Amazon Kindle Voyage review: The best e-reader is also the priciest

 

With an impressive high-resolution display and a vast content catalog to match, the Kindle Voyage is easily the best e-reader Amazon has ever crafted. Still, its high price tag means it just doesn't make sense for the average reader.

Flush, pixel-dense screen is the best we've seen on any e-reader ; PagePress buttons are mostly satisfying ; Thin and light

Expensive for a standalone e-reader ; Base price includes ads

After living with the Kindle Voyage for a full week, two undeniable truths become apparent. First, it's the best e-reader you can buy right now. Second, it's also the most expensive, and therein lies the rub. Who exactly does Amazon expect will pay...

Amazon Kindle Voyage review

 

This is, without question, the best Kindle ebook reader yet. Between the improved specs and Amazon's reading ecosystem, it's the best E Ink reader you can buy.

Great Screen ; Slim Profile ; Excellent overall reading ecosystem

Expensive ; No expandable storage ; More locked down ecosystem than competing readers

In spite of Barnes & Noble’s absence and Sony’s relative silence, the devoted ebook reader arms race hasn’t ended. Kobo is pushing the space’s limitations and Amazon is following suit, incorporating new technologies into its mainstream products. The...

Editor’s Choice: Kindle Voyage

 

You should probably get the Paperwhite, but I love the Voyage

Excellent screen ; Physical buttons ; Great design

Overpriced for its capabilities ; Not waterproof ; Seriously, Amazon, get it together and release a waterproof version of this thing. Your CEO is putting rockets into space, but I can’t put my Kindle Voyage in a bathtub? Come on.

Amazon Kindle Voyage

 

The Amazon Kindle Voyage is one of the nicest best ebook readers available, though most people will still be served just fine by the Kindle Paperwhite.

Incredibly sharp display. Adaptive front light. Thin design. Excellent ebook store.

Expensive. No memory card slot or ePub support.

Amazon's Kindle Store is better than ever. It's filled with lists and recommendations, and generally seems to have the best pricing when compared with competitors like Barnes & Noble and Kobo (over a million titles are $4.99 or less). It's easy to...

The Kindle Voyage delivers higher resolution, new page-turn tech, improved contrast, smoother glass, and other improvements you didn't know you wanted.

300 pixels-per-inch display ; Ambient light sensor ; Edge-to-edge glass ; Touch-sensitive page-turn buttons

Very expensive ; Power adapter still not included

Amazon already had the best e-reader on the market with the Paperwhite. Amazon raises the bar with the Voyage, but pumps up the price tag at the same time.

Amazon Kindle Voyage review

 

The humble e-reader is the evolutionary equivalent of a duck-billed platypus: at some point, it fell off the family tree. It's been plotting its own course ever since, totally comfortable in its...

PagePress is a revelation for heavy readers ; Best E Ink I've seen ; Automatic brightness is great (and overdue)

Pricey compared to the Paperwhite ; Official Amazon case isn't good

Kindle Voyage (review): Amazon's second best e-reader

 

Although it's pricey, the Kindle Voyage's slim design, sharper display and even better lighting make it an attractive high-end e-book reader.

The Kindle Voyage is the summit of Amazon's e-reader line: it's the company's lightest touchscreen model ever, with the best resolution and contrast to date, better built-in lighting, a flush glass front and dedicated page-turn buttons.

It's not a huge upgrade over the Kindle Paperwhite, but it costs considerably more. And you'll pay more still for a case, which isn't included.

The Kindle Voyage is Amazon's best e-reader to date, and probably the best e-reader ever -- but it doesn't come cheap.

Kindle Voyage Review: Ereader Royalty

 

The ebook didn't kill the paperback, and Amazon is counting on the fact that not only hasn't the tablet killed the ereader, but that there's still room for a premium model in the shape of the Kindle Voyage. Fronted by an incredible e-paper display,...

The Kindle Voyage is undoubtedly the best ereader Amazon has produced. Its display is superb, its backlighting clean and smart, and it ticks the most important box of them all: being comfortable to hold and read for extended periods. You’ll pay...
