Here is my beef. The trade in program is a joke. They quote you $10 for the 8th Gen and when you mail it in they say that it didn't meet standards and reduce the amount to $5 and charge you the extra $5. I don't know how mine didn't meet the standards. It had a screen protector since day 1 and a case. No scratches, not blemishes, full charge, wiped as ordered. This seems to not meet their standards. I have been hosed on their trade in program before trading in a Echo 1st Gen so you would think I would have learned my lesson. Amazon gives you a joke of a trade in and then they cut that joke in half or all together and expect you to just grin and bare it.
BE WARNED, DO NOT USE THE TRADE IN PROGRAM. While I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon I will never promote their trade in program and I will voice my opinion anytime someone is thinking of using it. Shame on you Amazon.
Yes, the new Fire HD 8 and 8 Plus are somewhat faster than previous models – but previous models work just fine for almost everything we do with a small tablet: email, video, and web browsing. The screen on the new Fire 8 is the same resolution and size as on previous models, even though the body of the new Fire 8 is now wider (which means you’ll need a new case, too).
So what do you get for $89 or (for the Plus) $109? You get a USB-C connection, and a modest speed increase. That’s it. There is nothing here that defines the new Fire 8 as “all new.” This tablet is billed as “allowing you to enjoy your favorite apps,” but you could already do that with previous models. And the heavily-touted battery life of 12 hours? That’s the same claim Amazon made for the Fire 8 in 2018!
A truly useful step would have been an upgraded screen, but we don’t get that feature on the Fire 8.
If you are eager to get a new 8” tablet, you may want to consider other products. For instance, the new Lenovo Smart Tab M8 costs $99, but for the extra $10 you get a tablet with the same size screen, RAM, and processor speed as the Fire 8, but the M8 is physically smaller, lighter, has a metal body (instead of plastic like the Fire), and ships with smart charging dock for no additional cost.
Someday, Amazon will create a tablet that is indeed “all new.” Today is not that day.
The one case listed on amazon has the access for the camera, power and volume buttons in the wrong place.
- Amazing Battery Life!!
- Alexa 'Show Mode' - like having a wireless Echo Show!
- Text-to-Speech functionality for Kindle
- Expandable Memory up to 1TB
- Dolby Speakers = decent sound quality
- Has a 3.5mm Audio Jack
- 3GB RAM & Wireless Charging (Plus model)
- Angreat 10W Wireless Charging Dock (sold separately) is well-designed
A few minor gripes:
- I wish the included charging cable were longer, but I ordered a wireless charging dock
- It would be great if the 'Plus' model came in more colors
- Camera quality could be improved
- Fingerprint Magnet
- Google Play Store not included by default
