Premiere: Amazon brings the Fire HD 10 for the first time a 10-inch tablet in the wide 16: 10 format on the market. Is the 200 Euro tightly calculated Tablet a good choice?
Test Conclusion: You Need to Know
The comparatively favorable Fire HD 10 was reflected quite well: It works with an acceptable speed, the picture quality is quite okay in spite of low resolution and trimmed to Shopping operating system can be operated easily anyway. The memory is nearly 11.65 gigabytes, but can be extended. Schade: GPS for use as Navi missing.
Amazon makes pressure: From a small 6-inch version up to the large 10-inch model, the company founded by Jeff Bozos in 1994 now offers a wide range of Fire tablet PCs on. And that too tightly calculated prices: the cheapest model can be had for 60 euros currently, Examined here 10-inch version fails with only 200 euros. For customers must 10 take some weaknesses of the Fire HD in buying, such as the following test shows. Note: ULTIMATE TECH NEWS has this on Android checked based tablet after the new, more complex and much valid since October test procedures.
This is a board
Tablet makers like Apple or Samsung just put in large-sized tablets to screens in 4: 3 format. Disadvantage: The display shows when playing movies of thick black bars.Amazon Fire HD 10, however, has a 16: 10-screen – so only small black bars appearing above in the video playback and below the film. Hook: The tablet is therefore somewhat unwieldy and fall very large. It’s impressive 26.1 centimeters wide, a little on thick 15.9 centimeters high and 8.4 millimeters. Also, the weight is 430 grams with a 10-inch model more than okay – even if it is about the Sony Xperia Tablet Z4 is (389 grams) significantly lighter models.
Drive brakes of scarce memory

Its four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz with a maximum demand, but have to be content with only a 1-gigabyte memory. And that slows the pace especially when many apps are open in parallel. To feel the user get the. In the form of long loading times, two, three commemorative seconds when initiating an action at your fingertips or even the abrupt termination of an app But this is not only the memory due: Also the Fire OS made by Amazon (version 5.01) and on Android 5 based operating system generally worked in the test not as fluid as customers of pure Android Tablets or i Pads know. Leafing through the App or photo collection jerky sporadically, opening a web page takes time.
Operating system, processor and display go not very frugal with energy. With heavy use, the lights went out already after eight hours and ten minutes, when usage is low, there were at least 23 hours and 57 minutes. According to the new test method, the Fire HD 10 landed so in the lower middle. By comparison, the approximately equal size Samsung Galaxy Tab A managed with intensive use 14 hours and 37 minutes. Strange: When charging the battery, the progress bar showed sporadic different values - sometimes she jumped from 3 to 33 percent and back. Whichever is the greater has been the more realistic. Here Amazon needed rectifying.
Facilities with limitations
Also mediocre is the equipment: The (free) memory is not spacious enough with 11.65 gigabytes, but can be if necessary expand via micro SD card. An LTE version for mobile surfing does not offer the producers, GPS for use as a navigation device also missing.NFC for rapid coupling of respective speakers are there not, it includes fast wireless ac and Bluetooth 4.1 standard.
