Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro: Wonderful screen and Great battery life!


Hardware-wise, the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro 2021 ($199) is almost the same as the great Amazon Fire HD 10 ($199). (2021). It has the same octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and vibrant 1900×1200 display as the original. The key difference is that it’s made for older kids aged 6 to 12. So it comes with a one-year Amazon Kids+ subscription. Colorful kickstand case, and a two-year warranty that covers accidental damage with no questions asked.

All of this comes at a $50 premium above the Amazon Fire HD 10’s base model. Even with the price increase, the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro is one of the best Android tablets for kids. It does, however, have a few flaws that prevent it from receiving an unqualified recommendation: like the base model Fire HD 10. The Fire HD 10 Kids Pro has poor speakers and lacks access to the Google Play Store. If those flaws don’t bother you, the price, display, and warranty are more than enough.

While Amazon‘s app store isn’t as large as Google’s or Apple’s, it does have a lot to offer, especially with the Amazon Kids+ subscription included. Amazon includes numerous settings for parents to balance education and pleasure, including kid-friendly applications, television, movies, and books.

Price and availability

The Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) has a starting price of $199 and is currently available for purchase. You may choose from four various case designs, ranging from plain black to vibrant colors with eye-catching patterns. The Doodle case, which layers kid-friendly icons atop a beautiful shade of purple, came with the review unit.

The Fire HD 10 Kids Pro is also available in a 275-dollar package. Also, that includes a NuPro zipper sleeve cover, a screen protector, and a pair of volume-limiting Bluetooth headphones for kids.


The Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) is a basic slate tablet hidden beneath the multi-colored plastic casing. The tablet is housed in a chassis with a Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels) 16:10 display and a built-in kickstand. So that makes a nice firm click when it’s in place. Although if you don’t open the kickstand all the way out to the point where it clicks into place (about 60 degrees), the tablet will start slipping. The stand can be utilized as a handle in the hand, making drops less likely.

The power and volume controls, as well as the USB Type-C 2.0 connector and the 3.5mm headphone socket, are all located on one side of the tablet. Dual speakers and a selfie camera are located on the top of the device.

The slate looks just like the Fire HD 10 when it’s not in use (2021). Even without the textured, rubberized cover, the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro is strong and feels firm and steady in the hand. However, at over a pound, it might be exhausting for younger users to carry for long periods of time.

You can firmly press down on the tablet when the kickstand is removed and it is put on a hard surface, and it will not move. However, if the surface you’ve placed it on is smooth or soft, the stand’s foot may skid or topple over. As you should encourage kids who want to tap their fingers to place the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro on a solid, flat surface with some friction.

Display of Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro 

Display of Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro 

The Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) offers a vibrant, color-rich display that brings cartoons and games to life in high-definition. Even in mild sunlight, Cocomelon’s primary-soaked palette looks sharp and vivid on the tablet’s display. Although Angry Birds is fluid and clear.

According to the evaluations, the screen has good color accuracy and brightness, covering 107 percent of the sRGB spectrum at a maximum brightness of 405 nits on average.

The display of the Kindle Fire HD 10 Kids Pro appears to be crisp and clear, with no screen ghosting. Touch navigation is also responsive and accurate, allowing for fine control in programs like KidsDoodle. The tablet also appeared to be capable of detecting pressure and contact width.

Audio of Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro 

The Fire HD 10 Kids (2021) has one hardware flaw: the speakers. Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia’s ’80s pop-inspired bops lacked force, and Rush’s Tom Sawyer’s hi-hats lost their depth and definition at loud levels above moderate.

This was true with the base Fire HD 10 (2021) tablet, however, the supplied cases helped a little. Both offer an extra channel for directing sound at the user which improves quality and helps to contain noise from your child’s media. It’s not quite enough to get Baby Shark out of your head. But it does reduce listening strain for both the user and anyone else nearby.

Performance of Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro 

The Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) has the same octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM as the Fire HD 10 tablet for regular use. That’s more than enough to get most jobs done quickly, though anything beyond the essentials can cause it to chug. Amazon Kids+ or Kindle load almost instantly. It’s also quick to close tasks and return to the home screen, albeit loading anything other than your background image isn’t. When switching between apps with the task manager, there is also a considerable lag.

When Creepers find their mark and go boom, Minecraft runs smoothly with some stuttering. However, Minecraft is known for being forgiving, or at least flexible to a wide range of hardware; because of its limited RAM and graphics muscle, the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) may struggle to run other 3D games, such as Off The Road.

If games are your primary priority, a larger Android tablet like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is a better choice.

Battery life of Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro 

The Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) can get a few more minutes of battery life with the Automatic Low Power Mode which allows you to get a little more use out of your device. Also On a single charge which can be configured to start saving energy when the battery level reaches 20%, it won’t get you much more than 30 minutes. Even so, unless your kids are watching videos for hours in the middle of the day, you should be able to get a day or two of heavy use out of a single charge.


Webcams have become a new focal point of our everyday lives in the COVID-19 age. Especially for those who still connect via Zoom or other video conferencing tools. As a result, the cameras on the Fire HD 10 Kids are functional but not particularly sharp or vibrant. The rear-facing sensor has a resolution of 5-megapixels, while the selfie camera has a resolution of 2-megapixels.

Image quality was good throughout the performance, however, indoor images appeared darker and bluer than they should have been. Any bright spots will also throw the Fire HD’s white and light balance off. The selfie camera performs admirably, however, the reduced resolution introduces distortions around finer features such as my two-day beard.


Amazon’s proprietary Fire OS, which runs on the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro tablet, can be a hard thing to deal with. When interacting with other Amazon services, it’s OK, but if you need almost anything else, you might run into some issues.

Because the Google Play Store app isn’t available on Fire OS, you’ll be missing out on some of the best and most useful Android software. For example, Google Drive and the full-featured YouTube app aren’t available. You’re also out of luck if your child requires Google Docs for an assignment.

However, if you’re a big fan of Amazon‘s media ecosystem, there’s a lot to like. Thousands of hours of fun and instruction are available through Prime Video, Kindle, and Amazon. However, before you spend money on this tablet, make sure you’ll have access to all of the programs and resources you or your children will require.

On the plus side, the Amazon Kids+ app has a lot of parental settings that are simple to use. You may add or remove content from their library at any time, and establish daily limitations for particular app categories. Create distinct schedules for each day of the week, and even enable location-based permissions. It’s a comprehensive feature set, but it’s worth noting that it’s available on all Fire HD 10 devices, not just the Kids versions.

The associated Amazon Kids+ subscription, on the other hand, benefits those content controls. When you buy a Fire HD Kids tablet, you receive a free year of kid-friendly service. But if you want to keep using it after that, you’ll need either a $2.99/month individual child plan or a $6.99 family plan that supports up to four children.


The Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) is a well-rounded tablet with a number of useful kid-friendly features. Its main selling features are its long battery life and eye-catching display. But there’s a lot more to like: the USB Type-C port makes charging quick and straightforward, and the supplied bumper cover protects your investment from toddlers and tweens.

If you’re looking for a kid-friendly tablet, few can compete with the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021) at $199, especially with the substantially extended warranty. If your children require a more versatile device, the more powerful and more expensive 8th Generation iPad (2020) or the less expensive and less powerful Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. Both of which have access to the whole Android app ecosystem may be appropriate.

You’ll receive a great all-around tablet that allows your kids to learn and play on their own schedule If you do decide to get a new Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (2021).
