Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review: the best ereader yet
8 March 2014

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review: the latest Kindle gets a new display
8 March 2014
Conclusion: The real draw of the Kindle continues to be Amazon’s gargantuan library of digital book content, including its 180,000 Kindle-exclusive titles. If the hardware is functional, then Amazon has done its job.
Summary: The best e-book reader is now even better. While not much has changed on the outside, lot of improvements have happened under the hood. There is a faster processor, the display is brighter, white looks purer and pages refresh quicker.
Pros: Pages turn and refresh faster, Much improved display, Battery life remains amazing
Cons: Design hasn't been freshened up, No wall-charger in the box, still
Conclusion: The Kindle Paperwhite isn’t a huge upgrade from the first generation, and it didn’t need to be. Amazon improved on all of the issues that critics called out last year, and added some great software features on top of that.
Pros: Comfortable design, Excellent display and reading light, Great software offerings and book extras, Speedy performance
Cons: Base price includes advertising, No microSD card slot, DRM and file format restrictions lock you to Amazon
Excerpt: With its sixth-generation Kindle e-reader, Amazon knows if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The new Kindle Paperwhite, still just $119, offers a nearly identical design and user interface as last year's model.
Excerpt: The Kindle Paperwhite eReader from Amazon tops today's eBook readers with the best features with the best pricing. For all those positives, it may not take top spot by as wide a margin as some reviewers opine.
Excerpt: The new Paperwhite isn’t a huge leap forward compared to Amazon’s first model. But unlike the smartphone world where marginal updates are supplemented with features no one will actually use, the Paperwhite’s incremental updates are actually useful.
Pros: Amazon continues to improve its e-ink screen and lighting features, which are nearly on par with an ecosystem that can’t be beat. The Page Flip feature is a fantasy-book reader’s wish come true with quick access to maps without losing your place.
Cons: Still no ability to create multiple accounts for adults reading the same book.
