This fire deal makes the already affordable Amazon HD 8 Plus tablet a total steal
The Amazon Prime Day has entered its second and final day, and it's tablets galore out there, with plenty of choices to pick from. If you are looking for a no-frills, super affordable tablet with long battery life, the Fire HD 8 Plus might be just what you are looking for. With a price tag of $109.99, Amazon's slate is already pretty inexpensive, but it has now been marked down by $35, which means you can get it for just $74.99.

The Fire HD 8 Plus is one of the best budget tablets around. It is powered by the MediaTek 8168 processor and has 3GB of RAM and 32GB base storage, which can be expanded up to 1TB. As the name implies, it sports an 8-inch screen with a resolution of 1,280x800 pixels. For the price, the display is as good as it gets, and the performance is also quite zippy. The tablet offers a battery life of 12 hours and it can be charged wirelessly.

The device runs Amazon's FireOS, which, as you would expect, comes loaded with Amazon's services. The front camera has been relocated to the side to facilitate video calling in the landscape mode.

The HD 8 Plus is only available in a slate color
