Reviews for the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition 2017

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition (2017) review:

The kid-friendly version of the excellent Amazon Fire HD 8 costs a lot more, but offers a big package of worthwhile extras for preteens.

If you're looking for an entertainment and educational tablet for your child, the Amazon Fire HD 8 for Kids is the best choice. The cost isn't outrageous, and you save even more with FreeTime Unlimited. The two-year Worry-Free warranty has the potential to save you a lot of money in repair or replacement costs. And, because the protective case is removable, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition doesn't have to look like, or function only as, a kids' device.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
