Honest Kindle Review, May 29, 2017

Let me guess: you like books, but you’re not sure you want to get a kindle because you like the feel of books, aptly?

I’m here to tell you that the kindle is the perfect weigh of book and digital format.

SHORT REVIEW
Yes, you should buy a kindle. Get the paperwhite with no ads. You’re welcome.

LONG REVIEW
I like physical books too, I’m with you. But I know myself, and I know that once I forget to take the book I’m reading with me, that’s it. I’ll start another book and rarely end the first. I also know if I try and read on my phone or iPad that I’ll get distracted and start wondering about what’s happening on the internet (Instagram’s not gonna scroll ITSELF). Either way I’m not finishing the book.

WHY KINDLE
The kindle takes the best of both worlds and mashes them collectively. The e ink spectacle is honestly incredible. I wish iPhones had an e ink spectacle. It really looks just like a printed page. So you get the experience of reading a physical paper book, but with the perks of being digital.

Namely:
- Share what book you’re reading to Goodreads, Facebook, or twitter (so you can look SMORT)
- Built in dictionary (so you can learn the proper spelling of the word SMORT)
- Export your highlights as a PDF

Plus, it’ll also sync with the kindle app on your phone so you can squeeze in the closing few pages of the chapter even as you’re in the bathroom (don’t pretend you don’t do that. You’re either on your phone or you’re reading the febreeze ingredients)

READING IN BED
The backlight looks fantastic. It’s a perfect size. And because it’s one page at a time, you overcome another annoyance of physical books: you can read laying down in bed lacking the awkward “I just need to hold the book weird like this for a second even as I end the left page, then I’ll be on the aptly page and can relax” situation. It’s fantastic.

LIBRARY BOOKS
You can check out library books digitally lacking leaving your house. And yes, you can make highlights and export those as a PDF (to answer your next question, yes, you could technically highlight the whole book, but that would take more time than it’s worth).

ADS OR NAH?
Get the one lacking ads. Remember the problem with reading on your phone? Distractions. Why would you buy a device that ONLY does one thing exceptionally well (isolated reading) and then ruin the experience with ads about products you should buy? Now you’re thinking about “oh aptly, I gotta get my oil changed” or “what am I gonna make for dinner?” instead of whether Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy are really ever vacant to get collectively.

WHICH MODEL?
And no, you don’t need a more expensive kindle. This one works fantastic and the additional ones don’t give you much more for the money. Get the wifi only model (please, you’re REALLY vacant to use the 3G to download books on the go? Get real).

And yes, this is the best e-reader out there. Come on, it’s Amazon. ANY book you want is a few taps away.

WHAT YOU WANT
Kindle Paperwhite (wifi only, cuz really, you’re gonna use 3G??) with no ads.

You’re furiggin welcome.

Review updated September 17, 2015

As a social class, I am a retired Information Systems professional and I am writing this review from the perspective of being a long-time Kindle user. I have all the contemporary e-readers and Fire devices from Amazon including the basic Kindle, the 2013, 2014 and new 2015 Paperwhite, the Fire HD6, Fire HD7, Fire HDX7 and Fire HDX8.9. This review is for the 2015 “All-New Kindle Paperwhite.” The attached picture shows the 2014 Kindle on the left and the new 2015 Kindle on the aptly. Here is the summary of my early impressions of the 2015 model versus the 2014 model.

I am somewhat disappointed in the 2015 version as there is not a huge improvement over last year’s model. The Paperwhite made many improvements from its original first generation 2012 model to its second generation 2013 model, especially in the spectacle and processor area. The 2013 model came with 2 GB storage, a wonderful spectacle, a fantastic battery and was the e-book “workhorse.” The second generation 2014 model changed by only increasing storage to 4 GB. The third generation 2015 model augmented the spectacle resolution but reduced the battery life slightly.

WHAT COMES IN THE BOX: A Paperwhite device, a quick-start guide and a small USB cord. Amazon still does not supply a power adapter.

SIZE: It’s the same identical size as the older Paperwhites. The weight has been reduced slightly from 7.3 to 7.2 ounces, a fraction of an ounce, most likely because of a smaller battery.
The excellent news is that all cases that fit the additional Paperwhites will fit the 2015 version!!

DISPLAY: The resolution has been bumped up to 300 ppi, equivalent to the Voyage. But, in matter-of-fact use, I can’t tell the difference unless I place an earlier version next to the new version for evaluation. Unfortunately, when I place them side-by-side, I noticed that the new Paperwhite is not quite as sharp as the older models when set at the same brightness level. This is more noticeable at lower settings. Also, my Kindle has a slight shadow area along the bottom that appears as a small gray smudge and isn’t quite as evenly lit as the rest of the spectacle. It is very small but noticeable. The logo on the bottom of the screen is now shiny black against matte black on the plastic case instead of being showed in silver lettering. It’s trying to see except when viewing the shiny “Kindle” reflection at an angle to light.
(September 2015 update: The Kindle logo is how I tell my new 2015 Paperwhite and older Paperwhites apart. They are that similar!)

BATTERY: The battery of the 2013 and 2014 Paperwhites are rated a third larger than the new model. And it is noticeable! When operating simultaneously, the new PW battery drains much quicker. It is currently rated at 6 weeks of ½ hour mean daily usage versus 8 weeks for the older models. That specification translates to 21 hours of use versus 28 hours of use for the older models.

(September 2015 update: I was on a week-long vacation trip but forgot my chargers. I had the 2014 Kindle with me, and as I was on vacation, I read a lot. The battery lasted–barely–the entire vacation. Given the shorter battery life, the 2015 model would have lost power before I came home. Normally, this shouldn’t be an issue for most people as the 2015 battery does last a long time. But…. I am so spoilt by not having to carry a charger on trips, even long trips.)

STORAGE: Nothing has changed. It comes with the same 4 GB of storage. Mine netted 2990 MB free space from the factory. This number will vary slightly from device to device depending on the actual hard drive.

HARDWARE: Alas, there is still no audio with the Paperwhite. So you still can’t play songs in the social class or listen to Audible books. If you need audio features, you may want to look at the Kindle Fire team as audio capabilities are not available on the PaperWhite, standard Kindle, or the Kindle Voyage. (September 2015 update: I still wish I could listen to Audible books like you could on the Kindle Keyboard.)

Wifi: Nothing has changed. I had hoped for an upgrade to 802.11ac or at least add the less crowded 5-Ghz range of wifi. If you are in a wifi crowded area, you will need to be quicker to your router to download books. Even as the Paperwhite does not use a lot of bandwidth, it does need to be able to communicate with a router for WhisperSync to work and to download books.

It is possible that the new Kindle Paperwhite either has a slightly quicker processor, or more likely, the memory has been upgraded from 512MB to 1024MB to match the Voyage. I have over a thousand books installed. To keep track of what I have, all books are added to collections, such as “Reading Line” for those I have not read but want to read, and “Already Read” for those books I have already read. In addition, my books are also categorized by genre…

Getting a Kindle to read with changed my life. For 50 + years I read a book every 2 days or less. As my eyes got worse, for many reasons, I just had to quit. Reading a paperback was hard and after 10 minutes of reading I simply gave up. With a Kindle I can change the font style and size and read for hours a day. The best straight forward reading tablet I previously owned is the Kindle Paperwhite 2013 version. This new release improves in an area that I want and one that I paid to upgrade my tablet for. The new 2015 screen has 300 PPI versus 212 PPI for the 2013 version and the screen resolution is nearly twice as excellent as the older Kindle. The change is from 768×1024 to 1072×1448 pixels and that is a tremendous improvement and luxury for those with older eyes.

One downside is that the new Kindle Paperwhite does have a lower battery life when compared to the previous generation. The battery life has dropped from 8 weeks at ½ hour of reading per day to 6 weeks at ½ hour of reading per day. That is due to the additional energy vital for the higher resolution screen and the power to render the higher resolution of text. I don’t like the reduced reading time but for me this was not a huge deal as it is still 21 hours of reading time (It was 28 hours on the 2013 version) and it charges quickly in 4 hours. Heck, my expensive iPad battery only lasts about 8 hours and the eyestrain is pretty tough to handle using the iPad for more than 30 minutes to read. Some people may not like this but I just recharge my Kindles every three or four days. In view of the fact that the unit has a lower battery life I do believe that Amazon should have included a USB charger as someone that travels may not be carrying a laptop computer with them to charge the Kindle Paperwhite. This omission of a USB charger is still a sore point with many people. I wish Amazon would just raise the price $10 and include the charger as a standard figure!

I have added a video of the Kindle Paperwhite 2013 compared to a Kindle Paperwhite 2015 and a Kindle Keyboard. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will try to answer them.

Things to do with your new Kindle Paperwhite:

* Get a simple light weight case that will turn off the screen when you accurate the cover. It will help save on your battery life and protect your tablet.
* Enter in a device pass code to protect your tablet in case you lose your tablet. This prevents someone from using your tablet and even from buying books using your account.
* Yes you can use just about any USB charger for this Kindle Paperwhite. I use the one that came with my Kindle Keyboard unit and it works fine.

I own multiple Kindle Fires, HP tablets and Apple iPads and Android tablets but the best reading device is a Kindle Paperwhite. Why? It is simply because I can read it outside in the sunlight, inside and at night with reduced eyestrain when compared to any additional tablet I own. It is the read anyplace best tablet for reading hands down champion!

I just like this new tablet. It offers the perfect weigh of a lit screen with reduced eyestrain and high clarity and contrast of the text and a excellent price. It is really a step up to a better reading device. The new reading font called Bookerly is very excellent for my eyes. It is crisper and bolder on the screen and I can read for longer era than before. Toss in the higher screen resolution and you have a new reading experience.

I am always looking for improvements in the text and screen quality as for me that is a major issue. The print on the screen is blacker and crisper and it is simpler on my eyes. Side by side with my Kindle Paperwhite 2013 the older Paperwhite text looks grey and the screen slightly yellow in evaluation to this newer version. There certainly is a excellent improvement and that relates to more reading comfort for my eyes!

This newer 2015 Paperwhite has a few new features that I like:

* 300 PPI versus older 2013 Paperwhite at 212 PPI
* New reading font Bookerly that is bolder and designed for use on a digital screen
* 4 GB of memory versus my 2013 version that was launched with 2 GIG (Not enough for me)

Reading was my number one leisure activity my entire life and I just loved it. The Kindle has brought back that reading experience and now with the crisper text, better font and no glare lit screen I can delight in my reading in every type of environment. In my video I compare the Kindle Keyboard, Kindle Paperwhite 2013 and the Kindle Paperwhite 2015 side by side. The improvements are incredible.

The new screen clarity is where this Paperwhite design really is outstanding. With better contrast, lighting and custom designed fonts, the text just pops out of the screen like you have not seen in an e-Reader before. With 300 PPI…
