Best Kindle for reading manga [2022 Edition]

There is a rule of thumb for reading manga: The bigger the screen, the better. Mangas are typically printed on large format paperbacks

As a result, a large screen gives the most immersive experience. In this post, I’ll help you choose the best kindle variant for manga needs…

LET’S Start with Paperwhite

New Kindle Paperwhite

reading one piece on kindle

Kindle paperwhite was released in late 2021. The biggest selling point of this device is its high-resolution 300ppi display with a screen size of 6.8″ (inches) screen whereas other models are stuck at 6″ screens…

Personally, I use a new kindle paperwhite. I read several mangas on it (to name a few Boruto, One Piece, Naruto)

Paperwhite comes with two storage variants;

  1. Kindle Paperwhite Standard
  2. Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition

  • Storage: 8 GB or 16 GB
  • Auto-adjusting light: No
  • Wireless charging: No
  • Ads: Choice
Signautre Edition
Signautre Edition
  • Storage: 32 GB
  • Auto-adjusting light: Yes
  • Wireless charging: Yes
  • Ads: No

Tbh, there isn’t any significant difference between the two versions. So, I’d recommend you go with the standard version.

But…

If you want to keep a lot of manga (About 500 Volumes) on your e-reader, then you should opt for the Signature edition due to its 32 GB storage…

Or…

If you consistently change locations while reading (I do this a lot), then you should get the signature model due to its automatic light sensor feature.

You can check this for a detailed comparison between both variants.

The Pros

  • Large high-resolution screen perfect for reading manga
  • A fast processor makes for a snappy experience
  • Only Kindle USB-C Connectivity

The Cons

  • No page turn buttons
  • The screen is a little bit smaller than Oasis

Kindle Oasis – 2019 Release

kindle oasis

Kindle Oasis was launched way back in 2019. Unlike Signature Edition, this model doesn’t come in two different varieties…

The Kindle Paperwhite has a 7-inch display with 300 PPI, making it the perfect size for reading manga (Advantage)

It comes up with page turn buttons that make it easier to switch pages while reading. Additionally, the large bezels make it easier to hold as compared to paperwhite.

The Pros

  • Huge 7-inch display with 300 PPI
  • Page turn buttons make it
  • Large Bezels

The Cons

  • Micro USB (slow charging as compared to Paperwhite)
  • It’s a bit pricey + Old model

Our recommendation (Time to Make a decision)

If you’re looking for the best Kindle device to read manga, then we recommend you go with New Kindle Paperwhite because of its large high-resolution screen and snappy processor.

However, if you want a device with page turn buttons, and a large screen then you should get the Kindle Oasis.
