In recent times, the tablet users have been little more than the iPad users. There is no lid that makes that pleasant suction sound as you gently lift it, revealing a glass and metal slab so pristine it could part the heavens, but for below half the value of even the low-cost 10 in iPad. While the company has found great success with its smaller and cheaper Fire 7, and now the excellent Fire HD 8, the previous Amazon Fire HD 10 has a bit hit and misses but this time around the right corners have been cut in the pursuit of a cheaper price.
They’ve had the price tactic down – £149 for the 32GB model and £179 for the 64GB, but times have transformed since the Fire HD 10 first introduced. Apple’s low-priced iPad has fallen down to £339, which closes the gap enough to invite you to open your wallet a slight further. The price ranges of these Android tabs keep dropping. The Amazon’s Fire HD 10 latest versions are near $400 years before, but it dropped down to $230, and now it rated almost at $150.
The Amazon’s Fire HD 10 specifications are:
10.1-inch widescreen display (1920 x 1200)
Up to 10 hours of battery life
32 and 64 GB options, with microSD expansion, supported
Quad-core processor with up to 1.8 GHz and 2GB of RAM
Free unlimited cloud storage for Amazon content
Dolby Atmos stereo speakers
The new Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet offers a new 10.1-inch display with 1920p x 1200p of resolution. It has browsing web pages, good viewing angles, making it great for watching the video or reading eBooks. Amazon’s also upgraded the sound with two Dolby Atmos-tuned speakers, and the processor has been bumped up to a newer MediaTek quad-core chip paired with 2GB of RAM, which Amazon claims is 30 % quicker than the 2k15 Amazon’s Fire HD 10’s chip. The entry-level model comes with 32GB of storage, but you can pay more for 64GB or just use a microSD card to expand the storage.
Features AND Design for Amazon Fire HD 10:
Amazon Fire HD 10 design-wise the 2017 tablet looks much like its predecessor. It’s a couple of millimeters (MM) thicker and 68g heavier than the previous model, which isn’t ideal, but most people will be happy with the extra two hours of battery life. When held portrait the power button is top right and the volume top left, with the speakers on the left-hand side.
Amazon says they are Dolby tuned, but even if the singing part comes through clear and loud there’s still a separate lack of bass, so you’ll prefer to connect headphones or a good excellence Bluetooth speaker for listening to quality music. There’s a normal headphone jack, too.
Although screens on Fire tablets have been decent for a while now, this one is clearly the best. The Full HD resolution means it’s the details are more sharp and extra in depth than any other Fire Tablet, and it has great colors and wide viewing angles. If there’s any weakness it’s that it isn’t hugely bright, but in most conditions, it’s perfectly fine.
The biggest plus is having Alexa in the tablet, hands-free. Alexa’s capabilities are constantly improving and on the Amazon Fire HD 10, she can do valuable things such as searching for videos, opening apps, playing music and changing the volume. This could have been down to a variable internet connection, but it just highlights that vocal response is wanted to tell you that she’s dealing with your demand instead of continuing to show the ‘I’m listening’ blue bar at the bottom of the screen. If you like, you can even use Alexa to buy things from Amazon just as you can with an Echo. You can need a spoken password to avoid others from collation stuff.
