The Amazon Fire 10 HD is a new thing that this biggest online market trying to offer to its consumers. Amazon is trying to sell what they said as the tablet which is fully designed for kids. The device offers pretty much similar specification like its base model, but now fully featured alongside with brand new software and fully protected case for preventing some accidents to happen. Taking a look at it closely, then you won’t find any difference at all except for the rubberized case surrounded its case. They have sold this system for couple of years and people will really like it.
This time around, they improve the hardware configuration inside while keeping the design is remaining similar. The processor featured inside is more powerful and should take games that cannot be run before like PUBG Mobile or Lineage. The specification is probably the biggest selling to expect here, so better to think about for getting it again if you look for something more. Let’s take a look inside at it further and see how it works on us. That is what we are going to talk about on this article. Without further ado, let’s we jump into the article.
Case and Looks
One thing that makes the Fire 10 appeared to be completely different is located on the bumper case surrounded its corner. This thing looks plain without anything to expect, but it looks pretty solid and should handle bumps and drops more than once. I can say that kids won’t think much about design, so as long as the software works wonderfully, they won’t make any complaint. The bumper case is available in couple variants included the red, blue, or even pink one. I suggest you to talk to your children to pick what kind of variant they want because removing the case is quite hard. They won’t be able to remove it easily because that is what we always hope for.
In term of build quality, I have tried to drop it from my dining table and it looks fine. The case will hold all the pressure when it’s dropped, but I want to remain you the front glass is not fully protected by Gorilla Glass like in Samsung Galaxy and even if it does, I really recommend you to give it a tempered or soft glass. The features you are going to find here is pretty similar, you have of micro SD slot, micro USB, and a headphone jack for connecting the headphone. There is just nothing special about the feature here.back to menu ↑
Amazon does not think the rubber case itself won’t help the tablet sold that much and for this case they decide to completely redone the user interface from the Fire OS to make it more kids friendly. The result is something they should proud here because navigating around is as simple as you do in Android TV. There are going to be some big icons which show of games, books, or their favorite apps. They bundle it with some sort of unlimited online service for getting books, videos, and games for free here although its only limited to one year and it costs for around 2 dollars per month if you want to continue the subscription.
Even with its friendly user interface, they will still find some videos and games are not appropriate based on their age level. For this case, there is a feature called as Control Centre which lets you to adjust or filtering what kind of contents they manage to access. Three different users profile are included here. The Child and Teen modes will give them a limited access to the content based on its age level, while the Adult mode is a basically a free mode for accessing everything in instant.

Performance and Battery
The Fire 10’s performance should offer you more than just for browsing or streaming movies because the processor featured inside is quite powerful. The Mediatek MT8173 processor features of quad core CPU with two clusters configuration. There are two Cortex A53 CPU work as the power saving mode for light activities like browsing while keeping the other two dual core Cortex A72 CPU for demanding task like gaming. I have tried to run demanding game like PUBG as the test and it runs pretty great in my opinion. For under 200 dollars, I guess they already put of decent hardware as return.
As for the battery life, I guess the battery result is hardly to reach for what Amazon promises to us. They said the device will easily last for 10 hours, but for most all of time I always get for around 6 to 7 hours in full usage. Even using it for browsing won’t really give you of 10 straight hours of battery. Reducing the brightness is a good idea and I suggest you to turn off the adaptive brightness feature because it takes a lot of battery because the screen always need to adjust the right brightness every time you move around.back to menu ↑
I have to say that the Fire 10 HD is considered as a good tablet to play with even for adults. It’s packed with nice hardware and fully supported by perfect software for kids environment. They add of a brilliant idea for making everything in kids friendly although they basically sell the same device, but with difference treatment. I know that not all parents want to spend more than 450 dollars for getting an iPad and this can be a good alternative for you. The choice is yours, so feel free to take any consideration about it.
