Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition TabletIt is, truly, the era of information and technology and kids are growing up far from how we used to. They now have access to contents and application that sometimes lies in the darker area of the world.

How can we, as responsible parents, protect them from the plague spreading across looking to corrupt our little-beloved children?

And we know you realize by heart that forbidding them is not an option, as it will only set your kids behind and disturb their development process.

However, Amazon has shed some light on this problem when they launched Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition, a perfect Tablet for kids.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition TabletGetting to know his new best friend

Amazon creates Fire HD 8 Kids Edition with family at its heart. The Tablet comes with super durable rubber case at its simple, yet effective design along with 3 bright color choices – yellow, blue and pink.

The case provides a solid grip as well as a strong protection against any accident that it may encounter. Nonetheless, we all know the unexpected can always happen which is why Amazon offers a 2-year no quibble warranty, so you don’t have to worry even if they break the screen over their pirate role-play or spill their morning cereal on.

The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition’s user interface is also very straightforward and easy to use. You can navigate through its functions no different than walking in your own backyard.

Cameras are featured one each on the front and rear. The screen, as the name might suggest, is 1280 x 800 HD with Dolby speaker making it ideal considering its price.

Also, it is packed with 32GB built-in storage with a MicroSD card slot available if your family wants more space for contents. Alexa, the latest Amazon assistant is as well ready to help with anything your kids need through the voice command.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition TabletPlaying with the friend

Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is not a friend who would spoil your children with ten hours of game time a day. In fact, it will even help you monitor your kids through parents’ profile.

For kids’ profiles, you can restrict play time or set a condition like read for an hour before they can unlock their movies.

In case you have multiple kids at different ages, each profile can be assigned individually with conditions and age restrictions.

Running 1.5 GB memory, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition provides various family experiences without a lag. Though it may take a little while to load some big apps, it doesn’t take too long or poses a problem.

You will have wide ranges of applications and movies to choose from, the famous Minecraft or Harry Potter, for example.

Looking at the battery life, many users report incredibly positive feedbacks matching with the 12 hours claimed by Amazon. The cameras are decent and up for everyday tasks whether it’s a selfie or a funny family photo.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition TabletWhat we thought about the friend

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is definitely a perfect Fire Tablet for children and their family. Not only it provides play time within parents’ sights, but also the safety of the contents they gain access to.

With this edition, Amazon provides a 2-year warranty with no question ask which surely cannot be overlooked. Moreover, there is one more thing we didn’t mention earlier which is you also get a year of free Fire for Kids supplying your children with more books and videos.

This Tablet scales well into later years of your children and might as well end up being one of your entertainment sources.

We know it may feel like a big leap in term of the price compared to the normal Fire 8 HD or other Tablets at the same league, but judging from its benefits, nothing can rival the undying phrase, “it’s a small price to pay”.

Amazon is about to launch its new budget Tablet to fill the FIRE series and the price is surely on fire! The successor is packed with some interesting upgrades including the Alexa Hands-Free. For those who are not familiar with the series, worry not as we will walk this one through together.

First Glance

Taking a first look at its appearance, FIRE HD 10 comes with 3 color choices, Black, Marine Blue, and Punch Red. Although the design is not the best in the market, its simple look can serve every function and desire just right.

The screen is now full HD 10.1 inch with over 2 million pixels and its battery is claimed to last 2 hours more making the sum of 10 hours. The price also drops down a bit from its predecessor which is definitely a plus for our savings.

OS Observe

Similar to other Fire Tablets, FIRE HD 10 utilizes Fire OS to make it shine and it is doing pretty well. FIRE OS is an Android-based operating system developed by Amazon to use in its wide range of devices.

As a result, it carries a lot of nice Amazon-exclusive features such as Amazon FreeTime or BlueShade highlighting its multi purposes.

One of the most notable is “For You” an improved application launcher which monitors your recent activity as well as suggests what you might enjoy next.

Peeking Inside

Our fellows on the board are getting a boost too. The built-in storage comes with 32GB and 64GB models for you to choose. If it still sounds a little lackluster, a micro-SD slot supporting up to 256 GB is available to fill your missing gap.

The improved processor is 30% faster compared to the old version along with twice amount of memory at your disposal. With this performance, it should be able to get you anywhere you want to go in the digital world.

Meet Alexa

Though Alexa is not new, we still feel that the hands-free function deserves its own place in this article. As the name suggests, you can now say goodbye to button holding and operate your virtual assistant using only voice command.

The feature can be activated in a standby mode which will keep Alexa awake even though your screen is off. However, don’t expect something like asking for music when you are in another room, as the microphone is not designed for far range. Yet, it will work perfectly under reasonable conditions.

Final Look

So far, the FIRE HD 10 shows many impressive features which might even worth more than its price. Screen Sharing, a support service from Amazon, is another factor that should be taken into consideration in case you have any problem or question with the product.

If you are a prime membership, you can take advantage of the Tablets even further. The final verdict, however, cannot be passed until the All-New Fire HD 10 Tablet with Alexa Hands-Free is launched this October 11, 2017. Don’t forget to stay tuned for the update.
