- Weak cameras
- No official Google Play support
The Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus (2020) adds some nice quality-of-life bonuses to the Amazon Fire HD 8, bringing wireless charging, more RAM, and higher storage capacity to the budget-friendly market. The design and idea, however, are the same between both models.
Differences you’ll find include:
- Wireless charging
- A faster processor
- 3GB of RAM
- Fast charging option
Amazon sells a wireless charging dock for the Fire HD 8 Plus (2020) that essentially converts it into an Amazon Echo Show 8. Reviewers found it useful watching shows and movies or for using their tablet like a smart speaker to set timers, control home automation features, or play music.
There is an extra gigabyte of RAM in the tablet as well. This means smoother app transitions and snappier performance, but reviewers note the boost isn’t super obvious.
If you’re looking for a tablet with personality, the Fire HD 8 Plus (2020) is only available in one color: slate.
