Review: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
3 weeks ago
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. Are they enough to spur current Paperwhite owners to upgrade? Probably not. On the other hand, if you don’t already have one, this should definitely be your next e-reader.
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.
Summary: As far as the Kindle Paperwhite goes, it’s arguably the best e-reader you can buy if you’re a book worm. It’s a single-purpose device that allows you to focus on the words and cut out all of the distractions of today’s modern world. Minor UI quips aside, I very much enjoyed using the Kindle Paperwhite to fall into the world of literature once again, especially at night…in the dark. The e-reader’s death has been written on the wall since the first iPad launched in 2010.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review: the best ereader yet
8 March 2014
Excerpt: To say that Amazon has been the single most powerful catalyst in the ebook revolution would not be an exaggeration. Before the introduction of the Kindle , many who adored the printed page universally scoffed at ebook readers, claiming that such devices would never replace the traditional reading experience.
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. And the Kindle Paperwhite is as functional as it gets; every element of its design, from the front-lit, highly versatile screen to a new function that tracks your reading habits to determine how much time it’ll take you to finish the current chapter or book, is designed...
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3G Review (2013): Good just got much better!
11 February 2014
Summary: So is this the best ebook reader you can buy right now? Absolutely! Should the existing first-gen Kindle Paperwhite users consider upgrading to the new Kindle Paperwhite? Not really. Sure, the new Paperwhite offers improved display, faster speeds and other goodies, but spending over Rs 10,000 just to access these features is not advisable. Think of the number of new books you can buy with that money.
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. Since there are no changes to the design, most people will call the upgrade as incremental. But, for the real bookworm, all the under-the-hood tweaks make this infinitely better.
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. The high-quality display, even light, comfortable design, and speedy performance make for a great e-reader and a good value at $120. This asking price is in line with the competition, though you’ll have to put up with the Special Offers, i.e.
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
Summary: The revamped Kindle Paperwhite E Ink e-reader maintains its compact and lightweight design while adding some useful features such as parental controls and a vocabulary builder. We're also excited by the social features that will come with the Goodreads roll-out. Plus, if you're an Amazon Prime member, you'll be hard pressed to find a better deal on e-books.
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. We compared today's top gray-screened tablets that use metallic "ink" ( E Ink ) under their 6-inch screens to form letters and images.
