Amazon is best known as the “everything store,” where you can order apparel, electronics, and a hundred more products in just a few clicks but don’t you know that the company has built up a stable of really great in-house devices too?
Amazon devices helped kickstart mainstream interest on e-readers, smart-device-speakers, or for those who just wanted pure entertainment. We list down the best Amazon devices and its function to help you decide on what to buy next!
Best Amazon Devices For Reading
1. Kindle Paperwhite
The improvements Amazon made to create the latest generation Kindle Paperwhite make it the best e-reader based on price and performance. It has a six-inch 300dpi (dots per inch) e-ink display with a resolution high enough that the text looks incredibly crisp.
The screen technology Amazon uses also significantly reduces glare, so it’s a lot easier to read in broad daylight. Amazon designed the Kindle Paperwhite with five backlights, which illuminate the screen so you can read at night without a bedside lamp. Aside from these, Kindle Paperwhite is also dust-proof and waterproof enough to survive to be in up to 1m (3.3ft) of water for up to 30 minutes. If you frequently read in the bathtub, or by the pool, then this one is for you!
2. Kindle Oasis
For a truly luxe digital reading experience, Amazon’s Kindle Oasis is the way to go. It has all of the same great features as the Paperwhite, weeks of battery, a 300dpi e-ink display, two storage options, an IP67 durability rating, and a lot more extra features!
It has two physical page turn buttons, so you don’t have to tap or swipe the screen to continue reading, and a built-in grip, which makes it easier to hold with one hand. It’s a little bit expensive than the Paperwhite, but if you want an enhanced digital reading experience, you can always opt for this one.
Best Amazon Devices For Music
3. Echo Dot
Amazon’s Echo Dot (3rd Gen) succeeds in being an excellent entry point for people who want to start or expand their smart home because it has virtually no compromises, and comes in a small size.
The Dot’s key feature is its four microphones, which allow you to interact with Alexa, Amazon’s smart assistant. She enables you to use the Echo Dot to control smart-home accessories like light bulbs, plugs, thermostats, and even robot vacuums. You can also use Alexa to set timers, get answers to questions, stream music, or use the Echo Dot as an intercom throughout your home. All those features for an affordable price too!
4. Amazon Echo
If you’re interested in a smart-home hub that’s also a pretty good speaker, Amazon’s Echo (3rd Gen) is your best choice. It has eight microphones instead of four, so it’ll be able to pick up your voice from further away or isolate it in a louder room. It stands 5.8 inches wide and 3.9 inches across. Aesthetically, the Echo looks identical to the smaller Dot, and it has the same Alexa functionality, but Amazon used its extra height to build in a much better audio system.
