What the Critics Are Saying...


Mashable

Amazon's cheapest Kindle works fine for reading books, but the low resolution e-ink screen might be a turnoff.

- Raymond Wong, Mashable
The Wirecutter

The Kindle Paperwhite’s great display, even lighting, waterproofing, and affordable price, coupled with Amazon’s vast collection of reading material, make it the best device dedicated to reading.

- Nick Guy, The Wirecutter
Cnet

Although the Paperwhite remains the Kindle to get, the cheapest Kindle now includes an integrated light, plus an improved design that makes it more appealing.

- David Carnoy, Cnet
Pocket-lint

The 2019 Amazon Kindle is a fantastic device. Its design may only offer minor updates to its predecessor on the surface, but the addition of a front illuminating light is absolutely a reason to upgrade from the 2016 model. Almost all of the late 2018 Kindle Paperwhite's features are on board this ne...

The 2019 Amazon Kindle is a fantastic device. Its design may only offer minor updates to its predecessor on the surface, but the addition of a front illuminating light is absolutely a reason to upgrade from the 2016 model. Almost all of the late 2018 Kindle Paperwhite's features are on board this new standard Kindle for a cut of the price, making the 2019 model the most obvious choice for many who want to give up a good old fashioned paperback.

After years in the darkness, the more affordable Kindle finally gets an illuminated display. This squeezes the gap between this and the Paperwhite to the point where you’ll really have to want waterproofing or more storage to justify paying the higher price. The lower resolution display won’t please everyone, but for the bulk of your reading you likely won’t ever notice, making the All New Kindle attractive to both upgraders and those new to e-readers alike.

The smallest, lightest, and most affordable

from Wired

If you don't own a Kindle, or you own the basic model, this is a great upgrade to Amazon's entry-level e-reader. Especially if you can get it for $65 by trading in your old model.

Good budget e-reader with one big problem

from Tom's Guide

The Kindle can be a good product, if you're willing to tweak it, but reading under default conditions can be very distracting.
