What people are saying
The tablet has earned a 4.3-star rating based on more than 3,000 customer reviews. Shoppers have called the latest iteration of the Fire HD tablet a "fantastic tablet" with "wonderful picture quality" to stream your favourite movies, shows and more.
"Great for the price," one shopper wrote, adding that you "couldn't ask for more" from a budget-friendly tablet that delivers up to six hours of streaming on one battery charge.
Other shoppers noted that it was easy to download their favourite streaming services like Netflix and Disney+ as well as apps and games.
"Really responsive and slim," one shopper said of the sleek and lightweight design. "For the price you can't beat this!"
Although there are plenty of positives for anyone seeking to achieve the basics, there are some things to consider.
Firstly, one complaint among reviewers is the camera quality; shoppers have said that if you're looking to take pictures with your tablet, this might not be the model for you. Another complaint was the length of the charging cord and some frustrations that not all apps were available to download on the tablet (may vary by country). While most major streaming and social media platforms can be downloaded, some shoppers have complained that more niche apps or regional banking apps can't be accessed.
Amazon's Fire HD 10 Tablet is an affordable option for anyone looking to watch their favourite shows, listen to music and access social media without the bells and whistles of pricer units. If you're looking for a tablet to gift for a young student, to bring on your commute or next vacation or gift to someone who might not be confident with technology, this might be the unit for you.
However, if you're looking to take photos, use your tablet for note taking or for business purposes, it might be worth your while to invest in something more comprehensive.
