Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020) Tablet Review: Updated Fire Tablet offers significantly more power
On the Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020), users will use the manufacturer’s own Fire OS, which is based on Android 9. The tablet comes with version 7.1.3 and, on the home screen, looks like a classic Android system. In addition, there are a number of tabs that grant access to various Amazon products. If the user’s Amazon account is linked to the tablet, these tabs allow users to view music, audio books, videos and more. In addition, with Amazon Alexa, audio can be reliably used as an alternative operation method.
Applications can be obtained from Amazon’s app store. Although the app store is quite extensive, it is still a far cry from the diversity of the Google Play Store. Installing the latter manually is now quite easy, and there are many uncomplicated instructions on the Internet.
Users who have opted for the cheaper option with “special offers” will see advertisements on the standby screen that are updated regularly. For a small surcharge, the Amazon tablet can also be bought directly without advertisements; these can also be removed for a fee using Amazon after the device has been purchased.
