HTC EVO View 4G Tablet Review
The HTC EVO View 4G falls behind in areas like battery life and screen performance.
Amazon Kindle Fire
Device & Specs
From a hardware standpoint, the HTC EVO View 4G drubs the Kindle Fire with better hardware almost across the board, along with the added cameras, RAM, and bluetooth. If you're looking for a tablet that is unencumbered rather than pretty-looking, stick with the HTC EVO View 4G.
Both have great screens with a similar size and resolution, but the HTC EVO View 4G 's is slightly less reflective than that of the Kindle Fire.
The Kindle Fire has far better battery life than the HTC EVO View 4G, lasting hours longer in both reading eBooks and playing back video.
As far as eReaders go, it's hard to beat a Kindle device that has access to the Kindle Lending Library for Prime users, and given that both devices are very similar in size, but the Fire has the better battery, we'll go with the Fire on this one.
This is a slam-dunk win for the HTC EVO View 4G, as it has full access to the Google suite of applications, including the Play Store and location services. The Fire, on the other hand, has only access to the Amazon app store, which has so far to go to even come close to sniffing the selection that the Play Store offers.
