I used computers in all my life. I can't travel without computer. Now, I gave myself a project to hunt for "a light, at least 8-hours battery life between charges, 10" and above screen for my reading, of course WiFi and Bluetooth, reasonable click and response time, the purposes of the tablet mainly for email, browse Internet, a little bit document modification, my pictures viewing, and mp3 listening, mp4 viewing". That is all I need. This Amazon Fire HD 10 has 1.8GHz CPU with 32 GB memory (can add up to 128GB externally). It has everything of the above requirements after I added the Google Play Apps to it. I used it to connect to my iPhone 6 Plus thru the WiFi Personal Hot Spot to go online on the road and Google Map for me. Right now, I have everything that I am looking for from this tablet!
For general use and to pacify my kids this is a great tablet. I don't expect much from this tablet though. The ability to bring up netflix or play my burned movies form micro SD and to play some simple games for the kids is exactly what I was looking for. I will never use this tablet to crunch numbers, pull up spreadsheets, or anything else work related. But video calls with distant relatives and basic email functionality is all good with me.
MTK chip is OK (it is relatively powerful btw), but Android 5 and 2GB RAM is ridiculously stupid choice. Why Amazon simple cannot outsource it to company like Onda? V10 pro model is so much better than that crap and costs the same. This tablet is disgrace for the company and to the customers.

Harry, 20 Sep 2017This is pretty much old one in spec. Users for general purpose only not for high end users. High end users and tablets...hmmmmm
Horrible stuff sold to poor people to make more money. I will never ever use amazon s**t.
Slow, laggy, unresponsive, bad quality.
ProJames, 19 Sep 2017Ugh... MediaTekMediaTek is the only way where they can keep the Fire HD 10 prices low
if they used Snapdragon then the price would be somwhere around $299 - $332.13
This page says that the SoC is a MediaTek MT8173 with "2xARM Cortex-A72 (1.8 GHz), 2xARM Cortex-A53 (1.4 GHz)". Cool! Should be more than the 30% faster that they advertised... Also PowerVR GX6250 GPU.

aussie, 22 Sep 2017No chance to challenge ipad, from every aspect, at all.It's clearly not meant to compete with an iPad. The iPad is a Porsche where as this is a Corolla. I've got the hd8 with Google play side loaded and it's a great tablet for the money.
so the camera goes down in quality from a 5 mp to a 2mp the heck
