3 Best Amazon Fire HD 8 Cases (2016, 6th Generation)

Amazon Fire HD 8 is the 2016 8-inch tablet from Amazon. Yes, Amazon Fire HD 8 (2016) is thicker than its predecessor. What’s more, the position of the headphone jack is different. It makes it impossible to cross-use shell cases. There is still a chance to utilize the old cover that uses elastic corner straps to hold the device in place. However, you may find it difficult to put the 2016 model inside. Remember, it’s thicker, not thinner, than the 2015 Fire.

Butterfly Flip Cover Case for Fire HD 8 (6th Generation, 2016)

It is thin and does not add too much thickness to the HD 8. It has a soft plastic feel that provides great grip. Provides 3 usable viewing angles, 1 good typing angle and the triangular base also serves as a handle to hold the tablet.

If you are thinking of getting a black HD 8 and a black cover, rethink the tablet color. The only parts visible are button/headphone/charging edge and small cut outs for speakers. This cover in black effectively makes your Kindle black. It would be nice to have a splash of color.

The only questionable construction note is the cover/handle moves independently of the tablet. The movement is not enough to expose the usable screen. Not a deal breaker, just an observation

Great unit at such a phenomenal price. My first one lasted over (3) years with daily usage and it still works fine but there was wee bit of separation of materials along 2″ of one of the edges which is completely understandable after that much use i.e.thousands of times. I could have used my old one for another 1-2,000 times but at these prices just thought it a treat to upgrade. I look forward to new designs coming out (hopefully periodically) because at these prices one can enjoy a new look even though structurally it will still be functioning just fine and look like new.

Would highly recommend this cover.

Shockproof Case for Amazon Fire HD 8 (6th Generation, 2016)

Shockproof Case for Amazon Fire HD 8

I just got this item yesterday and put my Kindle in it today. So far I like it. It does not have a closable cover, the only thing I find that I really like about the other cover I had. It does have a protective screen, which is why I wanted to try this one. It’s hard to put on and does not come with any instructions so at first you might worry you’ll break it trying to open it to put the Kindle inside. I’ll update my review after I’ve used it for a bit and read my Kindle while using it. But so far I’m enjoying it. I do think it’s perfect if kids will be using your Kindle. I would recommend it for Kid used kindles that will also be used by adults.

So far so good. One of the things that worried me about the new fire hd8 is the fact that it is so thin and slippery. With this case on it takes care of the thinness and also adds grip. Putting on the case was not hard at all, but I am familiar with installing full cases on other tablets. The front is a hard plastic that has a screen protector attached to it. This goes over the front of the tablet and hugs the sides of it. Around the back and over the sides goes the softer plastic rear cover. This cover is hard and not flimsy at all. After I put it on I felt much more at ease giving the tablet to my 4 and 3 year old without worrying that they might break it. The kick stand is also a nice addition and adds a movie or typing mode to the tablet. Over all I am very well satisfied with this cover. Also, I would like to add that I did NOT get this product for free. I purchased it with my own funds. When doing research for a case for my tablet one of the reasons why I decided on this one is because it adds corner protection, is not ugly and is affordable. There were some very nice looking flip cases where you slid the tablet in and it closes like a book, but none of those adds corner protection.

Leather Standing Case for Fire HD 8 (6th Generation, 2016)

4e6ea88f4f375b8cf325b4e38ca4f75e-image-220x264When I first got my Kindle Fire HD 8, I knew I would need a case for it but just could not see myself paying over a third of what the Kindle cost me just for the Amazon case. So I looked for an alternative. After reading reviews until I was cross-eyed, I settled on the TAGreat.

The case arrived in a nice package which was shipped in a padded envelope. I opted for the black case. The description does not say what it is made of but for $16 I doubt it is real leather however it does have the look and feel of leather. It seems substantial enough to provide good protection but is still slim enough that it does not feel bulky even in a bag, briefcase or backpack.

It took a minute to figure out how the Kindle went into it as there were no instructions but once I got it figured out, it fit perfectly. The flap on the left side folds under and is secured by velcro. You have to flip this out, slide the Kindle in and re-fold it back. Once in place, the Kindle is held securely in place. All the buttons, earphone jack and the micro SD card expansion port are easily accessible. The cut-outs for the two speakers are precisely in line with the Kindle so the sound is not affected. The size and built in strap makes it easy to hold. Once the cover is folded back to form the stand, the Kindle easily remains upright. The case does not interfere with my ability to type no matter if I am just doing web searches or creating text documents. When the case is closed the Kindle goes into hibernate mode and promptly comes out of it when opened.

This is functional case which performs as designed and good value for the price.

Best Quick Charge 3.0 USB Type C Car Charger

CELERITY Quick Charge 3.0 Dual USB Type C Car ChargerThis is an excellent, fairly small Quick Charge 3.0 car charger. (It actually fit in a 12V charge port inside a console with a cover where another similar product from another manufacturer did not.) It seems to operate perfectly, and quick charged my new HTC 10 just fine. It has the Quick Charge 3.0 charge port, as well as an additional port that can charge at up to 2.4 amps.

The only minor quibble I have with this charger is the light on it, which is on at all times. I prefer to leave the charger plugged in constantly, so this light is a little annoying, and also at least a small waste of power. (Yes, I realize the power wasted is probably trivial.) This was not an important enough negative, though, for me to deduct a star from my rating.

I also want to make sure, in writing this review, that people reading it understand what Quick Charge 3.0 is and isn’t. Because from reading some of the other reviews, it is pretty clear that there are a lot of misconceptions.

Only a very few devices out there right now take advantage of the Quick Charge 3.0 standard. You can find a list of them, as of May 24, on Qualcomm’s site.

There are ten devices on that list. (More devices are being added to the list all the time, of course. For example, my phone–the HTC 10, which is a Quick Charge 3.0 device–was not on the last list, which was dated in early April, as the list came out before the HTC 10 did.)

That list from Qualcomm also shows which devices can take advantage of Quick Charge 2.0, a standard this charger can also provide. There are a lot more of those devices on the list. (I counted seventy-five.)

Here’s the point: every one of those Quick Charge devices is an Android smart phone or tablet. Apple devices are not Quick Charge devices! That’s not to say this charger won’t do a great job of charging your Apple devices. It certainly will. It just isn’t going to charge them any faster than any other charger capable of supplying 2.4 Amps (for Apple devices that can accept 2.4 Amps – some can’t accept that much.)

If you’ve been using a 1.0 Amp charger to charge your iPhone 6s or your iPad, and you switch to this charger, then sure, your phone or iPad will charge much faster than it used to charge. But that has nothing to do with the Quick Charge technology, and everything to do with the increased amps this charger is providing your phone.

I apologize if you are one of the people reading this review thinking, “Yeah, I already knew this stuff”, but I really felt the need to explain it, because from reading other reviews it is very clear there is a lot of confusion about this. I certainly want people to purchase this car charger if it is the right car charger for them, and if they are buying it for the right reasons. I just don’t want to see someone who is already charging their Apple devices with a 2.4 Amp charger buying this one because of the Quick Charge 3.0 in the description, thinking it is going to charge their Apple devices faster, because it just isn’t going to do that.

CELERITY Quick Charge 3.0 Dual USB Type C Car ChargerI received this car charger at a discount, in exchange for my unbiased review.

I hope you found this review helpful. On the other hand, if you did not find this review helpful, I’d be interested in hearing why, so that I can attempt to edit it and make it more helpful to both you and others. If you leave a comment on the review, suggesting how it would be more helpful, I promise to respond to your comment, and to attempt to incorporate your suggestion in my review, if it is at all possible for me to do so. My goal is to write reviews that help people, as I have been helped by the reviews others have written.

  • Slim design easily and securely attaches to your Kindle
  • Magnetic clasp ensures cover is securely closed
  • Cover folds back for easy one-handed reading

  • Durable Polyurethane exterior protects your Kindle from scratches

It’s a nice cover. Pretty sturdy, not too heavy, well-made and does what you’d think a cover would do: cover your Kindle and somewhat protect it from wear and tear. However, I was quite shocked when I got my cover. I was sure Amazon had sent me the wrong colored cover! The picture shown on the product page makes the ‘Magenta’ cover seem like it’s pink. However, this thing is purple. It’s not even a pinkish purple, just a purple purple. Is this a deal breaker for me? No. Am I not going to use it? No. Am I being over-dramatic about the color of my Kindle Cover? Probably. But is this an issue? Yes, as it’s quite misleading. I have attached some pictures I’ve taken in natural lighting to help you get a better idea of the actual color.

I love pink and was excited to get a Cartoon Girl kindle cover. What I got instead was a purple one. Beware. If you don’t like purple, you’re not going to like the Magenta cover. I’m not a big fan of the color purple (loved the book though) and would have just gotten a black or blue cover instead if I had known what this really looked like.

Easily attach or remove Origami from your Kindle Voyage with a magnetic connection.

It’s a nice origami case. I’ve been enjoying it for about two weeks now. Definitely a very good alternative to the Amazon’s original Origami cover. It stands pretty steady in both, vertical or horizontal positions, and has a nice leather feel and look. It feels very nice to the touch, leathery on the outside, and sheer and soft on the inside. The magnetic closure puts the screen to sleep when you close it without having to press the on/off button in the back.

The only reason why I put 4 starts instead of 5 is because the color is not what it looks like on the picture. I purchased my case in Brown, on the picture it looks more pinkish. When I was buying it I thought the color of the case is something like “red”, or “green” judging by the picture. But it reality is yellow gold, even more so just black. Now, I don’t mind this red, it’s still very nice. It’s just that I was expecting something else. And it’s weird that it looks like one color in the picture, and then you get a completely different color. I would suggest them to either change the picture for Black color case, or change the name of the color, because it’s very misleading. I wonder if any other people actually got it in that red that is shown in the picture.

Also, I know it’s not about the product itself, but I think I’m still going to put it in. The case came in a cardboard package with no instruction sheet or any kind of note whatsoever, it didn’t have a label and because of that my first impression was that “Oh no, I actually got a very cheap product, maybe I should have paid more and get a better one”. But the product turned out to be good.

Other than that, it’s a great product for the price, nice quality, very nice leathery feel and look, perfect angle for table reading, not to low, not to high. Even though I was surprised by the color I still love the product and I would say that it is just as good as the original Amazon’s origami cover. What I love the most about it is that it flips sideways like a normal book, not upwards like the original, and still has the unique origami design.

Amazon Fire 7″ Tablet Review

Amazon Fire - 7" - TabletI ordered this for my wife mostly to use as a Kindle E-reader as I figured the tablet would be slow and the display would be less than impressive. I was wrong. What a bargain this little beauty is! This model cost $49.00 but it comes with ad’s displayed on the lock screen when your tablet is dormant. Once your screen times out, they disappear. You can pay $15.00 up front to get an ad free version so I assumed to unlock the tablet I’d have to spend 15 to 30 seconds looking at an ad for Amazon Prime, or a product from the daily specials section of Amazon.com I abstained from paying for Ad removal and was pleasantly surprised to find that the ads are only on the lock screen and that as soon as I unlock the tablet they disappear immediately.

Here are my pros and cons thus far.

PRO:

Perfect size for Ebooks, and web surfing to alleviate strain on the eyes from my 5″ phone display

nice sturdy casing that gives it a nice heft but still weighs in as one of the lighter tablets on the market

Child Accounts- Amazon allows you to set up this tablet with age restricted access for kids making this a low cost piece of tech that is perfect for school kids and allows mom and dad to ration the amount of time lil Johnny can play Clash of Clans and how much he can hit the ol’ Visa card for.

Battery life thus far; wife was on it for about 5 hours last night and battery was at about 46%

Kindle Integration -this goes without saying but having my ebooks and audible books synced to the tablet is awesome and my Kindle books look great

Price – it’s a $50.00 tablet that looks and performs as well as ipad mini gen1

CON:

Screen resolution – if you’re looking for a premium screen res on par with your latest smart phone or HD tablet look elsewhere. I’d say the resolution is on par with an Iphone 3G or the original Kindle Fire gen 1

Web browser

The built in “Silk” web browser isn’t very nice and the interface is reminiscent of IE on mobile devices. I searched the APP store for Google Chrome or fire fox but apparently those aren’t available.

Camera

This has a camera in the strictest sense but it’s 2MP camera is slow to load and it’s nowhere near on par with the 10MP most mobile devices are boasting these days

The weak ass speaker

OK. So I wasn’t expecting a Bose sound out of this thing but the on board speaker is just not very good. Poor sound quality, and weak. My wife was attempting to listen to our Amazon Music library the other night and was underwhelmed with the quality. I haven’t attempted this yet, but I’ll be paring this to our SONOS bar or my Bluetooth headphones for music or ebooks.

SO there you have it. Despite some of the flaws in the design this is just a fantastic deal for $50.00. SO much so that I ordered a second one for myself and plan on purchasing a 6 pack as Holiday Presents next month for my nieces and nephews. If you are new to tech and want to familiarize yourself without spending a heft sum to get into the game, or if you’re looking for a durable yet inexpensive piece of tech for your kids, or if you LOVE e-books then this is the unit for you.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Hands on Review 2016

Kindle PaperwhiteLets start for what this is all about. Its an ereader, eink has been around for awhile now. I’ve had one other ereader and it was a sony 6″ as well. Honestly at this point I don’t fully understand why the screens haven’t gotten a bit bigger. While easily readable on a 6″ screen, it would be nice to have something more ‘book like’ in size. In comparison my phone is a 5.5″ screen. So this is slightly bigger then the average modern smartphone. I also bought mine at Best Buy – same price and got it the same day.

What I like about this reader;

1.Back light, easy readable in all lighting conditions.

2. Eink, it really hasn’t gotten any better from older models to new models, 300ppi is nice but really I don’t think its something you’ll really care about or notice on plain text, graphics are another story. But really who would use this on a graphic novel?

3. Your own email to send ebooks to, its one of those nice things that is convenient. Send your book via email without having to mess with cords and such, from anywhere. I like that.

4. Dictionary. I am well read, but sometimes you come across a word that is just, unknown. The built in dictionary is handy in that regard.

5. Battery, it charges fast and so far holds it for a long time. Out of the box it had over half battery and I didn’t have to charge it for 2 weeks, even with heavy back light use.

What I don’t like. And I’ll start with what really prompted this review and why I am giving it a 3 star review.

1. The high jacking of you’re device and being held hostage with ads. Sure, you can remove them but you’ll pay amazon $20 to do it. Last I checked, I owned this thing and paid for it. Now, for awhile I didn’t really care about the ads, they were about books or some electronic device (battery banks and such). But what took the cake was the ad for Hefty trash bags – Hefty. Trash. Bags. My device is my device – not some ad platform that should be held hostage with a paywall to remove ads from a device I OWN. Now, I’ll be paying the ransom to remove the ads from my device because I really don’t want to see ads for trash bags ever again. Its honestly a desperate act by amazon to spam me with ads, and really it should not be like that. And no amazon, its not a deal to say its $99 with ‘special offers’ if those special offers are a means to thrust ads into my face every time I turn on my device. Because nothing puts you into the mood to read your favorite book then ‘Hefty trash bags’, yea no thanks. I’ve attached an image of the festive bags for reference.

2. Touch screen. Why is everything touchscreen? Sometimes my hand gets near the screen and I turn the page or go back inadvertently, the simple page buttons would be ever so nice. Granted you’d complicate the dictionary side of this, but honestly its a thing that can be overlooked.

3. The paper white really isn’t paper white. Its still grayish white and it bugs me that the ads/pictures for this clearly are making it look ‘whiter’ to other older models. It simply is not and looks like typical eink tech – the back light is what makes the screen ‘pop’ in my humble opinion.

4. Some of my ebooks required converting so that the kindle could open it. Not a problem, just get Calibre and convert to supported format – granted its one more step if you have your own ebook collection aside from your amazon ebooks.

Conclusion: Its a solid device with excellent battery and the back light is great, pay the extra to remove the ads and forgo the festive-santa-hat-wearing-trashbags. Because eventually your bound to get an ad on yours that makes you say ‘really, amazon?’.

Best Cases for Kindle Voyage

Best Case for Kindle Voyage
Best Cases for Kindle Voyage

I recently bought myself a Kindle Voyage. I had a very old Kindle that I actually got used from one of my husband’s partners at work. I loved that thing, but I literally loved it to death! I did a lot of research on a new Kindle (it is amazing how many versions of the Kindle are available now) and I opted for the Voyage. When it arrived, I fell in love. I have been using and taking it with me everywhere. I needed a case that I could get to protect my new reading companion. I kept sliding it into my handbag and I was worried that it would get scratched from doing this so often. I looked around a while and when I saw this leopard case, I fell in love. These cases had good reviews so I thought that it would work out well for me. I placed the order and this was shipped to me quickly. I had no trouble popping my Kindle right into the case. It fits snug and this opens and closes easily. This is light and does not weigh down my Kindle. It is comfortable to hold and it does not impact my reading. This case is great quality and I feel much better about popping this into my purse. The inside of the case on the left inner side is soft and feels like suade or microfiber. This ensures that the screen stays protected when the case is closed. The leopard print looks just like that shown in the promo picture and for the quality, I think that this is priced really well. I am so happy that I found this and I would truly recommend this case.

This is a nice little case. My kindle fits inside perfectly– not loose at all, but not so snug that I’m afraid I’ll have trouble removing it, either. It covers all corners and edges, with the exception of the bottom center where there’s access for the power button and charger. Its very thin and lightweight, and the cover folds back nicely for one-handed reading. I haven’t yet had any problems with the kindle shutting off when I do so like some reviewers have.

There are only two cons with this cover that are keeping me from giving it a full 5 stars. First of all, the cover doesn’t fit completely 100% flat against the face of the kindle. The corners, especially, turn up just slightly. There’s definitely room for something to jet jammed under the cover if you’re not careful with it in your purse or backpack. I can easily see a pen, key, or other such nefarious device finding its way inside the cover and scratching up the kindle.

The other con is the spine of the case. The entire outside of the case is made of this cheap-feeling plastic-y material. On the front and back covers, it’s reinforced, but the spine is just the plastic with the thin microfiber or whatever it is inside. After the first use, there were already little nicks in the plastic at the top and bottom edge of the spine, just from being opened and closed. It’s not a problem yet, as they’re very small, but I’m afraid with how they’ll hold up over time. I’ve only had it for about 5 days now, so it’s much too early to know.

I ordered the flower pattern one, and the color of the case I received is much more yellow than the stock photo. This doesn’t bother me, but be aware, if you have your heart set on that bright grass-green color. Mine is about the color of the “yellow-green” Crayola colored pencil.

Overall, I’m very pleased with the case. I like the design and the color, and the price was great. (Even if it did jump up by a dollar in the 12 hours between when I decided it was the case I wanted and when I actually placed my order…) I’m a little concerned about the long-term durability of the case, and feel like I have to be careful when I bend the front cover back, but for now it’s a great inexpensive way to protect my new kindle without adding much bulk.

Best Leather Cover for Kindle Paperwhite

Searching out Kindle Paperwhite covers, for me it came down to the Poetic Slim Line and the TAGReat Super Slim. They’re both basically the same design, but I ordered the Poetic first, as it had a Green color that I liked. I ended up returning it because the Poetic came with a funky rotten fish like smell to it, that even after letting it air out for a couple of days, it didn’t go away. So I ordered the TAGReat and have been very pleased with it.

Best Designed Cases for Kindle Paperwhite

I like that the TAGReat cover goes all the way around, protecting both the front and back of the Kindle Paperwhite. Amazon apparently doesn’t have a companion case available for the Kindle Paperwhite to go with their Smart Cover. But that’s what I love about this case, is that the front and back are attached so the Smart Cover doesn’t come off. My hubby had an Amazon Smart Cover on his iPad 2, and while they’re nice, in less than a year he had trouble with it falling off…almost like the magnetic connector was losing some of it’s magnetism.

The case fits nice and snug on the Kindle Paperwhite.

All the cut outs for the buttons, charge port, speakers, camera and mic are nicely cut out and have plenty of room. They don’t cover anything or make it hard to get to or use.

The Smart Cover is stiff, of course being new, but it only took about one week of daily use to get it broken in. At first, there was a gap between the cover and the screen (on the left side closer to where the cover attaches to the back case) when the cover was closed and it concerned me a bit, but I’ve been using this case for about 3 weeks now and that gap is starting to go away. I folded and squished that piece between the cover and the back case a bunch and it’s helped to eliminate that little gap.

I haven’t had any problems with the triangle fold or standing the Kindle Paperwhite up on the triangle. The Kindle Paperwhite sits back on just enough of an angle that there’s no worry about it falling over.

The wake/sleep function also works great! No problems there either.

The case itself doesn’t seem to add a lot of weight to the Kindle Paperwhite either. At least not that I have noticed.

It would be nice if there could be a few more color choices available for this case. I didn’t want just black and I didn’t like the light blue, so it came down to the orange or purple. I chose purple. I’ve noticed that they’ve added pink since I ordered my case, so I’m a little hopeful that maybe they’ll get a few more colors in. I would not hesitate to buy another cover if they do. A green or a different shade of blue would be nice.

Ofher than that, I really don’t have anything negative to say about this case. I love my TAGReat CASE!! It’s a great alternative to Amazon’s Smart Cover! Amazon wants $39 for just a Smart Cover, and with this case you get full coverage for your Kindle Paperwhite with a cover that functions exactly as Amazon’s does and for 1/3 the cost of Amazon’s cover!

New Features of The 8th Generation Kindle

Kindle (8th Generation)
Kindle (8th Generation)

Heads up followers – all-new, high-end Kindle almost ready. 8th generation.

I can not recall the last time that I was so excited (or really excited in any way ) about a tech item release.

My very own first generation Kindle Paperwhite is dying.

If I do not restart it every day or two and then the Kindle OS crawls to a halt. The gadget is slow to go the the Home screen, slow to navigate to different functions, as well as slow to access the online book shop. And yes, my Kindle OS is updated.

A few of the features that I really hope to see on the new Kindle contain:

  • Faster page turning.
  • A higher resolution display screen (over 400 ppi).
  • A screen that is a bit larger than the current 6” model (maybe 7”).
  • An easier way to turn pages – like a really solid set of buttons – would be wonderful.
  • A general improvement in the speed of navigation for book browsing and through the OS settings.
  • A return of the text-to-speech function.
  • Enhanced built-in lighting.
  • Bluetooth.
  • Built-in reading analytics, so that I can get a picture of my own reading behaviors.
  • A thinner and lighter device.
  • Changes in the Kindle book shopping experience from the device, such as instant accessto my Wish List.

Kindle features that I do not care about:

  • A colour display screen.
  • Built-in social features.

First, let me be clear I’m reviewing the cartoon case case from TAGreat. When I saw the number of negative reviews, I looked closer at those. It’s obvious that being able to purchase different case models by clicking the appropriate model selection button, then buying that model, did one other thing. It dumped all the reviews for all those models into one review pool. So, if you start getting worried about the negatives, look at which model they’re describing.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, the cartoon case is a plastic shell case. If you’ve ever used a shell case for a smartphone, you’ve got a mental image of thin, smooth plastic covering the back and sides of the phone, there’s not much protection, and the device sets into the shell. That fits how the paperwhite fits into this case. And that’s where the comparison ends. This TAGreat case is notably thicker plastic, so there’s more protection. There’s an attached front cover (also plastic) to protect the screen.

Front and back are textured which makes the case look nicer than you’d expect and gives a good grip. TAGreat claims this is the thinnest and lightest case for the Kindle. If that’s stretching the point, it’s close to right. I’m not noticing a difference in weight and what little additional depth it adds actually makes the Kindle easier to hold. The cover is held closed by a magnet that doubles as a means of putting the Kindle in sleep mode. Both work well. The front cover can be folded back for one handed holding. The magnet doesn’t accidentally put the Kindle in sleep mode when the cover is folded back for reading.

If, for some reason, you need or want to remove the Kindle from the case, starting from the tab where the magnet seems to be the best way to do it. The bottom button and charging port are exposed for access. At $16.99 US, it’s only slightly higher than many other cases, three times cheaper than “official” cases, and light years ahead in style and protection. If I got a second Kindle, I’d also get another TAGreat cartoon case.
