Fire HD 8 (2018) vs Fire HD 10 (2019)
Thinking about an HD Fire and can’t decide? You could buy both the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 like I did. Or, check out this article and our reviews. Sorry about the lead-in sentences; It’s for SEO purposes.
Down-and-dirty conclusion, the 10 is slightly better than the 8 in almost every category. It’s also big. Like a little silly big.
Ok, let’s break it down (insert music of your choice in your head). Being sister products, here are the features they both share.
Fire HD 8 vs Fire HD 10 Tablet
Now, let’s take a look at what makes them different, other than cost.
I felt the 10 is a little clumsy to handle. I am still struggling with a comfortable way to hold it. It seems like these tablets are best for one-hand operations. I could see a child using it with two hands to play games, or maybe on a stand, which is where mine is.
Our overall conclusion is the Fire HD 8 over the Fire HD 10, only due to the large size of the 10. The 8 seems like the perfect combination of size and performance with the 10 a close second. I am keeping both.
