remarkable 2 Vs Kindle Scribe: The showdown

Remarkable 2 Vs Kindle Scribe

Kindle Scribe is the first e-reader from Amazon that comes with a stylus. A much anticipated device but is it better hen the most popular E Ink Tablet Brand in the Market? remarkable. Or are these devices different enough that they can’t compete together.

A long kindle user and a recent remarkable fan I believe both the devices have a different target audience. To cut it short if you have been in the Amazon Ecosystem long enough and read a lot of books and note taking is secondary then Kindle Scribe is the option. If you  focus more on jotting notes, marking PDFs and need a simple yet elegant notepad then reMarkable is the choice for you.

The Kindle Scribe and the Remarkable 2 are two digital tablets specifically made for note-taking and sketching. They differ in terms of design, display size & type, weight, connectivity, and features. Lets dive in deeper to find out which is better or what suits you better.

Amazon Kindle Scribe and the Remarkable 2 both have a tablet-like form factor and are equipped with greyscale E Ink screens. Notably, they feature bezels framing the displays, with a wider strip on the left side for more comfortable handling. Both devices have rubber feet on the back to prevent sliding. However, there are also visual distinctions that set these two devices apart. The Kindle Scribe is slightly taller by 9mm, while the Remarkable 2 is wider by 17mm.  

Overall, I find the Kindle Scribe to have a contemporary and stylish appearance, while the Remarkable 2 exudes a more minimalist and sophisticated vibe. Both devices prioritize user comfort and ease of use with their design choices.

  • Its the thinnest E Ink Tablet in the market (4.7 mm)
  • It  has a white frame with a silver-accented grip strip and a thicker lower bezel
  • Its lesser weight (404) and thickness makes it feel more nimble while holding

  • The Kindle Scribe boasts a sleek all-black design with uniform bezels on three sides
  • It is slightly heavier (433) grams then the reMarkable 2.

Comparing the displays of the Kindle Scribe and Remarkable 2 e-readers, the Kindle Scribe features a 10.2-inch display with 300ppi resolution, while the Remarkable 2 boasts a 10.3-inch display with 226ppi resolution. Both displays have a paper-like texture that mimics real paper and are glare-free, making them suitable for outdoor reading. Both devices still have their transreflective properties, so if you’re in a room or area with lots of light, it will look great.

reMarkable 2

  • The device has no front lighting
  • The reMarkable screen uses their patented CANVAS technology. The screen has more fiction and paper like feel to it. However it is made of glass making it a bit heavier and prone to damage.

The Remarkable 2 stylus offers more customization options and a natural writing experience, making it ideal for those who want to personalize their note-taking experience. On the other hand, the Kindle Scribe pen is a great option for those who want an e-reader with the added functionality of note-taking, but don’t need as many customization options.

With 19g weight stylus of reMarkable is a bit heavy but feels great in hard as compared to Kindles Basic Pen. The pens do not  need charging and attach magnetically to the side. 

reMarkable 2

  • The standard Marker costs $79 and the Marker Plus with an eraser costs $129
  • The writing experience is far more diverse with different pen brush options, pens and level of shades.

  • The eraser tip at the end feels like real rubber and is really responsive.

Note Taking

The Remarkable 2 and Kindle Scribe offer useful features for note-taking, but the Remarkable 2 offers more flexibility in terms of a lot of features and its primary function is note taking. The Kindle Scribe is more focused on reading and offers the ability to add notes to books. Remarkable is the winner when it comes to note taking

reMarkable 2

  • Offers 51 templates for  note-taking
  • The pages can be layered and tagged individually which helps in better organization.
  • Great Pen Response, different tips and pens styles, pressure and tilt sensitivity make the note taking experience premium
  • Handwriting recognition and convert to text are available. I found the results surprisingly accurate.
  • You can take your notes directly on PDFs pages
  • Allows you to sign into cloud storage accounts like OneDrive and Dropbox for immediate access to your documents. 

Kindle Scribe

  • The device offers notebooks, checklists, and layouts to help organize reading and notes. But the pages cannot be layered or tagged.
  • The Pen response is great but it doesn’t give a lot of flexibility in terms of pen tips and shades when it comes to writing.
  • You cannot write directly on the Books but you to add sticky notes to any book.
  • It doesn’t have handwriting recognition but we hope that it comes in the future.


When it comes to reading experience, there is no match for Kindle Scribe. Kindle has improved its Reading UI over time and added so many features that remarkable lacks.

reMarkable 2

  • Supports ePUB, PDF and Word documents.
  • For annotating files are converted to PDF. But the good thing is you can take notes directly on PDFs.
  • There is no backlight so you cant read at night.
  • No in build dictionary
  • No preinstalled book store, it means dragging and dropping EPUB files manually.
  • You can also add sticky notes directly to Word docs, and from later this year you’ll be able to send documents to the Scribe from within Microsoft Word.

Kindle Scribe

Supernote A5x Vs Remarkable 2

Hardware & Software

The reMarkable was launched in 2020 and the hardware is a bit outdated when compared to Kindle but still packs and punch. Whereas the devices have their own tailored OS and run on Linux. Each adopts a pared-back approach, with clean visuals, tidy menus and neat icons for switching tools.

reMarkable 2

  • the reMarkable 2 has a dual-core processor with 1Gb RAM.
  • The storage is only 8Gb which can be a problem for some people.
  • Doesn’t have Bluetooth
  • It doesnt have G sensor or light sensor

Kindle Scribe

  • It has 1 Gz processor with 1Gb of memory
  • 16/32/64 Gb of storage.
  • Comes with build in Bluetooth, so can listen to audio books
  • The Device has G sensor and light sensors as well


In terms of pricing, the Remarkable 2 appears to be more affordable at first glance. However, when you factor in the cost of a stylus its quite higher, which is more expensive than the entry-level Kindle Scribe.

reMarkable 2

  • The Remarkable 2 has a single version with 8 GB of non-expandable storage
  • However, the tablet doesn’t come with a stylus in the box. You can opt for the standard Marker or premium Marker.
  • Remarkable charges /monthly subscription fee if you want to use the “connect” feature.

Kindle Scribe

  • Amazon’s Kindle Scribe comes in three storage capacities: 
  • The basic pen is included in the box, but you can upgrade to the Premium Pen 
  • The 32GB and 64GB versions come with the Premium Pen as standard. Notably, the Kindle Scribe does not require any subscription fees for connectivity.


The Kindle Scribe boasts a ____ mAh long-lasting battery that can last up to 12 weeks with just 30 minutes of reading per day or 3 weeks with 30 minutes of writing, according to Amazon’s claims. In our testing, we found that the Scribe used around half of the battery after two weeks of frequent use at high brightness and with Wi-Fi disabled.

In contrast, the Remarkable 2 has a 3000 mAh battery that is rated to last for about 2 weeks. However, the way I use it it hardly lasts a few days.

The Kindle Scribe offers a more impressive battery life, while the Remarkable 2 may be more suitable for users who take notes intermittently. Both devices charge via USB-C and do not support wireless charging.


The Kindle Scribe and the Remarkable 2 allow file sharing via USB-C and support Wi-Fi. Additionally, the Kindle has Bluetooth which is missing in the remarkable.

The Kindle Scribe offers unlimited Amazon Cloud Storage for your documents. The Remarkable 2, offers unlimited cloud storage with a Connect subscription. The subscription comes with a one-year trial, after which you’ll need to pay a monthly fee of $2.99. But compared to Kindle Scribe, the Remarkable 2 allows users to use cloud services from Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and My ReMarkable, allowing you to access all your synced documents on your mobile phone, laptop, and desktop devices.

Accessories Available

The Kindle Scribe comes with a pen, USB-C cable, extra tips, a tool to change the tips, and a battery that can be charged. You can purchase additional accessories like a magnetic fabric folio, screen protector, and the premium pen.

The Remarkable 2, on the other hand, comes with a USB-C charger and cable out of the box. You can purchase a magnetic fabric folio, screen protector, and stylus with replaceable tips separately.
