The "1-Minute" Review
The Amazon Fire HD 10 (2021) refreshes Amazon’s largest tablet model. It offers a lot of the same things other Fire tablets have with a few minor adjustments. It releases alongside the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) and is a very similar device.
What’s the Same
- 10.1-inch display
- 32 or 64GB storage with the option for MicroSD expansion
- Soft-touch plastic chassis
- More color options available for the Fire HD 10
- Does not support wireless charging
- Screen protector and case bundled.
- 3GB of RAM versus the Plus’ 4GB
While the Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) has a couple of additional features going for it, the Amazon Fire HD 10 still has a lot to offer for a budget tablet. The screen is about 10% brighter than that of the older Fire models and has an improved feel with the soft-touch plastic back. The Amazon Fire HD 10 also comes in a range of color options that the Fire HD 10 Plus (2021) does not such as black, denim, lavender and olive.
PC Magazine says, “Amazon updates the Fire HD 10 to deliver a very good tablet for $150, as long as what you want to do is control Alexa and consume Amazon books and media. Even without the Google Play store, it's the best tablet you can get for less”
Wired states, “It's still crazy cheap. It’s the easiest way to consume all things Amazon. A productivity bundle makes real work possible, depending on your line of work. Battery life is comparable to any other tablet. MicroSD slot for extra storage.”
