Introducing Blue Shade.  Using specialized filters, Blue Shade minimizes blue light, which can inhibit your ability to fall asleep. Comfortable nighttime reading on a tablet with less eye strain. Provides ultra-low brightness for reading in dark rooms.

Read comfortably at night...

Blue Shade is an exclusive Fire OS “Bellini” feature that works behind the scenes to automatically adjust and optimize the backlight for a more comfortable nighttime reading experience. Simply tap Blue Shade on the quick actions menu to turn on this feature and enjoy your favorite book, news article, app, or any other nighttime activity without straining your eyes.

...without giving up a good night’s sleep

Recent studies by Harvard Health Publications have shown that evening exposure to blue light from electronic screens can suppress our bodies’ production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone. The suppression of melatonin can prolong the time it takes to fall asleep, which in turn can delay REM sleep and reduce alertness the following morning. Blue Shade gives you the option to fine-tune the color settings, with the device intelligently adjusting the color filtering so that at any color or brightness, the blue wavelength light is always sufficiently suppressed compared to other wavelengths.

Configuration: Without Special OffersColor: BlackDigital Storage Capacity: 32 Verified Purchase
I previously owned an Asus infinity with 10 inch screen until it died on vacation and I grabbed the smaller 8 gb fire during the one day sale. I could not get used to the small screen or lack of storage so here I am with the new 10 inch fire. If you liked your fire 7 you will love this. The 32 gb is sufficient itself for downloading tons of books, music, and a couple of movies and games but when you pair that with the ability at last to use a memory card (and it's about time Amazon makes a version that can do this) the storage is enough for even most power users! Set up is a breeze just follow the onscreen instructions. Within minutes out of the box I was surfing the web, checking my email and posting on Facebook. After charging the battery to full I streamed a one hour tv show from Netflix and when I checked afterwards the battery was still at 95 percent. I am writing this review on it right now. If you have prime you can download a movie to watch later without needing your wifi which is a big plus for me as we are in storm season here so when the power goes out I can at least watch a movie.

Configuration: With Special OffersColor: BlackDigital Storage Capacity: 16
I bought this tablet for its size, economical price point, and the ability to watch content offline. And it offers exactly that...but falls short on performance parameters. If you're price sensitive and are looking for a value tablet, large screen, and the ability to watch content offline, this is a great device to get. However, if you already have an earlier Kindle like the HDX 8.9 or even an earlier version of the Fire, I recommend keeping your tablet since this device wouldn't really be a worthwhile upgrade. I have been disappointed with several operating shortcomings of the device.

The
- constant freezing of the device,
- slow speed to load apps,
- significant lags when switching apps that only become worse as you load more stuff on the tablet,
- erratic wifi connection that drops often and the ensuing trouble to connect back to the same network, and
- the frequent need to reboot the device,

all factors made this a frustrating device to own . The HDX is far better in every aspect, heck even the original Fire 7 runs better than this device.

The only good things about this device are the screen size and the MicroSD slot. So if you're only watching videos on this, and would like to have the option of watching content offline when you're traveling, this tablet would be just fine. Otherwise, the HDX is still a better option, or you could get the 7" or 8" Fire models. Those are priced cheaper and work better.

Original review is below

For the price point and size alone, the Fire HD 10 would seem like a good deal. For its performance, however, it falls short of expectations. I would probably rate it a 3.5 overall. If it wasn't for the price, the rating would have been even lower.

This is my 4th Kindle Fire, I also have the first generation, an 8.9” HDX and the new 6”. The first thing that impresses is how thin and light this new model is, despite being the largest Fire to date. I love the more narrow, widescreen design of the screen, perfect for watching videos and reading books in portrait mode. Anyway, before I get carried away gushing, I’ll just list my pros and one or two cons, to make this easier to read and save time.

PROS:

Wide screen design is perfect for videos and allows more text on a page for books.
The stereo speakers sound incredible, even better than the previous HDX model
For comic book readers; comics purchased from Amazon now utilize the active panel reading mode from Comixology. I was wondering when Amazon was going to incorporate this feature for their comics, finally!
Battery life seems to be similar to my 8.9” HDX, but I’m happy with that considering the larger screen and thinness of the device.
Considerably faster response time across the board.
Finally! We can add a micro SD card to expand storage capacity! Yay!
The camera takes photos that are much better quality than previous Fire

CONS:

Would have preferred a rubberized back and case. The glossy finish is a fingerprint magnet also.
Still deciding on the new software layout, maybe it’s because I’m so familiar with the old Fire OS, but let’s just say I’m not blown away be the design so far.

My FIVE star rating means "I love it!" The back story is that I am an unashamed Amazon fanboy. The only thing I look for in an Amazon produced product (or any other) is will it suit my needs.

UPDATE: the FIRE operating system has updated after Christmas 2015 to version 5.1.1 so now we get a free trial of the Amazon-owned Washington Post newspaper in an excellent new app (if we have Amazon Prime - you'd be a fool not to, considering the benefits).

The new Fire 10 HD is most certainly what I hoped it would be. The setup (it downloads updates) can take an hour or so (while you explore its features - while plugged in to its included small power brick). Mine had about a 60% charge right out of the box.

I had pre-ordered mine a few weeks earlier. It came on the day promised. To prevent moisture damage it arrived with the actual unit in a shrinkwrap plastic which I left in place until my screen cover arrives (just punched a hole in it for the power cable and the earphone jack).

Just like a Windows installation, it will give you the chance to select the level of privacy you want. Amazon, to help it sell you more stuff, hopes you grant it the ability to hoover up details of your photos, browsing, etc. I declined most of that. You can change your selections later.

If, like me, you have bought music on Amazon the Fire 10 will list all selections available for you to hear online or download. BTW I bought the 32GB version. I would have bought a larger capacity if it had been available. But I suppose Amazon will bring out a more advanced version of this product in a year or so.

Background on my tablets/phones: my first Fire was the original with (I think) just 8GB of memory. It's now obsolete and has a date with the crusher.
