Fire HD 10’s camera quality is not that impressive. The blur effect over here is more prominent sometimes because the pixels appear to be shattering on a closer look. But, what else can you expect from a tab carrying 5 inches rear camera and a 720pixels front one?

The same distinction occurs between both of the rivals in terms of the video-making quality. Here, the Ultra-HD 4K video quality of Tab A 10.1 wins the tug of video war against its rival which claims an HD quality video making. Apart from this, another feature that is prevalent in both is the auto-focus which gives you a door towards improved photography. But, the sad news is that you are not going to find a rear camera flash in both.
