Should you buy the Kindle Paperwhite (Jun 15) or Voyage (Updated)

  Damon SG E-reader Shop   Jan 08, 2016   Uncategorized   2 Comments

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.

 Without overloading you with all the technical details, this is a summary of the main differences:
  • Built-in Lighting
    Paperwhite – Manual adjusting
    Voyage – Automatic (Adaptive lighting) Manual adjusting
  • Body
    Paperwhite – Plastic body with soft touch back

    Voyage – Magnesium body with Hardened Glass Screen
    Additionally, the Voyage’s glass screen sits flushed the body while the Paperwhite’s screen is recessed into the body.
  • Page Turn
    Paperwhite – Touchscreen
    Voyage – PagePress + Touchscreen
Ultimately, our take is that the Paperwhite is more than good enough for most reading needs. However, if you want the absolute best and have the budget, then the Voyage would be the model to go.

    Hey, really appreciate the effort made to give an honest opinion on the two products. It is obvious to me that this shop is ethical with its review helping readers to make good choices while not overspending. I will definitely recommend your online shop to my friends.

    Hi everyone. The Kindle is definitely a very good e-reader and I should say there is nothing out there that lets you read like reading text on paper. My son uses the Kindle Paperwhite, 300dpi and I recently got the Kindle Voyage. I am not too excited about the page press feature and on normal use, the difference the additional 2 LEDs has on the built-in lighting is not that noticeable. If you decide on the Kindle Paperwhite, you will not loose out much.
