iPad Mini 2 vs Kindle Fire HDX vs Nexus 7 2013 features, specs review and comparison

Not everyone is a big fan of 10 inch tablets and prefer a smaller tablet than the standard size. For all such people there are three new tablets in the market – Nexus 7 2013, Amazon Kindle Fire HDX and the Apple iPad Mini 2 with Retina display. And all the three are giving a tough competition to each other.

Surprisingly, when these tablets were compared with each other, the iPad Mini2 held the last spot. There is no image retention feature in the iPad Mini 2 and neither has the company made any significant changes to the color gamut of the tablet.

The Nexus 7 2013 features a poly silicon display whereas the iPad Mini 2 features an indium gallium zinc oxide display. The Kindle Fire HDX on the other hand sports a Quantum dots display.

The Nexus 7 2013 has an amazing display that makes use of the highest LCD performance with its low temperature poly silicon (LTPS).

The technology provides 100 percent color gamut and also has the brightest display in the market right now. However, even with such high resolution and ppi, it offers only 63 percent color gamut of the original iPad Mini.

The Kindle Fire HDX has increased power efficiency as well as 100 percent color gamut, and with its Quantum dots technology it is surely going to revolutionize the displays in the coming five years. It is the first display to offer highly saturated primary colors which are quite similar to OLED displays.

After seeing the iPad Air, there were very high expectations from the iPad Mini 2 but it just could not deliver as expected.

It offers full SRGB just like the MacBook Pro with deviations in the color magenta, blue and red. The reflective display can be a little disappointing as it is only 30% as bright as the Nexus 7. For users who buy tablets to watch movies and videos, it can be a little disappointing and a drawback compared to the Nexus 7 2013 and the Kindle Fire HDX.
