    That's like asking if you would rather have:


    1) A rock

    2) A stock

    3) A motherf***ing lazer gun

    Definitely the Nintendo Switch, for the following:

    1) I don't read books a lot so don't need a Kindle - unless you're talking about the Kindle Fire tablets, in which case I don't need one because I have, and prefer, Android;

    2) I wouldn't want an iPad because it would mean having to re-learn a new OS (iOS in the case) as well as all of the settings, new app stores, and it causes more complexities when you have a new iOS device and everything else has been Android. Oh, and I already have a Galaxy Tab A.

    3) I haven't had a new games console since the Nintendo DSi; I haven't even got a 3DS as of yet so a Switch would be awesome as that is what Nintendo is pushing everyone towards now. Would be great for updating my console games library

    I own both a Kindle (Kindle Fire HDX 2nd Generation) & a Nintendo Switch (bought it today/yesterday).

    Since the Kindle Fire's OS is based on android, I installed a custom recovery and wiped the old OS, and installed LineageOS on it instead, allowing me access to the GPS for better apps and smoother functionality.
    My Switch is perfect, not much I can say about it since I've only had it less than 24 hours.

    If I had to have one of them, it would be the Kindle (as long as it's a Fire/Fire HDX), I don't like iOS that much because of it's restricted functionality, and the Switch doesn't have Youtube or any browser, so it's just games, which will get boring after a while of playing non-stop without going on the internet or something else.

    Personally, I'd wayyy prefer to just buy a physical book rather than buy digital. It's less convenient, more expensive, and prone to breaking or losing, but I still like to feel the actual pages.
