Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review: Design and key features

As I mentioned earlier, the Fire HD 8’s kiến thiết changes are relatively minor, but it is possible lớn spot a few subtle differences if you look hard enough. Amazon’s budget tablet is still encased in a tough textured plastic with large screen-bordering bezels, but Amazon has clearly designed this new tablet khổng lồ be used in landscape orientation, rather than the portrait-friendly thiết kế of the previous model.

The 2-megapixel selfie camera now sits above one of the screen’s long edges, and the nguồn button, volume rocker và 3.5mm headphone socket are located to the right. This area of the tablet also includes the new USB-C port. This charges the tablet from zero to full in less than five hours, which is still rather slow. A pair of speakers point upwards on the top edge, and the microSD slot, which can take cards up to lớn 1TB in capacity, is on the bottom.

This is a cheap tablet, so you shouldn’t expect luxurious finishes & materials, but the Fire HD 8 remains a well-made, robust-feeling device. It’s lightweight at only 355g, doesn’t flex or bend under mojaocena.comnsiderable pressure, & it’s well built, with only a slim gap separating the glass-topped screen và plastic backing. The Fire HD 8 can be picked up in a choice of four pastel mojaocena.comlours: black, plum, twilight blue and white.

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review: Display

Despite receiving a fresh lick of paint in other areas, the Fire HD 8’s display remains largely unchanged. It still measures 8in across the diagonal – it would be weird if it didn’t – and uses an IPS panel with a resolution of 1,280 x 800.

Due to lớn the kích thước and low resolution, a px density of just 189ppi makes for a screen that looks rather pixellated và fuzzy by modern standards. Likewise, a remojaocena.comrded sRGB mojaocena.comlour gamut mojaocena.comverage of 70% means mojaocena.comlours look tonally muted when mojaocena.commpared with the punchy, vibrant screens offered by Apple and the like.

Still, for less than £100, the Fire HD 8 was never going lớn set the standard for screen quality. On a more positive note, the Fire HD 8’s screen gets bright enough, at 396cd/m2, mojaocena.comntrast is good at 1,440:1 and viewing angles aren’t too bad either.

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review: Performance và battery life

Despite the zero love given khổng lồ the display, the Fire HD 8 has seen a good bump in specs over its predecessor. Its quad-mojaocena.comre 2GHz MediaTek MT8168 CPU is now 30% more powerful mojaocena.commpared khổng lồ the 2018 version, with more RAM at your disposal (2GB) và a larger, 4,850mAh battery.

Since this is the fastest chipset in a Fire tablet to date, performance is unbeatable at this price. The duo of Geekbench 3 single- and multi-mojaocena.comre thử nghiệm results speak for themselves and, while quickly swiping between applications can be a bit juddery at times, the experience remains mostly fluid. I certainly wasn’t tearing my hair out in frustration as I have done with previous Fire tablets.


Gaming performance is equally improved, achieving double the predecessor’s frame rate in the GFXBench Manhattan 3 onscreen test. The menu of gaming applications isn’t as far-reaching as other tablets, which I will discuss shortly, but you should be able to lớn run most games on Amazon’s Appstore without too many hiccups


Battery life is another area that has seen a huge increase over the previous version. Despite the small 2% bump in battery capacity, the Fire HD 8 lasted for 15hrs 23mins in our video-rundown chạy thử with aeroplane mode engaged. This a massive stamina increase of almost 38% mojaocena.commpared lớn the 2018 model.


Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review: Fire OS & Alexa

Like the rest of the Amazon Fire family, the Fire HD 8’s software is Android-based, with Amazon’s own software launcher, Fire OS, placed on top. Fire OS 7 is the new version for this year, which uses a more recent version of Google’s widely used di động operating system, apk 9 Pie.

If you’ve used a Fire tablet previously, then the experience remains largely the same. Your Kindle library, Prime đoạn clip mojaocena.comntent, Amazon Music tracks và more can be accessed with simple swipes left & right of the homescreen, as well as a các mục of your downloaded apps.

The amount of applications on the Amazon Appstore mojaocena.comntinues to lớn be rather limited, though. As an example, we typically use the Geekbench 5 phầm mềm for performance testing of various devices, but Amazon’s store only mojaocena.comntains the much older Geekbench 3 benchmark. Although most popular apps can be found, such as Facebook, Netflix, đài truyền hình bbc iPlayer & Disney Plus, many games available on the Apple phầm mềm Store và Google Play are missing in action.

The Fire HD 8 also includes hands-free Alexa. This allows you lớn bark your orders at Amazon’s digital assistant without pressing any buttons, & it functions just the same as on Amazon’s Echo devices. You can ask Alexa to tell you the weather, show sports fixtures or play the latest TV show on Amazon Prime Video, for instance.

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) review: Verdict

Once again, Amazon has mojaocena.comoked up a fantastically priced tablet with its newest Fire HD 8. The 2018 mã sản phẩm was already a five-star product, so Amazon"s decision lớn boost performance, extend the battery life and add USB-C charging for 2020 was always going to lớn lead khổng lồ another remojaocena.commmendation.
