The Prime membership isn't mandatory, but it unlocks an extra level of value for the inexpensive tablet.
The entire Amazon Fire tablet lineup boasts the same Prime benefits, and the range of models vary in size and price, Starting at $230 (Â£170 or AU$215, if converted), the Fire HD 10 is the biggest Amazon tablet available, and it's essentially a super-size version of the Fire HD 8 , However in this case, bigger doesn't necessarily mean better; their identical screen resolution looks fine on the 8-inch model, yet on the 10-incher frÄ“ protective case for apple iphone 5, 5s and se - gray, grind grey it looks stretched out, The smaller Fire HD will only cost you $150, and if you're really trying to spend as little as possible, the 7-inch Fire tablet costs a mere $50, To be sure, the Fire tablet feels as cheap as it costs, yet -- like the Fire HD 10 -- it's one of the best deals around for a tablet its size, You can't download apps from the Google Play Store; instead you have access to Amazon's curated app store, It still has a good number of apps available, including free ones courtesy of the new Amazon Underground feature, just not as many as Google's, Due to its big low-resolution screen, the Amazon Fire HD 10 isn't as impressive as the 8-inch model (which packs more pixels into its smaller screen), but it still has a lot of good going for it..
Editors' note: The Amazon Fire HD 8 is an almost identical version of the Fire HD 10 (reviewed here). Portions of their reviews are similar. Editors' note, October 15, 2015 : The review has been edited to clarify that Amazon Underground is available to all Amazon users. The Fire HD 10 is Amazon's biggest tablet ever. It looks just like the 8-inch model, just larger. Unlike the Fire HD 8, the 10-inch version comes only in black or white color options. The tablet brandishes a plastic body with a polished sheen. The smooth and glossy back attracts fingerprints and smudges easily, though the finish feels comfortable when holding it. The slick plastic back can feel slippery if it's not gripped securely.
In landscape orientation, the right edge of the tablet is home to the frÄ“ protective case for apple iphone 5, 5s and se - gray, grind grey power button, volume rocker, Micro-USB port and headphone jack, The expandable microSD card slot is located on the right, while the speakers are inconspicuously located on the bottom edge, The Fire HD 10 is far from the thin and lightweight design of the Amazon Fire HDX 8.9, Contrary to the Fire HD tablets, the high-end 8.9-inch Fire HDX tablet is a performance powerhouse with a supremely skinny and sleek aesthetic, The Fire HDX 8.9 also costs almost twice as much as the Fire HD 10, This goes to show that design is often a compromise when manufacturers are trying to meet a low price point, That said, the Fire HD 10's dimensions are in the wheelhouse of comparable tablets in the same price range..
The glossy plastic design of the Fire HD 10 evokes a toy-like impression that's part fun and part chintzy. The polished aesthetic doesn't really feel high-end or premium. At its low price, the Fisher-Price vibe is no surprise. In some way, the flagrantly plastic construction is refreshingly unpretentious. To be sure, the design is one of its weakest aspects, but considering it's a tablet meant for entertainment rather than productivity, the playful aesthetic all kind of makes sense in a way. The new Fire HD tablets debut Amazon's latest Android-based operating system, Fire OS 5 Bellini. The updated user interface has a fresh design that's easy to navigate and new features to enhance watching video, gaming and reading. Though it runs a modified version of the Google OS, you don't get the full breadth of Android apps available in the Google Play store. Instead, you have the Amazon App store, which is highly curated and somewhat limited in its selection. It's a downside to the Amazon OS, but if you don't care for downloading many apps, it's not a big deal.
