Elif, Coburg

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Wonderful product, l like carrying it with me wherever I go. I can carry countless books and documents in my kindle, this made life easier for me. I can recommend this product to everyone
Bad points:
I would prefer to have the screen paperwhite and with high contrast, with this kindle contrast is not strong, and white of the screen is not %100 bright. However I'm still happy with my purchase as low contrast screen is not hurting my eyes, and perhaps this is a better option for a person who has eye and migraine pains
