Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review

 

Is the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite a bright idea or just a flash in the pan?

Sharp ; bright front-lit displa ; Easy to read new fonts ; Cutting edge reading features

Over-sensitive touch tech ; Dodgy browser ; Fewer features than US

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018 review

 

Amazon's most popular Kindle can now join you for bath time

It’s waterproof! ; It’s Bluetooth! ; Books look great ; (Very slightly) improved brightness

Still feels a bit sluggish at times ; Smudges

Still the best overall Kindle when price is taken into consideration, and now it gains the Oasis’ best tricks

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2018) review: Thinner, brighter, better

 

Better design ; Best balance of functions for the price ; Battery life ; Water protection

Kindle Store can be confusing ; Micro-USB and no fast charging

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is still the best Kindle to choose. It gives you that important illumination over the basic model, without the cost of the Oasis. For many people, this will be the model to pick.

Amazon Kindle review

 

If you're looking to buy an ereader right now, it's almost certain you'll be looking to buy something from Amazon's Kindle range. With three products on offer, the Kindle family offers something for everyone, with top-end features restricted to...

Features a backlight Clear display Can listen to audiobooks

Not waterproof Still uses micro USB Limited storage for audiobooks

It’s by no means the best ereader money can buy, but introducing a backlight to the cheapest Kindle means it’s now much more difficult to justify buying a more expensive, top-end ereader. If you’re always reading, the Kindle Paperwhite or Oasis may be...

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review

 

The Kindle Paperwhite is Amazon's mid-range ereader, sitting between the affordable Kindle and the top-end Kindle Oasis in Amazon's range, and the design reflects that. It doesn't feel as premium as the Oasis - mostly as it has a plastic rear - but...

Waterproof design Audiobook integration A great reading experience

Plastic design Limited color options Still uses microUSB

The Kindle Paperwhite takes a lot of what we love about the more expensive, high-end Kindle Oasis and brings the core features into a more affordable package. This is a must-have ereader if you're after a way to read ebooks but you don't want to spend...

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2018) review: Exceedingly well read

 

The Kindle Paperwhite nabs features from the Oasis without a dramatic price hike

Flush screen design is a classy look ; Excellent Audible integration ; Now the cheapest waterproof Kindle

Interface is still a touch clunky ; Audible drains its incredible battery

Do you need to upgrade to it right now? Not unless you listen to a lot of Audible audiobooks or read mostly in the bath. But when your trusty old e-reader gives up the ghost, you know exactly what to order.

Amazon Kindle vs Paperwhite vs Oasis: Which Kindle is best in 2020?

 

What separates the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Oasis? We help you find the best Kindle for you

Finally, the Kindle Oasis is the best choice for those who use their Kindle every day. Yes, it's expensive, but it's a genuine pleasure to use and own and it's the Kindle to buy if you want the very, very best.

Expert review by : David Carnoy (cnet.co.uk)

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite upgraded with slimmer design, full waterproofing, Bluetooth

 

We go hands-on with the new Kindle Paperwhite, which was updated with many of the features found in the high-end Kindle Oasis.
