Fire HD 8 Plus: Initial impressions

I've started using Amazon's recently released Fire HD 8 Plus. The Fire HD 8 Plus is near identical to the regular Fire HD 8 but with an extra GB of RAM and support for wireless charging. Due to the support for wireless charging, Amazon also released, in collaboration with ANGREAT, a fast-charging dock that activates Alexa show mode.

My initial impressions of the tablet are more negative than positive. The main problem is the very reflective screen that affects viewing even indoors. In my view, an anti-reflective screen protector is a must for the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 8 Plus. The positives are better performance and the extra RAM that makes switching between apps smoother.

In a future post, I'll write-up a short review and compare the Fire HD 8 Plus to other budget Android tablets.
