As a background, I am a retired Information Systems professional and I am writing my first impressions of the NEW Fire HD 8 released on September 21, 2016 from the perspective of being a long-term Kindle user. I have all the current e-readers and Fire devices from Amazon including the basic Kindle, the Paperwhite (2013,2014,2015 models), the Fire HD6, Fire HD7, Fire HDX7 and Fire HDX8.9 (3rd and 4th generation), the old Fire HD 8 and the Fire HD 10. Here is a summary of my initial impressions of the new Fire HD8.
Amazon did it right this time, really enjoying my tablet! (4 updates) — 4th update has some tips
4,236 people found this helpful.
I am thrilled with the new Fire HD8 – even before it gets Alexa! At that time I will likely be ecstatic! I am far from a tablet novice – I had the original fire; the $50 fire; the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3; and the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. My phones have always been Samsung flagship phones, currently the S7 Edge. I say this to show that I 1) have experience with kindle fires, and 2) generally tend to have high standards for my most used devices — I KNOW what is a good tablet and what is a so-so tablet. Admittedly, my previous fires have been “so-so”, but I wanted something inexpensive yet adequate to take places with me instead of my Galaxy Tab S 10.5.
A great upgrade from the fire 7. A great buy at this price!

Fire HD 8>>>>>>>>>>>>Fire 7

Although it’s a little more money, the HD 8 is a no-brainer. The fire 7 is so slow and the resolution is painful. The HD 8, however, is SO much snappier that I can use it daily and am not getting frustrated with its performance! It’s awesome! The resolution is much better too. I also followed a YouTube video on how to install the Google play app store so now it has any app I could want or need.
Third time’s the charm? Does what it is designed for well.

This is my third fire tablet. The first was a 2012 Kindle Fire HD, the second a 2014 Fire HD 7. While I liked the 2012 model, it was heavy and slow. The Fire HD 7 was a less than stellar device. Also slow, riddled with bugs, frustrating, and eventually returned. I am an Apple fan and have virtually every Apple product: from a MacBook Pro to an iPad Air 2 to an iPhone 7 Plus to AirPods, just as a reference for where I am coming from. I also have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet AT&T offered to me for free which I rarely use. While my Air 2 is my daily driver, I like having other tablets I can throw into my work bag and not worry if it gets beat up or lost.
Not a "Great Deal for the Price," Just a Great Deal

Why I bought it:
Great Value for $119
40 people found this helpful.
I’m writing this review with the benefit of being an experienced Kindle Fire user vs. someone brand new to the Kindle family. In summary, for $119 you are getting a very good deal on a tablet computer – especially if you compare it to the $500 or more you can spend on other tablet versions. Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding and you can really tell a difference between this and last year’s Fire, as that seems to be the case with each new generation of the Fire tablet.
Basic, Functions Well, Fantastic Value

I bought two HD 8’s, one 32G, one 16G. I own HDX 7, HDX 9, a HD 10 and an older HD 7 as well as an Oasis and current generation Paperwhite. I know Kindle products pretty well.
