🤡 Lots of viewers asked me about e-book readers, and here’s the Kindle Paperwhite device. The device is lightweight, easy to use and come with a long lasting battery, it supports IPX8 water resistant, and the battery is amazing, and I’ll discuss it later. The device is made from high quality plastic. The frame is curved to make it easier to hold it in hand.
The front is made form glass with black bezels all around the device. The screen is unreflective 8.6″ with 300ppi density, it uses the E-Ink technology, which consumes less power and is comfortable for eyes. The screen performs well under direct sunlight since it uses E-Ink not LEDs. A single charge lasts for days or weeks. The device is only for reading books, and it supports different languages, Arabic is one of them! 🤫
The device comes with a browsers that offer limited functionalities. The UI is very simple. It has a store for e-books. You can use this store to download audio and regular books. There are free and paid books, and the prices of the books varies. Some authors give users samples of these books, others don’t. You can download books from outside the store, but it is a bit complicated.
But the Amazon library is full of books in different languages. Amazon offers paid subscription to download books. This Kindle device offers different ways of installing books. You can download books using the browser of even transferring them using the Micro USB cable. You can also send books via emails with supported formats like .text, .pdf and so on. You can view and download different documents on it.
The device comes with 8GB of storage, which is enough. The device supports WiFi and bluetooth, and you can connect it to an external speaker. This will help you to listen to audio books, which are also supported on this device. The Kindle’s keyboard support English, Arabic among many other languages.
The price starts from 75 USD, Users in KSA and Egypt can benefit from the Amazon services,.but in some countries, the prices will be different, even here in Morocco🇲🇦. In some stores, here, the prices are doubled. But if you decide to get from abroad, it’ll be more expensive. Make sure to find the best price before you decide to buy it.
To whom this device is targeted? it is targeted for those who prefer not to carry physical books in their bags. You can store hundreds of books on this device. The device offers a similar experience to reading from physical books because of the technology of the screen.
Let’s now discuss the pros and cons of this device, The screen is eye-friendly even at the night. It supports water resistant, which is great for different weathers, and since the battery last longer, the device will keep asking you to subscribe to Amazon services. I wished the bezels were smaller. It doesn’t come with a USB-C port. It has a Micro USB port instead.
However, the battery charges fast, but it is hard to find this cable these days. I wished it supported wireless charging, which would have been very convenient. To protect my investment, I had to buy a cover for the device form abroad. I could find a cover for this device here in Morocco 🇲🇦. You have to protect your investing by using a cover with it.
