The Amazon HD 8 came out in 2017 and compared to the version that came out in 2016 this model has slightly more RAM, better cameras and Dolby Audio. It retails for $89 and frequently goes on sales a few times a year. It is a solid investment if you are looking for a cheap tablet that is gateway to all things Amazon.
The Fire HD 8 has an eight inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 resolution at 189 ppi. Underneath the hood is a Quad-Core: 1.3 GHz , with 1.5 GB of RAM and two options of storage; 16GB or 32GB. There is a SD card support for up to 256GB and a 3.5mm headphone jack and Dolby Audio.
