Amazon Fire HD 8 review: A good, cheap tablet with one big compromise

 

Amazon's new Fire HD 8 Plus has all of the improvements that the regular Fire HD 8 has: a sleeker design, a faster processor, USB-C charging and a solid battery life. To make it “Plus,” Amazon added an extra gigabyte of RAM, wireless charging...

Refined design ; New USB-C charging ; Decent performance ; Hands-free Alexa ; Long battery life

Still no Google apps ; Some lag time when switching between apps ; Most useful for those who use a lot of Amazon products/services

While it costs $10 more than the previous version, an upgraded processor, USB-C charging and other small enhancements keep the 2020 Fire HD 8 in barga

 

While it costs $10 more than the previous version, an upgraded processor, USB-C charging and other small enhancements keep the 2020 Fire HD 8 in bargain territory -- but for just a little more money, the Plus version beckons.

It costs $20 more than the standard HD 8, but a small performance boost and wireless charging make the HD Plus worth the extra cost.

Fire HD 8 Plus review: the Amazon appliance

 

A $110 tablet that's good for watching Prime video and not much else

Cheap ; Works as an Echo Show on a wireless charging dock ; Lots of Prime content ; Parental controls, multi-user support

Slow ; Dim, mediocre screen ; No Google apps without hacky workarounds

Amazon’s Fire HD 8 tablet starts at $90 and goes up to $140 with a wireless charger bundle. It’s a Fire OS tablet that runs Android apps, but what it’s really meant for is watching Prime video, calling on Alexa, and reading Kindle books. It’s good that...

The Fire 8 HD Plus is easy to recommend to casual tablet users. Find out more in this Amazon Fire 8 HD Plus review.

Inexpensive ; Amazon Alexa built in ; USB-C charging ; Long battery life ; Stereo speakers ; Headphone jack

Screen only so-so ; Choppy performance ; Aggressive Amazon software ; Low-res cameras ; Takes long time to charge

The Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus is easy to recommend to those who want a tablet for watching videos or listening to music. The performance is definitely limited, but its low price makes it a painless purchase for casual tablet users.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus review: Wireless charging adds to the appeal

 

An affordable and capable tablet. But the Plus doesn't mean it's bigger or resolute over the normal version. So is this the device for you?

Great value for money ; Great sound quality ; Good battery life ; Wireless charging ; Great for Prime subscribers

Display not the brightest and reflections can be a problem ; Not hugely powerful ; AppStore needs better quality control

The Fire HD 8 Plus is an affordable tablet that's substantially built, with the convenience of wireless charging giving the potential for use as an Echo Show if you buy the additional dock, making it a convenient affordable home tablet. It's not the...

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus

 

Amazon adds wireless charging and (slightly) better performance to its eight-inch tablet, which can also double as an Echo Show.

All-new Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus (2020) review: Should you spend more?

 

With wireless charging, extra RAM and a faster charger, is the Fire HD 8 Plus worth the extra money?

Better battery life than Fire HD 8 ; Wireless charging and extra RAM ; Hardware improvements on 2018 model

Regular Fire HD 8 is better value ; Wireless Charging Dock not included

It’s a tablet I would have no hesitation in recommending, although it falls just short of a Best Buy for the simple reason that the Fire HD 8 offers better value for money. Unless you’re keen to use the Fire HD 8 Plus as a tablet-cum-smart display, I’d...
