Couch surfer. Amazon Prime customers who do not mind some advertisements will find the 10-inch seventh generation Fire HD Tablet great value for money. As expected, the tablet is no high-end product, however it definitely comes with a few high value components that make it an entertainment specialist. In our review, we will shed light onto the limitations you can expect with this device.

80% Amazon Fire HD 10 review: can Amazon’s largest tablet take the fight to the iPad?
Source: T3 English
At £190-less than the basic iPad, the Amazon Fire HD 10 certainly has pricing on its side. It can't really be argued with as a route to getting a decent tablet, but it's nowhere near the best you can get. The core specs are OK (aside from the cameras, which are terrible) and if you just need a tablet for streaming, shopping and basic browsing then it's a great option.

90% Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017 Edition): The Best Value Tablet Around
Source: Make Use Of English
The Amazon Fire HD isn’t so much an Android tablet, as a subsidized Amazon consumption device. If you don’t have an Amazon Prime account and don’t plan on getting one, it’s very difficult to recommend the Amazon Fire HD to you. It’s still enormously good value as a tablet, but you’re probably going want a more pure Android experience with out of the box access to Google Play store, which you won’t find here.

88% Amazon Fire HD 10 review (2017): A $150 tablet that's actually good
Source: Engadget English
The Fire HD 10 is a glimmer of hope in the barren Android tablet wasteland. It fixes everything we didn't like about the last model, while dropping down to an incredibly low price for a 10.1-inch slate. It's just a shame that such a well-crafted Android device can't run Google's services. As it stands, though, the Fire HD 10 is still the cheap slate to beat this year.

Of all the affordable tablets we've tested, the Fire HD 10 packs both the best screen and the fastest performance. Unfortunately, we were hoping its larger size could enable more battery life, and we're not exactly giddy to spend so much on a slate that can't use Google apps.

Amazon Fire HD 10 review: Going big on entertainment
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Amazon Fire HD 10 takes the experience of the smaller Fire tablets and boosts it. The size of this device is perhaps a little uncharacteristic now, as larger tablets have generally fallen from favour - unless they are made by Apple. While you don't get the lightest, thinnest or highest specs in the Fire HD 10, this is undoubtedly good value for money, with a price that's hard to ignore.

I don’t think cheap tablets will ever be as interesting as they were a few years ago, when the iPad was a much more expensive device. But while the Fire HD 10 won’t win over anyone looking to replace their laptop with a tablet, it’s still a fine tablet for doing basic things that doesn’t cost a fortune.

The Fire HD 10 fits into a big tablet space that's fairly empty at the moment. Many have boosted the performance of their tablets and added keyboards or a stylus as a replacement for a laptop. Amazon has no such aims. This is about entertainment first and foremost.

The Fire HD 10 fulfills Amazon's simple plan for its tablets: Like other Fires, it's an inexpensive ($149.99 with lock screen ads) way to consume your Amazon content. At first glance, it doesn't appear to be the barn-burning deal that the Fire HD 8 is, but it still offers plenty of bang for your buck. You get a sharp 1080p display, solid overall performance, and an easy-to-use UI that includes parental controls and Alexa voice assistant integration. The Fire HD 10 is simply the best 10-inch tablet for the price, earning it our Editors' Choice.

Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017): Why It's Good for Business
Source: Business News Daily English
The Amazon Fire line is designed for entertainment, so if you're looking for a tablet that can function as a robust work machine, it's not for you. That said, if you want an inexpensive tablet that comes with free 24/7 remote access support, easy access to media and internet, and built-in Alexa, the Fire HD 10 fits the bill. This tablet is ideal for business travelers who want a secondary device to make flights a little more enjoyable and daily life a little more convenient.

Comment

Model: The Amazon Fire HD 10 2017 features a great 10-inch screen and it is fast enough to run plenty of apps. It is cheap and powerful, and it finally brings a solid display into Amazon's slate lineup. It is the ideal machine for binge watching, though be prepared to live without Google's apps. The Fire HD 10 looks and feels like a larger Fire HD 8. It is a solidly built tablet with a black, blue, or orange plastic body. The slate measures 262 x 159 x 9.8 mm (10.3 x 6.3 x 0.4 inch) and weighs 0,49 kg (17.4 ounces). It is a sturdy slab that will survive some knocks and dings, but it is not officially rugged or waterproof. There are loud dual speakers on the left side (or the bottom if hold in landscape orientation), along with a standard headphone jack, a USB port, and a microSD card slot to supplement the 32 GB of internal storage. Out of 32 GB of internal storage, user have 24.3 GB available for use. The card slot worked fine with a 256 GB card. Under the hood, it packs in 2 GB of RAM (twice as much as before), as well as a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor, which Amazon claims is 30 percent faster than the last model's. Web browsing using the default Silk browser is fast, and the slate had no trouble streaming 1080p videos and opening multiple tabs. Amazon also included a 2-megapixel camera on the rear, which is a very low resolution for a front-facing camera these days, let alone a primary shooter. There is also a front-facing VGA (640 x 480 pixels) camera that feels like a blast from the past. These cameras are primarily for video chatting.

Amazon's Fire OS is based on Android Lollipop and runs Android apps, but user can not access the Google Play store. User can only use Amazon's store and it has a lot of competing media services. The OS looks nothing like Android. It is a carousel of downloadable Amazon content and apps. The new Fire HD 10 is Amazon's first tablet to offer completely hands-free communication with its virtual assistant. Instead of pressing a button to issue commands, users can simply say "Alexa" out loud, even when the tablet is asleep. It works much like Amazon's Echo devices, except for the fact that users will also get some on-screen feedback in addition to the assistant's voice responses. The battery life is solid. When streaming full-screen video over Wi-Fi at maximum brightness, the tablet clocked 6 hours, 14 minutes, over an hour longer than the HD 8 (4 hours, 42 minutes). It should be enough juice to keep kids entertained during a long car ride. Enabling Low Power mode and Automatic Smart Suspend increases runtime by tamping down screen brightness and turning off wireless connectivity when it is not in use. The Fire HD is suitable for kids and those who are specifically looking for a media based tablet. However, if you want your tablet to do a little more than that, this might not be the right choice. The market is flooded with other choices.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
