The Fire HD 8 tablet is a great replacement for a standard Kindle. Not only does it have 12 hours of battery life, but the full-color display is excellent for watching content or browsing the web. It can even have up to 1TB of storage through the use of an SD card.
"Really love this tablet. I use it mostly as a Kindle and I love it way more than the actual Kindle! I bought the extra memory SD card so I can store a ton of books. It’s great while traveling! Battery life is good. On weekends if I read all day the battery lasts. I’d say about 16 hours," said one of more than 128,000 five-star reviewers.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab A8 is a great choice for anyone who loves the Samsung ecosystem. The Galaxy Tab A8 has a 5MP camera on the front for making video calls, and up to 32GB of internal storage for everything from games to images. Need something to binge Netflix in bed? This is the tablet for you.
One user said, "This works as I expected, just great! Perfect size for my needs. I replaced an old tablet of another brand that gave me fits with poor performance from day one. Since I've had Samsung Galaxy cell phones for years and never had any issues, I figured this would be just the ticket. I'm highly pleased and definitely recommend it!"
$200 and higher
This is the quintessential entry-level model of iPad, but it's capable of so much. You can play the full range of Apple Arcade games, watch your favorite streaming services, or even get some work done (especially if you pair it with an Apple Pencil).
"It's a great product for work and has so many helpful features. Easy to setup and use," said one parent. "My son is in the 6th grade and needed the upgrade from Gen 8, for school work items he's working on in his school clubs."
