Amazon Fire HD10 review

 Review: November 2015  
 

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: The Fire HD10 is a larger version of Amazon's low-cost tablet designed for use with a Prime membership. This gives you free access to a wealth of movies, TV shows, music, games and popular apps. It's ideal for a family, thanks to comprehensive parental controls, but the budget hardware and Amazon restrictions limit its capabilities as a general purpose tablet.



 

Review

The Fire HD10 is a larger version of the HD8. Instead of an 8-inch screen, it has a 10-inch display, although the number of pixels remains the same, at 1280 x 800 pixels, leading to a lower pixel density of just 149ppi. Still, the extra screen space is useful. The HD10 is exactly the same thickness as the HD8, and proportionately heavier.

The only other change is that the base model has 16GB of memory instead of 8GB.

The HD10 offers a larger screen and more memory, but it's still hampered by the relatively under-performing processor and graphics. Our comments about the Amazon ecosystem apply equally here too, so read our in-depth review of the Fire HD8 to find out more.

Ok so this tablet is never going to win any awards or set the world on fire. Obviously its all about delivering Amazon to your finger tips and tacking full advantage of prime. The ony reason I have this is because using a pro 4 in bed just aint the one when you want to watch a film....... and the fact that Amazon has a device lock on buying content really doesnt help. Design wise i think its pretty good and certainly not that bad to the aye at all. Its made for viewing content, so thats obviously how all the buttons and ports are laid out. They all have enough click if not a little tricky to locate with you finger tips in the dark. Ive been naughty and used a file manager to put the play store on mine so in all respects that changes the very nature of this tablet. Performance is best described as adequate. Its does stutter and lag but to be honest its not that bad at all. This is a somewhat cheap tablet so the ppi is not great. It gets the job done but because its a cheaper tablet dont expect great viewing angles and ..... yes itdoes suffer from light bleed at the edges. Bleed can be seen mostly with letter boxing on films or games with a black background. You can put a micro sd card in up to 128gb. Battery isnt as good on video playback as the manual says. In real life with watching a short film and answering some emails I get around 3.5 to 4 hours. I wouldnt say its worth full price and it only makes sence if you have a prime account and sideload the play store. To be fair, I have used it for light work duties and it has got the job done but that because I have Microsoft office on mine. I would recomend the 32gb version if you find for a good price. My verdict is its a solid (Good) tablet, but only if you put the play store back on it.
