On Amazon sg, I saw they are selling international version Paperwhite.

There are 8gb, 32gb and 32gb with free 4g LTE + WiFi. (Don't know how the free LTE works.)

On Qoo10, some sellers bundle their Kindle with 8000 free ebooks.

Which do you recommend?

After some research, realised no way to load MP3s into the Audible folder. Well, simple solution for MP3 ebooks borrowed from NLB, just load into my phone and listen from there!

cons
not so good when reading epub formats
You're fortunate, my Paperwhite can't even read epub formats.
For epub I'll go online to convert it to mobi format.

It is better to do your conversions offline with Calibre:
https://calibre-ebook.com/

It's been more than 6 years since I came to HWZ and it looks to me that the Kindle is not too popular in Sg? I've had mine for more than 4 years and still enjoying it. Highly recommended for anyone serious about reading (although I don't know what the options and features are for buying locally).

Anyone find kindle books now getting more expensive?


Last time always got 40% - 60% discount in kindle store. Now always like 20% nia.

Now most of them almost same price as paperback. Last time easily 30-40% cheaper

My new Paperwhite 4 contrast looks worse than on Paperwhite 2. Is that normal? The text looks kinda greyish and not as black. Kinda looks lower resolution. Thinking whether to return it and get the Oasis or Kobo Libra instead.

All 3 at same brightness. Loaded up manga so the diff is easier to spot. Left is Paperwhite 4 and middle is Paperwhite 2. Paperwhite 4 text is kinda faint and "shade" is not as black as the other 2 devices.
