Amazon's Kindle range of ebook readers has been a great success. Since the launch of the device, the digital publication sector has seen an immense growth as well.
The convenience of having as many books as we want on one device and not worry about the battery life is just a relief for any hardcore reader. But with so many Kindle ebook readers on the market which one should you buy? Let us help you decide.
The real debate when it comes to books and publications is why would someone want to use a digital copy over real paperback versions. With ebooks, we have the capability to store a number of books on our devices. If the texts seem too small, you can increase the size of the font, or even change the font itself.
In the current times when everything revolves around smartphones and tablets, people prefer the convenience of keeps books stored in the cloud or on their devices, rather than waste space at home with a bookshelf.
The Kindle Oasis
Meet Amazon's flagship model to the Kindle devices. And the name gives justice to the reader too, as it is a dream come true for every bookworm in terms of specifications and features. The Kindle Oasis has a 6-inch display that is housed in the slimmest design ever to come to a Kindle.
The Oasis has a palm grip which makes it comfortable to hold while also being the battery pack for this device. It powers the light-weight device along the LED lights and the Wi-Fi chipset for connectivity.
The reason for its high price is justified for the leather case that straps onto the Oasis and extends the battery life from weeks to months. This device is truly for those who want to read while on the move and no worry about any battery hassles.
The Kindle Voyage
The Voyage is the second costliest model and it almost feels similar to the Oasis in specifications. Though it differs in design, the Voyage has the same 6-inch high res display as the Oasis and the same battery life of weeks (you don't have the luxury of the leather battery case here).
But its unique slim design comes with a haptic feedback, as Amazon calls 'PagePress' that allows you to turn pages with just a light touch on the edges even while you're holding the device.
The Kindle Voyage lies between the Kindle Paperwhite and Oasis, investing a little more money can definitely get you the flagship model.
The Kindle Paperwhite
Amazon's most successfully selling Kindle for the past few months is no doubt the Paperwhite. The Paperwhite was Amazon's first attempt at bringing night reading to its customers, and it works great. Being a 6-inch e-ink screen, it still gives 300 PPI of resolution just like Oasis and Voyage. Texts are crisp and the screen does not cause a strain even with the brightness turned up.
The Kindle Paperwhite is best suited for night owls who would spend time reading their books than message people and browse the social media pages. You can get the device for more than half the price of the Kindle Oasis and Voyage.
The Kindle (basic)
The cheapest Kindle for any beginner user, it costs only for Rs 6,000. The 6-inch display is great for outdoor reading, the battery lasts for weeks and you can access all your books even through the cloud.
The base model of Amazon's ebook reader can be for those who want to read while they travel, and keep themselves busy. Those who just enjoy reading the book and don't care about the awesome features of the Kindle Paperwhite, Voyage or Oasis can buy this without any second thoughts.
