Smooth and glossy
The plastic back feels smooth and it's comfortable when holding.
The simpler, the better
The Fire HD 8 runs simple mobile games smoothly, but anything more intense slows down performance.
If you get the 8GB model of the tablet, don't forget a memory card! You'll really need it.
With the new ASAP feature, the tablet pre-buffers your videos so you wait less for them to load.
Portable and compact
The 8-inch tablet is small enough to throw in your bag for a commute or travel.
The power button sits next to the microUSB port and microphone pinhole.
New search bar
When you type in a search request, you get results from Bing, the Amazon store, and your library.
Not bad for a budget buy
The inexpensive tablet's meek hardware is overshadowed by Amazon's robust library of Prime content. Offering free video, games and apps on the inexpensive tablet, what's not to like?
