Hey guys looking for similar item as well for youtube streaming...just a question if order for amazon US site will the voltage be any issue? understand US uses 110v sg uses 220v rite? i worry the device will blow when i charge....any bros have any experience??
Most bundled chargers can take both 110v and 220v input. Just double check before using. Worst case, use your current handphone/table chargers. They all work.

was thinking to get the 10' to replace my mom's nexus 7.

just checking can it d/l n play most games on google play store?

I owned a HD 8 as my secondary tablet when i charge my ipad.
So far i don't see any games that can't be played (playing star wars heroes as main game now)
But don't expect performance is like high end tablets.

For around S$160 which i brought almost a year ago i think is worth it
Especially if those looking for basic usage(youtube, reading.. etc) and not trying to do customization

Hoot with special offers or no special offers better?

Tbh even if remove the special offers (ads + screensavers), you also can't customised your own lock screen pic leh

I've not received mine, but this is what Amazon says about removing Special Offers after purchasing.

Received mine yesterday! Charged up and installed Google services. Gmail keep crashing due to the + sign in my emails (from Googling). Installed all my usual apps all working very well, and played a few rounds of Asphalt 8.

Overall very satisfied for US$99.

Only complain is the launcher cannot change. The default launcher very dangerous as anyone can easily make purchase in default setting. Need to setup Parental Control or just sign-out of Amazon account, to be safe.

Oh, and the OS is updated to 5.6.0.0, but not sure what's changed.

Amazon Fire 10 Tablet
I used VPost, purchased 4 pieces and shipment about SGD$42 from US to SG. I think price back to normal already right, no more Black Friday prices.
