5.0 out of 5 stars The Upgrade I Never Knew I Needed
By mash of brands® 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it 🥰
By zita l j on 11 November 2021
Quarter of a second faster than my 7 years old kindle paperwhite, you can see by yourself, I love the larger screen, the light features, Bluetooth incorporated to listen audiobooks, and of course the dark mode, does it justify the price if you already own a previous paperwhite ? It does for me, as I read at night and the warm and dark mode lights are super helpful, and the extra screen size is just what I was craving. I was pretty happy with my previous paperwhite in terms of battery, I’ll update my review after I use this new paperwhite for a few weeks and notice a different. Overall great update!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to hold, nippy page turns, quick to wake up, long battery life.
By David on 15 November 2021
Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition 32GB

Screen size is its best and worst feature. Feels like reading a dinky book but is effortless to hold with one hand. Despite having the footprint of a standard book, once you factor in the bezels the reading area is still small. Cover art is a little hard to see/appreciate fully, when scrolling through lists. I couldn't exclusively use the kindle paperwhite without a larger colour device to browse for my next reading choices. One other advantage of the smaller size, including the larger bezel at the bottom, is that you don't have to move your eyes, and therefore your neck, quite so much. If you read the device on your lap, as I do, there's less eye/neck movement.

300ppi resolution but as the contrast isn't that high it's not immediately obvious. During daylight, the screen is a pleasure and a definite advantage. Doesn’t match traditional ink on paper; the screen is low contrast, laminated and inset slightly but for eye comfort, it's unbeatable. With the LEDs on, I find it comparable to a decent LCD re eye strain.

I don't use the auto light feature. I found that I prefer to stick to one compromise setting for all conditions (Brightness 12 / Warmth 13). Random light changes break my immersion somewhat. Note: The yellow in my photo is in fact a much redder orange, in real life. Unfortunately, my camera is a bit useless.

Very snappy page changes. Love the page turn animation. It's nothing fancy, but a nice touch all the same. The back doesn't have a rubberised feel like some suggest. It's more a very smooth, slightly textured plastic. The plastic over the screen isn't tough, so expect it to be prone to scratches, as will the back.

I didn't buy a third party (currently limited choices) or amazon case - I don't know whether true but I've heard they are no better than a cheaper generic version. I haven't used the wireless charging.

Quick recap.

Pros
Good battery life**
Light and easy to hold in most every reading position
Snappy page turns, quick to wake up from standby
Lighting is uniform. No obvious splotches or discolorations

Cons
Annoyingly placed power button on the bottom
Screen is still pretty small at 6.8
Screen plastic will be prone to scratches
You only get an USB-C to USB-A cable. No charger

** It's difficult to get an accurate read on the battery drain. I can get between 30mins to an 1hr per each %, other times it drops faster at 6-10 mins per %. Exact same settings and roughly the same environment. I guess it's not consistent across the battery scale but overall, it is long lasting.

Re 3 months free Kindle unlimited - added seamlessly for me. As an existing subscriber, the free months were added to the end of my current paid period.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it!
By River Scott-Tyler on 14 November 2021
I'm a book nerd I love reading and I've always said I'd never have a kindle as I prefer to hold an actual book, but I decided as I was letting too many books maybe its time I brought a kindle.

So i was pleased that a new model was coming out I've never used a kindle before so I can't compare with other models but I'm loving this one and I cam finally listen to audiobooks.. I love the size of the screen its light its just a really good kindle but I don't see how it's battery can last up 10 weeks on one charge especially if your listening to audiobooks and the reading

5.0 out of 5 stars Restful on the eyes
By Karen1234 on 17 November 2021
As you can see from the photo the print is very clear. Moving around the kindle is quick and light to the touch. My other kindle was nine years old so this one is a massive difference. Far quicker, and the graphics and print is much clearer. Loads of storage for books too.
