  1. My Kindle Paperwhite 7th gen (released 2015), was still working fine when I upgraded to this. I have been waiting for the USB – C Kindle, and I’m now officially micro-usb free. I traded in and paid the extra to get the wireless charging so that, when this Kindle lasts many years to come, I can still use it when we’re someday cable-free entirely.At a high level, this Kindle is a terrific device. Until color Kindles come out some day years from now, it’s going to be perfect for reading use. It’s lightweight and a pleasure for me to use with one or two hands. All my minor complaints aside, I truly love this device and use it daily. I have no complaints with regard to my daily use. If you have the Kindle paperwhite I had before, it’s not worth upgrading unless you want to treat yourself. I have no regrets about the purchase, as I wanted to treat myself. If you don’t have a Kindle, this is the best, and you will enjoy it.The reasons I upgraded:-Larger screen. Nice, not necessary but apprecated-Dark mode. Old generations didn’t have this (thanks, Amazon, for artificially limiting older generations’ software)-USB-C. I was way too excited about this, but I stand by it.I was concerned that the flush glass screen would be worse than my old paperwhite’s recessed screen. It is, but not noticeably so, which I’m pleasantly surprised to say. It’s less paper-y than the old Kindles, but makes the Kindle look very clean and crisp. It’s plenty responsive, and there’s still enough bezel to hold it without touching the screen.It also has the same ppi (Pixels per inch) of my 2015 Kindle, and the new screen type makes it less clear because of the layers. I was concerned about that too, but it’s not noticeable.Side-loading books is still very easy with new versions of Calibre.Dark mode is great for reading in bed with the lights off without bothering a partner next to you in bed. I upgraded primarily for the dark mode, as regular mode is too bright for me when I’m trying to go to sleep (same for real books with a reading light).It wirelessly charges on both of my phone chargers, one of which is one of the stand-style chargers (like the Amazon-branded Kindle one). I’m a little surprised that the larger Kindle still works on my phone’s charging stand, and it is an excellent little surprise.A couple other notes for you future owners:-Don’t buy the Amazon-branded cases for this generation. They’re a rip-off and poorly designed this generation. There are many generic cases that work just as well, such as Ayotu’s. I use that case for when I travel with the Kindle in a bag.-Don’t buy the Amazon-branded USB wall adapters. They’re ridiculously overpriced, and their maximum wattage is below the Kindle’s maximum charging wattage. Amazon scam.-Don’t buy the Amazon Kindle charging stand. It’s got a weird proprietary cable to hook into the wall. You’re better off getting one flat wireless charging pad, as pretty soon (if you’re not already there), your phone, earbuds, and Kindle will all charge wirelessly, and a flat pad will be able to fit all of them. How often will you really need to charge your Kindle, anyways?-I got a Harris Tweed sleeve from SarahJayneDesi9ns on Etsy, and highly recommend it. It’s beautiful.Other miscellaneous gripes:-It’s a ripoff that Amazon charges for you to remove ads from a product you bought, but that’s not relevant to this version, as there is no ad version with wireless charging.-It’s a ripoff that I couldn’t have dark mode on my old paperwhite. It’s black and white. It’s not too difficult to push a software update to it to make it white and black. They just wanted me to upgrade (and it worked). Buying this product supports that corporate mentality.-The screen is the same ppi and slightly blurrier than my 2015 Kindle.-To reiterate, the main upgrades are a charging port that Android phones have used since 2008 and a software update that they wouldn’t let my 2015 Kindle have.I still love this Kindle and will use it daily for years to come. For being a mainstream product, I really appreciate Kindles’ longevity, and I truly hope this one will last for years like the previous generations have.

  2. So I came into possession of this little guy due to a late night Amazon impulse buy a few days before leaving for vacation. I was going on a weeklong trip with my family and didn’t want to have to bring my ipad (what I usually use to read) or any actual books with me on the plane. Let me preface this by saying I am an avid reader, spending the majority of my free time reading…and have been for most of my life. My siblings lament to anyone listening about the horror of summer road trips, riding in the back of our family sedan, fighting for leg room because I always had at least 5-6 books at my feet to read during our travels. You should hear the way my sister grumbles at even the mere mention of a car ride with me (She horribly dramatic) but I digress. I also used to have a nook e-reader, an original model Kindle from way back in the day that no longer works, and have the kindle app on my ipad which I use to read most days. So I am familiar with e-reading. This kindle is quite possibly the best purchase I’ve ever made. It’s basically pocket sized so it was extremely portable. I brought it with me everywhere; On the plane, in the car, in my bag to restaurants…I even managed to fit it in a particularly spacious pocket of an oversized jean jacket I wore on cooler nights. It’s amazing. It was comfortable enough to hold in one hand, or two, depending on what I preferred at the time. The various light options on the kindle, including the warm light feature makes it easy to read regardless of where I was and what kind of lighting is available, without eye strain. I shared a room with family for a couple of nights and the dark mode feature barely emits light past my immediate person, so I was able to read into the wee hours of the morning if I wanted to without disturbing my family sleeping in the same room, or sacrificing my precious reading time. ( I get particularly sassy if I’m interrupted in the middle of a discovering a plot twist in a juicy novel, i’m just saying). You are able to customize lots of the settings, such as the fonts, size, spacing and layout, so that the books look however you want them to while reading. (I definitely used that feature to make the font smaller and more compact while I read an embarrassingly cringleworthy, but suprisingly emotional and fantastic, harlequin romance novel while on the plane. It’s nobody’s business why I was practically sobbing into my complimentary pretzels after the protagonists romantic interest declared his love to her for the first time, thank you very much) I also may, or may not have had a TINY accident in which I spilled my entire 32oz water bottle full of water all over my pants and my kindle. After squealing in alarm at how cold the water was, I was able to get my bearings, wiped the water off the kindle, changed my pants and continued reading. I have noted no damage whatsoever to my kindle and that was at the beginning of my trip well over a week ago now. After reading every day for at least 4-6 hours per day/night for 7 days straight I had 57% battery left over. I think the battery is supposed to last for 2 weeks maybe? IDK. Basically it lasted a long time, long enough for me to be impressed. Also, I downloaded at least 15 new books on there, not to mention the impressive collection of books I already owned and was able to sync to the device, and I still have over 4GB of space available to use. I have since named the kindle Kurt, as I feel emotionally connected to the device after our adventures together these past weeks. If you are a super bookworm like me, or are just trying to finish a whole book for the first time, I highly recommend this device for purchase. I think it was worth the money a thousand times over. And if after reading this you do decide to purchase it, I hope you love it just as much as I do.

  3. Everyone has a smartphone these days, so at this point the Kindle is for one very particular audience: people who want to read a lot of books, and read them with a minimum of distractions. With this version, Amazon has refined the Kindle to the point where it’s just about ideal for this purpose. I’ve owned several previous Kindles, including an early Paperwhite, and currently own a couple of iPads, an iPhone, and a MacBook. For the purposes of long, immersive reading sessions, this Kindle is my best option. The battery life is long enough so that even with constant reading you only have to recharge once or twice a week (you can extend that by turning off wireless). The Kindle also has by far the best screen for immersive reading: it’s sharp and clear, with many options for different lighting conditions ranging from bright sunlight (Kindles leave tablets in the dust as far as bright-sun reading is concerned) to pitch black (the dark mode format is ideal for this). You can choose whether to read with a vertical orientation or a horizontal one — and this option of a horizontal orientation allows you (among other things) to read poetry on a Kindle without imposing premature line breaks. This Kindle is also extremely light and easy to hold for hours on end (my iPad mini is too heavy for that). And as with all Kindles, you can adjust the type size and font so that reading is comfortable for you – I love paper books, I really do, but I need bigger type.In a way, though, what’s best about this Kindle is what it doesn’t have. You can’t read your email. You can’t go on social media. Amazon’s Kindle browser is perpetually “experimental” — good! I pick up the Kindle when I want to read books, not when I want to lose my afternoon down an internet rabbit hole. That said, you do get just enough of the internet to assist in your reading. From within any book you can look up unfamiliar names/places on Wikipedia, and there’s a great built-in dictionary too. (You can download dictionaries for any language you read, and set them as your default in settings). But apart from those features, the internet might as well be on Mars. Fine by me. If I want to look at videos of puppies or lose my temper about politics, I have my phone (and several other machines, unfortunately). When I look at my Kindle, I can feel my blood pressure go down. More to the point, I can hide my phone under a cat and read books for hours and hours.That might not be your idea of an ideal afternoon. If it is, and you know who you are, this Kindle is pretty inexpensive and much lighter and easier to carry than tablets or physical books. It allows you to carry thousands of books around with you and then sit and read them without distractions. It’s limited in its other functions – and that’s exactly what makes it ideal.As you can probably tell from the above review, I have the patience of a gnat when it comes to content I don’t want to see, and for that reason I opted for the ad-free version. This allows me to have the lock screen be the cover of the current book I’m reading, which is extremely endearing. That said, the version with ads does not insert ads into your books; they’re not obtrusive in that way. So you can definitely save a few bucks by getting the version with ads – it won’t mess with your reading experience.

  4. I’m an avid reader & always wanted a reader for all my books – just my books. Bought this for my introduction into Kindles as I never had one before and I decided why not try it out. Can’t say it was a bad one – actually it was a very good one. Took the Paperwhite Kindle 6.8″ locked ad 16gb for my first and I appreciate it. Got me the Kindle + Kindle unlimited subscribtion.What I like about the Kindle:This reader is wonderful and saves my eyes from the glare of the phone or tablet I once used. Apart from the glare free screen, I like that I can be on a bus reading, with the sunlight pouring through, or sitting outside in the bight environment of day light and I have no problems reading the screen. At night, I can set the screen and read comfortable as well. Yes, its easy on the eyes. The ads run when the screen is closed and isn’t a bother while on & reading. The kindle goes on for days without having to charge. YES! I had to test out that particular line “up to 10 weeks of battery life”. 10 weeks is a stretch if you’re a reader reading daily – If you’re a reader who reads off and on or every two days or so, it could probably last up to 10 weeks. But as long as you’re a frequent user reading – it can last up to about 10 days (almost or 2 weeks). The battery life is great! I also decided to try the waterproof theory but not too much (lol) I was reading one day while at a funeral, and rain decided to pour down a bit. I stood there under the light drizzle but not the pouring rain – so, i’ll say the screen is waterproof, not sure about the emersion theory. Definitely good on storing books. Before I received my kindle, as an author new to the Bookstagram community, I found some good deals such as “Stuff Your Kindle Day” or other free books download and began downloading to my account. When received my E-reader, and got it set up, had about almost 3000 books. So, the storage is pretty okay. I don’t have Audible nor a subscription for audio books – so, I can’t exactly say that the audio hands free is a go. I have to give this a try as I have a audio book trial to listen to and will give an update on this later.Perspective:The device is great, easy to use, great for traveling with. It’s thin, lightweight and battery life last long (not the whole 10 weeks) like I explained above (rolls eyes). Definitely can use at the beach, river, waterfalls, springs (bodies of water) as long as you’re careful not to lose it (lol). Shades of pages can be changed, or you can schedule the light changes, Can adjust the size of the font you wish to use to read. The screen is black and white – as in the colored cover of books won’t be seen. But I’m good with that. This is only for Amazon Kindle reader – No other books apps can be used on the kindle. You can read, pdf files (don’t really like how some of these pdfs read on it & I more prefer the epubs), epubs. Haven’t bothered to try other files…I do know that on my app on my phone, png, jpeg would be seen. I think it’s good for the price I got it for.Recommend or Not?Why not? If you’re new to the books e-readers like me, I see nothing wrong in giving it a chance to see if you’re into having just a kindle or if you’d prefer a tablet e-reader where you can have the Kindle app and other ebook apps as well for your reading. (If you looking for a reader to host kobo, bookfunnel library, booksprout app, etc then buy a tablet this won’t do). If you have no problem with having a read that shows your book covers black & white, sure get it. There are other kindle that cost more with the colored cover display.Other than that, Yes I recommend it.

  5. This isn’t quite the top of the line for Kindles, but it’s close. That honor would go to the Scribe, with the Oasis possibly taking second place, though we haven’t seen a new Oasis in a while. It sports more memory than the regular Paperwhite, and I think that’s particularly worth it if you’re using Audible on the device. It would take a lot of text-based books to fill 8 gig never mind 16.I want to compare ereaders, then compare ebooks to print.If you are going to use this for audiobooks, it’s hard to ignore the Nook from B&N as a competitor to this. The Glowlight 4 is about the same size as this and the 4 plus is a bit larger. All of these sport 32 gig of memory, are waterproof, and have about the same screen type.The advantage of the Nook is you get a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as being able to connect headphones via Bluetooth. The Kindle is limited to Bluetooth.The advantages of the Kindle are first that it supports Audible. If you have a subscription already, that becomes a no-brainer. If not, there are a lot of titles on Audible that B&N doesn’t have. If those interest you, you’re better off with the Kindle, and you’ll want the larger memory.Second, transfering your own documents wirelessly to the device is substantially easier on Kindle. Just email it, or use the website, or send it to the app on your phone. Nook requires you use a USB cable and then find the right folder to put it in. This is a win for the Kindle, but any Kindle, not just Paperwhite Signature.Third, market dominance. The demise of Nook is often predicted (I don’t think they’re going anywhere, but that’s merely my prediction based on market share over time) but no one in their right mind thinks Kindle, with a commanding 80+% market share at the time of this review, is going anywhere.For free books, Kindle has the monthly subscription to unlimited, Nook gives out a free books (or sometimes audiobook) every Friday. Prime subscribers can pick a free book (sometimes two) from a small selection at the beginning of the month. Overall, I’ll call that a toss up.I use both, but if I could have only one, I’d go with the Kindle.If you’re deciding between Kindles, the Oasis is smaller despite having a slightly larget screen and physical buttons (the bezel is much smaller) and it has cellular. The Paperwhite Signature has USB-C (not a big deal in my opinion) and wireless charging (and the stand they sell for that is absolutely amazing). The Paperwhite Signature is also substantially less expensive.The Scribe supports the pen and has built in notebooks, making it kind of a hybrid between the Supernote and the Kindle. That’s the big win there. The win for the Paperwhite Signature is that it’s waterproof, smaller, and less expensive.The basic Kindle is also worth looking at on a budget. It has less memory and isn’t waterproof, but it’s extremely affordable. This is the one I’d take with me into situations where I’d worry about it getting lost or damaged because it’s the easiest to replace. This is also the one I’d give a kid, for the same reason, and also the one I’d suggest someone start on if they’re not sure if they’ll like ebooks. It really is a nice device. I use mine a lot.The Paperwhite regular sports less memory, but is a fine contender if you only want ebooks, no audio. You can only go up to 16 gig memory there, no wireless charging. It’s front lit, but not automatically adjusting and it has ads.On the topic of ads, I’ve seen memes that seem to suggest they pop up while reading. While this model has no ads, if you’re considering another don’t let that stop you. They are on the sleep screen. They don’t interfere with reading. It’s one of the myths told by the “dead tree only” crowd. The others are:You can’t dogear them. Well, you can, only you can also remove the dogear without leaving a trace, so that’s actually a win in the ebook column.You can’t mark them up. Again, you can and you can undo, but because the space is not limited to the page, you can add larger notes here than would be supported in print books, particularly those with thin margins.You can’t use them if the battery dies. The battery lasts weeks for me and I’m a heavy reader. I have never found myself unable to use my Kindle because I was in some foresaken wasteland without access to power. I can even recharge my device for free on the bus if I have my cable with me (I usually do). I have found myself reading a book I lost interest in while out and about and using a Kindle (or any ereader), that’s no issue. With print it used to be.You can’t use it near water. This one is waterproof. I’ve never seen a print book that wasn’t destroyed if you got it soaking wet. I’m not even sure where that myth came from. I can say my Paperwhite Signature fell into a sink full of water and didn’t care.You retain more from print books. I’m putting this one in the myth column because I don’t trust the methodology. First, they were only using iPads with notifications turned on. Then, when enough people cried, foul they used the Kindle DX (giant, wonderful device; I wish they’d revamp and reintroduce those). Only they only selected people who’d never used one before.I recently spoke to someone involved and we discussed why they didn’t include audiobooks. Participants get 15 minutes to read about 25 pages. The print folk just get the book and start reading. The ebook folk get a lecture on how to use it before they start reading, but the lecture cuts into the 15 minutes. Ever wonder why the studies also show people on ebooks read faster? If they threw in audiobooks they’d have to allow enough time for participants to hear the story at normal speed.I want an apples to apples comparison, with people experienced with ebooks and identical reading times before I’ll trust this. On a side note, if you want to remember what you read better regardless of medium, check out Moonwalking with Einstein (available on Kindle).One thing the “dead tree only” crowd won’t talk about is the environmental impact. The impact of ebooks has always been better than that of print, but we’ve come so far in so little time, that a modern ereader like this one has the same impact as 14 print books. Once you read your 15th book on this, you net an environmental win.Another thing is accessibility. Any book can transform immediately into a large print book while remaining light and easy to hold and carry.Then there’s lighting and the ability to read anywhere. I read in bed with the lights off. If you have a kid who “sneaks” a book under the cover, this makes it easier and reduces eye strain.Then there’s the ability to text search for something you forgot and want to reference. I can barely stand print books for the inability to find some random tidbit easily.That and you get to keep your entire library. I’ll always have nightmares about helping a little old lady who loves to read move into assisted living and having to discard the bulk of her library. The bulk of my library sits in my purse. And you can have the same book on multiple “shelves”. That’s how I get around the “is Star Wars science fiction or fantasy” debate. It lives in both.So for me, ebooks win overall, and if I have to go with one line, it’s Kindle. Amongst the Kindle, my favorite is usually the Scribe for non-fiction (for the ability to take notes) and this for fiction (for the most comfortable form factor) with the base model being used in some situations.

  6. It was time to update my Kindle and I have loved it from the start. The lighting is wonderful. I like to read in bed an adjusting the warmth and brightness are so easy and it’s soothing so as not to disturb anyone. This one seems like it will go warmer than earlier versions. Also great for night flights.Haven’t bothered with a screen saver and it ha remained smudge free. Fits in a regular sized purse and it has already been traveling since it’s so lightweight, strong and clear to read even in bright sunlight.This one has more memory than I had before so I’m also starting to save some documents on it, which I’ve never done before.

  7. I’ve always been a bit old-school when it comes to reading; there’s somthing about the heft of a book in your hands, the scent of the paper, and the sound of turning pages that’s just so comforting. But I have to say, the new Kindle Paperwhite has completly won me over.The screen is a real standout feature. It’s bigger than the older models, which means less page-turning and more continous reading. Plus, the backlight has this warm tone that’s really easy on the eyes—I’ve spent countless nights reading without any strain.It’s also super thin and light, which means I can throw it in my bag and not even notice it’s there. And since it’s waterproof, I don’t have to panic if I’m caught in the rain or if I want to read by the pool.But the battery life is what really blows me away. I charge it once, and it lasts for weeks. It’s perfect for someone like me who’s always forgeting to plug things in.And the books—oh, the books! There are so many to choose from, and it’s so easy to download them. I’ve been branching out into genres I never would have considered before, all because they’re right there at my fingertips.I have to admit, I’m pretty hooked on my Kindle Paperwhite. It’s just so convenient and user-friendly. I can change the font size, look up words as I read, and carry a whole library around with me. It’s not just a gadget; it’s a treasure trove of stories waiting to be discovered.Looking back, I can’t believe I waited so long to get one. It’s not just an e-reader; it’s been a gateway to rediscovering my passion for reading in this busy, digital age. If you’re on the fence about getting an e-reader, I can’t recommend the Kindle Paperwhite enough—it might just turn you into a bookworm, like it did for me.I’ve since bought two more, one for my mom and one for my dad.

  8. I got this for my 14 year old daughter for her birthday. She LOVES to read! All she really wanted for her birthday was books. So I got her this and gave her a million books. The screen is the perfect size. It’s comfortable to hold, lightweight, simple to use. No issues with connectivity. Overall, excellent quality book reader. Oh…and the battery life is amazing!!

  9. This kindle packs a lot of power in a small size. I love that I can just pop in my purse and off. I can hold it in one hand and fits perfectly. The appearance is so impressive. Using it is very easy and the page quality is easy to read.
