This video is a review of the new $79 Fire HD 8 tablet that Amazon released for 2017:


Rich Brown says:

not sure what you mean when you say you can’t change the wallpaper anymore. I just did it on mine. You just go to settings, display, and the first option is wallpaper.

Ry Guy says:

Do you think you can stream to an hdtv like the older Fire’s did. All they did was connect the Fire with an Hdmi cable to the tv. Would really like to know if you can stream to a tv before purchasing one. Thanks

Rx says:

Got one for $50, immediately put Google Play store and Kodi on it, and I’m blown away. That new quad core and almost 2 gigs of ram have made this a surprisingly snappy tablet. 1080p media looks great down-scaled to 800p and the down firing Dolby stereo speakers make for a pleasant listening experience. I can even use it as a media center, casting Kodi movies in Full HD to my TV with zero stutter. Yes, a $50 tablet is actually that freaking powerful and has that many features.

Bruce W says:

I got one about a month ago. Installed Google Play and am very pleased with it. A great value and it is my main eBook reader now.

Frank Burns says:

Word Runner must be the most ridiculous thing ever. Not a natural way to read at all…imo…great tablet though.

Lets Do It says:

thats cool!!

How do you install Google Chrome on this device? I like the idea of the “unused folder”. Thanks. I am new to all this.

Eric Uyemura says:

i love this thing. ive got a nice pc, but i wanted something that i could just consume content on (youtube, netflix, twitch, audible,read, etc) and it does just that perfectly. couldn’t be happier with it especially since the price is really good. the only thing i was concerned with was the screen and i find it totally fine, i watch a ton of anime and it looks great on the kindle.

Brian Berkes says:

I bought one… sent it back as fast as I could… it has poor audio volume and screen is awful… coming from an IPad I guess I’m spoiled… went and bought the iPad 2017 model for 325.00… worth every penny…

Rori Rants says:

HOw’d you get the Google play store and Chrome on it? You can’t change the wallpaper?? That’s weird. My Fire 6 does. Hmm…Oops, never mind, I heard you have a tutorial on it. My bad.

Steve Worman says:

Had one of these last year and returned it after a few days. Been using a Samsung 10.1 inch tablet but the size is awkward for me. May try this new version again. 8 inch much better size for me.


The best review of the Kindle 8 7th gen. model. The guy knows his stuff. Good one.
