The tablet market has gained a new competitor with the addition of the Google Pixel Tablet, meaning it might be time to think twice before opting for a typical go-to option, such as an Amazon, Samsung, or Apple tablet. If you’re thinking about investing in the new Google Pixel Tablet, you might be wondering how it compares to the Amazon Fire.

When it comes to tablet purchases, investing in product protection is just as important as deciding which tablet to buy. If your tablet isn't covered, that means it's vulnerable to breaks, cracks, spills, and more, which leaves you on the hook for expensive repair and replacement costs. When you subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited, you can get coverage for all your electronic devices under the same product protection plan, for just $9.99 a month.

So, what are the differences between the Google Pixel Tablet and the Amazon Fire, and which one should you buy? Here’s everything you need to know:

Google Pixel Tablet vs. Amazon Fire: How do they compare?

The Google Pixel Tablet is Google’s first tablet release in several years, and it seems that Google has made some major improvements in its tablet design. Designed to function not only as a tablet, but as a smart hub for your home, it comes with both a dock and speaker stand. Although the Google Pixel Tablet can function as a standard tablet on its own, it offers additional functionality when docked, including acting as a voice-controlled assistant or even a digital photo frame.

Here’s a look at the Google Pixel Tablet specs compared to the Amazon Fire:

Even just a quick glance at the specs shows that the differences between the Google Pixel Tablet and the Amazon Fire tablet are significant, starting with the price. While the Google Pixel Tablet starts at $499, the Amazon Fire 10 HD Plus is only $179.99. Although the quality is in part reflected in the price (as is obvious by looking at the specs), if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly tablet, the Amazon Fire is a good option.

When it comes to choosing between the Google Pixel Tablet and the Amazon Fire, there’s a lot to think about. If you’re a loyal Amazon Prime member and already enjoy other Amazon products, the Amazon Fire offers plenty of useful perks, including compatibility with Alexa and voice control.

According to Google, the Pixel Tablet is well worth its price tag. With a dock and speaker station included, a Google Tensor G2 chip, and superiority in nearly every category compared to the Amazon Fire Tablet, the Google Pixel Tablet will likely be a better purchase if you can swallow the price.

Final thoughts

In the end, whether the Google Pixel Tablet or Amazon Fire is best depends on what matters most to you in a tablet. If you’re looking for a way to increase smart home functionality in your living space, the Google Pixel Tablet is a great option, while the Amazon Fire falls short in that department.

Whether you opt for the Google Pixel Tablet or choose the Amazon Fire, it’s important to think about product protection. Tablets are expensive purchases, and the last thing you want is to have to pay for expensive repair or replacement costs when an accident happens.
