Why the Amazon Kindle PaperWhite is the best kindle for Readers?
The new 10th Gen Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is the best fit for most people in India to serve as their e-reader. Priced at Rs. 12,999 and available on sale usually every three or so months, the 10th Gen Kindle Paperwhite has the same resolution as the more expensive Kindle Voyage and Kindle Oasis which basically means that the reading quality is almost the same as the higher priced models.
This is the best value for money Kindle. And the reason is simple. It has a reasonable price of Rs 12,999. It has the build quality and design that is noticeably better than what you get with the entry-level Kindle. It has the display lit by LEDs positioned on the sides, which actually doesn’t matter as much as you may think, but is a nice convenience.
Primarily though, we like the Kindle Paperwhite over the entry-level Kindle because of its build quality, design and finishing. Also, get the Wi-Fi version.
The reading experience is smooth and we find ourselves getting through a book a lot quicker when compared to reading a physical book. To turn the page, the user can swipe or tap the screen. A neat feature of all the Kindles is the word dictionary feature which shows the meaning of a word if you long press it. It’s great to build your vocabulary at lightning speed.
The updated model also adds water-resistance, the much-awaited feature and offers 8 GB/ 32 gb of storage capable of holding thousands of books so that you won’t really need to ever buy a physical book.
