Can you attach a wired mouse to the fire?
While this seems likely to happen, that's not always the case. My kids, 5 and 8, have been taught to look after their gadgets and haven't ever "thrown" a phone or tablet. My son has an older 7" fire tablet which is nigh on unusable now due to the hardware. I've actually just ordered 2 of the £45 ones for Christmas but I'm probably going to cancel as I think the extra 1GB on the Plus version will be better in the long run. I don't want to have to buy a new tablet every year.
Hi dnaddison,im no tech whizz but purely on common sense mode save the extra and get her the cheaper one,after she has dropped or even thrown it a couple of times your wonder why you spent the extra.
I'm trying to weigh up between the standard and plus. It's only for my 5 year old daughter as a bit of an upgrade on the 8th gen one she has.
Amazon Fire HD8 and HD8 Plus Full Tablet Full Review the extra RAM helps quite alot when opening multiple tabs in a browser or switching between apps for example, but not in raw performance terms. I have the HD10 and the lack of RAM (2GB) hinders it, so went with the HD8 Plus variant.
