However, I've found a solution to this sub-two year life problem. My next Kindle Paperwhite will be bought from John Lewis. The price is the same, but you get a 2 year warranty on the device, and for just an additional £10, you can extend that to include accidental damage for an additional two years.
Given that, you'd have to be a mug to buy a Kindle from Amazon.
I fully charged my kindle when I first got it, (2nd October) and around the beginning of December I gave it an hour or so, so not a full charge because that takes several hours. Only last week did I have to give it its first full charge because I noticed it was running low. I keep my brightness on either 8 or 10 depending on the lighting. The battery life is phenomenal! I couldn't fault it, only thing that could be considered a downside is that it takes a while to fully charge, but that's not a real issue.
The adverts... a lot of reviews make out that it's annoying and in your face. When you turn off the screen, yes you do get a single advert (it's not changing from one thing to another) BUT they are advertisements for other books 95% of the time which I find quite useful because you know... I'm reading a book, and I'll probably read another when I'm done, and they're related to the same genre of books I've previously read. The other 5% of adverts are for kindle accessories... chargers, cases. Again, related &potentially useful. You only see these ads in the short space of time in between switching your screen off and putting it in your bag. It isn't going to kill you and isn't a real bother.Read more ›

I have made an in-depth video review of this new Paperwhite. It shows not just the differences between the old & new Paperwhite but also many of the features of Kindles in general - features which will show you why reading a book on a Kindle can be better than reading a physical book (but if you prefer a real book in your hands, I respect that).
If you are in a hurry and you are loooking for one thing in particular, you may wish to use the time index below to jump straight to it.
The video covers, in this order:
1. (Starting at a time display of 0:34 into the video): The frontlight, and dimming/increasing its strength.
2. (At 0:59): How to toggle between displaying "Location", "Page number", "Time left in chapter" and "Time left in book".

I wanted silent page turning so that I don't disturb others while I'm reading, and some sort of lighting so that I can read in the dark. The Paperwhite gives me these. So overall it does what I want and was much cheaper than the others.
I hope you enjoyed reading this review, and if you found it helpful I'd very much appreciate it if you would click the "helpful" button below.
