Do not forget that I purchased this Kindle tenth gen in Dec 2021?
You may’t now not purchase Kindle tenth gen from Kindle Malaysia however they now supply this new primary Kindle 11th gen (2022) version as a substitute or Kindle Paperwhite 5 (2021) (eleventh Gen). You may most likely purchase cheaper ones from different retailers (however I can not say, I purchased mine from Kindle Malaysia as a result of they had been reliable and their help workforce is dependable). Please perform a little research if you wish to purchase from different sellers ya.
Right here I made a comparability between these present 2 fashions in 2023:
With adverts/with out adverts:
What is the distinction between ‘with adverts’ and ‘with out adverts’? Simply that in the course of the Kindle is idle (whereas not used on lock display), it should present a promo image of books, that is it. Not annoying, not intrusive, similar to a poster of books that is it. So, for me, I haven’t got any drawback with the adverts (besides when it exhibits some hunky-body duds in random romance e book adverts). It appears to be like one thing like this:
With casing/with out casing:
For those who purchase the casing from Kindle Malaysia (+add on), it will likely be a little bit bit costly. You should purchase it wherever from Shopee as a substitute. Extra choices and less expensive, the one I purchased is round RM 35 and it really works high-quality till now.
The “free 1 million Kindle eBooks from Reader Library for six months” supply: Properly, not one of the books listed had been fascinating sufficient for me so I did not even make the most of that. Principally classics lit, and already free on public area books.
My ideas on my Kindle:
Mine is Kindle tenth Gen (2019) –
I purchased my Kindle for RM 495 in Dec 2021 (now the brand new Kindle begins from RM 650). It’s 6”, with a 167 ppi display, and weighs 174g. The storage is barely 8 GB however that may retailer as much as 2 thousand books (I feel it’s greater than sufficient) plus they provide cloud storage on Amazon. For those who solely learn half an hour per day, the battery can last as long as a month. However these days my battery can solely final round 2-3 weeks, even much less if I hearken to an audiobook. I can’t play audiobooks on the gadget itself however I would like to attach it to any Bluetooth earphone or speaker.
It’s gentle and sufficiently small for me. I may even put it in my back-pocket denims or a small purse. I like the dimensions, it takes so little house in my life. The battery lasts lengthy too, simple to journey and I can carry bookstores in all places (which is at all times good, however not money-wise lah). Oh, Amazon additionally at all times affords cheaper digital books and books on promos. I purchased quite a lot of low-cost books for $0.99 – $1.99. It is usually really easy to purchase a e book, simply one-click whenever you already linked it together with your debit/bank card (Sofi by accident purchased so many books previously) however canceling and getting the refund is straightforward sufficient, simply be sure to do not flip off the e-mail notification.
My Kindle vs the newest Kindle: double the storage, greater decision, barely lighter, with adjustable temperature gentle and improved battery life.
Do you have to purchase it? It relies upon, in the event you actually need an e-reader, primary Kindle is a very sensible choice. I’ve by no means tried or in contrast it with different e-readers aside from iPad so I can not say a lot concerning the comparability. I did not like studying on iPad (it makes my eyes damage). Studying on Kindle is rather like studying on paper, much less pressure on the eyes, no glare, and you do not have to put on blue-light glasses.
Positive, it isn’t the identical as bodily books – I do know! However it’s a good choice if you find yourself disadvantaged of fine books, bodily books are loopy costly these days. Not each one can spend RM 50 – RM 80 on every newest fiction, and at an obsessive reader’s charge, think about how a lot we have to spend every month simply to entertain our curious minds? So e-books it’s.
