Kindle Paperwhite

Unsurpassed high resolution - reads like real paper

Kindle Paperwhite has an improved high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp, print-quality text.

Next-generation reading experience

Kindle Paperwhite introduces our most readable font, Bookerly. Designed from the ground up, Bookerly offers a lighter, more graceful look, much closer to traditional print than to computer displays for enhanced readability, particularly for long-form reading. With improved character spacing and the addition of hyphenation, justification, kerning, ligatures and drop-cap support, Kindle’s best-in-class typography allows you to read more easily and quickly with fewer page turns.

No glare in bright sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the latest Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper – no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight.

Won't tire your eyes in the dark

Kindle Paperwhite guides light towards the surface of the display with its built-in front light – so you can read comfortably without straining your eyes. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light.

Charge monthly, not daily

Kindle Paperwhite won't leave you tethered to a socket. A single charge can last up to six weeks (based on half an hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at ten).

Read comfortably with one hand

Thinner than a pencil, lighter than a paperback. Hold Kindle Paperwhite comfortably in one hand for long reading sessions.

No distractions

Kindle Paperwhite is purposely designed as a dedicated E-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions such as e-mail alerts or push notifications.

4. Once you switch on the device it automatically guides you about how to use it and register. Also there is a User's Guide Ebook in Kindle which explains all functions.
5. Screen is Glare Free much better than a smartphone or tablet. You can read even in bright Sunlight. If the backlight is turned Off, reading Screen's white portion is yellowish just like the paper of books. That's why it is called Paperwhite.
6. There are two separate models of Kindle Paperwhite. One with only Wifi and other one with Wifi and 3G. The 3G model has free internet usage. You will not be required to pay internet charges for downloading books from Amazon in 3G model.
7. Don't get depressed after buying. It will take some time to adjust to reading on Kindle from Hard books. You will love it once you start reading on Kindle.

12. Electrical rating written on box says "5.25v == 500mA MAX". Therefore do not buy charger with rating more than 0.5Amp.
13. Battery life is long enough. It will last 6 Weeks, if you read half an hour daily. Provided you keep wifi off and set the brightness level at 10 (Kindle Paperwhite).
14. There are 24 levels of brightness. For me Level 7 is enough for reading even in darkness.
15. I never need to charge it. I connect to my PC everyday for USB synchronization for 5 minutes. That is enough for charging this device.
16. While charging Kindle, Orange indicator light is On, When fully charged the indicator light turns to Green.
17. Though the data cable comes with kindle. Any mobile data cable will work with this.

When you open a book for first time on Kindle, The Kindle asks you to mark the book as 'Currently Reading' on Goodreads.

31. You can download Encyclopedia and Thesaurus from the web in Kindle format. It will make your Kindle much more useful device. The site is
32. There is an experimental browser inbuilt in Kindle. You can use it to browse internet. It is experimental means it does not have all the features of a browser. If you want to find some information on Google quickly, you can use this browser on Kindle, rather than booting your computer. But it doesn't show the mobile version of the website, It shows the desktop version of the website that's why the webpage text is so small that you have to zoom it by expanding your fingers then scroll from left to right to read each line. It has Back and Forward Navigation, Bookmarks, History and Article Mode. In Article mode, it will delete all images and advertisements and present the webpage text neatly formatted as an article.
33. All ebooks you purchase from Amazon are stored in Cloud (Manage Your Content and Devices), From there, they are downloaded and synced across all your kindle devices and apps.

36. There is a free software K2pdfopt on the net which optimizes pdf documents for reading on Kindle device but it increases the file size more than 5 times. But I use WPS Office App on my Android phone to read PDFs. It has 'Mobile View' which optimizes PDF file for viewing on mobile.
37. You can read any article on internet on your kindle device neatly formatted and in azw3 format. There are bookmarklets for this like Tinderizer, Readability,, Instapaper(Instapaper sends article without images). There are chrome extensions for sending articles to kindle by Amazon,, I use Tinderizer bookmarklet, it is the best.
38. You can also read RSS feeds from different websites and blogs on your Kindle. The sites which send rss feeds to your Kindle are,,,,,, But these sites are not much useful. Calibre free software is best for sending RSS feeds to your Kindle device.

If you buy a Smartphone or Tablet and download Kindle App. It will become a big screen, Coloured, multipurpose device but you will need to charge your Smartphone/Tablet everyday for hours. You cannot read Smartphone/Tablet in Sunlight and their screens are not glare free.
You can download and use Kindle Software for Desktop PC also.
OR you can use Kindle Cloud Reader on your Chrome Browser.
51. If you are a regular reader of books and read atleast 30 mins daily and if you read western books also then you may need Kindle. But if you are irregular reader and only read sometimes then better option is to buy about 15 hard books for Rs. 3000 than spending Rs 9000 for Kindle Paperwhite and save Rs.6000.
52. Kindle device has been replaced by Smartphones. These days almost all books are available on your smartphone through apps. They are customized for viewing on smartphone. There is android app called AnyBooks (Muses Lab) it has Thousands of the known and famous books available for free to read. If you like to read or listen to summary of self help books then use StoryShots (Parsida AB), Any Book Summary (AARK) android apps. If you want to read or listen to summary of books in Hindi then use GIGL (GIGL-APPLICATIONS), Pocket FM, Yebook android app. If you want to listen to famous or classic audiobooks then use LibriVox (BookDesign) android app. I use Moon+ Reader for reading ebooks on Android Smartphone.

1. Packing without thermocol or anything else to prevent shock
2. Kindle should come bundled with Wall Charger and Carrying Case at the same price.
3. White and Grey color should be available for all Kindle models.
4. Hard User guide that comes with Kindle has just one page in English and It tells how to switch on the device, that's all.
5. Complete Technical specifications should also be included in the User Guide.
6. Screen is completely Black and White. No Colours. It cannot play Video, Audio or Games.
7. Amazon should try to make E-Ink Screen of Kindle Coloured. Invest in R&D for this.
8. There are no Page Turn Buttons or a Home button on Kindle. Including them will make it more convenient.
9. For most of the ebooks there are no page numbers in kindle, only location number in thousands which seem to be arbitrary. This is a little bit discomfortable.
10. Does not display PDF files properly, the font is very small. If you enlarge the font then you have to scroll left to right to read each line.
11. You will have to convert PDF files to another format using Calibre free software or optimize it for reading on Kindle by using K2pdfopt software.
12. All hard books are not available in kindle format.
13. Hindi font should be available in Kindle sold in India.
14. Kindle should support EPub, Doc, Rtf and HTML formats natively.
15. Kindle should come with Encyclopedia and Thesaurus inbuilt like dictionaries.
16. Kindle should come with preinstalled Games to make the Kindle more interesting.
17. The real cost of manufacturing this device, I guess, should be 1/4th of the price at which it sells.
18. You will not get free Wifi in Wifi only model. But you get Free 3G data in Wifi+3G Model.
19. You will get free 3G but you can't access anything except Wikipedia, Goodreads, Post on Social Network and download ebooks from Kindle store. You can't get 3G connection everywhere.
20. My Kindle device hangs once in 3 months. It either automatically reboots or you reboot it manually. After that it starts working fine. So no issues.
21. You can't listen to Audio Books in Kindle. But on Tablet/Smartphone you can listen.
22. There should be a speaker inbuilt in Kindle. Then you can listen to audio books. Dictionary can come with pronunciation.
23. As kindle is a costly device it should come with 32GB memory rather than 4GB currently. Then whole of Wikipedia can be inbuilt for offline browsing. That will make Kindle much more useful device. Out of 4GB only about 3GB is available to user for storing ebooks. But even in 3GB memory you can store more than Thousand ebooks. In my Kindle I have calculated that on an average an ebook takes 2.7MB space, So in 3GB Kindle space you can store more than Thousand ebooks.
24. In Kindle Unlimited subscription you can download 10 kindle unlimited ebooks at a time. After 10 ebooks, You will have to return old books to get new books. In Kindle Unlimited subscription ebooks will be deleted automatically after your Kindle Unlimited subscription ends. But this limitation is only for Kindle Unlimited Subscription.
25. The limit in Kindle Unlimited Subscription is Total 1000 ebooks or 30 days whichever comes first, if you pay for one month subscription. YES, you can download and store 1000 ebooks on your COMPUTER FOREVER by just paying Rs.150 for one month Kindle Unlimited Subscription. But if you download 1000 ebooks, they will go waste and will keep lying on your computer. You will never feel like reading them. Though you will falsely feel that you have made good use of your money. It is better to download 10 to 20 ebooks. Then you will read most of them and make good use of your money. You don't need Kindle device for Kindle Unlimited Subscription, You can also use Kindle Cloud Reader (Browser), Kindle for PC or Kindle App for Smartphones.
26. Most of the times Amazon transfers ebooks in KFX format which sometimes will not be detected by Kindle when you Manually transferred via USB to Kindle. You can download its AZW3 version from 'Manage Your Content & Devices' page. For Hindi books sometimes only KFX version is available and you cannot download AZW3 version.
27. File names of the many Kindle ebooks are so long that they create problem while backing up in PC or deleting them in Kindle via PC. If you shorten or change the file name of the Kindle ebook using USB and PC, then the ebook doesn't show up in the kindle at all.
28. You can't use OTG cable to connect to pendrive or a 3G Dongle as the Kindle is not a tablet with a file explorer. But you can use your PC with USB cable to transfer files.
29. It does not have a playstore from where you can install apps as it is not a tablet. But it does have a Kindle store from where you can download free and paid ebooks.
30. Kindle is a bit unstable device. Sometimes it doesn't show a book you copied by usb cable. Sometimes it doesn't show an ebook if it is moved inside a folder. Sometimes it moves ebooks automatically outside of the folder etc. It keeps on doing peculiar things.
31. The screen technology of Kindle is called E-Ink. It is black & white. It can't play videos. There are two new technologies CLEARink and i.MX 7. Which are cheaper to manufacture and coloured and can play Videos. But how much time Amazon will take to adopt these new technologies can't be said.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best e-reader... ever!

I had owned a Kindle before. It was a Kindle Fire launched in 2012 in the US. At that time Kindle was still not available in India. I used it for couple of years quite extensively and it is still functioning. However over time I got tired of it mainly because of the weight and the UI which sucked.
Then I moved to iPad Air with the Kindle app on it. While iPad is great for other stuff it is not quite so great for long hours of reading. The reason again being its weight.
So I again recently I started thinking buying the new Paperwhite since it was light and display is completely different from other mobile devices and tablets. But I wanted to be absolutely sure before investing another 11 grand on another device. So I spent some time researching and waiting for the right time to get the best deal. The homework and the wait was worth it!

Here are things that I personally think goes well for the new Paperwhite. I keep updating this review based on my usage and as I explore new features and Tips & Tricks.

1. Technology is completely different from other device like mobile phones or tablets. it doesn't hurt your eyes so much like the other devices do. When you are reading in a lighted environment, it almost looks like a page from a real book.
2. Absolutely no strain on eyes and hardly any glare. Even in the dark it is much lighter on your eyes than other displays, because the backlight is a cool white light.
3. Screen brightness doesn’t auto adjust but you have to manually adjust it. At this price range not having auto adjustment is understandable.
4. 24 levels of brightness settings. Personally I find 10 is enough even in the dark.
5. Portrait/landscape orientation can be done manually. It doesn’t auto rotate. Again, understandable at this price range.

1. One of key things I like about it. It weighs just a little over 200 grams. You can hold it with one hand and read like that for long hours without straining your hand.
2. I can easily turn the pages with one finger of the same hand, without using the other hand. That's the ease of navigation!

1. Navigation is not smooth like a mobile phone's or tablet's touch screen. For instance, when turning a page, the screen refresh is kind of lagging. But then this Kindle is just made for reading, not other purpose like web browsing etc. So it's perfectly fine for reading.
2. In fact I like the fact that it does not have others things like apps and stuffs in it. So there won't be anything like a Facebook notification or an email popping in which distracts you from your reading. So nothing comes between you and your book!
3. Also love the handy dictionary - you just highlight the word and the dictionary just pops up with the meaning (this feature was there in the Kindle Fire as well). It actually improves your vocabulary.
4. Also has Wikipedia and Translator besides dictionary. See my photos. Wikipedia is good while translator is not much effective.
5. Quickly scan through pages without losing track of the current page.
6. X-ray: new future available in some ebooks. Scan through the main events/points of the book to remind you of what happened in it.
7. Footnotes: directly accessible form the relevant section of the page. Once you read the note, close it and you are back the page you were.

Battery Life:
1. Battery life is phenomenal! I read at least 1-2 hours during weekdays and 3-4 hours daily during weekends. I don't have to bother charging for couple of weeks. Love that!
2. Charging is through USB cable. Wall charger has to be bought separately.

Look & Feel:
1. Design is very simple, elegant and minimalistic.
2. I got the White one and its looks great!
3. There is just one single power button. No other buttons and hence no hassle!

Social media integration:
1. Goodreads is integrated with the Kindle. Goodreads is a social network of readers - you can give/get recommendations, check book reviews/ratings, connect with fellow readers and authors, see what others are reading etc. You can sync Goodreads account with Kindle, update your book shelf, your reading progress etc.
2. You can highlight important sentences/quotes and share with others.
3. You can browse and buy books from Kindle store which gets delivered to your Kindle within minutes.

There are 2 versions - wifi and wifi+3G
1. wifi version, as the name suggests, has wifi connectivity. So if you are connected to a wifi network, you can purchase books from amazon store, get it delivered to your kindle and read it on your Kindle within minutes.
2. 3G version has wifi and 3G connectivity. 3G service is provided by Amazon and its lifetime free. You can get books like I explained above over 3G even if you are not connected to wifi. HOWEVER, I have seen feedback from real users that 3G coverage is not so good in some places in India.
So, considering practicality and wifi availability these days, I feel wifi is just good enough and don’t feel it's worth investing another 3000/- just for 3G.

Amazon's wow factor:
1. I bought this during the Great Indian Sale so got a great deal of 3K discount due to Prime membership.
2. Plus the cashback offer over and above that. That's the icing on the cake with the cherry on the top!
What could've been better:
One thing which I don’t like is that the wall charger is not included in the package. You have to buy it separately if you want one. However, a bundled charger would have been just sweet!

Verdict: if you are regular reader and you are just looking for a e-reader without the other distracting stuff of a regular tablet, then this is the device to go for. So, no second thoughts about it!
