Best Amazon Prime Day Fire Tablet Deals

Amazon's Fire tablets are great — and a helluva lot cheaper than many Android rivals (not to mention iPads). And, on Prime Day 2019, you can get all of Amazon's Fire tablets even cheaper. We know, it seems crazy, but Amazon will let you have some of the Fire tablets for almost half price.

If you're new to Fire tablets, you'll be pleased to hear that while they run a variation of the Android operating system, you'll find all apps you're used to with other Android tablets or iPads.

There's still an Amazon sheen to it all – you'll find plenty of pushes towards Prime TV or Kindle book downloads.

You can also get some Fire tablets with ‘Special Offers,' which are even cheaper than standard. But, you have to put up with some full-screen Amazon adverts on your lock screen in return.

Amazon also makes a great range of kid-specific tablets called, imagintavely, the Fire Tablet Kids Edition. They're still great value though, given that they're basically the same as the regular Fire tablets, but with some kid-proof features:

Kids Edition

  • Slightly pricier
  • Parental controls built-in
  • Shock-absorbing design for accidental drops
  • Range of bright colors

Amazon's Fire tablets may be cheap to begin with, but the Prime Day discounts make them truly head-turning. Better yet? They're pretty respectable tablets, too.

Our pick of the bunch would be the Fire HD 8. While the 7-inch model is an unbelievable deal at just $29, it's worth spending that little bit more for the better quality screen and speakers you'll get with the Fire HD 8.

Fire 7 with Alexa

  • $29.99 — $20 off
  • At this price, the Fire 7 with Alexa is the ultimate bargain tablet — it won't beat an iPad, but you cannot get better for less.
  • It has a 1024×600 7″ LCD display and uses Amazon's FireOS version of Android, so it should feel familiar to most people
  • It also features Alexa, and has up to 256GB expandable storage

Amazon Fire HD 8 with Alexa

  • Arguably Amazon's best tablet, the HD8 gets improved specs all-round with only a modest price increase
  • Sharper 1280×800 resolution screen, more Ram and storage and up to 10 hours of battery life
  • Alexa is available all the time

Amazon Fire HD 10 with Alexa

  • $99.99 — $50 off
  • The Fire HD 10 is Amazon's most expensive and highly-specced tablet with a 10″ 1920×1200 display, 2GB Ram and an upgraded processor
  • The Show Mode Charging Dock also turns the Fire HD 10 into, effectively, an Echo Show, giving you two devices for the price of one. You can read more about how it works here.

Best Amazon Kids Tablet Deals

Looking to buy a tablet for your kids? The deals have already begun, with Amazon cutting the prices on its ‘Kids Edition' Fire tablet range. There are three models to choose from:

Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet – the most basic model, with a non-HD screen. It's the cheapest of the range, but worth being aware the non-kids edition (above) is even cheaper at just $29.

Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet – probably the best inbetween model to go for. Though not as large as the 10-inch tablet, the screen is good quality and the price is much lower. Again, the regular non-kids version is cheaper, still.

Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet – you'll see a pattern emerging here. While the Kids Edition 10-inch tablet is cheap, it'll be even cheaper to snap up the non-kids version. Even so, the 10-inch Kids Edition is a great tablet, with a good screen size and simple parental controls.
