Hey guys, welcome back to the channel.
If you're new here. My name is Ali.
I'm a junior doctor working in Cambridge.
And in this video, I'm going to be answering the age-old question of
whether an iPad Pro is better for reading
or whether an Amazon Kindle is the one that you should go for.
This is a question that has been plaguing philosophers
for thousands of years, but I'm hoping to answer it
for you as quickly as possible in this very short video.
So basically the answer is I would recommend a Kindle
for reading most things.
A Kindle is absolutely amazing because it looks
like you're actually reading on paper.
So this is the "Book of Bad Blood."
It is about Theranos, blood-testing startup that turned out to be
a bunch of lies, but it's a sort of book
that I'm going to be reading cover to cover.
It's a sort of book, I would read from start to finish and therefore
reading it on a Kindle is absolutely perfect because it looks like real paper,
it feels like reading an actual book.
And I've been using the Kindle to read about 99"00:00:43,600 --> 00:00:46,300 of the books I've read for the last like 10 plus years.
The only thing an iPad is good for in my opinion
when it comes to reading is for things like medical textbooks
where you want to be able to kind of scan it from page to page,
you want to be able to flick around,
you want to be able to grab your Apple Pencil
and maybe add some bits and bobs on your iPad.
That's the sort of thing that is just completely impossible to do with the Kindle.
So if the sort of reading you're going to be doing involves
actually reading cover to cover a hundred percent, you should get a Kindle.
Even if you have an iPad,
it's just a far better experience reading on a Kindle
because it looks like real paper, you can read it in bed,
it doesn't strain your eyes, the new Kindles are waterproof,
iPad is not waterproof.
The Kindle is cheap and light,
you can carry around wherever you go.
The iPad is not cheap.
It's kind of like, you can't sort of carry around,
it's a quite hard to use the iPad Pro one-handed.
You could use the iPad Mini one-handed,
but fundamentally reading on an iPad feels like reading on a screen
whereas reading on a Kindle feels like reading on real paper.
That completely sells the Kindle for me.
Like, if you if you want a device for reading you have to go for the Kindle.
If you want a device for browsing through textbooks
or PDFs or whatever and annotating them then the iPad is better.
I'll use both extensively whenever I go on holiday,
I take both the Kindle and the iPad Pro with me and people sometimes say:
"Oh, why are you carrying both devices can't you
just use the Kindle app on your phone to read?"
and yeah, you can, but it's just so so nice, reading on a Kindle.
Reading on the phone feels like, you know, I'm just looking at my phone.
So, I'd hundred percent recommend the Kindle.
In fact, I've made a couple of videos about this.
The Kindle is probably the second most valuable purchase
I've ever made in my life after the original camera
that I bought which kick-started my YouTube channel.
So, I've been a Kindle Fanboy
since like 2008 or something like that.
And that's only going to continue,
I've got hundreds of books on Kindle
and I automatically assign them to my Goodreads account when I'm reading,
so I can keep track of everything I've read.
I also have the Kindle app
on the iPad and it's all right on the iPad.
I sometimes you know, if I absolutely have to I would use the Kindle app
to read on the iPad, but it's just not as nice.
It's like reading on his screen rather than reading on paper.
So yeah, that's pretty much it.
If you want to read and you should get a Kindle.
If you have an iPad but don't have a Kindle.
I would still probably recommend you buy the Kindle
because it's just for a far better experience.
If you have a Kindle should you`re getting iPad?
Well, maybe, but not for reading purposes.
If you want to get an iPad, you should get an iPad
for all the other reasons to get an iPad.
The iPad is not a device very well suited for reading things cover to cover.
It's amazing for all sorts of other things.
So, that's pretty much it for the Kindle.
Kindle is amazing. I'll put an affiliate link in the description below.
So, if you buy it, I'll make like one percent commission from Amazon
for selling something from their website.
So yeah, thank you for watching the video.
If you liked it, please give it a thumbs up.
