I own both a Samsung Galaxy 2 7.0 (Student Edition) and a 16GB Kindle Fire HD 7".
Those two devices are so dramatically different that you have to decide whether or not you want a general purpose tablet or an Amazon-centric media consumption device.
The screen and sound on the KFHD is absolutely beautiful. As a simple media player for music and movies, it is terrific. I've sideloaded a few video and music players and it is quite nice. The lack of a microSD slot is an issue for me and prevents me from loading up a bunch of movies and music.
The GTab is also quite nice. Performance is not quite as snappy as the KFHD, but it is fine and not a distraction.
What cool new KF features do you believe that you're missing out on? I'm not that big into the Amazon ecosystem so I know that I'm not experiencing any of them firsthand.
