Its size makes it easy to type with your thumbs, play games like Red Ball 4, or read like a book. One of the issues that I had to overcome was how to copy and backup DVD movies to Amazon Fire HD 8 for playback, as there's no DVD drive with it.
After searching online, I know I have to rip DVD with some best DVD to Fire converter. Here're my testing result.
