Tiny changes for Amazon’s low-cost tablet

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017)

from TechRadar
There’s no major new hardware in the 2017 edition of the Fire HD 8, but it’s still one of the only decent sub-$100/£100 tablets. It’s not worth upgrading from last year’s Fire HD 8, though... Full review

A great cheap tablet gets even cheaper

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017)

from Cnet
If you're a Prime user, the 2017 edition of the HD 8 is a great value -- and an excellent option for kids who don't really need an expensive iPad. (Amazon offers extensive parental controls.) Despite its middling display, you just won't find a tablet with these features and performance at this price point... Full review

One of the cheapest tablets you can buy from a recognisable brand

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017)

from TrustedReviews
The Amazon Fire HD 8 is a good tablet at a great price, making it easy to recommend if £100 is your absolute maximum budget. Its screen is fair, the build quality is fine and there’s plenty of storage. While it doesn’t feel incredibly fast, it has enough power to do justice to some of Android’s most impressive games. Plus having Alexa on a tablet is a nice touch, if far from essential...

Still great value

Amazon Fire 7 (2017)

from PC Advisor
The Fire 7 is a very minor update to the 2015 7in Fire tablet. It’s a shame that the processor and cameras haven’t been upgraded, but the low price makes it hard to complain. It remains great value and a great way to use Amazon’s services including video and music – as well as Alexa. The absence of all things Google will be a deal-breaker for some, but it’s an excellent choice for kids or undemanding adults... Full review

Remains a decent tablet for those on a tight budget

Amazon Fire 7 (2017)

from TrustedReviews
There’s not been a massive sea change between Fire 7 generations. Aside from the addition of Alexa and some slight improvements to networking and battery life, it’s all pretty standard for a Fire tablet... Full review

A minor update of a great family tablet

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017)

from Recombu
If you want an affordable tablet for the whole family, the new Fire HD8 2017 is a solid choice - as long as you buy into Amazon’s ecosystem, of course. You get full parental controls and fast access to all of your content, including those awesome Prime services and the ever-growing Alexa assistant. Considering the low asking price, the specs aren’t too shabby either... Full review

Small improvements make Amazon's budget tablet a better bargain

Amazon Fire 7 (2017)

from Cnet
Despite its performance limitations, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better entry-level tablet than the 2017 Amazon Fire 7... Full review

Worthy of consideration as an entry-level entry into the world of tablets

Amazon Fire (2015)

from Notebookcheck
Considering what the Fire Tablet (2015) sells for, it definitely has its appeals. The build quality is decent, the IPS panel features great viewing angle stability and the color accuracy is acceptable as well. The purchase prise is unrivaled, as it is incredibly low. The battery life is sufficient, even though other entry-level tablets last longer than the Kindle - sometimes significantly so... Full review

The best budget tablet you can buy, as long as you can live without Google

Amazon Fire (2015)

from PC Advisor

It's certainly not perfect, and the lack of Google apps will still put some people off, but the Fire is excellent value at under £50. The latest Fire OS is so Android-like that it's easy to use, and the Fire for Kids app makes it possible to limit what you kids can do and how long they can use the tablet. For some people it's well worth paying double for the Kids Edition version as you get the bumper case and the great warranty. There are some sore points: the poor cameras, the sluggish performance at times, and the long charging time. But at this price it's hard to complain. And you... Full review

Amazon-powered media tablet

Amazon Fire HD 8

from The Wirecutter
Most people use tablets for streaming video, browsing the web, and reading. The Amazon Fire HD 8 excels at all three. It uses Amazon’s services, not Google’s, which means no Google Play Store or Google apps by default (though you can add them, with effort, if you’re technically inclined). A $90 tablet still involves a lot of compromises, but Amazon has refined its tablet formula over the years. Despite a low-end, quad-core processor and only 1.5 GB of RAM, the tablet still manages solid performance for basic tasks... Full review

I purchased the phone strictly for development reasons with no plans to activate it. Based on pre-release reviews and comments, I expected a gimmicky phone. The first day or so, I just played around with the features, some seems strong while other seemed gimmicky. On the third day, I actually set the phone up completely all my accounts and apps. That's when the phone really came a live. The homescreen carousel works great for multitasking and showing recent activity within an app and shortcut widgets to app specific tasks. I love that each individual GameCircle app has homescreen details on accomplishments. I find myself using the phone one handed, utilizing the phone motions to slide in menus and settings shade. These features in the first few days seemed gimmicky but I actually found myself using and preferring them because they provide easier one-handed interactions. I could go into a ton more details, solid hardware, great case, etc. But the best summary is simply to say, I gave my iPhone to my daughter because I now plan to actually activate the Fire phone.
