Kindle Voyage

I got my new Kindle Voyage a few days ago after returning the Paperwhite model. What a difference!

Likes:
Higher resolution display
Screen brightness consistent over entire surface
Improved page turn speed
Incredibly easy to read in direct sunlight
Added controls for page turning
Better location for power switch

Dislikes:
None

Due to the nature of e-ink displays, the page turn will never be as good as an iPad. That being said, the page turn speed is much improved and I don’t hesitate to flip back a page to check something on the previous page.

I also found the font more pleasing than I did on the Paperwhite model. I can only attribute that to the higher resolution. (300 vs 220 dpi)

The new page turn controls on the bezels are handy especially when I hold the unit with my left hand because I don’t have to reach across the screen with my thumb to turn the page.

I would definitely recommend the Voyage, it is worth the higher cost.

P.S.
Don’t believe the battery life claims. I like to keep the brightness control on 20 out of 24 and the battery level is less than half in 4 days.
I will know more after I’ve had the unit for a while. I can live with that because it is such a pleasure to read.
