MoKo Fire HD 8 Honeycomb

Here's another option from MoKo that's slightly more universal than a children's case. It's a soft silicone case designed specifically for the Fire 8, 2017 model. It should fit tightly while still maintaining easy access to buttons and ports.

The honeycomb pattern improves grip as well, and limits the tablet from sliding around on flat surfaces – while raised edges prevent your Fire 8's screen from getting scratched when laid down flat.

MoKo Keyboard Case for Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet

The case also puts the tablet to sleep on closing.

While some users may find that the additional keyboard adds bulk to the case when closed, this may still be a helpful feature to those who prefer the ease of a physical keyboard. MoKo offers a 1 year warranty on this case.

If you're after affordable, decorative cases Fintie is a great option. The brand offers a range of colours and designs, and best of all its cases fit both the 2017 and the 2016 versions of the Fire 8.

Some of the stand out features of the Fintie case is that it auto-wakes your Fire 8 device on opening, and puts it to sleep on closing. You can fold the front flap into two viewing angles as well: an upright position for browsing (and binge-watching), and a low angle tilt for typing.

Of course, for a standard sleek and stylish case, Amazon’s options may be the best way forward. Their lightly-built case allows the device to stand upright in both the portrait and landscape orientation, thanks to a front flap that creases diagonally.

Unlike the other cases featured in this article, Amazon’s cover is weaved with a polyester fabric and keeps your device's screen clean with a microfiber interior. The case also puts the tablet to sleep on closing, and remains closed with a magnetic fastener.

Amazon’s cases are available in single-tone colours Canary Yellow, Charcoal Black, Cobalt Blue, Marine Blue and Punch Red.
