E-ink or Fire

How are the E-ink Kindle and Kindle Fire different?

The main difference is that the E-Ink Kindle is a dedicated e-book reader while the Kindle Fire is essentially an Android tablet.

E-ink-or-Fire-Comparison

Which one should I get?

It ultimately depends on what you are using it for.

If you are buying a device just for reading, nothing beats E-ink Kindles (Basic/7, Paperwhite, and Voyage).

If you are getting a device for light reading, with the occasional multimedia usage of apps, movies or other content, then you should get the Kindle Fire – a more versatile tablet.

More detailed explanation of the differences:

Why E-Ink Kindles rock as dedicated e-book readers

i.e. Basic/7, Paperwhite, and Voyage

SCREEN

If you have ever read for an extended period off a monitor/tablet, you will be sure to experience discomfort in your eyes or even headache due to the bright light and glare of the LCD screen.

Rather than LCD screens, E-Ink Kindles use well, E-Ink screens that are designed specifically for comfort and ease on your eyes.

With no screen glare and sharp, dark text, they are meant to replicate the feel of reading a book. In that regard, it has succeeded; reading on the E-ink screen doesn’t feel very different from reading an actual book.

BATTERY LIFE

Thanks largely to the energy sipping E-ink screen technology, you can easily get a battery life of an astonishing 4-8 weeks on the E-Ink Kindles.

This means that you can lose yourself in the world of your book instead of fretting over the next charge, making it a perfect travelling companion.

WEIGHT

Weight is an important factor if you want to read comfortably for prolonged periods.
