If you miss something, just tap and hold the screen to activate the Brake.

Disappointing performance…despite good price, size, and features The Fire HD 8 seemed like a great deal to me considering the size, economical price point, and the ability to watch content offline. And it offered exactly that…but fell short on performance parameters. If you’re price sensitive and are looking for a value tablet, larger screen than the 6″ Fire, and the ability to watch content offline, this is a decent device to get. However, if you already have an earlier Kindle like the HDX 8.9 or even an earlier version of the Fire, I recommend keeping your tablet since this device wouldn’t really be a worthwhile upgrade. I have been disappointed with several operating shortcomings of the device. If you’re looking for a very basic tablet to watch videos or for your kids, the $49.99 Fire is a better option.QUICK SUMMARY:PROs – Price, dual stereo speakers, expandable memory slot (great for viewing content offline), full access to Amazon content. Good basic tablet specially for watching videos.CONs – Screen…

Great value tablet – read this for a non-technical review As a life-long Apple fan I’m surprised to find myself going to the dark side – writing a positive but balanced review of the Amazon Fire 8 inch Tablet compared to the bigger 10 inch model and the relatively expensive iPad Air 2.I’ve owned several iPad’s and tested and reviewed numerous inexpensive (sometimes “cheap and nasty”), 7 and 10 inch tablets, and was impressed by this. As I work in IT, I’m aware just how confusing technology can be, so I’ll try to avoid references to jargon, and focus instead on the experience.If you’re a techie who wants to compare the specifications, this is probably not the review for you.Quick Summary==========Although not as sharp iPad, at screen is clear, bright and colourful at almost any angle, and a pleasure to watch video or play games on. It is highly reflective, and pretty useless in bright sunlight, but so is just about every other tablet. It has a wide-screen aspect which is great…

Simply Put: Great Value, Great Tablet! Let me make things simple for everyone. This is a great tablet and a beautiful device. It has everything 97% of tablet users need and want. The 3% that are power users can pay up for an iPad.Amazon Prime is a must if you have one of these tablets. And if you already have Amazon Prime it is a no-brainer to buy this tablet if you are looking for an entertainment device that also gives you the ability to check email and surf the web as needed.People complain that one app here or there is missing. If you want the tried and true, the basics, then you have nothing to worry about. Of course there is a weather app. Of course there is a NYT app. All the ‘normal’ stuff is there. Sure, a particular game or more specialized app may not be available but anything most people actually ‘want/need’ is going to be there.This is not a device for the office. If you want to review spreadsheets then clearly do not buy it. That goes without saying.As…
