The Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet isn’t all that expensive, but you’ll still want to protect your investment. In this buying guide we’ll explain why you need a screen protector for your Amazon Fire 10 and share a list of the best protectors available. A good glass screen protector can keep your screen scratch free and your tablet looking new. These fit the latest Fire HD 10 tablet from 2017.
Amazon reintroduced all of its tablets in 2017 with a slight redesign, more power, and a low price tag. As a result, the big 10-inch Fire HD 10 takes on the iPad while only costing $150. This gives you money leftover for accessories like a screen protector.
With a big 10-inch display a durable screen protector is highly recommended. There are several different types of protection to choose from. We’ve found some priced under $8, which is less than spending $150 on a new tablet when one breaks. Others are priced around $15 and offer more durable materials or a 3-pack to protect multiple tablets.
The cheapest screen protection is a film. This is a thin layer of durable military-grade material that’s typically scratch-resistant to some degree. Most of these come in a 3-pack too, which means you’ll get enough screen protectors for the entire family, all for one low price. A film is better than nothing, especially if you don’t have a case. Keep in mind that a film may scratch easier, or peel off over time, which is why we recommend glass instead.
More expensive Fire HD 10 protectors use a chemically hardened and strengthened glass. This is what comes on your tablet itself, known as tempered glass. These are extremely scratch and shatter-resistant and can handle daily abuse. If it does break, the tablet screen is usually safe underneath.
Even if you buy a case, and you should, a screen protector is still a good idea. A case won’t keep the screen safe from life’s daily hazards, daily abuse from your kids, or keys in a backpack or purse. General wear and tear type stuff.
So, whether you bought one tablet or a 5-pack for the entire family, get some protection. These are the best screen protectors for the Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet.
