Compared to the preceding version which become priced at Rs. 7,999, the more moderen version has acquired a sizeable bump in price. On paper, the brand new Kindle (2022) comes with lots of beneficial upgrades. This consists of greater storage, a compact and lighter layout, and a miles higher show in comparison to the preceding version. But, must you improve to it in case you already very own a tenth technology version? More importantly, is the marginally pricier Kindle Paperwhite a higher deal at Rs. thirteen,999? Read directly to locate out.

Amazon Kindle (2022) construct best and layout

The Amazon Kindle (2022) appears pretty distinct in comparison to any preceding Kindle version. This is especially right all the way down to the brand new beauty layout and the truth that Amazon’s engineers have controlled to reduce the bezels whilst nonetheless keeping the show’s length at six inches. The new Kindle is now thinner than the sleek-searching Kindle Paperwhite with the aid of using an insignificant 0.1mm and is to be had in Black and Denim finishes. I acquired the latter end for this assessment.

Most of the above modifications are especially due to the fact Amazon switched to, what seems to be, a easier matte-completed polycarbonate frame. Without the non-obligatory cover, it feels a ways from premium, and because it lacks the gentle rubber-like texture, it’s also very slippery. The huge curved arrow (smile) brand, which become first visible at the Kindle Paperwhite, replaces the same old Amazon branding at the again panel.

The big embossed brand has a few sharp edges and the identical may be stated approximately the reduce out for the USB Type-C port, which sooner or later makes it to the bottom Kindle version too. Of course, you may connect the non-obligatory Kindle Fabric Cover that’s to be had in 4 colorations for an extra Rs. 1,799 to make it sense greater premium.

One of the primary benefits of the polycarbonate frame is that it makes the brand new Kindle (2022) plenty lighter at 158g, in comparison to the preceding version. The barely coarse texture of the frame additionally manner that it does now no longer acquire many fingerprints or smudges, which become the case with preceding models, which includes the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition.

When the usage of it unmarried-surpassed for analyzing, the brand new Amazon Kindle (2022) is handiest a chunk taller than the iPhone 14 Pro, making it pretty cushty. However, any form of interplay with the software program together with surfing thru the library, will nonetheless require you to apply each hands. Despite its shrunken length, the bezels at the left and proper facets have enough area and are thick sufficient for containing the Kindle well whilst analyzing, with out triggering any unintended web page turns.

I typically prefered setting my thumb at the thicker backside bezel (with my hand wrapped round the lowest corner). But in view that this Kindle is pretty small, I become cushty maintaining it in a single hand similar to a smartphone. Regardless of its plastic construct best (which additionally lacks an IP rating), the tool felt pretty strong and did now no longer creak with carried out pressure.

Amazon Kindle (2022) show and performance

The Amazon Kindle (2022)’s show won’t are becoming an improve in phrases of length or capability, however it has gotten a instead beneficial improve in phrases of resolution. It can now produce a miles higher 300ppi as opposed to 167ppi in its predecessor. This improve, in a manner, brings the simple Kindle on par with the greater costly Paperwhite, which has a barely larger 6.8-inch E Ink panel however with the identical 16-stage grayscale depth. The floor of the show on the brand new Kindle feels very paper-like and might nonetheless be used with out the the front mild, furnished there’s sufficient ambient mild.

The 4-LED the front mild which made its manner into the simple Kindle final year, remains gift however stays the identical in phrases of capability because it lacks the auto-adjustable heat mild function to be had with the Paperwhite, which makes for a greater desirable and snug analyzing experience. The white the front mild at the Kindle (2022) might also additionally sense a chunk harsh in comparison while analyzing at night time, however it may be toned down (0-24 levels) to a stage of your choosing. What I do leave out is the Paperwhite’s cappotential to mechanically modify the the front mild relying on the encompassing mild as other than being truly convenient, it additionally allows store battery.

Since I hate manually adjusting the brightness stage of the the front mild, I set it to stage thirteen at the Amazon Kindle (2022) for the assessment period. With approximately an hour of analyzing each night time and the Wi-Fi usually switched on, the Kindle’s battery stage slightly dropped with the aid of using 15 percentage in a week. Going with the aid of using this average, we will estimate the Kindle (2022) to final a complete month on a unmarried fee, in case you additionally comply with a comparable utilization style.

If you’re hardcore reader though (some hours of analyzing everyday), you may anticipate it to final a touch over weeks on one fee, with the front mild and Wi-Fi usually on. Charging the Kindle (2022) positive takes a whilst, that’s some thing I observed once I to start with acquired the tool. Amazon claims that a complete fee takes approximately hours the usage of a 9W adapter, and I skilled some thing comparable. The packaging handiest comes with a USB Type-C cable withinside the box.
