How to Choose the Right Kindle Size 

Choosing the right Kindle size isn’t always easy. However, there are a few factors that you need to consider before deciding on the type of Kindle to purchase from the Kindle store. 

Storage size. 

If you have thousands of books and audio books to study then you need that extra storage. Amazon Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite storage space range from 4 GB to 32 GB. If the kindle e-book reader has an allowance for expandable storage, that could be a great exclusive feature. Select the Kindle that suits you best. 

Screen display size. 

The inch screen display size range from a 6-inch screen to a 9.7-inch screen for Kindle Keyboard (3Gen) WiFi + 3G and Kindle DX (2Gen) Graphite respectively. For kids, the 6-inch screen works perfectly and will require a kid-friendly cover to protect the Kindle from breaking. For adults or persons with eyesight problems, the larger screen display works perfectly. 

Screen resolution. 

In fact, there is a wide range of screen resolutions to choose from. For example, Kindle Paperwhite’s (2021) screen resolution is 1600 * 1200 px or (294 pixels per inch) and Kindle’s (2021) screen resolution is 1448 * 1072 px or (300 pixels per inch).
