This review is from: Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 5th) (Electronics)
My son bought me a Nextbook (must be an off brand) at a discount store, were things that are outdated go to be sold. It got me hooked with all the apps you can get, but it must have been and older model because I had all kinds of trouble with it. I decided to buy another device. What to buy? I did some research. Asked friends. I was told to stay away from the, kindle Fire, the Samsung was good but the dealer was pushing Google's Nexus 7. I bought the Samsung and had more problems with it, not that it was bad, but it had all these features and apps that you have to log on to and create accounts with pass words to operate everything, it drove me crazy. I returned it and bought the Kindle (my first choice). I found out I didn't need something that has a 100 apps like a Smart phone or Ipad. I don't need to watch TV, stream viedos, down load music, tweet, surf the net or play games or face book or text. I just wanted to read my books. So I bought the kindle, can't get andy better than this. Create an Amazon account (very simple), put a couple of gift cards in it (so you don't have to worry about using your credit card every time) and shop for books. Hit the one stop shop button and it down loads via your internet in seconds. Can't say enough, the quality is great, the cost is inexpensive, stores tons of books, should I keep going? If you want something without a lot of bells and whistles buy the kindle or kindle touch. it comes with all the functions you'll need. Besides, after reading a book I have a life to get back too and it dosen't involve texting every 2 minutes. The Kindle is great for its purpose, can't say any more than that.
