cons

  • One slight disadvantage is that it runs on Fire OS 5, and although it is a variant of Android, you are limited to the apps available for download and installation through Amazon's Appstore as the Google Play Store app is not present on the tablet.GH2017

                    Amazon's 2017 Fire HD 8 remains one of today's best tablet deals. At $10 cheaper than the 2016 edition and with improved battery life, this tablet delivers tremendous value for its price, despite middling hardware specs and a chunky chassis.Full Review

                    The Amazon Fire HD 8 is one of the cheapest tablets you can buy from a recognisable brand. It costs around £79.99, and unlike similarly priced Android slates it's not completely terrible.Full Review
