    Great replacement for an iPad!

    I do love the Fire HD 10, although that wasn't the case when I first received it (change pains). I bought the Fire to replace a damaged android tablet and an older iPad mini I can no longer update. For the most part, the change from an android tablet to the Fire has been pretty seamless. The major issue at first was caused by an agent at Best Buy. I was advised by the agent in store that you could use the Google store to get apps. That's not entirely true. The Amazon app store is the main one installed. The Amazon apps store is a bit limited when compared to the Google store, or Apple store, but for the most part, the major apps are there. I was able to go online and find a fix for the Fire that now allows me to have the Google store installed and running (without violating the warranty by rooting the device). So now I can get any app not available in the Amazon app store from the Google store. The only other issues I have with the Fire are this, the Fire doesn't allow me to change the lock screen and when unlocking the device, I get ads from the Amazon store. They aren't a big deal and do not pop up in front of anything, but I just feel I would rather have an image I prefer for my lock screen and not an Amazon ad. The second thing is how to unlock or wake up the Fire. My old tablet allowed me to tap the screen and it would wake. On the Fire, you have to press the power button on top to wake up the tablet. This is not a big issue, and similar to having to press the home button on an iPad. I was used to tapping the screen on my old tablet, and I still find myself doing so to wake up the Fire. I'm sure I'll stop soon. The last little issue I have are the home screen icons. You can rearrange them and group them, but you can't move them to a second screen unless the first screen of apps is full. The Home screen apps auto-arrange but the Fire will not allow you to move an app icon to the second screen. It's a little frustrating for me because I lose some customization. Again this is not a deal breaker, but hopefully something that Amazon will change with a future update to the software. Other than my minor issues, the Fire is fabulous! The sound when listening to music and watching movies sounds great. The Full HD picture is crisp, clear, and I find there to be limited glare. Downloading movies is a breeze, and I was able to link my Movies Anywhere account to my Amazon account, so all of my digital movies are available through Amazon too. The cameras are amazing and the Kindle Fire takes fabulous pictures and video. Now the best part...price! The Kindle Fire HD, with 64GB of memory was just under half the price of an iPad mini 4. I purchased an extra 64 GB micro card to expand the memory (something to my knowledge you can't do with an iPad) and I have the same amount of memory space as an iPad mini 4 for about half the price. If you want to match the screen size of the Fire, you'd have to get an iPad pro 10.5 inch and that costs $600! (Three times the price of the Fire). I would strongly recommend the FIRE HD 10 to anyone looking for a new tablet. Have fun!

    Awesome Tablet for the Price

    Technically, this is an awesome tablet on its own. The Full HD screen is sharp and crisp. Love the extra wide screen as it's perfect for watching movies (on Prime and Netflix). It's plenty fast. And I paid more for the 64-GB version. And there's still an SD slot to future proof it. They say you get what you paid for, but I got a lot more back than what I paid for. Only concern was that Kindle Fires have bad reputation with the charging port going bad as it gets worn out with time and usage. I ordered a NetDot (generation 10) so that I can magnetically charge and disconnect. This saves on the physical wear and tear of the port. I upgraded from a Samsung Note 10 tablet and I'm very happy.

    More than just a reader

    I got this for my mother. She used to have a Kindle that I had gotten her for Christmas about 4 years ago but it had frozen up and there seemed to be no fix. The Fire was to be a replacement for the reader but it does so much more than the Kindle. It does books, of course, but it also allows Mom to read her periodicals, as well. She now watches movies in bed with her head set so as to not disturb others. It has a good battery life. She used it to watch movies and read her books while we flew from SC to CA and then for the trip back. She said that, over a week, she never recharged it.

    I had a Tab A with 32g and had a hard time managing the space I had on the device even with a sd card. The FireHd was on sale with 64g so I took a gamble and bought it. I am very pleased. The Kindle manages the memory for you and freed up space if you add a sd card. I was also able to add Google Play to it every easily. There are some apps that are in one store and not other. The build is not as refineded as the Tab A, but with a folio case it is not even noticeable. The screen is very vivid and very responsive. I use a Bamboo stylus and it works very well.

    Amazon Fire Tablet HD 10 has become my choice for reading emails, performing internet searches, organizing informational pdfs, and creating workbooks for projects, etc. I was looking for a new computer when I decided to purchase the tablet instead. Opted for 64GB. Great for reading eBooks and magazines and streams with excellent HD. The portability is key. No more moving the laptop to other rooms. Tablet is excellent outside on the patio. Purchased during Black Friday sale at an excellent price as well. I even use it to schedule and make changes to my TIVO.

    Love it! Great battery life. Much better battery life than my older kindle. My only complaint is that when I'm using the text to speech function while reading a book it completely stops frequently. Not only does it stop reading, but it backs out of the book as well. Very frustrating when my hands are wet because I am washing dishes! I use this function while doing house work so this glitch is quite bothersome.

    We bought this tablet for my husband, who is a self-admitted technophobe. He is enjoying it immensely, has downloaded a number of games and books, loves the color, has had no problems or glitches with software. His only complaints have to do with learning how to perform new functions on it, and that's his problem, not the tablet's. We've only had it for a couple months, so I can't speak to longevity or durability, but so far so good!

    I purchased the Fire tablet to replace a second generation iPad mini. While it seems that there are fewer apps availkable for the Fire, truth be told I mostly used the iPad to do quick internet searches, play music and movies (and the rare game) and as a reader. The Fire does all of this, and since I am a Prime member, it's pretty convenient. And at less than half the price of a new iPad.

    This is a great tablet for the price. My only complaint is the keyboard. The keys are a bit too far apart so I keep hitting the wrong one and misspelling a lot of words. The send button is right below the delete button which causes me to send text that I was trying to correct using the delete button. This is very frustrating. No more on screen help like in the previous fire.

    I like the screen size but the new specs still are not enough to do anything other than basic email and web surfing. The tablet still takes more time than my Galaxy S8 to download, view, and watch or read magazines and video from Amazon Prime. However, being that it is an amazon device, it does seem that it is optimized better for playing amazon music and using their shopping app. All in all, you get what you pay for.

    I prefer non-apple tablets and phones because of the cost. This is my third fire tablet and I really like them. This one has the biggest screen yet and I am enjoying that. The only thing I don't like is the inability to use the Google play store to download aps. But I use the tablet all the time and will stick with it.

    Unlike Apple products, the memory upgrade for the Fire 10 is not overpriced. But then unless you are going to store lots of media, you might not need the extra storage space. If not, for the price, might be better to get the 32gb version and upgrade in a year. Still will spend less doing that than on a single iPad.

    Excellent tablet for the price ... on sale. Alexa communication. 10" screen a plus as well as a decent processor. Bought 4, & 2 we're 8", great & gifted. One may or may not agree with Amazon monopolizing your screen & trying to sell you something. For the cost it is quite a competitive tablet. Gets the job done.

    The only feature I overlooked that the tablet lacked was the ability to mirror on a larger screen. My older Kindle Fire could mirror to the TV. But, my new one does not. Love the storage capacity and the screen resolution. Processor strikes me a bit on the slow slide. I mainly got the tablet because of my video library with Amazon.

    For the price, I got a very nice tablet! I can do about everything I could do on a more expensive one.. It doesn't support Google, but that's an easy fix, with how-to videos on YouTube. I was very surprised at how fast Best Buy shipped it and the FAST DELIVERY! You won't be disappointed.

    I had to buy this one because I wrecked my 2nd one trying to replace the battery as it was running slow and cutting out. I'm glad I changed. This new Fire is wonderful. Never cuts out, signal is very steady. Lots of new features, too

    I purchased this Fire Tablet as a birthday gift for my niece. It was everything she needed and much more than she expected. Email, online shopping etc. But also watching movies and YouTube. She is so happy and so am I, I cannot think of a gift that would have suited her better. Thank You
