Insanely good budget tablet
All right so I was scrolling through the reviews and read some pretty ridiculous reasons to not give this tablet five stars. One such was that the tablet weighed a whole 3 oz more and that resulted in a 3 star review. Let me start off by saying if that is the reason for giving a crap review that is ridiculous. It says the tablet weight depends on the manufacturing. The other funny one is that someone is upset with the "special offers" on the front screen. That's why you get a cheap and good tablet. It even says in the discription that there will be ads on the lock screen. It takes a second to swipe up and unlock the screen. So the bad reviews are just reviews by people looking to nit-pick.
This tablet is exactly what Amazon was describing. It is cheap, looks good, loads apps quickly, expandable storage, good speakers, decent screen and all while staying under 80 bucks.
The start up didn't take long and it came preloaded with my account on it. For 80 dollars this is a good buy and the complaints on the wieght and the ads are ridiculous reasons to give this tablet a shabby review.
Buy this tablet if you want a cheap e-reader that can also sure the web, watch movies and shows, check Facebook or Twitter, or read books on. Ignore the negative reviews and you won't be disappointed.

Kindle Fire HD8
By Jane Johnson, Reviewer
This is the first Amazon Kindle Fire that I have owned. I have always one for other options thinking that the Kindle Fire was not what I wanted. I was very, very wrong. This next generation of tablets are amazing!
It has about 12 hours battery life, it has many settings that you can use to save your battery by going off Wifi if you don't need it. It is an 8 inch HD display, it has a quad core processor, 1.3 gigahertz. It it has 16 or 32 gigabytes of internal storage, and a MicroSD slot for up to 256GB. So you really have a lot of storage! It is so well made, I was surprised, because I have three other tablets which take forever to open. The Amazon Fire comes on instantly. You push the "on" button and it's on. It also contains 'Alexa', which will be really helpful in accessing information and entertainment. You can ask questions, play music, check your calendar, you can get news, and weather, and so much more. Just press the home button and ask 'Alexa'. You can enjoy hundreds of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle ebooks you can even have a text- to-speech narrator, who will read the book to you! How AWESOME is that? I can't say enough about this tablet. I love it. It has Netflix, Facebook, HBO and Spotify. Prime members get unlimited access to so many things at no additional cost. I would highly recommend this tablet to anyone! It seems to have brought us into a different venue. if not just a tablet anymore, it now has Alexa and she'll show you how to navigate through this tablet. From one app to another just by speaking.
It comes in a variety of colored covers. But this is not a tablet case. If you want a tablet that is completely covered, front and back, you will have to buy a case separately. The case that comes with your Kindle Fire is just the back side of the case it does not cover the front. If this review has helped you in any way, please hit the "helpful" button at the end of the review. Thank you for reading my review.

I had low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I had low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. But, keep in mind that this is not an iPad or typical Android tablet. This is an Amazon media and shopping machine. It is well built, has good battery life, reasonably fast and responsive, dual band wifi, SD card slot, decent display and so-so camera. No tablet is going to give you awesome sound, but I was surprised at how well the two speakers sound on this tablet. No tablet it going to give you a great camera, and this tablet is probably on the lower end of the spectrum - it works, but it won't be your go-to camera for important shots. This tablet excels at playing Amazon content - music and video. It is a great reader, although a little heavy compared to a Kindle device. It makes shopping easy - perhaps too easy. The OS is based on Android, but don't look for Google Play or Google apps in general - this is nothing like an Android tablet. Finally, you can't beat the price. I think Amazon wants to get these in the hands of as many people as possible. I would have given this 4.5 stars if that option was available. I didn't give it 5 stars only because it is not a general purpose tablet. This is a dramatic improvement over the Fire 7. The integration of Alexa is flawless and works very well - depends on whether or not you have an Echo and on how you feel about that product. I have an Echo and find it useful (not essential but useful). I find myself using Alexia on this tablet more than I thought I would.
