Technically the two new 8- and 10-inch tablets from Amazon are almost identical. They each have a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and thus offer a rather low pixel density. Inside each of the MediaTek MT8135 tinkers quad core SoC, which is built according to the big.LITTLE principle. That is, the chip has two power-saving ARM Cortex-A7 cores with 1.2 GHz and two powerful ARM Cortex-A15 cores with 1.5 GHz clock rate.

Kindle Paperwhite –

Curious? Subsequently, the Kindle Paperwhite is again described comprehensively. In the course you will find product images and photos, a video and the data sheet.

Table of Contents [Open] Table of Contents [close]

The new high-resolution display of the Kindle Paperwhite closes on to the Kindle Voyage screen. Both models offer a pixel density of 300 ppi. In practice, it does so in the form of a particularly sharp text display noticeable – as sharp as in a printed book. As screen technology is like the last model E-Ink Carta used. It is currently the most advanced e-paper technology with excellent contrast values. Further details on the E-Ink Carta technology are here nachlesbar.

The following two Mikropskopaufnahmen the same text cutout on Kindle Paperwhite 3 (left) and the PocketBook Touch Lux 3 (right) were recorded, both clear differences in the Text Sharpness show and also highlight the better contrast of the Amazon device. The bottom line is that the writing on the Paperwhite is sharper and darker. Also, the screen background is brighter, so that readability is ultimately noticeably better and more enjoyable

The slider in the comparative recording can be moved with the mouse button pressed down.
 Original Image PocketBook Touch Lux 3 (212 ppi)

Modified Image Kindle Paperwhite 3 (300 ppi)

name factor includes a built-in back lighting to functionality. As with the two predecessors, this enables readability in darkness. But not only at night but also during the day makes itself paid the lighting, because the screen background is brighter and the contrast ratio continues to rise. In other words. You can also read the text with activated lighting during the day even better – like a paper page

The built-in lighting is located high on the same very high level of the Kindle Paperwhite 2. The illumination is very evenly and improves the contrast visibly. The uniformity of light distribution allows the many competitors in a direct comparison look old. There are only minimal irregularities which fail, however, significantly lower than other ebook reader manufacturers. Even the more expensive Kindle Voyage leaves the White Paper due to the more homogeneous illumination ultimately behind. Bottom line, we can say without hesitation that the Kindle Paperwhite 3 has an excellent readability.

Also on the day, the lighting is a real added value

That’s so far that the use of built-in lighting, even in daylight pays out, the higher maximum brightness is a practical added value here. The color temperature of the built-in LEDs (continued 4 pieces) is neutral-yellowish, so rather attributable to the warm spectrum. Thus, the new model deserves to be called “White Paper” with ease.

The dimensions have not changed compared to its predecessor and remain at 169 x 117 x 9.1 mm. Small optical adjustments and changes to the material, there was indeed that affect the bottom line, but not (positive or negative) on the good handling. The relatively wide margins ensure that you can get hold of the Kindle Paperwhite very good in the hand. On page keys you have to – as with most other current eBook readers – unfortunately without. It is operated exclusively via the touch screen.

Many software functions, thoughtful and useful

Amazon is the only manufacturer with a vocabulary trainer – and the work still to quite well

But not only the hardware has been rectified, and the software has been upgraded. Each new generation of the Kindle Paperwhite has always been distinguished by sophisticated software functions and easy operation. Notiznehmung, dictionaries, virtual keyboard, search, eBook purchase more. were implemented perfectly or almost perfectly. Although other manufacturers in some points also on par (and in some cases better), but in sum Amazon delivers the best overall package.

A useful bonus of the Kindle Paperwhite Kindle FreeTime. This is a feature that has been developed especially for parents in order to make the device available to children can, without having to give up the entire device functions (Internet Browser, Kindle Store, other books) access. It is a completely walled off UI. In addition, you can define reading goals and track reading progress with the automatically recorded statistics.

The vocabulary trainer is also a useful innovation. If you look up a word in an eBook, it will automatically be copied on request in the vocabulary list. There you can view all the words, and learn to test. Especially when one reads books in a straight to Erlen Denden language vocabulary function can be enormously helpful. Prerequisite is a fitting translation dictionary that you have to buy if necessary.

With the latest software version can be recently two Amazon customer accounts (of a household) link together. This multiple devices have access to the same library without having to acquire the title twice, or the files back by hand and takes herkopieren.

Ease of use with built-in eBook Store

Access to the device functions fall generally from so simple that it is easy to understand without any special affinity for technology. The fast processor makes operation (especially when compared to so many competitors) overall very fast and pleasant.

The only real downside of the device relates to binding to Amazon. Although books can also be basically copied from external sources on the Kindle Paperwhite, however, everything is designed so that you can buy books on Amazon. So the widespread ePub format is not supported, instead, work mobility, AZW-, and KFX files (which you only get in very few other shops). Because of the book prices but this is at least not a disadvantage priced and thanks to Amazon’s quite attractive self-publishing platform (both for authors and for readers) visit again many titles exclusive and premium location in the Kindle ebook store. Tip: We offer 12 newly remanufactured classics as free eBooks in the Kindle format

With Kindle Unlimited’s a flat rate, with which you can read for around 10 euros a month as many eBooks. as you want. The range consists largely of selbstpublizierten titles. An advantage over other offerings is the possibility of using the dedicated reader. Other comparable flat rates are usually available only with an app on smartphones or tablets. Note: The eLibrary is not available

WiFi or 3G model? Which is the right choice?

Books can be purchased directly at the device. There are two different ways: When WiFi model you need to be locally connected to a wireless network to access the Internet may, at 3G model you can however use the Internet connection of a mobile phone provider – as with the phone as well. Here, however, the Kindle Paperwhite 3G does not require a SIM card, because the entire mobile functionality is permanently integrated in the device and the user costs also nothing extra. The purchase of eBook Readers thus covers the entire data usage. Here, the Internet browser to access external (off Wikipedia and Bing translation function) is locked, so you still relies on a wireless connection to free internet access. An additional advantage of the 3G model is the possible use abroad. The Kindle Paperwhite 3G is thus particularly interesting for people who travel a lot or do not have Internet at home or Wi-Fi. However, one must grab it a little deeper into their pockets, because the purchase price is higher by 60 euro. The question of whether better accesses to Paperwhite 3G or regular WiFi model will be discussed in more detail in this article.

Shopping in the Kindle Store directly on the device

The eBook purchase works as easily as the rest of the operation. If you acquire the device from Amazon, it is automatically linked to the account (if you do not explicitly ordered as a gift). This eliminates the hassle of entering the login information for the first commissioning, so you can start right away. Purchased eBooks are settled directly with the stored payment methods. If you buy the eBook Reader in Media Markt, Saturn, among other things, then you have to enter the customer data manually. Will you not, not all functions are available (eg collections). A separate DRM-account is not necessary because of copy protection – in contrast to almost all other vendors – is not controlled by Adobe, but Amazon itself

Conclusion: Bottom line. could the Kindle Paperwhite 3 in our test very good score 1,3 earn and offers an excellent price-performance ratio. No 6 incher provides a better overall package. From our side there’s thus again a strong buy recommendation, since the acquisition of this Amazon eBook Reader you can hardly do anything wrong. At the current price of around 119 euros, the device is also certainly very low. However, If you want to not bind to Amazon, then, of course, is also worth a look to other devices, such as PocketBook Touch Lux 3, Kobo Glo HD, Kobo Aura H2O or Tolino Vision <"datasheet-buttons" ul class =>. 2
