Amazon Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 review

 

Unless you're immersed in the world of Amazon and all it has to offers, we'd look elsewhere besides the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10.

Amazon Fire HD 8 review: Affordable media consumption for Prime members

 

The 8-inch Fire HD tablet has an HD screen to enjoy free TV shows, movies and games -- if you have an Amazon Prime membership.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 is affordably priced and houses a microSD card slot for extra storage. The screen is bright and the speakers are satisfyingly loud. Amazon Prime members can stream or download movies and TV shows in the Prime library, and download...

The plastic design feels cheap. Large games are slow to load and gameplay gets occasionally sluggish. Performance can also lag when downloading apps or video. To truly take advantage of what the tablet has to offer, you need an Amazon Prime membership.

Amazon Fire HD 8 is an affordable way for the whole family to take advantage of all the Prime media library perks that come with the cost of membership.

Amazon Fire HD 8 review: An affordable and family-friendly media consumption tablet for Amazon Prime members

 

Just like Disney World, the Amazon Fire HD 8 is fun for the whole family. Unlike The Happiest Place on Earth, this tablet won't cost you an arm and a leg. Starting at $150 (around £130 or AU$215 if converted), the Fire HD 8 offers tons of features for...

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2015) Tablet Review

 

A flash in the pan. Amazon's Fire HD 8 tablet features an HD screen and the brand new Fire OS 5 Bellini operating system with the familiar software restrictions. The starting price is 160 Euros (~$175) – if the user can live with adware. In this review...

bright IPS screen, good color reproduction, decent stereo sound, good build, fast dual-band Wi-Fi, expandable storage

tied to Amazon, low system performance, low resolution, very scratch-susceptible rear, no GPS, NFC or UMTS/LTE, middling camera modules

Amazon's Fire HD 8 still achieves "Good" in our rating. The positive aspects are its color accuracy, the IPS screen, fast dual-band Wi-Fi and decent stereo speakers. The buyer will not find an ambient light sensor or NFC. The system performance could...

Amazon Fire HD8 review

 

Amazon's low-cost Fire HD8 tablet is the ideal companion to Amazon Prime. With Prime membership, you can use the tablet to watch movies and TV shows on the move, as well as streaming music, playing games and using popular apps. You can try Prime free...

The Fire HD8 is a very cheap tablet that's best suited to casual users who already have an Amazon Prime subscription. It's geared entirely to entertainment rather than productivity, with a focus on casual gaming, music and video streaming. That makes...

Amazon Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 hands-on: Superslim entertainment slates for the whole family

 

Along with a new 4K Fire TV and a cheap as chips £50 tablet, Amazon has also introduced two new devices at the upper end of its range that are better geared for those who want a bit more oomph, a better screen and slimmer profile than ever before.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Review: Hands-on

 

Amazon Fire HD 8 review: There's a new family of tablets on the block courtesy of Amazon and we went hands-on with the middle sibling, the Fire HD 8.

Expandable storage ; First to run Fire OS 5 ; Affordable

Fingerprint magnet ; Cheap aesthetics ; Lacklustre screen

This new ‘HD’ tablet family and the Fire HD 8 in particular round out Amazon’s device family nicely, bridging the gap between the basic Fire slates and last year’s update HDX pairing..
