If you want a perfect and the best tablet, then Amazon’s tablets are the best tablets that prove value for money. In fact, both the models HD 8 and HD 10 are affordable and offer great value to the users. Even these tablets allow you to download the application from the Amazon store rather than the Google Play store, which is quite good. Amazon’s store has full access to videos, movies, Alexa, e-books, and many more.
Buying one of these tablets among these two products might prove the best deal for you. The only issue for the buyers to choose a better option among these two products.
Love watching a video or reading e-books, each has its quality
As expected, the Fire HD 10 (Larger in screen) is more expensive than the Fire HD 8 (smaller one). The Fire HD 10 is not just bigger; it offers a denser display with the resolution of 1920*1200 pixels at 224 pixels per inch. Both provide the same storage options i.e., 32GB and 64GB variants, and both the models can allow their users to expand their storage capacity with a MicroSD memory card.
Let’s talk about the specialization of both the products. Both Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 offer similar experience because both the devices run on the Fire OS operating system rather than the traditionally built android operating system. You need to install the applications from Amazon’s store, which means the devices focus much more on Amazon’s software.
One more fantastic quality of this product is that both the tablets come with unlimited storage to the cloud, and you can also watch the new and incredible content that was streaming on their sites.
You will also get the support from Alexa that can assist you through the voice commands to navigate the software, and Alexa can perform several functions on your voice command. The digital command is now must feature in every tablet, and both the tablets have this feature.
For the help of Alexa, Amazon has introduced the feature show mode in both the models that can give a visual representation of the things that Alexa is doing for you. It includes showing the calendar appointments, latest news, weather report, and smartest security camera if you connected one with the tablets.
While choosing any tablet, you must have to consider why you are buying this product. If you want the tablet just for reading e-books (From Amazon’s enormous e-book library), occasionally for video playback or music playback, you can go for the smaller but powerful Fire HD 8. It can give all these options at a lower price. If you prefer watching videos, movies or shows on the tablet, you should go for the HD 10 with the more prominent and brighter screen, which is available at approximately double the price of the Fire HD 8. The larger, denser display with the louder speaker at this price is a decent deal. No doubt, it is expensive from the Fire HD 8, but it is cheaper than the other tablets available in the market with the same feature.
Now, it’s up to you which product you will buy. But one thing is sure that buying any model can prove the best buy for you. Both models are an excellent deal for the ones who use tablets for media consumption and light gaming. These tablets are universal for everyone, whether you are buying it for yourself or for your kids.
