    • Just an fyi in case others don't know, but you can often get these for ~$50 from staples (frequently on sale for $75, and combine with $25 off $75 coupon)

      Don't know what you consider to be often...but $25 off coupon coinciding with the Fire tablet sale happened literally twice. Given the last fiasco with the $25 coupon, who knows when that will come back into the wild.

    • Amazon themselves have sold it for as little as $50 for the 16 Gbyte model as recently as November (https://forums.redflagdeals.com/staples ... y-2331348/). I bought one for $60 during Amazon Prime Days. So $80 may be a small discount from regular price, but unless you need one right away it would be better to hold off a little and wait for a better sale.

      As a tablet it's ok for the money. Physically a bit clunkier than sleek high-end tablets, but not by a huge amount. Low-end performance, but quite adequate for most purposes. Screen is fine. It has stereo speakers, but a bit weak in volume. WiFi is ok.

      Two issues to be aware of:

      1. FireOS is not Android. It's based on Android (7.1 on the Fire HD 8), and you can install the Google Play Store and a few missing components to run most Android apps, but there are still limitations. Some apps won't run or are specially crippled on FireOS tablets (e.g., Netflix can't cast to Chromecast). Notifications don't work for apps installed from the Google Play Store. Things like that.

      2. These tablets have the great extra feature that you can put it in Show Mode and run hands-free Alexa, where it duplicates a more expensive Echo Show 8. In the U.S., that is - Amazon disables this feature in Canada for no apparent reason. You can re-enable it to work with an Amazon.com U.S. account, but then you can't use any features tied to your Amazon.ca account.

      The resolution is shitty but the screen is really bright, I have no trouble using it outdoors.

    • Fyi, for whomever it is important, there's no 802.11ac wifi support on this tablet.

      kids have that for thier 8" as well...while it offers great protection, the kickstand rarely gets used as they never use the tablet on a tabletop or counter. But the biggest drawback for them is the weight. It's on the heavy side and gets tiring to hold for the little ones for extended periods...but that's kind of a blessing in disguise sometimes.

      Yeah, definitely not a very lightweight tablets. Ive only had ours for a few days, but i bought specifically for flights we're about to take, so Im thinking we'll use the stand for that. With the weight being a bit heavy it will hopefully keep them off of it for long periods of time.

      Excellent writeup. Summarizes my views on the Fire tablets nicely. Although afaik my play store app notifications seem to work? Might be a service you have to install? Been a long time since I put the play store on my Fire.

    • I am waiting for another 50.00 sale or for Amazon to open up Bezo's piggy bank and release this with 2 GB of ram and higher resolution screen. Then have it on sale at these prices..... With what Amazon "saves" by not allowing Prime members to have family members use their Prime Video, Music, Book accounts, and a few other voice features in Canada, like they can in the US and other countries. They should finally do some "decent" upgrades on the specs of this tablet for us LOL.

      That being said I have the Fire HD 10 that I paid 124.xx all in for it during a sale last year. I am quite happy with it for casual surfing, social media, ignoring my emails, but especially for watching d/l content.

      Where the Fire HD line of tablets really shines, IMO though is if you have elderly parents in care or with mobility issues and who have friends and family that can no longer travel easily to visit one another. With any of the Fire tablets in minutes you can set your parent(s) up and teach them to use these tablets for video chats to keep in touch. All at a price that doesn't break the bank and if the tablet gets lost or damaged another sale is usually only a few weeks away it seems.

      I got this one....
      https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0711T47NW/?th=1

      This Moko flip case does Auto On/Off when you open/close the cover. It has an integrated hand strap also.

      The trick for this one is to click on each of the patterns and colours available. The prices will sometimes change depending on the exact model. When I bought mine, all of them were roughly $21. But the Birds in the trees was $16. (Not available at the moment)

      This trick works with other suppliers as well.

      The problem seems to be partly that Google has made a lot of changes in the way that notifications work internally from one version of Android to the next, and FireOS throws in some more variations. I have a couple of apps where I depended on notifications from them (e.g., my HomeMate app that monitors sensors), and the notifications didn't work on the Fire HD 8. Googling the problem, I found many other people with the same issue with various apps, and the end conclusion of those threads was that it's unfortunately an inherent incompatibility with FireOS. The app itself works, just not the notifications.

      Translated, overpriced with lousy performance.

      Im looking to set up my senior mom with some kind of video chat capability as well. What app did you use for yours?

      No, at $50-$60 for the base model it's a good value for money if it does what you want it to do.
