Knowing the fact that the earliest Kindle device of 4gig can hold up 30,000 books [¹], why will anyone still lug a physical book around? If it is a short trip commuting from one point to another, a book does provide a quick mental getaway, covering and finishing more pages and finishing the book earlier too.
What if wanting to have the option to have all the titles in one device weighing under 200 grams? And it costs less than $100.
Will you want it?
If your answer is yes, this page will be useful for you to pick the right Kindle to suit your lifestyle.
This basic Kindle model uses a 6inches if electronic ink capacitive touchscreen for reading, and it lights up so you can read in the dark. A single charge lasts up to 4 weeks, based on a half-hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 13.
The only downsides are it’s not water-proof, no light-adjusting sensors or rotating page orientation, and it still uses a MicroUSB charging port.
The Kindle Paperwhite will be considered a slight upgrade from Kindle.
The touchscreen is noticeably clearer (300 vs. 167)pixels/inch. With better lights, flush-front design and more importantly, waterproof of IPX8 certified.
The All-new Kindle Oasis will be the full upgrade from the earliest 2 devices.
Not only it has the largest screen size of 7inches, the best-LED front lights, but it also has an ergonomic design, auto-rotating page orientation and page turn buttons.
This is the best option for the best reading experience. We are sorry that it is not under $100 as promised. However, the price matches the quality. And in our view, a good reading device makes it easier to flip the pages faster. (We love the page-turning buttons!)
The Kindle Kids Edition will be exactly similar to regular Kindle in terms of specifications. With the $20 price difference, there is a 2 year guaranteed replacement and a one-year subscription to FreeTime Unlimited. As it meant for purely reading, there are no games, ads, or voice assistants to interrupt.
Now with the 2 years guaranteed replacement, all parents will be willing to let kids from 7 years old and up to handle this version of Kindle.
Hope this sums all the popular Kindle readers on Amazon. There are other reading devices, however, these are the ones which focuses and specialises for reading purposes. Hope this is a simple and concise guide to narrow down the choices.
