I have a Fire 8 (2016) without Ads and I love it. My purchase was from the mother-ship when it first came out. I shopped around and simply didn’t find anything remotely close to the price with the hardware this has. The RAM and CPU are the most important features about the 2016 vs 2015 version. Stepping up to the 2017 only offers a better camera and Alexa always listening (versus holding the home soft-key). That is not enough change to make me want to buy the latest version and have waited for the 2016 model to show back up to give as gifts.
The tablet will update to the latest FireOS so what it has when you unbox it should be irrelevant.
Netflix is great and with a memory card and long battery life, you can download movies and watch with plenty of time to spare.
I wasn’t impressed with the Silk web browser so I downloaded Chrome.
Below is a link to install Google Play store onto this tablet. I did it on mine with no issue and am running Boom Beach/Clash of Clans/etc. on my 2016 Kindle Fire 8. The only negative I will say is you have to go into the Play store and check for updates on your own instead of a notification telling you to or it auto-updating the Google Apps (Fire Apps still auto-update). A very minor inconvenience in my opinion.
Read the instructions before following them!
Enjoy your Kindle/Android tablet
Oh, one more thing. I do not believe it is possible to cast from this to Google ChromeCast.
One trained by Amazon and now doing these out of his garage, or one who still works at Amazon?
