Build and Design

Released on April 27th 2021, the tablet measures 247 x 166 x 9.2 mm and weighs about 465-504g (the variance is due to the manufacturing process and configurations. It is reasonably light to carry around, and the thickness is reasonable for such a large tablet. However, its thickness cannot be compared to other tablets, such as the Google pixel tablet measure (8.1mm), Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (5.5mm), or Oppo Pad Air (6.9mm). Amazon Fire HD 10 is available in Black, Denim, Olive and Lavender.


Amazon Fire HD 10 features a brilliant 10.1” 1080p display, boasting 1920 x 1200p (224 ppi), for bright, vivid image quality. The screen is strengthened with aluminosilicate glass.

Fire HD 10 is our most prominent display in 1080p full HD—now 30% faster thanks to the powerful new 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. Stream movies, watch videos, or play games with the enhanced Wi-Fi. Enjoy downloaded content on the go with up to 12 hours of mixed-use battery life.

Camera Set Up

It packs a single, front-facing 2MP Camera capable of recording 720p videos. This is entirely below average, hence unreliable for quality pictures and videos. However, video chats and selfies could still be helpful if you have to take some.

The primary camera at the rear of the tablet is equally disappointing. 5 MP rear-facing cameras with 720p HD video recording is quite downbeat. Nevertheless, it gets the job done. Cameras for pictures and video recording are not the greatest features of the Amazon Fire HD 10.

Amazon Tablet Performance

Processor and Memory

The Amazon Fire HD 10 runs on Android 9.0 Pie and Fire OS 7. The 11th generation tablet, released in 2021, is powered by:

  • A Mediatek MT8183 Helio P60T (12 nm) chipset
  • Octa-core (4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU
  • Mali-G72 MP3 GPU.

It relies on Octa-core 2.0 GHz with 3 GB RAM, 32GB internal / 3GB RAM, and 64GB 3GB for optimal functioning. The microSDXC (dedicated slot) is handy for additional memory (up to 1TB). Some apps may require that they be installed on internal storage. App or feature updates may impact available storage.

Amazon Fire HD 10 is equipped to handle tasks, including multitasking and playing low to mid-setting games. However, the OS is a bit of a letdown, especially considering the many updates and newly developed Android Apps available in Android 13 that are conspicuously missing in Android 9.0 Pie.
