Yep, tried both. Spent a lot of time on it a few months after I got the tablets. As I’d set the card up for adopted storage then few months later the kids started complaining about storage alerts. On checking all the kids+ apps were using internal storage. Researched abs found that was apparently the way it was. Since you mentioned it worked for you I checked again now and it appears some do now use adopted storage. Guessing they changed something in the last update. So atleast that’s a move in the right direction. Unfortunately a lot still don’t :(
Yh like you sead some of the apps cannot be moved to sd card i dont know why maybe they are integrated with the kids programs or something but try moving them manually from normal account not from kids some of them you can move....
Ok did you try using the normal account instead of kids? changing the apps trough storage manualy to sd card ?
I have done that. Under settings->storage the SD card is set as Adopted storage. But most (if not all) of the Kids+ apps wont use the SD card and nor can they be moved to the SD card manually (no option to do so, so presume they require internal storage). I wasted quite a bit of time searching their forums, youtube, etc. And eventually came across a few answers which confirm the Kids+ apps wont use the SD card. I have two of these, one for each of my kids, same problem on both. For example just had a quick look on my eldest's tablet and her profile is using 11GB of internal storage for Apps. Yet its had an SD card set as adopted storage since day 1. If I select her profile under storage, then Apps & Games, then any of the Apps, nothing can be moved across either. As an side, whilst Kids+ is great, the UI/etc is crap. For example you can't sort Apps under storage by size. Pretty basic UI/UX feature. And lots of little bugs and specific menu paths that must be followed to do something, other paths which logically should take you to the same place have features locked off. So you then think a feature isn't available, but actually you can access it, just by going to the menu via another route/profile/etc. Maybe its change recently? Would be happy to be proved wrong. NB: Just double checked via her profile and it looks like they have changed it since I last checked (6 months ago). A few of the Apps are now using external storage. But a lot still aren't, hence she's used so much internal storage. Perhaps some of them cant be switched now without removing and re-adding. In any case, this aspect of their tablets has been a PITA since I've had them, so good if they've finally addressed it. You can check their forums, lots of people have complained about it.
Theres something wrong you have to dedicate tablet to use micro sd instead of internal storage try youtube theres more then enough videos about this
I got one too and if you add Google play services it takes up a huge chunk of ram. Try multitasking on it and it will slow to a crawl. I uninstalled Play services and sideload apps via APK mirror website (you can add all apps minus Google one's) and it runs fine again.
Incorrect. Like I said earlier my stepdaughter has one debloated and with Google Play Services installed and it works fine.
The 7inch isn't worth it. Don't bother installing Google play on this as it will bring the tablet down to a snails pace. The 8 & 10 Inch tablets are good though for the money.
Yes. LTE, bigger screen, smaller body area Disney +. Speed should be a bit faster too. Edit - double Ram and GPS means it excels far beyond the 20 extra.

I bought the Fire Pro 8 Plus as it has 3GB of RAM compared to this which only has 2GB
Currently £99.99 on QVC online. There's a fiver off on first orders which knocks off the 4.99 postage. Probably the cheapest way to get a new fire kids hd8 Pro at the moment. I'm getting one for my almost 7 year old from there unless Amazon come down over the next week...
Thank you :)

You really don't get better value than amazon tablets. Your talking the new HD8. Must be your lucky day as there's a sale on.... Please note there is no Google store built in. There are many websites with step by step downloads (about 4 total) to get it on there. I'd also get a micro sd card 64/128gb. amazon.co.uk/all-new-fire-hd-8-tablet-8-hd-display-32-64-gb-black-with-special-offers-designed-for-portable-entertainment/dp/B07WDF13WC
Are you thick lol (lol) It’s not an e-reader Hence my question
Ask silly questions.....get silly answers.
You want to use it as an e-book reader correct? I'll answer the question, you use the Kindle app on the tablet, when you setup the tablet you have to enter an Amazon account, if you use one that has your Kindle purchases on it they will sync up in the Kindle app on the tablet. Dead simple! Be aware that this isn't a Kindle e-reader, they use e-paper displays which are monochrome much better for reading on even outside, the device in this deal has a normal basic LCD display which you can read on easily enough but it's more fatiguing than using an e-reader.

Very helpful..... Not So you hold a blank screen to your face and move eyes side to side Any chance you’re on medication mate ?
Confusing my 7 and 8 tablets. Id still go for the 8 or 10s more recent models over these though.
Has there been any change to the HD 7 since 2019? The HD 10 has had an upgrade from 2 to 3 GB RAM. The HD 8 Plus is an upgrade on the HD 8 (3GB instead of 2GB RAM), the Plus is what I'd buy today.
yeah i have two HD8s and they work fine for netflix / plex streaming. decent value.
Worth pointing out these are not the latest model but actually the 2019 version.
And the 32GB 7" there is £40 inc p&p. I've got an HD 8 with 16GB. About 2GB of the apps live on the external SD card together with all music, photos and some misc app data. It's replaced a 2nd gen iPad and still works pretty well after 18 months whereas the iPad became pretty useless. To unlock full usage you need to put the Play store onto a Fire.

I've just realized you can set it up as a 24/7 cctv monitor with a routine too. There is a a trigger for "motion not detected" as well as motion detected in routines. If you set up both of them up the Ring cam stays on screen all the time. I have set up with a 1 min delay for motion not detected to give the camera a chance to cool down between streams.
Why not any OPS putting which year version it is (poo) (poo) (poo)

Sounds good, does anyone know if the Eufy doorbell would work in a similar set up?
Yes it's slow, it's a £35 tablet at the end of the day. It really depends what you want it for, I personally use it for watching videos and reading kindle books and it great for that, for surfing the web and playing games probably not.

I’ve ordered 2 32gb Fire 7’s from Curry’s. When I ordered ours they weren’t reduced on Amazon. I’m going to be using mine as an MP3 player with my recently purchased Echo Buds.
Just ordered 2 7" for £36 in total! Traded in two older ones for £10 each then another 20% off. Had to call customer services as it was only taking 10% off at checkout but they applied the full discount for me. Hoping the upgrade makes these better than 1st generation!!!
Cheaper at Currys is an argument. With regards to how slow these are, I think we should look at the price first. I don't like Amazon OS, but for my little boys these are OK, if they get smashed, not a big deal, they are cheap. Speed for the type of apps they use is not an issue either. I guess it depends what you need it for. Didn't look how much cheaper is at Currys,but I'm assuming the difference in price is not big. Given my last 2 experiences with Currys, I prefer amazon.
Thanks, ordered (strong)
Special Offers are no big deal at all. On kids 8's they're both set up to need a PIN for payments and the lockscreen ads simply show the kids that the screen is locked. They're effectively invisible to them. On mine too (mainly ebooks) the ads are there. On previous Fire tablets I've gone through the slight faff of having them removed but I wouldn't even bother now.

I don’t know - you replied to me, so I replied back... no great shakes. Have a lovely rest of the day :)
These are pony. Low cost, low quality, bad performance devices that even the kids won't want to play with.
Are you able to do eBay on this. My iPad mini doesn’t anymore
I find the 10" Tablet a comfortable size, both on the eyes fer reading my Kindle books & ter handle the general everyday stuff. Easy ter use, easy ter set-up, yer gonna be Online within 10 minutes of getting it outta the box, as was I ;) NEED A CASE? I find the cases (yer gonna wanna buy) to be crazy prices if yer go fer the official type, but I got a nice (snug fit, no ugly corner straps or sprung loaded metal corners) case that Auto turns the Tablet ON when opened, and OFF when closed (it's magnetic) fer under £7 delivered, off eBay. Brand new, it doubles as a stand, NOT (sadly) the rotating type, but it will allow you to "stand" yer tablet in Landscape mode. It's my understanding that the Amazon Fire WAS a slow Tablet a year or 2 back, but that it's now some 30% faster? OH well, as with all things, we gotta do our own homework at the end of the day...Horses fer courses people, horses fer courses.

This offer has finished unfortunately its gone back up
As much as your example is relatable, I’ve tried to think of something that betters proves the benefits of the upgrading without exaggerating the cost. It’s more likely getting a brand new Ford Ka when you’ve got a big family, where you’d be better going for a used Ford Galaxy.
Just because something is cheap, doesn't mean it's good value. I'm glad to hear that your son is coping with it - you will most of the internet does not agree with you. The 8 and the 10 are commonly on offer and the former is not far from the price. A second hand or wait for the 8 to go on offer would be a better buy
I don't agree that "for basic tasks it's very sub standard" - my son has one, and for basic tasks (i.e. watching Netflix or YouTube) it's absolutely fine. Of course the 8 is better - it's twice the price, and the 10 is three times the price! So many people advising others to double or triple the amount they should spend without recognising that this is fine for media (or providing any alternatives at the same price point). It's like saying "don't buy a vauxhall, buy a much better bmw"
Even typing lags on this tablet, so I'm warning people who want it for basic tasks that it's very sub standard. The 8, although not great, is much better value for money as it at least doesnt max out at using Google

Would this be better for watching Apple 4K movies via the app, loaded on the fire stick, rather than the Samsung TV app? Plus can you load NowTV on this and get better results than one of their own boxes?
Thanks. Grabbed one on Click and Collect at £34.99
I think the technical term is "loads". Seriously, if you have the gen. 1 stick from 2014 you will not regret upgrading, get the 4K for the small price difference.
