Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition (2019) Review - One tablet for all cases

Well packed. The Kids Edition of the Fire HD 10 tablet is not different from the standard Fire tablet in terms of hardware. Instead, Amazon puts a thick bumper in the box, gives a year of FreeTime Unlimited and rounds it off with an extended warranty.

Case, Software and Operation

The tablet included in the scope of delivery is identical to the conventional Amazon Fire HD 10 (2019). For details on this tablet, please refer to its review. The special feature of the Kids Edition is the new bumper, which is supposed to protect the Fire tablet from rough handling and falls and offers a fold-out stand. The brightly colored material can be pushed in a little and reliably cushions smaller falls. The stand holds the tablet stably in the desired position, but has only one adjustment level. A disadvantage is the strongly increasing dimensions and the comparatively high weight of the tablet together with the bumper.

Another special feature is the software of the Kids Edition. The special user interface of the Kids profiles is clearly arranged and child-friendly, but in combination with FreeTime Unlimited, which is included free of charge for one year, the little ones quickly find themselves at the mercy of a surplus of content. A positive feature is the quite flexibly configurable usage time, which however only differentiates between books, videos, apps and a total screen time. A separate setting of audio content or even individual apps is unfortunately still not possible. More details can be found in the Fire 7 Kids Edition review.

Cameras - Kids Edition without additional functions

Selfie with Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition

With a 2-MP camera on the front and back, the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition does not offer a particularly attractive camera configuration. As expected, the quality of the recordings is mediocre to poor. 

Amazon has not made any major adjustments for the camera app. The software-sided surfaces are now blue instead of black and the user interfaces have been enlarged a bit. A few AR filters or something similar would certainly have increased the fun factor.

Display - Fire HD 10 with bright IPS panel

Sub-pixel array

The Amazon Fire HD 10's 10.1-inch IPS panel has a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and delivers a good pixel density. Due to the comparatively high luminosity, it is also suitable for outdoor use, but direct sunlight should be avoided. 

The uniformity of illumination is good and the values also remain constant during APL50 measurements. Another positive aspect is that Amazon does not use pulse width modulation. The color display, which we checked with the CalMAN analysis software, is also absolutely okay considering the price range.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 17.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 41 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
49.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 26 ms rise
↘ 23.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 82 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17520 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, Emissions and Battery Life

Pink Noise

Amazon provides the Fire HD 10 with a rather young MediaTek-SoC, which in combination with the two GB RAM is well equipped for all everyday tasks. The gaming performance is certainly not outstanding, but Amazon's App Store isn't equipped with demanding games either. The built-in eMMC memory is also sufficiently fast. 

The Fire HD 10 doesn't get particularly warm even without a bumper, with this one there is practically no increase in surface temperatures to be felt. 

The two loudspeakers are well positioned and deliver a decent sound image as long as they're not set too loud. Alternatively, an audio jack or Bluetooth can be used for the sound output. On the software side, a volume limiter would be desirable, at least for the child profiles.

The battery life is a positive surprise, as it turns out very well with fifteen and a half hours and the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition doesn't give the competition a chance.

Cons

- software not flexible enough

Verdict - Good, but the software is stagnating

In Review: Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition (2019). Test device provided by Amazon Germany.
In Review: Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition (2019). Test device provided by Amazon Germany.

Amazon offers the Kids Edition for an additional charge of around 50 euros compared to the conventional Fire HD 10. There are no special offers, a thick bumper with an integrated stand, a free year of FreeTime Unlimited and a two-year carefree warranty, which covers most damage to the tablet. Certainly not only for children a suitable offer. 

The tablet itself offers a good IPS display, decent speakers, integrated Amazon Alexa and the Echo Show mode for this price range. The Octa-Core-SoC delivers a good everyday performance and the 32 GB measuring memory can be expanded via microSD card. 

The hardware and features of the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition are really good, but we still see room for improvement in the software.

With the special offers for children, the US giant offers a wide range of apps, video, audio books and eBooks, especially with FreeTime Unlimited, which is specially adapted to this age group. Unfortunately, the software has been stagnating in its further development for years. Access to audio content, for example, cannot be regulated at all, nor is it possible to limit individual apps. Especially for older children, controlling media time via Google's Family Link and screen time management can therefore make more sense. Similarly, the user must also accept a restricted Amazon universe.

Already as a little dwarf I was fascinated by my Commodore 16 and ignited my enthusiasm for computers. With my first modem I surfed the Btx and later also the World Wide Web. The latest technology trends have always fascinated me and this is especially true for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. For Notebookcheck, I have been on the ball since 2013 and I am looking forward to the innovations that are still to come and that we will put to the acid test for you.
