The e-paper background looks whiter and fresher, too - not so ruddy and easier on the eye. With overhead office lights shining on the 212ppi screen, the new Paperwhite is slightly easier to read even with reflections bouncing off it. Take that, regular ink.</p> <p>The Kindle&rsquo;s screen has also been treated to a next-gen built-in light &ndash; it&rsquo;s just as bright as before but seems to be a bit whiter, making the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/amazon-kindle-paperwhite/review">old Paperwhite </a>look a little blue in tone when viewed side-by-side. Which you prefer will be a matter of preference but we&rsquo;d recommend getting some eyes-on time with both if you&rsquo;ll use the light a lot.</p> <p>Amazon says it guides light towards the surface of the display to reduce eye strain and we didn&rsquo;t encounter any peeper pain at all during our bedtime Malcolm Gladwell binges. It&rsquo;s still great at avoiding registering accidental taps, with a more responsive touch grid, although being a touchscreen means snacks are best saved for before or after a Kindle session. Sigh.</p> <p><strong>To show off the Paperwhite&rsquo;s screen</strong>:<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Packing-Mars-Mary-Roach-ebook/dp/B00CBWD78C/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1387312796&amp;sr=1-1-catcorr"> Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in Space</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="New Paperwhite (left) versus old Paperwhite (right) " alt="New Paperwhite (left) versus old Paperwhite (right) " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/amazon-kindle-paperwhite-2013-review-screen-contrast.png?1387665053" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="The built-in light is whiter than last year&#039;s model " alt="The built-in light is whiter than last year&#039;s model " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/amazon-kindle-paperwhite-2013-review-backlight-1.png?1387665053" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Feature flippin&#039; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Aside from screen tweaks, Amazon&rsquo;s been poking its nose through every single Kindle feature with plenty of new e-reading tricks to try. Page Flip is our favourite - accessed by tapping the top of the screen then the arrow above the title, a preview hovers above the page you&rsquo;re reading with a slider bar below it to skip pages or scan chapters. It&rsquo;s much more like flipping back and forth in a physical book and we don&rsquo;t know how we previously Kindled without it.</p> <p>Vocabulary Builder is a nice touch, too, automatically compiling any words looked up via the dictionary tool with a line or two of where they were when you read them. There&rsquo;s even a mastered button to move words into a different list. One for word-learning fiends.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s not just the dictionary we&rsquo;ve been diving into, either, the improved Smart Lookup tweaks the menus showing Wikipedia, X-Ray, Search, etc, making it faster and easier to use these tools to get more information as you read. X-Ray is still very handy for students or non-fiction lovers &ndash; it&rsquo;s not available for all titles but when it is, it&rsquo;s an awesome search tool and works well at picking up references to people, places and companies and then displaying them on a timeline of the &lsquo;bones&rsquo; of the book.</p> <p><strong>To Page Flip through</strong>: <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dogfight-Apple-Google-Started-Revolution-ebook/dp/B00CW6F06O/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1387312850&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=Dogfight%3A+How+Apple+and+Google+went+to+war+and+started+a+revolution">Dogfight: How Apple and Google went to war and started a revolution </a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The PageFlip preview - how did we ever Kindle without it?" alt="The PageFlip preview - how did we ever Kindle without it?" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/amazon-kindle-paperwhite-2013-review-pageflip.png?1387665053" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Very very good, £1 ebook/ very, very nice £1 ebook " alt="Very very good, £1 ebook/ very, very nice £1 ebook " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/amazon-kindle-paperwhite-2013-review-cheap-ebooks.png?1387665053" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2013) Tech Specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Display: 6in 1024x768 e-paper screen (212ppi)</p> <p>Storage: 2GB (1.25GB available)</p> <p>Formats: Kindle Format 8 (AZW3), Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively; HTML, DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP through conversion</p> <p>Connectivity: 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, microUSB 2.0, 3G (optional)</p> <p>Battery: Eight weeks (claimed)</p> <p>Dimensions: 169mm x 117mm x 9.1mm</p> <p>Weight: 206g</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Page Turn, Pronto </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Don&rsquo;t forget this is an annual refresh, so while page turning is slightly quicker on the new Paperwhite there&rsquo;s nothing much to make owners of <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/amazon-kindle-paperwhite/review">last year&rsquo;s model</a> too green. It&rsquo;s still not as slick as using a smartphone or tablet in terms of navigating around the basic OS, but it&rsquo;s fast enough to keep up with your reading.</p> <p>Everything&rsquo;s a millisecond or so faster on the new model &ndash; tapping to go home, opening books, bringing up the menu when tapping the top third of the screen while reading - but it&rsquo;s not instant and features such as PageFlip still seem to take their time. Books download pretty much instantly, as ever, and happily it looks as though there are fewer &lsquo;flickers&rsquo; of the e-paper screen than the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/amazon-kindle-paperwhite/review">old Paperwhite</a>. Bravo, Amazon.</p> <p>We haven&rsquo;t had a single crash (which <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/amazon-kindle-paperwhite/review">the early version of the 2012 model </a>could be prone to) and a touch of ghosting (where words from the previous page remain on screen) while sometimes present, isn&rsquo;t a deal-breaker. And it&rsquo;s worth mentioning that while other e-readers offer bigger storage, the Kindle&rsquo;s 1.25GB available for e-books is plenty, holding over 1,000 books.</p> <p><strong>To celebrate the Paperwhite&rsquo;s great performance</strong>: <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Life-At-The-Limit-Triumph-ebook/dp/B00BQF6RBO/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1387312942&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=Life+at+the+Limit%3A+Triumph+and+Tragedy+in+Formula+One">Life at the Limit: Triumph and Tragedy in Formula One</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Race against time (left in chapter) " alt="Race against time (left in chapter) " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/amazon-kindle-paperwhite-2013-review-reading-features-1.png?1387665053" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Kindle Store </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Kindle Store was one of the main reasons everyone fell in love with Kindles in the first place, and it continues to lunge confidently ahead.

The home screen (with a small banner ad) is looking increasingly cramped and cluttered, while the experimental web browser is positively creaky, despite a simplified ‘article mode’. Unlike some previous Kindles, there’s no support for audiobooks or MP3 playback.</p> <p>More worryingly, our unit suffered several crashes and errors, and the screen occasionally suffered from annoying ghosting, where previous words remained slightly visible after refreshes.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Amazon Kindle Paperwhite" alt="Amazon Kindle Paperwhite" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/amazon-kindle-paperwhite-03_3_0.jpg?1370359508" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Amazon Kindle Paperwhite" alt="Amazon Kindle Paperwhite" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/amazon-kindle-paperwhite-01_2_0.jpg?1370359508" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> build and battery </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Paperwhite is essentially the same size and shape as previous Kindle ereaders, although it has inherited the warm, grippy rubberised rear from its <a href="/review/amazon-kindle-fire-hd">Fire</a> big brother. The bright white Kindle logo on the front is begging for a strip of black masking tape.</p> <p>Otherwise, it feels light and solid, with the E Ink touchscreen having a slightly rough matt texture that’s quite different from LCD displays.

Its screen is slightly sharper and the illumination more even than the Barnes and Noble device, but Amazon’s flagship ereader is also a few grams heavier.</p> <p>The screensaver and home screen ads are noticeable rather than annoying, and the same goes for the Paperwhite’s lack of a USB wall charger, as most people will have one knocking around.

Reading features are easy to access and intelligently presented, with smart online options.</p> <p>But other aspects of the Paperwhite disappoint, including some annoying bugs and an awkward home screen. For the price, it’s great, but this won’t be the last ebook reader you ever buy.</p> <p><strong>UPDATED VERDICT</strong>: Lots of our niggles with the Kindle Paperwhite have been ironed out now we have our hands on a final unit in the UK which means a bump up from four stars to five. Unlike its rival, the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight, the Paperwhite's light is always on and we prefer its natural green-blue glow. The crashes have all but disappeared and though the ghosting remains, it shouldn't distract for too long especially if you're in the middle of a good book.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div
