Amazon Fire HD 8 review: A cheap tablet that's actually good


Amazon 8-inch tablet has more base memory (16GB), zippier performance, better battery life and a 40 percent lower price tag ($90). That adds up to a pretty sweet bargain.

The latest Fire HD 8 delivers faster performance, a bigger battery and more base storage than the previous version for almost half the price. Its 8-inch screen is bright, the speakers are loud and it offers expandable microSD storage and ample parental...

Display isn't as sharp as that of current iPad Mini models; to truly take advantage of what the tablet has to offer, you need an Amazon Prime membership; slow charging (takes 6 hours to fully cap battery).

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 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.
