Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) Review - Cheap "Android tablet" with Qi and keyboard

Standstill in the Amazon cosmos. Amazon offers a Plus model for the first time with its 2021 Fire HD 10 generation. With a "premium soft touch design" and a RAM upgrade as well as wireless charging, the Fire HD 10 Plus is supposed to be the spearhead of Amazon's tablets. Read here whether the plan works out and we can recommend the Alexa tablet.

Test Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021)
Loss of warranty after installation Amazon as improper use

At the end of April this year Amazon presented the Fire HD 10 Plus (2021), a slightly improved version of the current Fire HD 10. The most powerful 10-inch tablet from Amazon so far offers the technical specifications of its little brother, but includes a little more RAM with 4 GB, wireless charging and the new Soft Touch surface.

There are four different versions of the Fire HD 10 Plus to choose from, which can optionally be combined with a productivity set:

  1. 32 GB mass storage / 4 GB RAM: 180 Euros (~$212) with advertising (RRP)
  2. 32 GB mass storage / 4 GB RAM: 195 Euros (~$230) without advertising (RRP)
  3. 64 GB mass storage / 4 GB RAM: 220 Euro (~$259) with advertising (RRP)
  4. 64 GB mass storage / 4 GB RAM: 235 Euro (~$277) without advertising (RRP)

The prices for the also available Productivity Set, which includes a Bluetooth keyboard with detachable case as well as a 12-month subscription for Microsoft 365 Single, are currently around 290 Euros (~$342).

Case - Amazon tablet with new surface

Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus in slate gray
Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus in slate gray

While the last generation of the Fire HD 10 series could not really convince us with its somewhat cheap-looking plastic back, Amazon brings more quality into play with its new soft-touch surface. Although representatives made of metal or glass feel more valuable, according to the manufacturer, the plastic material of the Fire HD 10 Plus was obtained from 28 percent recycled consumer waste. Besides this environmental aspect, the casing also offers a decent grip and fingerprints are well concealed. Amazon also wants to show the company's environmental thinking in the packaging with wood fiber materials that were obtained from responsibly managed forests or recycled sources.

The front of the 10.1-inch Fire tablet is made of reinforced aluminum-silicate glass. The design is still kept "classic", whereby wide bars around the IPS panel characterize the look. The screen-to-front ratio of 72 percent is accordingly not very modern.

There is hardly anything to complain about the case stability of the Fire HD 10 Plus in normal use, but twisting tests reveal a certain flexibility. The build quality is also on a good level for a low-priced mid-range tablet.

Features - Fire HD 10 Plus with 3.5 mm jack

The equipment list of the Fire HD 10 Plus is understandable in view of the low price. The 6,500 mAh battery is charged via a USB-C port on the right side of the tablet. The port allows USB OTG for quickly connecting external keyboards or USB sticks, but only complies with the USB 2.0 standard. Headphones can be connected via the built-in 3.5 mm jack.

The internal eMMC storage has a capacity of 64 GB in our review sample, but the user only has a good 55 GB available in the state of delivery. A storage expansion is still possible and can be increased by up to 1 TB with a microSD card. The storage media can be formatted as internal storage, but the exFAT file system is not supported.

We take a closer look at the memory slot's speed with our reference memory card Toshiba Exceria Pro M501. While the results in the CPDT benchmark are appealing, the performance in our JPEG Copy test is quite slow at 28 MB/s.

Software - Fire tablet only with Android 9

The adaptations of the US online retailer are very extensive and Fire OS has very little in common with the underlying Android operating system. The user interface of the Amazon tablet is not based on Android 10, but, like the predecessor on Android 9. The security updates cannot be read directly under Fire OS; according to the CPU-Z app, this is from October 2018.

The Fire tablet can only be used sensibly with an Amazon account and the associated services, such as music, video, audio books or eBooks. Of course, the Fire HD 10 Plus also supports the in-house voice assistant Alexa and can be used via voice control with the Hands-Free function. In addition, the Fire tablet in "Show Mode" is a possible replacement for the Echo Show model. The Kids Mode can also be used to create a safe area where no access to purchases via Amazon apps is possible. However, there is a special kids model from the Fire series that comes with a protective case that has a fold-out stand.

The Fire tablets only come with the Amazon app store ex-works, which offers some common apps, but lacks the broad app variety of a Play Store. However, Google services and the Google Play Store can easily be installed later. However, a Play Protect certification is not available, so some apps cannot be installed. Furthermore, the installation of the GMS leads to a loss of warranty, since Amazon sees improper use here.

Video content from video streaming services, such as the in-house Prime Video, can be watched in HD quality since a Widevine Level 1 certification is available. The Camera2 API level is "Full".

Communication and GNSS - Amazon tablet supports Bluetooth 5.0

The integrated WLAN module supports the IEEE 802.11 standards a/b/g/n/ac and transmits in the frequency ranges of 2.4 and 5.0 GHz. The transmission speed between the inexpensive 10-inch Fire tablet and our reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12 is on the level of the predecessor. The data rates are in a decent range of about 300 MBit/s for the price range and are relatively constant during the test.

Since Amazon does not offer a model with an integrated cellular modem or GPS module, the Fire HD 10 Plus does not allow mobile browsing or positioning for navigation tasks on the go. Bluetooth version 5.0 is available for wireless communication. There is no chip for near-field communication (NFC).

A probable field of application for a tablet is video calls or video conferencing. We use the Skype app from the Amazon AppStore to check the voice quality of the built-in microphone. The voice reproduction with the Fire tablet is a bit quiet. However, we are understandable for our conversation partners.

Cameras - Fire HD 10 Plus with single cam

Recording with the 2 MP front cam of the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus
Recording with the 2 MP front cam of the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus

The 2 MP camera on the front has a resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels in a 4:3 aspect ratio and an open aperture of f/2.2. Amazon does not provide detailed information about the installed camera module. The quality of the built-in optics on the front is only sufficient for the optical presence during video calls - but nothing more. Selfies look very blurred and out of focus. The exposure in the pictures could also be improved.

The 2 MP main camera of the predecessor would be replaced by a 5 MP lens with f/2.4 aperture. Due to the non-existent autofocus, the image sharpness is not really better than with the 2-MP optics on the front, and the pictures are also blurred here. Details and structures are often lost in blur and the dynamics in the pictures are also not very pronounced. Our test subject is barely recognizable in very low light.

The Fire HD 10 Plus captures colors surprisingly well. Under controlled lighting conditions, we subject the rear-facing main camera to further tests with the ColorChecker port and analyze the color reproduction of the 5 MP lens in comparison with the actual reference colors. The colors are really well reproduced. Only black and gray tones show larger deviations in the ColorChecker.

The image sensor used on the back records videos in a reasonable quality in a maximum Full HD resolution, and the front-facing camera only records moving pictures in 720p.

Accessories and warranty - Fire HD 10 Plus with many extras

Test Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021)
Power supply of the Fire HD 10 Plus
Power supply of the Fire HD 10 Plus

The Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) comes with a modular power supply with a rated power of 9 watts and a USB Type-C cable. However, Amazon also offers additional accessories, which range from a matching protective case to a Bluetooth keyboard with a removable black cover (RRP: 50 Euros/~$59) and a wireless charging dock (RRP: 50 Euro) ranges.

The latter not only charges the Amazon tablet wirelessly with 15 watts, but can also be used with any Qi-enabled smartphone. The charging station offers a fabric-covered surface that is pleasant to the touch. Both in portrait and landscape mode, the Fire HD 10 Plus stands stably and securely thanks to a precisely fitting notch, but the use is limited to one set-up angle. The charging dock is particularly interesting with the tablet's show mode so that it can display information and still be controlled via voice command while charging.

In terms of productivity, the PU leather-covered Bluetooth cover, made of polycarbonate, is ideal. The cover, to which the Fire HD 10 Plus is attached via magnets, is well-made, but the pressure points of the keyboard are quite spongy, so typing could have been more comfortable. Considering the price range of the case, the workmanship is absolutely fine.

Amazon grants buyers of the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) a limited one-year manufacturer's warranty. This Warranty is in addition to the legal warranty claims.

Input devices & operation - Amazon tablet without FaceUnlock

Neither a fingerprint sensor nor a biometric identification via face can unlock the Amazon tablet. The classic PIN or password must be used here. However, the capacitive touchscreen of the Fire HD 10 Plus can be used accurately up to the corners. Both the precision and the surface's gliding capabilities do not give reason for criticism.

Display - Fire HD 10 Plus with IPS panel

Display sub-pixel
Display sub-pixel

The 25.7 centimeter (~10.1 inches) diagonal LC display of the Fire HD 10 Plus has a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels with an aspect ratio of 16:10. This results in a fairly low pixel density of 224 ppi, which is better than the competition - with the exception of the Chuwi HiPad Plus - but they don't do any better in this price segment. However, the given resolution is okay for media consumption in everyday use, but small fonts look a bit blurry when browsing with Amazon's tablet.

In our luminance measurements, the inexpensive tablet achieves a maximum brightness of only 366 cd/m² on average. The low homogeneity in the panel's illumination of only 77 percent is striking. In the more realistic APL50 measurement, which simulates an even distribution of bright and dark areas on the screen, it is 457 cd/m² at the peak. Our measurements show that Amazon does without PWM for brightness control in the Fire HD 10 Plus.

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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21033 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The somewhat mixed impression of the display is continued by the relatively high black value of 0.6 cd/m² (APL 50: 0.58 cd/m²). The not too rich black of the LC panel results in low contrasts below 1:800.

There is also room for improvement in terms of color accuracy and the accuracy of the grayscale. The IPS panel's Delta-E deviations are okay for a 180 Euro (~$212) tablet, but the predecessor performed better in our measurements.

Not only the display hardware is at a standstill, but the software still offers hardly any settings, such as adjusting the color temperature. Only a Blue Shade option is available for the user.

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
24.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.4 ms rise
↘ 12.4 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. » 44 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.2 ms rise
↘ 22.8 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. » 64 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.6 ms).

The low contrast ratio and the weak luminosity make the display poorly legible outdoors. Contents are not legible in direct sunlight, but the panel also reaches its limits in reflections in the shade.

Thanks to the liquid crystal display used, contents of the Fire HD 10 Plus are mostly color-stable. However, the displayed contents look less vivid at very flat viewing angles and the brightness drop is also clearly perceptible.

Performance - Fire Tab with lame SoC

The Mediatek Kompanio 500 (MT8183) is a SoC from 2019 that is manufactured in 12 nanometers and has a total of eight CPU cores (octa-core). These are composed of four Cortex-A73 and four Cortex-A53 cores that work together in a big.LITTLE array. The graphics unit is a Mali-G72 MP3.

The system does not always run smoothly in everyday use, but there are rarely big delays. The system performance is subjectively satisfactory for a low-priced tablet, but the loading times of the Amazon tablet are correspondingly long due to the slow eMMC storage. However, the eMMC flash storage installed in the Fire HD 10 Plus delivers write and read rates that are on par with the competition.

In the benchmarks, the MediaTek MT8183 in combination with 4 GB of RAM meets the competition with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 on an equal footing. However, the performance level turns out to be relatively low and compared to a Fire HD 10 (2019), the performance increase is rather marginal or non-existent despite the RAM upgrade. The performance of the aging Mali-G72 MP3 is low as well, but a Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 or Lenovo Tab P11 does not offer better results in the GFXBench - with the exception of the onscreen rates, which are sometimes a bit low.

Games - Fire HD 10 Plus does not manage 60 FPS

The Mali-G72 only integrates 3 clusters in the MP3 version. The given graphics performance still ensures smooth playback even in demanding games like PUBG mobile at high details. The shooter is rendered with HD graphics settings at about 30 FPS after initial game content has finished loading in the background - the UHD option cannot be selected on. At least 54 FPS are possible in Armajet - we use the app from GameBench to determine our frame rates.

The integrated position sensors work without problems in gaming mode and the touchscreen works precisely.

Emissions - Amazon tablet stays cool

Temperature

The casing of the Fire HD 10 Plus hardly heats up in everyday use. We use the battery test of the app GFXBench to check the internal heat dissipation during sustained load. The Manhattan 3.1 test clearly shows that the frame rate remains very constant after a prolonged load phase. Thus, performance drops, among others in games, are unlikely.

We cannot run the stress tests of the 3DMark benchmark due to the outdated Android version. Amazon would have to update Fire OS to Android 10 for this.

Speaker

The stereo speakers on the upper case side are sufficiently loud with over 90 dB(A) and the sound qualities are also quite convincing considering the price. As expected, there is hardly any bass in the sound image, but the recorded curve in the Pink Noise test is relatively linear. Especially in comparison with the Fire HD 10 (2019) the high and super-high tones in the sound picture are improved.

A better sound output via headphones is made possible either via the 3.5 mm jack or via Bluetooth 5.0. The noise level of the jack is a bit pronounced at 76.2 dBFS, but the achieved volume is satisfactory. Only SBC is supported in terms of BT codecs.

Power management - Fire HD 10 Plus with long runtime

Energy Management

The power consumption is on a decent level for a 10-inch tablet. Compared to the Fire HD 10 2019 the 2021 generation is a bit more energy efficient.

A full charge takes just under 4 hours with the included 9-watt adapter when the device is in standby mode. The Qi-certified Fire HD 10 Plus can be charged in about 30 minutes less with the optional 15-watt wireless charging dock.
