Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 November 2021
I'd had my previous Paperwhite for 7 or 8 years before deciding to upgrade to this latest model.

It's an e-reader so, I assumed it would be pretty similar to my previous Kindle. However, this is definitely a worthwhile upgrade. I've no experience of prior iterations, but this has provided me with an enormous leap in enjoyment.

That extra 0.8" screen just makes the pages feel a lot closer to books (my picture shows a larger font for reading at night without glasses - you can get loads more text on the page). The refresh rate is crisp and fast, truly delightful. I had no real problem with the lights on the previous model, but the 13 additional lights and warm light make everything so clear. The auto-adjusting light is also excellent.

Rarely am I surprised, but I am genuinely delighted with this upgrade.

PS: I am not sure why others are having problems with the free Kindle Unlimited trial, but I received this offer while setting up my device.
