A Review of Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2015)
The third-generation Amazon Kindle Paperwhite was released in June 2015. So, it’s not the newest and most advanced e-reader now but you also can’t think that it is not the best Kindle. This kindle has significantly got success over Kindle Oasis, which is the one of most expensive e-reader. This paperwhite has the competition with Kindle Voyage, which is light weighted and has comparatively more features, but it still has managed to make its place in the market.
We will give you the review of this Kindle Paperwhite and then you will know why this is our choice of Kindle despite price alternatives, even in the year 2017.
What’s New In This Paperwhite 2015
- 205g (Wi-Fi) / 217g (3G)
- 169 x 117 x 9.1mm
The design of the Kindle Paperwhite hasn’t changed much In fact, it is very much similar to Kindle model of 2013 and 2012, besides a subtle change to the logos of Amazon and Kindle.
The Paperwhite is made up of the plastic body but it doesn’t look or give a feel of being cheap. This is a solid device that comes with a tactile back casing, which makes it not only pretty to hold but also avoids the problem of greasy fingerprints.
The Micro-USB and power button have silhouette detailing and the front of the device has wide bezels and all these things make it better than 2013 model. These types of bezels create criticism on mobile phones but on e-Book reader, it offers some type support to thumb for holding it.
If we talk about Wi-Fi only model or 3G and Wi-Fi model, this Paperwhite is not less than a smartphone in any way. Also, the weight 205g/217g of this Paperwhite can’t be considered as heavy in comparison to Kindle Voyage which is the lighter one.
