Pros of Amazon Fire HD

An ideal size for a lot of tablet uses. The $80 price is outstanding. The battery lasts a long time. MicroSD card slot lets you add extra storage for cheap. Enjoy millions of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle eBooks, apps and games – including Amazon Video, Netflix, Facebook, Spotify, TuneIn, Instagram and more. Watch downloaded videos anywhere with a Prime membership or Netflix subscription – at no additional cost. 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).

Cons of Amazon Fire HD

Alexa is not hands-free, requiring a button press to use. The hardware is passable, but far from attractive or speedy. The screen is a museum for fingerprints. Content can look washed out at certain angles.
