Other Amazon Devices on Sale
There are a few other Amazon devices we like on sale right now. We highlighted our favorites below, but you can see the full list in our guide to the best Prime Day device deals.
Fire HD 10 for $100 ($50 off): The Fire HD 10 is a much more capable tablet than the 8. It’s faster, has more storage, and the 10-inch HD screen looks much nicer.
Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet for $80 ($50 off): The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is our top pick for kids under 7. If your kid’s hands are especially tiny, they’ll appreciate the Fire 7’s smaller size. It’s also on sale.
Fire TV Stick 4K for $25 ($25 off): The Fire Stick 4K is the best of Amazon’s Fire TV devices. We prefer the Roku, all things considered, but if you’re a heavy Prime Video user with a 4K screen, this makes a good streaming device.
Echo Dot for $22 ($27 off): This hockey-puck-shaped Echo handles spoken audio well, and the new version sounds better with music, but it still lacks the quality you’ll find in larger speakers. But if you want to add Alexa to more rooms in your house, the Dot makes a cheap and easy way to do it.
Echo Show + Some Extras for $160 ($135 off): At first, it seems odd to have an Alexa speaker with a display screen. But after using it you’ll understand the appeal. When you ask it for the weather, it tells you and also shows you, thanks to the 10-inch display screen and also rear audio speakers.
