    A Fantastic Media Consumption Device, October 13, 2017

    By  benjamin bannister (New York, NY) –

    Verified Purchase( What’s this?)

    This review is from: All-New Fire HD 10 Tablet with Alexa Hands-Free, 10.1″ 1080p Full HD Display, 32 GB, Black – with Special Offers (Electronics)

    If you’re looking for a great do-it-all tablet, and, you use Amazon’s services, this is a fantastic media-consumption tablet for you.

    I see this tablet made for two demographics: a beginner tablet for young kids (if they break it, it won’t break the bank), and as an affordable iPad equivalent/backup Kindle.

    To start, this is an Amazon tablet made to do Amazon things. Since I use Amazon’s Audible, listen to Amazon Music, watch Video, read their Kindle books, and shop on Amazon, this device is *perfect* for me. All the digital content that you own or subscribe to can be streamed or stored on this HD 10.

    — SCREEN —
    Let’s talk about the biggest feature to arrive: a 1080p HD screen! This used to be on the HDX models, but that came with a hefty price. Now, we have a low-cost 1080p device and can watch movies at full HD resolution.

    Pixels per inch has increased which means everything looks sharper. PPI helps while reading as you are less likely to zoom in on photos or text in magazines and PDFs.

    Also, color saturation is bolder. Reds are distinctly redder, along with all the other colors [see photos].

    1080p resolution was the only thing stopping this tablet from being truly must-have, and now it’s here!

    Not going to lie, the jump from 8” to 10” is pretty huge. 8” was big enough to still be compact; the same can’t be said of the 10″.

    This device is now the same size (but wider) as a regular iPad [see photos]. In fact, if you’re watching movies, it’s slightly larger because of the widescreen shape versus the iPad’s squarish shape.

    I have a Kindle Paperwhite. With this tablet, I now have a backup Kindle that I can put all my books on and switch between the two. Granted, it’s not the same reading experience, but it’s more than fine as a backup device, and it helps divide the lifespan of both devices.

    Reading magazines and comics is much more enjoyable because of the large size and color screen. Plus, this is faster than a Kindle at page turning. Adding books is as easy as on a regular Kindle: connect it to a computer, and transfer your files into the Kindle folder. Done.

    — APPS —
    There are very few apps that I was interested in their store. I got the usual: Netflix and Plex to watch my other content (No Vudu, yet). There are lots of free (in-app) games, with the occasional free gem. Don’t expect many productivity apps; emphasis is placed on games. However…

    As soon as you get your tablet, immediately download the ‘ Movies Anywhere’ app on this and your other devices. Launched 10-11-2017, Movies Anywhere connects your Amazon + iTunes + Vudu + Google + Disney accounts together, and you can watch ALL your movies from one app! This is as close to world peace as we’re going to get! Now, it doesn’t really matter what device or service you use, if you buy a movie somewhere you can watch it anywhere! This is the deal sealer!

    It’s an Android-based OS. I think that says enough. If you’ve used an Android, you’ve used them all. The interface and usability are perfectly serviceable. It’s definitely not iOS.

    — STORAGE —
    You can download content to the device for offline viewing. If you intend on storing your media, storage is upgradeable up to 256GB with a microSD card. I think having this option is great and lets you decide how much storage you want to spend separately.

    I have the 32GB version. I’ve downloaded some audiobooks and apps, and have yet to fill that up since I stream most of my content.

    *** TIP *** Use the tablet for a while before deciding if you want/need a microSD card.

    — SOUND —
    Depending on the content, the Dolby sound coming out of the two speakers is sufficient for anything. Obviously, don’t expect a movie experience, but you will be able to listen to your music, your audiobooks, and your Netflix without issue.

    *** TIP *** Connect Bluetooth headphones/speakers or plug in headphones for louder and fuller sound.

    — BATTERY —
    The battery on this is pretty darn good. It has about 3-5 days of standby between charges, depending on how you use it. If you were to use it non-stop, you get about ten hours of use. Charge time is about five hours, so best leave that done overnight.

    — BUILD —
    The plastic back shell feels tough and durable enough that I am not protecting it with a case. However, I did buy a plastic screen protector, as one should for any screen.

    — SUMMARY —
    This is a decent deal for the Fire HD 10. If you wait for one of their tablet sales, then it’ll definitely be worth it…

    Excellent unit, October 14, 2017

    This review is from: All-New Fire HD 10 Tablet with Alexa Hands-Free, 10.1″ 1080p Full HD Display, 64 GB, Black (Electronics)

    I upgraded from a generation 5 with ads to this generation 7 without ads and am giving the 5 to my grandson. Since the price difference between a 128gb SD and a 256gb SD is about $100, I went with the 128. I use this away from home since it is a lot smaller and lighter than my laptops. This is a lot better than using your cell phone
    1. The customer service both phone and chat is outstanding.
    2. The Alexa set up is better than it is on the Generation 5.
    3. I would suggest that you go to “Settings” and the “Help”. An excellent manual is available in “Help”.
    4. If you are new to the Fire HD 10, Take your time picking out your aps and delete the one that didn’t work out the way you want.
    5. The screen size is fine and very clear.
    6. If you have Alexa play music while you work on something on the Fire, you will find that the battery charge will drop faster.
    For you senior citizens, I am 83 years old and have no trouble using this unit.

    Disappointing for HDX owners, but …, October 16, 2017

    By  dd (Berkeley, Ca USA) –

    Verified Purchase( What’s this?)

    This review is from: All-New Fire HD 10 Tablet with Alexa Hands-Free, 10.1″ 1080p Full HD Display, 32 GB, Black (Electronics)

    This review is for the 64GB, no special offers version of the tablet, regardless of how Amazon shows it. Kept trying to get the right version to show but finally gave up.


    I own 4 Fire tablets: the original 7″, the 2012 8.9″, the 2013 7″ HDX and the 2014 8.9″ HDX. In other words, I was buying a new Fire tablet every year. Then Amazon decided to concentrate on the low end of the market. My HDX tablets are 3 & 4 years old. Since I use the 8.9″ daily, the battery has almost completely lost its ability to hold a charge (I can get maybe 2 hours if I limit myself to reading, browsing and Twitter). So, needless to say, like many other HDX owners, I’ve been waiting for an upgrade. I bought the 64GB no-special-offers model because Amazon gave me no other choice (it doesn’t sell refurbished HDX tablets and has no facility for replacing the battery in those older models).


    If you’ve owned only one of Amazon’s low-end Fires of the past several years, I think you will be impressed by the quality of this new model. If you’re an HDX lover, you’ll probably have very mixed feelings. It’s faster and more responsive, but the screen resolution is inferior.


    It’s a bit hard to believe what a difference 1+” and about 4.5 ounces can make in a tablet. The 7″ models fit quite nicely in small messenger bags; the 8.9″ won’t add much weight to a backpack or briefcase. But the 10-inch model is big, too big and heavy for me to hold comfortably in my hands, too large for a messenger bag, too weighty an addition to a backpack.

    Caveat: I’m on the short side with correspondingly smallish hands, so if you’re on the tallish side, the 10″ model may not be a problem for you. (Note: the HD 10 is the same width as the HDX, but it is taller and heavier.)

    Amazon’s cover is almost useless as a stand for the HD, unless you’re putting it on a solid surface. With a stand, the tablet’s good for watching videos because, of course, the more real estate the better.


    The 1080P Full HD, 1920 x1200 display is, without question, the major improvement over Amazon’s previous low-end Fires. So, as I indicated above, if you’re “moving up”, you will be pleased. For we HDX owners, the 1080P matches the video quality, but the resolution is still lower than the 2560 x 1600 we are used to. And it is noticeable.


    The cameras aren’t great but, honestly, who depends on tablets for taking pictures? As for the sound? I’m not an audiophile so don’t feel qualified to judge. If I’m listening to music where sound quality matters, I use headphones or a Bluetooth speaker. For the many podcasts I listen to, the speakers are just fine.


    The operating system (5.5.x) is only slightly different than what we’ve had since the 2014 HDX (whose OS was just updated). For me, it has always been, in some key usability areas, less friendly than the 4.5.x OS on the 2013 HDX. There are rumors that Amazon is planning to push out a major revision later this year. If that happens, I will post an update to this review.

    Yes, for you Android lovers, it is not a true “Android” system, but if you have bought into the Amazon ecosystem, especially if you are a Prime Member, that shouldn’t bother you. As for the complaints from professional reviewers that the design of the OS is confusing, too focused on selling Amazon products? They baffle me. I paid the extra $15 to avoid special offers and turn off Amazon’s recommendations in the Settings. I have a number of complaints about the UI but what on earth is complex or confusing about the sections (For You, Books, Video, Games, etc.)?

    Special Note: every professional reviewer repeats endlessly that Amazon’s App Store is not as good as Google’s or Apple’s. True. The store has fewer apps. But in the years since Amazon launched its first Fire, I’ve managed to acquire over 200 apps and games, almost all for free. I pretty much have every app I want or need.

    It has always been possible to sideload apps (download an APK and install it) to the Fires. For the past year, it has also been possible to install Google’s Play Store, without rooting, on any Fire tablet running Fire OS 5 (which means any tablet going back to the 2014 models). Several web sites have instructions, either in text or video (I prefer the text) for downloading the components you need. I suspect Amazon won’t let me post a link, but if you search for “installing Google Play Store on Amazon Fire”, you will find several. Look them over, follow the steps in whichever source seems to make it easiest for you. It takes only a few moments and, so far, I’ve been able to install and use the few apps I want which are not available in Amazon’s store or do not work without Google’s Play services.
