Review of the Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet: It’s not an iPad killer, but there’s a lot to like at this ridiculous price.
AMAZON’S new Fire HD 10 Plus tablet is officially on sale, with major features for under £200, and it’s even cheaper right now as part of Prime Day. This website has put it to the test, and our entire evaluation can be found here.
If spending £500 on an iPad Air seems excessive, Amazon’s Fire tablet line is a popular alternative. These low-cost computers have been a tremendous hit for the online shop, and the company is now bringing out a new version of their small PCs. The Fire HD 10 Plus has recently gone on sale, and it boasts improved performance as well as a new design with a soft-touch slate-colored finish. With pricing starting at just £179.99 (right now it’s just £109 as part of Prime Day), it appears to be a good deal, but is it really worth your money, or should you save up a little more and purchase an iPad instead? This website has put it to the test, and our entire evaluation can be found here.
The Amazon 10 Plus tablet has a 10.1-inch screen, a faster processor, and more RAM. It can also be charged wirelessly and equipped with a keyboard for a laptop-like experience.
This new device looks a lot like an Amazon tablet right out of the box. Apart from the tactile soft-touch surface on the back case, everything else appears to be the same. As a result, you’ll still have some hefty bezels around the screen, which are starting to look a little worn out.
Of course, because this is a low-cost device, we should expect certain compromises, but the Fire HD 10 Plus is probably not for you if you want the best-looking tablet in town.
When you turn everything on for the first time, you’ll be bombarded with offers to join up for Amazon’s various subscription plans. Many of services, such as Prime Video, Amazon Music Unlimited, and Kindle Unlimited, offer enticing free trials, which are OK as long as you understand that you’ll be billed on a monthly basis once they expire.
Things are actually pretty remarkable once you get beyond the frequent pop-ups.
The 10.1-inch full HD screen is adequate for perusing the web and watching the occasional movie. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
