I had a Kindle 7 for 6 years. It was time for an upgrade. Definitely faster! They have uncluttered by reducing all the redundant screens. It’s down to three. I use it for work and online meetings in Zoom. The camera, speakers and Mike work really well. It paired with my iPhone, HP printer, wireless keyboard and generic headphones easily. The battery last way longer. I only charge it 2 times a week and I use it about three hours a night. I can’t comment on durability because I haven’t dropped it and I keep it in a padded case. But I’m not hard on electronics, I had my other Kindle for six years with no cracks or scratches on the screen.
Great little reader tablet. Fits nicely in your hand, your purse or bag. The battery life is awesome as it holds a charge for several days. Took it with me on a flight and I actually like this better than my iPad when it comes to reading. You can also add more apps like Zoom, STARZ, Netflix, etc. And you can add more storage
I caught this on sale but after having it, I would have gladly paid full price

I can read the books I write and see them as e-books instead of how they look on my desktop. As an author I want to see what readers see, so my books are easy to read professional looking.
Omg! I absolutely love this new tablet. My neighbor had stolen my kindle 7 what a nightmare . But what a wonderful upgrade. I even bought a great cover for it! I believe thru amazon as well. I plan on purchasing an second one when it goes on sale for the great deal I got it for. Very happy I bought it. As always thanks amazon.

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.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.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.
Amazon Fire HD 8 review: A good, cheap tablet with one big compromiseAmazon'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

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus review: Wireless charging adds to the appealAn 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?
A:AnswerHello Caro, here are some of the features for the new Fire HD 8 Plus: 8" HD display, 2X the storage (32 or 64 GB of internal storage and up to 1 TB with microSD card) + 3 GB RAM. Up to 12 hours of battery life and now with USB-C for easier charging. Fully charges in under 4 hours (with included cable and adapter). There's two 2MP cameras on the front and back as well. The new HD 8 Plus also features a game mode for an optimized gaming experience and Blue Shade which helps offer a more comfortable reading experience, especially at night. Hope this helps!
This tablet does have an internet browser, it uses the Silk Browser. I am not sure if it would work very well as these tablets only have a 2G of Ram, meaning they are not very fast when running huge programs like that. This is not a computer, but just a light version, and does not have all of the processing power of a computer. It also does not have the ability to download apps like Word and Excel, but there are versions of Word Processors/Note pads you could download.
