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 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

The 2018 Kindle Paperwhite is a fantastic e-reader. While the interface feels sluggish and dated in between books, this simplicity becomes a virtue once you start reading. With no distractions or eye strain there’s simply nothing to stop you getting...

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

Kindle Paperwhite review (2018): A classic, updated

 

Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite has long been the go-to e-reader, and for good reason. It provides an enjoyable reading experience with enough premium features to keep most literary lovers happy. Now, with the addition of Bluetooth/Audible and...

Audible support ; Waterproofing ; Improved design ; Better-contrast display

Pricey when fully loaded (LTE and 32GB storage and no “special offers”) ; No MP3 or text-to-speech support

Kindle Paperwhite (2018) review

 

The Kindle Paperwhite (2018) has long been Amazon's most beloved ebook reader. After three years of waiting, the Paperwhite finally got a refresh for 2018. And while it may look the same as its predecessor, new features like Bluetooth connectivity and...

New IPX8 water-resistant design is great for tubs and pools ; Access to massive bookstore ; Good battery life ; Bluetooth connectivity for audiobooks

Cannot customize page-turn gestures ; No option to adjust color temperature

The Kindle Paperwhite isn’t perfect, but an excellent ebook reader for people in the Amazon ecosystem. It’s portable, durable, and allows you to enjoy your favorite books in multiple formats.
