Thin and light for one-handed reading

New—The all-new Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.

No glare in bright sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.

No eye strain, reads like real paper

Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.

Battery lasts weeks, not hours

Kindle doesn’t need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.

Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep

Recent studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep.

Thousands of books, no distractions

Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.

By Phil (not) in Mågnoliá TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 8, 2016
Configuration: With Special OffersColor: Black Verified Purchase
Length: 3:28 Mins
Just two months following Amazon's introduction of their premium-priced (and somewhat controversial) Kindle Oasis E-reader with Leather Charging Cover, Amazon has brought out their 8th-Generation Kindle. Imagine, the Kindle was first released on November 19, 2007, for $399!

This is the least expensive model in the current Kindle lineup and bookends the Oasis at about a third of the price, with the Paperwhite and Voyage in between. In the eight and a half years that have now gone by since the first Kindle, Amazon continues to make incremental improvements, and this new refinement of the Kindle has a couple of significant differences that make the product and experience better, for some users at least.

I ordered this model because I wanted to see how much different this Kindle is from my other models (I have one each of the others mentioned above). Does it really make that much difference to have a Kindle without the built-in lighting?

IN BRIEF - WHY PURCHASE THIS PARTICULAR KINDLE MODEL?

-- It's the least expensive Kindle (and the price is unchanged from the 7th generation version).
-- As an e-reader it does everything that the more expensive Kindle models do - it runs the same e-reader software, it has the same processor as the more expensive Paperwhite and Voyage models, and it synchronizes with your Kindle book library and downloads books via wi-fi.
-- It has exactly as much storage for books as any other current Kindle model, 4 GB, enough for 'thousands' of books.

If you read the "KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING" review for the Kindle prior to this one then you know where I am going. Already this new Kindle is riddled with one star reviews from people that seem to not have read the product description. Here goes:

*THIS KINDLE DOES NOT HAVE A LIGHT!
*THIS KINDLE DOES NOT HAVE GAMING CAPABILITY!
*THIS KINDLE DOES NOT HAVE PAGE TURNING BUTTONS!

Like a regular book you just might HAVE A HARD TIME READING THIS KINDLE IN BED AT NIGHT WITH LOW LIGHTING!

What you will get though is an awesome entry level Kindle with software almost identical to the higher end models. The print looks flawless outside, by a window, or under a lamp, in other words, just like a real book.

I am writing this from the perspective of being a long-time experienced Kindle user vs. someone brand new. From an overall perspective, considering the pricing of the Kindle with Special Offers at $79 vs. higher amounts for the different flavors of Kindle available today, this one is a bargain. If you have wanted to get your kids a Kindle to encourage reading as well as sharing of books but hesitated because $119 to $289+ is a lot of money to risk with a child, maybe at $79 this is your price point.

From a size standpoint, the reading screen is the exact same size as the other e-Ink Kindles. It is slightly thinner and lighter than the Kindle Paperwhite, but to me it's not really a noticeable difference when you're holding it in a protective cover.

There are no page buttons - no buttons at all except for the power button - and turning the page is as easy as tapping the side of the screen with your thumb while you're reading, or swiping the screen with your finger.

Reading is easy on this one: in comparison to my previous version of the same model the letters on the screen are much, much darker and easier to read and the display is crisp. Looking at the display side-by-side in the same location of an eBook against the prior version of Kindle mentioned above, the text on this Kindle is much darker and reads a lot better. Compared to a Paperwhite it is not as dark but those results are to be expected since the Paperwhite has 80%4+ more pixels per inch, but at this price point that's not too big of a concern for me as each new version of the Kindle gets better and better with the fonts and screen display and this one is pretty darn good - you want to be able to read what you're supposed to, right?

I got this as a gift and very impressed with the Kindle on the lower end of the spectrum. I have a Kindle Paperwhile, and though I cannot directly compare with it due to their different price points and specs, I will say of you have few more $$ go for the paperwhite. The 300 ppi on the paperwhite does make a difference compared to the 167 ppi on the New Kindle. If you are on a budget this is absolutely perfect. My only request to Amazon is to build a 9” or 13” Kindle. It has definitely a market! I have ordered the 13” Android ereader from Goodereader.

This Kindle has no built in lights and is lightweight. Only Kindle lighter than this is the Oasis! I login to my Amazon account and voila! All my books are present. Feels very thin. If you are travelling and on metro trains most of the time, this is a no brainer. Kindles have come a long way in past several years! They feel light and are excellent for reading purpose. I will any day prefer this over any tablets. No eye strain, I am reading a book and it feels very pleasant with this device. I found one hand reading a breeze! The software has improved leaps and bounds in past few years and I am totally impressed with Amazon’s execution. I still am not sure why Amazon does not include a one dollar wall charger. Someone’s going to fry connecting to a wrong charger.

In general the Kindle is a great first foray for ereaders. I have been reading on ereaders for past 6 years and this Kindle has come a long way! If you have last year’s model, do you need to upgrade. Well No. I have a several year old generation. Do I need to upgrade to this. Well Yeah! Reading becomes so much more pleasurable. I have a policy that I do not use a tablet an hour before sleep, but I exempt Kindle as they have no glaring light coming out of it.

If you have any questions please ask and I will answer in the comments section within 24 hours.
