Amazon takes a lot of the spots in our best cheap tablets round-up, proving the company is perfecting its affordable tablets with respectable specs on board and super low prices.

The Amazon Fire HD 10 is available now in both 32 GB ($150) and 64 GB ($190) variants.

Amazon has unveiled a revamped Fire HD 10 tablet, which will go on sale October 11. The previous generation model stated at $229 for 16GB of storage. Not only is it now $100 less than the previous model with a starting price of $150, but it also has hands-free Alexa voice controls, which essentially turns it into a portable and supercharged Echo Show.

The Fire HD 10 is made out of plastic, and comes in three color options - Black, Marine Blue and Punch Red.

The Fire HD 10 has an excellent IPS panel. That equals 224 pixels-per-inch and the slate also delivers a vibrant image. If you have an Amazon Prime account and make most of your digital purchases through Amazon, this is no bad thing.

We don't know much about how the Fire HD 10 (2017) will perform, but we know it comes with a quad-core chipset and 2GB of RAM. There is also an 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter so streaming can be done seamlessly. There's 2GBs of RAM, 32GBs of internal storage, stereo speakers with Dolby Audio technology, and a microSD card slot.

Amazon adds more Alexa, more battery life and more speed to its new tablet. As with those speakers, you can use Alexa to load music and audiobooks, answer questions, bring up your calendar, and interact with your connected smart home devices.

Also, for the first time on a Fire tablet, you will be able to ask Alexa to show you what's on your smart home security camera with compatible devices from Nest, Ring and Arlo - although this won't be available at launch. But it also offers Dolby Atmos Audio, front- and rear-facing cameras, and all those odd Amazon exclusive features like ASAP, X-Ray, Whispersync, Second Screen, and so on. It gives you recommendations depending on what you've previously watched, read or listened to.

In short, you no longer have to hold down a button for Amazon's assistant to start responding to your orders. The more loyal customers are to Alexa, the less they'll feel the need to use another assistant. "Lenovo did just release 4 new tablets recently with the 10.1" Tab 4 having a 720p display and costing $20 more than what Amazon has to offer.
