We evaluated every model to discover the ideal one for everyone, whether you need a travel-friendly tablet, want to buy Mini Tablets or something inexpensive for the kids.
Amazon’s fire tablets are among the few high-profile, low-cost tablets available. The Amazon tablet prices in Dubai appear to be too good to be true—and they are in some ways—but Fire tablets are also fully functional and powerful gadgets. We examined each model to help you determine if one of these slates is appropriate for you. These are our unedited suggestions.
The Most Effective Fire Tablet
Fire HD 10 (2021)
The Amazon Fire HD 10 is the company’s biggest and fastest tablet. This year, Amazon updated it with a brighter screen and 3 gigabytes of RAM (7/10, WIRED Recommends). Accompanying it, there’s now a new Fire HD 10 Plus with 4 GB of RAM and wireless charging, which is worth the additional $30 if you plan to do more with your tablet than watch movies and surf the web. Amazon is hoping you’ll do more, too, with a new “productivity package” that includes a decent keyboard (but no touchpad) and a one-year Microsoft 365 subscription. If you don’t require Google applications, working on the Fire HD 10 isn’t terrible. On the Fire HD 10, none of Google’s office programs, including the browser, operate.
The Fire HD 10 features a bigger screen than its brothers, with more pixels (1080p), making it ideal for viewing clips. You can also yell instructions to Alexa from all over the room, much like the Fire HD 8. Scroll down on the notification display and tick the Show Mode option to activate Alexa’s Show Mode. After that, you can put your HD 10 on a stand (we recommend the official wireless charging stand if you get the Plus variant) and it will function as an Echo Show.
The Most Economical Fire Tablet
Fire HD 8 (2020)
The 2020 edition of the Fire HD 8 is one of the finest tablet bargains on the market. The Fire HD 8 series is nearly as powerful as its larger sister, thanks to its travel-friendly size, a CPU update, and a Plus model ($110) with 3 gigabytes of RAM and wireless charging.
It’s small enough to carry with you wherever you go, and the screen won’t irritate your eyes when watching Netflix. However, the screen of the bigger Fire HD 10, which has a greater pixel density, isn’t nearly as beautiful.
Despite this, the HD 8 offers many of the same features as the HD 10, including hands-free Alexa, stereo sound, USB-C, and a battery life of over 12 hours. If you intend on viewing movies or TV, I recommend Amazon’s magnetic stand-up cover, or the Wireless Charging Dock, which converts your tablet into an Echo Show speaker if you get the Plus model.
The Best Fire Tablet for Children
Kids’ Edition of the Fire HD 8 (2020)
Amazon provides two distinct Kids Edition Fire tablets, recognizing that “kids” encompasses a broad range of hand sizes and other characteristics. There is a standard Kids Edition as well as a “Pro” variant. The latter, which is intended for older children, has a more streamlined casing with less padding and allows parents to install programs from a separate Kids app store. We believe the HD 8 ($140) is the ideal gadget for younger children, while the 2021 Fire HD 10 Kids Pro ($200) is preferable for older children because of its size.
The Kids Edition Fire tablets are identical to the normal Fire tablets, with the exception that they come with a tough cover and a two-year worry-free warranty, which means Amazon will replace the tablet for free if your children destroy it. It also includes a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, which provides access to kid-friendly movies, books, games, and applications. After the first year, it costs $3 each month.
Older Fire Tablets are available for purchase on Amazon. Don’t Purchase Them
Only the “10th Generation” or “11th Generation” Fire tablets should be purchased. We recommend sticking to the pills discussed in this article (also listed here).
If you’re on a budget, the 2019 Fire HD 10 is frequently cheaper than the new one. The disadvantage is that it, as well as other older Fire tablets, may not receive software upgrades as often as the current generation. You’ll also miss out on the latest model’s quicker processor and additional RAM.
Avoid the Fire 7
The Amazon Fire 7 price in Dubai is low on the market. If you use your Fire tablet more than a 3-year-old who adores Carl the Super Truck, you should probably spend a bit more money and get an HD 8. The 7-inch screen, as we said in our Fire 7 review, seems cramped, and the screen quality is significantly pixelated. The mono speaker, which can be readily obstructed with a single finger, will irritate you. Its battery is similarly inferior to the other two tablets, and the 8 GB of internal storage is pitifully inadequate, necessitating the use of a MicroSD card from the start.
If you’re prepared to make some concessions, Amazon may provide the finest bargain in tablet computing. For light online surfing and movie viewing, the Fire series has more than enough specs. The available software is relatively restricted as a compromise for the low pricing, but this should not be an issue for most users.
