What are the criteria for choosing an e-reader?
Before you decide on purchasing a Kindle e-reader, we recommend that you consider the following:
- The Screen: Kindle screens typically range in size from 6 to 7 inches. As for the resolution, it varies from 167 to 300 dpi.
- Dimensions: If you travel or move around a lot, you can opt for the more compact model, the dimensions of which are 160 x 113 x 8.7 mm.
- Storage capacity: It varies from 4 GB (for Kindle Basic and Travel) to 8 – 32 GB (for Kindle Oasis and Paperwhite). Note that 4 GB can store around 3000 books.
