Four reasons why the Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet will be your best travel buddy this summer

Thank you Amazon for sponsoring this post. Be sure to pick up your own Fire HD 8 tablet for your next adventure!

Whether it is a short trip to the beach or a road trip cross country, there is definitely one thing that you cannot forget to bring with you, and that is the new Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet. I received it about 2 weeks ago and have been using it nonstop for basically everything. With a battery life of up to 10 hours, you can do all of your favorite things, like watch movies or TV shows, read your favorite books, play games, or just surf the web. Let me tell you just why the Fire HD 8 tablet is the perfect companion for your next trip.

It is an all-in-one entertainment device.

The Fire HD 8 tablet offers all kinds of entertainment. Besides being able to read books and watch videos on the 8” high definition display with over 1 million pixels, you can also download a ton of different apps and games. If you are traveling for a longer period,  it has 16GB of internal storage and an additional slot for a microSD card that can add an additional 400GB of storage for all of your movies and TV shows, pictures, games and more.

It is light and the size makes it easy to bring with you everywhere. 

The 8” screen is big enough to comfortably watch movies or read a book, and it is also just the right size to fit into smaller bags and pockets for when you’re traveling or just on-the-go between meetings. And best of all, it’s very light, so it is easy to bring with you everywhere. I think that the size is just right and it is extremely comfortable to hold.

It has a front and back camera, and you can store all your photos for free on the cloud.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet has an HD 720p front-facing camera for taking selfies or video chatting with friends and family. And, it also has a 2MP rear-facing camera to take pictures of your favorite moments. Best of all, you also have access to unlimited cloud storage for free so you can share your images across devices and send them to friends and family as well.

You get a ton of Amazon exclusive benefits.

If you forget to download a TV series or movie before a trip, On Deck makes sure you already have a selection shows downloaded and ready to watch while offline. Amazon’s Whispersync also remembers how much you’ve watched, read or listened to so you can pick up right where you left off. And of course, if you’re a Prime member, you have access to award-winning movies and TV shows on Prime Video, unlimited access to one thousand books and magazines with Prime Reading, and more than 2 million songs and over one thousand hand-curated playlists with Prime Music. I love that I can have the Kindle and Audible apps on my Fire HD 8 to read or listen to books.

These are my four absolute favorite things about the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet and I will definitely continue to use mine all of the time. I feel like I’m always finding new fun things to do with it. My latest obsession is drawing on the tablet! You can find the Fire HD 8 tablet here on Amazon for only $79.99 (ARV) and it comes in Black, Marine Blue, Punch Red and Canary Yellow.

Words With Friends 2

This post is sponsored by Zynga, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I have always been a big fan of games that challenges me and makes me use my brain. Words With Friends 2 makes me feel super smart while playing against friends and other people online. If I’m ever unsure of whether a word actually exists I use the dictionary feature in WWF2. I find most of my friends by connecting the app to my Facebook. If you guys want to challenge me, my username is sofiaN100.

Since Words with Friends 2 is played on the phone is the perfect game for me. I can play wherever I am or wherever I am going. I have a ton of travel plans coming up and it will be the perfect pastime activity. This summer I’m enjoying laying out in the sun a lot or walking around the city. No matter where I go I can bring Words With Friends 2 with me – and play together with my friends even if they’re on the other side of the world. I’m really not the best at this game. But I am learning more words as I go and progressing towards becoming a better player.

Have you ever played Words With Friends? If not you can download it right here. Let me know in the comments down below what your favorite Words With Friends moment is. It can be an epic Words With Friends game you’ve played or just a story of maybe how you met a new friend.

Find it with tile

 

Do you ever happen to misplace or lose your things and end up spending more time finding them than you would actually using them? Well, in that case tile can help you! I rarely misplace my keys or wallet, but have a tendency to misplace my cameras or accessories for them. And so, every time I really need to use any of them, I have put them somewhere. But Im not completely sure of where they are. So, I go absolutely ballistic trying to find them. No more! Thanks to tile I can attach it to my camera, my remote controls – literally anything. And tile will help me find whatever I am looking for.camera find it with tile Thanks to the tile app I can connect one or more tiles to my items making it super easy to find my items. When I press find the tile will play a tune so I can find it if I am nearby. If my item with the tile isn’t closely a map can show me where I last was close to it. What I love about this as well is that if i double press the tile – it finds my phone and my phone makes a sound. Its kind of a reverse function so they find each other! I love it since I often misplace my phone as well.

The New Coolpad Conjr

I have been testing out the new phone from Coolpad. The Coolpad Conjr. With a 5 inch HD screen and sleek iron gray aluminum body. The design itself caught my eyes. Conjr has an impressive 13 megapixel camera on the back and a 8 megapixel camera on the front. Both with LED flash. As a blogger and active instagrammer it is crucial that any phone keep up with the photo quality. Especially if I don’t have my camera with me. Trying out the camera was one of the things I was most excited about.

Conjr is an Android phone so it took me a little while to get used to the new user face. I haven’t even touched an android phone in years. I was surprised by the super user friendly design and that the fingerprint reader is on the back of the phone. Exactly where I would put my finger normally. Reading my fingerprint without any problems and unlocks instantly.

Something else that is really cool about the Conjr is that it has two slots for either SIM cards or extra memory cards. Being able to have 2 SIM cards in one phone will be super handy for traveling or if you want to have a business number and a private number. But only one phone. The phone comes with 16 GB built in memory which isn’t a lot. However the phone fits up to two extra memory cards.

So what do I like about the phone? Even though it is an Android the user face is really easy to navigate and the design makes it easily accessible to unlock, lock and navigate trough apps. The 5 inch screen is just the perfect size in my opinion. All of the buttons below the screen are touch. So there are no physical buttons except from the on/off button and the volume button. The camera has a kind of wide angle lens. When taking photos in low light it really works magic. A pro function lets you change the ISO, exposure and more which was really enjoyable! There is also a selfie beauty function. Frankly I would keep this function to the Asian market only. Although the rear camera has an impressive 13 megapixel I found that the photos would come out kind of grainy if the natural light was low. The PRO function was my absolute favorite especially when good daylight is provided.

Considering that the price for the phone is only $179 and that it comes unlocked. It is really a steal if you need a good phone, but not a spectacular one. The sturdy design is great while still being light weight. If it weren’t for the fact that I had bought a new phone just a couple weeks before receiving this, I would have used it full-time. I will keep this close and definitely use it for travels. I will have this phone with me during the upcoming week so keep an eye out on my other social media platforms to see photo quality and more. You can also follow Coolpad America on Instagram for updates and more.

The phone is available at Amazon and Newegg.
