Kindle Paperwhite review (2015): our favorite e-reader gets even better

 

This is the third Paperwhite in as many years, and Amazon finally upgraded it with a high-resolution 300ppi screen. The rest of the changelog is pretty short, but that doesn't really matter; a great display combined with Amazon's web of content makes...

Lovely, high-res screen ; Long-lasting battery ; Snappy page flips and scrolling

Base model includes ads ; Notmany design tweaks over the last generation ; Amazon's ecosystem isn't for everyone

This is the third Kindle Paperwhite in as many years, and it's the first to bring a dramatic upgrade -- that mostly lovely screen -- into the fold. While the total package isn't as whiz-bang impressive as its cousin the Voyage, it's still easily the...

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2015 review

 

Bright, high-res screen looks great ; Amazon offers a huge selection of ebooks ; Comfortable to hold while reading

Limited to Amazon’s library ; Not waterproof

You really can’t go wrong with a Kindle. The 2015 Paperwhite is second only to the Kindle Voyage, which has a slightly better screen and physical buttons, for those of you who don’t want to touch the screen to turn the page. The Paperwhite is less...

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

 

Thanks to a sharp display and fast performance, Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite is the best ebook reader you can buy for the price.

Affordable. Sharp, bright screen. Improved performance. Excellent interface. Cloud-based storage. Vast ebook store.

No adaptive backlight, waterproofing, or audiobook support.

The Kindle Store is still the ruler of the roost in the ebook space, and that seems unlikely to change any time soon. So if you want the best ebook selection available at the best prices, you will probably want to go with an Amazon device. You can also...

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2015 review: The Goldilocks e-reader?

 

The third-generation Paperwhite now sports the Kindle Voyage's high-resolution display, but otherwise looks and costs the same as the previous model.

Amazon has improved on last year's excellent Paperwhite e-reader with the sharper, higher resolution screen found in the step-up Kindle Voyage. A smattering of new features enhance Amazon's already best-in-class content ecosystem. The built-in light...

The HD screen is an upgrade but doesn't make a huge difference; an AC adapter isn't included (just a Micro-USB cable for charging). The ad-free version costs $20 more.

The Kindle Paperwhite gets an HD screen, and while it isn't as big an upgrade as you'd think, it's a welcome addition, incrementally enhancing the Kindle reading experience.

Review: the new Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader

 

There's a new Kindle Paperwhite out, and it's just like the old one except for a high-resolution screen. Nobody was really expecting it to happen: after all, before this update, Amazon had a pretty...

High-resolution screen ; Great battery life ; Huge book selection

No adaptive backlight ; Not waterproof ; DRM

Kindle Paperwhite shines

 

The ; boasts the best screen we've seen to date on an e-ink e-reader. The built-in light is great for nighttime reading, and the touch screen is a notch above the competition. Amazon's e-book selection remains best in class. Battery life is excellent...

It could be a tad lighter, an AC adapter isn't included (just a Micro-USB cable for charging), and there's no memory expansion slot. The ad-free version costs $20 more.

With an excellent built-in light and Amazon's best-in-class e-book selection, the Kindle Paperwhite rises to the top of the e-reader pack.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (3rd generation) review: The best e-reader for the buck

 

It's not Amazon's most expensive e-readery, but it delivers the best value of any e-reader.

High-resolution display ; Evenly distributed backlight ; Comfortable to hold for long reading sessions

Content protected with DRM technology ; Does not handle PDFs or other content-rich file formats well ; "With special offers" models display ads on their lock screens

Despite the fact that its display lighting levels are adjustable, the latest Paperwhite lacks the ambient light sensor that would enable it to automatically adjust its luminosity according to ambient conditions. It’s also worth mentioning that if...

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review

 

While it lacks the fancy page buttons and smart backlight of the Voyage , the $119 Paperwhite impresses with the same 300-ppi screen, and is certainly the best E Ink e-reader on the market in its price range. While the upgrades are impactful, keep in...

Sharp display ; New font and advanced typesetting ; Improved parental controls ; Expanded storage

Power adapter sold separately ; No audio port

The all-new Kindle Paperwhite retains the great features of its predecessor, but sports a sharper screen and advanced typesetting that makes reading easier than it ever has been. The all-new Kindle Paperwhite retains the great features of its...

Kindle Paperwhite Review (2015): The E-Reader You Should Buy

 

The Kindle Paperwhite just updated to a higher resolution screen for the same $120 price. I probably don't need to tell you it's better than the last Paperwhite. It definitely is.

Kindle Paperwhite (2015)

 

Amazon's latest update to its mid-range e-reader, the Paperwhite, doesn't make any dramatic changes to the overall look. But, the one thing that has been improved has made this an even more worthy purchase.

Great screen ; Impressive battery ; Responsive display

Locked into Amazon ; No audio functions

The best all-round e-reader on the market, with an awesome screen and a price that won’t break the bank.
