While it costs a little more than the previous model and doesn't look much different, the new Kindle Paperwhite (2018) is more durable, fully dunkable, and ultimately a nice upgrade.
While not as lightweight as the original Kindle Oasis, the larger screen, more durable aluminum chassis and full waterproofing are important upgrades that put the new Oasis at the top of the e-reader class.
The Kobo Aura One may not make you want to ditch your Kindle, but it does have some differentiating features that make it worth considering if you are in search of a non-Amazon e-reader.
The Kindle itself is a smashing piece of kit, but Amazon's digital bookstore just isn't ready for us to invest in. Using competing bookstores with the Kindle isn't possible and we couldn't find a single one of the 15 books we searched for. Grudgingly, we have to recommend more flexible ebook readers, despite the Kindle's impressive capabilities
The Kindle Paperwhite gets an HD screen, and while it isn't as big an upgrade as you'd think, it's a welcome addition, incrementally enhancing the Kindle reading experience.
If you don't mind the high price, the Kindle Oasis is the best e-reader you can buy today.
The Kobo Glo is an excellent Kindle alternative, especially for readers seeking EPUB compatibility and international options.
Multi-touch makes e-reading easier than ever but a sluggish interface means the Amazon Kindle Touch isn’t cut out for speed reading.
This is the best ebook reader in the world right now. Providing you can spare more than £100 to read books, you won't be disappointed.
The addition of a touchscreen makes the 5-inch Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 a very slick little ebook reader.
The Cybook impresses with its relatively low price and great quality screen. There's room for improvement, however, as the eBook navigation and library functionality are not as good as those of its rivals
The Interead Cool-er has decent format support and a good screen, but it's outclassed in nearly every department by the Sony Reader PRS-505. As they cost roughly the same, it's hard to see why anyone would choose the Cool-er
The ViewSonic VEB612 is small and light, and its design is quite attractive, but the software is far too buggy for us to recommend this device at the moment, especially given its high price tag. We'd advise those looking for a similar-sized ebook reader to check out one of Sony's models instead
The affordable e-book reader brings touch to its latest low-end, bargain-basement model.
The iLiad has the best screen we've ever seen for text and impressively long battery life. The asking price, however, will be too high for most, and the device's software needs to be improved before we could truly recommend it. At present it's good, but not quite as good as it should be
The affordable Kobo Mini is a likable touch-screen e-ink e-reader that's too small for some and not quite small enough for others.
Kobo's new e-book reader is designed for reading in the bath, by the pool or waiting grimly in the rain for your bus.
Ever wanted a device that can let you read books, listen to music and record voice memos? Chances are you probably haven't. But, if you have, then the iriver Story may be the gadget for you. And, as it happens, it's actually a pretty good ebook reader into the bargain
