Amazon has an updated version of the excellent Kindle Paperwhite and it's just been released. And this is no mere by-the-numbers update with a deep dive on internal spec sheet required to spot the differences let's leave that to the MacBooks right? The version of the Paperwhite is so good you might be tempted to ditch the previous version, which we still love very much. The backlit screen is now flush with the bezel, meaning no more places for dust or hair to get stuck. And part of the reasoning behind this upgrade is to ensure the Kindle Paperwhite is now a waterproof ereader, just like the far more expensive but absolutely beautiful Kindle Oasis.
And it's 20 grams lighter. We expect prices to drop on the older model to clear stock out, so you could get a decent discount there see further down this page for the older Paperwhite prices. The Kindle Paperwhite is well on its way to surpassing the previous model, which was already the best value ereader on the planet. The 6th generation Kindle Paperwhite is the best value Kindle yet, it's the most cost effective ereader on the market and it easily beats the Kobo Aura on performance and design.
Unlike the cheaper model, this one comes with screen lighting. Amazon has managed to create a fast electronic ink tablet with inventive reading apps. You can lookup words in the dictionary without leaving your page, or even flick through any relevant Wikipedia entries for most words or terms. The latest version's screen is now just as good as the more expensive Voyage model.
As far as value for money goes, this is the one to beat. If you want the cheapest option, this is the one you should go for as the version has been discontinued and any deals you see are probably for preowned or refurbished units. The model is also available in white the was black only , it's lighter, thinner, has double the RAM speed and double the storage capacity at 4GB. The lack of a lit screen is the only thing holding it back really. This is an upgrade over the older Oasis which is no longer available and a huge improvement.
The Kindle Oasis is also the first kindle to support Aubidle audio books, although you'll need a pair of bluetooth wireless headphones to use this feature as there's no built-in speaker or 3.

This new Kindle ereader's 7-inch screen makes it the largest in the current Kindle range and tempting for readers wanting to view a larger page, meaning you won't have to turn pages as often. The page turn buttons are given a wider bezel on the side than the Kindle Voyage, making it easier to hold one-handed - the screen will flip over to accommodate left-handed readers too.
The considerably cheaper Voyage and Paperwhite models are excellent alternatives and feature the same screen resolution. That larger screen and waterproofing for peace of mind are pretty tempting though. The Voyage used to be the most expensive Kindle around before the Oasis arrived, and it would seem Amazon is slowly phasing this model out in favour of it.
The Voyage is still one of the best ebook readers available. It has a compact design and a sharp screen. Although, the last two versions of the far cheaper Paperwhite now comes with the same ppi backlit screen. Technical Details. Size x x 8. Cloud Storage Free cloud storage for all Amazon content.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Without Special Offers Verified Purchase. Before deciding to buy this Kindle, I had been using the Kindle - the one with no keyboard and no touch screen, just the side buttons. I'd had no inclination to buy another Kindle, because the touch screen wasn't enough of a pull to spend more money on it.
I had filled my Kindle with 18 pages of books and felt sad that I couldn't read it in the bath my second favourite place or at night in bed with the light off my favourite place I looked on the Amazon store to see how much the Kindle Paperwhite was, and saw this beauty!

Pros The new Kindle has no buttons around the edge and it's easy to grasp and keep ahold of. It has Audible and is waterproof like the Kindle Oasis but at a fraction of the price There are no fiddly buttons to change the page but instead a touch screen very different to my Kindle There isn't a frame that sits above the screen on this Kindle which makes it look lovely and fancy There is a major amount of space compared to the Kindle I had I have the 8gb which fits in all of my books and there is still more space You can set font profiles so if others are using it, it will alter to their preference with ease Cons The only possible con I can think of is I am going to have no time to sleep or socialise because I am going to be stuck reading on this.
Overall Amazon have done an amazing job with this new Kindle Paperwhite and at a fraction of the cost of the other high-end Kindles it sells. My old kindle "keyboard" finally gave up the ghost after daily use for 8 years, and while I was a little reluctant to change, for reading in bed so as not to disturb my wife earlier this year I tried the paperwhite; I liked it but had to return two of these as the screen wasn't evenly lit and the battery was awful; I took a refund and I went back to my keyboard.
However this new paperwhite seems excellent I've it less than a week. I particularly like the smooth screen no more bits of dirt getting trapped in the bezel and the fact it is water resistant. It feels a premium product despite the cost and despite being mainly plastic. I purchased one of Amazon's dedicated covers and this wakes and sleeps the kindle as would a tablet. It's so much smaller and lighter then the "keyboard" I had although as it is touchscreen by necessity you require more touches than on the keyboard to do anything.
It's very responsive though and not hard to learn. It's been said in other reviews of the older paperwhite, but I miss the neatness of how the "keyboard" treated collections. You can still move a book to a collection, but it stays on the home screen rather than being "filed" away. Overall I have upgraded fairly seamlessly and any gripes are small, compared to the clarity of the screen and ease of adjusting the settings brightness, fonts etc.
And some reading too!!
Overall a great job rom Amazon, and 5 starts follows if they can sort out their clunky collections function. With Special Offers Verified Purchase. So this is my first ever Kindle, I won't lie I'm not the sort of person to read much, other than the usual fake news on the web, and 's of emails at work, I digress. I was on a pre-release, list for this item, I was excited to get it first hand.
The packaging was ok, although the USB cable wasn't tied with any nice plastic sleeve, it was just shoved in at the bottom. Sure it was new but still the way items are packaged fare well with me. The device works ok, its a reader so not much to say, Hate the fact its automatically blasts you with new offers.

Haven't tested the water resistant,s other than wiping it before I placed it in my cover. Or tested the audible capability yet. I guess the real benefit of this device is the battery power 6 weeks apparently! See all 2, reviews. Unlimited One-Day Delivery and more. There's a problem loading this menu at the moment.
