But, if it's a new tablet you’re after, you’ve come to the right place, because we’ve just spotted a huge discount on the Amazon Fire 10 HD. Despite its relatively cheap price tag, The Independent’s technology critic, David Phelan, noted in his review of the best tablets that this device is “well-crafted and capable”.
And now, thanks to the Prime Day sale, it’s even more affordable. So if you’ve been waiting until now to invest, do it today because once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet: Was £159.99, now £89.99, Amazon.co.uk
Thanks to its 10.1in screen, it’s easily “the biggest of any Amazon tablet and the highest resolution”, which makes “it the best Amazon tablet for video playback”, wrote The Independent’s technology critic, David Phelan, in his review of the best tablets.
“It’s a sleek and effective machine, with plenty of power and strong battery life,” he added. What’s more, Phelan noted that it’s easily “the best-value full-size tablet” and there are more than half a million apps you can download.
At £159.99 it’s good value, but now, with nearly 50 per cent off, it really is a no-brainer. Should you want a different colour, it’s available in black, blue, lavender and olive.
Amazon Fire HD 8: Was £89.99, now £39.99, Amazon.co.uk
Amazon has done it again, providing you with another truly whopping deal on a great piece of kit. Although we haven’t reviewed this particular model, the slightly updated Fire HD 8 plus (£109.99, Amazon.co.uk) received high praise in our review of the best tablets, with Phelan writing: that “Amazon’s devices work with each other well, so if you have books on a Kindle, say, they will appear on this tablet.” So, you can trust that this discounted version will perform well.
We don’t think you’ll see a more competitive price anywhere else, so snap this deal up now.
