Kindle is only a digital ebook reader. You won’t be able to make or receive calls, chat, email, or other things you could do with an iPad.
So, this is your choice. Do you want a device that serves as a book reader only? Do you want a distraction-free reading? Are you looking for an e-reader that gives you the experience of reading printed books? Yes, then go for Kindle.
Are you looking for a device that can multitask, from reading books and making calls to playing games and sending emails? Yes, go for Apple iPad.
But many persons in my circle complain of headaches and eye strain when reading on iPad. I’ve also experienced the same when reading on Samsung Galaxy Tab A8.4.
I personally like “no distraction” and the battery life of Kindle e-readers. I can carry it around with me in my purse without worrying about cracking its screen. It’s so convenient.
Now which is better for the eyes – Kindle or iPad? Kindle e-readers use e-ink, a type of paper display technology that mimics ink on a page. So, they cause less strain on the eyes compared to screens of iPads, tablets, and smartphones.
What are your thoughts? Would you buy a Kindle if you already have an iPad?
