First of all, this isn’t an iPad, not even in competition with one so don’t compare it to that. I view the fire tablet line to be solely for media consumption in which they excel at. They’re a great starter tablet for younger kids and teens because of the price and durability.

Packaging was simple with minimal plastic. Setup took a few seconds with an available amazon account.

The tablet itself is light and portable. The screen looks good and the sound comes out fine although not as loud as I would like. The volume is better when using headphones. Bluetooth pairing is also really quick and reliable.

I use this tablet mainly for reading kindle books and magazines and browsing the amazon app. I also watch Netflix and Hulu and YouTube with ease.

I couldn’t care less about google play store because I was able to download all the apps I frequently use on the device for free. I do know that you can add google play store if you so desired so there’s no problem there.

I don’t use the tablet to game so I can’t speak on that aspect but overall, as a budget tablet I like using the fire hd 8 a lot when I need to go out and don’t want to lug around my heavier and more expensive iPad.

I don’t care for the camera on this tablet but it’s not bad in its own right. The camera on this tablet is mediocre but gets the job done and your expectations for it shouldn’t be that high to begin with in all honesty. A better camera will drive up the price and just how often do you actually use it should be a question you genuinely ask yourself before you start docking stars for the camera.

This is a great little device for media consumption if you want a bigger screen to work with than your regular-degular smart phone. HIGHLY recommend for media consumption and kindle reading. Super affordable, comfortable to hold thanks to the larger uniform bezels and portable for on the go usage. Battery life is also great considering the brightness levels I keep it at and charged via USB TYPE C which is a bonus.
