A great mid level tablet, but…
Reviewed in Canada on June 18, 2021
Look here’s the deal.. I’ve gone through IPads, cheap Chinese Android tablets, and now this Amazon Fire HD 10 64GB model. I’ve been through them all, all of my IPads are outdated and getting old. I also don’t feel like spending a $1000 bucks for a new iPad. So, not long ago I picked up a fire stick for my mother and was pretty impressed with the stick, so I decided to pick up this tablet. Because I got used to the Firestick, I felt right at home with the tablet given the Amazon ecosystem.
I now have everything in this, including the Google play store, as well as Kodi, and many other APK programs as well that allow me to watch many great tv shows and movies. The picture quality is exceptional, the sound is terrific, and the battery is not half bad, I wish it could last just a tad longer, but I’m nitpicking. The only thing I need for it now is a case, and then I should be good for quite a while.
This is what I’ll say for others sitting in the fence. If you’re an Apple user you probably won’t like this ecosystem, however, if you have the ability and know how to install or side load apps, you’ll appreciate what this tablet has to offer, and it gives you more options than Apple IPads due to their closed operating system. I can also install an additional memory card in this tablet for memory beyond the 64GB’s if I ever want to. This tablet is capable of running the Google play store and any of the apps that you can get on there also, in the end this is running on an Android 9.0 Pie operating system, so it is android friendly.
I think where people start to get disappointed is if they don’t understand how to side load apps or tinker with the tablet to customize it to their needs and wants. However, this is nothing a few YouTube videos can’t teach you, it’s not hard at all. I legit did my research before buying this tablet and it scored higher than Lenovo and many other cheaper and slightly more expensive tablet competitors.
It’s a mid range tablet that to me gives you a serious bang for your buck. Also, keep in mind here too that you also have the option to do a payment plan, which is pretty much unheard of this day and age. So I paid $70 bucks on delivery and for the next 5 months I pay 48 bucks, that’s pretty cheap and basically monthly coffee money.
Also, for parents reading this review, this is an excellent option for children and offers a safety parental mode for kids so they don’t get into any bad stuff. I’d strongly suggest getting the 64GB model so that you will be less handcuffed in regards to what you want to do with this tablet.
With Apples skyrocketing prices and our economy in the crapper, this is a financially healthy substitute for some really cool entertainment as a tablet.
P.S the photo I added to my comment shows the size of this thing, it’s night and day bigger than the others. I’ve read the negative reviews and the really bad ones are clearly from people expecting $1000 dollar high level tablet specs for $200 bucks, it’s just not going to ever happen and you can never please those people. It’s a great bang for your buck tablet.
