Finally, No Need For A Book Light!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kindle Paperwhite, 6" High Resolution Display with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi [Previous Generation] (Electronics)
Here is a quick video I shot of the new Kindle Paperwhite in action. I attempted to show what the glow screen looks like and address the comments about the LED lights at the bottom. In my opinion, it's no big deal, but hopefully you can get an idea of what some folks have mentioned. The screen is super clear and SUPER bright! I also like the feel of the new screen, it seems to have a somewhat rough texture and truly almost feels like paper.

Can the light be turned off completely? Or is it always on even at the lowest setting?

Actually, the light stays on, even at the lowest setting, although very dim. However, it does turn off completely when you stop using the Paperwhite and it goes into standby mode.

The video was great!
The device is supposed to have higher contrast than previous Kindles. Have you noticed a difference?

Very useful review! But, in the end, is the new screen actually better than the previous one, apart from the light?

Absolutely Doughboy! I also have a Kindle Touch and the difference is striking, especially with the white background.
