What's up price five fans I'm Brian Tong and since -- seven inch tablet is the new black in the tech world. We're facing off the top two contenders in -- throw down show down. It's a price -- punch out between Google's nexus seven -- Amazon's Kindle fire. Our judges for this fight are senior editor -- that take -- Franklin senior editor Donald saved by the bell and myself. -- Don't think all three judges' blind scores and I've been out from -- sensible point -- final prize by score. All around the same system -- growth of both round one is design. Nexus that is one of the best looking at seven inch tablet designs we've seen things -- -- has -- its partnership. It's beveled -- with a group incorporated -- feels great it's lighter in weight and its seven inch screen pops with a higher 216 pixels per inch. Now Amazon brings -- -- the most generic tablet designs we've ever seen it's a little heavy for its size but it's not ugly just kind of forgettable. Its seven inch screen looks all -- with its 169 pixels -- its density but this tablet just won't allow you. And the Kindle fire gets a three point seven next round is controls and user in a but the next. Android OS -- -- It's super clean and snappy -- up in the customization. With the widgets that automatically resize themselves and adopt clear out village you also -- -- in it. Notification is still a staple here plus -- brings physical power and volume buttons. Now the Kindle fire things having the fewest bugs possible was a good idea. But in awkwardly placed power -- -- on the bottom center and no physical volume -- is horrible. It's custom Android interface is extremely simplified and it gets you write your content. That's a blessing for some users but the judges felt like we were restricted by its limited options especially compared -- The round four point three and the Kindle fire gets a three after averaging two rounds the nexus seven by more. The -- next round of -- Both tablets bring Wi-Fi in front facing camera but come with no memory expansion slot. We -- facing camera or video output ports. -- the nexus seven brings Bluetooth. One gig of ram and either eight gigs or sixteen gigs of storage. But his steps up its feature -- -- jelly beans approval now which helps deliver relevant info like whether public -- and nearby businesses. The more you use -- services. Seven Cisco giants. The giants lost the Padres six -- they are playing the Dodgers today at 7:15 PM. Now Android -- lets you exchange data with two nearby devices its voice commands are second to none. And it's Google -- -- has a more robust selection of apps and content. Now the Kindle fire only comes at -- -- of storage and 512 megs of ram and it's really depending on its cloud service to pick up the slack. Its biggest feature is its content library for Amazon prime members. We have access to free movies and TV shows books and music content. The fire also has its own version of the Google -- store that's overseen by Amazon and it limits on the air app selection. The nexus seven -- -- -- round with a four and the Kindle fire gets a three next round is web browsing and multi media. Google's nexus seven brings the best web browsing experiences even -- -- flash support. -- Chrome browser that has more features a smoother pinch and zoom and an -- comparisons. Bloated webpages faster than Amazon silk browser. The Kindle fire's browser is solid and it supports flash and is no child but it's just not on the same level. Video quality -- all -- devices but I'd give the nexus seven the edge when it came to Netflix and YouTube streaming with its higher resolution screen. Are you guys in a pattern here of the nexus seven. And the fire gets. Background in four -- Google still has a big lead the final. The nexus seven performance was sold throughout this prize -- with a snappy -- OS. And crisper video and images based -- Nvidia tegra three Quad Core processor and sharper display. Now in our video playback battery drain test the nexus seven gave us ten point one hours of video playback with Wi-Fi turned up. Compared to just six point eight hours of playback from the Kindle fire. Now normal data they use both tablets were -- and had similar battery life that will vary wildly depending on usage. But in the final round the nexus seven does it one more time with the fourth and the Kindle fire. -- let's average out all five rounds and this one won't be a surprise the nexus seven. -- it does smack them down on the Kindle fire and when he four point 12 point nine.
