Solid protection for the latest Fire HD 8 from Amazon

Amazon's latest Fire HD 8 (2022) is an iterative update over the 2020 version, but it's still one of the best cheap Android tablets you can buy.

The base tablet cover looks nice and professional in all of its colors, making it a great pick for both teens and adults. On the other hand, the folding cover makes allows for easier media consumption and can help protect the screen even if the tablet is in a bag or takes a tumble. The fabric finish should also hold up well over time, without picking up scratches like plastic cases usually do.

Naturally, for the kids, you'll want something with some crumple zones. Ths is where Amazon's kid-friendly case comes into the picture. It offers a lot of protection from most drops, along with an integrated kickstand to make it easier to use. The three funky color options/designs are sure going to be a hit with the kids and will also let them easily tell their tablet from yours.

Protection with style and substance

Amazon's 2020 Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 8 Plus tablets tout the exact same screen size and dimensions, so you can use the same cases on them. Both Android tablets are excellent devices, so getting a case to keep your tablet of choice protected is a great idea. Not only can you find a case that will help keep your purchase safe, but you can get one that can give it a bit more personality.

Amazon's own case is one of the easiest choices thanks to its simple folio design and a variety of colors. It has one of the most elegant kickstand solutions out there with the front half of the case simply folding in two. The basic color version has a fabric finish that feels nice as well if you want a simpler design. 

However, if you are looking for a simple and reliable cover for your new Fire HD 8 or Fire HD 8 Plus tablet, then consider the Fintie silicone case. It will keep your tablet safe from accidental drops without adding too much bulk to it. With textured sides and back, the case will help reduce the chance that your tablet can slide off surfaces.

Keep your Fire HD 8 and HD 8 Plus tablets protected

Considering how many generations of Fire HD 8 and 8 Plus tablets have been out in the market so far, choosing the right case isn't exactly an easy task. Whether you have the latest generation tablet or one of the older models, getting one of the best Fire HD 8 or 8 Plus cases allows you to keep it protected from falls, scuffs, and much more. That said, there are plenty of different options out there, so you can find the case that specifically fits your needs for what we consider the best of the Fire tablets.

Our favorite pick is the Fintie silicone case for several clever reasons. This heavy-duty Fire HD 8 case not only provides a handle and kickstand, but also fully covers every side of your tablet for extra protection. The built-in screen protector will also prevent scratches from destroying the display, which most other cases don't do. It comes in a bright blue shade that we like quite a lot.

If you plan on taking your tablet with you just about everywhere, you should consider getting the official Amazon Fire HD 8 case. It offers well-rounded protection and has a great design as well. The cover's ability to fold over and prop up the tablet in a variety of orientations will make binge-watching your favorite movies or shows a walk in the park.

For the models from a few years ago, we recommend taking a look at the embossed patten folio case from UUCovers. It offers great build quality along with handy extras like an extra pocket for your credit/debit cards. And with thirty-nine designs/patterns to choose from, you're sure to find one (or more) that you like.
