Brilliantly crisp display
NEW – The high-resolution display (300 ppi) features sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass screen is crafted to eliminate glare and feel like paper to the touch.
Effortless page turns
NEW – PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback.
Light that adjusts with you
NEW – Kindle Voyage can be read in sunlight or total darkness—and it's smart enough to know the difference. With a new adaptive front light, Kindle Voyage senses the light in your environment and changes the setting to the ideal brightness.
Remarkably thin design
Comfortably hold Voyage in one hand for long reading sessions.
PagePress sensors with haptics
PagePress is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver, which reacts to a subtle increase of pressure, triggers a page-turn and provides a haptic response only your thumb can perceive. Because PagePress has no moving parts, the haptics provide you with the most minimal indication that you have pressed the button, to reduce distraction from reading.
Adaptive front light
In order to more closely resemble reading on real paper, we researched and hand-tuned the optimal brightness setting for every lighting condition. The new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your environment, and can even be fine-tuned further to your personal preferences. When reading in the dark, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display’s brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.
An unparalleled 300 ppi display
Kindle Voyage features the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display of any Kindle. The micro-etched glass display diffuses light to eliminate glare and matches the feel of paper.
Sleek yet durable design
Kindle Voyage was designed to come one step closer to a sheet of paper, with a flush-front bezel for a clean, streamlined design. With a magnesium back and a chemically-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

The Kindle Voyager now has buttons on each side again! So I am very pleased. It is still touch screen as well, but clearly I am not the only person who disliked to touchscreen only tech, because the new Kindles all have them!
Another reason I decided to upgrade my Kindle to the Voyager was that I was going through batteries like nothing on earth. My poor Kindle light couldn't keep up with the amount I read.
I did some quick calculations of how much I was spending on them (plus new lights every so often when the LEDs went) and realised that, in the long run, buying the new Kindle Voyager didn't work out so much more expensive.
The Voyager has a built in light, and I was concerned that having a backlight would give me a headache, as phones and laptops can. However, the Voyager is not actually back-lit. The light shines onto the page from the bottom, rather than shining outwards.
Aniyhee plus is that the entire front screen is one piece, which keeps it looking cleaner. The older Kindles have a kind of frame around the screen, almost. And the small gaps and edges are a haven for dust and dirt. The Voyager gets rid of this issue altogether.
The Voyager is just all around the best Kindle to date, and I would highly recommend it to anybody.
I bought the Kindle origami cover to go with it and I strongly recommend it. Works really well. Don't worry that it doesn't look like a traditional cover - functionality is what matters, and functionality is very well thought out in the design.
Don't let any of the negative comments put you off.
I wasn't even aware of the Voyage until I got one recently as a gift. Looking at the price I don't think I would have spent the money on myself but this is the BEST gift I could get! The Voyage is lighter and smaller, battery usage appears to be longer, and I am very happy they changed the location of the power button. I was always struggling in the dark to turn this on, now it's a no-brainer. I didn't think I would make use of the new page turning system but I find that's it's more convenient than touching the screen. You can still tap on the edge of the reading area to turn the pages, but the new press sensors are fantastic. They're not buttons like the Kindle Keyboard, but just areas where you lightly press...and you can set the sensitivity of them.
Comparing the resolution, especially if there are illustrations, the Voyage is so much clearer than the Paperwhite! For reading, the 300 ppi really does make for crisper, sharper text. I love the adaptive light setting, as well...it has gotten brighter or dimmer depending on the lighting conditions and I don't even notice it happening. I only know it has self adjusted because I've been periodically checking. The light is pretty even distribution, on my Paperwhite it was noticeable where the light source was.
One thing I really like is the connection with Goodreads. If you are not signed up with Goodreads this will make no difference to you, but I like to list the book I'm reading, add books I want to read and books I've read to my Goodreads list. I've neglected to do this often enough in the past but with the new Voyage it makes it so simple. It even lists the books I want to read on a list at the bottom of the first book page. This is such a great idea and if you are a Goodreads reader may make this feature alone worth the upgrade!
As a side note, my first Paperwhite was from the States because it was released there first...the only problem with that is that when going to buy a book from the kindle links it was 'not available for purchase' and listed items in dollars. I had to use the browser to go to Amazon.co.uk site and purchase a title. There are no problems now that I have one issued in the UK so that's a big plus for me.
Even if you already have a Paperwhite, but especially if you have one of the earlier Kindles, I would say this is worth getting even though a bit expensive. If you're like me and can't justify the extra expense when you have a perfectly good working Paperwhite, I would add this to my wish list and strongly hint to friends and/or family that this is the best present they could buy me!
