With the never-ending debate of physical books vs Kindle, I constantly found myself gravitating more towards a physical book. But it's the era of decluttering, minimalism, protecting trees, going paperless that has transmuted my opinion now. Also, ordering books online or buying from a store is less favoured amid this pandemic.

If you are unfamiliar to the world of Kindles, then here are the five features to look at before investing in one.


The Screen Size And Budget

You have both 6 inches, and 7 inches Kindles available in the market. If you are someone who reads a lot, then opt for a smaller display because that will also be lighter to hold for long hours. Budget wise you have three types: Basic Amazon Kindle, Paperwhite and Oasis, if you opt for larger storage or graphite or Champagne gold body, the prices differ accordingly.


Storage

Your in-built storage is crucial, notably if you are someone who reads multiple books in a month. From 8 to 32 Gb inbuilt storage kindles also come with free cloud storage for all your content. However, a basic of 8GB is good enough to hold thousands of books.


Connectivity

Initially, Kindle started with only Wi-Fi connectivity, but the latest one also has Wi-Fi and 3G network. Who is that important for? The frequent traveller who prefers uninterrupted downloads even outside the Wi-Fi range. Nevertheless, you can download your books and read them offline.


Waterproof

This feature is mainly beneficial for bookworms who love reading while lazing around in the pool or in their bathtub. It's also good if your kids are going to be using it.

  

Built-In Front Light

Some Kindles come with built-in soft light rather than the harsh backlight on phones or LCD devices. Built-in lights help you read in the dark without causing severe eye strain. Kindles are also readable in bright sunlight due to their glare-free screen. The pricier the Kindle, the more LED front light it bears, thus enhancing your reading experience.
