This is a price that Amazon usually reserves for holidays, such as Black Friday, but for the next few hours the HD 8 will be sold at the same price as the entry-level Fire 7.

The Fire HD 8 features an 8-inch 1280 x 800 (189 ppi) resolution screen, 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable via microSD slot), and 0.3MP/2MP rear and front cameras.

The tablet has Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, which let it produce enough sound to fill a medium-sized room. The tablet's battery lasted 10 hours and 58 minutes in our battery test, which trumps the Fire 7's 6:53 time and beats the average tablet battery span of 8:58.

Alexa, Amazon's digital assistant, is also embedded into the tablet so you can play music, receive weather/news updates, or get answers to your questions via voice commands.

Simply put, the Fire HD 8 is the best tablet  you can find for under $100.
