Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition Review

 

Automatically adjusting front light ; Wireless charging support ; 32GB of storage ; No ads

Expensive ; New features don't make a big difference over the standard Paperwhite

Amazon's Paperwhite Signature Edition offers more features than standard model, including wireless charging and automatic front light adjustments, but they aren't worth the extra $50.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite updated with twice the memory, new waterproof design, small price hike

 

Amazon may have all but discontinued the recently, but t the company's new and improved takes some obvious design cues from the company's higher-priced models including the Voyage and Oasis.

A new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite with 8GB of storage and “special offers” is riced at $130. You can also pay $160 for a 32GB model. or$250 for a 32GB version with cellular connectivity.

The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition gives you tonnes of storage, a big 6.8-inch screen and wireless charging

6.8-inch screen ; Completely waterproof ; Wireless charging

More expensive than the Paperwhite

The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition is one of the best e-readers you can buy right now - it has 32GB of storage, a big 6.8-inch screen, automatic brightness, no ads and wireless charging. It is pricier than the standard Paperwhite but it's worth it!
