    It stinks. I was so excited to get the so called new and improved Kindle. I’ve used them the years but this One is terrible. It won’t run any music apps if you want to play a game. The app Store no longer has Book Funnel nor does it support Mobi downloads anymore so all of those books I had are just gone. You actually get a pop-up telling you to to repurchase the books from Amazon. Sorry, some they don’t have so you’re screwed either way. I guess all you’re supposed to do with it is watch movies or Zoom. Or i guess you can so Alexa to set a timer for you. Just glad I didn’t send my old one back for a trade in.

    This is my third Kindle Fire device. I had the HDX for years then gifted it to my son. I then ordered the 8 Plus most recently and have generally enjoyed it. However, as someone that has a giant phone with me, I came to realize that the screen just wasn’t big enough to justify using it regularly. Enter the new HD 10 Plus with its larger screen. My assumption was that, for the most part, this would basically be a larger version the 8. Generally, my assumption was correct but Amazon did a very nice job of tweaking some areas that desperately needed it. I will detail some of those tweaks here but, at its core, this tablet is still very much just a very reasonably priced entertainment device. I think some folks misunderstand the intent from Amazon here. The Fire line up is designed to meet the demands of most tablet owner’s needs; streaming music, streaming Prime Video / Hulu / Netflix, handling emails, general web browsing and more. I know, Amazon is offering a “productivity bundle” here and it is nice to see Amazon trying to make these more flexible but, make no mistake, there is a reason that companies like Apple and Samsung charge so much more for their devices. However, if you aren’t expecting an iPad like experience, I think most folks should be genuinely happy with the HD 10 Plus. It does an awful lot incredibly well! Here is the breakdown:

    -The Screen: One of my biggest complaints about the Fire 8 Plus was the screen. It felt dull and lifeless to me. Functional and fine for a movie or bopping around online indoors but not a vibrant experience. Part of the issue is, so many of us have phones with these crazy perfect panels on them now. HD+, FHD+, WQHD+, and more! Plus, some of have adaptive refresh rates. I mean these screens are amazing today! These phones often cost over $1,000. So, for devices that retail at less than $250, it would not be fair to expect that level of screen quality. That being said, Amazon has definitely improved things here. We get 1080p HD and the screen does not feel as laggy or slow to me. Further, it is noticeably brighter to my eyes which was probably my single biggest complaint about the 8. You will not want to try and stream a show on a bright day on the beach, but it just looks and performs better overall. Combined now with the bigger screen size and I think this panel might actually be a strength of the new 10. Well done!

    -Form Factor: I loved the Fire 8 Plus with one big nitpick: GIGANTIC bezels! This 10 still has big ones but they feel so much smaller to me. Good stuff. The device feels good in the hand. Solid! Amazon claims a twelve-hour battery. I am seeing at least that. This thing is a beast with battery life!! Charging is handled via USBC or wireless. There is an included 9W brick but make sure to find a 15W brick as that is this tablet’s max charging capability. You will see much faster speeds. I have not had to recharge yet but figure around three hours. As with the last gen 8 Plus the wireless charging was a great inclusion at this price Amazon! With 4GB of RAM and a slightly upgraded RealTek processor, I was expecting this to be faster and smoother. Frankly, I am just not sure. Maybe a little bit. It handles everything I have thrown at it. It is a marginal improvement over the last 8 Plus in this regard. If you were hoping for huge speed and performance upgrades over the 8 Plus, do not bother here. It is smoother but it is somewhat negligible. Amazon is claiming almost 2x the durability in drop testing over the latest iPad 10.2 with significantly strengthened glass. Time will tell on that, but this is good news. Additionally, like the 8 Plus, this can be dropped in Amazon’s $50 wireless dock and it will basically become an Echo Show. Pretty slick! I opted for the 64GB model (there is also 32GB) but you can add up to 1TB via expandable memory. Unlike many others, Amazon still supports a good old-fashioned 3.5mm stereo jack. There is a 2MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear camera that shoots up to 720p video. If you have a smartphone built in the last 4 years, you will want to skip anything but, perhaps, a Zoom meeting. The cameras produce below average images by today’s standards. This is an okay place to make a save in my opinion. The speakers here are improved over the 8 Plus but are still just average.

    -Connectivity: You get 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz WiFi here for networking and Bluetooth 5.0 LE. In my experience so far, I have had very stable WiFi connection to my home network with solid range. Additionally, as I would expect with this version of Bluetooth, my connection to my ear buds has been strong and can get 50’ plus of range.

    -Other Important Thoughts: I cannot find any codec support from either Amazon or Realtek. I did not anticipate that here. Despite that, I see very little latency when streaming video. Know though that, when streaming music services, do not bother with cranking up the stream quality. This device will not handle anything but fairly compressed audio. Fine in a pinch but an iPhone with AAC or an Android with AptX (at a minimum) will sound better. Amazon does let you go to split screen here to take advantage of the bigger real estate. I do not anticipate using it but you could watch a video on Netflix and answer emails at the same time. Might be handy to some. You will hear grumbling about the Amazon app store in some of the reviews. It happens every time they release a new device. As a long time Fire tablet and Android user, I will say that I have never understood Amazon’s decision here. Just so much work for a substandard result! That said, I doubt too many of you will find many apps missing. Amazon has given us access to all the big-name apps here. There might be some niche missing stuff but 98% of consumers will likely be pleased here. If you are wondering whether to pay for ad removal or not, I always go for the ads. Only on my reading Kindle’s have I paid to remove them. It is not expensive to remove them, but they are only on the lock screen. I swipe the screen and they disappear. Inconsequential to me but, if they bother you, you can pay any time (even after purchase) to remove them so, if you are a first time Fire buyer, I recommend taking the save initially to see how you feel about them. Also, plan on buying the Amazon brand case. It has a premium feel and protects the tablet nicely. It also offers a unique approach to standing the device both in portrait and landscape modes. Well done.

    So, I need to spend more time here and will update as I go but, given the similarities to the 8 Plus, I am confident in my early recommendation. In comparison, I just cannot tell you guys what a difference the size difference makes. Between the smaller bezels and the increased screen size, this feels like a completely different device. The bigger brighter screen just makes consuming all forms of media a much better experience. I did not opt for the “Productivity Package” because, candidly, I just cannot see using this device for work stuff. The point of Fire devices, at least for me, is to just have an inexpensive entertainment machine. Again, I hate to dismiss the idea without trying it but I just do not think a RealTek processor is capable of creating a really robust experience for work and it doesn’t matter how many free Microsoft apps you get thrown into the deal. At just over $200, I am perfectly fine with this. I embrace what Amazon has created here. One other important note: If you have an old Fire device, like the HDX lying around, Amazon gives you 20% off here and $15 for the device, assuming it is still operational. That was a $60 savings for me which is much more than the device was worth. The HD 10 Plus is a well-made high value device that makes entertainment on the fly easy. Whether you want to watch something on Amazon or HBO, do some gaming, fire off some emails, or just surf around the net, this 10.1” Fire tablet will put a smile on your face. I will update this review as I go here but, at least for me, this is an easy recommendation. Nice work to the Amazon team here yet again!

    *Update* So it has been over a week and I am more pleased than I was initially. This is exactly what I wanted. The screen is really good. I no longer miss my S21 Ultra when watching video during my elliptical sessions. It is also snappier than I thought initially. Moving around the tablet and interacting with various apps feels more responsive than the last 8 to me for sure. Amazon does include the AAC codec here so Apple users will have optimized audio when listening to music. I finally found that information. All and all, for the price, I continue to be amazed. Will update further but buy with complete confidence.

    I was excited to get my new Fire10 as I had put off purchasing a new one for a year waiting for an updated version to come out. The box my Fire arrived in was crushed and even the plastic bubble protector had been popped. The Kindle appeared undamaged when I initially inspected it, but, when I started it up, there were mid-sized light spots on the screen clearly caused by crushing. I’m leaving for a trip next week, and all I wanted was an exchange. I called up CS and was helped by, I believe, an Indian call center. Forty eight minutes and two operators later, they couldn’t help me and told me they could not ship another one. I tried to get a US call center, but they told me I would need to call back the next day. I called the US call center the next day and I was told they would try to help me. They put me on hold and 20 minutes and then disconnected me. No call back, no attempt to contact me to resolve the issue. I am a long-time customer of Amazon products and services and have had past issues resolved quickly and satisfactorily. The worst part is that the Kindle exists purely as a vehicle to push Amazon products and services, so you would think they would be eager to get another one into my hands as quickly as possible. Service for this issue has been utter garbage. I will be looking to replace Amazon products and services as much as possible in the future from competitors like Apple, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Google, Vudu, and Netflix. I’m really, really disappointed in Amazon.
