There used to be a very pronounced difference between the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Voyage.
The Gen 2 Kindle Paperwhite had a screen resolution of 212ppi vs Voyage’s 300ppi.
The main factor determining which to buy was clear; while Paperwhite is a more than adequate model, get the Voyage if you want the best and a higher resolution screen.
However, with the release of the Gen 3 Paperwhite that also boasts a resolution of 300ppi, what then is the main reason to get the Voyage over it?
Difference between Paperwhite and Voyage:
While the Paperwhite now has the same screen resolution, the Voyage is a more premium device without par.
The main differences between the Paperwhite and Voyage is that essentially, the voyage is a higher end model with better screen and overall finish.
