  1. Finally a good video., not a comedy show some Youtubers been doing. Thanks for the direct opinion

  2. No locations for non-Amazon credit card payments in America or the West in a means of selling books, specifically?؟؟؟
    I hope to share with us sites that deal with the system (payoneer) if you can or even through the exchange, thank you very much.
    Good luck.

  3. Is the Kindle still so much better if you are reading at night and looking at the backlit e-ink display?
    I mean the iPads today have very high dpi, the display is directly laminated to the glass (so no air gap between display and glass) the contrast and black levels increased dramatically with the new ipads and for night reading you can switch to sepia page colors and even turn on night shift wich increases the yellow tint even more. That reduces blue light.
    On the other Hand the Kindle Paerwhite only has white/blue-ish backlight wich is the worst you can do to your eyes at night…
    I totally get that reading in bright daylight is FAR better with Kindle because of the e-ink display that reflects light like real paper. But at night? Doesn't it just look like a LCD with that white/blue backight? I guess an iPad with warm sepia light is just as good if not better at night. I've even read that the Paperwhite 4 (2018) has a worse screen than previous models (people say it's a bit less sharp and has less contrast) What do you think?

  4. Many thanks, I've been looking for "how to make an ebook for kindle" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Ronaflee Singular Remedy – (just google it )?

    It is an awesome one off guide for discovering how to create ebooks easily minus the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my brother in law got amazing results with it.

  5. Read textbooks on my laptop, read for fun on my kindle! Used to use my phone, but it totally reduced my eye strain and headaches! Plus, the kindle battery lasts FOREVER.

  6. I brought a kindle because of you 🙂

  7. Backlit, frontlit. Kindle. It's not even close.

  8. 前几天才买的paper white 4 后悔买晚了

  9. Omg I’ve been looking for this for soooo long

  10. This video is so helpful

  11. I’m thinking of buying a kindle or kobo ereader because my textbooks (PDFs) keep getting deleted off my iPad Pro on Apple “Books” app whenever I go offline. Then I redownload them again when I go on wifi again. It’s annoying, especially when I’m a student and I’m constantly reading my textbooks.

  12. straight to the point, appreciate it!

  13. I love my new kindle paper white I just bought. I got the 8gb one which holds about 6000 books. I highly doubt I’ll read that many in my lifetime. I love reading on the kindle! My eyes never hurt!! I have goodreads also. Add me if you like, I’m Mandy Groff. Girl with purple glasses in profile picture smiling. 🙂 Happy reading!

  14. Thought about getting a kindle, I am trying to go paperless but there is something about holding a book I can’t let go 🙂

  15. I used to read tons of novels on my Nokia phone before smartphones were invented. Now I prefer kindles over phones because they are far less distracting.

  16. I had the idea a junior doctor would enter into more details on why an IPS screen is not the best idea for your eyes and why a Kindle is much better not "because it looks like a book", but because the kindle screen doesnt refresh until you interact with it, so, one great difference is that the screen on the ipad is always refreshing and your eyes are getting all that information to your optic nerves, on the other hand a kindle screen doesnt refresh until u interact with it, so, when u say it looks like a book, the more detailed way would be to say, the image seems static when u read, and that's because it is. Kindles are amazing, are cheap and all you said too, other comparison would be between a kindle and an Amoled screen on a device like a Samsung phone or tablet, i love Amoled screens because the pixels in black are not turned on, so you can change the book to a dark mode and read white text on a black screen and both save battery life and get a much lower brightness hitting your eyes.

    This is a topic i dont see a lot of talk about and it's very important, i want to take care of my eyes, and have researched a lot to do so, but all this superficial information just bugs me,, anyways, your video is fine, i was just looking for more details.

  17. Plus the Kindle is definitely better in bright light, like near a pool or beach. That's the main reason I bought one. On vacation, I bring the iPad as a little computer; e-mail, web, photo apps, etc…. and even reading in the hotel room. But out in the sun, I need the Kindle.

  18. Another argument for the kindle is that you're not being distracted by some useless notifications…

  19. Thousands of years ?

  20. I prefer the kindle, but I've been using my ipad mini more lately because kindle lacks night lite mode – I wish it was possible to make it warmer, I feel the light is too cold when reading in dark

  21. When I keep my Echo dot on a rough surface, it gets dusty and scratchy. For protection and a unique look I applied an ebony wood skin from gadgetshieldz.

  22. At our place, in the last 10 years even having a real book was a great deal. It was like 'woah you can read'

  23. Surface tablet can beat an iPad at all the other tasks a kindle is unable to perform

  24. For reading medical books which one is better, kindle or iPad?
