I bought a 10" Fire to replace a Galaxy Note 10.1 last black friday... I haven't been particularly impressed. Even so, I doubt it could corral me into giving Apple their first purchase at my expense...
Sideloading the Google APK on the Fire made a huge difference in usability app wise.
The Fire OS is a big downgrade from even Samsungs skinning of android, and the tablet itself is more of a gateway into the Amazon universe (I ignore most of that stuff). With the good friday price I still think the fire 10 (2019 model) would be the best deal, as long as one understands it's not a premium tablet and has a bastardized version of android. Speakers aren't the loudest, you won't be gaming on it and the screen does not have the most nits or resolution.
I've made the decision and will be snagging the base model 10.2" ipad
. Still real happy with my low/mid range moto smart phone and doubt I'll ever drop more than $250 for a phone, so this ipad experiment will probably be my last venture into the applezone. This comment was edited on Nov 21, 2019, 12:52.
A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test.
It's a compassion test.
It's a decency test.
It's a social responsibility test.
