Now that almost all paper books are out on a flowing screen that stops us sleeping are totally in, you are probably used to hearing the word Kindle used as a synonym for e-book readers, but there are options available.

Now that almost all paper books are out on a flowing screen that stops us sleeping are totally in, you are probably used to hearing the word Kindle used as a synonym for e-book readers, but there are options available.
 
Enter Kobo’s latest effort. It is a premium e-reader that packs enough decent hardware to make it a serious Kindle competitor.  The new Kid on the block in what could easily be the battle of the century. Read on to and decide which device is better.
 
When it comes for the design that has a big impact on readers.  It is obvious that you will be holding the device for a long time. Therefore, Amazon studied much of these facts before it launched and made sure that the Kindle Oasis was extolling the virtues of its fine balance.  The design has not changed much from the first version. The Paperwhite is all matte-black (or white) plastic with a soft – touch finish.
 
Only the size of the somewhat large bezel around the screen has had some changes on hold-ability. The Kobo’s alternative is not available in the market but it was rumored that new device will have metal trim and are thin and slightly upgraded than Paperwhite.
 
There is an alternative Kindle Voyage that we could compare to Kindle Paperwhite
 

 
Even though all are fine, the weight is the important issue that one has to think about it at the time of purchase.  The weight will make the biggest difference when it comes to holding it.
 
There is 205g for the Wi-Fi version and 217g for the 3G models, the Kindle is easy to hold for a long time.  Also Kindle dimensions it measures 169mm x117mm and 9.1mm thick. While the Kobo measures 195.1mm x138.5mm just slightly thinner at 6.9mm with a larger screen and weighs 226g, this new device has not been tested yet. Just because of the weight it will be hard to hold for long time. 
 

Kindle Oasis
 
If you use these devices it is not a bad idea to see this one as well.
One thing that you should be aware of is the lack of page-turning buttons
Which is somewhat a disappointing. All navigation on Amazon’s e-reader is handled with touchscreen and works perfectly well. Where the Voyage has a dedicated page turn buttons.  And it looks like the Aura One also does not   have turning buttons
Of course, this should not be decision-making fact.
