New Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Unboxing and Comparison with 1st Gen

I have the British (UK) advert supported Kindle from Amazon, link here

Those who know me know that I love to read, so it should come as no surprise to learn that I have had various iterations of the Kindle over the past 6 or 7 years.

I have owned the original Kindle Paperwhite since it was launched, but recently felt as though it was slowing down, especially with things like loading the store and posting to goodreads etc…

As a result I ordered a new Paperwhite, and as you can see in the video it is faster in almost every way. More importantly than pure speed is the reading experience and it is clear from a side-by-side comparison that the new Kindle is both brighter and clearer. The text appears sharper, and the overall experience is a step up. Well worth investing in if you’re in the market for an e-reader upgrade. 5/5.
