Kindle Or Tablet : Know Which Device Suits You The Best.

Differences and similarities between Kindle and other tablets

Broadly speaking, the gadgets have similarities: Internet connectivity, link to virtual stores (App Store and Play Store on a tablet, and Amazon on Kindle), choice of water-resistant models such as Kindle Oasis or Galaxy Tab S4, as well as being more or less the same industrial format. Although tablets may be larger with 10-inch displays and Kindle only 6- and 7-inch options.

For reading: Kindle or another e-reader

An advantage of Kindle over other e-book readers is the e-ink screen. They are black and white displays that do not emit light, such as on the LCD or OLED of the tablet and seek to mimic the appearance of a printed paper by means of technology that effectively prints text and images on the screen from the control of a type of magnetized ink. The result is very close to what you would experience if you were flipping through a real book.

The inclusion of e-ink technology does not tire the eyes, even after long periods of reading. This issue sets an important point in favor of the Kindle and its competitors: they are ideal appliances for those who read a lot and usually face long sessions.

E-readers also add value to the reading experience.

When connected to the Internet, these devices give access to links that complement the reading of the book, access encyclopedias, and dictionaries, allow users to mark passages of the works they like best and even share them on social networks, store thousands of books in a single device, read PDF files and other formats with convenience.

E-ink screens also not consume much power to function, thus saving a lot of battery on the device.

Apps, Games, and Video: tablet

Kindles and other e-readers are gaining more and more complex functions and systems, but there are limitations: unlike the iPad or an Android tablet, an e-reader has no apps store, ability to play sound (in newer models) or many interactivity options. Usually, the uses are limited to buying, reading and organizing the library.

In contrast to that, tablets have the ability to read books. Both Google and Apple offer titles in their online stores and there are several reading apps on both platforms, including the Kindle app.

At the same time, they allow you to install social networking applications, games, apps to enjoy movies and series, read and respond to messages and emails. Here, the screen that is not ideal to read ends up guaranteeing other benefits, since it fits in a much greater range of uses than the act of reading.

Tablets also offer colorful displays, which may be interesting for comics and graphic novels, something not normally seen on the Kindle.
The LCD and OLED screens found on tablets of all types and prices are also a factor that explains the power consumption of the tablet, much higher than that of an e-reader. In addition, in general, tablets have larger screens and more size options.

The best of both worlds?

If you are looking for a device that is primarily an e-book reader, then the Kindle is the best option you have. You will be able to do other things, but the main thing would be reading books. Whereas a normal tablet would do a host of tasks with perfection with reading e-books, not the main forte. Kindle Tech Support
