7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Amazon Kindle Touch - 4th Gen

Heavier

The Amazon Kindle Touch - 4th Gen is a 191g E-book reader. That's 22g lighter than the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen (213g), 30g heavier than the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 8th Gen (161g), 17g heavier than the Kobo Aura (174g) and 25g heavier than the Kobo Clara HD (166g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the e-reader, measured in grams (g).

A lighter device will be easier to carry around, and mean it can be held and read for longer without it getting uncomfortable to hold.

Only 800 X 600 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Amazon Kindle Touch - 4th Gen has a display resolution of 800 x 600 pixels pixels (as is the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 8th Gen), but the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen and the Kobo Aura have a display resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels and the Kobo Clara HD has a display resolution of 1448 x 1072 pixels. More ...

'Display Resolution' denotes how many pixels make up the display of the e-reader.

A larger display resolution means that the text will be sharper and clearer, making it easier to read books on the device, and reducing the chances of eye-strain after long sessions.

4GB Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The Amazon Kindle Touch - 4th Gen has an internal storage capacity of 4GB (as do the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 8th Gen and the Kobo Aura), whereas the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen is a 2GB internal storage capacity E-book reader (2GB smaller) and the Kobo Clara HD is an 8GB internal storage capacity E-book reader (4GB bigger). More ...

'Internal Storage Capacity' denotes how much space the device has to store books and other media, measured in megabytes (Mb).

A larger internal storage capacity means the e-reader can hold more books and media at once.

Significantly Smaller Battery Life

The Amazon Kindle Touch - 4th Gen has a battery life of 1h, whereas the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen and the Kobo Aura are both 1,440h battery life E-book readers (96h bigger), the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 8th Gen is a 1,010h battery life E-book reader (334h smaller) and the Kobo Clara HD is a 1,340h battery life E-book reader (4h smaller). More ...

How long the e-reader will last on a single charge, measured in hours.

A longer battery life means that you will be able to read for longer before needing to recharge the battery - this makes the e-reader for more useful to take on holidays or long journeys.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Amazon Kindle Touch - 4th Gen has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 8th Gen scored 88 and the Kobo Clara HD scored 86.

Less Retailers

Only 2 retailers sells the Amazon Kindle Touch - 4th Gen, whereas 4 retailers sell the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 8th Gen, 3 sellers sell the Kobo Aura and 7 retailers sell the Kobo Clara HD. More ...
