Also as mentioned already, I do have Android 7.1 cause I bought the Fire HD 8 late in 2018.

to reemphasize my procedure. I pick up the tablet which is laying on it's back while "ON" and press the button and the screen flicks alive and shows a nice pretty ad with John Snow for the GOT Slots Casino Game (whatever that is) and the time and battery charge.

I then lay the tablet down without pressing anything else.

Tuesday 4:45 PM (32+ approx 16) = 48 hours or so == 70% Charge

plus Alexa was on the entire tim.

My test is now over also.

That's a keeper. I'm about 32 hours in. I turn on the screen to check the battery 3 or 4 times...then screen off.

Both my Amazon Fire HD 8 (year before last) and Walmart tablet are at 56%

My HD 8 is a year younger (about 7 or 8 months old), gets minimal use (doctor's offices, car dealer, waiting for wife to come out of the store, ""WAITING type situations"" and that could explain the difference in battery life.

All indicators point to a good product.

What meat?
During the course of bankruptcy, everything but the right to pursue further litigation was sold. And if one takes the precedent set by the Denver Appalete court, in one of the SCO v the World cases, that right was also sold.

The Fire HD 8 also has a choice of 16 or 32 GB of memory.
Plus of course there is "the cloud" if you want.

I am well pleased.

My wife swears by her Fire 7 and gave up a nice Samsung 7 Plus.

Thank you. Went out and bought the Onn and 64gb memory card. I'm really impressed with it for an inexpensive tablet. Actually wanted it to take to hospital stay and rehab after open heart surgery. If it gets lost or stolen i'm not losing my Samsung or Asus tablets.
Everything seems to work great, have Andriod phone so probably not buy another Fire tablet. Only thing i don't like on the Onn is the stickey screen saver, I hope someone will soon have a glass one.

Is the "screen saver" just the film meant to be removed after opening the box?

frahse, yeah it's pretty nice slots by the way, hah. If i have a little bit of free time - I prefer to spend it on table games online, which can relax me a little bit, to forget about my problems and sometimes even earn some money. Not every game can give you such reliability in the game process, but few of them.

ASUS tables are much better than Samsung, in my opinion.

I've been using both for a long time.
