All three are very different. Each one kept me glued from start to finish. I can't think that any one is better or worse. All equally good.

5.0 out of 5 stars MISTERWINT'S Kindle Voyage Wifi-3G, 23 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've upgraded from the PaperWhite 3G which was two years old and working perfectly well so I have to question whether or not this is a valid upgrade for me at this time. I think it's a YES and a NO. The moment I held this new Kindle I thought I'd made a mistake. It felt too light when comparing to the PaperWhite but after a couple of hours of holding in use I find the lighter weight to be quite acceptable.

The new page turn buttons are fine in use in the right had if you're right handed but if in the left hand and you're a right handed person then I personally couldn't find any way at all to use the left side. It made me wonder if even a left handed person could use the left side as easily as I can use the right side coz no matter how I held it in my left hand I couldn't use it. All this of course is while I'm operating with one hand. As well as the page turn buttons there's also the screen swipe for page turning.

300ppi I'm sure looks good to those with great eyes but even with my glasses on I can't notice the improvement in text but if you use your menu in Cover Mode then the cover art does look much sharper. The new light is amazing. I have to view at various angles to see where the light source comes from. Light is even across the screen with no shadowy blobs that the first generation PaperWhite suffered from. The light now comes with an ambient light sensor and so with this running there's no need for manually changing the brightness as it's all done for you. You can of course switch this off and set your own level of brightness as you wish.

The screen is much more responsive compared to previous models I've used and so much more pleasant when dragging those cursors over the text you wish to highlight. The screen now sits flush with the surface of the whole thing. Gone is the raised bezel. Everything is now flat and continuous which makes for easier cleaning coz there's no longer edges and corners for bits and gunk to collect in. Aside from the practical benefits, having the screen fit flush with the casing makes the whole thing look very sexy-gadget.

The power button now sits on the back of the case, the upper right side. I never liked the button on the bottom. After a week of use I'm now used to it being on the back. The battery doesn't last as long. I used to get a week out of my PaperWhite using it with 3G but I get around 5 days on the Voyage with 3G switched on, which still isn't bad. I should think I'd get 7 days if I switched off 3G. I read nearly 4 hours a day, hence me not getting 5-8 weeks from this and previous Kindles. The 3G reception on the Voyage seems to be stronger than on the Kindle PaperWhite.

The software is more acceptable now the screen fits flush and the faster response times. I won't go into everything the software has because this is a review rather than an instruction booklet but I will tell you that the UK version doesn't yet have Goodreads integration. USA, Canada and Australia have it on their Kindle software but not us poor Brits. This annoys me greatly and I hope amazon read this and give us it sooner than very.

4GB of storage is nice and I intend to fill it.

So the question is, is it worth an upgrade from the Kindle PaperWhite? Assuming your PaperWhite is fully functioning then I have to answer, NO. If you want a new shiny gadget that gives you a more polished user experience then the answer is, YES.

I would like to say a big thank you to PAYE TROLLS who without your contributions, this purchase would not have been possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've moved from an Oral B to this mainly out of interest and the very good price. I think I made the right choice, 22 Mar. 2015

it feels very light and cheap and sounds cheap too and I wonder if it will make it past the two year guarantee. That aside, my teeth have never felt as clean as they do using this. I've moved from an Oral B to this mainly out of interest and the very good price. I think I made the right choice.

Lovely woody aroma. Smells quite harsh to begin with but within 5 minutes has settled and smells delightful.

My cat loves these. Recently they've vanished from supermarkets, not sure why so in case they've stopped making them I bought seven tubs for him to be getting on with.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story about 100+ years of life, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the story about Allan who is 100 years old who decides that he wants his life back and so jumps out of a window. This leads him on an amazing current day adventure where he meets new people who go along with him for the ride.

At the same time you get to go back in time and read about the 100 year life of the 100 year old man and the effect he had one world events.

The humour and style of story telling is rather silly and childish but I loved that about it.

A very good story which is told in a rather unique way!

A good read! I was pleased to see they couldn't cope without Sarah Lund and had to bring her back. A genius who scares the crap out of her colleagues.

Strong characters and they're on a bit of a chase to find out who did what which sends Sarah out to Iraq because there's a lot of secrets in this book and no one wants to give them up.
