5.0 out of 5 stars Best Kindle yet!
By Natalie on 12 November 2018
Before deciding to buy this Kindle, I had been using the 2010 Kindle - the one with no keyboard and no touch screen, just the side buttons. I'd had no inclination to buy another Kindle, because the touch screen wasn't enough of a pull to spend more money on it. I had filled my 2010 Kindle with 18 pages of books and felt sad that I couldn't read it in the bath (my second favourite place) or at night in bed with the light off (my favourite place) I looked on the Amazon store to see how much the Kindle Paperwhite was, and saw this beauty!

Wow is all I can say! Amazon seemed to have packed everything you could possibly want into this Kindle Paperwhite! It's small and compact (see pictures), it has light control, it's waterproof, AND you can listen to Audible - all for £129.99! I was definitely sold from the word go!

I received it today and I have had a little play around with it and here's what I really like!

Pros
The new Kindle has no buttons around the edge and it's easy to grasp and keep ahold of.
It has Audible and is waterproof like the Kindle Oasis but at a fraction of the price
There are no fiddly buttons to change the page but instead a touch screen (very different to my Kindle 2010)
There isn't a frame that sits above the screen on this Kindle which makes it look lovely and fancy
There is a major amount of space compared to the Kindle I had (I have the 8gb which fits in all of my books and there is still more space)
You can set font profiles so if others are using it, it will alter to their preference with ease

Cons
The only possible con I can think of is I am going to have no time to sleep or socialise because I am going to be stuck reading on this.

Overall Amazon have done an amazing job with this new Kindle Paperwhite and at a fraction of the cost of the other high-end Kindles it sells.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another rushed product, sent out before efficient testing.
By Dave QA on 20 November 2018
So I very recently purchased a refurb 7th gen kindle paperwhite. I think it's an amazing bit of kit, wish I had got one years ago. It feels great to hold, appears to be durable. The screen feels like I'm reading from a page of an old book when I dim the brightness. (about halfway)

The new kindle came out, with more bells and whistles, so I purchased this knowing I could return my refurb one. Not that anything was wrong, just the newer one would be better.. Right? WRONG.

So I should start by saying, I did quality assurance for broadcasting, testing the equipment and more importantly the video output. So I'm straight up fussy quality assurance engineer.

The new kindle is very light, and very plastic.. It's an uchi fi feeling in your hand. Asif you've just purchased a cheap Chinese knock off. Does not give me confidence in its durability at all. Aswell as lack of surface grip on the back.

My biggest problem is the lightning. Its extremely radiant fluorescent. In other words, fake.. It totally takes away the authentic feeling of reading from a book. It's actually alot similar to a kindle fire tablet, without the glare. Though with a fire tablet, you're able to put blue shade on, which actually makes it more authentic than the new paperwhite kindle.

The image quality appears to have dropped too. Now I'm comparing the exact same small image on both kindle paperwhites, the latest has lower quality edges. This could be due to the lighting, as the black colour is more faded. Could also be due to different software..

The last thing, and this is purely personal preference; the white "Kindle" logo at the bottom of the paperwhite. This gripes me. There's nothing worse than having a logo so obvious in your eyesight. It's as bad as having a over empowering watermark on video. Every page you read will end in Kindle.

I was reluctant to replace a book with technology, but the kindle 7th gen made this transition alot easier with its authentic look of pages. I will be keeping it and returning the latest.

The picture I attached, will appear to show a much sharper latest kindle (on right), this is due to the back light. My camera was not set up for the white balance (I really wasn't going to go into this depth) but what it does demonstrate, is the 7th gen having a more authentic book look.
