The perfect kindle,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Paperwhite (5th generation), 6" High Resolution Display (212 ppi) with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi (Electronics)
I was initially put off ordering this as some of the reviews are pritty negative. However, as Amazon has such an easy return policy I gave it a try. A lot of reviews mention a shadow on the screen that disturbs the reading experience, Kindle must have addressed this problem as my screen is fine. Downloading is just as easy as the previous kindle 6", and just as quick.
I had trouble reading my previous kindle as it didn't have a back light. The paper white is much easier to see and the battery (so far) is just as good if not better.
I have only had it a couple of days, but so far so good, very glad I chose to see for myself instead of basing a decision just on the reviews.
Only negative is that it is a fraction too big for my kindle 6" leather case, so will have to invest in another, but that's not a big deal.
