Why Amazon’s Fire HD 8 Plus Might Be A Better Option For Controlling Your Smart Home?
While the Echo range of devices from Amazon offers amazing features, it does come with a big drawback. The fact that it is not portable makes it hard for many users. This is where the Fire HD 8 Plus tablet comes to the rescue! You can use it as a smart display, carry it anywhere you want, use it to monitor your smart devices, and do the regular tablet stuff as well. It is closest to the Echo Show 8 in size and comes with dual speakers and front and rear cameras. The Echo Show is a pretty worthwhile investment, especially if you are going to use it in your kitchen, bedroom, or office.
With the Fire HD 8 and the Fire HD 8 Plus offering premium features at relatively lesser cost makes them an amazing purchase. For charging, all you need to do is to place it on the dock. It is great that there are no messy wires. That being said, one drawback of the Fire tablets is that they don’t come with a physical camera cover.
This means that anytime you have the tablet in Show Mode, the camera is technically open. Yes, you can tell Alexa not to listen, or to erase recordings, but there is no indicator light telling you the camera is in use.
