The new Amazon Fire HD 8 is a pretty impressive tablet for it’s price point. With 1.5 gb of ram and a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, a bigger battery and more base storage, the Amazon Fire HD 8 is a better performing tablet for close to half the price than the previous version. There are a few drawbacks. The display isn’t as sharp as other tables on the market and it charges fairly slow compared to other tablets. If you’re looking for a affordable tablet, the Amazon Fire HD 8 performs very well for it’s price. There aren’t any other tablets at this price range that can compare. If you’re looking to pick one up, you can grab one over at Amazon.
