Fire HD 10 NEW 2021 Model – Unboxing and First Impressions!
The one in this video is olive, but it also comes in lavender denim and black you’ve got a 64 gigabyte version, and this one here is 32 gigabytes. I really feel 64 gigs should be the minimum by now, but it is what it is. You can also get it without the lock screen ads, but you’re only going to get that in the black version. You can also get a bundle that comes with a case screen protector and 15 watt charger for an extra cost. This is currently 150 bucks on amazon, but i’ll leave a link in the description below, because amazon always likes to put these on sale pretty much for any occasion. So now, with this model, you get 50 more ram than the previous version, which is three gigabytes. You get up to 12 hours battery life, which i’ll definitely be testing on this if it’s anything like the previous gin, yeah it’s gon na be one of the best for battery life. They’Re also advertising that you get a 10 brighter display on this one, and this is a 10.1 inch 1080p full hd display you’re gon na get most of the popular apps like netflix, facebook, hulu, instagram, tick, tock and others through the amazon app store. Unfortunately, you still can’t get the google play store on here. I mean there’s ways to add it, but i really think you should get the google play store right out of the box. You can also ask alexa to make video calls to friends and family you’re.
Also going to get microsoft, office, evernote and dropbox, you can also do hands free with alexa, with an on and off toggle. This is also thinner and lighter than the previous generation. It also takes a micro sd card up to one terabyte, and this weighs in at 1.03 pounds. So let’s go ahead and open it up and see what we’ve got Applause. So you’ve got a quick start guide and some tips to get. You started on what you can do with this tablet: 9 watt charging brick pretty decent length on the usbc charging; cable, really nice plastic back on here, i’m sort of glad i got this olive color. This actually looks pretty good there’s, where your micro sd card goes. Speakers there on the top of the tablet there on the right hand, side you’ve got a headphone jack, usbc charging port power and volume buttons. You can see there’s the new boot up screen pretty much the same as on my fire tv actually, and then the front facing camera is centered on the side or the top, depending on how you’re holding the tablet bezels are pretty much even all the way around. So that’s definitely a nice upgrade Music. You get unlimited access to thousands of movies and tv shows over two million songs and even select books, comics and magazines that you can borrow at no additional cost and with for you a page of curated content personalized to your tastes, it’s easy to discover new things.
Nice little intro video there. They always do to give you a few tips and tricks. You can also choose to make this kid friendly on startup and then you can choose between pin or password when setting the screen. Lock. Goodreads does come with this as a free service and it looks like you can choose between books and videos, that’s already included with your prime membership. Oh the terminal that’s, actually a pretty good movie. You can use your voice to open now. One thing i noticed already when starting this up, it starts talking to you out of the left side of the tablet. I don’t know that’s a little weird if you’re going to be using your tablet in portrait mode, the sound’s always going to be coming from one side or the other versus on the bottom, like the old version. Not that big a deal – i guess so, as you can see, it looks pretty similar to other fire hd tablets. Here it is next to the 8 inch fire hd tablet. This will give you an idea of how much larger the 10 inch version is pretty much. The same design as the smaller one, but obviously quite a bit larger up in the notification shade you’re gon na get wi fi bluetooth, airplane mode, do not disturb auto rotate blue shade. Okay looks more like orange shade, but okay you’ve also got low power mode. Camera storage and then you’ve got shortcut to settings your account and help swipe to the left of the home screen and you’re going to get 4u, which basically they’re just going to suggest a lot of different content, which i think is going to be helpful to most.
People, you can see all the pre installed apps here on the home screen. Luckily, there’s not a whole lot of bloatware and then next is your library and it looks like that’s pretty much it so you’ve just got library home and for you it actually seems a little more simplified than what i remember on the other fire hd tablets. I mean if you’ve used other fire hd tablets. You’Re gon na be really familiar with this one, okay, so right out of the box. Surprisingly, even after downloading a few apps, i still have just over 20 gigabytes available, but i really wish they’d make 64 gigabytes your base, storage. Okay. So apparently there was an update. Already nice thing. Is you get full hd playback on netflix? Unfortunately, you still can’t get the youtube app on here, but it does look like you could just download the shortcut where it takes you to the web version. It does let you go up to 2k for youtube videos, though so that’s nice. Let me give you a quick sound test just so you can see what the speakers sound like inside the box. It looks like you got an activation code for adobe access, customer support information and then they also throw in some stickers and of course, quick start guide. Removable mic that’s, always nice to see. As you can see, this is going to fit any size head and it feels pretty durable while you’re doing that as well.
If you start twisting that it does make a little bit of creaking noise, but i think that’s just because you can remove the ear cups i don’t know for some reason these speakers sound a little bit muffled i’m, not sure why? But overall i guess they’re not bad i’m, just glad there’s a headphone jack on here, because that’s probably how i would be watching stuff most of the time. Anyways split screen on here seems pretty good as well. Nice thing is, you can get a keyboard specifically made for this new model and it’s made by fenty it’s, pretty much all plastic, but nice thing is, it seems to fit perfectly you’ve got all the ports exposed on the sides and it’s detachable, add a bluetooth mouse And you’re pretty much ready to go. It’S, definitely going to be that much closer to feeling like a laptop once you connect a bluetooth, mouse it’s, a pretty simple keyboard. You just go in and connect it through bluetooth. Just like you would any other bluetooth keyboard. I feel like it’s a pretty decent keyboard for this tablet and it’s, just always good to have extra options, and then you can use some shortcuts that you would on a laptop like alt tab, just to switch between apps and, if you’re, going to use microsoft. Apps. Like word excel, that kind of stuff, yeah you’ll, definitely want to get a keyboard. Shutter speed on here feels like it’s plenty fast enough, but yeah resolution on here really is not that great, and you can definitely tell when you zoom in on the details.
You do get a few options here like auto hdr and night. You can also put the grid lines on and there’s also a timer. Now the front camera on here is going to be pretty horrible. I can tell you already it’s only 1.9 megapixels and they’re saying you can use this for zoom, oh boy, and then the rear camera is a little bit better at 5 megapixels. So the front facing camera for video is only 720p and then the rear facing camera is full hd, 1080p resolution so here’s just a few samples of photos and video. Just to give you an idea of what to expect so yeah. Overall, the cameras on this tablet are pretty bad there’s. Maybe a couple tablets out there that might be worse, but yeah. This is definitely in bottom of the barrel. As far as camera quality goes – and i know they’re advertising apps like zoom – for this tablet, but yeah there’s – no way i would use this for zoom you’re gon na get much better quality just using your cell phone hehe Music. Now gaming on this tablet is actually pretty decent you’re not going to get call of duty mobile, but you will get quite a few popular games like pubg mobile asphalt, 9 and both of those look really sharp in my testing. Now it does get a little warm during gaming, but overall i’m pretty satisfied with gaming on this tablet, especially considering what you’re paying for this tablet.
I haven’t tested battery life on this tablet yet, but i can tell already this is definitely going to be one of the best as far as battery life. I know just leaving this tablet set overnight. It only went one percent lower, pretty much overnight so in about eight hours. So overall do i think this new fire hd10 is worth it. I got ta say just the fact that they updated the look of this with somewhat normal sized bezels all the way around. Definitely makes it worth getting, especially if you’ve got an older model. That’S say two three years old. I would definitely say check this one out now. Obviously, this doesn’t feel as high quality as ipads or the more expensive android tablets, but i feel like what you’re getting for the price. This is actually a pretty decent tablet now, if they could just add, the google play store right out of the box.
