggest us to open Google Maps.

Picture in picture mode, tones and emoji

Picture in Picture mode comes with this new version of Android that will allow us to split the screen in two to use two applications at once.

In addition, you will notice another innovation that will make happy: the possibility of adding your own ringtones and notifications sounds easily from the settings, without resorting to the computer or third party applications.

Of course, another of the news that has been most talk about it and that has finally come true. That is the complete redesign of the emojis. Which look a little more iOS emojis.

Which phones will receive Android 8.0 Oreo?

Android 8.0

A question that concerns you all, to know if your smartphone will receive the new version of the operating system of Google. We make it easy for you to know since we offer you a complete list with all the models that will receive this update.

Google

Virtually all of Google will receive the update. All those who do not have much time and still can support the new version of Mountain View, so we show you the list of the devices of the company.

Google Pixel / Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P,Nexus Player & Pixel C

Samsung

The Korean giant had some problems distributing the update of the previous version, Android Nougat. However, it ended up reaching a large number of devices, and that is what we hope again, good support for the different families of the company.

Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8 +, Samsung Galaxy Note8, Samsung Galaxy A3, Samsung Galaxy A5, Samsung Galaxy A7, Samsung Galaxy A8, Samsung Galaxy A9 / A9 Pro, Galaxy Tab S3, Galaxy C7 Pro & Galaxy C9 Pro

Huawei, Honor

Huawei usually offers good support & pays attention to their devices. Which is why users are usually very satisfy with the brand. As they are striving to bring it closer to Android stock.  It is true that sometimes it delays more than the rest, but ends up updating the most prominent smartphones. Now Huawei they are working on the Oreo beta for Mate 9. We will have to wait to know the plans of the brand, especially each to the mid-range.

Huawei P10,Honor 9, Huawei P10 Plus, Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design, Huawei Mate 9, Huawei Mate 9 Pro

OnePlus

What to say about OnePlus, a company that appeared a few years ago and has become a benchmark in this sector. Great terminals, with awesome hardware and best of all, frequent updates that your users appreciate.

OnePlus 5, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T

Lenovo

Although it was initially thought that Lenovo would completely change Motorola. They continued to do well in terms of software support, albeit with more delays than before. If the brand follows the strategy of previous years, the Moto Z2 Force, its latest high range, would be the first to receive the new version. The firm continues to offer good support to its devices, hopefully it will continue.

Moto G5 Plus, Moto G5, Moto Z, Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Style & Moto Z2 Force

LG

As for LG, usually their high-end phones receive their attention. Given that the official list is not yet known, the first phones to upgrade to Oreo would be the LG G6, LG G6 +, LG Q6, LG V20 and LG G5. The LG V30 may come straight out with this release from the Asian firm.

Nokia

Nokia wanted to start a new path with Android, and chose well, including on their Android Stock devices. They promises to give support similar to that offered by Google with his own. So wait to see if it really meet with Android Oreo.

Nokia 8, Nokia 6, Nokia 5 & Nokia 3

HTC

The Taiwanese firm is another one that offers good support to its users. However, the list of devices is somewhat scarce. But it is expected that the three receive the new version of Google’s operating system, Android 8.0 Oreo.

HTC U11, HTC U Ultra, HTC 10

Sony

The Japanese firm also has not directly confirmed which phones will have Android 8.0. Although watching its strategy of previous years they usually offers a positive support to its users. So, it is expected that its latest high end are the first to receive their ration of Oreo. We will see what happens with Android Oreo.

Sony Xperia XZ, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Sony Xperia XZS, Sony Xperia L1, Sony Xperia XZ, Sony Xperia XZS, Sony Xperia X Performance, Sony Xperia X, Sony Xperia X Compact, Sony Xperia XA1 & Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

OnePlus

OnePlus lately is trying to behave well in terms of software support, serving more or less frequent updates from its beta program. The OnePlus 3 and 3T will receive Android O, but will not pass from there.

OnePlus 5, OnePlus 3 & OnePlus 3T

HTC

HTC also tends to behave in support of their phones, but given that their catalog is rather scarce. The list is shorter than that of its competitors. As mentioned in Engadget, the HTC U11 would see Android O and, along with the update, would enable Bluetooth 5.0. HTC has officially confirmed using a tweet. Which in addition to its current flagship, the HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 will also have the new version.

Xiaomi

The Chinese manufacturer quite often updates its MIUI layer, but Android updates are usually delay longer. At the moment they have not confirmed which smartphones will have the latest taste of Android. But they usually start with their most recent terminals with the Xiaomi Mi 6 as the most plausible candidate to receive all the news. We also hope it reaches the Xiaomi Mi Max 2, the Xiaomi Mi 5x, Xiaomi Mi 5C and the Redmi Note family.

Essential

Finally, the terminal of Andy Rubin, the father of Android, a man who left Google in 2014 with new goals. Now we have already known its first smartphone, the Essential Phone. It is more than plausible to think that it will update its only terminal to Android Oreo, and hopefully soon.

Is your mobile on the list?

Amazon Fire HD 8: A New Kindle Fire

The king of ecommerce retail Amazon is still struggling to be in the field of low-cost tablets. This year they offer only limited two models. Amazon new kindle fire Fire HD 8 & 7 tablets has its excellent value for money. That offer all the features in 16: 9 format (elongated). Since its first generation, Amazon has managed to make an impression in the market with its own tablets based on Android. What is the key of Amazon? Offering an overwhelming quality / price ratio, something they have expert from day by day.

Although not as economical as the Fire 7, this analysis of the Fire HD 8 shows us a tablet that wants to top the sales of the 8 “cheaper tablets, without losing sight of offer features that allow a solvent use in Multimedia, the main objective of this model. The new tablets inherit the traits that have marked this product since always, with plastic as the main material and the operating system itself.

Let us see it in depth.

As it could not be otherwise, this new Amazon new kindle fire HD 8 complies with the signs of the house. We find quite modest specifications, but they are easy to understand product oriented offer a good experience at a price as possible features. This is Amazon Fire HD 8 specs:

  • 8-inch IPS screen with resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels
  • MediaTek quad-core processor at 1.3GHz
  • 5 GB of RAM
  • 16-32 GB of storage, 11.1-25.3 GB available
  • Support microSD cards up to 256GB
  • Battery with up to 12 hours of autonomy, 6 hours of charge
  • WiFi dual band
  • Stereo sound with Dolby Atmos and 3.5mm jack
  • Front camera VGA and rear of 2 MP
  • Android 5.1 with Fire OS 5
  • Dimensions: 214 x 128 x 9.7 mm
  • Weight: 369 g

Few Design Changes for a Tablet that Works

new kindle fire
It is difficult to differentiate the new Amazon Fire HD 8 from the previous model. Since you will not find delicacies in designing and finishing. In all aspects, there are factor that have caught your attention. The first is that it is slightly thicker and feel weight. The second is that in this new generation, Amazon claims that it is twice as resistant as an iPad Mini of the same size. However, It has dimensions of 214 by 128 mm, dimensions not too high for an 8 “tablet, and next to the 9.2 mm thickness allows us to take this tablet with one hand. These dimensions are not too far from the Fire 7; even the new kindle fire 8 is thinner

We discuss about a very robust tablet, matte black finish is quite sober, with rounded edges that facilitate its grip, and a slightly rough surface that offers good adhesion.

On the top side, we find the button off, the port of 3.5mm jack, microphone and volume buttons (also realized in plastic, but painted in a silver color). These buttons, say that depending on the orientation of the screen will change so that changing the volume is more intuitive. On the right side we find the slot for microSD cards (that can reach 200 GB of memory), while on the other side we have two speakers. A weird location, but that does not look too bad. In addition, a micro USB socket and the audio jack in upper part of the tablet.

You may find the front camera located in the center of the upper edge, near all these connections. While the main camera is in the upper right corner, just above the Amazon logo with a glossy piano black finish.

Multimedia Display: Basic, But Acceptable

Amazon Fire HD 8
When we turned on the Amazon new kindle fire HD 8 we were pleasantly surprised at the brightness of the screen. The screen has an IPS panel with HD resolution. Real colors and good viewing angles something we appreciate from the first moment, with a suitable content visualization even with the brightness set at 50%. Even in outdoors, it will not any problem to use this tablet, there is no anti-reflection matter. So in full sun the experience ends up being quite inferior. As, IPS panel that gives us a good color quality and allows us to visualize with fidelity the colors. In addition, we know of IPS technology that allows good viewing angles.

With a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, this 8-inch screen gets a density of 189 pixels per inch, a figure that still stands above many computers, but which in tablets starts to sound small. But finding a higher figure is not something that we can easily find in models of this range, and we would have to go to much more expensive tablets.

On the opposite side there are two speakers, and include Dolbyt Atmos technology with this tablet. Synonymous with standard sound quality. No doubt, they are better designed for playing games or videos horizontally.

Power Source

Now come to the power source of battery. There is no mention of the capacity of it. Only a theoretical autonomy of 12 hours of use. But we see that its size amounts to a generous 4750 mAh.

In fact, we were surprised that in the battery test of the Geekbench3, has reached almost 12 hours of screen. Something we did not expect, and proves the excellent performance of this tablet, achieving figures much higher than those offered by the others. However, we can easily reach the 6 or 7 hours of screen, and even allow us to play repeatedly demanding games. We know, Amazon has done the homework, and we got some figures really remarkable for a tablet in this price range.

The consumption of the tablet in response is very low, proof of the good optimization carried out with this new kindle fire HD 8. Unfortunately it does not have fast charge, and to refill the battery it will take about 6 hours to fill it completely. With its reduced power, one can surf the Internet and social networks, chat or watch videos without any difficulty, and even play games. Like Clash Royale without the experience of use is diminished.

Fire OS Software

The most differential aspect of the Amazon Fire is without a doubt its operating system. Yes, we have Android, but not the Android we know, but a version customized to the extreme by Amazon, called Fire OS. Although Fire OS does not stop being a much customized version of Android.

New kindle fire OS is a system designed to take full advantage of the benefits only for Amazon services. Which is relatively fine in a way. You may find the essential applications of Mail, Calendar, Web Browser and book reader. Fire tablet users will be able to continue using Amazon’s proposal to get free payment apps service until 2019.

What we miss mainly is the absence of any Google application or service (although it can be integrated unofficially). Anyone can download APKs or use alternate stores (I’ve installed UpToDown and APToide) to fill some absences from Amazon’s application store. In the official Amazon store we can download Netflix. But when you open it will notify us that you need the services of Google to work.

One can also configure the night mode with blue light filter not to tire their eyes at night. Truly, a very essential filter makes the screen look very red-orange. Navigating is fairly easy and visual, with fairly large icons and thumbnails, and they offer a presentation that appeals to the eye. The counterpart of this visual section lies in the use of basic system applications solely and exclusively from Amazon.

Conclusions: A very good tablet for the most users

Amazon Fire HD 8
Everything on any devices is considered by the price, for the good and for the bad. But in our analysis of the Amazon new kindle fire HD 8 we tried to overlook this section to be careful to evaluate the technical specs of it.

We complete the review with a pretty clear idea about this tablet. Its strengths, weaknesses and user’e experiences. For whom is this tablet for or not? We tell you briefly.

The first thing to note is that as a tablet with a simple design. But with relatively compact dimensions, and a finish made of plastic that offers an acceptable touch and great resistance to footprints.  Battery is certainly good. As Amazon promises, about 2-3 hours of use daily it reached a 15% battery over 3 days. But If a user spends many hours with the tablet, that will undergo any day, however demanding.

The rest of the components are not very good. But it is something that we can forgive you due to its price. What we did not like is the camera. Which does not meet the minimum as we demand in smartphone or a camera tablets. Display screen offers a good level of brightness. Although its resolution is not of the highest, and the produced reflexes are somewhat annoying. However, this is very convenient so that the performance offered by your processor is sufficient for any user.

The new Amazon new kindle fire HD 8-inch costs of 109 euros the model with 16GB of storage and ads on the screen lock. If you are a member of Amazon Prime you can buy it for 89 euros to the August, 17. A very competitive price if you are looking for a basic multimedia tablet, for children or elderly people.
