This is the Goldilocks in the Amazon lineup and our current CNET Editors Pick in the category. Here are a few things we love about the Kindle Paperwhite:

  • It is 10% thinner and lighter than the previous version.
  • It has a “flush front” design with a back made of a softer, more grippy material rather than hard plastic.
  • It’s a fully waterproof Kindle, like the higher-end Kindle Oasis, and it has a plastic screen that Amazon says is resistant to shatters and scratches.
  • It has built-in Bluetooth, so you can download audiobooks from Amazon Audible and listen to them with wireless headphones.

The Paperwhite was last updated in November 2018. Aside from USB-C charging and perhaps an updated display, it’s unclear what else Amazon could add to the Paperwhite in 2021, so this is a pretty prepared gift for the one. future for avid readers.

The Kids Edition on sale here includes the entry-level Kindle with a case (there are four case options to choose from) along with a year of Amazon Kids Plus (FreeTime Unlimited), which typically costs $ 3 a month and gives you access to hundreds of children’s books. Amazon Kids Plus includes the complete Harry Potter series and the first book of other popular series such as Artemis Fowl.

The latest version of Amazon’s entry-level e-book reader, which Amazon simply calls the Kindle, now has a self-illuminated display and an improved design. We prefer Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite, which has a higher resolution display (text and images appear slightly sharper), is waterproof, and has a slightly better lighting scheme. But if you don’t want to spend a lot on an e-reader, the standard Kindle is a good option, especially when it goes on sale. Last year it dropped to just $ 60 during the holidays.

Most people will be happy with the more affordable Paperwhite for their Kindle e-book reading and basic Kindle needs, but if you want the best of the best with an anti-glare screen, and don’t mind paying a premium for it, the Oasis is arguably the latest when it comes to a premium e-book device. Last year it dropped to just $ 175 over the holidays.

Amazon’s top-of-the-line E Ink e-reader was updated in 2019, but this Kindle e-reader device is basically identical to the previous Kindle Oasis, except for one key difference: it has a new adjustable color built-in light that allows you to customize the tone of color from cool to warm, depending on whether you are reading during the day or at night. You can also set the screen warmth to automatically update with sunrise and sunset, unlike Night Shift mode on Apple devices.
