Good news: Ahead of Amazon Prime Day 2017, the 6th gen tablet price just became even more affordable with a models thanks to the arrival of the 7th generation tablet.
The Fire HD 8 tablet might not be the best tablet, but offers decent performance with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor capable of passable mobile gaming. Its screen isn’t the highest resolution, but Amazon apps use a special text smoothing to improve the experience.
One choice anyone buying an Amazon device is faced with is the decision to get one “with special offers” for a discounted price, or get one “without special offers” and pay extra.
The “special offers” are advertisements from Amazon that appear on the device's lock screen. A surprising aspect of the deal on Amazon’s Fire HD 8 tablet is that the discount price for the tablet with and without the special offers is the same.
The 16GB Fire HD 8 tablet is $69 and the 32GB model is $89, both $20 down from their list price lock screen advertisements. Currently only the 16GB model shows up as available without lock screen advertisements, and it’s also $69, which is $35 off its list price.
