Just say “no” to so-called “refurbished” Amazon tablets — “refurbished” is duplicitous code for “largely unhackable”. Fire HD 10s can effectively be turned into Android 9 tablets using the Fire Toolkit unless their OS has been updated (apparently all that is done to ones described as “refurbished”). You’ve covered all this in detail, but you fail to warn potential buyers that they’ll be stuck with Amazon’s lockscreen ads and launcher and may not be able to install the Google Play Store easily when these tablets show up in Daily Deals. Unless one is satisfied with the Amazon Store and want to use a tablet designed to sell Amazon’s media, it’s probably too late to get a Fire tablet to use as an Android tablet. My Fire HD 10 is too slow to successfully place Wi-Fi calls on (much less do videoconferencing), but it’s otherwise usable as an Android tablet — not so the newer and “refurbished” models.
