Other than those two improvements that’s about all they did improve on them. The resolution is the same and the size is the same as last year’s paperwhite.

I heard the Kindle has the better OS/Build quality.sarah57 wrote: ↑ I have an older Kobo and I'm thinking about giving it to my daughter. Anyone have experience with both Kobo/Kindle? I was thinking about just getting another Kobo for myself, but I don't know if there's any real advantage over getting a Kobo over a Kindle. Kobo is a Canadian company and I want to support them - but also, things are tight right now and the last time I checked it was $140 for the cheapest Kobo I could find in BestBuy.

yes i think the previous version only had 4gb, i suppose that would be a big difference between 4gb and 8gb but ebooks are small and 4gb is still plenty for me.VillageIdiot wrote: ↑ I have one of these.
The big change is waterproofing and comes with either 8gb or 32gb internal storage.
Don't bother with the 32gb unless you read a lot of comics/manga. You can fit thousands of regular e-books on the 8gb model.
If you're planning on uploading your own manga, make sure to use Kindle Comic Converter. It will re-size your manga to fit the Kindle's resolution. By doing so, it'll reduce the file size to around 70-100mb per volume (depending on the number of pages).
This model also has the much faster OS for manga. I'm not sure if this update is also present in the older gen Kindles.
Just a note though, the screen for this model is only 6". That can still be small for manga. I still have to zoom in at times depending on how small the texts are. I'd recommend the Oasis instead if you're planning on reading lots of manga.

Kindle doesn't use epub files but it's easy to convert them to .kindle files using the Calibre ebook manager software (completely free).
