Which Kindle Should You Buy?

Kindle is a great way to read, and e-readers have many advantages over paper books. However, there isn’t just one Kindle to choose from. From Paperwhite to Oasis to Kids Edition, we’ll help you find the right one.

There have been many different Kindle e-readers over the years. At first, there was only Kindle. Amazon soon began to add other brands, some of which were discontinued. At the time of writing in July 2022,

Amazon offers six Kindle models:

What do they have in common?

Kindle Paperwhite in a bag. Amazon Let’s start by talking about what you get from each Kindle eReader. There are a few features that are standard in all the different models. Things you don’t have to worry about when deciding which one to buy.

First, all Kindle e-readers have subscriptions. Gone are the days of using a physical keyboard and d-pad to navigate the Kindle interface. The only model with physical buttons is the Kindle Oasis (page turn button).

Second, all Kindle e-readers have a back. This feature was originally reserved for the Paperwhite and other “premium” models, but now you can read in the dark on all of them. The only difference is the number of LEDs. The standard Kindle and the children’s Kindle are not as bright as the others. The last thing is the security option. The default storage for all Kindle models is 8 GB. If 8GB isn’t enough, the Paperwhite and Oasis models also have a 32GB option.

Screen size matters

The Kindle Paperwhite has a bright screen. Amazon One of the most notable differences between Kindle models is screen size and resolution. The Kindle Standard and Kindle Kids models come with a 6-inch display with 167 ppi (pixels per inch). It is the smallest and lowest definition screen of the group.

White paper templates are a step up. All three have a 6.8-inch screen at 300 ppi. This is the highest resolution you can currently get on a Kindle reader. But if you want a slightly larger screen, the Oasis comes in at 7 inches.

Financial planning

Kindle Oasis used in the pool. Amazon Where the Kindle version really stands out is that it has more premium features. These factors can help you choose the right Kindle for you. Do you like to read in the bath or swimming pool? Waterproofing may be important to you. The three Paperwhite and Oasis models have an IPX8 rating. The standard Kindle version does not have a waterproof case.

Although all breeds have back pain, not all are the same. In addition to the brightness differences mentioned above, the Paperwhite and Oasis models can adjust the color temperature of the light. The light can be warm, which can be gentle on the eyes. In addition, the signature edition of the Oasis has automatic lighting. Design-wise, there is one big difference between the standard Kindle model and the Paperwhite and Oasis models. The Kindle-style screen fits under the bezels. However, on the Paperwhite and Oasis models, it rotates, just like the smart screen.

Finally, the Paperwhite Signature Edition is the only model with wireless charging. The Paperwhite model is also the only one with a USB-C port for charging, while the others still use microUSB. Oasis is the only model with a page changer button.

What about children’s editions?

Children read Kindle Kids Edition. Amazon As you may have noticed, children’s publications have the same functions as their non-children’s counterparts. So what happens to these children’s editions? There are two differences in the children’s edition. First, they have a very small design and they come with your choice of protection in many colors and designs. Children use devices, so durability improvements are included.

In addition to the stronger design, the children’s edition also benefits from an additional year of support. It’s another way to make sure your kids don’t make you regret buying them e-readers. For peace of mind. Other than that, Children’s Edition is really one of the standard types. They only have permanent designs in other colors.

Which one is for you?

Kindle as canvas bag with phone and sunglasses. Amazon The question now is which one should you buy? We think the Kindle Paperwhite series is the best for most people. You get most of the advanced features, but the Paperwhite is only $50 more than the barebones Kindle, at $140.

If you really want to showcase your Kindle in the future, a signature edition is a great step. It has an adjustable temperature display, wireless charging for added convenience, and 32GB of storage. It’s something else.

For readers who consume books and want the best, the Kindle Oasis starts at $250 and has everything the Signature Edition has, plus a bigger screen and a page flip button. Oasis goes up to $300 for 32GB of free media. Kids Kindle is probably the best choice for most kids. It’s only $50, so it’s a great entry into the world of eReaders. If you’re worried about them damaging your Kindle in the water, you’ll want to spend another $100 on the Kindle Paperwhite Kids.
