First-Ever Paperwhite Display

Paperwhite-the ultimate reading experience

Brilliant Resolution

The Paperwhite display offers 62% more pixels, and renders exceptionally sharp, clear text and images.

Stunning Contrast

Kindle Paperwhite's screen has 25% higher contrast. Crisp, dark text against a brilliant white background makes for the perfect read. p>

Up to One Month Battery Life

No battery anxiety - read for up to one month on a single charge.

Innovative Built-in Light

Paperwhite guides light towards the display from above instead of projecting it out at your eyes like back-lit displays, thereby reducing screen fatigue. You can adjust your screen's brightness to create a perfect reading experience in all lighting conditions, from bright sunlight to bedtime reading.

Uncompromised Battery Life

A single charge lasts up to eight weeks, based on half an hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10. The breakthrough power management technology allows you to leave the light on at all times for the best possible contrast without sacrificing battery life.

Escape into a great story Anytime. Anywhere

    here we go writing a review...

    Ok from where do i start complimenting this product should i start with its built in front light tech or its crisp 6 inch e-ink display or its responsive n fast touchscreen display or its capacity to hold more books you have read till now (because i havent read 1000 books yet)or should i tell you about its cloud storage feature or massive battery life which is measured in weeks or its x ray feature(sets pichung pichung in my mind).....omg....i have to stop now n what il do il start from the start

    I have a packed kindle
    BANG......product is out of the box
    BAM.........product its out of the plastic

    Now this review will really help you to decide instantly if its for you or not (yes for book lovers i am willing to do that as that serious i am :-))

    Physical Handling
    What i see is 6 inch thin and light e- ink touchscreen display device with semi rubberised for the excellent grip n at the same time good plastic feeling which fits like gloves in your hand n yes one hand will do the trick as you get a very good feel with firm grip while holding it as its perfect so for that full marks there
    plus it only has one button at the bottom besides the charging point which puts your kindle to standby mode or active or inactive or shutdown...blah blah depending upon the duration it is pressed for. ...

    Why paperwhite?

    There has been few kindles before but why paperwhite?
    I will tell you why because its the same reason for which i bought it and that my friend is its front-lit screen which gives us nerds to read our e-ink device at night also without using any other light source..... BOOM.....

    Now reason i am saying front lit is because on our phone, tablets they use back lighting which comes directly out from the screen and straight coming for your eyes hence the glare and hence leads to eye strain in 40 to 60 minutes because reading is purely your eyes so it hurts (and hurts even more when some interesting part in your book you are hanging to)
    But in kindle paperwhite light is front lit meaning its not coming to you directly as it guides light towards the display instead of projecting it out at your eyes like back-lit tablets hence you can read comfortably for hours(yes glare free) just like a book.

    And with this light you can adjust your brightness accordingly from dim light setting when you are reading in dark to bright settings when you are reading in brightly lit environment(no not when you are near sun)

    Crisp and clear text

    I dont want to bore you with this X this pixels and with it has thousands of pixels etc but mark it when i say this
    text is as clear as it can be as they are crisp because device has a good resolution hence very good contrast as black is more black and white is more white(true)

    Good decent processor

    800 mhz processor under the hood which is more than enough to flip thru your pages and move around between your books, opening and closing of books etc...


    Yes yes and yes it has a wifi feature too but for a limited use (because c'mmon its an e reader not a tablet)

    Wifi feature can be used to instantly to download a book under a minute whichever you like to buy from amazon meaning when you are done with one book and feel like buying another one you connect your device thru wifi go to amazone online store and read the review about the book you click on buy button and you have it under a minute(provided you have credit card info already feeded there) as simple as that.

    It has an experimental browser also with already stored famous websites like yahoo,google facebook,twitter,gmail etc as a bookmark.


    About Battey life (you can charge it with data cable provided from laptop or you can buy charger as charger not included)

    i am using it for 3 weeks now on an avg 3-4 hours a day with wifi sometimes on and with front light on at high setting and sometimes at very low settings, so after this much use my battery went down fom 100% to 40%
    i mean how cool is that, its amazing and its a very big advantage, i mean.... i cant say anything else. decide for yourself


    They say 2gb but we are left with 1.3 gb which again can hold many many many many.....books.....yeah many...


    If you are not satisfied with the storage here then no problem at all as amazon offers cloud service which gives you additional 5 gb of space on their cloud drive which you can access from your computer and upload your ebooks and you can then access it from your kindle and directly download it which is another very cool thing

    User interface

    It is great and simple you put your ebooks thru laptop using data cable in documents folder and books will appear on your device.
    On device you have home, back,brightness,shop,search,settings icons.

    Now when you open a book you can choose font size and word display style like baskerville,palatino etc which makes reading more fun with added line spacing and margins option.

    Then there is go to feature and X RAY feature while
    go to feature is for going to specific chapter and page

    BUT XRAY is a cool feature which gives you a jist of every character in the book i mean tap "X-Ray" to view a list of all passages from the book that mention the idea, person, or topic you're interested in. You’ll also be able to view more detailed information from Wikipedia and Shelfari.

    Then there is a dictionary feature which allows you to put your finger on the word of meaning you want and it will appear plus you can highlight it or sentence or para can make a note for yourself.

    All in all interface is amazing and very good.

    So above was all about pros what about cons?

    Below are the definite cons with my personal views on it


    Memory card slot not present (phew...)

    Epub book format not supported(seriously kindle what were you thinking)

    Lighting on the downside edges not uniform (what really...didnt bother)

    Does not have removable battery(again great product doesnt need that)

    Does not have audio support(its an e reader dah....)

    Screensaver ads(please r u kidding me..)


    If you are looking for very good, compact, price worthy, high standard benchmarked product with excellent after sales support(i first got faulty one n within 5 days of my complaint they shipped me new one to delhi from usa) think no more n buy this as it will win your heart.

    My rating
    BOOM 5 out of 5
