Amazon has seemingly given up making high-end tablets, but that’s good for the low end. The latest slate is an updated HD 8, which will only set you back £89.99. For that price you get a decent slew of features including baked in access to all of Amazon’s excellent services and the ability to save shows and movies to an SD card. Battery life is decent and the 16GB storage is great for the price, but the you will have to put up with a load of adverts all over the UI.

It’s not the fastest tablet around, and the cameras are quite terrible, but if you just want to soak up media then it’s a great pick.
