Amazon Fire HD 6

Read full Amazon Fire HD 6 review

A small 6-inch tablet that's perfect for kids

Key features:
  • 6-inch, 1,280 x 800 pixel IPS screen
  • Mediatek CPU
  • 8/16GB storage
  • Fire OS
The Amazon Fire HD 6 is one of the first sub-7-inch tablets we’ve seen. It uses a 6-inch screen, giving it proportions that kids are more likely to get on with. Just as important, it’s also cheap. At £80 for the 8GB version, you’re not going to have to cancel your kids' pocket money for a whole year if they accidentally drop it.

With tablets of this price, you generally have to deal with a great many hardware cuts, but there are remarkably few here. The Fire HD 6 has a good-quality IPS screen, a surprisingly powerful processor and very good battery life. It’s not as slim as we’d like and it uses Amazon’s more restrictive Fire OS rather than normal Android, but it’s still a corker for children or budget buyers.

Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £79

At time of review the Amazon Fire HD 6 was available for £79.

disagree! have 8 in. Tab 4. too small. better choice for all around is 10 or 12 in. will replace many PCs now in use. add a keyboard and mouse when needed for utility. also SD port and USB an asset. does not have to be paper thin but reasonable weight. a good screen and stable touch an asset. reasonable price a must for success. wishful thinking?

The Nvidia Shield tablet you link to, the K1 version, can be yours new for under £150 now, and as an owner, I think it the best "small" tablet you can buy bar none (especially now they've released the botched Marshmallow update). A new version, based around the X1 SOC has been benchmarked and will presumably be out soon.

I realise aggregating existing reviews into a "best of" feature is a quick way of generating new content but when the original review you link to is, in this instance, dated October 2014, you do need to have a look at whether it's still up to date.
