Fast and responsive

Enjoy your entertainment with a fast 1.3 GHz quad-core processor. Fire HD 8 offers 50% more RAM than Fire 7 for faster performance.

Vibrant HD display

Fire HD 8 features a 1280 x 800 high-definition display with over a million pixels (189 ppi) and a bright, vivid picture. Enjoy movies and games in a crisp, clear HD resolution, with less glare and more brightness thanks to a stunning IPS (in-plane-switching) LCD display.

No more worrying about storage space

With 2X more internal storage than Fire 7, Fire HD 8 comes standard with 16 GB. Expand your tablet’s storage by up to 256 GB using a microSD card, and keep photos, movies, and compatible games and apps with you. Plus enjoy free unlimited cloud storage for all your Amazon content and photos taken with your Fire tablet.

Power when you need it

Now with up to 12 hours of mixed-use battery life, Fire HD 8 gives you the flexibility to go where the day takes you.

Capture life's moments

Fire HD 8 features a 2 MP rear-facing camera for taking photos or shooting 720p video. The front-facing VGA camera is perfect for Skype calls with friends and family.

Stands up to everyday life

Amazon engineers Fire tablets to hold up against everyday life. As measured in tumble tests, Fire HD 8 is more durable than the latest iPad and 2x more durable than iPad mini 4 (and costs a lot less too).

bestbuy logo Good for certain situations
I bought this tablet originally because of its price. You get what you pay for. Overall, I thought it was a wonderful tablet but it didn’t fit my needs. I ended up returning it because I didn’t like the android software. This tablet is wonderful for children and the elderly, but for a previous iPad owner, I decided to buy an iPad and pay more instead.

bestbuy logo Definitely a good buy.
I have had a pretty good time with this Kindle. The price is great, the size is great, and it has performed well. It could be a little lighter, but I understand the weight, due to it doubling as a tablet. So far, I have played some games and read some books and manga, and have had no issues. I love the panel view feature for manga! It really lets you see and appreciate the detail. I do wish that Amazon supported Google Play and affiliates like YouTube, but I have learned to live with it as-is.

bestbuy logo Good tablet for a kid
I bought it for my son for Christmas. I love it. It's much bigger and sturdier than the other Kindle Fires. The font is bigger and much easier to read. It also holds a charge well.

bestbuy logo Traveler’s Library
We purchased for our book-loving son, so he could take a library with him to his job overseas. It is a great solution for anyone who wants to take their books with them on the road.

It’s the perfect size and weight. I have had iPads in the past but decided to try this and will not go back to iPads. It does all I need.
