Amazon Fire HD 8 review (2020): Cheap for a reason

 

The Amazon Fire HD 8 integrates with Amazon services and has Alexa built-in -- but with only mediocre performance and an under-par display, it's a tough sell.

Amazon integration ; Ultra-affordable ; Good battery life ; Alexa

Software can feel like an advertisement ; Sluggish performance ; Under-par display

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) Review

 

Amazon's inexpensive Fire HD 8 tablet continues to be an excellent value for the price, but its poor app store is really starting to feel limiting.

Limited app compatibility ; Sluggish performance

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review

 

The Amazon Fire HD 8 has budget-friendly specs, so squash your iPad expectations

Super affordable ; Fun Alexa features ; Amazing battery life ; USB Type-C port ; Perfect for Prime subscribers

So-so display ; Ad heavy ; Limited app store

The 2020 Amazon Fire HD 8 has a 13-hour battery life and features a USB Type-C port, but its ad-heavy Fire OS isn’t for everyone.

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review

 

Amazon's medium-sized tablet gets a small upgrade in a few areas, although perhaps not the right areas.

Super-low price Great front camera placement Headphone jack and USB-C

Poor screen quality Locked to Amazon’s ecosystem Feels cheap in the hand

The Amazon Fire HD 8 is a tablet designed for people who are dedicated users of the company’s entertainment offerings, with the tablet working well as a portable media system. However, it’s not a huge upgrade from its 2018 predecessor, with only a few...

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review

 

A diminutive, likeable and gifted Fire HD tablet

Clear and competent picture ; Expansive sound ; Snappy operation

Nothing of note

The Amazon Fire HD 8 sounds good, its display is very capable for streaming TV shows, and the hands-free Alexa is a lovely perk

All-new Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review: The best budget tablet

 

Amazon's Fire HD 8 gets a faster processor, more RAM and USB-C for 2020

Still great value ; Much-needed hardware upgrades ; Huge battery life improvement

£10 more expensive than last year ; Fire OS restrictions remain

Once again, Amazon has cooked up a fantastically priced tablet with its newest Fire HD 8. The 2018 model was already a five-star product, so Amazon's decision to boost performance, extend the battery life and add USB-C charging for 2020 was always...

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review

 

Stoking the Fire

Properly affordable ; Solid battery life ; Decent stereo speakers

Restrictive Amazon interface ; Screen quality remains average ; No Charging Dock option

A limited update for Amazon’s bargain slate, but it's still the best mid-size tablet you can get for less than £100 – provided you’re a Prime subscriber
