Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018: An Upgrade Worth Looking Into

To this day, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite remains as one of the most popular e-readers on the market. This device has been upgraded from its 2015 version and now comes with a better screen, an enhanced Bookerly font, and a new typesetting engine that improves the reading experience. Although Amazon hasn’t given the Kindle Paperwhite a new name, it offers new features and upgrades that are worth mentioning.

Improved Display

One of the most notable improvements in the Kindle Paperwhite 2018 is the improved display quality in which the pixel density is now 300ppi (an increase of 212ppi above its predecessor). With that, texts appear sharper, lowering the risk of eye strain when reading for many hours. The same effect applies to reading tiny fonts, as doing so will be more comfortable.

Design-wise, it still looks similar to the Kindle Paperwhite 2013 version, with the sturdy black plastic covering at the back and the Kindle branding on the front. Much like other Kindle devices, the Kindle Paperwhite doesn’t come with a micro SD card slot but it offers enough built-in storage for thousands of e-books. You will also get access to the Cloud Drive as long as the books you have purchased are from Amazon.

Bookerly Font and New Typesetting Engine

While this font isn’t something new in Amazon tablets, it has made its debut on the Kindle Paperwhite line of e-readers this year. The Bookerly font is a combination of Caecilia and Palatino typefaces which is effective for use on digital displays. This will help readers read more comfortably with a lower risk of eyestrain regardless of the type size.

Compared to its predecessors Kindle Paperwhite 2015 and 2013, this year’s iteration has a new typesetting engine that improves font sizes and reduces white space. You won’t see the distracting and awkward spacing between characters which was one of the biggest issues in previous Kindle devices.

Kindle Store

If you feel more comfortable using a desktop when shopping for e-books, then go for it since it’s easy to transfer a book to your Kindle Paperwhite. However, if you will get the 3G version, you can shop for e-books without having to connect to a Wi-Fi network.

Long-lasting Battery Life

While Amazon upgraded the Kindle Paperwhite’s display quality, there’s no noticeable improvement in its battery life. Much like its predecessors, it still can last for a few weeks on a single charge. But if you want to extend its battery life, you can keep your WiFi off and see it can get through six weeks of use.

Is Kindle Oasis better than Paperwhite?

The Kindle Oasis has a bigger and better screen which is the headline attraction but looking beyond that, both of the devices are pretty similar. If you don’t care for the design or page turn buttons of the Oasis, you could save yourself quite a bit of cash by opting for the Paperwhite.

What is the best Kindle to buy 2020?

The best Kindle overall is the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. It’s got a sharp 6-inch, 300-PPI backlit display, 8GB of storage, and can withstand a dunk in the water. Next up on the list in the Amazon Kindle Oasis and Amazon Kindle.

Where to buy Kindle in Hong Kong?

Since Kindle isn’t officially distributed in Hong Kong, it’s best to head to Golden Computer Arcade at Sham Shui Po or Wan Chai Computing Centre at Wan Chai, these shops will sell you Kindle at a fair price. You can also opt to buy online from trusted sites like iPrice Hong Kong or Fortress Hong Kong.
