Let's Break Down the Specs and Features
Front and Rear
What I Like About the Kindle Fire HD
The Kindle Fire HD has a program called FreeTime Unlimited that runs between $2.99 and $9.99. It has around 10,000 apps, books, and TV clips for kids. It is a monthly subscription fee but has an abundance of content from Nickelodeon, Disney Pixar, Warner Bros. and more.
The other great features of this tablet are the outstanding WiFi. It is dual band dual antenna and faster than an iPad Mini by more than 33%. It also has an outstanding battery life for lots of hours of use between charges. The last big feature I want to mention is the Dolby Digital Speakers. They sound amazing along with the look of it's HD screen.
What I like About the Kurio 7s
The Kurio 7s has co-developed educational content with Professor Mr Nussbaum. This content is great for elementary school kids and not only helpful for kids but a lot of fun to keep them engaged.
They have also developed what I consider to be the best parental controls that have more options. The web safe browser has 4 options or security levels for members of the family at any age. Each if the 8 profiles can be set individually.
Another one of the features that I like is the expandable memory up to 32 GB. This gives you the option to add whatever media you want via the SD card and not have to worry about the space. The HDMI port is also invaluable if you want to connect your tablet to a TV and view movies or apps on a big screen.
Which Kids Tablet is Actually the Best Family Tablet
Without a doubt I would choose the Kurio 7s over any tablet if it was going to be used by multiple family members. It is a very versatile tablet with great features and a great web filter. It also has more options of app choices because it contains the Kurio store, Amazon app store, and 1 Mobile Market.
The expandable memory also makes it very appetizing. It has 2 cameras which allow pictures and videos. It's not an iPad but you get all of these functions for a quarter of the price.
Another great aspect of the company is how active they are with their customers. Just today I sent a message to their Media Team with Facebook and they contacted me in a very short period.
Between the educational value, great parental controls, more functions, expandable memory, great entertainment, and excellent customer service it is a very easy decision in the Kurio 7s vs the Amazon Kindle Fire HD to see why Kurio 7s is the clear winner.
