Fire 7 (2019) vs Fire HD 8 (2018)
When our old Fire died, my wife, Cara, wanted a new one. Being in the tech review business as we are, we got all three fire tablets. If you are trying to decide between the Fire 7 and the Fire HD 8, our following article may help. Our full reviews of each are found here: Fire 7 Review and Fire HD 8 Review
Let’s start with what they have in common.
Fire 7 vs Fire HD 8 Tablet
Now, let’s take a look at what makes them different other than costs.
Cara and I are currently using these two for our nighttime reading/media. Cara has the 8 and I the 7. In preparing for this review, I read a handful of others take on the 7, and it did not do well. These poor reviews initially tainted my view. After using it for some time, I like the little guy. It’s not nearly as terrible as some of the reviews out there.
Fire 7 vs Fire HD 8 – Conclusion
If quality video and audio are essential, there is a slight upgrade with the 8. Otherwise, I like the 7 and what it offers at the price point. Its good for people who may not watch a lot of videos, or don’t care a lot about video quality. It’s also a tad smaller if you have tiny hands like the president.
