Is the Kindle Paperwhite the best Kindle?

In our view, it's the best Kindle where features and affordability combine. The Kindle Paperwhite is a premium Kindle, that sits above the entry, standard Kindle, and below the Kindle Oasis. It strikes a beautiful balance between quality and affordability, being fast, waterproof, with a sharp glare-free display, as well as thinner borders, adjustable light, and a great battery life. You're very likely to find the best Kindle Paperwhite prices all through the year, as Amazon is keen to have market dominance in this tablet field. 

You can also get the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition, which adds wireless charging and auto-adjusting display – nice, but hardly an essential in our view. 

What features does the Kindle Paperwhite have?

The Kindle Paperwhite is backlit – making it much easier and more enjoyable to read, whether at night or in a sunny day. The fact that you can adjust that light is another bonus. It's also waterproof, so you can relax reading your favourite book in the bath with no stress of damaging it. And with a battery life that'll last up to 10 weeks (depending on usage), we easily call this our favourite Kindle for features and price point.
