eBook reader test comparison 2020 – these are the best eReader

The best eBook readers 2020 – the editors' recommendations

Basically, e-book readers can be divided into two groups based on their different e-book formats: Amazon Kindle e-readers, which use the Amazon AWS format, and tolino e-readers and other e-book readers, which use the ePUB e-book format . Below are our recommendations for both eBook universes.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite – price-performance recommendation Amazon eReader

The e-book reader Amazon Kindle Paperwhite offers 8 GB of storage twice as much as the basic Amazon Kindle. In addition, the Paperwhite model is waterproof and has Bluetooth, so that users can listen to audible audio books through Bluetooth headphones. The good equipment also convinced Stiftung Warentest, which awarded the test grade “good” (1.8). (As of: 05/2020)

Amazon Kindle Oasis (10th generation) – eReader recommendation for high demands

The Amazon Kindle Oasis (10th Generation) eBook reader is the most expensive Amazon Kindle e-reader. It is suitable for everyone who wants to read with large fonts, is also waterproof, offers Bluetooth and allows the color temperature to be set at which readers can reduce the blue component of the display light. In addition, Amazon has integrated page turning buttons in a side handle bar. Stiftung Warentest rated the device as “good” (1.7). (As of: 05/2020)

The eBook reader tolino vision 5 convinces like Amazon Kindle Oasis with a large 7-inch display and buttons for turning the pages, but offers a better price-performance ratio. In addition, readers can also set the color temperature. Anyone who reads a lot and likes to read in bed at night should definitely include the tolino vision 5 in their purchase decision. Stiftung Warentest gave the device the test grade “good” (1.7). (As of: 05/2020)

eBook reader in the test check – the current Amazon Kindle eBook reader

The Amazon Kindle eBook universe is a closed eco-system that relies on its own e-book format called AWS. This means: If you choose an e-book reader from Amazon, you cannot read e-books that are offered in the more or less open ePUB format. The latter is used, for example, by the tolino alliance and other providers of digital books. The strategy that Amazon is pursuing is clear: once a Kindle, always a Kindle.

A big plus of the e-book readers from Amazon is the high speed of the devices and the ease of use. Below we give a test overview of the best Amazon Kindle eBook readers.

eBook reader review Amazon Paperwhite – the robust eReader

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite of the 10th generation (Gen. 10) can count itself to the eReader comfort devices and offers a corresponding equipment, which is otherwise reserved for higher priced models. Quality features of the Kindle Paperwhite are the good resolution with 300 ppi, 8 GB of storage space and a fast processor. The latter in particular ensured a good user experience in the editors' eReader test. In addition, it is waterproof according to protection class IPX8. Thanks to this, the device is protected against the ingress of water for an indefinite period of time if it is completely submerged. This should please bathtub readers in particular, but outdoor fans will also get their money's worth and always have the reading they want with them on the beach or while camping. In our opinion, Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is a very good entry-level device with a good price-performance ratio.

Technically, Kindle Paperwhite offers a 6 inch display, which may be considered the standard for eReaders. Five LEDs that illuminate the display ensure good brightness values. In contrast to the background lighting, this is easy on the eyes. Like all current Amazon Kindle models, Kindle Paperwhite has an integrated Bluetooth interface. This allows Audible audiobooks and podcasts to be streamed to connected Bluetooth headphones or Bluetooth speakers.

Important eBook reader tests and ratings for the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

The eReader experts from Stiftung Warentest awarded a “good” (1.8) after the test. (Status: 05/2020). The editors of ComputerBild rated Amazon Kindle Paperwhite as “good” after their eReader test.

eReader test Amazon Kindle – entry-level alternative for price-conscious buyers

The basic device for the e-book reader entry from Amazon is simply called Kindle and differs from the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite in the stripped-down technical equipment. The eReader only has four built-in LEDs. In practice, however, the reading turned out to be flawless. In the eReader test, e-books were very easy to read with Amazon Kindle. Another difference to the Kindle Paperwhite: The display only has a resolution of 167 dpi. Paperwhite offers the more expensive devices the usual 300 ppi. Here, too, it must be said that the difference in texts is hardly noticeable in practice. Illustrations are an exception here. Nevertheless, Amazon Kindle is comic-ready for reading. However, colors are broken down to 16 shades of gray.

The new Kindle (10th Gen.) is a good eReader that stood out in the test with its high speed, solid workmanship and good display. As an extra, the device supports Bluetooth and is therefore also suitable for audio books. Although the device only offers 4 GB of storage, since all Amazon Kindle eBooks purchased can be stored in the cloud for free, the fact is negligible. One GB is enough for an average of 1,000 eBooks. It is different with audio books, here an edition can take up to one GB of storage space.

Important eBook reader tests and ratings for the Amazon Kindle base unit

The Stiftung Warentest awarded the quality rating “good” (2.5) after testing the Amazon Kindle e-book reader.

eBook reader test Amazon Kindle Oasis – large display and smart light

Bookseller Amazon is following a clear line with its eBook readers. The model selection is limited to three devices. The premium device is Kindle Oasis (10th Gen.). The model offers a 7 inch screen. The device is therefore also suitable for readers who prefer books with large fonts. The font size can be set on all eBook readers, but with a larger display, more words can be shown per line.

The specialty of Kindle Oasis is the handle bar with two recessed buttons for turning the pages. Intelligent LEDs are also built in, which allow the color temperature to be set. The digital book pages then appear, starting with a clear white tone, which is conducive to concentration, to an amber-yellowish white tone, which is supposed to be easier on the eyes at night. Thanks to a built-in light sensor, users can also have the color temperature adjusted automatically.

Test check of eBook readers – the current tolino eBook readers

If you don't want to buy your eBooks from Amazon or prefer the somewhat freer ePUB e-book format, you can choose from eBook readers from the tolino Alliance or PocketBook, to name a few of the larger providers in Germany. Whether Kindle or tolino is better is more a system question than a device question.

PocketBook can be seen as an innovation driver among ePUB eReaders. The tolino eBook readers offer a little more equipment functions than the Amazon Kindle devices, but their weak point is the slower processor, which can sometimes spoil the reading experience due to delayed response times.

eBook reader tolino page 2 – the affordable entry into the tolino reading world

The eBook reader tolino page 2 is the affordable entry-level model from the tolino alliance. The model is comparable to the Amazon Kindle, but has twice as much memory. The display resolution is also better at 212 ppi (base model Kindle: 167 ppi). However, this is less noticeable when reading than when displaying graphics. Overall, the model can display 16 shades of gray, which is standard for all readers in our large eBook reader comparison.

The eBook reader for beginners tolino page 2 offers 8 GB of memory and is the cheapest tolino eReader

The eBook reader for beginners tolino page 2 offers 8 GB of memory and is the cheapest tolino eReader

(tolino media)

Tolino page 2 does not offer any special extras such as the option to set the color temperature or a Bluetooth interface. It is clearly aimed at interested parties who are simply looking for a low-cost entry into the world of tolino books. As with the other tolinos, the Kindle devices score in comparison with a higher speed, which is due to the processor. Compared to Amazon's basic Kindle 2019 model, the entry-level reader from tolino falls behind, despite more storage space.

Important eBook reader tests and ratings for the tolino page 2 eReader

In the eBook reader test by Stiftung Warentest, tolino page 2 was able to achieve the test quality rating “good” (1.9). (Status: 05/2020) The experts for electronic reading devices from Chip gave the test grade "good" after the eBook reader test tolino page 2. (Status: 08/2020) In the tolino page 2 eBook reader test by the editorial team of Computerbild, the device also achieved the valued test grade "good". (Status: 10/2019) Amazon customers rated the eBook reader tolino page 2 with a good 4.1 out of 5 stars. (As of: 11/2020)

eBook reader tolino shine 3 in the test check – eReader with extras for tolino readers

The eBook reader tolino shine 3 positions itself as an opponent of the Kindle Paperwhite. Like this one, the eBook reader has a 6 inch display with a resolution of 300 ppi. Text and graphics are allowed to be sharp; the difference in sharpness to a printed book cannot be seen with the naked eye. Compared to the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, tolino shine 3 offers a smartLight function. Users can use it to set the color temperature manually or let the device determine it automatically. With the latter, the eBook reader sets the color temperature depending on the ambient light.

tolino shine 3 is a comfort device that already offers smartLight technology for setting the color temperature. Unfortunately not waterproof

(tolino media)

The shine 3, on the other hand, saved on the processor and water resistance. The slow processor sometimes makes reading fun difficult, but this is only noticeable in direct comparison with an Amazon Kindl device. Buying books via the eReader itself is just as straightforward as with the Amazon models. If you feel at home in the tolino world, the tolino shine 3 is a good reading device for e-books. However, the device lacks a Bluetooth interface, so audiobooks are not supported.

tolino shine 3 is a good entry-level device into the tolino world, which includes the Hugendubel, Libri, Thalia and Weltbild book chains. This makes it easier for the user to find a bookseller nearby than with the PocketBook. This is important because when shopping directly via the eReader, the invoice is issued via the linked bookstore. If the selected bookstore has to cease operations, the account can be transferred to another bookstore in the tolino alliance.

Important eBook reader reviews and ratings for the tolino shine 3 eReader

The Stiftung Warentest judged after the eReader test of the eBook reader tolino shine 3: "Better than its predecessor", but complained about the uneven lighting of the touchscreen (status: 10/2018) the device with the test grade "satisfactory" (2.5). (Status: 07/2020) The internet portal netzwelt.de also tested the tolino shine 3 eBook reader. As a result, the eReader achieved 8.6 out of 10 test points. (Status: 10/2018) Amazon customers rated tolino shine 3 with a good 4.3 out of 5 stars. (As of: 11/2020)

eBook reader tolino vision 5 – the tolino alternative to Amazon Kindle Oases

With the eBook reader tolino vision 5, the tolino alliance is launching its alternative to the Kindle Oasis. The eReader displays content on a 7-inch screen. Like the larger tolino epos 2 model, the device offers readers a handle bar in which two control buttons are incorporated for turning the digital book pages. Of course, users can also browse through e-books using the touch display. However, the special scroll keys can make it easier for newcomers to digital reading pleasure.

(tolino media)

Like all tolino devices in our test comparison, tolino vision 5 has integrated lighting with a smartLight function, with which the color temperature can be set from cold-white to warm-white light. The support of Onleihe is a real selling point. This allows users to borrow eBooks in public libraries – provided they offer online lending. The same applies to eBooks in the lending libraries as to traditional books: if an edition is out of stock, users have to wait until the book has been returned. Nevertheless, we think this function is very good, because financially weaker people also have cheap access to books. Amazon could improve here, as the Kindle eBook readers do not support online loan.

Important eBook reader tests and ratings for tolino vision 5

The well thought-out equipment was also able to convince Stiftung Warentest. After the tolino vision 5 eBook reader test, the testers gave the test quality rating “good” (1.7). (Status: 05/2020). In the eBook reader test by ComputerBild, tolino vision 5 achieved the test grade “good”. (Status: 10/2019) The Computer Base editors praised the good brightness values ​​in their eBook reader test of tolino vision 5, but criticized the “high price for a few functions”.

eBook reader tolino epos 2 – tolino flagship with giant display

With the tolino epos 2, the tolino alliance has an eBook reader on offer, which is aimed primarily at book lovers who prefer large displays. With 8 inches it surpasses the tolino vision 5 and Amazon Oasis with their 7 inch displays. Users can read eBooks horizontally and vertically with the device; in a horizontal position, the number of words that can be displayed increases even further with large font. However, only if the user confirms this by tapping a symbol on the screen. This makes sense because the screen content does not rotate automatically when you put the eReader to one side or change your body position. As far as water resistance is concerned, the e-reader uses the HzO technology, in which the device is made water-resistant by means of a nanoparticle coating.

With an 8-inch display, tolino epos 2 is the tolino alliance's largest eReader. Many words fit on one page here

PocketBook can be seen as an innovation driver among ePUB eBook readers. Fast processors allow for quick page turning and display, Bluetooth makes the devices audiobook-compatible. Most recently PocketBook even introduced one of the first eBook readers with color technology. The PocketBook InkPad 3 and Touch HD 3 readers are popular with readers. The InkPad 3 series is characterized by larger 7.8 inch displays.

A disadvantage for PocketBook readers: The prerequisite for buying eBooks directly via the eReader is that the bookstore linked to the eBook reader supports the PocketBook system. Users can search for relevant bookstores using a map. Otherwise, the eBooks have to be downloaded from the PC to the reader at home.

eBook reader PocketBook Touch HD 3 – recommendation for ePUB readers

There are more eBook reader manufacturers than just Amazon and the tolino alliance. PocketBook primarily offers an alternative to the widely used tolino devices. The PocketBook Touch HD 3 model implements many of the wishes that users of a tolino want. Above all, the device has a fast dual core processor, B. enables a brisk page turning. Like the Amazon Kindle models, the eBook reader also supports listening to audiobooks via a Bluetooth interface.

PocketBook Touch HD 3, like most tolino eReaders, also offers the smartLight function. This means the possibility of setting the color temperature of the LED lighting. A feature that is reserved for the Kindle Oasis 2019 device on Kindle devices. In addition, the device has the IPx7 water protection class. This means that the eBook reader is protected from water even if it is temporarily submerged in the bathtub or pool. Overall, the model is our recommendation for ePUB eBook readers who value the fact that the eReader can read as many formats as possible. Books are bought on site or on the Internet using a PC. If a bookstore is linked to the eReader, direct purchase via the device also works.

eBook reader – why the future belongs to the digital book

The digital pleasure of reading is finding its way into German households. Reading e-books has many advantages over paper books. There is no need to go to the bookstore and thus the annoying search for a parking space or wearing a mask to protect against corona when choosing a reading.

In addition, eBooks are easy on the wallet, because the digital book versions are usually cheaper than normal books. There are several reasons for this: on the one hand, there are no printing costs and, on the other hand, the traditional distribution channels no longer have to be used until a book from the printer finds its way to the bookshelf at the local bookseller. A positive side effect: This protects the environment and makes cutting trees superfluous.

But an eBook offers even more. Readers can easily change the font size on the eReader. Those who cannot see well simply choose larger letters. Forgot reading glasses? No problem anymore.

But which eBook reader should you choose? Two big players have established themselves on the eBook market in recent years: Amazon with its Kindle eBook readers and the tolino alliance with tolino eBook readers. There are also smaller market players such as Pocketbook, which also offer digital reading devices for books.

Purchase advice eReader – the most important eBook reader purchase criteria

These functions and features are important when buying an e-book reader:

Display: Most of the models in the eReader comparison have a 6-inch display, which is very compact, but also too small for some readers, especially if you like to read with larger font sizes. 7- or 8-inch e-readers have a larger screen. As far as resolution is concerned, almost all eBook readers are equipped with 300 ppi except for the inexpensive entry-level devices under 100 euros.

Bluetooth: audio books are fun. With the eReaders, the connection between the reader and headphones is established via the Bluetooth wireless standard. Commuters in particular who prefer to have a book read to themselves rather than reading after a strenuous day at work should therefore attach importance to Bluetooth capability. Amazon is pursuing a clear product strategy in that it has so far equipped all new eBook readers with Bluetooth. Also, of course, to give her audiobook subsidiary Audible an advantage. Price and performance are right, the customer benefits. Conversely, Audible users who want to use their audio books with an eBook reader are dependent on the Kindle devices.

Storage space: The internal storage space of the Tolino models listed in the comparison is a good 8 GB. In addition, there is the cloud storage in which the purchased eBooks are held for retrieval. There are model variants with more memory for the readers from Amazon. With many models you can choose between 8 or 32 GB of storage space, whereas the Kindle 2019 only comes with 4 GB. However, even the smallest memory size is realistically enough to accommodate thousands of eBooks.

Relevant wird der Speicherplatz bei einem e Book-Reader mit Bluetooth-Konnektivität. Auf solchen Modellen lassen sich Hörbücher herunterladen, die einen größeren Datenumfang haben. Wer viele Hörbücher gleichzeitig mit sich führen will, sollte im Zweifel zu einer Modell-Variante mit dem größeren Speicher greifen.

Gratis HotSpot und 4G-Verbindung: Die meisten tolino eBook-Reader bieten einen Gratiszugang zu Telekom HotSpots, Amazon Kindle Oasis 2019 eine kostenlose 4G-Verbindung zum eBook-Download. Das klingt auf den ersten Blick gut, trotzdem sollten Käufer dies nicht zum Hauptkriterium einer Kaufentscheidung machen. Denn die meisten Inhalte lädt man in der Praxis im Heimnetzwerk per WLAN auf das Gerät. Selbst mit 4 GB Speicher passen damit Tausende eBooks auf ein Gerät. Ein Audible-Hörbuch mit 18 h Hörzeit benötigt zirka ein halbes GB.

Akkulaufzeit: Alle eBook-Reader im Vergleich weisen eine Akku-Dauer von mehreren Wochen auf. In der Realität reicht das auch für einen längeren Auslandsaufenthalt. Geräte, bei denen via Bluetooth Hörbücher auf einen Bluetooth-Kopfhörer gestreamt werden, verbrauchen mehr Strom. Allerdings können alle eReader per USB-Kabel über Nacht wieder aufgeladen werden. Letztendlich muss man sich hinsichtlich Akkulaufzeit bei allen im Test-Vergleich berücksichtigten eReader keine Sorgen machen.

Wasserfest: Leider sind nicht alle eBook-Reader wasserfest. Amazon hat Kindle Oasis 2019 und der 2018er-Version des Kindle Paperwhite Wasserfestigkeit nach IPX8 attestiert. Damit sind die Geräte Badewannen-tauglich. Der Basis Kindle 2019 verfügt leider über keine Wasserfestigkeit, wir empfehlen deshalb den Kauf einer Schutzhülle. Die meisten tolino eBook-Reader haben eine spezielle wasserfeste Nanobeschichtung (HZO), so dass sie ebenfalls wasserfest sind. Eine IP-Schutzklassenzertifizierung fehlt jedoch.

Gewicht: Je leichter, desto besser lässt sich der eBook-Reader mitnehmen. Alle eReader in unserem Test-Vergleich wiegen unter 200 Gramm und sind damit bestens als Reisebegleiter geeignet.

Bildschirmbeleuchtung: Eine Bildschirmbeleuchtung, die sich an die Umgebungshelligkeit oder Tageszeit anpasst, ist schonender für die Augen. Die Beleuchtung der eReader-Displays aller Modelle im Test-Vergleich erfolgt über LEDs. Die integrierte Beleuchtung sollte eine Frontbeleuchtung sein, bei der das Licht von oben auf das Display fällt, da dies beim Lesen die Augen schont. Das unterscheidet die eBook-Reader zum Beispiel von Tablets, bei der das Licht den LCD-Bildschirm von hinten beleuchtet.

Verbindung: Wer unbedingt auch unterwegs beziehungsweise ohne WLAN auf die eBook-Auswahl des eReaders zugreifen möchte, sollte ein Modell wählen, das 3G oder 4G ermöglicht. In unseren Augen reicht jedoch die WLAN-Variante aus, da WLAN weltweit breit verfügbar ist. Wer sich im Ausland befindet kann zusätzliche E-Books in einem Café mit WLAN-Hot-Spot herunterladen.

Preis: Von 79,99 Euro für den Basis Kindle eBook-Reader mit grundlegender Funktionalität bis zu 269 Euro für den tolino epos 2 eBook-Reader können Kaufinteressenten die gesamte Preisspanne ausreizen. Bei den Kindle eBook-Readern lässt sich je nach Speicherausstattung auch mehr Geld ausgeben. Unser Preis-Leistungssieger Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018 ist für seine gute Ausstattung zu einem moderaten Preis ab 116 Euro erhältlich. Gute Nachricht für Verbraucher: e-Reader Premium-Modelle gibt es bereits für unter 300 Euro. (Stand: 08/2020)

Wie funktioniert der Kopierschutz bei eBooks?

Bei eBooks unterscheidet man zwischen hartem und weichem Kopierschutz. Beim harten Kopierschutz kann das E-Book zwar kopiert werden, ist aber an ein bestimmtes Gerät gebunden. Die tolino-Allianz setzt hier auf den Kopierschutz von Adobe. Amazon hat einen eigenen harten Kopierschutz für seine E-Books entwickelt.

Beim weichen eBook-Kopierschutz wird ein Wasserzeichen in das eBook eingearbeitet, das für den Leser nicht sichtbar ist. Wird das E-Book weitergegeben lässt sich so nachverfolgen, wer das digitale Buch kopiert und verbreitet hat.

Was ist ein E-Book?

Ein E-Book ist ein elektronisches Buch, das von e-Reader-Lesegeräten gelesen werden kann. Daneben ist es auch möglich ein eBook in eReader-Apps auf Tablets und Smartphones zu lesen. Viele E-Book-Verkäufer bieten Cloud-Speicher an, in denen Nutzer ihre E-Books archivieren können. Zudem kann über die Cloud eine Synchronisation stattfinden. So kann ein Nutzer auf unterschiedlichen Geräten immer an der Stelle weiterlesen, an der er zuletzt mit dem Lesen aufgehört hat.

Kann man auf Tolino auch E-Books von Amazon lesen?

Leider nein. Die Anbieter von eReadern arbeiten oft in eigenen eBook-Systemwelten mit unterschiedlichen Formaten. Wer auf Amazon ein E-Book kauft, kann dieses nur mit einem Amazon e-Reader lesen.

Kann man Amazon-eBooks auch ohne Kindle lesen?

Ja, wer auf Amazon ein eBook kauft, benötigt nicht zwingend einen Amazon eReader. Amazon bietet dafür die Kindle Lese-App (Android | iOS) an. Diese kann auf Tablets und Smartphones installiert werden. Auch für Windows PCs und Mac Computer steht eine Kindle Lese-App (PC | Mac) zur Verfügung.

Was ist Onleihe?

Onleihe ist ein Bibliotheken-Service für die Ausleihe von E-Books und anderen digitalen Medien. Nutzer können mit ihrem Bibliotheksausweis auf der Webseite der Bibliothek lizensierte Medien ausleihen. Die Anzahl der Medien ist begrenzt. Ist ein E-Book bereits verliehen, muss man warten, bis das Buch zurückgegeben wurde.

Kann man mit einem tolino e-Reader auch Hörbücher hören?

Derzeit ist es noch nicht möglich mit einem tolino e-Reader Hörbücher zu hören. Sobald es Modelle mit Bluetooth-Schnittstelle gibt, sind auch die technischen Voraussetzungen gegeben, um die Audio-Daten des Hörbuchs auf einen Bluetooth-Lautsprecher oder einen Bluetooth-Kopfhörer zu streamen.
