Dam! Got it to shop quicker than the 7" in started with. I dunno if I justify the Prime membership.....BUT...I get excellent prices in a sort of "shopping desert" in a 100K pop. US Midwest town.
I could play 2 viddies off the sd card back to back....g00d battery....pic fine on a plane seat tray or in a waiting room etc.

This is not that bad for the price. The size and weight are just right. The screen is fine, a one megapixel display is adequate for an 8 inch tablet. The processor is underpowered but with more RAM it wouldn't lag so much. It is easy to install the Google Play store and services that makes this a decent ultracheap tablet for reading eBooks and watching videos. The speakers are alright, as good as BoomSound speakers.

The screen on this scratches insanely easily. I have a keyboard/case for this and the keyboard is plastic. There is no way a plastic keyboard could scratch gorilla glass.
nistar, 30 Dec 2017It support android apps and playstorehttps://www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/
This tablet is quite laggy when play some 3D games. i want to remove bloatware apps but I can't because there is no way to root it. don't buy this tablet at this time.

Does Amazon fire HD 8 2017 have latest android features such as split screen, expandable notifications, permission controls etc?.
As per specs, their OS is based on Android 5.1.
I noticed that it has an option called Adaptive Brightness (which can be toggled manually). So conclusively it should have an ambient light sensor so you might need to add that to your spec (sensor ) section.
Just purchased the 32Gig one brilliant piece of kit for the money, yes it's no IPAD but I do love the SD Card option of 256 gig and I have side loaded Google Play, which is working brilliantly, battery life is amazing, great tablet for the price,
I upgraded from a 2015 Fire 7 to the 2017 fire 8, and although this is no iPad, I find it a pleasant, usable little inexpensive tablet. For web browsing and email, it's a great value. Much better screen than you typically get in sub $100 tablets, decent (not phenomenal) battery life. The 1.5GB ram vs. the previous version's 1GB makes a huge difference. For ~$50 it works good. Take it where you might not want to take your iPad or iPad Pro.
Compared to Nvidia Shield K1 (2015) which is still ahead of its time even today this tablet its a total waste of time and money. Come on its 2017 and they still put mediatek and Lolipop.
For 1,5x price of this tablet (buying without ads) you can get a new Shield K1...
Well at least this tablet is good if you don't have where to waste your time and you want challenges to install google services, google play or blocking ads by yourself and etc, this tablet would be perfect choice for you.
