Which Kindle to Buy in Singapore

Which Kindle to Buy in Singapore? Kindles Comparison

Kindle 7 Vs Kindle Paperwhite Vs Kindle Voyage

E-Ink Kindles Comparison


* Senses the light in your environment and changes the setting to the ideal brightness (as compared to choosing brightness manually in the Kindle Paperwhite)
** PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback will be provided. (as opposed to tapping/swiping on touchscreen to flip)

So, which one should I get?

Here, it really depends on your reading habit and we will distil it down to the main factors of consideration.

Do you read in the dark?

If yes, get the Paperwhite or Voyage as it has a built-in light that allows you to read in the dark.

If not, the Kindle 7/Basic will suffice.

Do you need a super HD screen?

The main difference between the Paperwhite and Voyage is that the Voyage has a super high resolution screen (300 vs 212 ppi).

This makes greyscale, images, and especially comics appear extremely clear on the Voyage. Therefore, get the Voyage if you intend to read comics or images.

If you are mostly doing normal reading, the Paperwhite’s screen is more than crisp and clear enough. You don’t really need a super HD screen for reading text.

Ultimately, consider whether it is worth playing another $130 for a higher resolution screen to read text. Our store would recommend the Paperwhite it provides the best compromise between features and price.

    please advise if you have stock for Voyage and how soon will the delivery be.

    please also advise on your shop address for self-collection, if possible.

    thanks and regards,
    may Lee

    I wish to inquire if the new Kindle Paperwhite 2015 (Version 3) is available at your store. If not, when might it be available?

    Kind regards,

      Hi Linda, if you read a lot, we would suggset that you get the Kindle paperwhite.

      It is the most popular model and comes with all the features that you need for prolonged reading at an affordable price.

    Would the kindle paper white be an ad or non-ad version?

    • Damon SG E-reader Shop Says: May 10, 2016 10:50 pm Reply

      Hi there, by default the Kindle that we sell comes with ads. However, these ads only shows as a screen saver and does not intrude at all on the reading experience. If you prefer the non-ads version, we also have that for an additional $20.
