Editor Rating

The Amazon Fire HD 8 2020 model is one of the most affordable tablets sold by the brand, which easily comes under the 100-dollar price point, making it cheaper than even a lot of entry-level smartphones from other competitors. They do cut a lot of corners in order to achieve this price, though, so you will get a very basic design and build quality, which is highlighted by an average display with large chunky bezels and a basic plastic rear panel with no special paint finish available. The kid’s version does get more padding to prevent it from getting damaged, but that is the extent of the modifications.


Bottom Line

Amazon Fire HD 8 2020 model is a very basic and cheap tablet meant for basic everyday use, and this fact is reflected in all aspects of the device, from the design to the performance and even the software.
