Kindle Paperwhite : My All-Time Favourite E-Book Reader

10 months ago Cover Photo

Some people have said that Ebook Readers are the future. There are many people who accept this word and do not accept it. In the near future, humans will start talking about the environment. At that time, they will criticize using the many papers too much. About things you no longer use and books you no longer read, and how much clutter and space they take up in your home. How much damage can this material cause to the environment? However, this period will be a long time coming.

Recently popular among young people is a simple and compact lifestyle called minimalism. Throw away what you don't need, buy only what you need, and keep only useful things at home. It is a kind of daily living that includes requirements such as the minimum need to be clear and the most important to make the daily life tidy.

I am a person who collects books. A young man who likes to read and is crazy about touching and reading books. But as the years passed, I got more and more books. And I no longer like the books I liked when I was young. Some books I don't want to read anymore. I realized that some books were no longer valuable enough for me to keep. There are so many books that if you want something, it's hard to find it. And the bookshelf in my house takes up too much space. Sometimes I think it would be good if these books and bookshelves were gone.

Then one day I read a post about the E-book Reader on social media. Loved it, I bought a Kindle Paperwhite and used it. So today I will not review the Kindle Paperwhite only from the technical side, and I will review it with the feel of the product in my hand. I am going to share my experience as a user who used this little device and how it is useful in my daily life.

The Specifications and How it Make My Daily Life Easier

The screen is 6.8" and the bezel is small, and it's light and compact in the hand, so it's convenient to take it anywhere. The main concern before buying is that it doesn't taste like paper and it looks like looking in a big mirror. But it's totally fine. I think the advantage of Kindle is that if you adjust the level of brightness correctly, you get the full feeling of reading a paper. I've tried to use other Android Ebook Readers but it doesn't give me better feeling or the real taste of reading books. Knowledge of truth and the taste that it is just a glass screen is disturbing. The Kindle doesn't have that feeling at all, I really like it.

Also, I'm worried about touching my eyes. I don't want to wear glasses yet. Surprisingly, even after reading it for hours straight, I couldn't bear to close my eyes at all. I am quite pleased. Under the sun, it is completely dim and unreadable, and at night, you can choose whether to keep it warm or cold, which is completely amazing.

The best part is that the battery lasts a long time. They say they last up to 10 weeks. But for me, 1 month is enough. It is quite satisfying to only charge once in 1 month. If I need it, I can charge it from the powerbank only for a while, so sometimes I forget to charge it or check the battery.

Other things I appriate

Being waterproof is quite convenient, it will be fine even it was not included, but now I can safely take it anywhere. Also, the storage is 8 GB, which is exactly enough for me. I also liked that USB TYPE C was used for charging. Since my laptop is also USB C, there is no need to buy an extra cable. Also, since it is integrated with the Amazon Book Store, you can easily buy books, which saves you a lot of time.

The Things I don't Like

The fonts are not perfect for languages except English, and there are few options for the style. So I need to add manually and it takes my time too much. I felt it is a little expensive. And browsing is not smooth so I don't use it. But these are not too uncomfortable, so I really recommend those who are going to start using them.

I don't want to argue that it doesn't taste as good as paper. Chips, batteries, and electronic devices destroy the environment even more than paper.

This is your own feeling and choice, because now the word "environmental protection" comes from businessmen I still see it as marketing. So I'd like to say it not that it's better than the other options, but I am sure it's a product that makes your daily life easier.

It's very useful for those who don't want to carry a book with them wherever they go, either reading while waiting for someone. If you have a little time, you can read books easily in Kindle. But if It is a weekend, you can hold the book, taste the smell of the papers, and read it in your bed.
